AUSSIE MONTH with Jennifer St George
Describe yourself in one word:
Tell us about Billionaire’s Passionate Revenge:
The Billionaire’s Passionate Revenge is the third book in my Billionaire Romance series. This book is a bit of a departure from the other two as it is set almost exclusively in the heroine’s ancestral home, Ravensdale Manor, in Devon, England. The other two books in the series, The Billionaire’s Pursuit of Love and Tempted by the Billionaire Tycoon, feature trips to exotic, glamorous locations like Brunei and Paris. Although, in Billionaire #3 there is a spicy trip to London that plays out in a gorgeous suite at The Savoy. I love that hotel.
What inspired this novel?
I based Ravensdale Manor on the many stately homes I visited when I lived in England. I loved heading out from London on weekends and exploring the incredible English history. Visiting place like Hever Castle, the childhood home of Anne Boleyn, or Blenheim Palace, the birthplace and ancestral home of Sir Winston Churchill, just fantastic.
Xavier’s character has been in my head for at least five years. I’m thrilled I’ve finally got him out on the page. I have to admit I’m a little in love with him. He’s suffered so much tragedy and betrayal but gets up and keeps going. I love his determination, passion and his incredible kindness. And Zara. She’s in big, big trouble, but you’ll have to read all about it to find out why! So hope you enjoy the final installment of my billionaire series.
What are you reading right now?
Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan.
Number one thing to do on your bucket list?
Win the lotto and buy a chateau in France.
Best thing about being an Aussie?
I think I only realised the best thing about being an Aussie was when I lived overseas. I realised we are friendly, optimistic and generally can get on with almost anyone.
What you want readers to know about the romance genre?
A great way to escape the everyday!
What have you got in store for your readers in 2016?
I’ve begun a series with hot ex-military men as the heroes, so I hope to bring that to readers in 2016.
What were your big achievements of 2015?
Launching into the self-publishing world was a big achievement in 2015. Six other Aussie and New Zealand romance authors , Rachel Bailey, Michelle Douglas, Stefanie London, Helen Lacey, Kandy Shepherd and Louisa George, and I created an exciting independently published Christmas Anthology – Hot Christmas Nights. Not only am I so proud of what we’ve done, but the process was amazing. Working with these wonderful writers was truly inspiring!
