ABOUT GEORGIA LECARRE

Georgia Le Carre Georgia Le Carre lives in England, in an old 19th century romantic cottage surrounded by a magical garden filled with fruit and walnut trees.  When she is not feeding words into her laptop, she is either curled up in bed with a box of chocolates and a good read, or lost in a long walk in the woods. Especially on moonlit nights.  And often with the man of her dreams.

Her latest book is the romance/erotica, The Billionaire Banker.







ABOUT THE BILLIONAIRE BANKER

The Billionaire Banker Title: The Billionaire Banker
Genre: Romance/Erotica
Author: Georgia Le Carre
Publisher: Georgia Le Carre
Format: eBook

When Lana Bloom learns the devastating news that her mother is dying, she is faced with a terrible dilemma.  The one thing that can save her is the one thing she does not have.  For young and innocent Lana, the unthinkable becomes her only choice.
But when she walks through the door of that exclusive restaurant she has no idea of the seismic shift her life is about to take, for the highest bidder will not be the rich man she has accompanied.  Fate drops her at the feet of the deeply mysterious and dazzlingly gorgeous American banker, Blake Law Barrington.  Throbbing with raw masculinity and arrogance, this is a man who owns all that he pursues.
And now he wants her.

  1. Georgia, this question is about life living in a cottage in England, what is that like and were you born and raised in England? I am from the United States and I have never been to England, but I have always dreamed of going one day but it is a dream right now. I am fascinated about living in a cottage in England and what it would be like to live there. Thank you very much for your time Georgia and I look forward to reading your book.
    Blessings,
    Jody

    1. Hey Jody, You have never lived in a cottage in England and always wondered what it might be like and I have always wondered what it might be like to live in a such vast country with such great open spaces like America :) Sometimes I watch movies and America seems so alluring with such clear blue skies. Here it is almost always gray. The time between spring and summer is the most beautiful though, when the fox cubs snap bees and wasps in half between their little teeth, the roses are blooming, and I can throw open all the windows all day long. One day Jody you must here and realise your dream. xx

    1. Well Tori,
      I was reading a very popular book about a billionaire called Christian, you might have heard of it :)
      Anyway, that billionaire had a habit of drinking Chablis and Sancerre! And I said to myself - that's no real billionaire. So I wrote the billionaire banker - about a man who thinks nothing of spending thousands on a bottle of wine. Blake Law Barrington was born.

  3. Hi Georgia! What process do you take to write your novel? Any rituals you do?

    Replies
    1. The ritual is very simple Nicole. I try my best to put off writing for as long as possible. I mess about until I can no longer justify putting it off and then very reluctantly settle down and start...sharpening my pencils...LOL

  5. Ok, being that I know a few haven't been special enough to read both yet...I'll ask a vague question...What made you take a turn to the "dark side" with the story and where do you foresee the out come? Please say that someone gets a dose of her own medicine...I swear I can't stand Victoria...URGH!!! (LOL)....Lot of hugs!!!!

    1. If you are willing to do anything for money then you are naturally aligned with the dark side. Authors of romance book generally tend to white wash that unpleasant aspect of billionaires. I decided not to. I foresee dark and white living together. As for the nasty little viper, she gets what all vindictive vipers get.

    1. Hey Alice,
      I love all of Cormack McCarthy and Margaret Atwood's books. And off the top of my head, Money by Martin Amis.

  7. Hi Georgia,
    My question may seem a little odd. Have you ever know a millionaire or billionaire which may have given you some ideas for your book?

    1. Yes, I have known millionaires but not billionaires. Billionaires are a whole different species all together, Gayle.

  8. Congrats on your book! Of course, I'm intrigued of what Lana doesn't have that could save her mother, but I'm assuming it's money. The question is, how does she get it? I guess I'll have to read the book. Georgia, what book(s) are you currently reading right now?

    Replies
    1. Thank you. You assume right. She gets in the oldest way known to women. Right now I am reading The Last Empress by Keith Laider. A beautifully researched book.

    1. Hey Sapphyria,

  10. Hi Georgia, I'm new to your books and sadly have not yet read any of them. Your teaser sounds so intriguing I know I'll be adding this to my huge TBR pile (probably sneaking it up on top - shhhh)
    My question - when you get stuck (if you get stuck lol) what do you do to refresh yourself and get ideas flowing to get the story rolling again?

    1. When I get stuck, I go for a long, long walk and invariably the solutions slips into my mind. Sometimes I will get into the shower. That works too. Like a Eureka moment in running water. LOL

  12. First let me say I am JEALOUS you live in England in a cottage that is just too cool! Where do your ideas for books come from? Do you have any rituals that you "have" to do before you start writing? Like pen and paper near by a cup of coffee lol? What do you like to do in your spare time when you have it?

    1. Ha, ha.. Autumn jealous Georgia... No way. You come along and make the trees change colour, push the mushrooms out of the soil, ripen the chestnuts, and put all the soft plants to sleep.

  13. Nice bio, but I must admit I would be lost. I am a beach lover and cannot do without my fix of sunshine. I always like reading about authors, their inspiration.....I couldn't help but laugh at your answer to Nicole. Whatever works, use it. ^_^ I have recently become a little character driven and wonder who is your favorite and why. I have not read your book, so I may not understand it all, but I am still curious. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    1. Ah a beach babe... Nice. I guess I like Jack Irish the best. I like the idea of a deep, a man who cannot be fathomed. A man that can hide a secret that would break another man for year and years.

  14. Strength. A must have. Now...what secret is he keeping. You have made me very curious. ^_^

  15. Hi Georgia! I'm new to your books but The Billionaire Banker looks great and is definitely going on my to-be-read list! Also, in bed with a good book, chocolates, or a walk in the woods? I think you might be my twin. ;)

    1. What an interesting question. Books are portals to other worlds where you get to choose. Ribena or red wine?

  17. Hi Georgia! I'm wondering if you had any particular people in mind when you drafted Lana and Blake physically. Also, as individuals on the inside, are they based on actual people at all, and whom, if you don't mind sharing?

    1. Most of my characters are composites of people I have known and my own fantasies of how people should behave in a given circumstance. That's the boring answer, anyway... but the truth, Laila...hmmmm

  18. Interesting premise. Looking forward to it.
