A.S. Fenichel gave up a successful career in New York City to follow her husband to Texas and pursue her lifelong dream of being a professional writer. She’s never looked back.

A.S. adores writing stories filled with love, passion, desire, magic and maybe a little mayhem tossed in for good measure. Books have always been her perfect escape and she still relishes diving into one and staying up all night to finish a good story.

Multi-published in historical, paranormal, erotic and contemporary romance, A.S. is the author of The Forever Brides series, the Everton Domestic Society series, and more. With several books currently contracted, A.S. will be bringing you her brand of edgy romance for years to come.

Originally from New York, she grew up in New Jersey, and now lives in the Southern Missouri with her real-life hero, her wonderful husband. When not reading or writing she enjoys cooking, travel, history, puttering in her garden and spoiling her fussy cat.

Can a broken engagement ignite the spark of true love?

Sylvia Dowder had almost made it to the altar when her fiancé unexpectedly became a viscount, and dropped her like a stale crumpet to make a more “suitable” match. Though Sylvia’s heart has been crushed, her spirit has not. She puts her wits and social savvy to use as a secret gossip columnist—and as the Everton Domestic Society’s party planner to the ton. Luckily, she’s not in danger of ever falling for an aristocrat again…

Especially not one like Anthony Braighton, Earl of Grafton. Raised in America, Anthony sees no reason to marry when he can enjoy all the perks of being an eligible earl. Determined to convince his family he doesn’t need a wife, he hires Sylvia to act as hostess and decorator for upcoming parties. Yet Sylvia is as adept at captivating his interest as she is at beautifying his home. And despite this Everton lady’s aversion to titled men, some attractions can’t be denied—and love rarely does go where it’s told . . .






Would you call yourself a born writer?

No. I struggled through school, probably because I had very bad eyesight and no one realized until I was six. This left me pretty far behind other students. I was painfully shy, so that didn’t help.

What was your inspiration for A Lady’s Virtue?

Anthony Braighton and Sylvia Dowder first come to life in Tainted Bride. They have been after me for years to tell their story.

What themes do you like to explore in your writing?

I like to write about empowered women regardless of the era. I also love men who aren’t threatened by a woman being smart, strong and wise.

How long did it take you to complete the novel?

About three months from outline to ready for a beta reader.

Are you disciplined? Describe a typical writing day.

I usually write for a couple of hours in the morning and a couple in the afternoon. There’s a lot of other business item that need doing in between. If I’m behind and have a deadline looming, I’ll write in the evening too. I’m pretty disciplined. In my opinion, writers write.

What did you find most challenging about writing this book?

I had to grow Anthony up. When we first meet him, he’s only twenty-two. He’s headstrong and carefree. So, like with children, it was hard for me to see him any other way. I had to allow him to mature and become a man. It was difficult but a great learning experience.

What do you love most about being an author?

I love the moment before I put a single word on the page. That blank screen staring back at me is filled with endless possibilities. I know some authors find that moment daunting, but I love it.

Did you go with a traditional publisher, small press, or did you self publish? What was the process like and are you happy with your decision?

I’m published with Kensington Publishing. I’ve been with them since 2014 and have been extremely happy. They treat me like family.
