A little bit of trivia.

The heroine in An Affair with the Viscount is a working actress. Interested to find out how she would know when to wake up I researched what people did before the advent of alarm clocks.

If you were ever curious about this, here're some things people used.

  • Candle + the nail.

Yes, people would insert a nail (or several) into the candle. Once the candle burned letting the nail fall, the harsh sound of the nail hitting the metal candle holder would wake the person up.

  • The knocker-uppers.

This was a privilege of those more wealthy who could actually hire people to knock on their windows and wake them up. It's a historical version of a wake-up call. Who woke up the knocker-uppers? That is an interesting question to be answered.

  • The bladder

And the most primitive yet common solution was drinking 1-2 glasses of water before bed and relying on nature to do its thing.

New Releases from my friends:


To get his revenge, he needs a fiancée...

Nicholas, Lord Dowding, is a dangerous and reckless man. For more than five years, revenge has been the earl's only goal as he traveled England seeking to ruin the lives of those who once wronged his family.

Earning himself the moniker "Earl of Deception" for his deadly, scheming ways, Nicholas is close to putting the past to rest once and for all. The only problem? He'll need a woman by his side to do it.

To play the role of a lifetime, she'll bargain her heart... 

Her education could never have prepared the romantic dreamer Miss Jenny Clifton,, for a man like Nicholas. When the earl arrives at the school to call in a favor she never expected to have to repay, Jenny is quickly caught up in a dangerous game where she must first pose as his fiancée.

Nicholas is dashing but ruthless, and his heart is heavily scarred by his past when he asks Jenny to pose as his fiancée. But she can't help being drawn to this man who blazes with passion wherever he goes.

The greatest deception of all...

She's just a lovestruck silly schoolgirl who owes him a favor. Their burgeoning friendship is a bonus, but what he requires of her is strictly business. It's a simple enough plan—in theory.

…Is between a man and his unruly heart.

But Nicholas finds Jenny is one entanglement he cannot easily escape. While the girl is vexingly naive and innocent, she also burns with a beauty and sensuality that makes his heart beat faster. Soon Nicholas finds himself brought to his knees by a woman who holds a power even greater than that of deception: love.

Lady Edith knows the sting of unrequited love, and now she wants only one thing—to marry a man who desires her or to never marry. But at the Season’s end, her father threatens to provide a husband if she cannot secure one herself. When a family friend saves her from the unwanted advances of one of their suitors, she falls a little bit in love. With his auburn hair and radical ideas about women, Griffin Paxton, the Earl of Eastern, is perfect. Except he doesn’t want her back.

Griffin will not be distracted by Lady Edith’s diamond-eyed beauty. He needs a wife to fulfill his dying father’s wish, and he needs her to be a model of propriety to repair the family reputation his rakish father sullied. When Lady Edith calls herself a rake, he knows she’ll never do. He’ll have to guard his attraction to her fiery spirit and open heart behind thick ice walls and look elsewhere.

But when Edith suggests they forge a fake engagement to appease both their fathers, Griffin can’t refuse. She needs his help, and he never ignores a damsel in distress. Will a fake courtship bring out their rakish desires, or will it offer a home to two hurting hearts?


Have a great week!
