The Author's Den - Heart and Dagger
Holland, please tell us a little about yourself.
Holland Rae is the author of several works of erotic and romantic fiction in both the contemporary and historical genres, and enjoys pushing the limits of freedom, feminism, and fun in her stories. She has been an avid writer for many years, and recently moved back to her home state of New Jersey from Boston, after completing her education in journalism and creative writing. In her free time, she loves to travel, and spent several months living in a 14th century castle in the Netherlands. When not exploring the world, she likes dreaming up stories, eating spicy food, driving fast cars, and talking to strangers.
What’s your guilty writing procrastination secret?
Sometimes it’s reading! I always say I’ll reward myself with one chapter and, of course, it ends up being so much more than that! Sometimes I get really caught up in social media, which can be a huge timewaster! At least when I’m reading I’m getting smarter, right?
Where is your favourite writing spot?
Part of the reason I can’t fit any more books into my study/bedroom, is because two of the walls are entirely lined with windows, facing south-west and south-east, so I get both the rising of the morning sun and the setting of the late afternoon sun in my peripheral, without ever having to move my chair. It’s incredible beautiful and peaceful and makes my office feel like a treehouse!
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not writing?
Baking! I’m a huge baker, so I love listening to audiobooks and whipping up new projects. I also love learning new things, so classes, documentaries, museums, travel, I love all of it!
What can we look forward to with your upcoming or next writing project?
My new book, Heart and Dagger is the first story in the Ships in the Night series! I’m nearly done with the second draft of book two, Heart and Veil and I look forward to sharing that soon!
Where can we find you and your books online?

When Armand’s brother is kidnapped, he breaks his rule of never engaging with pirates. But desperation drives him to the Liberté and a life he thought he’d left far behind. He’d do anything to save Henri, but Armand never expected to find Charlotte here, and now that’s he’s found her, he doesn’t have a clue what to do about it.
Together, they must face kidnapping, pirate captains, blackmail, and themselves. The Liberté may sail thousands of miles from the shores of England, but that might not be far enough to escape the past.
