COVER REVEAL! The Jezebel is on her way...

Here’s Maisie Taskill, THE JEZEBEL, beautifully realised in this new cover designed by the wonderfully talented Daqri Bernardo I adore the covers Daqri designed for this series, they’re so perfect for the books! :)
THE JEZEBEL is book 3 in the Witches of Scotland series (erotic historical romance set in the times of the witch trials in Scotland) and this edition is now available to reserve a digital copy at the #bookbargain pre-publication price #99pennies. It'll come out in print too on publication day, March 1st 2018. You can read the first chapter here on my website.

Here's the blurb!

Once unleashed, a witch’s carnal curiosity knows no bounds…

Fleeing from those with unscrupulous interest in her magic, Maisie Taskill’s goal is to find safety in the highlands of Scotland, with her kin. In order to gain passage from London to her homeland she plans to win over a rugged sea captain with the only currency she has: her virginity. With her enemies on her heels, Maisie has never needed a hero more. Captain Roderick Cameron might be her man.

Maisie submits to Roderick’s raw sexuality in search of protection, but their initial attraction grows into unbridled desire, unleashing devastating powers within her. Then the journey takes a dangerous turn, because the superstitious crew are unhappy at having a woman on board.

With Maisie’s wealthy sponsor giving chase, Roderick must stay one step ahead of the British Navy before Maisie’s seductive magic causes a full-scale mutiny. He may believe he has full command of his ship, but with a potent witch aboard he’s about to get much more than he bargained for.

Throwback Thursday - Victoriana in Whitby

Old photo alert! #throwbackthursday comes from the late 1990s today, and this was taken in Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast, atop the cliff in the graveyard of St Mary's.

I'm in one of my beloved Victoriana dressups and I was there for the Whitby Gothic Festival. Happy days!  #tbt

#tbt #throwbackthursday Back to 2011 this week and a selection of snaps for fellow costume fans and historical buffs! These are costumes from The Tudors TV series, shown in a special exhibition held at the Royal Armouries in Leeds, West Yorkshire. 

I loved having the chance to see these costumes up close, but, oh my, they were so petite.. .they made me feel like a giantess …lol! 

If you’re interested in the costume notes and who wore what you can still find details if you scroll down on this page: https://royalarmouries.org/the-tudors





COVER REVEAL! Here’s Lennox Taskill...!

THE LIBERTINE is an erotic historical romance - book two in the Witches of Scotland series, now beautifully rebranded by Daqri Bernardo. Lennox himself didn’t appear on the original cover but he really makes his presence felt on this one!  Love that quirky smile, it’s so right for this character.
The new edition publishes February 1st but is now available to reserve a digital copy at the special pre-publication price of 99pennies, along with THE HARLOT, both will cost more after publication dates. The series will come out in print on publication dates. You can read the first chapter and find links here on my website.
Here's the blurb!
THE LIBERTINE Scotland: 1715. His witchcraft could save her from ruin, or guide her swiftly to it…Lennox Taskill is a rogue, a seducer, and a powerful witch. He has seen his kind scorned and persecuted, and hunts endlessly for his sisters, Jessie and Maisie. His only other loyalty is to his coven, who he wants to take north to safety in the highlands as soon as he reunites with his sisters.
Lennox’s disdain for humanity is sealed by the searing memory of his mother burning at the stake. So when the wife of a wealthy local landlord comes seeking his help through magic, the beguiling Chloris Keavey presents Lennox with his greatest opportunity for distraction…and revenge.
Chloris is in danger of being turned out by her heartless husband because she has not provided him an heir. She vows to find a way through witchcraft, but soon surrenders to Lennox’s seductive magic in more ways than one. Her desire for Lennox overwhelms her, and her fragile heart is at risk. But with a witch hunt brewing, Lennox and Chloris are soon risking everything for their forbidden nights of ecstasy…and to protect the secret that could cost them their lives.

Home!

I'm home! Back from hospital last week after three weeks as an inpatient. It was a much longer stay and more difficult surgery than I’d anticipated, so I’m very glad to be home! A huge thank you for all the lovely messages sent via Facebook and Twitter. They kept me going. I’ve got to be patient with a long slow convalescence ahead, specialist nurses coming in every few days to make sure everything is going according to plan. But I'm now feeling up to keeping up with social media etc and looking forward to following my pals and groups again 
On the writing front, while I was offline I had a bunch of rights of reverted for my Scottish witches books, so with the help of Daqri Bernardo from Covers by Combs the books will be beautifully rebranded and listed towards the end of the year. Gorgeous Daqri covers to share soon  Looking into 2018 I’ve got a new series called Coded for Love that I'm looking forward to sharing with you. So despite everything the old brain is still working on the ideas  They won't let me go, never 
Once again many thanks to everyone for the messages. I'm looking forward to catching up with you all. Hugs.

Off line for a while.

Hey pals, I’m on my way into hospital tomorrow for surgery on Wednesday morning. Any good wishes you can send my way will be much appreciated, each and every one! I’m dreading this, because of massive post-surgery complications two years ago. Despite the fear, I’m hopeful too.

I’ll likely be off social media for 7-10 days. After a few days I may be able to look at my gmail. I’ll try to post an update as soon as I can. Meanwhile, I’ve arranged for a couple of my books to be on sale for 99 pennies at all retailers while I’m away: MONICA'S SECRET and SORCERESS. Click on the titles and the links will be there.

Stay strong, read good books, and if luck is on my side I’ll see you all soon!

French and Italian translations of RAMPANT are live!

RAMPANT is now live in both French and Italian translations, digi and print. Yaaay!

Sortilegio d'estate

Zoe Daniels è una segretaria superefficiente, razionale e piena di buonsenso, che trascorre una sospirata settimana di ferie in un delizioso paesino sulla costa scozzese...
La sua vacanza non si preannuncia esattamente all'insegna del relax; una strana atmosfera di eccitazione erotica pervade la villetta che ha affittato, anche a causa di un misterioso e conturbante vicino, Grayson Murdoch, un professore universitario i cui interessi di ricercatore permettono a Zoe di allargare i suoi orizzonti verso una dimensione magica e sensuale. Tra apparizioni, riti dionisiaci e magia nera, Zoe si trova coinvolta in un sortilegio che dovrebbe riportare in vita l'anima di una strega. E se lo spirito che vuole impossessarsi del suo corpo è quello di una donna passionale, l'esperienza di Zoe assume i connotati di un viaggio nel mondo dell'eros più sfrenato.

Envoûtement 

A peine Zoë a-t-elle atteint le petit village de Carbrey, perdu au nord de l'Ecosse, qu'elle se sent envahie par d'étranges sensations. Vibrant d'une énergie nouvelle, intensément sensuelle, elle a l'impression, sur cette terre mystérieuse, de devenir une autre femme. Bien plus désirable, et surtout follement désirante. Loin, très loin de la jeune femme sage qu'elle était à Londres... Est-ce bien elle qui, incapable de résister au désir brutal qui l'anime, ne peut trouver l'apaisement que sous les caresses de son ténébreux voisin, Grayson Murdoch ? Elle encore, la maîtresse insatiable qui, prête à tout pour éteindre le feu qui la dévore, soutient les regards lourds de désir de tous ceux qu'elle croise, ces hommes et ces femmes au comportement étrange qui la troublent au plus haut point ? Comme si on l'avait ensorcelée... Et pourquoi pas ? Tout, ici, ne parle-t-il pas de légendes, de magie et de force tellurique, capables de réveiller les désirs les plus enfouis ?
