"Bewitching nod to the Memoirs of A Woman of Pleasure"

It's just a few days until THE HARLOT's official publication date, and the book is already in stock and shipping from various on line retail sites. This is both exciting and nerve wracking!! :-)

The Harlot is an important book for me, my first big historical for Harlequin and the first of a series of three linked books set in Scotland at the time of the witch trials. I loved this story, and of course I'm hoping that readers will love it too. Several ARC reviewers have posted comments at Good Reads and other review sites, and this initial response has been really encouraging. It's also been reviewed at Amazon and other places by the legendary Harriet Klausner, who had some observations that made me GRIN!
This is an exciting, enticing eighteenth century romance with a touch of whimsical witchcraft. The lead couple is an ideal pairing of an obsessed avenger and a vigorous harlot who understands supply and demand as her body is the only commodity she can sell without being burned to death. Readers will appreciate Saskia Walker's bawdy historical with a bewitching nod to the Memoirs of A Woman of Pleasure.

My biggest influence in writing this erotic novel was Fanny Hill -- a book I adore! -- and I was delighted when someone picked that up.

There are a couple of givewaways running. Two copies up for grabs over at Erotica For All, and a five copy giveaway at Good Reads, both of which close on the 1st June.
