Two noble lords seeking their mates.

Are you a subscriber to Kindle Unlimited? Then look out for two of my books. The Highlander’s Mate and His Lordship’s Mate are now available on KU. Both books are historical paranormals set in the Regency period. One Scottish, the other Welsh. Eighteen-year-old Ella Bailey knows that if she is to have any hope of a good match, she must marry quickly before her father completes the ruin of her … Read more…

An Appropriate Gentleman – #satspanks

I didn’t plan on writing a sequel to His Lordship’s Mate, but when a fellow author mentioned a potential couple in the book, I took the bait and turned it into The Highlander’s Mate. The books are paired, rather than a series, and can be read independently. In the opening of The Highlander’s Mate, Claire and Felix Hughes are already courting. Their story actually began in His Lordship’s Mate, when they … Read more…

Good lass – #satspanks

Last week I shared the beginning of a spanking – here’s the end of it. *** The last whack met the crease of her thighs and she yelped, having correctly anticipated he’d given her the final blow with a measure of force. Somehow, she’d survived the tawse. “Four. Good lass.” She lay still, relaxing her grip on the table. What now? How could she convince him she could endure more than … Read more…

The Scottish implement – an introduction to the tawse

tawse

I might have cheated with one of the scenes in my latest release. The Highlander’s Mate is set in 1815 in the Scottish Highlands and I wrote a spanking scene using an implement that originated in Scotland: the tawse (pronounced tours). I’m not entirely sure when it was invented but it might have been later than the setting for my book. The leather tawse was supposedly invented by a Scot for … Read more…

The Highlander’s Mate – #satspanks

Out this weekend, my latest historical spanking romance, The Highlander’s Mate, is set in the Highlands of Scotland during the Regency period and yes, there is a little paranormal twist too! For those who read His Lordship’s Mate, then you’ll will have already met Felix and Claire – this is their story and unfortunately for Claire, currently, it isn’t going exactly to plan. *** Over her shoulder, he could see … Read more…

Waiting for bed – #wipitup

  My Highland adventure is due out at the end of this week. To keep the heat factor up, I’m sharing a preview. Claire is travelling with her newly wedded husband and the excitement is getting to her. *** Now, riding on the waggon, her head drooped. Behind Claire’s back the buckboard had been covered with an awning and sides to provide shelter if it rained. Felix had also taken … Read more…

The beast within – #wipitup

How long can he wait?  Felix needs all his self-control to hold off. A snippet from my current work in progress, which is provisionally called The Highlander’s Mate. The clue in the title, yes, it’s Scottish and it’s also Regency and Paranormal. Something for everyone! *** When she bared herself by removing the protective blanket, he almost glanced away. However, it was her gift to him—her body, unasked, unashamedly offered. … Read more…
