Newly arrived in Britannia from Rome, Antonia is inexplicably drawn to the cold, tough Celt who ignites a passion she long thought died at the hands of her brutal former husband. She knows her growing feelings for him can lead nowhere. But when a shadow from her past threatens her future Antonia is torn between the Empire of her birth and betraying Gawain, the man she’s grown to love.


BLOODLUST DENIED
Release Date to be advised.



Lured by blood, driven by lust, Alexius is fascinated by the dark haired seductress who shows no fear and refuses to obey his every command. Entranced by such novelty he denies his rabid bloodlust. Instead he’ll keep her to warm his bed until he tires of her ready tongue and tempting body.

Immortal vampire hunter Morana has never mistaken her prey before. But the dark stranger mesmerizes her, enticing her to forget everything but the dangerous pleasure she finds in his arms, until reality intrudes and she flees his addictive embrace.

When Alexius unexpectedly find her again he’s determined to exact retribution for the way she vanished three years ago. Abduction, bondage and decadent seduction feature in his plans, but before the sun rises dynamics have shifted and he’s the one fighting the silken bonds of captivity.

But as they fall under each other’s erotic spell the past and present collide and unless they discover the truth behind the lies, Death will triumph once more.

But within days of meeting Connor her frozen heart thaws and once again she imagines a future filled with love and passion.

But when Aila’s father returns to his kingdom, and Connor delivers the message from his king, Aila becomes a pawn in a deadly game of politics and betrayal.

first Regency romance release

SCANDAL'S MISTRESS


Review: Night Owl Reviews:

Scandal's Mistress is the first book that I had read from author Bronwyn Stuart. I was very impressed with this short story. What it lacked in length it more than made up for with the powerful emotions exhibited by the two main characters. I found myself hating to say goodbye to Justin & Carmalina.

Justin Trentham has been trying for years to force his uncaring family into dis-owning him. Then he comes up with his grandest scheme yet. He will take Italian opera singer Carmalina Belluccini as his mistress. But people sometimes aren't what they seem. What starts out as a simple business arrangement soon has these two vulnerable souls contemplating a more permanent arrangement. A surprise twist at the end will shed some light on the family dynamics that will explain Justin's drastic actions.

I really enjoyed this book. It left me craving more of the lead characters story. The author displayed a true talent for making the reader "feel" for her characters. I highly recommend this story for all fans of the historical romance genre. I’m looking forward to more books from this promising author.

PORTRAIT OF A SCANDAL



The one man she desires is the one man she can never marry, for if he knew the truth about her scandalous past, he would despise her.

During a time when women are required to be appealing, well mannered, but never opinionated, Lady Nellie struggles to find her place. She believes in speaking her mind, not caring if her words offend others, or how unladylike she seems. Yet one man, whom she primarily despises, finds her sharp tongue intriguing rather than uncivil.

Lord Sterling is heir to a dukedom and it is time he is married, yet all the girls of the season are dull and lifeless, to his mind. Well, all apart from Lady Nellie. Her flowered words are laced with insults—insults that, rather than offending him, set his mind into a flutter, wondering if the passion in her voice will be as strong in the bedroom.


Joanna Lloyd has sold her FIRST novel
BEYOND INNOCENCE
to Crimson Romance



In 1819, a woman’s word is worthless against a man’s. Unjustly accused of fraud by her uncle, Viscount Gascombe, Electra Shipley finds herself on a transport ship bound for the penal colony of New South Wales. When free settler, William Radcliffe, exercises his right to a convict wife, she accepts a marriage of convenience to escape incarceration and clear her name.

As a powerful attraction draws them together, the travails of the wild penal colony and its native inhabitants test their courage, their integrity and their ability to trust each other. And how can she stay when his ex-fiancee arrives in the colony with his bastard child?

But Electra has her own dark secret. Her uncle’s furtive fumblings when she was a child have led her to fear intimacy with a man, causing her to violently repel William’s advances. When Electra is kidnapped, the past is obliterated as they both fight for their love and their future.

What a FANTASTIC round up this month.
Congratulations everyone!
