An English Lady and a handsome American Patriot in a battle for her heart – will she submit to the enemy?

 

A War Zone

Seduced into marriage by the wicked British general Lord Strathmore, Lady Clara Hastings is forced to leave her beloved England for the shores of the uncivilized American colonies. They arrive upon the outbreak of that young nation's struggle for independence.

 

Unexpected Revelations

Kidnapped and held for ransom by Strathmore's enemies, Clara learns of her husband's debauched pleasures and sadistic past, and discovers her own sensual needs and carnal desires.

 

A Quest For Freedom

Escaping captivity, Clara is taken by patriot fighters. In their clutches, her beliefs are challenged, her values are threatened, and she is caught up in a battle for her heart in the arms of a handsome American revolutionary.

 

Epic Passion During the American Revolution

She had never been kissed before, had never known the wonderful sensations of a man's lips and tongue tasting her own, of his hands clasping her body to press her more fully against his masculine form. It was extraordinarily delightful, but it was ever so wrong. Her hands flat on his chest, Clara tried to push him away. "Please, my lord, we are not engaged. This cannot be right."

 

The General's Wife: An American Revolutionary Tale is a high-heat historical romance set in New York of 1777. This coming of age action and adventure romance follows a young woman's journey as she discovers new desires in rebel arms. Each man she encounters enlightens her to the varieties of love, including that of a man for another man, a man for both men and women, and the excitement of mingling pain with pleasure.

 

The revolutionary romance continues...

"Winter Interlude: An American Revolutionary Novelette" appearing in Naughty Chances: Take A Chance on Romance is a prequel and interquel companion piece to The General's Wife: An American Revolutionary Tale. "Winter Interlude" delves into the relationship between Patriots Captain Samuel Taylor and Lieutenant Patrick Hamilton. Much of the action of "Winter Interlude" takes place in the gap between Chapter Twenty-Three and Chapter Twenty-Four of The General's Wife.

 

The General's Wife was a finalist for the Georgia Romance Writers' 2014 Maggie Award for Excellence.

A choice between duty and desire…

After a night of passion at Victorian England’s most notorious masquerade, Arthur Harwell knows he’s met the woman of his dreams. A wealthy viscountess with deep political connections, Lavinia is surely the perfect match for the future marquess. But tragedy has left Lavinia unable to provide Arthur with the one thing he needs: an heir. Must Arthur abandon true love to satisfy aristocratic obligations?

A Vow Reconsidered
Ever since a tragedy twenty years ago, Arthur Harwell, the Earl of Petersham, has vowed to never fall in love again—or marry. Yet a passionate encounter with a veiled woman at a masquerade inflames his hopes, and he is determined to find her. When he discovers the stranger is Lavinia, a woman for whom he already carries a torch, he is certain his future is settled.

An Old Wound
Widowed, wealthy, and well-connected, Lavinia, the Viscountess Foxley-Graham, has her pick of lovers, including the far too appealing Lord Petersham. Yet a disastrous affair twenty years prior left her heartbroken and wary. She fights her demons to allow herself to fall in love with Arthur.

A Doomed Attraction
But disaster looms anew. As heir to the Marquessate of Richmond, Arthur is required to marry—and produce an heir. Lavinia’s scandalous liaison left her with more than just sorrow—she was rendered barren. Can Arthur reconcile familial duty with the needs of the heart?

The Harwell Heirs
Victorian aristocracy has very strict rules concerning marital connections and familial obligations. But the Harwell heirs—Helena, Sophia, and Arthur—discover love doesn’t always follow the rules. Scandalous affairs force these scions of society to choose between duty and desire, deference and destiny.

Follow a motley crew on an exciting journey through space—and one adventurous young explorer who discovers the meaning of family in the far reaches of the universe—in this light-hearted debut space opera from a rising sci-fi star.

Rosemary Harper doesn’t expect much when she joins the crew of the aging Wayfarer. While the patched-up ship has seen better days, it offers her a bed, a chance to explore the far-off corners of the galaxy, and most importantly, some distance from her past. An introspective young woman who learned early to keep to herself, she’s never met anyone remotely like the ship’s diverse crew, including Sissix, the exotic reptilian pilot, chatty engineers Kizzy and Jenks who keep the ship running, and Ashby, their noble captain.

Life aboard the Wayfarer is chaotic and crazy—exactly what Rosemary wants. It’s also about to get extremely dangerous when the crew is offered the job of a lifetime. Tunneling wormholes through space to a distant planet is definitely lucrative and will keep them comfortable for years. But risking her life wasn’t part of the plan. In the far reaches of deep space, the tiny Wayfarer crew will confront a host of unexpected mishaps and thrilling adventures that force them to depend on each other. To survive, Rosemary’s got to learn how to rely on this assortment of oddballs—an experience that teaches her about love and trust, and that having a family isn’t necessarily the worst thing in the universe.

Love doesn’t always follow the rules…

In 1860, the railways of Victorian England transport American stevedore Joseph Phillips to the lush countryside of Lincolnshire…and into the arms of Lady Sophia Harwell. But Sophia is betrothed to a violent villain who wants only two things: her virginity and her dowry. Can Joseph save his beloved without scandalizing upper-class British society?

The Lady…
Lady Sophia Harwell has just been presented to Society—and its eligible bachelors—and is quite unimpressed. Her parents are encouraging the suit of the Duke of Royston, a man older than her father! Yet free-spirited Sophia is smitten with Joseph, her brother’s handsome American business partner, a man who introduces her to sensual delights beyond the bounds of propriety and the dictates of her social standing.

…And The Laborer
Joseph Phillips is out of his depth amongst the British aristocracy trying to secure investors for his American railroad enterprise. To make matters worse, he can’t keep his hands off his business partner’s sister. Sophia is far out of his league and expected to marry a duke. But when the duke reveals his villainy, Joseph decides some risks are worth taking, and, to protect Sophia, he embarks upon a partnership of an entirely unexpected nature.

Disobedience By Design was a finalist in Passionate Ink’s 10th Annual Passionate Plume Contest in Historical Erotic Romance.
