A Measured Risk:
He is her most dangerous temptation. Now he’s demanding her submission. Dare she take the risk?

Emotionally
scarred in the horrific accident that took her husband’s life, Lady
Cranfield is imprisoned by her lingering terror of horses and carriages.
She’s fascinated by the Earl of Ruel. She believes that he can teach
her bravery.

And now she’s willing to risk almost anything-her reputation, even her virtue-to find out. But what he proposes startles her.

Ruel
instantly senses that shy Lady Cranfield could be the sweetest, most
submissive experience of a lifetime-if only he can gain her total and
complete trust. He offers his help in return for her submission and
obedience.

Neglected as a child by her ducal parents then later
ignored by her handsome, charming husband, Lady Cranfield learnt to
protect her heart at all costs. She trusts no one but herself.

How will the jaded Earl of Ruel break through her self-protective defences and earn her trust and submission?
~~~~

Trust Me:
Anne
and Jon’s love was born in isolation. Necessity thrusts them back into
Society. There are those who will stop at nothing to tear apart the
fragile bond between the newlyweds.

As external foes close ranks,
how will Lady and Lord Ruel learn to overcome their personal demons and
trust each whilst keeping their love, and her sanity, intact?

~~~

Perilous Risk:
Blackmailed
by a vicious, powerful aristocrat, common-born, gentle-natured Rebecca
Howland is in desperate need of help. From the shadows steps forth a man
offering her aid–a man she once rejected. A changed man with a dark,
mysterious past.

Stephen Drake lost Rebecca long ago. Now a spy
for the Crown, with power, funds and a title, he’s been assigned to
follow Rebecca. His old passion for her flares and his darkly erotic
side—one he’s fought to keep hidden for many years–awakens with a
vengeance. This time, he’s determined to possess her forever.

But as danger surrounds them, the two lovers must face secrets that could destroy them and the fragile trust they’ve built.

~~

The Delicate Matter of Lady Blayne:
Driven
to the brink of madness by love for her late husband, a young man too
ill to meet the demands of the marriage bed, Lady Blayne teeters on the
brink of scandal. Now she faces the temptation of a man she once
rejected—husband’s cousin and heir, James, the new Lord Blayne. His
sensual appeal, iron will and stern self-mastery fascinates her. What if
sensual indulgence is the only way out of her darkness? However, those
she loves the most control the young widow through manipulation and
coercion.

Honor bound to protect Lady Blayne, James will not risk
his heart. He must wed a socially appropriate heiress. Scandalously
self-indulgent Lady Blayne won’t do. Yet the pretty girl he once knew
has grown into a beautiful, curvaceous woman—every man’s dream.
Especially his.

~~~

Miranda’s Dilemma:
Poised to become
Mayfair’s most expensive courtesan, Miss Miranda Jones finds her rise
inexplicably blocked by a socially powerful nobleman. Scorned by her
ducal father and determined to attain everything that life has denied
her, she’s not about to let this arrogant earl stop her.
Adrian
Sutherland, the Earl of Danvers, saw his father destroyed by a
heartless, predatory courtesan. He has no time or patience for such
nightbirds. He’s far too busy restoring his family’s wealth and
reputation whilst doing what he can to protect his friends from the
clutches of London’s scheming courtesans.
Then a moment of
compassion turns intense dislike to breathless passion, and these two
strong-willed, fiercely proud people indulge in a brief affair. Each is
convinced that they can satisfy their craving without emotional risk.

These scorchingly hot historical romances contain darker, angsty themes
and frequent love scenes with frank sexual language, description,
aspects of light BDSM and aspects of abuse in the characters’
backstories.

THE HIRING FAIR

part of The Wild Rose Press’ “Help Wanted Series”by Laura Strickland

Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Genre: Historical Romance

perf5.000x8.000.indd

perf5.000x8.000.inddBrutally dispossessed during the Highland Clearances, Tam Sutherland comes to the hiring fair at Oban, Scotland hoping to find a job for the season. But his maimed right hand, inflicted by the same cruel factor responsible for his parents’ deaths, means he’s one of few men available when the beautiful woman makes her surprising announcement: she’s looking not for a hand but a husband, not just for the season but forever.
Annie MacCallum is under threat from a brutal factor also, back at her home farm—one who preys on unmarried women. If she’s to protect all those who rely on her, including her beloved animals, she must have a husband, if only in name. Secretly glad when the attractive Tam takes up her proposition, she doesn’t realize she’s dragging him into a situation that will trigger old demons. Nor does she expect to give him her heart.
 
perf5.000x8.000.indd
In a low tone he asked, “This marriage you ha’ in mind, will it be legal wi’ no banns being read?”
“Father Alban is an old friend of my uncle, and I ha’ spoken to him of this. He will accommodate me.”
“Aye, and what will your uncle think o’ this scheme of yours?”
“Very little, I imagine. He is dead.”
Sutherland contemplated that without comment.
St. Lyon’s church loomed ahead, appearing all at once out of the swirling snow. Annie turned to Jockie.
“You lead Old Rake round back and join us inside where you can get warm, eh?”
Jockie nodded and clattered off.
Annie turned to Sutherland and looked into his face, only to be struck again by how handsome he looked. But that had naught to do with anything, and she could not let it sway her good sense, not when she’d come so far.
“Before we go inside, I want to be sure I ha’ your understanding. This is no’ an ordinary marriage but something more in the manner of a hiring, which is why I came to the fair in the first place.”
He inclined his shaggy head toward her slightly. “A hiring wi’out wages. That is against the law, you do ken.”
She swept him with her gaze. “And are you a man to adhere to arbitrary laws? I confess, I did no’ get that impression.”
“And,” he returned, “are you a woman who needs to hire a husband?” He echoed her. “I confess, I did no’ get that impression.” He returned her stare, slow and attentive. “You are certainly bonnie enough to snare a husband the usual way.”
To her surprise, Annie felt a wave of heat course through her. “I do no’ want a usual kind o’ husband. I want one who will tak’ my orders and stay clear o’ my bed. Be sure you are that man before we go inside and speak these vows.”
One of Sutherland’s eyebrows quirked up. “I was right at the outset; you are mad.”
“So we ha’ already determined,” Annie agreed, beginning to grow edgy again. What if he refused at this late moment? Where would she find a substitute, with the market now deserted and the snow falling? Besides, she discovered she did not want a substitute; for reasons she did not quite understand, she wanted this man and no other.
“There is a story behind this,” he said mildly. “I confess, I would like to hear it.”
“Perhaps you shall, but not now—there is no time.” Annie drew a breath and sought to deny the fear rising inside her, the fear that he might walk away from her after all.
But that curious smile crossed his lips again.
“Are you coming wi’ me?” she pressed.
“It seems a damned clever way to secure the services of a farm worker whilst paying no wages,” he said. “But aye, for all that, I will come along wi’ you.”

Tough enough to survive a squad of automatons? Well, just maybe.

MY THOUGHTS:
The Hiring Fair by Laura Strictland is a captivating and mesmerizing Scottish Romance set in 1810 Oban, Scotland during a time of the Highland Clearances. (Help Wanted Series).

The characters are flawed, but engaging and captivating. The storyline is unique, intriguing and utterly fascinating. A twist on the usual male looking for a wife. This one is a woman looking for a husband who will be a handiman, only.

In “The Hiring Fair”, Annie MacCallum, a healer, with a special, but dangerous “gift”, goes on Market Day seeking a husband. Enter, Tam Sutherland, a misplaced Highlander of the Clearances, who has suffered the brutality of the Clearances, where his hand was severely damaged and gnarled. Tam is hired to be her husband, but only as her handiman, Anna’s not seeking a husband in the true sense of the word, but they are quickly married. However,things definitely change between them, when hearts get involved.

Ned Randleigh, the evil factor, acting on behalf of the Laird, or so it’s believed. The Laird who is every sick and in Edinburgh, unaware of what’s happening in his absence.

Anna is being plagued by the vicious Ned, who takes advantage of the unmarried women of the village with brutality and cruelty. Which, is why Anna seeks a husband, hoping to dissuade Ned’s advances.

Ned Randleigh, the evil factor, acting on behalf of the Laird, or so it’s believed. Ned is determined to have Anna at all cost. If he can’t have her in his bed, he is willing to destroy those she holds dearest, including having her declared a”witch”, to have her in his bed and under his control. Will he kill her new husband, and destroy all she holds dear? Or can he be stopped before he destroys Tam, Anna and a way of life?

Fast paced, complex, emotionally charged, with brutality, sacrifice, vengeance, passion, a menagerie of wounded souls, both humans and animals, and the magic of faith, trust and love. Many twists and turns takes the reader on an emotional thrill ride, throughout. I was in tears, and my angst for these Highlanders was intense, I could not imagine what these women, especially, went though. Your heart will bleed for them, the horrors they faced, as well as their familes, the angst they must have faced, all due to the evils of one man, Ned, the factor.

“The Hiring Fair” is an awesome read! I enjoy Ms. Strictland’s stories, but, have to said, this was one of her best yet, to me. But, then I enjoy Highland stories, the magic of love and trust. Tissues needed! All I can say is WOW! Powerful storytelling, Ms. Markland! This was not your everyday, Scottish Romance.
Fans of Scottish Romance with a twist, the Highland Clearances, myths, and the magic of faith, are sure to enjoy “The Hiring Fair”. What a unique and mesmerizing tale! Strongly recommended!
Received for an honest review. However, all opinions, insights and thoughts are my own personal opinions.

Blurb For Miranda’s Dilemma

Erotic Historical Romance ~

Courtesan/Non-virginal Heroine

Poised to become Mayfair’s most

expensive and exclusive courtesan, Miss Miranda Jones finds her

rise inexplicably blocked by a socially

powerful nobleman. Scorned by her ducal father and determined to

attain everything that life has denied her due to an accident of birth,

she’s not about to let this arrogant earl stop her.

Adrian Sutherland, the Earl of Danvers,

saw his father destroyed by a heartless, predatory courtesan. He has no time or patience

for such exotic, expensive ladybirds. He’s far too busy

restoring his family’s wealth and reputation whilst doing what he can to

protect his friends from the clutches of all the scheming courtesans

of London.

Then a moment of compassion turns

intense dislike to breathless passion, and

these two strong-willed, fiercely proud

people are compelled to

indulge in a brief affair. Each is

convinced that they can satisfy

their craving for the other without

emotional risk.

But neither realizes that a little

dalliance can be a dangerous thing.

Reader Advisory: This is an erotic

historical romance and it

contains frank, frequent love scenes,

sexual slang and descriptions

and general bedchamber naughtiness. The

characters discuss abuse

issues from their backstories during

the course of their developing

relationship.

Blurb for A Most Demanding Mistress:

Miss Miranda Jones is indisputably the

most beautiful, elegant and sought after courtesan in all of London.

She hides a past full of pain and rejection beneath an exterior of

pride. She knows that noblemen put

their own fickle interests first

and cannot be trusted. Scorned by ducal

father, she never needed or

expected anything from a man, except

his financial support. Luxurious

living makes a soothing balm against

the sting of the ultimate rejection.

Now she’s madly in love with a

nobleman who cannot

afford to keep her in such extravagant

style. And she wonders if a

courtesan can ever afford to indulge

her own passions? Can she really

gamble so capriciously on her own

future and put the happiness of the

moment above future security? Will her

gentleman prove himself no

better than any other nobleman that she

has known?

Adrian Sutherland, the Earl of Danvers,

has seen the men of his family

destroyed through their obsessive need

to possess beautiful women.

He’d always thought himself immune to

such unworthy drives. Now he’s

fallen under the spell of Miss Miranda

Jones.

Miss Jones’ high standards and past

reputation foretells that she’ll be a most

demanding mistress. Despite his

relative lack of funds, Adrian is

determined to work hard to protect and

provide for her. Passion led

this skeptical gentleman to declare

himself in love. Yet as they

enter a protector and mistress

relationship, Adrian finds himself

consumed with possessiveness. And he

can’t help but wonder if is it

true love that motivates him? Or is it

the need to own her stunning

beauty? He must find the answer before

their tempestuous romance

breaks both of their hearts.

A Most Demanding Mistress is part of

the Fashionably Impure Series and is best read after Miranda’s

Dilemma.

Reader advisory: This story contains

frank sexual language and general bedchamber naughtiness. Abuse

issues are alluded to in the backstory.

BeautyAndTheEarl72lg

Beauty and the Earl
Book 3,The Pleasure Wars

Liam, the Earl of Windbury, had everything when he held his secret lover in his arms. Until a feud between their families left her dead, his body broken, and his sister married to his bitterest enemy.

Wracked with guilt, simmering with rage, he’s spent a year in seclusion, seeing no one except a few servants as he does his best to forget the past and patently refuses to think about any kind of future.

When courtesan Violet Milford enters Liam’s lair, she’s on a secret mission to gather information for Liam’s desperate sister, who fears for his sanity, even his life. What she finds is a man scarred inside and out, whose dark, controlling sensuality hides the kind, wounded man within.

Violet awakens a sexual desire more powerful than Liam has ever known, and her stories weave a spell that begins to work its way past his defenses. But when the truth inevitably comes out, it could well destroy the love that is saving them both.

*A personal note from AprilR*

The Pleasure Wars series is an enjoyable, awesome story of flawed pasts,guilt,grief, they are emotional, and showcase the power of love and family. A must read series for any serious Erotic Historical Romance readers and one I would highly recommend. So with this said if you have not read any of this author’s works or this series,  I would suggest you start with “Taken By the Duke” this is book one, then “Pleasuring the Lady” *Coming November 19,2013, which is book two, while these are all stand alones, it is the beginning of the journey.

Thank you for your time and please spread the word on the upcoming release of “Pleasuring the Lady” by Jess Michaels!!
