Blurb

Dead men don’t tell tales. They wail them from the top of the tallest tower.

Darke of Night, Book 2

Lady Guinevere (Guin) Harvey would much rather be writing gothic tales of intrigue and adventure than dancing attendance on her sister, the newly married Duchess of Silberwald. Until they arrive at Silberwald Castle, a place of enchanting perfection—and gothic shadows.

Ghostly groans and clanking chains lead Guin through ancient, misshapen passages to one of the castle’s many mysteries: a cell where the odd but charming Kasimir is kept chained like an animal. He could be a figment of her vivid dreams, the ghost of a dead, mad prince, or just a political prisoner no one wants to talk about.

Desperate to discover what beast is howling such soul-chilling cries, Guin summons the medium Barbara Darke. But by the time Barbara arrives, Guin can no longer distinguish dream from reality, friend from enemy. Even with all Barbara’s unique talents, they have to face new dangers before they finally discover the terrifying truth of Silberwald Castle.

 

Warning: Gives new meaning to falling madly in love…

About Marie Treanor

 

 

Marie Treanor lives in Scotland with her eccentric husband, three much-too-smart children and a small puppy who rules them all. Having grown bored with city life, she resides these days in a picturesque village by the sea where she is lucky enough to enjoy herself avoiding housework and writing sensual stories of paranormal romance and urban fantasy – with a bit of science fiction and time travel thrown in.

Marie is the award winning author of over forty sexy paranormal romances – Indie, New York and E-published. Since childhood, she has always written stories, at first secretly and for her own amusement, later with more serious intention to earn a living by writing. After working as a researcher and a librarian, she was lucky enough to have her first romances, GHOST UNLAID and QUEEN’S GAMBIT, immediately accepted by an e-publisher in 2004. Since then, she has published continuously, most notably with NAL, Samhain, Changeling Press, Ellora’s Cave and The Wild Rose Press. She now writes full time.

In 2010, she made her New York publishing debut with BLOOD ON SILK, first of the award winning Awakened by Blood vampire romance trilogy. Reviewers have described her undead anti-hero Saloman as the best vampire in the genre. Most recently, she has been trying her hand at self-publishing, with three new paranormal romance series, Serafina’s, The Gifted, and Blood Hunters (a sequel series to Awakened by Blood).

When not writing, Marie can generally be found among the chaos of her family, or walking the dog on the beach in all weathers. She loves to travel and meet new people. – See more at: http://www.marietreanor.com/about-the-author-marie-treanor/#sthash.ahFX5oNK.dpuf

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.

Every passion has its price . . .
Journalist Sophie Ryder has been following Emery Lockwood’s story since she was a little girl. There has always been something in his haunted eyes that she couldn’t resist and now, when she’s certain he holds the key to solving a string of kidnappings, she’ll do anything to speak to him. Even if it means venturing deep into the seductive world of the Gilded Cuff, a luxurious BDSM club on Long Island’s Gold Coast and Emery’s personal playground.
From the moment Sophie enters his shadowy, sensual domain, Emery Lockwood knows this tantalizing new little sub was meant to belong to him. However, Sophie wants more from Emery than just pleasure . . . she wants his past. And that is something he isn’t willing to give-no matter who is asking. But every moment he spends with Sophie, Emery feels his control slipping and he knows it’s only a matter of time before he surrenders to her heart, body, and soul

“The Gilded Cuff was a dramatic, sexy, and suspenseful romance between two people drowning in survivor’s guilt. Lauren Smith crafted an intriguing plot with strong secondary characters. Ms. Smith also created strong women who were brave and courageous; they were unwilling to sit on the sidelines while the men confronted the danger. Fans of Lisa Renee Jones would enjoy the sexy mystery with BDSM relationships.” — Harlequin Junkie

MY THOUGHTS!
#1 in the new Contemporary Romance series,”Surrender”, about two kidnapped twins boys, their lives afterwards,the reasons why they were kidnapped and tortured and by whom. This is a two part story, so readers are left with some unanswered questions, but it is not a cliffhanger, per say. This is Emery and Sophia’s story.

Enthralling, suspenseful, very sexual, with some light BDSM and a very challenging story! Well written, unique in its content, with steamy sexual encounters and engaging characters. The plot is unique in it’s content, the kidnapping of twins, and the events that help shape their lives, each believing the other is dead. The “Gilded Cuff” is more than an Erotica Romance, it’s the story of child abduction, it’s after effects and finding their HEA. More than romance, sex, and dominance, it’s about finding peace, healing, and forgiveness. Readers of Erotica Romance and Romance in general, are sure to enjoy this one, as well as readers of Mystery and Suspense.

I can’t wait for the next installment, to learn more about Finn’s story. Strongly recommend!
