One Kiss From A Stranger Loving My Lady

 

One Kiss From A Stranger is my debut novel. It is a contemporary romantic novel with a traditional hero and heroine for whom true love certainly does not run smooth.

Synopsis

Sylvia Rose isn't interested in romance. Between advancing her career and looking after her chronically ill sister, she doesn't have time. And one kiss from a handsome stranger isn't going to change her mind.

But when the stranger turns out to be her new boss, Campion Benoni, Sylvia finds it hard to ignore her growing attraction to him. Beset by family problems and finding herself mixed up in the relationship difficulties of Campion's brother, Isaac, Sylvia struggles to keep her cool. Has romance found her after all? Or will she have to watch as her life disintegrates around her?

Loving My Lady is a very different type of story to One Kiss. A Regency Period lesbian novella, it is the first person narrative of Cordelia Brownlow.

Synopsis

When her father dies, Cordelia Brownlow's future looks bleak. She has no money and must sell Ashworth, the family house, in order to pay the debts of honor that her father ran up. The offer her cousin, Lady Dennyson, makes to buy Ashworth and keep Cordelia on as a companion seems like the answer to her prayers. But Lady Juliet Dennyson has an unusual idea of the duties (and pleasures) of a 'companion', and Cordelia finds herself falling in love with the lady who shows her delights of the body she's never imagined.

Lady Juliet has secrets in her past and they threaten to spill over into the present, destroying her relationship with Cordelia. Can Lady Juliet learn to live with her past – and can Cordelia accept it, too?

Too Good To Be True is a contemporary heterosexual erotic romance novella with a very unromantic heroine called Mandy. I rather love Mandy.

Synopsis

Mandy thinks her love life, not to mention her sex life, is over for good when her husband leaves her—for an older woman. A chance encounter with a gorgeous man begins to change her mind. Scarcely daring to believe her luck when Jon asks her to meet him again, she agrees. One dizzyingly fantastic night of lust later, Mandy is in heaven.

But Jon has a secret. Has Mandy moved from a cheating husband to a man with an even more sinister past? Will she get the chance to explore the range of sexual possibilities Jon is introducing her to, or is her new life too good to be true?
