Perilous Pleasures

A Mysterious Lord under A Vow of Chastity...A Virgin Who Must Seduce Him to Save Her Life

Lord Ramsay has waited years to exact his vengeance on the scheming courtesan who sent his sister to the guillotine. Now the courtesan's grown daughter is completely under his control. Her virginity is essential for the ancient rite that will give him the mystical powers he's worked to master since his sister's death. But Ramsay isn't prepared for the vulnerable, courageous woman he finds--a woman with powers of her own.

Zoe has only one weapon against the fate that awaits her...seduction. Only that will rid her of the virginity Ramsay so prizes.

Yet even as Zoe uses her charms to bewitch her abductor, Ramsay's haunted, Pisces soul weaves a sensual spell around her too. Soon, the two will be bound together by a passion as bright as the stars--and locked in a desperate struggle against an ancient sorcery that can only be vanquished by love.


Perilous Pleasures is the Pisces book in my Lords of the Seventh House series. It's not linked to the first two stories but stands alone. There's less overt astrology in this story than in the first two, but you'll find the Pisces archetype pervading it with a fine mix of mysticism, magic, false beliefs, self-sacrifice, deception, and transforming love.


"I highly recommend PERILOUS PLEASURES to readers looking for a terrific read. Do not miss it! ... Filled with mysticism, compassion, false beliefs, deception, believable characters, passion and romance, this story is one you will hate to put down. In fact, I read it in one sitting." --Romance Junkies

Star Crossed Seduction

the second book in the series starting with Lord Lighting is the Scorpio book, so as you'd expect, the story turns on issues of sexual power, loyalty, betrayal, toxic secrets, and wrenching emotional transformation. Here's a brief description:

Lovers or Enemies?

Captain Miles Trevelyan, on leave from active service in India, is heading out for a night on the town when he rescues a beautiful pickpocket from arrest. She's the perfect choice for a few days of dalliance--beautiful, cunning, and completely disposable.

But Temperance has no intention of becoming the plaything of a man who wears the uniform of the solders who murdered her lover. Disarming Trev with a kiss, she escapes. But her sultry kiss opens the two Scorpio adversaries to an obsessive attraction that neither can elude--or possibly survive.
