My Dear Lord Forrester

Hi all. I'm calling it a release day for My Dear Lord Forrester even though this novella was in the Seven Nights of Sin anthology. We just wrapped the anthology up a couple months ago and it took me a little time to get the cover done and to do another round of edits. Always edits. No matter how many eyes look at it, there is something that can be made better.

So here's the new cover.

Some of you may have seen my FB post about my "smiling" hero. I liked it but he just seemed too happy. So went with another model instead, though I must confess, he's still not quite right. The curse of getting to do you own covers, I guess.

A big shout to Dar Albert who puts up with me changing my mind from day to day!

Here's a blurb:

Joshua Forrester is a man of the world, returning to London after receiving a wound in a Parisian duel. He's done it again - out to save all womankind. When will he learn not all women want to be saved? In London, he is reacquainted with a family friend and now widow, Char Dunlevee. He is charmed - and appalled. He knows her secret and is furious his friend, Char’s now dead husband, could have left her in such circumstances. He can save her, if she will only say yes to his proposal.

Char has other plans. Joshua would make a perfect husband—for one of her sisters. She doesn’t need to be saved. Seduced perhaps…? With one kiss, Char forgets her plans as she is drawn closer to the enigmatic and dear Lord Forrester.

Previously published in the Seven Nights of Sin anthology.

A new logo

Someday I'll have a marketing/PR person to help me with the minutia of writing. So much to do, so little time.

But this week, Dar Albert (my cover designer) finished up a new logo for "Eliza Lloyd" - and I really like it. You might be seeing it around from here out. What do you think?

Selling Direct TO YOU!

Hi everybody! I want to tell you about my new venture - selling direct to you!

Publishing has changed so much in the past five years, including the closure of my own publisher.

What's a girl to do? Being self-published has its advantages but it is scary to be out on my own. I want to try to stabilize my income stream as I move closer to writing full time. That won't happen if publishers keep dropping like flies. But don't worry, you'll still be able to get my books at all the usual channels.

So have a look at the upper right side of this blog. You'll see the books I have listed for sale - more will be added in a few weeks. Hope you'll consider buying a few books "direct."

Here are the two books you can get, as of today.

More Wicked Affairs

Merry Christmas, readers.

And here is a little present to finish the year. It is Book Seven in the Wicked Affairs series, which will be released sometime next year - around May or June, at this time. I'm actually planning to release two stories in this series: Wicked Scandal, which is the excerpt below. And Wicked Shades (Clarissa and Juliana's sister Audrina's story - you know, the one with the hot French husband.)

So here, we are at the Duchess of Pelham's grand ball at Grosvenor Square. You'll recognize some of the previous Wicked Affairs nobles who "hang" with the Wicked Affairs crowd.

"They say bad things happened in threes and London was rife with talk of the newest bad things to have happened.

The most tragic, of course, had been the shocking death of Louis Ederline, the old and perverted marquess, who owned more primitive erotic art than ought to have ever been made in the first place. He left behind an innocent young wife some speculated had never been deflowered by her ancient husband or at least deflowered in the traditional sense.

The second bad thing had befallen the favorite horse, Maid of Cadiz, in a race at Newmarket. Not only had the thoroughbred lost, she had lost spectacularly. And to an upstart at that. The winning horse was owned by the Earl of Archer, Charles Standifer, running a horse he had owned less than six months and with eighteen to one odds. His wife, Alizabet, had thrown herself into her husband’s arms after, to the shock of all.

The third bad thing was bound to happen sooner or later. Lady Lindley bore her bad luck stoically. Her long-time lover, Trenton James, the current Earl of Dahlingford, had ended their one-year arrangement amid rampant speculation and accusations. For over a week, the Tattler had been full of on dits regarding lying, cheating and certain other insinuations one could hardly countenance.
Unless one lived in London during the Season. Then anything was possible.

Rather than believe her grand fete would be ruined by death, debt and debaucheries, the Duchess of Pelham thought it might be a rather spectacular evening.

She saw her husband Randall VanLandingham across the room and shot him
her best smile. As he always did, he smiled back, one brow cocked and one hand braced against his hip. Other things happened in threes also."

KOBO Queen For A Day!

One of the best things about writing is making a "list." Granted there are a lot of lists, but this one below is a little bit extra-special for me. It's over at KOBO. Since last night, All A Mistress Wants is at number 1 in the Historical Erotica category. This morning, The Darkness in the Marquess of Dane joined it at number 2!

Think of it, #1 and #2 in the same category.

So I'm putting on my own crown today. Seriously though, thank you readers for enjoying my books and parting with some hard-earned cash to buy them!

PS My bud, Monica Burns, was tied with me at number two!!

The Darkness in the Marquess of Dane

"One of best erotic romances I read this year! FAB. RUN TO BUY this DARK MARQUESS Totally 5 star+" Cerise DeLand

Some novels just deserve a new and updated cover. Here it is. Dar Albert always dazzles with cover art goodness.

Lucian Conover, the Marquess of Dane, hides a secret darkness.

For him, no offer is too low or depraved, but when the offer comes from one of the ton’s noble daughters, Miss Christina Turnbow, Dane is willing to entertain the iniquitous possibilities. Dane is not impressed by the pretenses of silly ton debs, but Christina has a ghost of a chance. She bears an uncanny resemblance to his dead wife.

Christina, already ruined by a slight scandal, and with her family on the brink of financial disaster, determines that she has one thing left to sell. And Dane is the only man who can afford her price.

Dane is lost in the darkness and only Christina brings him light. She must balance the needs of her family with the strange needs of the only man who can help her. Can she endure Dane's dark world? Can she do what no other woman has done? Love him.
