Lizzie Ashworth: The Origins of Valentine’s Day

Bet you didn’t know that Valentine’s Day got its start in the Roman Empire with some public BDSM. That’s right. The feast of Lupercalia involved women lining up along the streets so men could run along and whip them with strips of animal hide (preferably goat or dog).

Cashmere S. Jackson: Growing is Hard (And Not Necessarily the Fun Way)

First, thank you Delilah and Delilah readers for receiving me on this blog. I am not one to make resolutions.  Like so many, in the past, I firmly declared my goals in the first month of the year and promptly forgot them by the third month.  But this year a Facebook friend posed the question: How will you grow this year?  This question goes beyond resolutions, although I realize that part of the reasons people make resolutions is to inspire…

Holidays!

Holiday Stress? It hits most of us every year about this time and only gets worse as the calendar races toward a new year. Here’s a little travel romance to distract you from all those seasonal obligations—you know, family, cooking, gifts. This is a teaser excerpt.

Today especially…

Imperial Warriors: Two Scorching Tales of the Roman Empire is out! This mini-anthology includes my stories previously published in Delilah’s collections now available together for the first time. “The Promise of Memory” was published in Hot Highlanders and Wild Warriors, and “Protecting Her” was published in Conquests: An Anthology of Smoldering Viking Romance. It’s my very first anthology of my own stories, which means it’s really a “collection of short stories” rather than an anthology (which implies several authors). But…
