Romancing the Throne, or, The History of a Parthian Love Story

Romancing the Throne, or, The History of a Parthian Love Story

Naughty Getaways: Eleven Sultry Stories is out! And it includes my ancient world romance, “An Unexpected Discovery” set in Parthia, the kingdom to the east of the Roman Empire. My heroine, Roedogune, is based on an actual historic figure, a Parthian princess who, along with the Parthian imperial throne, was captured by the Romans during their invasion of Ctesiphon, the capital of the Parthian Empire.

I tried to shake my brain into a plot twist that I hadn’t seen before. Since it was time for me to begin plotting for my next firehouse 17 story, I mulled on a possible scenario. Then out of the blue on my personal face book page I got a friend request. A total blast from the past. Fifteen years in the past to be exact. Thanks to this young man I briefly dated, I had the perfect conflict.  We…

New Release from Sabrina York: Lust Eternal

New Release from Sabrina York: Lust Eternal

For me, as I think has been the case with most authors, Fairy Tales form the base of our understanding of story. The elements of loss, struggle and redemption are recurring themes in nearly all our childhood tales. I’ve always been fascinated by the power of myth and, as a writer, playing with tropes. My latest release is a variation on the Magic Lamp trope, with our hero consigned to the lamp, saddled with the curse of eternal lust. The…

I don’t remember how old I was when I fell in love with my first Fireman. Maybe it was when I was five and my mom’s car was sideswiped by a semi sending us careening down an embankment. My mom had a broken arm, my older brother had a broken collar bone. What really made me fall in love with them was Quick Response. You see I have a racy heart, otherwise known as SVT. Two years ago I was…
