Imperial Warriors: Roman and Viking New Release 99¢ Sale!

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…

1 Day: Poetry and Amber by Axa Lee

1 Day: Poetry and Amber by Axa Lee

The Love of a Viking I’m a longtime history geek. I was homeschooled in high school and after my main work was finished I spent a lot of time reading classic novels like the unabridged Count of Monte Cristo, Jane Austen, and the works of Bronte sisters or researching and writing extra papers on historical figures and times; Queen Elizabeth I, Eleanor of Aquitaine, Sargon of Akkad (in tribute to The Scorpion King film), and the role of Viking women…

2 Days: My Loveliest Vision by Renee Luke

2 Days: My Loveliest Vision by Renee Luke

What woman doesn’t long for her knight to come sweep her off her feet, to rescue her, to claim her? What woman doesn’t want to be taken into the strong arms of a man with honor, strong enough to kill, but tender enough to cherish and adore? I know, I have a yearned for my knight to come since I was a little girl after reading fairytales. Although I write mostly contemporary stories and novels now, my first love is historicals, specifically,…

3 Days: The Bodyguard by Jacqueline Brocker

3 Days: The Bodyguard by Jacqueline Brocker

Picking a time and sticking with it One word in the submission call caught my eye: samurai. Now, I thought, that could be interesting. I’d majored in both Japanese and History (a common theme it seems for several of us in the anthology) at university, though I barely speak Japanese now, so the combination of two old loves was very appealing. But when to set the story? Japanese history is vast and varied, and the idea of what a samurai…

4 days: The Keeper of the Keys by Axa Lee

4 days: The Keeper of the Keys by Axa Lee

 Iron Age Kink “Keeper of the Keys” was inspired by wondering what kind of kink would have been likely in Briton England. Forget butt plugs and handcuffs, what I thought about was how a woman with that much responsibility would experience sex and desire. She feels she carries the weight of the world on her shoulders, or on her belt in this case, and I imagine the need to be relieved of that would be enormous. Isn’t some kind of relief…

5 Days: A Falcon In Flight by Connie Wilkins (Prize)

5 Days: A Falcon In Flight by Connie Wilkins (Prize)

The Warrior from the East My alter-ego, who’s been commandeering most of my writing time for the last fifteen years or so, is more accustomed to portraying warrior women than the traditional men of history and legend. But I’ve always loved reading historical fiction—Roberta Gellis’s well-researched Middle Ages romances especially—and have written several short stories in historical settings myself, without neglecting the appeal of strong, sexy men. As a sample, my prize for anyone who comments here and requests it—yes,…

6 Days: Broken Vows by Anya Richards

6 Days: Broken Vows by Anya Richards

Why are we so often impulsive, especially when we’re young? This is the question the hero of Broken Vows is forced to ask himself when the effects of his chivalrous actions are suddenly too hard to swallow. Like many young men, Gareth was let down by the lady who had won his heart and, at that time, he swore never to love again. Unfortunately, he took his vow too far, actually invoking the name of God. Now, older, wiser, and…

7 Days: The Squire by Cela Winter

7 Days: The Squire by Cela Winter

The Story I Almost Didn’t Write Honestly, I never thought I would write a work of historical erotic fiction. Not because I don’t like history, I love it. Certainly not because I have any illusions that people in Olden Times were in any way different when it comes to matters of the flesh than we are today—Victoria’s repressive reign was a 60 year blip in the otherwise openly lusty course of human nature. Reading historical romance, among many other genres,…

8 Days: Wicked by Susannah Chapin

8 Days: Wicked by Susannah Chapin

I GET KNOCKED DOWN…BUT I GET UP AGAIN Semi-obnoxious 90’s song stuck in your head? You can thank me later. 😉 So, about a year ago, life knocked me down pretty hard. (Okay, let’s do a synchronized “Awww.” It’ll be the “Awww” of communal misery. Ready? One, two, three…”Awww.” Excellent, thanks y’all. Now we can move on.) There was some serious personal stuff going down that wasn’t pretty or fun, and most days it was an accomplishment just to get…
