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…

9 Days: The Captive by Lizzie Ashworth

9 Days: The Captive by Lizzie Ashworth

Invasion! Ah, Britannia, that rugged foggy isle. By the time of the Viking invasions in the ninth century, the people of these lands had become a mix of the natives (before 200 BC) and incessant waves of conquerers (Celts, Romans, Angles, Saxons). Absorbing newcomers and forging a new nation were a familiar process when Scandanavian adventurers set foot on her shores. Similar in so many ways to the earlier Northern European tribes that had made this island their home, the…

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…

10 Days: Pleasure in Surrender by Delilah Devlin (Contest)

“Pleasure in Surrender” isn’t my first foray into a story with a historical setting. But it is the first “pure” historical I’ve written. In Jacq’s Warlord, my sister Myla Jackson and I wrote about a woman who time-traveled back to medieval England. Rufus, our hero, was very much a man of his time. Dealing with Jacq called for a little license—we couldn’t allow poor Rufus to beat her for her many infractions. And she did need to lead a castle defense…
