Delilah Devlin: A Month of Giveaways! Plus a Contest!

UPDATE: The winner of the contest is…Carin Walker! * * * * * I love the run-up to the holidays! Everyone’s so busy! For the first time ever, I have all my gifts purchased in advance. I have a few left to make (I dabble in jewelry!), but that’s part of the fun, too—trying to figure out what will please the women and girls in this family. But then I wondered what I might do for my online friends and…

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.

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: Sweet Silk by Megan Mitcham

Kroan, a warrior turned merchant ship owner and captain, is the first Viking I’ve ever written. Whew! I have to say, I’ve been missing out! Thick, bare chests strapped with leather and a battle axe. I mean, what have I been waiting for? Here’s a snippet from my contribution to Conquests, Sweet Silk. The Persian Empire, the North African coast, 820 AD **** “PARDON, MY LADY. I am in need of silk, and I’m told you have the finest in…

3 Days: Ásgeirr and the Tree of Life by Mina Murray

3 Days: Ásgeirr and the Tree of Life by Mina Murray

Only 3 days until the Vikings land – how exciting! I hope you’ve been enjoying our countdown, and the teasing little excerpts we’ve given you. I certainly have. Even if I’ve had to retreat to a cool, dark corner and fan myself to put out the flames… But on to business. Or perhaps I should say pleasure? Writing my story, “Ásgeirr and the Tree of Life”, was a pleasure from beginning to end. Most of my published stories are contemporaries,…

6 Days: Protecting Her by Regina Kammer

6 Days: Protecting Her by Regina Kammer

Vikings in Byzantium Let’s just get this out of the way, but the History Channel’s production of Vikings has given a sexy cachet to the fiercest warriors of the Middle Ages. When Delilah put out a call for stories in a Viking erotic romance anthology, my heart just went pitter-pat with excitement. And then the excitement sort of dissipated. My knowledge of Vikings is limited given their era is out of my purview. My field of study is Late Roman…

Note: Here’s another chance to win the Amazon gift card! Just be sure to comment! UPDATE: The winner of the card is Eniko! *~*~*~*~* I visited Ireland in 2012 and loved the many centuries of history you could see evident in the structures and ruins all over the island. The Vikings found their way to this island and staked a claim for a time, interbred with the inhabitants and became an integral part of the culture. Here’s an excerpt from…
