Totally not paranormal, but I had to give a shout out today to my sister, who writes spicy historical romances as Alyson Chase. Her first historical romantic suspense tale in the new "Lords of Discipline" series is out today.
Here's the Amazon blurb:
"This unconventional, sexy tale—featuring a dominant duke with a fondness for rulers—brims with sensuality on every page. If you like a heavy dose of spice in your Regency romance, you'll love DISCIPLINED BY THE DUKE." - Joanna Shupe
The day her sister murdered their abusive father, Elizabeth Wilcox stopped being a gentleman’s daughter. Willing to do anything to save her sister from the hangman’s noose, now she is a spy... A servant. A liar. A thief. A submissive.
Masquerading as a parlor maid and entrenched in the Duke of Montague’s estate, Liz is willing to risk all to uncover the secrets that would save her sister. But submitting to the duke’s peculiar brand of discipline surprises her with a heady mixture of pleasure and pain. Eager to relinquish control of her messy life, Liz soon craves the rough hands of Montague and his powerful, passionate attentions. Can she succumb to the hot sting of his hand and the gentleness of his kisses without revealing her true identity and darkest secrets? And what punishment will she face when he realizes her betrayal?
Just to be clear, this is not erotica. But like I said: spicy. There are some bad words and sex scenes. I.e., it's not what I write. But if you enjoy historical romantic suspense, check it out! She also writes less (ahem) naughty, contemporary, small town romance as Allyson Charles.
