Now over to you, Raven.
Cecilia's Claim is book two in the Regency Series Behind closed Doors, that I'm writing with Lee Brazil.
It's great fun, as I get to know and understand my characters and his. Although each book is a stand alone, you do get to know a bit about all the other characters in the series…
Everyone agreed the Brigstock family was unconventional. Just how unconventional could be somewhat of a shock...
She may have turned her men down once, but will she have the resolve to do it again?
Cecy's willpower is never strong when she's around Caleb or Philippe, and now she needs them to keep her safe. They intend to stick close to her, so surely a little dalliance is acceptable? The problem is a little is not enough for any of them, but can they all agree just on what form the 'more' should take?
Well as you can imagine, Cecy is no meek and mild milksop heroine. I can't write those sort of characters to save myself. No, she is a strong-willed and determined young lady, who takes one step too far for her elder brothers ideas of what is acceptable. Little does he know what she's getting up to…
As she went limp, Philippe lifted her effortlessly into his arms and strode away from the foreshore, up the hill toward the manor. Stupid woman, how was he going to explain her abduction to her, let alone to Caleb? Philosophical as ever, he decided he'd worry about that when the time came. There were more pressing things to mull over.
Her breast rose and fell with an evenness that in other circumstances he would have marveled at. It was a surety the lady did not often have such a level demeanor. With a ruthlessness that surprised him, he compelled his cock to remain quiescent, as it threatened to rise to the proximity of her body crushed against his. Now was not the time, even though he itched to touch her breasts.
Then, he decided he would nip the nubs until they stood out proud and hard. Run his hand over her quim, tease her entrance and listen to the soft mewls and cries she would no doubt make. Sadly, there were other, more important things at hand.
She's not going to be the happiest of ladies when she finds out what is going on. If you want to find out, you'll need to read the book. However, I'll give one person who comments before midnight Friday UK time an eBook from my back list, just to let you see the sort of things I write…
Raven lives in Scotland, along with her husband and their two cats—their children having flown the nest—surrounded by beautiful scenery, which inspires a lot of the settings in her books.
She is used to sharing her life with the occasional deer, red squirrel, and lost tourist, to say nothing of the scourge of Scotland—the midge.
A lover of reading, she appreciates the history inside a book, and the chance to peek into the lives of those from years ago. Raven admits that she enjoys the research for her books almost as much as the writing; so much so, that sometimes she realizes she's strayed way past the information she needs to know, and not a paragraph has been added to her WIP.
Her lovely long-suffering husband is learning to love the dust bunnies, work the Aga, and be on stand-by with a glass of wine.
