The Dangerous Desire series


Three passionate women.
Three men who may break or win their hearts.
Three love stories filled with danger and intrigue.

When bluestocking Maud dons disguise to infiltrate the chambers of London’s most decadent gentlemen’s club, is scandal inevitable? One thing is certain: falling in love with the Earl of Rancliffe can only bring disaster.

Arriving in Italy, Cecile is enchanted by the Castello di Scogliera and its glamorous inhabitants, but she soon finds their lavish welcome hides darker motives.
Living under the watchful eye of her cruel half-brother, Lucrezia dreams of escape. The arrival of young Cecile offers the chance she’s been waiting for—but the count’s game of cat and mouse places them both in peril.

On the first night of Cecile’s transatlantic crossing, a passenger is found dead. Joining forces with the handsome stranger in the cabin next door, can she protect those she loves? Or is the greatest danger yet to be revealed?

If you adore gothic tales filled with angst and passion, featuring revenge plots, ancient castles and secret passageways—as well as the hope of true love triumphing, you’ll devour the DANGEROUS DESIRE trilogy.

Escapology Reviews

‘This book was very much MY cup of tea. So hot it set the bathroom on fire and a Victorian fainting fit fire crew had to hose me down’ – Vikki Heaven


Voracious Reader Reviews

‘Have some type of cooling method handy when you sit down to read this. There’s just something so deliciously naughty about the steamier seedier side of things when everyone is supposed to be so stiff and proper. I simply love it. This is well-written, creative and hot. Enough said. Now, go. Run and get it, if you dare…’ – Carol



‘I felt like a voyeur in a room full of voyeurs and that isn’t easy to achieve! I don’t think that I have ever read a book quite as erotic as this one, but if she keeps writing this way, I will totally keep reading! Ms. de Maupassant! AMAZING – I love every second!!!’ – Ashley S

‘The writing is crisp and evocative, the plot anything but Victorian, with plenty of exceptionally well rendered scenes to titillate even the most jaded reader of erotica.’ – KT McColl


Amazon US

‘Erotica – and historical fiction – doesn’t get any better than this. If you haven’t read it, buy it.’ – Seattle Reader

‘A beautiful example of erotic literature – one that shows the genre to be capable of intelligence and elegance. Wonderful and truly impressive.’ – Malin James


Amazon UK

‘Every paragraph has you begging for the next. An exciting story of lust, passion and romance. If you buy one book this year, make it this one. I am in great anticipation of the follow up.’ – Pauline

‘I came across this author quite by accident. I am glad that I did! I particularly appreciated the theme of a liberated woman, throwing off the strictures of society (still resonates in this day and age)’ – Melanie


Amazon Canada

‘This book. This book! This is the book I wish I had written. The language…oh, the language! It grabs you and propels you smack dab into Victorian London from the first paragraph. It weaves a net about you, it draws you in. It has you shouting ‘yes, yes, yes,’ like Meg Ryan at the diner, because finally there is a well-rounded, well-written, exquisitely crafted story which redeems the genre.’ – Julia Rist
