Victorian Romance Boxset from Shayla Black. Strictly Seduction and Strictly Forbidden together in one bundle. Start your historical romance adventure today!

Strictly Seduction: It can’t be love if it’s Strictly Seduction…

As an innocent girl, Madeline Sedgewick learned that nothing comes without a price—even desire. Five years later, now widowed and deeply in debt, she’s certain that the stranger who bought her last husband’s notes of credit will demand swift, steep repayment. But she never imagines her creditor will be Brock Taylor, her baseborn former stable-hand turned newly wealthy entrepreneur—the man who stole her virginity and her heart. She’s even more stunned when he says that he’ll forgive her debts only if she becomes his wife.

Brock’s memories of their parting are no less bitter than Maddie’s, and his plans for their future are hardly a rekindling of their blissful first love. But seeing Maddie again—just as spirited, strong, and beautiful as ever—reawakens a desire he thought long dead. When she refuses his proposal, they strike a dangerous wager, with Brock’s self-made fortune and Maddie’s treasured independence at stake. It’s a wager only one of them can win—as long as they resist the other’s passionate seduction…and falling in love again.

Strictly Forbidden: A passion this tempting must be Strictly Forbidden…

Miss Kira Melbourne is anything but a proper English rose. Her exotic beauty, courtesy of her foreign mother, has marked her as an outsider, and her ghastly reputation as a woman of loose virtue has only added to that status. The victim of a devious viscount’s horrible lies, Kira has the chance to redeem herself and become a member of polite society as the fiancée of a respected country clergyman. She’ll finally have a place to belong…even if it’s in the tepid arms of a man she doesn’t love.

Gavin Daggett, Duke of Cropthorne, isn’t about to let his naive country cousin marry a scandalous woman like Kira Melbourne. The solution is a simple one: Gavin will seduce the vixen and prove her unworthiness, thereby releasing his cousin from any obligation. But spending time with Kira is like awakening to a world of color and beauty, and it stirs the fiery desires Gavin has fought to suppress his entire life. Caught in his own dangerous game, sharing forbidden pleasure with Kira, Gavin knows that the price of loving her is high—and yet it is one that he will willingly pay…with every beat of his heart.

Title: Lock
Author: Kimberly Knight
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Fairytale
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR
Blurb:
Before Zell was born, her fate was sealed.
Held captive in a high-rise overlooking New York City since the age of twelve, she had no friends her own age, no life outside of the penthouse, and absolutely no choices of her own. But what she didn’t realize was the tower where she lost her freedom would one day become her salvation. Her prince would arrive, they would fall in love, and they would come up with a plan for her to escape so they could live happily ever after.
If only it were that easy.
Every girl dreams of her life becoming a fairy tale, even Zell, who’s knowledge of romance was simply from the books she stole from other girls at the brothel.
In a world where sex, drugs, and manipulation is solely the life she knows, the only fairy tale poor Zell would endure would be a sinister one …
Because freedom always comes at a price.

Outback Treasure I

A city boy in Australia’s outback? He won’t even last two weeks.

Pete is geeky-cute and sweet. He’s also way too young for me. But he’s so much like me too. He loves this desolate land, and he fits right in with station life. My family. Me.

There are a million reasons why we shouldn’t be together. But I keep forgetting them when he’s near.

If only he’d told me why he was really here…

Outback Treasure I is the first part of the Pearce Station duet. Pete and Scottie’s story concludes in Outback Treasure II.

Outback Treasure II

A city boy in Australia’s outback. Who would have thought I’d last longer than two weeks?

My station owner may be older but he’s as beautiful and rugged as the red dirt that flows through his veins. Scottie deserves better than me too. I lied to him. But he encourages me. He helps me follow my dreams.

Scottie has warned me a thousand times though. It’s not easy. The desert is as unforgiving as the people. We’ve each got a fight on our hands. For our happiness. For our survival.

Outback Treasure II is the conclusion of Pete and Scottie’s story.

“If you wanna ask me something, just ask it,” Scott spoke quietly after a time.

“Does it get lonely out here?” It wasn’t what I wanted to ask, but it was as close as I dared come to the question I really wanted to know the answer to.

“Yes and no. We’re only a few hours out of Longreach, so it’s easy enough to go there. Everyone else usually does.”

“But not you,” I finished.

“Nah, I stay here and look after the animals when they all head off.”

“You can’t go to town on one of the weekends your station hands stay here?”

He shook his head. “Not really much point. I don’t really drink.” He shrugged. “And I don’t do church either so….”

I sat quietly for a moment, contemplating what he said. “How old are you?”

“Forty. You?”

“Twenty-five.” When he flicked his gaze to mine, shock lit his features. “I look younger, I know. It’s the freckles.” He nodded and I hedged another question. “You don’t wanna hook up with anyone in town? Find a nice lady to spend the night with? This station’s a long way from company. Don’t you crave sex?”

He looked hard at me, unflinching. As if he was analyzing what I was asking. Searching for a deeper meaning. I was, and yet I wasn’t. Granted, he was a few years older than me, but he was still a man. He still had urges. Needs. He ran the station and had the respect of his family. I hadn’t seen him with his stockmen and women, but I had a feeling they’d respect him all the same. And yet he lived in a bubble. Seemed to isolate himself.

“I go to Brisbane and Sydney for a week every year. It’s enough.”

“Fuck me, you’re a better man than me. I’d go stir crazy.”

“Yeah well, just shows how different we are.”

There was a bite to his tone, which I hadn’t meant to put there. “I didn’t mean to offend you.”

His voice was quiet, but there was steel behind it. That same charisma turned into passion and fire. “We don’t all have the luxury of being able to walk into a bar somewhere and fuck the first person to catch your eye. Longreach is a small town. Everyone knows everyone. I can’t just go round and hook-up with whoever I like. It’d have consequences. For my family. For this station. And I won’t risk either one of them just to get my rocks off.” His eyes flashed angrily and his nostrils flared as he breathed hard.

“I’m sorry, I didn’t know.”

He sighed. “Don’t apologize. I just can’t. Ma and Nan, even Ally are always at me to go out and meet some girl I can bring home. But that’s not me. Longreach is in the middle of bloody nowhere, but we’re even more remote. This desert… it’s in me. It’s part of my soul. I reckon if you cut me, I’d bleed red dirt. But it’s a hard life. One that most people won’t even consider.” He poked at the fire again. With his head down and his shoulders sagging, he spoke again, his voice barely above a whisper, “It’s easier not to try. No disappointment….” His words trailed off like he’d expended all the energy he had.

“You have your family and your workers. At least you’re not alone.” I snapped the twig I’d used to toast marshmallows on and tossed it into the dying embers of the fire that were being kept alive by Scott’s prodding. “Apart from hook-ups, and a flatmate I saw every few days, I didn’t really have anyone. And we all know how deep and meaningful hook-ups are.”

“No parents? Siblings?”

“An older sister, but apparently I embarrass her, so I tend to just keep away. Mum and Dad don’t understand. They mean well, but they keep trying to change me into something I’m not. And it’s hard to make friends in the city when you don’t get out much other than to get off.”

“Tough gig, huh?” he mused. “Suppose you don’t need to be in the desert to be isolated.”

“That’s the funny thing with a city. You can be alone and lonely even in the biggest crowd.” I gave him a small smile, trying to shake off the downer I’d plunged us into. I stood up then and stretched my arms above my head before a yawn ripped free. “Come on, walk me to my room so I don’t break a leg or stand on a snake. Get eaten by a dingo. Whatever.”

“Dingoes don’t usually bother us, especially not near the homestead. We don’t bait them ’cause they naturally keep the roo population from exploding, but we’ve got to protect the calves from them. We run Charbray cattle here—a Charolais Brahman cross—so they’re too big for the dingoes to attack when they’re fully grown. But, yeah….”

“I’m smaller than a cow. Seriously, are they gonna eat me?” My alarm was clear.

Scott laughed and my breath caught in my throat. His entire face transformed. Years fell away and a smile worthy of a Hollywood actor spread across his features. “You’ll be right, mate.” He clapped me on the shoulder, and I swallowed. “Come on, City. Let’s get you tucked into bed. We get up early here.”

I ignored the jibe, still speechless from seeing his smile, and followed him into the darkness. It took a moment for my eyes to adjust, but when they did, I saw the silhouette of the guesthouse against the starry sky. The building wasn’t what captured my attention though. It was the stars. An immense sky touched the horizon all around us. Bright pinpricks of light pierced the darkness and the half-moon hovering there seemed like I could reach out and touch it. The flat land extended for hundreds of kilometres in every direction. Dark and quiet, it was a complete contrast with the fireworks show in the sky. I didn’t realize I’d stopped walking until Scott stepped up beside me, our shoulders nearly touching, and looked up too. “Nothing like the sky out here.”

“It’s beautiful,” I breathed, looking at him with wonder in my eyes. When he turned to me, I couldn’t help adding, “But everything out here is.”

About Ann Grech

By day Ann Grech lives in the corporate world and can be found sitting behind a desk typing away at reports and papers or lecturing to a room full of students. She graduated with a PhD in 2016 and is now an over-qualified nerd. Glasses, briefcase, high heels and a pencil skirt, she’s got the librarian look nailed too. If only they knew! She swears like a sailor, so that’s got to be a hint. The other one was “the look” from her tattoo artist when she told him that she wanted her kids’ initials “B” and “J” tattooed on her foot. It took a second to register that it might be a bad idea.

She’s never entirely fit in and loves escaping into a book—whether it’s reading or writing one. But she’s found her tribe now and loves her MM book world family. She dislikes cooking, but loves eating, can’t figure out technology, but is addicted to it, and her guilty pleasure is Byron Bay Cookies. Oh and shoes. And lingerie. And maybe handbags too. Well, if we’re being honest, we’d probably have to add her library too given the state of her credit card every month (what can she say, she’s a bookworm at heart)!

She also publishes her raunchier short stories under her pen name, Olive Hiscock.

Ann loves chatting to people online, so if you’d like to keep up with what she’s got going on:

BLURB:

Four stories of solving a mystery and finding love along the way.

Sam’s Will
After Jana Walker’s daughter declares she doesn’t want to show horses any longer, a summer in Black Mountain, Colorado, suddenly seems like an appealing alternative. Readying the house her grandmother left her to sell will be a welcome distraction. What she isn’t counting on is a handsome stranger swearing Grammy left him part of her property.

Sam Kane had an agreement with Jane Price: fix up her ranch and keep the barn he renovated into a home, plus the ten acres around it. When her granddaughter shows up threatening to evict him, he must find the missing will Jane wrote to keep his home.

Larkspur
Shocked to learn she was switched at birth, Maya Farris travels to Black Mountain, Colorado, to see what she can learn about the events surrounding her birth. What surprises her most is her unexpected feelings for the man who was married to the woman swapped with Maya.

Hayden Rafferty can hardly believe his late wife was exchanged at birth. He becomes a reluctant believer when the woman who claims she was traded shows him compelling evidence. What he can’t believe is how fast he falls for her.

Riding Into Love
As an up-and-coming rider in the world of endurance riding, Taryn Thompson hopes the 100-mile San Juan Supreme will be hers to win. When her friend and mentor goes missing during the race, Taryn learns not all people are who they seem.

When ex-endurance rider Colby Farley’s sister vanishes, he must push aside his apprehensions to ride to her rescue. What he doesn’t expect is to fall for a woman who makes him face and conquer his deepest fear.

The Cowboy’s Story
Autumn Shaw will do anything to get the big scoop on convicted murder Shooter Crawford. She jumps at the chance to get the exclusive directly from the cowboy’s mouth. Instantly attracted to the bull rider, can she resist his charms long enough to learn the truth?

Shooter Crawford has always been a bad boy. Reckless and wild, his reputation helped send him to prison for murder. Can he trust a reporter to clear his name, or is she only interested in the story and not the man?

Ravage

As president of the Untamed Sons MC, I’m no stranger to pain, but three years ago Sasha broke my heart and put another black mark against my soul. Even the mention of her name is enough to bring my demons out to play. I still don’t know what happened, but what I do know is she walked out on me, the club, and the future we were working towards without a backwards glance. I should have known she wouldn’t stay gone.

Sasha

Leaving Rav was the hardest decision I’ve ever had to make, but I didn’t have a choice. Staying and facing my past wasn’t an option. I suffered through hell, but I’m stronger than I’ve ever been, at least I was until my daughter got sick. Now, the only person left who might be able to save her is her father.
Only, I have no idea who it is. Ravage, or his brother, Sin.

Blurb:

“Don’t challenge the devil, sweetheart, if you can’t handle
hell.”

The plan was simple: Find a wife. Get married. Produce an heir.

Simple, yes. That doesn’t mean Brian has to like it. He reluctantly
agrees to his sister’s drastic measure of placing a ‘wife-for-hire’ ad.

What he doesn’t expect to find is a smart-mouthed, infuriating woman who
makes him think of sixty-nine other things he wants to do with her and marrying
her isn’t one of them.

Eshana is far from Brian’s idea of a perfect wife, and their five-minute
interview ends with ‘arrogant ass’ right before she storms out of his
boardroom.

But the universe isn’t quite done with them yet. Their paths cross,
sinfully so and with each meet, the sexual tension burns hotter than a volcano
about to erupt.

Only, Brian’s resolve to get the feisty beauty into his bed, hits a
curveball when Eshana’s enticing pencil skirt and high heels now comes with the
title: Your newly hired assistant.

How much temptation can a man endure before he’s allowed to take his
employee across her desk?

Wholly MatrimonyFor Richer or Poorer

Born and raised
in the coastal city of Durban, South Africa, she now lives in the City of Gold,
Johannesburg. Charlene’s days are an energetic mixture of a full time job, a
wife and mom to two beautiful kids, three dogs and three cats. She holds a law
degree and is a passionate events manager.

Charlene enjoys
travelling, a Mediterranean cruise being her most recent venture. She hopes to
retire to a beautiful seaside cottage where she can spend lazy days on the
beach drinking cocktails and focus all her energy on writing. She is of the
firm opinion that one should not give up on a dream but rather make every
attempt to get there no matter how long it takes.

Her love for
writing stemmed from an avid interest in English at School, more so Literature
and enjoyed writing short stories. She attempted her first full length novel
fifteen years ago and although she loved the finish product decided she’d write
mainly as a hobby and only recently sought publishing.

Believing
writing is the wings to holistic escapism, she makes the time in her busy
schedule giving life to her dreams of bringing together passion filled heroes
and heroines in a happily ever after.

*** 3RD ANNIVERSARY EDITION ***
Dimitri—
I admit it. I’m a manwhore…and proud of it.
But I’m not a total asshole. The women always know where they stand. They’re a booty call—nothing more. Everything out in the open. That’s my way.
Except have a secret, one that could ruin my career. A man who writes romance novels has to be perfect, like the men in the books. It’s what fans expect.
…and I’m not.
It could all come out at Southern Book Bash, one of the biggest author signings of the year. There’s only one person I can trust, one person who will help me do what needs to be done and keep my secret hidden from my readers.
My best friend and personal assistant, Rebecca Rhodes.
But when I ask her to put her issues aside in favor of mine, she flat-out refuses, quits, and throws my world upside down.
Becca—
I’ve been in love with Dimitri since I was fifteen years old. Yes, I know what he is. I’ve never had expectations from him. He’s my best friend, and I’m okay with that.
Besides, I have my own secrets.
I haven’t left my apartment in two years—and suddenly my boss and best friend demands I leave my safe zone and accompany him into my own personal idea of hell.
But though it means drowning in panic, in the end, I can’t deny him. I have to help him. He needs me.
Dammit.
Can Dimitri and Becca heal each other and find a love they’ve both longed for? Or will an ex from Dimitri’s past ruin it all?
So who am I?
Well, I’m the crazy girl with an imagination that never shuts up. I LOVE scary movies. My friends laugh at me when I scare myself watching them and tell me to stop watching them, but who doesn’t love to get scared? I grew up in a small town nestled in the southern mountains of West Virginia where I spent days roaming around in the woods, climbing trees, and causing general mayhem. Nights I would stay up reading Nancy Drew by flashlight under the covers until my parents yelled at me to go to sleep.
Now, I live in a small town in West Virginia where I entertain my niece and nephew and watch the cats get teased by the birds and laugh myself silly when they swoop down and then dive back up just out of reach. The cats start yelling something fierce…lol.
I love books, I love writing books, and I love entertaining people with my silly stories.
