Three short, sensual romances, set in the Medieval and Elizabethan eras. 'Enjoyable short reads; talented author,' (4-star review).
Lord Robert, Norman ruler of the most north-easterly region of England, spares the life of Emma, the widow of an Anglo-Saxon rebel. When his wife dies in childbirth he asks Emma to become nurse to his son at Danburgh Castle.
On arrival at the castle, Emma discovers that the widowed Lord Robert is already promised to Fiona, the daughter of a Scottish thane. This arrangement does not, however, prevent Lord Robert from making advances towards his nurse. Emma resists Lord Robert’s attentions, but finds she is increasingly having to deny her own desires in order to do so.
'The plot was tight and kept me engaged; good characterisation meant I truly cared about what was happening,' (4-star review).

Rhiannon, a Welsh farmer’s daughter, is smuggled into a walled English garrison town. Harboured by a merchant and his son, her happiness is shattered when her presence in their home is discovered. Taken to the castle, Rhiannon’s fate lies in the hands of Lord Edward. Will Lord Edward believe Rhiannon’s claim that all she wants is to be a lady?

Eliza, lady-in-waiting to Lady Jane Braggot, is sent to work in the household of the noblewoman’s brother-in-law, Sir Richard, to spy on him. Upon arrival at Braggot Park, Eliza encounters Sir Richard’s son, Lorenzo, and swiftly falls under his spell.
With time, Eliza learns that all is not as it seems at Braggot Park and, when her liaison with Lorenzo is discovered, she faces a dilemma: should she obey Lorenzo’s wish that she keep his secret or redeem herself by telling Sir Richard the truth about the goings on at Braggot Park?
