Bird That Sings in Cowboy Desire anthology by Dee S Knight

Genre PNR, Cowboys

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R+

A man plagued by visions, a woman who knows only one way to help. Too bad he doesn’t believe in her remedy. But will he fight her or give in? And will he find more than he bargained for in her ideas, and in her arms?

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?

As Dee S Knight I write mostly contemporary erotic romance. I’ve also written two futuristic ménage romances. My Anne Krist persona writes sweet(er) romance and Jenna Stewart writes ménage: historical and contemporary.
How do you come up with ideas?

How does one not come up with ideas?? But if I ever find myself at a loss, I just drive around for awhile and listen to a country music station.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?

Making sure the storytelling is right. Every other thing about writing is important, but if the story isn’t right, it doesn’t matter.
When did you write your first book?

In 2002. Impatient Passion was published on Valentine’s Day, 2003.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather

Black or red? Black

Satin sheets or smooth cotton? 780-thread count cotton

Ocean or mountains? Mountains

City life or country life? Country

Party life or evening at home? Always evening at home!

A few years ago, Dee S Knight began writing, making getting up in the morning fun. During the day, her characters killed people, fell in love, became drunk with power, or sober with responsibility. And they had sex, lots of sex.
After a while, Dee split her personality into thirds. She writes as Anne Krist for sweeter romances, and Jenna Stewart for ménage and shifter stories. All three of her personas are found on the Nomad Authors website (www.nomadauthors.com). Fortunately, Dee's high school sweetheart is the love of her life and husband to all three ladies!

Meet the hero from Lord Stanton's Shocking Seaside Honeymoon by Cerise DeLand @CeriseDeLand #RFLblog #RegencyRomanceWhen a storm blows off the North Sea and slams into the village of Fenwick on Sea, the villagers prepare for the inevitable: shipwreck, flood, land slips, and stranded travelers. The Queen’s Barque Inn quickly fills with the injured, the devious, and the lonely—lords, ladies, and simple folk; spies, pirates, and smugglers all trapped together. Intrigue crackles through the village, and passion lights up the hotel.

One storm, eight authors, eight heartwarming novellas.

Lord Stanton’s Shocking Seaside Honeymoon by Cerise DeLand

Genre A Regency era Romance novella and part of the Storm and Shelter collection by The Bluestocking Belles and Friends.

Storm and Shelter is available now for Pre-order at $.99, on April 13, 2021—release day—the price goes up.

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG-13

Lord Stanton is about to marry for the second time. But his bride is so different from his first wife, now deceased. Josephine Meadows is her father’s heir to his far-flung merchant marine trading company. She’s smart, savvy and beautiful. What’s more, she’s in love with Stanton. Madly. And she has been for lo, these past six years. But now, just as they marry and go off to their first night together, and just as each is ready to prove to the other, their love, an agent of Josephine’s goes missing on the high seas. And both of them, though eager to consummate their vows, must go off to discover if the agent is dead…or alive.

Know the Hero from Lord Stanton’s Seaside Honeymoon

It’s late, he’s bored. What does he do?

Stanton, of late, likes poetry. Love sonnets to be exact! He’s eager to claim his new bride in all ways and reading erotic words is not what he should be doing!

What kind of food would he impulse buy if hungry?

“I have simple tastes. But I do enjoy a finely done roast of beef.”

Describe the kind of clothes he prefers to wear.

“I wore a uniform whilst in the Hussars and now I prefer my black superfine. My tailor is a marvel and I need not appear in his shop to be fitted. This is a blessing as I am a busy man working in Whitehall to defeat that scoundrel Napoleon.”

Valet or takes care of himself?

“I do employ a valet. A fine fellow who knows how precisely I wish to dress. More than that, he is astute and knows when to appear and when to vanish!”

Necktie/cravat or open shirt?

“I do appreciate a cravat tied in such a manner as to remain tied!”

Carriage or horseback?

“Both means of conveyance have their uses. A horse is a proper beast for quick travel. Also, sadly, for the battlefield. Of carriages, I demand comfort and the best springs. No use breaking one’s bones in order to arrive at a tea party, eh?”

Thanks for helping us get to know your hero!

An Improbable Hero: By Mary Lancaster

Lord Stanton’s Shocking Seaside Honeymoon: By Cerise DeLand

Aspen Gold Authors Social Media

Once upon a time a group of writer friends–helping a member with a particularly difficult thread in a continuity series contrived by her editors–got the grandiose idea to create a continuity series of their own.
Yes, this was us, and we threw ourselves wholeheartedly into developing characters, fashioning families, family dynamics, and a setting, which evolved from one member’s love of all things Colorado. We created family trees, character profiles, detailed maps, brainstormed titles and themes. We collected photos and researched and even started the stories. We proposed our idea to a few publishers and got no traction. So, after a time the contracted books came first, two members dropped out of the group, a couple new ones came and went. But the core group remained.
In a tragic turn of events we lost a beloved friend and co-writer. Grief took the remaining wind from our sails. We recovered slowly, welcomed a new friend to our critique group. Then came a day when we got together and said, “We’re going to get serious and do this!” Energy built, and the series took on new life. A previous co-creator joined us again. Now, here we are, years after the initial idea, sharing the finished stories with you and hoping you will feel the same intensity and appreciation for this project as we do.
We have many more stories to share, and the ideas keep coming. Look for more books to follow in Aspen Gold: The Series.
