ROSE BRIDE: out today in paperback

ROSE BRIDE: out now in paperback

I'm thrilled to announce that my Tudor romance, ROSE BRIDE, third book in the popular Lust in the Tudor Court series, is out today in a gorgeous paperback edition.  

It's been a long journey emotionally from contract to full publication of all three books in this series, but in actual time quite short: only just over a year. So my head is still spinning. I'm very grateful to my lovely editor Lucy Foley - good luck with your own book! - and my copy-editor Eleanor Leese - fantastic to finally meet you! - and the whole team at Hodder & Stoughton for getting my Lust in the Tudor Court series off the ground.

And the book itself is gorgeous as a physical object, rather like my Tudor heroes in this series. Stroke it and see!


She is a fallen woman, an object of men's lust ...

Margerie Croft yielded up her virginity before her wedding, and then fled from her eager suitor - knowing that she could not marry a man she did not love. Now she is viewed as soiled goods, fit for only for the role of courtier's plaything.

He sees something in her that others don't...

Virgil Elton is King Henry VIII's physician, working on a tonic to restore his sovereign's flagging libido. But first it must be tested. Who better, then, than the wanton Margerie Croft? But as he gets to know her Virgil discovers someone as intelligent and passionate as she is beautiful - someone who has been gravely misunderstood.

For her part, Margerie finds Virgil irresistible - with or without the help of his special medicine. But she knows she could never make Virgil a respectable wife. And yet, despite herself, Margerie can't help but wonder...

Can they find the formula for a lasting love?

My Regency Romances

Just a heads-up that I have a number of Regency novels available to buy on Kindle at low or extremely reasonable prices.

I love Regency romance with a passion, it's one of my top relaxing genres to read, and their sweet happy endings always bring a tear to my eye. So writing Regency romance - with its dashing heroes, feisty heroines and comedy of manners - is also one of my favourite pastimes.

Please note, the following links to my romances are for the US Amazon site only.

For UK-based readers, a list of Elizabeth Moss novels on the UK Amazon site can be found here. 

And these books have just been showcased on FEMALE FIRST along with my Tudor novels, Wolf Bride, Rebel Bride and Rose Bride!


The Earl & His Tiger

Poppeia and the Petticoat Club

















The Uncatchable Miss Faversham







  

A Most Dangerous Lady


Hope you enjoy them!

WOLF BRIDE in bestseller lists

I'm thrilled to see WOLF BRIDE and my other Tudor Bride novels in the Kindle bestseller lists at the moment for Historical Romance, Historical Erotica, Historical Suspense and even Women's Fiction!

For those who have missed all the excitement, WOLF BRIDE is the first in my Lust in the Tudor Court series, a series of interlinked erotic romances set against the drama and intrigue of Anne Boleyn's fall from grace and her subsequent execution.

Book One is WOLF BRIDE: Eloise is one of Queen Anne's maids of honour - until Lord Wolf comes to claim her as his reluctant bride. A tough soldier and a ruthless husband, he demands no less than complete obedience from Eloise. Can she ever bring herself to submit to such a man?



Book Two is REBEL BRIDE: Eloise's younger sister Susannah runs away from home dressed as a boy to avoid an arranged marriage. The only man she wants - and the only man who can save her - is Hugh Beaufort, the king's clerk. But can he ever love such a rebellious woman?



Book Three is ROSE BRIDE: (NEW) Margerie Croft is known as a courtesan, a fallen woman. When the king's physician, respectable Virgil Elton, tests the king's new aphrodisiac on her, she feels more than mere lust for him. But there are many dangers when a courtesan and a gentleman of King Henry VIII's court fall in love.

52 Ways To Write A Novel

A NEW WRITING DISCUSSION BLOG

This is just a heads-up that I have a new writing discussion blog. It's called 52 Ways To Write A Novel - one post, every week, for a year, on the art of novel-writing - and is currently heading into Week Seven.

Writers in garrets are no longer alone - thanks to social media!

Each week there is a new QUESTION about writing, which writers at all levels are encouraged to discuss in the comments. Without discussion, it's meaningless, so please come and join in!

Established writers and would-be novelists alike are encouraged to take part in the debate, chat in the comments box, share ideas or even refute what I've said. Also, please let people know on social media if you've enjoyed - or hated - 52 Ways To Write A Novel, and what you make of its topics.

I'd like as many people as possible to have their say.

Lust in the Tudor Court series sells to US and France

Book 1, Lust in the Tudor Court: WOLF BRIDE

I'm delighted to announce that my Lust in the Tudor Court series, beginning with WOLF BRIDE, has been acquired by Sourcebooks in the US and Bragelonne in France.

I feel sure my historical erotic romances will find an eager readership in the States, and am glad to see them with such a dynamic and wide-ranging publisher as Sourcebooks.

It's also very exciting to know my series will now be translated into French, and I can't wait to see the finished books from Bragelonne. Since one of their imprints is called 'Milady', I would guess the company must be named after Alexandre Dumas' third book about the three musketeers, entitled Le Vicomte de Bragelonne. Dumas' work is something I grew up with, as the child of a confirmed Francophile, so that makes me even more excited to be publishing with them!

I very much hope both these publishers will have a big success with WOLF BRIDE, REBEL BRIDE and ROSE BRIDE.

Extract from REBEL BRIDE (Lust in the Tudor Court 2)


REBEL BRIDE: out now in ebook, paperback in March

An extract from REBEL BRIDE (Lust in the Tudor Court #2):

Courtier Hugh Beaufort has agreed to accompany Susannah Tyrell - a beautiful young woman promised in marriage to an old man - back to Lord Wolf's hall after she claims to feel unwell. It's only a short ride across the Yorkshire moorland. What harm could there be? But Susannah has other plans ...


‘I think Lady has a slight sprain. To be safe, I should not ride her back to the hall but must walk.’ Susannah sighed. ‘What a nuisance. It’s not far on horseback, but will take ages on foot. And we have not yet crossed the river. My gown will be soaked.’
‘Nonsense,’ Hugh said shortly.
He dismounted and bent to examine the mare’s fetlock himself. Sure enough, the unfortunate beast did appear to have suffered a strain through putting its hoof into a rabbit hole. He was surprised by Susannah’s knowledge, and could not hide it. Most gentlewomen of his acquaintance did not have the first idea how to care for an animal.
‘Well, you are right; it does appear to be strained. But as for walking, there is no need for such drastic measures. You will have to sit up before me, that is all,’ he told her, then saw her smile and the slight flush that entered her cheeks, and cursed himself for a fool.
‘Though it might be better, over such rough terrain, for you to ride and me to lead the horse,’ he added.
Her blue eyes teased his. ‘Oh, it is not so difficult a journey from here, sir; I promise you.’
‘I thought you did not know this path.’
‘I have remembered it now.’ Susannah shook her head when he came to set her on his horse, a sudden merry defiance in her face. ‘There is no need for you to walk, good sir. You will ruin your fine courtly hose among these briars. Besides, I cannot sit that saddle. It is not fit for me.’
The wench was mocking him. You will ruin your fine courtly hose. Why, he was wearing nothing but what was fashionable in the southern reaches. Thrown off balance by her laughter, Hugh struggled to keep his patience, unaccustomed to being mocked by young women.
Especially a young woman with eyes blue as the sky in summer.
‘And why not, pray?’
‘That saddle has no hook for a lady. I cannot sit astride like a man, sir. It would not be seemly.’
She was making fun of him, Hugh was sure of it now. Not seemly? He could not imagine any gently bred lady less concerned about seemliness than this one. ‘Then you must sit side-saddle and … grip the horse’s mane, mistress. That should suffice to steady you.’
Impatiently, he put his hands to her waist, meaning to hoist her up onto his horse. But her arms came about his neck at the same time, dragging his head inexorably down to hers. He saw a bright flash – her blue eyes, dancing with mischief – then suddenly her mouth was on his, kissing him.
Afterwards Hugh could not have said for sure how it happened. One moment he was still in control, fully intending to push the saucy girl away and chastise her for such forwardness. The next moment his control had snapped, and he was kissing her back like a starving man.
Susannah might be inexperienced, an innocent virgin, but her lips felt like fire on his, impossibly hot. Reason fled on a wave of hunger, and Hugh jerked her close, abruptly needing to feel her whole body against his.
Her soft lips parted on a gasp of surprise, or perhaps fear.
At once, his tongue stroked inside her mouth, revelling in her taste, sweet as summer berries, intoxicating as wine on this hot afternoon.
God’s blood, he chided himself, he should not be kissing her like this. He was one of the king’s advisors, and he had been entrusted with Susannah’s safety and well-being by Lord Wolf less than an hour ago. Yet here he was, breaking his word as a gentleman and a courtier, and taking shameless advantage of an innocent virgin.
‘Hugh,’ she murmured against his mouth. Her hands slipped down his back and cupped his buttocks, pulling him harder into her.
Hugh was astonished by such wanton lustiness. Virgin she almost certainly was, but not as innocent as he had assumed.
To take such a firebrand into his bed …
He imagined what Sir John would say, receiving back a despoiled daughter. And his friend Lord Wolf, who had handed the girl into his care. It had seemed a small thing at the time, accepting her charge. A short ride back to the hall across easy terrain. Instead her horse had gone lame, she was burning up in his arms, and he had little doubt that in a few moments more he could have his way with her willing body.
Common sense finally reasserted itself.
‘No,’ he exclaimed, dragging his mouth from hers.
Hugh expected words of accusation and reproach from the maiden, perhaps even a slapped cheek. And he fully deserved such affronts. Yet there was only a soft sigh from Susannah, who looked up at him dreamily, her eyes half-closed, her cheeks flushed.
‘N-no, sir?’
‘No,’ he repeated, more firmly this time. His hands tightened about her slender waist. ‘You will mount and I will lead the horse. You are promised to Sir William Hanney. And I have sworn to escort you back to the hall unscathed, which I fully intend to do.’
Frustratingly, Susannah seemed unmoved by this declaration. Her hands continued to cup his buttocks, squeezing them shamelessly. ‘But what if I should have no objections to being scathed?’ she demanded, and tilted her head to one side like a little sparrow, watching him, curious to hear his response. ‘Would you change your mind, sir?’
His jaw clenched. ‘Get on the horse, Susannah.’
‘Or what?’
‘Or I shall put you across my knee.’
