Roxy Soulé’s debut Dragon Duchess series explores the spicier side of late Victorian England, and centers around a family of headstrong, sexpositive women who defy period stereotypes.
Oh, yes, there are Alpha Dukes aplenty, and a bevy of villains who continually torment and thwart, but at the end of the day, these heroines create their own Happily Ever After, sometimes with their lovers and sometimes despite them.
These rather short, hot books may be a bit bold for the tame reader, but if you like your stories with heat and heart – with a bit of sass, humor and spark – perhaps you will enjoy these.
TIGHT LACED (Book One of the Dragon Duchess series) releases August 11th!
Lacilia fingered the edges of the duke’s handkerchief. She ran the tip of her pinkie over the nubbed Scottish beast.
The embroidered dragon was impressive: a huge reptilian body covered with a mail of plate and scales from head to tail, ending in a great and deadly stinger. From gaping jaws emerged dangerous fangs and the belching of flame. The stitch work was more detailed than any Lacy had come across. The dragon’s beady eyes, a sharp spike on his nose, a forked tongue, eagle's feet and bat's wings.
From her tutors she had learned a bit about the rampants of Scotland. The dragon symbolized power, wisdom and clear-headedness.
But the duke? He certainly did not display clear-headedness. And what of wisdom? Lacy had no evidence of that, either.
So why did she tingle so, holding the handkerchief in her palm?
Why did her center suddenly throb with desire?
Would it be sacrilegious to pleasure herself on such a day?
Lacilia rose from her bed and tiptoed to her door. She peeked out into the long, dark hallway.
Roxy Soulé is a devotee of romance that features strong female heroines and the men they adore (or, sometimes, abhor!) Her short, hot "novelettes" are serial episodes that spark, ignite, smolder, and catch fire again. A pyromaniac's delight!
She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her family and her biggish dog, Ruby. She also LOVES to hear from readers. www.roxannesoule.com
