My dearest Reader,

Ever wonder about the life of Madame de Maitenon? Wonder no more! The last book in the School of Gallantry series is out!

AVAILABLE NOW IN ALL DIGITAL STORES: KINDLE, NOOK, IBOOKS, KOBO

As with all my new releases, as a special thank you to my readers who gallantly run out to get the book the moment it hits, THE DUKE OF ANDELOT will be .99¢ only until midnight April 15th, so don’t wait! After April 15th, the book will go up to its full price of $3.99.  The print version of this book will be released April 28th.

The Story behind the story:

The amount of research that went into this book was staggering. I started researching it two years ago and loved every breathing moment of it. Thérèse and Gérard first appeared to me when I was in France researching the French Revolution and I knew their incredible story had to be told. What I ended up creating was a very twisted version of The Scarlet Pimpernel meets The Sex and the City.

The inspiration for Thérèse (aside from Ninon de L’enclos) is my knock off of Marilyn Monroe. People like to slap around women who bitch about good looks being a big problem in life. I used to be one of those people until I read more about Marilyn’s life. It inspired me to give Marilyn a nod in this book. It never ceases to astound me how fellow women have a tendency to slap around other women who want to be taken seriously outside of their appearance. It’s the whole snarky attitude of “Oh, to have such problems as being beautiful.” Of course, most of us can’t even relate to being THAT beautiful. It is a modern perception because back in history a woman’s appearance was all a woman was. Our idea of imperfection today is completely different from the idea of imperfection back in history. I naturally wanted to bring humor to it, because modern readers could not even begin to understand just how annoying it would have been. Marilyn Monroe was dealing with it just back in the 50’s. Take it back to 1792…

That said, there is a very special cameo appearance in this book given to a character better known to you and the world as Marquis de Sade. What few people know is that Marquis de Sade, despite being an aristocrat, denounced his title and was very much involved with the French Revolution Committees. He found freedom when he was released by the masses after being imprisoned for ‘lewdness’ for many, many years. The masses decided a lewd man is exactly what they needed to lead the New Nation of France and I thought such a man would add a level of incredible history to this saga. He eventually pissed off Robespierre and landed back in prison (what a guy), but it was a sliver of history too good to pass up. How does he play into the story? You’re going to have to read to find out!

Thank you so much for being a reader!

Much love,

P.S. What’s next? The Whipping Society! I’m doing a ton of incredible research relating to BDSM in 1830. Long, long ago, before there was even a term for it (BDSM was actually coined in 1969), there were brothels and circles dedicated to the art of the birch and whip. And believe me when I say they took their art seriously. What can you expect from this series? An introduction to what brothels were really like in the Victorian era, real historical figures, and romance that will whip the breath out of you. I am currently working on Book 1. Do you remember hearing the name Mr. Ridley from Lady of Pleasure? Want to know more about Book 1? Click HERE.

 

 

My dearest Reader,

Happy Thanksgiving to those living in the States! And happy early surprise! Guess what just hit all digital stores?! Since this series was first launched back in 2008, I have gotten *countless* emails asking about the mysterious, brooding Lord Brayton. At long last…he’s here! Because the content of this book goes a touch beyond what you’re used to getting from me….I suggest you read the disclaimer. Ehm.

WARNING: This historical romance is cotton candy with a razor on top. Themes include male virginity, BDSM, religion and language you really shouldn’t use at home. If you are easily offended by graphic sex and dirty humor, this book is not for you.

If you think you can handle Lord Brayton, I invite you to download the man and see if he stays on your lap.

As with all my New Releases, MASTER OF PLEASURE will be .99¢ until midnight Nov. 30th, so don’t wait! After Nov. 30th, the book will go up to its full and permanent price of $4.99 (Aren’t you happy you signed up for this New Release Alert? Of course you are!) The print version of this book will be released Dec. 15th

AVAILABLE NOW IN ALL DIGITAL STORES: KINDLE, NOOK, KOBO and iBOOKS

So what’s next???  I am currently working on Book 6, the Finale of the School of Gallantry: The Duke of Andelot. It’s due for release sometime in the spring of 2015. I went to France last year to research the heck out of the French Revolution, which will be extensively incorporated into this book and will follow Madame and the Duc from their youth in 1789 to what they ultimately become in 1830. The School of Gallantry is about to come full circle and I’m SO excited to share this sweeping saga with you. After all, Madame deserves her happily ever after, too!

Thank you so much for being a reader!

Sending out kisses and much love,

DELILAH MARVELLE
