London, England – Winter of 1860
When all the ladies of London realize that handsome and refined gentleman, the Duke of Ainsley, is formally looking for a wife, only weeks before Christmas, a mad dash to claim him begins. Miss Barrington knows her chances with the duke are incredibly good given what her close gypsy friend had once foretold, but a forgotten wager with her greatest nemesis, American millionaire, Mr. Redstone, is about to bring on complications and…chaos.

Will she claim the respectable and dashing duke which was once foretold by the stars? Or will she fall for Mr. Redstone and go against destiny? Only the days leading up to Christmas will tell!

My dearest Reader,

Even if you’ve read Lord of Pleasure, you’re in for a big surprise. Having recently acquired the rights back to this book from my former publisher, I felt Lord Hawksford was a bit too cocky for his own good. He needed a backstory to go with that cock, so to speak. So I gave him one. Think you know Lord Hawksford? Think again. He wasn’t always popular with the ladies…

Happy Reading and Much love to you,

Delilah Marvelle

What’s coming up next? This November, I’ll be introducing a whole new cast of characters who will melt far more than snow…

The Christmas Wager

And for those of you wondering about the first Whipping Society novel, that is currently being written and will hit your digital devices in the late winter/early spring. I can’t WAIT to share my own experiences of hiring a dominatrix (I take my research seriously!) and what it was like to enter the BDSM world while holding a historical mask to what had once been. Are you ready to meet Mr. Ridley? I am.

Mistress of Pleasure


My dearest Reader,

Having recently acquired the rights back to this playful, naughty book, I decided to do far more than slap a new cover on it. Even if you’ve read Mistress of Pleasure, you’ll find since it’s original publication back in 2008, this book has undergone a metamorphosis. This revamped second edition has countless new scenes, both romantic and hilarious in nature, which were added throughout the book in an effort to make you feel like you’re reading it for the first time. How much of it has changed? Almost everything. I dare you to revisit a book that started it all.

To celebrate this revamped release, Mistress of Pleasure will be available for .99¢ until July 6th, after which it will go up to its full price. So download your copy today! And make sure you look out for the revamped version of Lord of Pleasure, which will be hitting stores in two weeks! A New Release Alert will be sent to ensure you don’t miss out on getting Hawksford for only .99¢!

Happy Summer and Much love to you,

Delilah Marvelle

Mistress of Pleasure


These two are about to redefine pleasure…

Granddaughter of a renowned courtesan, Maybelle Maitenon has no interest in her grandmother’s school in London where gentlemen receive instruction–in the art of seduction. Her only desire in life is to remain independent and free from men and their overbearing expectations. But when Maybelle lays eyes on the Duke of Rutherford, who is well-known for his gentlemanly ways, she can’t resist. Neither she or the duke are prepared for what their attraction is about to do not only to their sanity but their hearts. 

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!


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,
Delilah Marvelle

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


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,
