About the author:
International bestselling author Vanessa Brooks lives in Sussex England. She has a lifelong love of history, most especially English and American. She has written a couple of western tales, one notably for the Red Petticoat series which was such a huge success in America. Her Georgian series, Masterful Husbands, set in the 1700's has also proved highly successful both sides of the Atlantic.<br />
My novels are generally historically based; I am told that I have a knack of bringing an authenticity to the era in which my novels are set. I carefully research each time period and strive to ensure that any historical facts I use are correct.<br />
More importantly, I like to write an entertaining book for my readers to enjoy. I include passion, adventure, romance and domestic discipline, de rigueur within the eras of my popular racy, historical romance novels.
What inspired you to write your book?
I have always been fascinated by English and American history. The 1700's was a time of exploration and war. It was also an exciting and colourful period. The clothing for both men and women was flamboyant and sexy. What fascinates me is the relationship between men and women of that era. Men actually owned their wives! Women could not own property. There was no rape within marriage by law and domestic discipline was normal for most married couples. I wanted to write a series of books set in this interesting Georgian era, using a cast of female characters from the aristocracy. Each woman has a very different personality and each find a unique experience with their marriages, except for their one shared experience, spanking! The plots are all different but all contain strong elements of humour and romance. The first of these five tales was written along with author Beth Bennett the series continued in a more risqué vein, with myself as the sole author.
Here is a short sample from the book:
Then his mouth covered hers, teeth clashed as he tore at her mouth. “Mine,” he ground out against her lips. The message seared into her soul, reinforced by a powerful wave of explosive pleasure that shook her to the core, ripping through her so violently that she howled her release like a she wolf.
