As you’ve probably realised, the past few weeks have been all about zombies! But today, just to change things up a little, I’ve been lucky enough to score a steamy excerpt from M. S. Kaye’s current release, the fabulous Fight Princess.
Blurb for Fight Princess:
Things aren’t what they seem. Don’t get involved.
Celisse is too headstrong to listen. Her best friend’s boyfriend is dead, and she does not heed Cullen’s warning, slipped to her in a note as he’s being arrested for the murder.
Cullen tries to keep Celisse out of danger and also tries to avoid her, both unsuccessfully. He can’t deny his feelings for her anymore, but he knows he can’t have her. If she ever discovered the truth about his past, she’d surely hate him.
While struggling with her intense feelings for Cullen, Celisse uses her skills as an ex-prosecutor to…

Sometimes I find it easy to get overwhelmed by the task in front of me. Surrounded by the complex characters and sublime worlds of my favourite books, I wonder if it is delusion and hubris to think that I can claim the title author. Recently in my search for advice to new authors, I came across this great blog post that shared tips from famous authors to new and emerging writers. This one I particularly loved:
Start telling the stories that only you can tell, because there’ll always be better writers than you and there’ll always be smarter writers than you. There will always be people who are much better at doing this or doing that – but you are the only you. ― Neil Gaiman
I love it because it says to me – you don’t have to be one of the great writers, you just…

Every now and then something special drifts out of the oceanic abyss and floats gently onto the waiting shore. Pursued by the Knight is my kind of erotica. Sadie Dane focuses on the telling of a great story; the erotica is there to enhance that story, not just to titillate.
Pursued by the Knight tells the tale of a woman’s internal conflict; Georgianna must marry a man she despises for the good of her people and thereby ensures the security of her father’s kingdom. Resigned to her fate, she doesn’t expect his most valiant knight to seduce and capture her heart. Resonant of the good old days of Guinevere, King Arthur and Lancelot, I think you will love this tale of passion and deception. Sadie Dane has a unique and original voice, and her writing style holds your attention to the very last, heated page. I won’t drop any spoilers, but, as…
