13 Random Travel/History Facts from Britain

Thursday Thirteen

Recently, I’ve been reading editions of Britain, one of my favorite travel magazines. It’s full of articles about different places in Britain and covers heritage, culture and various happenings in the UK. It’s a great magazine to read when planning a visit, which is why I’m busy reading back issues at present.

Here are thirteen random things that grabbed my interest:

1. In the film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang the car flew for the first time when it fell of Beachy Head.

2. The 3rd Earl of Egremont had 42 illegitimate children and the “Wyndham nose” can still be spotted in the streets of Petworth.

3. Every coronation since 1066 has been held in Westminster Abbey. William the Conqueror was crowned King of England on Christmas day, 1066.

4. The Scottish people celebrate Burns Night on 25 January to commemorate the life of poet Robert Burns who was born on this day in 1759. Lots of traditional foods such as haggis, neeps (turnips), tatties (potatoes), whisky and shortbread are served during the celebration.

5. Mary, Queen of Scots, was fond of a crisp, buttery shortbread made with caraway seeds.

6. In Norman times the word “forest” referred to a legal system in place to protect the venison.

7. While in prison in England, Mary, Queen of Scots, became adept at secret handwriting to communicate with the outside world. She used alum dissolved in water as invisible ink and wrote messages on bills. Recipients dropped the paper in water and the writing appeared.

8. There is no single copy of the original Magna Carta document. Multiple copies of the charter were distributed throughout medieval English towns.

9. The Magna Carta documents were written in Latin on parchment made from dried sheepskin.

10. A first edition of the novel Emma by Jane Austen was dedicated to the Prince Regent.

11. The term “livery” has come to denote the uniforms of certain servants, but in medieval times it meant a living allowance that included food, money and other rewards.

12. A tax on male servants started in 1777, raised to help fund British fighting against North American colonists after their declaration of independence, lasted until the 1930s.

13. John Russell, a servant to the Duke of Gloucester, wrote advice for servants in the book “The Book of Nurture.” Would-be servants were given the following advice – Do not pick your nose or let it drop clear pears, or sniff, or blow it too loud, lest her lord hear. Do not retch, nor spit too far.

I don’t think a servant’s life would have worked for me, but I’d love to attend Burns Night, and I’ve never met a piece of shortbread, I didn’t like. Caraway seeds would totally work for me. What say you?

Seized and Seduced: That Graphic Enough for You?

My Sexy Saturday

This week I’m spotlighting my latest release, Seized & Seduced, which is book three in my House of the Cat series, but it can be read as a stand alone. Seized & Seduced is a mmf paranormal romance.

“She looks like a warrior,” Lynx said.

Shiloh silently agreed as he scanned her body. She wasn’t as beautiful as some women he’d known, but she was sleek and muscular, her features bold and striking. Not his type. Probably not Lynx’s either. He glanced up at Lynx and found the prince watching him. A bolt of lust struck him so hard he gasped.

“Gods,” he muttered, not releasing Lynx’s gaze.

Lynx gave him a nervous smile but didn’t glance away either. “It’s not just me who feels as if I’m about to jump out of my skin?”

“No. I know what I want to do. It’s probably not wise.”

Lynx swallowed, the strong chords of his throat moving noticeably. “Tell me.”

“I want to rip off your clothes and touch you.” Shiloh was amazed he could keep his voice steady with urgency crashing his mind. When Lynx didn’t reply, Shiloh continued. “I want to put my mouth on you, rub our cocks together. And I want to fuck you.” His left hand clenched against the calibore’s fur. “That graphic enough for you?”

Wild Child–Unrequited Love

My Sexy Saturday

This week’s theme for My Sexy Saturday is A Long Sexy Time and it’s all about those who have loved another for a long time. This love could have started when they were kids, when they were dating or even from afar. The point is that one character has loved the other for what seems like forever. In some stories, it is forever. The possibilities here are endless.

I’m showcasing Wild Child today, the very first book I self-published. Zoe has loved Matt for a long time, and she’s taking this last chance to prove to Matt that they have a future together. This scene takes place when Zoe arrives at Matt’s apartment in Australia unexpectedly.

Zoe wanted to laugh at the shock on Matt’s face. She shivered inwardly as pleasure surged in a molten rush to the achy spot between her legs. Her nipples were tight and crying out for attention. Tim, her childhood partner in crime and the only man she’d ever had sex with, had never made her feel like this with just a touch. Oh, they’d enjoyed their experimenting and remained close friends, but this… This was in a whole other league.

Her gaze slid over his naked chest, drifted up and down then settled on his biceps. “The Celtic tattoo is new. I like it.”

Matt didn’t answer, and she fought bubbling humor as she turned for his bedroom, putting an extra sashay in her steps. She’d never felt more feminine, more aware of her needs and power. In the bedroom, a secret smile curved her lips as she undid the robe and let it drop to the floor. She had loved him forever and instinctively knew what she felt wasn’t the love of a sister for a brother. It was more. Bigger. Now that she was here, she realized he was the reason she found every other man lacking.

Despite what people might say, there was no familial relationship between them. She was old enough now. Love between them wasn’t a sin. Nothing this beautiful could be a crime.

“You can’t—For God’s sake! Put some clothes on.” Matt had followed her, and now he looked as if he’d taken a bite from a sour apple.

“I always sleep in the nude.” She wanted to laugh so much her chest hurt. Then his gaze lit on her boobs and lingered. As he stared, her breasts prickled. The humor inside dropped away, replaced by growing lust. She trembled, sensual need winding her tight inside. With great daring, she gave into her need and stroked the palms of her hands across the taut peaks.

“Stop that,” he said. “God, I’ve fallen down a bloody rabbit hole. It’s the only explanation.”

Wild Child

BLURB:

Zoe Underwood is one sexy disruption.

From the moment her father married Matt’s mother, Zoe has tempted Matt Cantrell with her seductive curves and driven him crazy with her flirting and provocative manner. The thing is they have no future because Zoe is his stepsister. Determined to dodge trouble, Matt leaves Auckland to live and work in the Gold Coast of Australia. A sea between them should do the trick and let him move forward without the “Zoe” distraction in his life.

Matt Cantrell is one stubborn dude.

No one presses Zoe’s buttons like the tall, dark and gorgeous Matt. In fact, every other man pales in comparison. One last play. Zoe decides to invade Matt’s territory and make her move before some other clever woman snaps him up. She’ll bust through emotional walls and push boundaries. By the time she’s finished, Matt won’t know what hit him. Yes. Good or bad, she’ll stir things up and take a chance on love.

Maybe Tomorrow: Sea of Change – a shifter romance

My Sexy Saturday

The theme is week is “Our Sexy Tomorrow”. I immediately thought of Sea of Change, my latest release. When Asia sees Roman Anderson across a crowded room she is stunned. He comes from an enemy tribe of orca shifters, but he doesn’t recognize her. When he asks her out on a date, she can’t resist. She’s thinking about her upcoming sexy night and has no intention of a sexy tomorrow. After all, Roman is the enemy, even if he is gorgeous. Then Roman is attacked and he thinks they’re married…

“I’m gonna shower before hitting the sack. Wash off this blood. Okay with you, sweetheart?”

“Um, sure.” The idea of him naked in her shower pushed her libido a notch higher. This wasn’t fair. He’d remember everything tomorrow and head back to his island kingdom without another word of sex or bed or anything resembling horizontal. That’s if he deigned to speak to her. For some unfathomable reason she wasn’t concerned with her safety, because he didn’t strike her as a bad man. She hoped she wasn’t wrong.

“You going to shower with me?”

Asia felt herself blink. Oh man, temptation on two legs, but it wasn’t right to take advantage of a man in this condition. “You need to sleep. If I shower with you we’ll get sidetracked.”

Roman’s dark gaze tracked down her body and back up to her face. A sexy smile—another of those panty-lowering ones—bloomed on his battered face. “That is true,” he acknowledged. “Maybe you’re right. It’ll be quicker if I shower on my own.” He slipped the ripped and bloody suit jacket off and let it drop to the floor.

When he started on the buttons of his shirt, Asia decided it was time to flee. “I’ll grab you a clean towel.” She shot from her bedroom as if a pack of Resident Orcas were after her. Her breathing had turned choppy and her palms were moist. She felt as if she’d swum across the Tasman Sea from Australia to New Zealand in record time. Asia wiped the dampness from her palms and took a deep breath. This couldn’t continue. She was an adult, for goodness sake. With trembling hands, she tugged open the cupboard and seized several towels.

The pipes clanked, indicating Roman had found the shower and turned on the water. Just the image of his naked body made her break into a cold sweat. Asia scowled. All she could think of was sex. The rush of pleasure at the moment of orgasm. Doing it with Roman. Her steps slowed. She heard the shower door open and close and imagined his naked body. Muscled. Tanned. Very touchable.

Oh boy.

Sea of Change

BLURB:

A sexy face in the crowd…

Orca shifter Asia Bolino can’t believe the gorgeous cutie is Roman Anderson. They belong to enemy tribes, but she’d love to run her fingers over his…assets. Roman doesn’t recognize her, and in a moment of weakness, Asia agrees to a late-night date, a little forbidden pleasure.

Someone attacks Roman while he waits for Asia. Aware of his shifter status, Asia does the only thing she can—she takes him back to her apartment. The problem is when he regains consciousness, he thinks they’re married. He parades around her apartment wearing nothing but a smile, and Asia is weak. She succumbs to his charm and skilful loving. Hip-deep in lies, she’s aware the sensual bubble might burst at any moment. That might mean bloodshed, and she can’t allow that to happen. Worse, Roman doesn’t seem to recall he’s a shifter.

Asia struggles with guilt while melting at Roman’s touch. Nothing can come of their relationship, and now it seems someone knows the truth and they’re both in danger.

Sea of Change: 13 Facts About Killer Whales

Thursday Thirteen

This week, my latest book went live at most online retailers. Sea of Change is a paranormal shifter romance featuring orcas.

Thirteen Facts About Killer Whales

1. The killer whale is also known as an orca.

2. They are a toothed whale and are actually the largest members of the dolphin family.

3. They are a mammal and eat a carnivore diet. (fish, seabirds, squid, seals and other whales)

4. They can live up to 80 years in the wild. The females usually live longer than the males.

5. The killer whale lives in a pod of family members, and these pods can contain as many as 40 orca.

6. Killer whales can be divided into resident pods and transient pods, a fact I used in my Sea of Change story.

7. Resident pods tend to frequent one area while transient pods have much larger territories.

8. The pod members work together to hunt for food.

9. Each pod communicates in a distinctive manner using echolocation.

10. Female orcas give birth every three to ten years and the pregnancy lasts for 15 – 18 months. The mother nurses the calf for at least a year.

11. The killer whale has very distinctive black and white coloring. They are intelligent and acrobatic, frequently breaching, spyhopping and slapping their flippers.

12. It’s easy to tell the difference between the male and female. The males are longer and bulkier. Their dorsal fins are much larger, reaching higher than a metre in height.

Janaya: An Alien Encounter

My Sexy Saturday

We all know that love happens and we want to know all about those special moments where those entities realize there is an emotional bond between one another. It can happen on an average day, during the night, in the middle of a zombie invasion or maybe a place where it’s hard to tell the day from the night like in a submarine or deep in space. The one thing we do know it’s going to be hot…hot…HOT!

This week I’m featuring an upcoming release, Janaya, which is book one in my Alien Encounter series. It’s currently available for pre-order as part of the Sing a Song of the Stars bundle.

This scene takes place just after Janaya and her aunt have crashed and they meet Luke, an Earth cop.

“Hello there.” The man’s voice slid across her skin like soft, satiny monterey petals, drawing her body tight with unexpected sensual need. Fascinated by the Earthman, her gaze drifted down to the column of tanned flesh showing in the V of his blue shirt. An urgent need to slide her tongue across the same path her gaze had taken gripped her mind. She took half a step forward to complete the action before her brain jerked into gear then screeched to an appalled halt. A soft choking noise drew her gaze northward to gleaming dark brown eyes. Hot eyes that simmered with an answering passion.

Janaya took another half a step to close the distance between them.

“Down, girl,” her aunt murmured, placing one bony hand on her arm in warning.

The clear transparency with which her aunt saw her need brought a blush of hot color to her cheeks and that too, flowed down her body, converging in one achy spot.

Janaya opened her mouth but all that emerged was an undignified croak. Instead of interrogating him, her mind drifted to wonder what his dark hair would feel like as it slid between her fingers, if the passion that arced in the air between them would translate to hot, uninhibited mating. There had to be more to the process than what she’d discovered so far with Santana.

Aware of his laughing eyes scanning her face, her body, Janaya tried to dislodge the huge lump in her throat with a dry swallow. The throbbing silence stretched. Luckily, her aunt came to the rescue interrupting her frantic thoughts by taking the initiative.

“Good afternoon,” she chirped. “And it’s a great one, too. I’m Hinekiri Jones. And this is my niece, Janaya Smith.”

Sing a Song of the Stars

BLURB:

Book 1 in the Alien Encounter series.

Janaya is a bodyguard on a mission. She must protect her Aunt Hinekiri from mercenaries and return to Dalcon in time to take her captain’s exam. A simple assignment for an officer of her caliber—except nothing goes as planned. Their spaceship crash-lands on Earth. No spare parts available. Big problem

Janaya is stuck on a tiny outpost called New Zealand. She’s going to bungle her promotion chances. And because she neglected to have her travel inoculations in her urgent hurry to protect her aunt, Janaya has bonded with an Earthman.

Police officer Luke Morgan seeks a quiet life. No press. No nosy reporters. No women. Just lots of fishing and fresh country air. He doesn’t count on meeting a pair of aliens and a talking dog or participating in a shootout with purple-suited aliens. Nor does he expect the surge of lust he experiences for Janaya. Suddenly a routine callout turns into a big problem that Luke suspects might only be the tip of the iceberg.

Addicted to Cimmaron: Tamaki from Stranded & Seduced

My Sexy Saturday

Our theme is My Sexy Addiction. We are addicted to love and all its many facets. Our sexiness can happen anywhere, anytime, day or night. People fall in love in many different ways. It could be on a date, at a school dance, on a hike, with the boy or girl next door, just anywhere two or sometimes more people or beings are drawn together because of that feeling called love.

My sexy snippet comes from Stranded & Seduced, a stand alone book within my House of the Cat series. Tamaki meets Cimmaron for the first time. She grabs his attention and refuses to let go. Oh, yes. He’s addicted to love.

Tamaki made an excuse to leave the office. He had to—a matter of gathering his wits before he did something stupid. Like grabbing the golden woman, forcing her sexy mouth open and shoving his tongue halfway down her throat. Hell, he wanted to do more than that. A bubbling ball of confusion lay beneath the desperate need coursing through his body. In his job as manager of the club, he’d seen lots of beautiful women. He’d spent time with some of them on the upper level, fucking their brains out for mutual pleasure. He’d only dated, never felt the need to have any woman three times.

Twice a date, thrice a mate. Now there was the kicker. He’d never wanted that before because no woman had tempted him. He ambled out to the bar, deep in thought.

“Problem?” Rico asked.

“Yeah.” Tamaki jerked his head toward his office. “You could say that.”

“You want me to get rid of her?”

“No!” Tamaki’s reply was instant. No, he didn’t want that. He had rather more sensual plans in mind. First, he’d strip the ugly tunic from her body. The chocolate-brown fabric made her appear sexless. Instinct told him that beneath the brown cloth she bore a pleasing shape. It was the way she held herself, the proud bearing. The flash of vulnerability in her eyes that vanished the instant she noticed anyone was watching her, replaced by a tough, no-nonsense attitude.

Tamaki imagined sliding his hands under her brown tunic, fanning his fingers to measure the width of her waist and slowly moving them up to cup her breasts. He wondered about size. Shape. His palms tingled and his cock woke abruptly, pushing against the placket of his trews with enough vigor to make Tamaki uncomfortable.

Stranded & Seduced by Shelley Munro

BLURB:

Resistance is futile.

Cimmaron Zhaan refuses to follow the traditional path of a Dlog woman. Instead she dreams of traveling through space and flying spaceships for the Coalition. Years of hard work bring her goal within grasp until her superior seeks sexual favors and leaves her stranded on the isolated planet of Marchant.

Enter sexy club manager Tamaki Grierson. Cimmaron’s not looking for a mate, but there’s no denying that sparks fly between them. Desperate to leave Marchant, she’s determined to resist him. All she wants is to keep her head down and work—no romance for her.

But there’s something strange about the club and curiosity leads Cimmaron into trouble. Before she knows it, she’s naked with Tamaki and his best friend. Kisses. Heated embraces and torrid sex. Their loving is breathtaking. Her resistance is at low ebb, her heart and mind battling the overwhelming attraction she feels for Tamaki. If she isn’t careful, her Dlog hormones will tie her to Tamaki for life and her struggle to fly spaceships will be for naught.

13 Eerie American Destinations

Thursday Thirteen

I picked up a copy of Eerie America: Travel Guide of the Macabre by ER Vernor & Kevin Eads at my local library. An interesting guide. I’ve picked out thirteen spots that appealed to me for my TT this week.

Thirteen Macabre American Destinations

1. The Body Farm, Tennessee – a place used to study changes that occur in bodies after death. There are usually around fifty bodies in various states of decay. Some are submerged in water while others are exposed to the elements. A very important place that helps forensic scientists to learn.

2. The Bullock Hotel, Deadwood, South Dakota – Seth Bullock and Sol Star opened a hardware store on this site and later added a hotel over the store. It’s said that Seth Bullock haunts this hotel. He’s often seen while staff are standing idle, and it’s said he expects his staff to work hard!

3. Extraterrestrial Highway, Nevada – popular with UFO enthusiasts who drive along this highway hoping to see evidence of UFOs.

4. Bannock Ghost Town, Montana – A gold town established in 1862. Visitors to the Hotel Meade and the hospital have encountered strange apparitions.

5. Ball Cemetery, Springfield, Nebraska – One of the residents, Rattlesnake Pete, is said to wander the cemetery and torment visitors.

6. Moore House, Villisca, Iowa – The residents of the house were discovered dead, murdered by an axe to the head. Visitors have heard children playing and laughing and whispering.

7. Idaho State Penitentiary, Idaho – this is a popular place with ghost hunters. Visitors say they can feel the presence of the inmates and the guards, and some visitors have aborted their tours because they can’t stand the creepy atmosphere.

8. Alcatraz, San Francisco, California – a well-known prisoner that is said to be full of restless spirits. I didn’t see any when hubby and I visited many years ago, but it certainly had an atmosphere!

9. The Bird Cage Theatre, Tombstone, Arizona – this was considered one of the wildest places in the wild west. It was the scene of over twenty-five murders. Visitors and employees have seen ghosts of cowboys and prostitutes. Hearing music and yelling coming from different parts of the building isn’t unusual.

10. Sing Sing Prison Museum, New York – this museum houses genuine weapons taken from inmates. Visitors can have their photos taken in cells.

11. Ford Theater, Washington, DC – Some people say the assassination of Lincoln replays here. Other people have heard gunshots or running footsteps.

12. Lake Champlain, Vermont – it’s said a beast inhabits the waters here much like the Loch Ness Monster. Locals have nicknamed the beast Champ.

13. Nemacolin Castle, Pennsylvania – Visitors have captured strange images on film, and it’s said that up to ten different ghosts inhabit the castle. Some believe the castle is a portal to the spiritual world.

Have you visited any of these places? Do you have any favorite creepy places to recommend?
