Author: Nicola Davidson

Formats: Paperback, eBook
Lady Janet Fraser didn’t earn her reputation as Scotland’s most notorious sinner by following the rules. A former mistress of King James IV, she’s content to live her life from pleasure to pleasure. Even if those pleasures—and people—are forbidden.
People like Sir Lachlan Ross, given the moniker The Highland Beast, a man as intimidating in battle as he is in size. A beast she discovers secretly wishes to be tamed and submit to her dominance.
Or like her new ward, Lady Marjorie Hepburn, a convent-raised virgin with a desire to be taught all the sensual secrets of the marriage bed. Things that Janet is fully willing to teach her, again and again. There’s much for her to learn.
And forbidden pleasures like the three of them together in one bed.
But Lachlan and Marjorie both have ties to the king. As wicked lusts are indulged and affection unexpectedly grows into love, breaking the rules this time could mean all of their undoing…
- What is on your nightstand?
A cup of water, lotions and potions, and a large pile of books.
- What author would you totally fan?
Susan Johnson, who was writing hot historicals in a range of locations and eras with explicit language and wonderful period detail (plus an appendix with juicy facts) long before it became more mainstream.
- What makes you cringe?
Badly written sex and/or kink scenes that ignore fundamentals like consent. Especially with lots of euphemisms. Unless it’s one of those fab alien romps, I really don’t want to read about stalks in sexytimes.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I’m probably 10% plotter – I write character bios and set up before I start. Then a sentence outlining what will happen in a scene and the point of view. The rest is all pantser. Sometimes the direction the characters go surprises me, and that keeps it interesting.
- Is there a word you love to use?
Ha – I have a little list that I do a search on after I’ve completed the first draft. I’m pretty bad with ‘was’ and things like churning stomach or clenched jaw. Spot the stressed out author!
NICOLA DAVIDSON worked for many years in communications and marketing as well as television and print journalism, but hasn’t looked back since she decided writing wicked historical romance was infinitely more fun. When not chained to a computer she can be found ambling along one of New Zealand’s beautiful beaches, cheering on the All Blacks rugby team, history geeking on the internet or daydreaming. If this includes chocolate – even better!
