The Release of SILK AND STEEL by Lindsay Townsend

Oh Kittens all, who adore historical lust and love, especially in the time of ancient Rome, this is the ebook for you! No one does it better than Lindsay Townsend.
The Kougar has read the two excerpts featured at Siren-BookStrand... let’s simply meow and yowl a big X-cited yum of approval ~ ~

Blurb ~

Decimus buys beautiful, red-headed Corinna from Silvinus Cato, a nominal Christian and her cold Roman master. Corinna, also a Christian, is terrified to be sold to a hired killer but finds Decimus to be an honorable, caring man - and overwhelmingly sexy.

Their lovemaking introduces her to passion she has never known before, and love-spanking that she finds deeply erotic. Happy for the first time in her life, she is horrified when her former master, Silvinus Cato, comes to Decimus' house with devastating information. Decimus, whom she is beginning to care for deeply, has killed Joseph, the holy man who converted her to Christianity. Silvinus Cato says she must be like Judith in the Bible and kill Decimus in his sleep. Corinna is appalled and suspicious. Why does Silvinus Cato want Decimus dead? And what should she do?

Yes, my loveliest KitKats, the Kougar has become delightfully spoiled by the sunsets on her tame prairie. They seem like gifts from the Divine. The luminous wash of colors from her panorama view range from sheer tints to flaming neon. In a world of craziness and ever-increasing insanity, the Kougar’s very being is indeed, grateful.
She is also grateful for the small bounty of her tiny garden. Tomatoes, monster cucumbers, finally some green peppers, jalapeno peppers and her adorable baby pumpkins, which have taken over part of the fence.
Maybe next year moi will be able to improve her set up and grow even more fresh veggies and fruits... purring maybe.

Omy, omy, the Kougar is listening to ‘VAMPIRE CHICKEN’ a song by an actor in The Green Mile, Doug Hutchinson, who has created an internet vampire series ~ Vampire Killers ~

Two Colorado earthquakes recently in the Pike’s Peak area that didn’t appear to make the national news... one was over magnitude three and the other over magnitude four... hmmmm...

Just for the cowboy lovin’ big cats ~ a sneaky peekie THE LAST WRITTEN PARAGRAPHS-snippet from BRANDED BY THE TEXANS...

“Hey, beautiful, there’s a message arriving.”
She nodded, her cheek brushing his shoulder. Straightening away from his chest, Kylie felt him lift her before him. “Bathroom,” she murmured, spinning around.
He caught her waist, so fast it stunned her briefly. There was no way to fight his Titan-muscled arm, either. “What?” she demanded.
“Not too long, darlin’, or I’m coming in after you. I like you sittin’ on my lap.”
Defiance flared hotly inside her. “It takes as long as it takes.”
Drawing her backwards, he nuzzled behind her ear, near her lobe. Sensually, he stroked his nose along upwards and Kylie shivered inside, adoring what he did to her. “Not too long,” he rasped. Lazily he nibbled down the side of her neck, then slowly removed his arm.
“Now that’s persuasion,” she muttered, moving away from him.

Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues....

Part 237 ~

Sylva glanced around avidly as Zeke followed the owner toward the display window. “A girl in a candy shop,” she answered Zeke’s inquiring gaze, smiling. Despite the looming situation with Ranson, Sylva figured she may as well enjoy while she could. Besides, a part of her just wanted to live a little. Okay, a lot. She’d always had a yen to live life to the fullest. She’d even given it her best shot. Yet, somehow she’d always fallen short, no matter how many times she’d picked herself up, dusted herself off. Yep, life on her Earth was out of kilter.

Zeke eyed the frothy pink frock that looked as if a breeze could carry it away. His Sylva would look divine wearing it. Subtly, he nodded to Bethanne and she placed it on a separate hook. “I believe this is the white lacy one that caught your fancy, Mr. Vintorr.” With a proud smile Bethanne held up the gossamer floating frock. “This is one of Victoria’s designs. I believe it would fit your wife perfectly, if I’m any judge.” Zeke grinned to himself at Bethanne’s pretend modesty. She had the best eye he knew for what fit a woman’s figure.

Moi’s comment mew-sings ~
Lindsay, everyone has beautifully expressed what's true about your heroines and your skillful brilliant writing.
One reason I find your heroines so appealing is because they represent their times in the sense that they overcome and live, not merely exist. And they are tough, physically and mentally, or they learn to be.
Thanks for sharing Ahhotpe. She's a wonderful anti-heroine! And she's so Egyptian. You must have lived during that time.
As women why shouldn't we write what we know... ourselves.
I have to agree with Linda. It's really tiresome when the focus of a story or a movie is solely on the man or men... which occurs all too often, imho.
Oh, big deal, who cares about fiction that constantly makes the male sex the center of the universe. Why isn't woman and man, as portrayed together, the center of their universe?

For the next part of the Never-Ending Story ~ RomanticSynonmous ~
Still stunned at the deep,. sexy voice and the words it spoke, Kallyn was even more shaken as the ground rumbled from the force of mighty hoofbeats, and the sky buzzed with a fleet of helicopters.
