AUSSIE MONTH with Alysha Ellis
Describe yourself in one word:
What is your background with regard to writing?
I always wanted to write and put it off far too long, then I discovered Linda Howard and that was it. I wanted to write Romance!
Tell us about Her Lord’s Table and what inspired this story:
My latest release is a historical novella, Her Lord’s Table. I love writing steamy historical stories. This one was inspired by some ideas we tossed around on the Australian Erotic Writers Facebook group.
What are you reading right now?
I’m on a bit of a Loretta Chase binge at the moment. And Suzanne Brockmann.
Number one thing to do on your bucket list?
Travel more. I especially want to go to Petra in Jordan.
Best thing about being an Aussie?
We are a quite tolerant and peaceful society. We aren’t perfect, but we keep on trying and that’s a good thing.
What you want readers to know about the romance genre?
The romance genre matters, because relationships and family matters.
What have you got in store for your readers in 2015?
I have a romantic suspense, Tangled Web, that should be finished with in a month or two. This one is really close to my heart.
What were your big achievements of 2014?
I had three stories at once in Amazon’s top 50 Short Romance section. Claiming the Cowboys reached Best Seller Status and Staff Pick at All Romance eBooks and the anthology it is in, Lasso Lovin’ was nominated as Long and Short Reviews Erotic Book of the Month for December.
Her Lord’s Table
Gently-bred Susan arrives in 18th century London starving, penniless and desperate to find a job. When a chance-met acquaintance offers to help, Susan happily accepts a position as housekeeper in the home of Lord Winslade.
But the position is not what she expects it to be. She is greeted by a grim manservant, who locks her in a room and orders her to wear the scandalous costume she finds there.
She is forced to attend an erotic banquet of carnal and epicurean delights, presided over by the darkly sinister Lord Winslade.
Susan’s expectations of domestic service shatter as she is seduced into fulfilling appetites of an entirely different order.
