My Lady of the Whip by Venetia Green (Spotlight and GIVEAWAY) GFT ADULT title
My Lady of the Whip is an ADULT title
by Venetia Green
Be careful when you pick up a whip. Your fingers curl about that seductive handle, your wrist flexes its subtle weight and then… Yes, you wonder what would happen if you plied those innocent leather strips against another’s flesh. 1348. The Black Death is sweeping medieval London, social order is collapsing, and the virtuous Lady Elizabeth seizes a whip to defend her honor. But when death seems inevitable, Bess throws caution to the plague-ridden vapors … … to save the man she can never have – William de Montagu, the handsome, persuasive and soon-to-be-married Earl of Salisbury.
“You are inclined to dance, my lady?”
The words were a spike of shock to her core. She had known he was approaching, guessed he would address her, but it was all she could to school her reaction. She forced her gaze to shift from the dancers to the man beside her at a leisurely pace.
“You jest, my lord de Montagu,” she said coldly. “That is no dance. It is…” She hesitated.
“An orgy?” he supplied.
Her hand flew to her mouth.
“No. Of course—you are right, my lady,” de Montagu amended. “One could not possibly call it an orgy. Not yet.”
“Will you not do something about it then?” Bess demanded, finding her voice again.
Straight black brows rose. “Do something? What are you suggesting, Lady Bess, that I join the festivities?”
AUTHOR Bio and Links:
Venetia was spirited from misty England to the wild west of Australia as a child and is still unsure which world she belongs in. Perhaps that is why she escaped into the past...
When she grew up, Venetia spent 10 years studying literature and history before the need to write her own overwhelmed her – at which point she abandoned her PhD and dived headlong into historical fiction. Now she writes dark and sensuous romances set amongst the fjords of Viking Age Scandinavia and back-alleys of medieval London.
