Sensationalist spin? No — Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all. Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.

Nathan began to write a suicide letter during the first semester of a shaky college career. Instead of using his own voice, he wrote from the perspective of a fictional character, Xander Stryker. Finding a strength in the writing process and motivation from his professors, Nathan overcame his suicidal tendencies and, with a new outlook and the right input, he was able to transform that dark story into the first novel of the Crimson Shadow series. Now living in Honeoye, New York with his wife and two incredibly demanding, out-of-control demon-cats, Nathan thrives on a steady diet of potentially lethal doses of caffeine and bacon.

Episode 052 - Separating the Art from the Artist
Want to be on this podcast? He agrees, with one catch: move in with him, and tarnish her reputation, letting society think the worst of them both. Well, he had friends, and in this Regency romance they all secretly gather at a brothel to explore their carnal desires. No one is more accomplished at this than Viscount Rohan, except when it comes to Elinor Harriman, who seems immune to his seduction. Duke of Sin , by Elizabeth Hoyt Sinfully attractive but dangerously unscrupulous, Valentine Napier, the Duke of Montgomery, has returned from exile to seek vengeance.
But he meets Bridget Crumb, his new housekeeper, and finds he has a goal in mind. Blame it on the Duke , by Lenora Bell Nicolas, Lord Hatherly, does not want to marry—especially because madness runs in his family, and will inevitably come for him. Alice Tombs feels the same way, having pushed away three suitors previously in her attempts to delay marriage.
Except that the summer nights prove sensual, and what is fake and what is real become difficult to distinguish. Six Impossible Things , by Elizabeth Hoyt Lord Rimsell is the opposite of a rake: strong, dependable, and honorable, he can be taken for his word. Which is why when he is caught after a moment of temptation with Rosalie Stratton, his course is clear: he must marry her, to protect their reputations.
So when a difficult situation arises and she has to go to him for help, she is angry and ashamed. Engaged to a lovely—albeit boring—man, she has the rest of her life planned out. But until the wedding takes place, she decides to pursue the parts of life she has ignored—for research purposes, of course. Enter scoundrel Cross, gaming hall owner and sexual conquest. But can Philippa keep her attraction to Cross purely scientific? Now they are searching for two people, but conspiracy, and attraction, threaten to undo everything they are working for.
He got his vengeance against the man who gave the order, but it only made him hungry for more. But revenge is a dish no longer served cold when passion ignites between them. The Pleasures of Passion , by Sabrina Jeffries Niall Lindsay has killed a man, which means he has to flee for his life. He expects the woman he loves, Brilliana, to come with him, but she does not. When the tarnished Earl returns to society on a mission for the government, he is forced to reunite with his former love, whom he now hates.
A Duke of Her Own , by Eloisa James A rake must marry to take responsibility for his illegitimate children, fathered over his years of being irresponsible with women. Except that Lisette, the daughter of a different duke, engaged to another man…is the one who tempts him most. With his scarred face and dangerous reputation, he is the perfect protector…but it will take a lot to get him to find the heart needed to truly care for her. She is won or, rather, purchased by Lord Saxton, a man who wears a mask and cloak to hide the results of a terrible fire.
And yet, just as she starts to fall for him, Christopher Seton appears once more.
