Raven McAllan is stirring up some romance ... again!!


Frequent flyer, Raven McAllan is back on SWAK today, and just as lovely as ever!!
Sadly, I must admit that I’ve failed her miserably. Her post was scheduled to go live yesterday, but like the scatterbrain I’ve been known to be, I thought I could put in a little “work” time on the same day as my oldest daughter’s senior PROM!!! NOT!!
Needless to say, although I may be a day late with Raven’s pimpage, this author is always top-notch in our hearts here on Sealed with a Kiss!!

It’s all yours. Raven…take it away…

I love popping in here, the cakes and coffee are excellent…and I feel so at home…
And let's face it, when you're as hyper as I am today, it's great to visit friends. I'm all dancing all excited because Cecilia's Claim is published. This is book two in a Regency Series I'm writing with Lee Brazil. Each book is stand alone, although of course we'd love you to read them all…


Everyone agreed the Brigstock family was unconventional. Just how unconventional could be somewhat of a shock...
About Cecilia…
She may have turned her men down once, but will she have the resolve to do it again?
Cecy's willpower is never strong when she's around Caleb or Philippe, and now she needs them to keep her safe. They intend to stick close to her, so surely a little dalliance is acceptable? The problem is a little is not enough for any of them, but can they all agree just on what form the 'more' should take?

 Here's a tease:

With another sigh, she left the room and made her way to her bedchamber. She looked at the double-ended glove mender and the darning mushroom Randall had given to her with a quiet, "Perhaps these will stand you in good stead until I find the perfect jade for you." They were adequate as a stand-in for a firm cock, but as she well knew, once a cock had been enjoyed, nothing else was ever as good. With a determination she didn't realize she had, she turned away from her sewing drawer, undressed and got into bed. She may be unconventional and a rebel, but she had to curb her enthusiasm. Perhaps it was as well she had a lot that occupied her mind other than the joy of satisfying her carnal needs?
 To dream of a man with eyes so dark they were the color of a midnight sky, and feel him leaning over her, whispering her name, stroking her brow and holding her. Someone—something—else also, so nebulous that try as she might strive to discover what held her in thrall, she couldn't.

She is not what you'd expect from a Regency miss… But then I don't think I could write about simpering debutantes with no spine, or dull as dishwater personalities. I like strong willed strong minded women who stand up to their partners, and make them work for their HEA. I think Cecy fits the bill perfectly, and I hope you do as well…


Nosy links…

Raven lives in Scotland, along with her husband and their two cats—their children having flown the nest—surrounded by beautiful scenery, which inspires a lot of the settings in her books.
She is used to sharing her life with the occasional deer, red squirrel, and lost tourist, to say nothing of the scourge of Scotland—the midge.
A lover of reading, she appreciates the history inside a book, and the chance to peek into the lives of those from years ago. Raven admits that she enjoys the research for her books almost as much as the writing; so much so, that sometimes she realizes she's strayed way past the information she needs to know, and not a paragraph has been added to her WIP.
Her lovely long-suffering husband is learning to love the dust bunnies, work the Aga, and be on stand-by with a glass of wine.
