Book 1

Caerwin and the Roman Dog
An Erotic Historical Romance Set in 47 AD Britannia
By Lizzie Ashworth


Caerwin, a young Cornovii princess, watches from the rocky battlements of her tribe’s hillfort as Rome’s legions approach. Surely the valiant warriors of her tribe will fend off this swarm of foreign invaders. Disbelief slowly changes to horror as Romans overrun her home.

Captured and held in Roman camp, Caerwin faces Legate Marcellus Antistius who makes it clear she will submit to his demands. In spite of her resistance, he forces her pleasure. She begs to die.

Caught between his increasing infatuation with this Briton princess and the demands of his military command, Marcellus must come to terms with his past.

A fiery novel of domination and submission, this historical romance follows Caerwin as she refuses to accept her new reality. Life as she knew it is over. Forever. In its place stands a man she can never love.

Set in the year 47 AD as four legions of the Roman army invade Britannia and blaze a path of death and destruction, this novel portrays the plight of native Celts who must yield their lands and possessions to become vassals of Rome—or fight to the death.

Book 2

Caerwin & Marculles

Caerwinll cover.jpe

Caerwin has lost her family, her home, and her freedom. Her one last hope? Escape. Across the River Severn and into the western hills, she finds familiar language, the sounds of a village stirring in the morning, dogs barking, the smell of lamb stew. While it lasts.

After two short months, he finds her again. Marcellus, the man who wants her heart. He and the Roman army march forward with swords flashing, butchering her countrymen and her only surviving friend Seisyll. Once again, she finds herself at his mercy.

Refusing to eat or even to wash the blood from her hands, Caerwin only wants to die. He won’t let her. Lash in hand, he forces her compliance.

But her life is destined for even greater change. At the end of his term as legion commander, Marcellus returns to Rome. He’s taking her with him even if she refuses to leave her beloved Britannia. A journey fraught with high seas, banditry, and the blighted company of a woman she despises brings Caerwin to the heart of the Roman Empire.

To the arms of a man she refuses to love.

A story of breathtaking scope, Caerwin & Marcellus takes the reader from the heart of Britannia and across Gaul to the thriving metropolis of Rome. Set in 50 AD, their struggle to come to terms with each other’s needs and expectations exposes the underbelly of Rome’s legal system, its dependence on slavery, and sexual secrets from Marcellus’ past. Can young Caerwin rise to the challenge of womanhood?

Lizzie Ashworth has been through career, marriage, kids, and even ran her own cafe, but writing has always been her secret love. Hidden away on a remote woodland hilltop in the Arkansas Ozarks, she accepts advice from her hound dog Weezie and her black cat Esmeralda. She has authored seven novels and several short stories which explore the intimate nuances of human relationships.

Liz writes erotic romance because her mind just naturally runs to the gutter. Also, it’s way past time to celebrate women’s sexual freedom and the evolution of our culture to finally bring sex out of the closet. What she find most exciting about this minute in the history of literature is that through indie publishing, the author can directly connect with her readers.

She enjoys cooking, gardening, and vacations at the Pacific coast. Sunrise and sunset provide her favorite moments, the magical twilight between two worlds when anything seems possible. Most of all, she loves snuggling up with a good book.

Life was simple before I met Cobra, well, simple to some extent. I had a nine
to five job, a mom that I visited in the hospice, a best friend who I still
adore and more importantly, no kids.
I couldn’t wait to meet our little one. Boy or girl, we weren’t fussed, but we
kept it a surprise. But when the baby came along, I thought my life was
perfect. I couldn’t have wanted anything more. Three days after the birth, I
started feeling shitty, I mean, we all get them days right? But this…this was
something far more serious. I was out of control, borderline bipolar. What the
fuck was wrong with me? Can anyone help me?

How can I help her? I can’t control her. My soothing words go unheard in her
craze for….whatever it is she’s seeking. I have no idea what’s happened to my
sweet Alexis. What has made her so fucking crazy? It’s unbearable, seeing her
suffering but having no idea why. I don’t even think she knows why. Someone has
to help my Old Lady…because I don’t know where this will lead to. How can our
relationship survive after this? How can I trust her with our baby when she can
barely look after herself. Please, God, anyone, help us.

Lucii is your typical
British girl, hates the sun and hibernates when summer arrives! She lives at
home with her 3 year old daughter, where they spend the day watching Frozen and

Fifty shade phenomenon, she went onto social media to seek other authors
writing the same or similar genres. She entered a world she didn’t know existed
and went on to open a successful blog.
Inspiring dreams took a back
burner while she learned the book community and met a bunch of amazing authors
and readers alike.

start writing, hoping against hope that her friends and fellow readers will
like what she brings to the table.

RELEASE BLITZ: Snare by Marata Eros

Snare BannerSnare_2000

Title: Snare

Author: Marata Eros

Genre: MC Romance

Release Date: May 5, 2016


Forbidden Love

Some women are untouchable. Like a stepsister who’s alive because of your sacrifice.
Snare is part of the Road Kill MC, and as sergeant-at-arms, he takes his role as protector seriously.
He always has.
Snare doesn’t discuss the scar that almost took his eye, or the ultimate protection it provided for the only woman he’s ever loved.
The sweet butts provide the distraction he needs, and the emotional disconnect he craves.
Snare is married to the club. He doesn’t need a woman who disappears without a trace.


Sarah tries not to think of Snare. It was one night. And he paid for it—they both did.
The nightmares don’t even interrupt her dreams. Much.
Except for the secret she keeps of the child they had together? Life couldn’t be more perfect.
Sarah knows that Snare isn’t the type of man to toy with—or lie to. But when her abuser took things too far, Sarah couldn’t allow Snare to protect her any longer, she fled and hasn’t seen her stepbrother since.
The price for their love was more than fists and rage.
But flesh and blood.
Can Sarah hide the truth from the one man who protected her with his own life? Will Snare deny his true feelings because of scars that run more than skin deep?

BLOG TOUR: Malakai (Stone Brothers Texas Heat Series) by: Cree Nations

Cree banner


Malakai by Cree Nations

Malakai has a bit of everything in one awesome book! There are US Marshalls, bikers, and crooked lawmen! This book and the rest of the series will grab you by the seat of the pants and take you for one hell of a ride!

‪#‎FREE on KU

Black white blurb

Malakai left behind his home, his family, and his girl – Liberty.
Now he’s coming home and he’s not that young seventeen year old, he’s bigger, meaner, and a legally trained killer.

Liberty Rawlins was sixteen years old when Malakai left her angry and with an aching heart. It didn’t matter she knew he wasn’t to blame the end result was the same – she was alone. Now he’s coming home. Home to more tragedy than he knows. How will she tell him? Will he still want her? Things are not the same – it’s been five years.


Home. He was going home. Lieutenant Malakai Stone was on his way home, this time for good. Liberty lived on Blue Holly Farm, and they’d talked about settling down there and raising a family. She and Emma – her best friend – owned and operated an Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation and he wanted to finish Vet school and work with them.

Zach’s words kept running through his mind, you need to come home Kai. It’s Mom, she’s had another heart attack and it doesn’t look good. He’d grabbed his go bag and called his friend and told him he was going to Texas. “Thought you wanted in on this op?” Jackson asked him. “We’re wheels up in an hour.”

“It’s my Mom. She’s had another heart attack. I’m going home.” His voice broke on those words and he’d barely heard Jack tell him to go. He’d managed to grab a ride out with one of the choppers, and then luck was in his favor and he was able to get a flight from Virginia to Dallas. Jackson had no family, except his father, so work was all he did – and he often had a difficult time grasping why everyone wasn’t consumed with work like he was.

Once they were on the ground and the plane taxied up to the dock and he grabbed his bag from the overhead and waited his turn to exit the plane. Since 9/11 the security was tighter and no one was allowed to meet the planes at the gates so he took off at a run and made his way up the crowded hall, pulling his cell phone out of his pocket. Before he could dial he heard a familiar voice calling out to him. He looked up and saw Caleb, one of his brothers, and he felt even more panic set in seeing the expression on his face. Close up he saw how red his brother’s eyes were and he sucked in a breath, “Is she?” He couldn’t even get the rest of his fear out.




I like to think I’m a tart and tangy blend of Texan and I speak fluent redneckaneze. I’ve lived in Texas all my life, except for a brief stint in Columbus, Georgia. I was born and raised in a small East Texas town and moved with my parents to Houston – where I graduated High School – I went to college – got married and had two sons (not specifically in that order). My sons are now grown and have given me six grandchildren.

I currently live in a small house with my Great Pyrenees Matilda and my cat Sadie Milo. After raising my sons I now have the time to follow my dream of writing and being a published author. My debut book, Texas Heat a Stone Brothers Series-Malakai, was published in March, and I am currently writing the second book in the series – Tucker.

My first love is poetry and I have a collection of poems that can be found at I love the written word and I am an avid reader.

You can find me staring out the window with my fingers busily tapping on the keys of my laptop – hoping to entertain you with my books.
