Spotlight on Natasha Blackthorne's A Measured Risk

Friday, October 11, 2013

Good Moring Sexxy’s & Happy Friday! Today the blog will end with a bang…a book bang that is and I want to share some book love with you too. I truly adore Natasha’s work…her erotic historical romances are exciting and sexxy and…well I can go on & on, but I’ll let her tell you the rest.

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited to announce my re-release of A Measured Risk. This story has been expanded, deepened and fully re-edited.

I would like to share some teaser quotes with you:

“I want you to remove the rest of your garments and then I want you to lie on that crimson divan and display yourself for me.” (Lord Ruel to Lady Cranfield)


“You have the softest, silkiest skin, like dark, warm honey. And for the past days, I have had the most compelling mental image. Of you, bare naked, bent over that crimson divan, waiting for me to put my cock in you.” (Lord Ruel to Lady Cranfield)


“I know myself and I do not shrink from the truth of it. I am not what you would call a…sensual woman.” (Lady Cranfield to Lord Ruel)


“Here is how it shall be between us. My pleasure shall be yours. And if you kick over your traces or get too high in the instep with me, I shall punish you.” (Lord Ruel to Lady Cranfield)


“Very well,” she said, and dropped the plates. They fell to the floor and smashed. “It doesn’t matter anyway. Four more days and you will no longer have any say over anything I do.”

A MEASURED RISK features a shy, intellectual, strong-willed widow with real life curves (Rubenesque/BBW) and a protective, possessive Dominant, alpha male hero. This is a story of Dominance and submission with light BDSM, emotional healing, trust and love.

Book one in the Regency Risks Series

He is her most dangerous temptation and now he is demanding her submission. Dare she take the risk?

Young dowager countess, Lady Cranfield, is emotionally scarred by the traumatic accident that took her husband's life. She cannot forget how he was killed and breathed his last in the circle of her trembling arms.

Imprisoned by her lingering fear of horses and carriages, Lady Cranfield is fascinated by the brave, self-assured Earl of Ruel and longs to be closer to him. She believes he alone can teach her how to overcome her terror.

Seduced by the covert, come-hither glances from the shy Lady Cranfield, Ruel sensed she would be the sweetest, most submissive experience of a lifetime-if only he can gain her total and complete trust.

Lady Cranfield grew up emotionally neglected by her ducal parents and later betrayed by her charming, handsome husband. She has learned that she can trust no one and protects herself at all costs. However, she's desperate to regain her former life and now willing to risk almost anything-her reputation, even her virtue.

But Ruel wants something she never expected. He makes her a non-negotiable offer. His help in return for her complete sexual submission and total obedience for one month.

Dare she take the risk?

Reader Advisory: This is a BDSM romance. This book contains anal sex, spanking, light bondage, D/s themes and brief F/F touching.
