WITH HER KISS, medieval erotic romance, today, based on real incident, from TOTALEBOUND.COM

Based on an actual tragedy in English history, WITH HER KISS is the 3rd in my Swords of Passion series and tells the tale of one woman who failed to curry favor with King John.

In fact, this incident aroused the barons so mightily that women's rights (or specifically heiresses', widows' and noblewomen's rights) were addressed in the Magna Carta.

This often overlooked fact is an intriguing one. The incident involved William de Braose's wife Maud and their eldest son, both of whom were imprisoned by John, shoved into a hole in the floor of a dungeon and starved to death. While historians debate where this occurred, they are agreed it did. The barons' outrage at John's treatment of Maud provided the impetus to forge an alliance among them. They forced their liege lord to agree to the document proclaiming women's rights as well as many others.

All three of my SWORDS OF PASSION medievals discuss an aspect of women's rights that John tried to ignore. Hope you will read all of them! AT HER SERVICE, Book 1, and FOR HER HONOUR, Book 2 are available on and on all vendors, Amazon and more!
I hope you enjoy WITH HER KISS.
Defying his king, Geoffrey St. Claire invades a dungeon to save the woman he loves from cruel death. This time, he vows, he will save her and make her love him—or die trying.
Countess Katherine Harleigh knew her refusal to become King John's lover courted his punishment. But she never thought he'd try to starve her. Cast into a dungeon—widowed, alone and disgraced—Kat fears no one can save her. Not even the one knight who always promised to love and protect her.
Geoffrey St. Claire serves his Sire as loyally as a sane man can. But when John imprisons the one woman Geoff has always adored, he risks his lands and his life to ride to her rescue. Yet, he knows she will never welcome his aid. She hates him too much for deserting her years ago. But he will not leave her this time.
Now, Geoff plans to save her from death and despair, nurse her back to health and then persuade her to love him as wholly as she once did. Seduction in her bath, her bed, her chamber is his only method and he prays he can restore her love for him before John appears with an army to take her from him once more…this time, forever.

It's always fun to read things based on an actual incident. Makes me wish I'd been there to see it all happen - as long as there were proper bathrooms!! I have my standards.

OH, Molly! Thank you!
I take no credit for the covers. All that praise goes to the house designers and I feel incredibly lucky to have such talent in my corner!

I know I am not alone.
