About this author

I spent my youth studying various languages, reading voraciously, and playing the pianoforte. I confess that here ends the extent of my gentle breeding. I was a naughty child who was forever torturing her parents with countless adventures that they did not deem respectable. Confined to my room on many occasions due to these misadventures, I soon discovered the quill and its amazing power. I scribed endless stories that almost invariably surrounded the topic of love, for I felt an inane need to be rescued from a family that did not understand my lust for life. In my mind, King Arthur became my true love and I waited for the day when he would come riding upon his steed and invite me to sit at his round table, not as his queen, but as his knig ...more

I'm so excited that you're excited, lol. I was hoping to have had the Audible version out by now, but fell behind on finishing my latest book, which tossed Lady of Pleasure's audio recording on hold. I'm hoping to release Lady of Pleasure in Audible by mid-December. It could be sooner but the project has to be mastered and I prefer to give you a later date than a sooner one :) Plan for December 20th the latest. It's the first time with me going into the studio and so I'm trying to make sure it's everything it needs to be. Once I get the hang of it, I have no doubt, the rest of the School of Gallantry Book in audible(Night of Pleasure, Romancing Lady Stone, Master of Pleasure and the Duke of Andelot) will come out within a month or two of each other :) Sorry about the delay!!! I swear I'm working hard, lol.(less)

"I cried. The end of a series, and probably the most heartbreaking of them all. But I absolutely loved the ending, it was the climatic shift we were all hoping for (all wrapped in a bow). Thank you Delilah for all you do! "

“How much do you love me?"
She drew in a breath and let it out. "Too much."
"Too much is just enough for this man."
"And do you love me?" she whispered.
"I have always loved you. Always. You know that.”
Delilah Marvelle, Once Upon a Scandal

“Her unusual upbringing had made her worldly enough to understand that every female, no matter her genus and species, had the ability to physically coerce a male into full cooperation.

And yes, she knew just the male to coerce.”
Delilah Marvelle, Prelude to a Scandal

“Where there is a will to conquer a man, there is a way to conquer a man.”

“We had a lot in common. I loved him and he loved him.”
Shelley Winters

“His eyes darkened. He edged toward her. "And how am I a farce?"
"You told me in your own words the night we formally met that you play the role of a gentleman for a reason, and that it has nothing to do with respectability. Which leads me to conclude that you are hiding behind the illusion of perfection you create for the sole purpose of misleading others. Because there is no perfect life, my lord. Just as there is no perfect gentleman. Lie to yourself and to those who feast on your illusion, but do not lie to me.”
Delilah Marvelle, The Perfect Scandal

Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,
Whispering 'it will be happier'...”
Alfred Tennyson
