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

Hello my dearest Niki!
Congrats on winning The Duke of Andelot and I'm so thrilled you're now hunting down my other books! Yay! And no, you didn't spoil the other books in the series for yourself, lol. The Duke of Andelot was written to come full circle. It basically starts 30 years before the entire series starts, and therefore can technically be read before the series or after, so you're golden ^_^ Thanks for saying hi!!!
Much love,
Delilah(less)

Dear Mr. Steers (the director and writer to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies),

The movie, as Mr. Darcy would say, was "tolerable...but not enough to tempt me." Note: I respect your audience enough not to give spoilers.

I waited months to see this movie. MONTHS. It's all I ever talked about to my readers and to my family. Given it was taken directly from Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice with the... Read more of this blog post »

A nice glimpse into the past. I love reading memoirs written within the era I write in because it gives a real flavor most historians miss. Nothing writes history better than the people who lived it.

The Christmas Wager by Delilah Marvelle

“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.”
Delilah Marvelle, Mistress of Pleasure

“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
