I'm contracted for the original five books, and the overlying story arc that's been running through them will end at book five - however, I do have two other story lines I'm considering playing with. Plus a couple of heroes and heroines who I'd love to give their own HEA, so keep an eye out for more news!

Hi Aly,

Thanks - so glad you're enjoying them! At the moment, I'm working on... a lot of things. I'm a very polygamous writer, which I find helps to keep me fresh, and I tend to have about six projects on the go at one time.

At the moment, I have a sexy NA that is my homage to Paul Walker, from Fast and the Furious, that I need to polish for my agent; I have this paranormal/steampunky YA I'm almost finished with; a dystopian/paranormal which is a little bit Mad Max, a little bit werewolf-y; a contemporary paranormal set in New Orleans which has been brewing for about seven years and is super-super-sexy; a Victorian-era paranormal romance featuring sorcerers and three super-sexy brothers who are cursed; and I'm mapping out the next London Steampunk arc, though I'm deliberately taking a couple of months away from doing more with that, to keep me fresh. Cheers!(less)

“I am tempted to incapacitate him with the hemlock and then castrate him.”
Lena paled. “I don’t think that would be very wise,” she said. “And the only knife we own is what I use for the cooking. You’re not using that.”
“I was planning on using a spoon,” Honoria replied.”
Bec McMaster, Kiss of Steel

“You're staring."

"Can't 'elp meself, he replied. You were made to be stared at.”
Bec McMaster, Kiss of Steel

“Easy, luv. Don't stir the devil, or you'll 'ave to pay the consequences."

"I'm not sure I have any coin on me," she said leaning closer and kissing the stubbled roughness of his jaw. "Do you think he would accept my favors instead?" A sultry whisper in his ear.

Blade groaned, "Bloody 'ell, Honor. Don't tease a man so."

"But it's so very exciting.”
Bec McMaster, Kiss of Steel

“If you can repress for a moment your spinster-like longing to meddle in my affairs,’ said Lymond cuttingly, from the door, ‘I am waiting to go.”
Dorothy Dunnett, Pawn in Frankincense

“He’d heard of this woman. The Dame de Doubtance, they called her: a madwoman and a caster of horoscopes. Gaultier gave her house-room and men and women came to her from all the known world and had their futures foretold—if she felt like it. She had given some help once to Lymond, on her own severe terms, because of a distant link, it was said, with his family. Plainly, a crazy old harridan. But if she was going to tell Lymond he ought to find a nice girl and marry her, Jerott wanted very much to be there.”
Dorothy Dunnett, Pawn in Frankincense

“Then Lymond’s voice, the chill gone, said, ‘Don’t be an ass, Jerott? You know I can’t do without you.’ It was an obvious answer. But it was also something Jerott had never had from Lymond before: an apology and an appeal both at once.”
Dorothy Dunnett, Pawn in Frankincense

“Philippa’s letter, from an afflicted conscience, was not very much longer. … if I don’t look for him, no one else will. You know I’m sorry. But I couldn’t leave that little thing to wither away by itself Don’t be sad. We’re all going to come back. And you can teach him Two Legs and I Wot a Tree, and save him the top of the milk for his blackberry pie. He’ll never know, if we’re quick, that nobody wanted him.… Which had, Kate considered as she scrubbed off her tears, a ring of unlikely confidence about it, as well as rather a shaky understanding of the diet of one-year-old babies.”
Dorothy Dunnett, Pawn in Frankincense

“It doesn’t do my self-esteem much good though, does it?’

‘Your self-esteem has had a lifetime of steady attention,’ said Philippa abstractedly.”
Dorothy Dunnett, Checkmate
