for humanity sealed by the searing memory of his mother burning at the stake. So when the wife of a wealthy landlord comes seeking his help, the beguiling Chloris Keavey unwittingly presents Lennox with his greatest opportunity for distraction…and retribution.
By failing to produce an heir, Chloris faces a terrible threat: being turned out by her heartless husband. Now, she vows to get with child, even if it means surrendering her body—and soul—to Lennox’s seductive magic. But with a witch hunt brewing, Lennox and Chloris are soon risking everything for their forbidden nights of ecstasy…and to protect the secret that could cost them their lives.
“Saskia Walker’s latest erotic romance series takes place in the eighteenth century and features a coven of Scottish witches. Her newest installment, The Libertine, follows Chloris Keavey, a woman who comes to coven leader Lennox Taskill for a remedy for her inability to conceive. Lennox’s attempts to help Chloris lead to strong feelings between the couple, so when witch hunter Tamhas Keavey wants to claim Chloris as his own, Lennox must do what he can to keep her safe. Intrigued by this unique premise, we asked the author about the lore behind the Taskill witches and were surprised to find that the stories were inspired by historical fact. Today Saskia Walker discusses how this series came about and what readers can expect next.” Read Saskia’s interview at Romantic Times.
