The last two M/F erotic romances

The last two hetero erotic tales I had published at Amber Quill were a historical and a fantasy. Both genres are a notch off my regular style but I am an avid reader of both and felt competent to write in them, as well.

Miss Bea and the Blacksmith came about because someone made a disparaging remark about a blacksmith being an unlikely hero in one of my yahoo groups. If you know me at all, you realize that something like that smacks me in the chops as an outright dare.  A blacksmith can't be sexy and handsome and totally cool? Betcha he can! So I st down and opened the gates to that "otherwhere" that is residence to all the characters whose story has not yet been told. Out came Miss Bea and then Angus. I really enjoyed telling their story!

Here is the bulirb and the cover.
Bea McIntyre fell for an old scheme and ended up the mistress—or actually, the sex slave—of a
dissolute rancher named Murdock. Escaping in the middle of the night with only a few small treasures, she has no real plan except to get away.
When her mare bruises a hoof, Bea winds up at the blacksmith shop of Angus O’Toole. All she can offer him for his help is herself, but he seems to be satisfied with that bargain.
When Murdock sends his hired guns after her, things get dicey. But Bea is no hothouse flower. Between her and Angus, they heat up the days and nights, yet will they also triumph over the black hats?

The Farm Girl's Dragon owes some inspiration to tales by a couple of semi-contemporary fantasy authors, Elizabeth Moon and the late Anne McCaffery, both of whom I have greatly enjoyed. Several of us were working on a PAX collection about dragon shifters. My initial idea was not working so I slept on it and lo and behold, here comes Yerna, a farm girl who wants to be a knight, and a somewhat unlikely younger-son prince who is the scion of an ancient family of dragon shifters where none have used the power for several generations. Again I had a great time writing their tale!

So here is it's blurb and cover.
Yerna Yatskievych left her humble beginnings on a poor farm to become one of the few female knights in Draconia. As a guard for the kingdom’s handsome younger prince, Yerna finds her role both wonderful and challenging. Of course, the prince is far above her reach, but a girl has to dream sometimes.
For Hazwell the Disposable, the trappings and perks of royalty hold little appeal. He wonders what will become of him when his older brother, Crown Prince Maximilian, becomes king. Now, with Max away, a few duties fall to Hazwell, revealing a life of which he will never have more than a tempting taste. But things start to go wrong when his young guard’s hesitant request to be relieved of a problem starts a chain of events with incinerating consequences. Then treachery and mischance bring about huge changes.
With this courageous young female knight at his side, Hazwell dares to reach and strive farther than he had ever dreamed, even to claiming an ancient family power and rising to incredible heights.
