Cover Reveal for Royal Pains book 1, 2, and 3 by Nina Mason
Pains cover reveal for posting on Sept. 16
we are revealing the new covers for Nina Mason's Royal Pains, an erotic series
set in Scotland and England during the Restoration period (the latter half of
the 17th century, for those who don't know). Ms. Mason decided to put new,
sexier covers on the series for the launch of book three, THE DEVIL'S
MASQUERADE. All three new covers, the blurbs for the books, and the buy links
Royal Pains, Book One
DEVIL IN DUKE'S CLOTHING
York, a convent-raised foundling, knows the Duke of Dunwoody’s sexual tastes
are a shade or two darker than most, but marries him anyway—partly because she
has no other prospects and partly because, try as she might, she can’t seem to
stop fantasizing about her dashing rake of a guardian.
Armstrong, the duke, is a Roman Catholic whose extreme devotions as a child
warped his desires as a man. He’s also a slave to the times in which he
lives--and to his king. Everything he is, everything he holds dear, depends on
staying in Charles II’s good graces. Unfortunately, Maggie isn't the bride the
king selected for him. Now, to make amends, the duke must either whore his wife
or be reduced to a penniless and unprotected commoner at a time when Catholics
are persona non grata in Great Britain.
The tawdry tale of the Duke and Duchess of Dunwoody
Armstrong, the long-lost illegitimate daughter of the heir presumptive to the
throne, is bedeviled by her husband's limited definition of fidelity. After
observing him in a ménage à trois at the court of King Charles II, she
is determined to bring him around to her way of thinking— by any means
doesn’t mind being punished for his transgressions. Rather, he enjoys being
whipped, especially by his beloved bride. Unfortunately, her heart might not
belong to him alone. His younger brother, who he’d sent abroad to clear the way
for himself, is coming home sooner than expected, and Maggie’s feelings for
Hugh may not be as dead as her husband had hoped.
duke and duchess soon learn, to their peril, Hugh Armstrong is not the
honorable man they’d been led to believe. Insanely jealous of his brother’s
situation, Hugh will stop at nothing to strip Robert of all he holds
dear—including his life.
the real danger for Robert and Maggie is not the villainous Marquess, but the
growing friction betwixt Catholics and Protestants in Restoration Era Great
their love survive the trials that await them?
year is now 1685 and Maggie's father has just been crowned King of Great
Britain, but that doesn't mean trouble is over for the Duke and Duchess of
Dunwoody. Rather than cool the flames of hatred between Papists and
Protestants, the coronation of a Catholic monarch has only added accelerant to
the already raging blaze. Two-faced devils lurk in every corner of the royal
court, as do diseases with the power to kill and maim. When Robert falls prey
to the smallpox virus, it looks as though Maggie will lose the two people most
precious to her--her beloved husband and their only child--the son she bore
three months before after five years of heartbreaking miscarriages and stillbirths.
The one person in London who can help save her son demands a steep price in
exchange her services. Will Maggie trade Robert's hard-won fidelity to save her
only child...or offer the apothecary an even more scandalous alternative?
