Some Sweet Nerd Love with Etta Stark

I have the honor of having Ms. Etta Stark on my blog today. I got to read a sneak preview of her latest book Lord Westbrook's Muse before it was even published (that makes me feel sort of special).

If you have not read a book by Etta Stark I recommend that you rectify that situation for yourself. She has this sweet and funny way of telling a story that makes you fall in love with every single character in her book. 

You can read Lord Westbrook's Muse even if you have not read Lady Westbrook's Discovery which is a story that happens before this one- although they are not really a series because they are each standalone stories. (Why wouldn't you want to read both though?)

I titled this post "Sweet Nerd Love" because Lord Robert Westbrook, the hero of this story, is really a socially awkward, nerdy dude. And I love him! Etta somehow made this guy who is painfully lacking in social skills with his peers into this commanding sexy hero that becomes Cass' savior. I think that is the sign of a talented writer. She gives us a flawed human being, but still manages to make him likeable and sexy- it's just very real. I could gush on and on, but she brought us a hot excerpt, so let's get to it!

Hi Casey! Thanks for having me on your blog today. I’m really excited to talk about my new book Lord Westbrook’s Muse here because I know you appreciate a bit of spanky Victorian romance. Your Ravenswood Manor books are the sexiest and spankiest after all. Aren’t we due another one of them soon? I want to know Samuel and Clara’s story.
Back to Lord Westbrook’s Muse which is a love story between a rather cantankerous Lord of the Manor and a beautiful free-spirited woman called Cass with a mysterious past.
Defying all the rules of polite society, the pair of them has dived into a rather passionate affair – which began when Lord Westbrook gave Cass a bare-bottomed spanking for earlier bad behaviour and swiftly developed into something more carnal. The snippet below takes place the day after they have made love for the first time. They are meeting in secret at midnight in an abandoned cottage in Lord Westbrook’s grounds.

Lord Westbrook may have just thoroughly ravished Cass but he’s still being scrupulously polite about things. He’s quite the formal English gentleman, really.

Come,” he said, leading her through to the bedroom.
She followed willingly enough. He was alert to any sign of resistance. He wanted to dominate her, true, but he wanted her to want him too.
Lie on the bed,” he instructed.
She did as she was bid, reclining sumptuously on the bed; her beautiful body on full display. He did not take his eyes from her as he began to undress himself. He removed his jacket, waistcoat and shirt then bent down to remove his boots. He left his trousers on for now despite the discomfort of his rigid member straining against the fabric.
She had not reached a climax when he had taken her the previous day and while he had been happy enough to use his hand to ensure that she achieved full satisfaction, he was determined that tonight she would orgasm while he was inside of her.
With this in mind, he lowered his head to her sex and softly ran his tongue across her swollen slit. Cass gave a squeak of surprise but made no attempt to stop him. Robert pushed his tongue inside. He had no previous experience of pleasuring a woman in this way. Although he had read about the practice in a number of books he owned – books that had been purchased discreetly in plain brown wrappings.
He gauged his effectiveness by noting Cass’s reactions as he licked and sucked her exquisite womanhood, giving especial attention to the tiny bud of her clitoris. Cass’s responses indicated that what he was doing was gratifyingly effective. Her little moans and gasps of pleasure were quite the most erotic thing that he could imagine. He wanted to manage it so that he could bring her close to the point of orgasm without actually reaching it. He wanted that to happen once he entered her.
The thought of it was almost too much for him to bear. He did not want to unman himself before he had even started. He removed his mouth and Cass gave a little whimper which was followed by a groan of pleasure once he had unbuttoned his trousers and thrust his manhood inside her.
He pounded into her, building up a steady rhythm. He felt the walls of her sex constrict around his member as she climaxed. She cried out in pleasure and then her head lolled to one side as she experienced her petite mort. He continued his thrusts until he soon reached a climax of his own. He collapsed, spent, on top of her and then rolled off. He embraced her naked body and buried his face in her long auburn hair.
That was extraordinary,” Cass said. “Even better than yesterday. I never imagined that it would be like this. Thank you.”
I am gratified that you enjoyed it,” Robert replied.

Lord Westbrook’s Muse is Available from:

Lord Robert Westbrook’s life of responsibility and social obligations is turned on its head when he meets Cass, a beautiful and idiosyncratic woman at his mother’s garden party. Cass is a staunch supporter of women’s rights as well as an advocate of dress reform, rejecting the restrictive fashions of the nineteenth century. 

In fact, Cass’s rebellion isn’t limited to her dress sense. She is also determined to experience the excitement and passion of a sexual liaison. Lord Westbrook, she has decided, is the very man she wants to seduce her. Meanwhile Lord Westbrook has determined that Cass requires some stern discipline.

The couple’s passionate and fiery romance breaks every rule of Victorian decency and kindles a love that neither Cass nor Robert were prepared for. However, when Cass’s secret past finally catches up with her, it seems that the couple’s happiness might be doomed forever.


  1. Thank you for having me! You say such lovely things.

  2. Oh yum! I am so glad this is on my kindle and wish the heck it could be a couple of weeks from now so I would be free to read again. It looks so good.
