Studio Smexy™ Saturdays: Behind the Scenes with Delilah Marvelle + Giveaway (US/CA)

A note from Kati: Oh Delilah Marvelle. What is there to say about this Marvelleously amazing lady? Her books are unputdownable, her heroes are hawt, we want to trade places with her heroines and we've been chomping at the bit for her to write the rest of the SCHOOL OF GALLANTRY series. She's finally doing it!!! I am currently sitting at Delilah's table while Jenn is looking through the pictures from today. *eep* Anyway, I'm just sharing the outtakes with you that were posted on my Twitter feed along with Jenn's. Just look for the #studiosmexy hashtag if you go back in and want to look at the smexiness. The exclusive cover reveal will be coming soon along with the live action book trailer :)

Meet Delilah:
Delilah Marvelle spent her youth studying various languages, reading voraciously and playing the pianoforte. She confesses that here ends the extent of her gentle breeding. She was a naughty child who was forever torturing her parents with countless adventures that they did not deem respectable. Confined to her room on many occasions due to these misadventures, she discovered the quill and its amazing power. Soon, to the dismay of her parents, she rather enjoyed being confined to her room. She is a two time Golden Heart finalist and winner of RT's Best Sensual Historical Romance of the Year. You can visit her at her website at or her blog, which explores the naughtier side of history, at

A note from Jenn:

My lovelies.

Have I mentioned how much I adore Delilah Marvelle? No? Are you SURE? Because I do. So very much. Of course. If you haven't read any of her books GO. NOW. We'll wait.

Better? Of course you are!!

Earlier this year Kati and I had a conversation over twitter and went something like this:

@RomancingRakes: so @JennLeBlanc, if you could shoot anyone's cover, who would it be?
@JennLeBlanc: oh goodness, that's easy it would be @DelilahMarvelle.

That's pretty much how it went down.
Then at RomCon this summer I invited Delilah to my studio for a shoot, just thinking hey! This will be fun. OH BOY HOWDY was it ever. She came, she saw, she fell in love, she bought a cover for the GALLANTRY series and I SWOONED.

Then...this summer she bought another one. THEN... she said HEY! Jenn, come to Portland, we'll shoot the third GALLANTRY cover and have a good time. DOUBLE SWOON.

SO here I am, writing this in Portland, at Delilah's kitchen table, while she cooks me dinner after spending the day shooting hot dudes for her books.


Sneak peek? YES. How about some supre fab outtakes shot by the über sweet Kati herself. You know you want them.

I know you want them.


And stay tuned. EXCLUSIVELY on StudioSmexy Saturdays we will be revealing ALL THREE GALLANTRY COVERS to the world!!



Checking the lighting and such. Oh hai Delilah

Still debating as to whether the photo on the left could be on an inspirational romance cover...

Miz Marvelleous fixing hair and taking clothes off men. Typical. 
Oh hello Ender *squee* (Can't wait for Jenn to finish writing Twitchy cause I heart the name of her character Ender. Yup. He shares the same name with Model Ender.)

Real pleasure can't be taken. It must be given...

Granddaughter of a renowned courtesan, Maybelle de Maitenon has no interest in her grandmother's school in London where gentlemen receive instruction--in the art of seduction. Her only desire in life is to remain independent, free from men and the shackles of marriage. But when Maybelle lays eyes on the Duke of Rutherford, at a soirée, and hears of his scandalous reputation, she decides he's the perfect person for her to have a tryst with no strings attached.

After his very public dalliance with the strikingly beautiful and sensual Maybelle, his mother insists he marry her. But much to the Duke's surprise, Maybelle scoffs at his proposal. Never has he encountered such a brazen--and maddeningly irresistible--woman. But when Maybelle's grandmother falls ill, forcing Maybelle to take over the operation of her school, Edmund devises a plan to make her his. He enrolls in the school, where no one other than Maybelle must give him expert lessons in carnal pleasure. . .ch he's willing to risk -- not only to bed her, but to prove his worth...

Desperate times lead to desperate pleasures...

It's been months since Lady Charlotte Chartwell's philandering husband met his untimely end at the hands of an angry mistress. But as miserable as he made Charlotte in life, his death proves to be an even harsher blow. For not a farthing of his fortune or estate have passed on to her, and as a ruined widow, she is destitute, penniless, and utterly without hope.

Then, as Charlotte is considering the worst, a man steps into her carriage. His intentions are quite indecent at first, but the more he learns about her, the more an unfamiliar -- an undesirable -- emotion creeps over him. Could it be compassion? Never! For this is Alexander Baxendale, third Earl of Hawksford. He is known throughout the ton as the Lord of Pleasure, dedicated to passion and sensual gratification. Yet never in all his exploits has he met a woman who could intrigue him as Charlotte does. Can this mysterious beauty make him hang up his title and see to her pleasure alone?
