More About the Author
She writes in many of the sub-genres in romance including contemporary, historical Western, Regency, Medieval, paranormal, bdsm, gay, and sci-fi. Her stories tend to lean toward the sensual to erotic side, and a number of them involve consensual spanking elements. But even those are about characters who learn to love and respect each other in all ways.
She is happily married to a man who puts up with her love of writing and allows her to be as independent as she needs to be. Of course, she can't imagine her life without him, either. She has found her personal happily-ever-after.

The author takes her readers on an up and down ride of emotions with the three characters and the past wounds they have to overcome so they can have a life together. If you enjoy a book that lets you laugh and cry with the characters, you will love Their Lady Gloriana. Fast-moving and a happy ending...what a great read!I have never read anything by this author before, but I will certainly read more.
Thomas Lancaster is a widower who has recently received Middlemound Castle from King Edward for services rendered during the Crusades. He is a widower with a young son and, having lost his first wife to childbirth, he is unwilling to consider that path again.
Lady Gloriana Stewart was badly abused during her first marriage. She isn't looking forward to re-marrying, but she has people to protect and disobeying the king is not an option. Her wish is to have a little bit of happiness and she sees one way to gain that is by having a baby.
Complicating matters is Rowan Montgomery - a man who is her new husband's second in command, his friend.....and his lover. Matters get tangled between the threesome, but will they work out?
Their Lady Gloriana was an...interesting read overall.
The development of the relationship between Gloriana Stewart, Thomas Lancaster, and Sir Rowan Atkinson was well developed. How the characters interacted, the give and take, their history (old and new) kept me reading.
Having said that, I did have a couple issues with the story. I would have liked to see more of a historical backdrop to the story. Considering the time frame (13th Century England) and considering the type of relationship involved, what I would have liked to see is more of the general attitude (pro and con) towards this relationship for the time.
Considering the effort that went towards Thomas's reclaiming his son, I would have also liked to see more of the son make an appearance in the storyline.Read more ›
Their Lady Gloriana
By Starla Kaye
Middlemound Castle, England, June 1272
"Riders come, my lady! Two of them," a guard called down from the parapet to Gloriana where she stood in the gardens. "They bear the King`s banner."
She raised her head toward the guard and felt chills spiraling up her spine. News. Bad news. She sensed it to her soul. "Allow..." She had to clear her throat before she could finish. "Allow them entry."
It always angers me how women were treated in the past. Lady Gloriana was a perfect example--her husband had been extremely abusive of her in every way, so much so that everybody who lived in the castle knew it and had grown to hate her husband as much as Gloriana.
She had taken over as chatelaine while her husband had traveled to war. Now Sir Gerald stood by her, promising her that he would protect her but knowing, perhaps he could not? Still he would try...
Lady Gloriana had felt it was bad news when the soldiers came. Indeed they were there to tell her that her husband had been killed in battle. I just know that she would have been rejoicing; however, before she had a chance to even comment, she was told that the King had decreed she would marry Lord Rowan Montrose, who was to take over all of Lord Middlemound's men and properties.
Apparently the King had the right to decree a marriage for Gloriana...NOT something to make her happy! Indeed!
In fact, Lady Gloriana was very much afraid. No matter that Sir Gerald had sworn allegiance to her as a father would. No matter that everybody in the castle had grown to love her...Read more ›
Thomas and Rowan had been lovers for six months before Thomas married Gloriana. Gloriana never had a problem with their sexual relationship and was facinated by it at first. I wish the scenes between the three had been more detailed and longer. Perhaps if the story had been longer than 200 pages that could have happened.
I didn't really care for the part about Thomas wanting his son back. I wasn't all that interested in reading about a child. Overall I was satisfied with this story and would like to read a sequal.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
