Fierce Pursuit by Jean Hart Stewart - spotlight & giveaway

Was Lady Godiva really naked?


All my life I’ve heard of how Lady Godiva rode naked through the streets of Coventry. Supposedly she did so in protest of a new tax her husband, the Earl, had imposed upon the poor people of the town, When she objected to it he said he’d lift the tax the day she rode naked through the town.  She did, he did, and in the story it makes her a true heroine. He not only removed the tax she’d objected to, he lifted all the taxes except those on horses.


There was indeed a real Lady Godiva. She was a religious benefactor and wealthy but there is no actual historical reference to this famous ride. The first account of it occurs about 150 years after her death, in a collection of tales by one Roger Wendover, not known for historical accuracy, but for good stories. The long golden hair was added later too. One version has her ordering the townspeople to stay indoors with closed shutters. Everyone obeyed except for a miscreant named Tom who bored a hole in his shutters. And yes, that’s where we get the term Peeping Tom. One version has the gods taking away his eyesight in punishment.


Fun stuff to read, and from a book on bits of misinformation by David Haviland. You’ll doubtless hear other tales from it as I blog during the next year. Many of my UK readers already know these alleged facts, so I apologize if I’m boring you.


My latest book, Fierce Pursuit, is now out. This one had a long journey to publication,, but all hurdles seem to be cleared now for the next in the series about my sexy, pointed eared elves. It’s called Redemptive Pursuit, and takes Jake on a difficult journey he didn’t expect, and will be out soon.


Here’s a short quote from Fierce Pursuit::


“At this point Vale didn’t care what anyone thought. He took off his shoes and socks, and then his white gown. Down to his shirt and pants, he made quick work of them also. Vicky was not far behind him, but she’d only shed her nurse’s uniform and her shoes and hose when he was on her. His rampant cock was about to burst through his undershorts, and she tried to help by caressing it through the cloth, then putting her eager fingers in the slot. 

Vale batted her hands away and stepped out of his shorts, releasing his turgid cock so it pointed directly at her. Grabbing her panties he ripped them down, then pulled her slip over her head. Pausing only a second to admire her exposed body, he lay his head on her stomach.

“Love, you’d harden a dead man. How do you stay so enticing?”

She didn’t answer, just reached down for his cock and caressed the pulsing head. Vale was too far gone for much foreplay, but he allowed her to tighten her fingers and run them up and down his erection for several seconds. Then she moaned and that finished him. He plunged his cock into her already wet cunt and rejoiced when she wrapped her arms and legs around him in welcome.

She was wet and aroused and he knew instinctively this was going to be an exceptional joining. Although they’d always more than enjoyed their sexual matings, sometimes one seemed to stand out. This was definitely one of those times.”

To claim her he must leave his beloved scholarly research and learn to use his elfin powers,  Becoming a helpful elf in his father’s clinic is not at all the way he’d planned his life, but Reina is worth the upheaval. He learns to cherish two darling children who need his special powers. He finds he will do anything to secure Reina, but even that might not be enough.

Author bio:

Love living in California, even though I’m a transplant. Love writing and all it entails, crazy characters demanding to be let loose on the page, long hours of research, every bit of it. I raised two children and spent about twenty years in real estate before I summoned the courage to quit and do what I always wanted to do, WRITE! While he was alive my husband was my first-stop editor and biggest fan. Now that my children are accustomed to my writing sexy novels they’re equally supportive.


I’m currently writing my 34th book, tentatively named Defiant Pursuit. I’ve done historicals, a series of romances with Druids, another with Mages, and I’ve started a new series where the new hero has Elfin blood. He’s fun, as well as tall, lithe and gifted. And did I say sexy? My elves are my first venture into writing erotic, and it’s harder than you think as well as fun. I’m blessed as well as lucky. Do write me with any questions to I love to hear from readers!
