The inspiration for Catherine Lloyd's Victorian Villains Saga came from the gothic romance novels she devoured as a kid. Phyllis A. Whitney, Victoria Holt and Daphne du Maurier masterfully combined suspense, the supernatural and romance without the use of vampires. The setting is 1867 Victorian England, an exotic time of science, exploration, high drama and passionate romance on stage and in books. The villains were psychologically fascinating. And kind of sexy.... HEAT LEVEL: These are steamy romances containing scenes, language and themes written for a mature audience.
