From the Author:

The Key
Dear Readers;

When I started to write "The Key" I wanted to write a book with a chastity belt in it. Of course, then I had to come up with a reason why a woman would be wearing one. Nasty husbands and controlling fathers didn't sound like much fun. Besides, I'm not the cruel sort who would leave a girl in a chastity belt for days, weeks, or months on end with no chance to take it off every once in a while to relieve herself, or just let her poor skin breathe. So, she had to have control of the key to the belt and be wearing it by choice.

Which brings me back to the question of why?

I didn't have long to wonder before Duncan came sauntering into my mind. Tall, strong, handsome, and ambitious, he is every girl's dream...So long as you don't need to breathe...Through your nose. Are you getting the picture yet? As the saying goes, "nobody's perfect" and our Duncan's imperfection is in the hygiene area. He's lived the "grand bachelor's life" with his father since his early childhood when his mother died. Cleaning is an alien concept, and bathing is a chore to be suffered twice a year "every January and July". Well, Iliana just isn't the type of girl to put up with that kind of behavior. Especially not in the marriage bed. So, she dons the belt, and boots "hubby" out of bed. Not the best way to start a marriage. But it only gets worse - or better, depending on how you look at it - from there. I rather pictured Duncan as a healthy, randy, bull of a man, chasing our more refined Iliana around the castle, trying everything to get into her belt. Everything but a bath that is.

I hope you enjoy their shenanigans.

Lynsay

From the Back Cover:

Iliana Wildwood would do anything to escape the depraved attentions of the unscrupulous baron who covets her lands . . . including marrying a barbarian. Fleeing to the Scottish Highlands, she weds Duncan, laird to Dunbar Castle. Certainly, there is something about the virile warrior that makes her weak in the knees, but she refuses to allow him into her bed until he agrees to become more civilized.

And Iliana has the perfect device to help her resist the temptations of her powerful, handsome husband: a belt of chastity. With it firmly in place, she can successfully thwart his determined advances. Still, Duncan is not one to easily accept defeat—and, with a brilliant change in tactics, he launches a bold assault on her virtue designed to make her willingly, breathlessly, give up . . . The Key.
