For readers who want more details before diving in

I know some readers like to know certain details about a book or series before they choose to invest their time in it. This page describes what my books contain for the following:

  • Heat level / sexual content
  • Violence or other traumatic experiences
  • Cursing

If you would like more information about a specific topic that isn’t mentioned here, please get in touch and I will add it to the page.

Spoilers ahoy!

The Stariel Quartet

Heat level / sexual content

This is a slow-burn romantic series, with the sexual content increasing over the course of the four books. There are sex scenes in later books, though the focus is always more on the emotion than graphic anatomical details. Specifically, the sexual content of the series is:

The Lord of Stariel – two kisses, briefly described

The Prince of Secrets – kissing and nudity / fondling but no sex

The Court of Mortals – one longer sex scene on-page; one briefer scene

The King of Faerie – two on-page sex scenes and one fade-to-black scene

Violence or other traumatic experiences

The violence in this series is fairly minimal and not gory.

The Lord of Stariel – one briefly described ‘fight scene’ with a fantasy monster; reference to the alcoholism of the main character’s now-deceased father

The Prince of Secrets – a character is shot (but later recovers). A villain character is killed with magic.

The Court of Mortals – a character is injured in a fight with a fantasy monster (but later recovers)

The King of Faerie – a character is implied to have experienced torture (off-screen); a pregnant character fears miscarriage (but this does not come to pass)


Cursing in this series is mostly limited to ‘damn’ and ‘bloody’, but there are occasional uses of stronger language. F-word counts:

The Lord of Stariel – none

The Prince of Secrets – two

The Court of Mortals – three

The King of Faerie – four
