Lord and Master Trilogy
Publication date: March 20th 2017
Genres: Erotica, Romance, Suspense
You think you know Luna Gregory?
Maybe you see what her boss, the Marchioness of Lionsbridge, sees: the best PA she’s ever had, a 26-year-old fixer who makes problems disappear with four quiet words—‘Leave it with me.’ Or you see a remote, untouchable Ice Princess who the 500-year-old Arborage Estate’s heir presumptive longs to crush under his heel. Possibly, if you’re looking carefully, you see Luna as her friends see her: the quiet one, touched by childhood tragedy, who laughs at their jokes and has their backs no matter what.
But ultimately it takes charismatic, devastatingly attractive Swedish entrepreneur Stefan Lundgren, third in line to inherit the estate, to glimpse the intelligent, fiercely independent woman under Luna’s calm exterior. And what he sees he wants, this woman in ten thousand who is meant for him, body writhing beneath his in the dark of night, her inner self slowly revealing itself to him. Or so he believes.
But Luna has built an entire life predicated on concealment, on maintaining control and hiding dark things in drawers. It will take the entirety of the Lord and Master trilogy, from the manicured gardens of Arborage, to the wilds of Shetland, to the streets of Stockholm, for her to step out of the shadows in the face of a new threat to Arborage.
You think you know Luna? You don’t.

Interview with Kait Jagger
Where do you get inspiration for your stories?
Strange as it may sound, my inspiration for writing the Lord and Master Trilogy was a best-selling romance novel I read a few years ago that left me feeling...let down. Let down by the heroine, whose friends, career and personal history were so sparingly portrayed I got little sense of her as a person. Let down by the hero, who was a paint-by-numbers rich, controlling Alpha. Let down even by the sex scenes, which were plentiful to the point that I wondered how the heroine was managing to hold down a job.
So I decided to put my money where my mouth was and see if I could write a romance novel for readers like me, who want story with their sex, a strong heroine who can stand toe to toe with her hero, and a hero who wasn’t a wanker. Thus began my writing adventures!
How did you do research for your book?
The primary setting for the Trilogy is Arborage House, a fictional historic estate in Berkshire. I loosely based Arborage on Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, which was the location for the Keira Knightly movies Pride and Prejudice and The Duchess. In order to breathe life into the details of Arborage’s house and gardens, I visited many, many historic properties across the length and breadth of England, and basically stole my favourite elements from each of them (a 16th century chapel here, a Capability Brown-designed garden there...you get the picture!).
The other bit of ‘research’ I did relates to the sex scenes in the books. Having read one too many romance novels featuring improbably acrobatic sexual encounters, or magic orgasms visited upon the heroine without any kind of, you know, effort on the hero’s part, I made myself a promise early on that I would include no sexual positions or acts that I hadn’t tried and enjoyed myself. My husband, as you might imagine, is extremely supportive of my fledgling writing career ;-)
Do you have another profession besides writing?
Yes! Like my heroine, Luna Gregory, I’m a full-time personal assistant.
If you could go back in time, where would you go?
Oh, this is such a hard question! I think it would have to be the start of the Roman Empire, during Emperor Augustus’ reign. We owe so much of our current culture to the Romans, and I am a diehard Latin nerd, so I’d love to hear it spoken aloud.
What is your next project?
I’m currently researching a couple of options, one a contemporary romance based in my own hometown of Manchester, the other a historic romance set around the time of Queen Victoria’s marriage to Prince Albert. Watch this space!
