Lord and Master Trilogy
Kait Jagger
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.

"What is your writing process? For instance do you do an outline first? Do you do the chapters first? "

‘My writing process.’ I am smiling as I type this, because it sounds pretty highfalutin, for a first time author like me. I can’t honestly claim to have a proper modus operandi when it comes to planning out my books. I’m a bit of a daydreamer by nature, and really, my process starts with nothing more than…hmm, focused daydreaming, I guess you’d call it. Thinking about characters, envisioning settings, playing out scenarios in my head; I did a LOT of that before I really got down to writing Lord and Master, the first book in my Lord and Master Trilogy.

I found that I did my most productive thinking either when I was out walking or sitting in the passenger seat of a car on a long trip, so, not gonna lie, I clocked up many miles one way or another over the course of three books! Music helped too, and that shows in the books, which have plentiful references to the Arctic Monkeys, Nirvana and other bands and performers I love. When it came to the sex scenes in the books, I made myself a promise early on that I would include no sexual positions or acts that I hadn’t tried and enjoyed myself, so I had to do a fair bit of…ahem, research along the way. My husband, as you might imagine, is extremely supportive of my fledgling writing career ;-)

Maybe the only hard and fast discipline I put on myself during the actual writing process was that I made sure to write in a linear way, i.e., I started at the beginning of the story and carried on to the end, no skipping ahead or writing the scenes I wanted to write, then filling in the spaces in between. I honestly think if I hadn’t done it that way, I’d never have finished the books—it’s easy to write the bits you want to write, but the real skill lies in how you tie them together.

And I’d like to think that I was very disciplined when it came to the editing process. Self-published authors can’t afford to be precious about their work, so I took advice from my wonderful beta readers, and tried to be tough on myself. And I hired a totally fantastic copy editor, Antony Hitchin, who polished the very rough diamond that was my writing and who, if he ever reads this, will doubtless be finding all kinds of errors and biting his metaphorical tongue!
