Delilah Marvelle in on the Island!

My dearest Readers,

LORD OF PLEASURE is officially out. Yay! In celebration of its release, I thought it's be great to discuss some of the things men would actually learn if they attended the School of Gallantry. By the by, for those of you that don't know, the School of Gallantry was founded in 1830 in London, by Madame de Maitenon who sought to educate men in the topic of love and seduction. (Mind you, the school and all the characters in my books are fictional but hey, a woman can dream...and boy do I dream!)


*Instead of relying on giving a lady more flowers and more gifts, try to rely on giving more of yourself.

*The art of pleasure involves more than just that stick between your legs.

*As a side note to number 2, most women's delicate little pearls cannot be reached by said stick, no matter how long or how large. Which leaves a woman quite wanting. It is up to you to ensure that little pearl is properly tended to.

*Lust can be quite a terrible predicament. Learn to control it, lest it control you.

*A dildo is a fun little accessory every man should keep at his bedside. Not for himself, mind you (although if it strike your fancy...), but rather, for his lady.

*You cannot thoroughly pleasure a woman you do not know. Take the time to understand who she is. Not just what she looks like.

*Men are peacocks. Emphasis on the cocks.

*Love isn't something meant to be understood. But felt.

*No, not all men are created equal. Because some of you possess qualities that go beyond a woman's wildest dreams. You just have to learn what those qualities are.

*If you are enrolled in this school, you are already taking your first step toward pleasuring your lady. Be proud of it.

*Though earlier it was mentioned you should give more of yourself than flowers or gifts, expenseive gifts, such as jewelry, do come in handy when words simply elude you. But I do suggest you start reading the dictionary on a more frequent basis to help you build your vocabulary as words are necessary to maintaining a relationship.

*Ask your lady what it is she wants most from you. Then try not to run.

*You cannot become the Lord of Pleasure until your lady dubs you as such.

Thanks for visiting today and be sure to check out more tomorrow!

I am so thrilled you were able to come to the reading! Not so thrilled you didn't come up to me! I would have LOVED to have spoken with you, Thank you so much for the congrats on HQN. It still has to sink in, LOL.

Thank you for the congrats! I think every man should read my book, but sadly, it will be mostly women, and we come back to the problem that continues to plague need to be educated on the topic of love and seduction. grin.

I am so thrilled to hear you enjoyed Mistress of Pleasure! And LOL. I love the quote you chose too!! Men. Gotta love them.

I think women everywhere need to get a petition going that ALL men need to under go such an education before they are allowed to date!
Great post and welcome to the island.

What a cheeky little thing you are, Delilah! Wonder if these readers know how lovely and sweet you are in person. Hmm.... looks can be SO deceiving. :)

I took notes, by the way. Not that Mr. Darcy needs any advice! He has already figured out ALL of this already. But, there are other characters to write. :)

Can't wait to read the books! I have lots to catch up on. Love ya sweetie! See ya around the island.

Delilah Marvelle said...

I am *shocked* that you'd be taking notes, LOL. And you speak of my looks being deceiving? Grin. I hear you about Mr. Darcy. He's born with understanding the ladies :D Thank you for all your lovely energy and posting!
