Spice Level:

The spice rating is in regards to the type of sexual content within the book. Below is a helpful guide (courtesy of Georgia C Leigh)

1= YA romantic, making out, MAYBE a closed door.
2= some on page foreplay and nudity but mostly fade to black.
3= open door, on page vanilla sex.
4= on page sex – hot or with kink.
5= erotica.

“Erotica and horror can make for entertaining bedfellows, but they can be a difficult act to balance. […] My Lord by L.B. Shimaira manages to balance these two components, ensuring both aspects complement each other. With a strong sense of character that examines its protagonist’s trauma as it tells a story about her growth, My Lord becomes something stronger than a simple combination of erotica and horror.”
– W.A. Stanley (
MY LORD is a queer, slow-burn erotic gothic horror novel about rediscovering yourself after trauma—with kinky, blood-drinking immortals and polyamory.

After losing hearth and home, Meya attempts to escape the traumatic memories by travelling east. In 13th century Tristanja, however, it’s not safe to be alone.

A local slave trader catches wind of the kinless woman and abducts her in the dead of night. Beaten and abused, the now meek Meya is sold to Lord Deminas. He’s known to be cruel, yet becomes strangely protective of his new chambermaid, punishing anyone who dares hurt her. After cutting her to drink her blood, he even uses his own to heal her wounds.

Meya and her paramour wonder if Deminas’ dark secret is why servants regularly vanish, including the lord’s previous chambermaids. However, the two women quickly learn that Lord Deminas isn’t the only danger lurking in the castle’s shadows.

Content warning: abduction, off-page and non-graphic sexual abuse (rape is condemned and sexual abusers are killed), explicit sexual content (consent is emphasised), kink (wax play, knife and blood play, primal play, bondage, and mention of spanking and breath play), graphic violence, gore, death, vampirism, cannibalism, and illness (pneumonia).
