Lucy: A prim and proper little princess, they called me. Twenty-eight-years-old, never been kissed, and the closest thing I’ve ever had to a relationship is running my family vineyard.
But then I met him – a surly, one-eyed war veteran with a will of iron and a heart of gold.
In a single day, he made me feel things I didn’t think were possible. In one forbidden afternoon, he made a woman out of me.
And now everything is ruined.
Because how can an ice-queen like me burn for somebody so hotly?
And how can he and I be together, when I’d foolishly promised to get married to his brother?
Harry: An anti-aircraft shell took my eye, my military career, and a whole lot more than that.
Now I live alone, in the big, old house I grew up in, with only racehorses and whiskey for company.
And I like it that way. At least when I’m on my own, I don’t have to endure the stares, or the whispers, or the kids pointing in horror at my half-a-face.
But all that was ruined when my brother announced he was getting married, and insisted I ‘get to know’ his blushing bride-to-be.
My brother, the aspiring politician. He’d never had any interest in women. I knew he’d only get engaged for political convenience; to put on a respectable face for all those picky voters. He didn’t even want to hold a girl’s hand, so I knew whichever girl he’d pick to marry would have to have a cynical reason of her own.
But why did he have to pick her?
Because the moment I met Lucy Henwood, everything changed.
Her engagement to my brother might be a sham, but my feelings about her aren’t.
And after one afternoon of forbidden passion, I know she feels the same way.
I’ve never burned like this for a woman; and nobody’s ever made me feel this complete before.
But how can we be together, when she’s stood up and told the world that she’s marrying my brother?
The Virgin and the Veteran is an 87,500 word military bad-boy romance with no cheating (seriously) and scenes so steamy, you might need to apply ice afterward. HEA guaranteed.

My name is Simone Scarlet. I’m originally from Great Britain, but currently live in the United States.
I have two passions in life – writing and fighting. I’ve been writing romance and erotica for years now (if you search Amazon for my penname, you’ll find a whole niche dedicated to erotica.) I’ve also been a crazy fan of martial arts and fighting competitions.
With Simon Scarlet MMA, I’m combining my two passions into one – a series of sexy romance stories centered around a cast of sexy alpha males and smoldering, sexy women.
My stories are replete with romance, sex and emotion; all blended with fearsome fighting and hardcore MMA action. Characters appear across multiple books, creating a vividly-realistic world and many and varied relationships.
