Briana Una McGuckin
On Good Authority
In the workhouse, games of dominance & submission gave Marian the comforting illusion of control. But when she’s hired as maid to a master who turns her game violently against her, she must draw the line between servitude & surrender— & confront her repressed desires along the way.

“Don’t stop ‘till you get enough…which you won’t.” ―P. J. Vernon, award-nominated author of Bath Haus
“McGuckin pens the kind of book that draws all attention and then ambushes with deadly secrets. Delicious, seductive, dangerous, On Good Authority keeps us bound tight to the page. Wouldn't have it any other way.” ―Hailey Piper, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Queen of Teeth
“On Good Authority is a tantalizing tale of upstairs-downstairs, manor house intrigue that crackles with desire and dread. Readers will be hard-pressed to put it down once they're caught in its grip.” ―Kelly J. Ford, author of Cottonmouths and Real Bad Things
