Luna Ballantyne is 39 years old and very happily single. She lives in a fabulous apartment overlooking the river in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne, and has three loves in life; men, sex and her wonderful friends. She is living proof that women really can ‘have it all’ – they just need to redefine what ‘all’ means.
Taking inspiration from her real life experiences, Luna has recently released Freedom, The Sensual Liaisons Series Book One. The first in a series of erotic romances and is busy working on the second one which will be released in 2015.
Luna has always maintained that her leading man is a work of fiction although many have claimed he is based on them!
As well as being a novelist, she also owns an extremely successful chain of lingerie stores and is soon to star in her own no-holds-barred T.V. Reality show.
She is the pen name of Author Ingrid Hall

“She couldn’t help wonder more than a little wistfully what Pete was doing right now?
Whether he was missing her or whether he too was planning on celebrating his first official night of freedom by having
sex with a random stranger.”
Newly divorced and after spending years trapped in a soul-less marriage, Zara Cockburn is ready for anything and intends to make full use of the naughty little kit of sex toys, lubricants and condoms that her friends have put together for her. This is HER night, HER freedom night, a once in a lifetime kind of night.
A night of fulfilled prophecies. A night of sexual deviance with a handsome and hypnotic stranger.
A night that will end in a “special request” that she will find herself yielding to. It is also a night in which she will unwittingly become embroiled in the twisted mind games of a time-travelling highwayman and a young woman executed for witchcraft in 17th Century England.
Who is the Highwayman and what does he need from her? Will Zara seal her fate or gain her coveted Freedom?
One thing’s for certain; her life will never be the same again.
Freedom is the first in a series of erotic romances chronicling the journey of the highwayman as he makes his way back to the young woman who holds the key to his heart.
PRAISE FOR FREEDOM
‘Time travel, what can I say. I love it in all its forms. I do, however, have to say that I had never read one quite like this. Luna not only understands female sexuality, but has managed to get into the brains and loins of the male psyche as well, in a totally believable and realistic manner.
Freedom is not only a wonderful time travel story set in Newcastle, England, today and 1636, but has witches and erotica. Sex is integral to the story as The Highwayman is cursed with being a gigolo, a role that isn’t always a curse to him, as when he meets Zara who is celebrating her divorce with the hopes of a wild, steamy freedom night. The story left me satisfied, yet wanting more. I want to know what fate awaits Max and wished to learn more about his cursor, Elizabetha. I needed more of her and hope that when “Compromised – The Sensual Liaisons Series Book 2” comes out in 2015, I get it.’
‘Got time on your hands? So has the highwayman. Spend a sizzling sex session with the suave and dangerous Max aka the Bastard of Bilbao. As Zara sets out on her ‘Freedom’ night – to celebrate her divorce from staid ex-husband Pete – she finds herself tangled up in the web of the mysterious Max. Pulled from the flames of a burning pub, Max whisks Zara away on a raunchy week-long sexual odyssey of self-discovery. Zara soon finds that there is more to Max than meets the eye. Raunchy sex, time-travel and a twisted love that stretches back into the dark days of the Newcastle witch trials – Zara’s life will never be the same again as she looks beneath the mask of the time-travelling highwayman.
The first in a series of erotic fiction, Freedom introduces the character of Giraldo de Logrono otherwise known as the Bastard of Bilbao the swashbuckling adventurer, sexual mercenary and time-travelling highwayman.’

All in all, a racy little page turner that left me wanting more and eager to read the next instalment.’
EXCERPTS FROM FREEDOM
‘The kit, being a spacious, but discreet, black toiletry bag containing a realistic looking seven inch dildo, cat ‘o’ nine tails, leather cuffs, nipple clamps, clit clip, quilted blindfold, red crotch-less knickers, lube, and an assortment of condoms. Even though Zara had helped prepare these kits on numerous occasions in the past for friends who were divorcing, she couldn’t help blushing at the thought of what she was expected to do with the items that her friends had so lovingly provided!’
‘It is enough for now to just understand that you will go voluntarily with him when the moment is right. That while some of his requests may seem a little bizarre, he won’t take anything from you unless it is freely given, and he will always give something of equal value in return. With Margaret, it was a child she desperately craved and which her husband was unable to give her. With Olivia, it was the sense of balance that she felt in finally being able to straighten the bed sheets after her husband’s own foolish and much talked about discretion….
“What about me?” Zara asked intrigued’
