"Dark and compelling. Emily Gee is a storyteller to watch." --Nalini Singh, New York Times best-selling author The Corhonase citadel is a place of virtue and debauchery--and deadly secrets. For the Laurentine spies embedded there, every day brings danger. Nothing is as it seems, whether in the ballrooms and salons of the nobles' court or the catacombs beneath the citadel. Saliel has many secrets; her spying is one, her past as a pickpocket in Laurent's slums is another, but her most deeply guarded secret is the magic she possesses. She walks a narrow path between discovery as a spy and being burned as a witch. With a sadistic Spycatcher closing in, Saliel and her fellow spies are tested to the limits of their endurance. In the fight to stay alive they must trust each other...or die. Magic may be their only hope of survival. Don't Miss Emily Gee's other books: Thief With No Shadow and The Sentinel Mage

"Oh my gosh!!! I am absolutely in love with this book!" ~ NetGalley reviewer Who is the Duke of Vickery? At the age of four Alexander St. Clare was stolen by gypsies and sold to a chimney sweep. At the age of five he was reunited with his father, the Duke of Vickery. His history is no secret—everyone in the ton knows of his miraculous rescue. But when Alexander finds his father’s diaries, he discovers that there may be a secret buried in his past. Georgiana Dalrymple knows all about secrets. She has several herself—and one of those secrets is her ability to find missing people. When Alexander turns to her for help, Georgiana sets out to discover just who he actually is... "I was taken on a roller coaster of emotions. Had me laughing then had me in tears." ~ NetGalley reviewer Length: A long novella of 40,000 words Sensuality level: A Regency romance with a steamy love scene Q & A with the author How would you describe this series? It's Regency England with a dash of magic. I hope to take readers on a journey from the glittering ballrooms of the aristocracy to the dark underbelly of Regency England – with passion, danger, adventure, romance, and a little magic thrown into the mix. I think the series could also be labelled Regency Noir, because it falls on the darker, grittier side of the romance fence, although each book contains humor, too. The stories are emotional, but not sweet (there’s sex, violence, and my heroes do swear rather badly at times!). Why did you write this series? I wanted to get my well-bred heroines out of the drawing rooms and put them in the way of adventure and romance. But I didn’t want to write a series where magic is common; I wanted to write a series where only a few characters have magic, and it’s a deep, dark secret, and no one else knows. But ... do magic and Regency England go together? Definitely! Many, many years ago I read Sorcery and Cecelia (or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot) by Patricia Wrede and Caroline Stevermer, and totally loved it and ever since then I’ve thought that Regency England and magic go very well together. Other writers think so, too. Just look at Mary Robinette Kowal's Glamourist Histories and Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. What was the catalyst for this series? A magazine article I read in which celebrities were asked what magic power they’d choose and why. That got me thinking! (I’d choose shapeshifting, by the way.) How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. Who would like this series? This series will appeal to readers who enjoy the historical backdrop of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, the dark and sensual ‘noir’ feel of Anna Campbell, the emotion of Mary Balogh or Courtney Milan, and the magic of Patricia Rice and Mary Robinette Kowal. Quite a broad range, really!

A forbidden love... Lucas Kemp’s twin sister died last year. He’s put aside his mourning clothes, but not his heartache. If Lucas ever needed a friend, it’s now—and who should walk in his door but Lieutenant Thomas Matlock... Lucas and Tom are more than just best friends; they’ve been in love with each other for years. In love with each other—and pretending not to know it. But this time, Tom’s not going to ignore the attraction between them. This time, he’s going to push the issue. He’s going to teach Lucas how to laugh again—and he’s going to take Lucas as his lover... "Heartbreakingly gorgeous. Tom is the most incredible hero - patient, understanding, passionate, sensitive. Lucas is so proper and stiff, his struggles so very real and poignant. I love Larkin's stories but this one is exquisite." ~ M.C.E. Top 500 reviewer Length: Shorter length novel of 48,000 words Sensuality level: A hot Regency male-male romance with sensual love scenes Q & A with the author Why did you write this book? When Tom and Lucas walked onto the page in Trusting Miss Trentham (the third book in the Baleful Godmother series) I fell in love with them both. I really wanted to know their story—so I decided to write it. I’m very glad I did, because it was so much fun! Lucas is my first ever virgin hero, and I really enjoyed writing his scenes. Claiming Mister Kemp was meant to be a novella, but it grew and grew and grew, until finally I had to admit defeat and call it a (short) novel. How would you describe this book? At its most basic, Claiming Mister Kemp is a friends to lovers romance, but it’s also a story about grief, and about two men finding the courage to love one another in a time when this was punishable by death. I think it’s the most emotional book I’ve ever written. Readers have told me that some scenes make them cry, which I take as a compliment! Claiming Mister Kemp is a Baleful Godmother novel, so both Tom and Lucas have brushes with magic—even if they don’t realize it. And although this book is a companion novel to Trusting Miss Trentham it can be read as a standalone. How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. Who would like this book? This book will appeal to readers who love male-male romances, Regency romances, or both. Fans of KJ Charles, Joanna Chambers, and Cat Sebastian should particularly enjoy it.

Now she must do the forbidden: become a man. She must stand at Prince Harkeld's side as his armsman, both protecting and deceiving him.

Virgil (70 19 BCE) was a poet of immense virtuosity and influence. His "Eclogues" deal with bucolic life and love, his "Georgics" with tillage, trees, cattle, and bees. His "Aeneid" is an epic on the theme of Rome s origins. Poems of the "Appendix Vergiliana" are traditionally, but in most cases probably wrongly, attributed to Virgil.
