Favorite Author in that Genre, and Favorite Book by that Author: Currently it’s Alan Furst. I love his mix of romance (not like we read but there’s small things there) and WWII. Splices of life you never hear about. Plus, I just finished his latest, the Spies of the Balkans and really enjoyed it.
Give Us One More Favorite Thing Beyond Books: Classic movies. My favorite? Arsenic and Old Lace. It cracks me up every single time. Cary Grant is timeless. There aren’t any actors today who can do such wonderful acting with a look or a wordless cry. If you haven’t seen it, rent it, it’s worth your time. Especially the scene when he’s on the window seat. Hysterical!
Lucien, Earl of Granville, left
When I invited you into my bed, it never occurred to me I wouldn’t want you to leave.
There are darker forces at work and the hunger of a weak magicker desperate for power. Will Lucien convince Morgana of his true feelings before things spiral out of control? Or will the surrounding subterfuge tear them apart?
