The Mystic Marriage

by Heather Rose Jones

Antuniet Chazillen lost everything the night her brother was executed. In exile, she swore that treason would not be the final chapter of the Chazillen legacy in Alpennia’s history. A long- hidden book of alchemical secrets provides the first hope of success, but her return to the capital is haunted by an enemy who wants those secrets for himself. 

Jeanne, Vicomtesse de Cherdillac is bored. The Rotenek season is flat, her latest lover has grown tediously jealous and her usual crowd of friends fails to amuse. When Antuniet turns up on her doorstep seeking patronage for her alchemy experiments, what begins as amusement turns to interest, then something deeper. But Antuniet’s work draws danger that threatens even the crown of Alpennia. 

The alchemy of precious gems throws two women into a crucible of adversity, but it is the alchemy of the human heart that transforms them both in this breathtaking follow-up to the widely acclaimed Daughter of Mystery.

Women And Words: That Sounds Dirty, But I’m Not Sure Why

October 9, 2016

Women and Words Overview

1-7 October 2016

Jove Belle and Andi Marquette this week -- at turns philosophical and at others, reminiscent of squirrels who ate way too much sugar.

 

1 October: A Reader’s Perspective with Erin Saluta, and in honor of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness month, she did a blog on lesfic books that include breast cancer/characters that deal with it.

4 October: Author and Women and Wordster D Jordan Redhawk is just about done with her latest book, and she’s in that weird twilight zone between projects. She talks a bit about that, and for the record, Jove and Andi think she should totally do that “sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll” thing she brought up.

5 October: Author and Women and Wordster Carsen Taite joined us to remind us that Women’s Week in Provincetown, Massachusetts, is about to commence next week (10-16 October).

6 October: A twofer today! Author and Women and Wordster Fiona Zedde is soon to be off gallivanting again, this time to South Africa. She also provides a travel site she uses that will no doubt ruin all of us because of the cheap fares available. Her latest, Rise of the Rain Queen, is set in southeastern Africa.

7 October: Author and Women and Wordster Andi Marquette had the great fun and fortune to interview three writers/founders of the amazing geek culture blog, Lady Geek Girl and Friends, which is geekdom/pop culture analysis through a queer, feminist, and religious perspective.

Book Clips: Return To Paradise by Laina Villeneuve

October 1, 2016

Return To Paradise 

by Laina Villeneuve 

Get this novel on Amazon.com | Amazon.co.uk | Amazon.ca 

Guest-ranch manager Madison Carter certainly does. Abandoned as a small child, she knows little of her past but is convinced that uncovering it will lead her to healing and home. On a journey of self-discovery to the town where she was born, she meets Lacey McAlpine. The self-assured, straight-talking entrepreneur Lacey is blessed with loving family and friends and has always shaped her own destiny—or so she believes.

The sparks fly almost immediately, but the women’s contrasting personalities and what Lacey perceives as Madison’s secretive nature keep them from igniting—just yet. Their friendship deepens to passionate romance, however, when Madison moves into town to open her own guest ranch—and begins to open up about herself.

A lock without a key, a box of childhood treasures and a scruffy white horse begin to illuminate Madison’s shadowed past. Despite her Miss-Fix-It attitude, Lacey will soon learn that it will take a little destiny to repair a broken soul.
