"The storyline is going epic ... I loved seeing cameos of the other couples and I can't wait for the next book with Matthias and Danaë."- Kyrais, Amazon review
"...this book was thoroughly enjoyable, and completely un-put-downable."- Archaeolibrarian
From the Author
And here we are with the third book in a series that was never supposed to be a series. I've been describing it as "Lady Mary from Downton Abbey
goes head to head with Alan Shore from Boston Legal
--and hijinks ensue!" While I've resigned Danaë and Matthias to the background for now, fear not, Mattaë fans--book four will run in parallel to the events of Lady of Thorns
and covers what happens when Matthias arrives in Hellas for his first official visit after the wedding. In the meantime I do hope you enjoy the story of Amelie and Alain, and I can promise that they'll make another appearance down the line as I now know where I'm going with this series. All I will say about that is: buckle up, because it's going to be a bumpy ride. Mwahahahaha...Lady of Thorns
could not have been completed without the awesome beta talents of Lisa Trainor-diNorcia, J. Kathleen Cheney, Theresa Eastridge, and Peter White, the mad editing skills of Karl Jones, and my marvelous husband who sat there with me while I had Baby's First Colonoscopy and tossed plot points around with me.
Much of this book was written to a combination of soundtracks (including The Fountain
, Stage Beauty
, and Game of Thrones
) and music from Florence + the Machine, Rihanna, and Zoe Keating.
