Review

"Sharply defining unforgettable characters and exquisitely fashioning a sumptuous love story, Ms. Putney proves herself a dreamspinner of the highest order....This splendorous tale is the perfect romance for the reader in search of the extraordinary." ~Romantic Times
 
"Mary Jo Putney is a gifted writer with an intuitive understanding of what makes romances work. I loved Silk and Shadows, couldn't put it down, and don't think readers will, either." ~Jayne Ann Krentz

"A fabulous, fabulous book. Bravo!" ~Mary Balogh

"Silk and Shadows is something else. Like brilliant. It got under my skin as very, very few books have. It's still under my skin. Mikhal was haunting."~Loretta Chase

"Mary Jo Putney's absolutely best yet."~Laura Kinsale 

From the Author

The Silk trilogy started with Silk and Shadows, my Count of Monte Cristo story, in which a wealthy, enigmatic prince comes to London to avenge himself again a well-born man who has committed unforgivable crimes.  While I was researching Asia to find a suitably obscure backstory for Peregrine, I came across the true story of a rescue mission to Bokhara in Uzbekistan.  I'd always been fascinated by the vast mysterious center of Central Asia, and I immediately started thinking about a story inspired by that rescue mission.
 
That became Silk and Secrets,  a story of high adventure and lost love regained, which led right into Veils of Silk, a marriage of convenience story set in India.  The time period is late 1830s to early 1840s, a time when travel and technology were expanding the world, but there wasn't yet the heaviness of the late Victorian period.
