Plus, I’ve been binging some Regency romances by Bree Wolf.

The True Prince of Vaurantania by Brenda W. Clough

New Works By Previous Guests!

Brenda Clough‘s latest May Marian story is out! The True Prince of Vaurantania. (Book 1 in the May Marian series is online and free.)

Marian Halcombe Camlet had thought her worst enemy was dead. But a dangerous Balkan prince discovers that her husband Theo is his exact double, a handy stand-in for his own assassination.


I’m starting to learn the flowers that are in my (inherited) garden. I even guessed this one was a peony!
