Breaking the Spine, that showcases upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week I'm yearning for The Garden Intrigue by Lauren Willig. I love Willig's Pink Carnation series and cannot wait for the latest installment! Unfortunately I'll have to be patient until February.
As Napoleon pursues his plans for the invasion of England, English operative Augustus Whittlesby gets wind of a top secret device, to be demonstrated over the course of a house party at Malmaison. The catch? The only way in is to join forces with that annoying American socialite, Emma Morris Delagardie, who has been commissioned to write a masque for the weekend’s entertainment. Even so, it should leave plenty of alone time with Augustus’ colleague (and goddess), Jane Wooliston, who has been tapped to play the heroine. Or so Augustus tells himself. In this complicated masque within a masque, nothing seems to go quite as scripted… especially Emma.
