The dark moment . . .

This beautiful and evocative illustration is by the gifted artists Anna and Elena Balbusso, commissioned for Alexander Pushkin’s Eugene Onegin. But it also reminds me of my hero Anthony in The Worst Duke in the World, pining for my heroine Jane, who may be lost to him forever.

Here it is . . . The glorious cover for The Worst Duke in the World! What do you think of Anthony (my sweet goofball hero) and Jane (my lovely strong-willed heroine)?

A wayward duke must choose: will he be the bad hero in a love story gone awry, or the brave & clever hero who risks everything for true love?

The latest on The Worst Duke in the World

As a reader, do typos just pop right out at you? Or do you have to really look for them? I’m currently reading the galleys of The Worst Duke in the World and trying to stay very eagle-eyed. Which is rather difficult when one is enchanted by beautiful design. (If you spot any typos, please let me know!)

Reading is good for the brain . . .

. . . As science tells us, and proves with MRIs and so on. Isn’t this a beautiful representation of the goodness too? :)

Which gown?

You’re a Regency lady and you’ve been invited to a fancy London party (rumor is that the Prince Regent and Mr. Darcy of Pemberley will be there!). But what to wear? Which gorgeous gown will you choose?

Something pretty . . .

. . . upon which to feast our eyes. A gorgeous wedding dress!

These images via @whatgrandmawore on Twitter: “A trim of orange blossom runs around the bertha of this 1856-59 dress . . . with large silk bows hanging from the shoulders. The bodice ends at a sharp point, nipping in the waist and emphasizing the skirt. Take a look at the lacing on the bodice.”
