A Lily Among Thorns Re-release!


You guys. Today marks the re-release of one of my all-time favorite historicals! Rose Lerner's wonderful A Lily Among Thorns has been out of print (woe, desolation) ever since the Dorchester fiasco. But, happily, Samhain picked it up and re-released it in ebook form with a few minor revisions and a new cover. A paperback edition will follow next year. For the curious, you can read the prologue and first chapter here. And for the even curiouser, you can read my original review here. As I frequently remark, Ms. Lerner's characters are people I would want to know and keep in my life. And Serena and Solomon are my very favorites. 

To celebrate the re-release, Rose has posted a free tie-in short story featuring Solomon's little sister and her husband. She's also running a Lily gift basket giveaway. So be sure to stop in to check out all the fun goodies.

  1. Yay!! I think I added this to my to-read list even before I first started reading romance. Something about it just called to me and I've wanted to pick it up. Good news indeed!

  3. What is the time period of this book? The old cover makes it seem so Austen-esque, but orange dress doesn't quite scream regency era!

  4. Yes, the old cover really did give off that Austen vibe. The new cover is a bit more accurate, I think. And, you know, I mislabeled this. It's Victorian era, not regency. Solomon's brother fought in the Napoleonic Wars.

On Angie, the Relative Scarcity Thereof

I've been a bit scarce round these parts of late and I feel badly about it. But there is a good reason and I've been waiting until today to share it with you. Just so I could include one rather pertinent detail. It's a boy! Fortunately I'm at the point where I'm starting to feel better, so things should soon start resembling business as usual around here. I, for one, am relieved.

Forever Blog Tour + Giveaway!

I'm awfully excited to be a part of this unique blog tour in celebration of the release of Forever by the insanely talented Maggie Stiefvater .  Scholastic recently launched an online community called  This Is Teen  to connect readers with their favorite YA authors and books. Visit their page on   Facebook   for all the latest news on   Maggie Stiefvater   and   Forever .  Each stop on the tour is hosting a particular character from the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy, and I have the good luck to be the stop for Sam--my favorite emo-wolfboy!  Sam is so very endearing, in a decidedly non-angsty or overt way. His breathtaking blend of maturity and vulnerability tugs at my heartstrings and the strength of his relationship with Grace is unswerving.  He is warm and thoughtful and artistic, and I liked him right from the start of the series . Because I can't resist, here are two of my favorite Sam quotes, the first from Grace's point of view in  Shiver and the second from Sam&
