Today, I am again taking part in THE SUNDAY POST from The Caffeinated Reviewer. It’s a great opportunity to meet up with new, and old readers, and other bloggers! After you hang out here a while, I hope you’ll check out THE CAFFEINATED REVIEWER ‘s link up.
While you have to love Manhattan for the sheer variety of stuff available, food, museums, and people watching, the heat, the crowds and the basic brusqueness of people on the street take me It’s always great to get home! They say the Chinese have a curse, “May you live in interesting times.” I am glad to be out from under that for the moment and to have my summer returning to normal.
Here’s what happened on my blog this past week. I thought I might explain my rationale for the images I used. For Friday I used an image I use for each round up so I did not show it here.
I chose to use a variety of Beauty & the Beast images, gold bars and roses.
In this novel the area of London where Marlowe lived is talked about, but it is hard to imagine that kind of misery in London so I found a depiction of the area.
The Psy Net the psy hive mind is described as a net of lights. I took an image of a big cat, and superimposed it.
The Regency period is often beautifully interpreted in a genre paintings from later in the 19th century called “Regency revival.” This book has a lot of tears, and potentially more of them.

At RWA I got some free book cards for THE EARL’S DEFIANT WALLFLOWER I would like to share with some lucky readers from ERICA RIDLEY:
Oliver York returns from war to find his father dead, his finances in arrears, and himself the new Earl of Carlisle. If he doesn’t marry an heiress—and fast!—he and his tenants are going to be pitching tents down by the Thames. He definitely shouldn’t be trading kisses with a penniless debutante… no matter how captivating she is!
Miss Grace Halton is in England just long enough to satisfy the terms of her dowry. But a marriage of convenience isn’t as easy as she’d hoped. Back in America, her ailing mother needs medicine only Grace’s dowry can afford. Which means the dashing earl she can’t get out of her mind is the one man she can’t let into her heart. http://www.ericaridley.com/books/dukes-of-war-series/the-earls-defiant-wallflower/
