Barbara Kyle recommends
House of Rose (2018)
(Magic City, book 1)
T K Thorne
"Thorne delivers a spellbinding thriller, an enthralling blend of real-world policing and other-world magic. It's a wild ride of high stakes that pits the warm humanity of Rose and her friends against chilling powers of darkness in a battle that is both ages old and totally of today."
Secrets of the Tudor Court (2010)
(Tudor Court , book 1)
D L Bogdan
"Throbs with intensity as it lays bare the secret delights of Tudor court life and the sudden, lethal terrors. A tale of innocence and ruthless ambition locked in a love-hate embrace."
