About this deal

Marguerite of Asterias, Meg for her friends, is burdened by the responsability of her father’s kingdom. Her father is aging and hasn’t the force anymore to guide his knights and soldiers in battle. Plus he knows little of the real life of his people, some starving, some ill... so she decides to disguise herself and visit her father’s kingdom and find ways of helping them and getting them food, clothes and basic needs. But what to do about the century long battle with Edmira, their long time enemies. How to save Asterias from falling into ruin? Her cradle is later stolen from Keves Castle by the Lost Numbers, who keep it stored within their facility to deny it to the Kevesi forces. However, she is accidentally released by Cubibi during a game of hide-and-seek and joins the people of the City. At her insistence and the advice of the similarly revived Cammuravi (who she instinctively recognizes despite having no memory of her previous life), she travels to Colony Omega and has her growth accelerated to her final term by a specialized Cradle, allowing her to fight with Noah and her allies once again. Margaret had asked Charles Castle in 1974 to write her biography, but reneged. [26] He then published The Duchess Who Dared – The Life of Margaret, Duchess of Argyll in 1994.

I had wealth, I had good looks. As a young woman I had been constantly photographed, written about, flattered, admired, included in the Ten Best-Dressed Women in the World list, and mentioned by Cole Porter in the words of his hit song " You're the Top". The top was what I was supposed to be. I had become a duchess and mistress of a historic castle. My daughter had married a duke. Life was apparently roses all the way. [2] Shantal is hopelessly romantic. She adores writing ALL THE FEELS right up to the first kiss and beyond saying, “I do.” She is a multi-genre sweet romance author who engages in her two great passions: reading and writing heart-soaring romance, charming characters with chemistry, and scintillating kisses that will steal your breath away. Originally drawn to writing young adult Medieval romance, she’s since written contemporary romance, all sweet and clean. a b c d e "The scarlet Duchess of Argyll: Much more than just a Highland fling".

The English composer Thomas Adès wrote the music, and novelist Philip Hensher contributed the libretto; the Festival, along with the Almeida Opera, commissioned the piece. [30] The opera's Duchess character, an image of the real woman refracted through an astringent camp sensibility, invites both sympathy and contempt for her by design. [31] Ethel is of Dutch descent on her father's side. Their family name was originally spelled "Mugggs" but lost the third "G" when Ethel's grandfather, Manfred Mugggs, immigrated to the United States. [3]


Wow!! I didn’t know what to expect of Shantal Sessions debut novel, but the cover and the and the blurb was so intriguing that I had to buy it! I love medieval romances and this is one of the best I’ve read!
