Description

Now Alys must pay the price to save his life and allow the Beast, the once handsome Philippe, to pay court to her.

Author bio:

Heather Rose Jones is the author of the Alpennia historic fantasy series: an alternate-Regency-era Ruritanian adventure revolving around queer women’s lives, woven through with magic, alchemy, and intrigue. Her short fiction has appeared in The Chronicles of the Holy Grail, Sword and Sorceress, Lace and Blade, and at Podcastle.org. Heather blogs about research into lesbian-relevant motifs in history and literature at the Lesbian Historic Motif Project and has a podcast covering the field of lesbian historical fiction and historic fantasy, which includes book listings, author interviews, and short audio fiction. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and works as an industrial failure investigator in biotech pharmaceuticals—which has surprising parallels with writing novels. She enjoys bicycling and gardening and only reluctantly gave up a decades-long involvement in the Society for Creative Anachronism, which fed a deep love affair with the material culture of pre-modern Europe.



Heather Rose Jones is the creator and host of the Lesbian Historic Motif Project, a site providing historic resources for authors writing lesbian/sapphic characters in historic settings (https://alpennia.com/lhmp) and its associated podcast which supports and promotes lesbian/sapphic historical fiction and historic fantasy (https://lesbianhistoricmotif.podbean.com/).
