by Elizabeth Rose

Some say he is the messenger of death himself, with his pet raven perched upon his shoulder.

Devon has been raised in secret, hidden inside the walls of the monastery for the last eighteen years. Now, the black-hearted Lord of Steepleton has discovered her. She is excited at first when she hears he will be bringing her to the castle, that is, until she realizes he wants her to be nothing more than his servant.

Deception and secrets are many within the walls of Blake Castle, but they can’t hold a candle to the passion that stirs between Corbett and his servant, Devon – a woman who can destroy everything he is, with the power of just one kiss.



The Trembling of a Leaf

by W. Somerset Maugham

After working in British Intelligence during World War I, William Somerset Maugham set off to regain his health by traveling to Asia, Mexico, and the Pacific Islands. During this trip he gather materials and wrote the stories that appeared in 1921 in The Trembling of a Leaf. The six short stories and two “sketches” include the famous story “Rain” adapted for both theater and film as Sadie Thompson a story about the ironic consequences of obsession. Its less known companions, however, have their own merits. “Macintosh” is a taut psychological study of two officials on a remote tropic island. “The Fall of Edward Barnard” is a brief bildungsroman about what is important in life-a pre-cursor of Maugham’s well known novel, The Razor’s Edge. Of course love is always a subject of the tropics and Maugham’s deft, ironic handling of the theme in “Red” and “Honolulu” is masterful. But it is “The Pool” that tells a poignant and tragic tale about the pitfalls for love across cultures.
