Here is Day Six of my teaser posts leading up to the publication of The Ruins of Lace by Iris Anthony from Sourcebooks. Not everyone is noble, even if they have a title. That is most true of the Count of Montreau. Each day until October 2nd, I’ll be providing a little bit of information about one of the characters and a picture of something that represents that character. All of the items will be included in a themed gift basket that one of my readers will win. Keep coming back for a little more each day.
The Ruins of Lace reveals how the magnetic pull of the forbidden can ensnare anyone into its web. Seven different characters will have their lives impacted by lace, some in ways they never could have imagined. Here are their stories.
All I really want is to sit down at the gaming tables.
To risk everything on the roll of a die or the turn of a card.
God! That takes true courage.
To stare Fate in the eye and dare her to slap you? That takes nerve.
My father has never understood my passion.
He believes that true nobility is earned on the battlefield and that my growing debts are a disgrace to the family name.
He’s so ashamed that he’s paying a Cardinal to officially disown me.
I need to find the perfect, irresistible bribe.
Something that will convince the Cardinal that my father could not throw me out onto the streets.
What I need is lace.
Count of Montreau
