–RT Book Reviews
Marek directs an entertainingly large cast of characters through cobblestone corridors, archaeological digs, a surprising subplot of class war and French-Italian rivalry, sparring rival lovers, and more than one happily ever after. She keeps the pace at a pleasing trot and fully commits to the romance of travel in the Victorian era.
Lady Emily’s Exotic Journey, the second book in my Victorian Adventures series, has now been released.
In this book, Lady Emily travels with her parents to the ruins of ancient Nineveh on the Tigris River, right across from Mosul. It’s not an easy journey for them, traveling on horseback across the Taurus Mountains and on rafts down the Tigris River, and further adventures await. But Lady Emily has met a young Frenchman who has been assisting the archeologist working at Nineveh, and things look promising between them.
The first book of the series, Lady Elinor’s Wicked Adventures, is still available. In that book, Lady Elinor and her family, accompanied by Lord Tunbury, travel to Italy to explore the ruins of ancient Etruria. In the process, they defy dangerous antiquities thieves, help a Garibaldi supporter escape from the French army in Rome, and find true love.
I have had a wonderful time writing these romantic adventures, and I hope you will enjoy reading about them.
