Summary

"'This prisoner deserves special treatment.' The hooded man looked over at the young man again." 
Elsdon Taylor, a prisoner accused of committing a terrible murder. Layle Smith, a torturer with a terrible past. Their meeting in the Eternal Dungeon appears certain to bring out the worst in both men. 
Yet neither man is quite what he appears. As the prisoner and his torturer begin to be drawn toward each other, the ripple effects of their meeting will have a powerful impact on other inhabitants of the Eternal Dungeon: Layle's faithful guard, struggling to contain his doubts. A younger guard determined to take any shortcuts necessary to ensure that his life follows the path he has already chosen. An old love from Layle's past, still sorrowing. And most of all, a prisoner who has not yet arrived at the Eternal Dungeon, but whose fate will depend on how Layle handles Elsdon Taylor . . . and on how Elsdon handles Layle Smith. 
A winner of the 2011 Rainbow Awards (within the "Eternal Dungeon" omnibus), this tale of love and adventure can be read on its own or as the first volume in The Eternal Dungeon, a speculative fiction series set in a nineteenth-century prison where the psychologists wield whips. 
The Eternal Dungeon series is part of Turn-of-the-Century Toughs, a cycle of alternate history series (Waterman, Life Prison, Commando, Michael's House, The Eternal Dungeon, and Dark Light) about adults and youths on the margins of society, and the people who love them. Set in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the novels and stories take place in an alternative version of America that was settled by inhabitants of the Old World in ancient times. As a result, the New World retains certain classical and medieval customs.

    Scarlet of Lysia is an honest pedlar, a young merchant traveling the wild, undefended roads to support his aging parents.

    The acclaimed author of The Miracle “brings to life the bliss and treachery of the Italian Renaissance” in this novel of beauty and betrayal (David Henry Hwang).   In fifteenth-century Florence, young and beautiful Agnolo does whatever he must to survive. When he isn’t living with a soldier, he provides company for lonely men. But when his soldier is sent to war, Agnolo finds work as a model for the great artist Donato di Betto Bardi—otherwise known as Donatello.   While creating his famous bronze of David standing on the head of Goliath, Donatello develops a desire for Agnolo that ignites a dangerous jealousy. The artist’s assistant, the complex and conflicted Luca, is determined to save Donatello and put an end to the cattivo Agnolo.   With incisive detail, John L’Heureux beautifully renders the master sculptor’s creative genius, and the artistry that enthralled the powerful and highly competitive Medici and Albizzi families, in a novel of Renaissance Italy that is a “pleasure to read” (The Washington Post).   “A gripping story of love, genius, and betrayal.” —J. M. Coetzee, Nobel Prize–winning author   “A novel bursting with love—collegial, artistic, and erotic . . . [and] prose as passionate as his characters.” —David Henry Hwang, author of M. Butterfly

    What’s a girl to do when her duties as bridesmaid suddenly require her to wear a wedding dress, too? The bride’s odd family tradition is meant to confuse evil spirits who seek to steal brides away on their special day. Chelsea might think it cute if she weren’t still nursing her wounded pride after her own disaster of an attempted wedding. But Jennifer’s been there for her as she put the pieces back together, so the least Chelsea can do is put on a stupid dress. Besides, it’s not like a real evil spirit is going to steal her away. 
    Right?
