    From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sylvia Day comes a story of the ultimate seduction. . . . 
    Max Westin. Sex incarnate. She could smell it, feel it with his proximity. Everything about him was a little rough, a little gritty. He was a primitive creature. Just like her. 
    He held her hand a little too long, his gaze, under thick lashes, clearly stating his intention to have her. To tame her. . . . 
    "Victoria." 
    Her name, just one word, but spoken with such possession she could almost feel the collar around her neck. 
    "It's in your nature," he murmured. "The desire to be taken." 
    In this game of cat and mouse, everything is an illusion, but the passion is as real as it gets. . . .

    "Vivid and amusing...Magically funny."-Ursula K. LeGuin, Los Angeles Times   
     
    An enchanting collection of stories, set in the same world, from the author of the award-winning, internationally bestselling Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. 
     
    Following the international bestseller Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, Susanna Clarke returns with an enchanting collection of stories brimming with all the ingredients of good fairy tales: petulant princesses, vengeful owls, ladies who pass their time in embroidering terrible fates, endless paths in deep, dark woods, and houses that never appear the same way twice. The heroines and heroes who must grapple with these problems include the Duke of Wellington, a conceited Regency clergyman, an eighteenth-century Jewish doctor, and Mary Queen of Scots, as well as two characters from Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell; Strange himself and the Raven King.  
     
    The Ladies of Grace Adieu and Other Stories introduces readers to a world where charm is always tempered by eerieness, and picaresque comedy is always darkened by the disturbing shadow of Faerie.

    Lina has finally gained the freedom and respect that she's been thirsting for. That was a hard-won battle against Gabreon, her fae “master” and lover. Now, she’d love nothing more than to relax and try to build a life with him and their unborn child. Too bad it's taking all her and Gabreon’s skill and effort to survive the dangerously prejudiced society around them. His grandfather, the fae King of Sidheen, is on New Earth, doing heaven knows what. Worse, Gabreon’s enemies are gearing up with plans of their own. 
     
    Gabreon, a fae lord of New Earth, knows he has a long journey of earning Lina’s complete trust and love. Sometimes, it seems that will only be possible when, or if, humans are treated as equals of the fae. But any attempt at that outcome will come at a steep price. Their enemies are many while their friends seem perilously few. New Earth already stands on the edge of a revolution that would set humans against their fae overlords—and each other. Will Gabreon and Lina wager not only their love but their lives on a future that might never exist?
