Rescued from drudgery by charming prince? No, no, and . . . Heh. Now Izzy’s given up yearning for romance. She’ll settle for a roof over her head. What fairy tales are left over for an impoverished twenty-six year-old woman who’s never even been kissed? This one.

Major Elijah Hollister never wanted to be an earl, particularly not when it meant losing his brother. When a bold adventuress shows up at his door seeking a treasure map, Elijah suspects his brother’s death may not have been accidental and that the lady knows more than she’s willing to share. Whether she’s a friend or foe, Elijah plans to keep her close—and hope the temptation of her kisses doesn’t ruin them both. Miss Catriona Bowen can almost taste the fruits of her years-long quest to find one of Britain’s greatest treasures. The discovery will deliver the recognition and respect she deserves as an antiquary, despite the fact that she’s a woman. However, to find the map that will lead her to success, she must ally herself with a stoic, yet provocative gentleman with a different goal. And when a villain threatens their lives, she realizes too late that love is the greatest treasure of all.

This collection of fifteen essays looks at the theme of decadence and its recurring manifestations in European literature and literary criticism from medieval times to the present day. Various definitions of the term are explored, including the notion of decadence as physical decay. Some of the essays draw parallels between modernist and postmodernist notions of decadence. Similarities are detected between fin de siècle decadence at the end of the nineteenth century (which reaches its apotheosis in the character of Eugene Wrayburn in Our Mutual Friend) and depictions of decadence in our own age as we enter the new millennium.

Romancing Treason focuses on late medieval English literature written during the Wars of the Roses. It analyses this period's canonical text, Malory's Morte Darthur, alongside lesser-known contemporary texts of the same genre of prose romance, and in connection with non-literary texts such as chronicles, letters, political verses, and parliamentary attainders. Concentrating on the theme of treason that is a shared concern across all of thesetexts, this book relates the secular English literature of the mid-to-late fifteenth century to the crises and civil war of the time, arguing that this is a literary culture that insistently engages with the problems ofcontemporary England. This book suggests the idea of a literature of the Wars of the Roses as a way of understanding an understudied period, helping to contextualise both the literary achievements that came before - with Chaucer, the Gawain-poet, and Lydgate - and the Tudor or early modern literature that followed.
