Rogues, Romps & Revolutionaries!
By Madeline Iva
I heart the messy frosted wedding cake fashions of the last quarter of the 18th century. It’s not just period in time, but a spirit of change — the dawn of Romanticism, the era of enlightenment and chaos combined.
What a great time – what glorious panache the people had. A great big mix of good, bad, saint & sinners, cosmopolitian intellectuals and nature loving stewards of the land. Humanity was just about to raise her skirts and take a big step out of the muddle puddle of misery we’d been languishing in since the dark ages.
Poets and philosophers made love with each other and planned utopian visions high on opium.
Tempting Will McGashon is a romance about that time. With title you can roll around on your tongue and a Scottish hero you’d happily invite into your bed, Liz Everly combines nature worship, small town coziness, and a hot Scot with big troubles into a revolutionary historical that will tingle your toes.
