A PORTRAIT IN ASH & LACE
An endless ocean. A ship full of women she’s never seen before. A small wooden box containing the remnants of her life.
Clutching her few belongings Gisella is shipped to strange shores to meet an unknown husband.
Sold and abandoned by her father into a nunnery, Gisella sails to the shores of New Orleans with her sister Casket Girls to provide French wives for the gentlemen of the fledgling city.
A gentleman husband of her own and an uncertain future.
Passengers whisper that the filles a la cassette are vampyre. But while the girls laugh at such silly superstition, they disguise their own fears that they are to be brides of such a monstrosity...
A child isn't born evil...is he?
Mischiefmaker, silver tongue, trickster… Mayhem follows Loki throughout the nine realms, earning him a reputation as a bringer of chaos. But there is more to Loki than mortals see, and life is boring for an immortal when no one really gets him.
A little mischief is harmless in the hands of a god, right?
Companion to Odin and Thor but shunned by the Norse gods of the Ӕsir, Loki still seeks their acceptance. No matter how many times he saves their supreme backsides, his every effort ends with a death threat casually tossed in his direction.
Increasing his attempts to impress the Ӕsir, Loki tires of their constant disdain despite his successes in their impossible challenges. So, he turns to what he does best: chaos.
Follow the trickster god Loki through the perfectly normal life of a disillusioned god, and find out what makes him NOT SO...EVIL.
This book is a stand-alone read, a chronicle of Loki's mischief and love in this collection of NOT SO...EVIL origin stories.
