One widow ~ three daughters ~ four heroes ~ and some very dangerous Faeries. *The Fey Quartet romance novella collection is the prequel to the Baleful Godmother historical romance series.* MAYTHORN’S WISH For years the widowed Maythorn Miller has yearned for a man she can never have: the village blacksmith, Ren. But Maythorn lives near the border with Faerie, a place where unexpected things can happen... HAZEL’S PROMISE Hazel Miller is betrothed to a man who went off to earn his fortune—and never returned. Dressed as a boy, she sets out to find him, but the roads of Medieval England are fraught with peril. When a ragged stranger risks his life to protect her, how can she refuse his company? IVY’S CHOICE Ivy Miller is lame, but in a few days she’ll receive a Faerie wish. She could wish herself able to walk freely again...if her beloved sister didn’t need saving. But Ivy’s sister isn’t the only person in desperate need of rescue. A man trapped in the shape of a deer emerges from the forest. Can Ivy break the agonizing spell that binds him? Ivy has only one Faerie wish—but many choices. LARKSPUR’S QUEST Larkspur Miller is determined to earn a Faerie wish for her sister. She knows it won’t be easy—and that it will require a man. She’s chosen her man: Cadoc Ironfist, liegeman to the Lord Warder of Dapple Vale. But Cadoc is reluctant, and the task is far more dangerous than Larkspur realized... “Her haunting prose reads like Hans Christian Andersen for twenty-first century adults.” ~ Mindy Klasky, USA TODAY bestselling author “A storyteller to watch!” ~ Nalini Singh, NYT bestselling author Q & A with the author How would you describe the Fey Quartet novellas? The Fey Quartet novellas are adult fairy tale romances. Each novella has a different feel to it--some are darker, some lighter. Themes include: wishes, secrets, new beginnings, dangerous live Faeries, dangerous dead Faeries, disguises, shapeshifting, telepathy, treachery, loyalty – and falling in love. Who would like this quartet of novellas? The Fey Quartet novellas are romances with strong heroines, a medieval backdrop, and a dash of magic. They will appeal to romance readers, especially those who enjoy medieval romances or fairy tale romances. Readers who like historical fantasy and fantasy with strong romantic elements would also enjoy the novellas. How would you describe your writing? I’ve had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan, Mary Balogh, and Georgette Heyer, all of which are massive compliments. An editor once said my writing reminded her of Lois McMaster Bujold, but she was rejecting me at the time, so that was more of a bittersweet compliment! (That book did sell once I rewrote it; it’s one of my Emily Gee fantasy novels.) What order should I read the Fey Quartet novellas in? Each novella can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading them in the following order for the best reading experience: Maythorn’s Wish Hazel’s Promise Ivy’s Choice Larkspur’s Quest The Fey Quartet novellas are the prequel to the Baleful Godmother historical romance series. The first six titles in that series are: Unmasking Miss Appleby Resisting Miss Merryweather Trusting Miss Trentham Claiming Mister Kemp Ruining Miss Wrotham Discovering Miss Dalrymple Happy reading!

"Sexy, unusual, and vastly entertaining. The best historical romance I've read this year." ~ Anna Campbell, author of the Dashing Widows series "A ridiculously wonderful story!" ~ NetGalley reviewer On her 25th birthday, Charlotte Appleby receives an unusual gift: the ability to change shape. Penniless and orphaned, she sets off for London to make her fortune as a man. But a position as secretary to Lord Cosgrove proves unexpectedly challenging. Someone is trying to destroy Cosgrove and his life is increasingly in jeopardy. As Charlotte plunges into London’s backstreets at Cosgrove’s side, hunting his persecutor, she finds herself fighting for her life—and falling in love... "The best historical romance I have read all year." ~ Rachel @ Heroes & Heartbreakers "THIS IS SO FUN. I want to grab people on the street and make them read it!" ~ Goodreads reviewer Length: Full-length novel of 94,000 words Sensuality level: A hot Regency romance with steamy love scenes Q & A with the author How would you describe this series? It's Regency England with a dash of magic. I hope to take readers on a journey from the glittering ballrooms of the aristocracy to the dark underbelly of Regency England – with passion, danger, adventure, romance, and a little magic thrown into the mix. Why did you write this series? I wanted to get my well-bred heroines out of the drawing rooms and put them in the way of adventure and romance. But I didn’t want to write a series where magic is common; I wanted to write a series where only a few characters have magic, and it’s a deep, dark secret, and no one else knows. How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. Who would like this series? This series will appeal to readers who enjoy the historical backdrop of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, the emotion of Mary Balogh and Courtney Milan, and the magic of Patricia Rice and Mary Robinette Kowal. Quite a broad range, really! What order should I read the series in? Each book, whether a novel or novella, can be read as a standalone, but many readers prefer to read them in order. And although the series is set in Regency England, a quartet of medieval novellas form the prequel. The ideal reading order would be: The Fey Quartet (series prequel) Maythorn’s Wish Hazel’s Promise Ivy’s Choice Larkspur’s Quest The Baleful Godmother series Unmasking Miss Appleby Resisting Miss Merryweather Trusting Miss Trentham Claiming Mister Kemp Ruining Miss Wrotham Discovering Miss Dalrymple Plus three more interlinked Baleful Godmother series to come.

She's more than just an heiress... Letitia Trentham is noteworthy for three reasons. One, she’s extremely wealthy. Two, she can distinguish truth from lies. Three, she’s refused every man who’s ever proposed to her. Until Letty receives a proposal she can’t turn down. Icarus Reid barely survived the Battle of Vimeiro. He lives for one thing—to find the man who betrayed him to the French. He doesn’t want to marry Miss Trentham; he wants to use her talent for uncovering lies. Suddenly, Letty finds herself breaking the rules, pretending to be someone she’s not, and doing things a lady would never do. But her hunt for the truth may uncover more than one secret—including the secret that haunts Icarus day and night. The secret he intends to take to his grave... "Unique and romantic and emotional and simply amazing." ~ Ira @ NetGalley Q & A with the author How would you describe this series? It's Regency England with a dash of magic. I hope to take readers on a journey from the glittering ballrooms of the aristocracy to the dark underbelly of Regency England – with passion, danger, adventure, romance, and a little magic thrown into the mix. I think the series could also be labelled Regency Noir, because it falls on the darker, grittier side of the romance fence, although each book contains humor, too. The stories are emotional, but not sweet (there’s sex, violence, and my heroes do swear rather badly at times!). Why did you write this series? I wanted to get my well-bred heroines out of the drawing rooms and put them in the way of adventure and romance. But I didn’t want to write a series where magic is common; I wanted to write a series where only a few characters have magic, and it’s a deep, dark secret, and no one else knows. But ... do magic and Regency England go together? Definitely! Many, many years ago I read Sorcery and Cecelia (or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot) by Patricia Wrede and Caroline Stevermer, and totally loved it and ever since then I’ve thought that Regency England and magic go very well together. Other writers think so, too. Just look at Mary Robinette Kowal's Glamourist Histories and Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. What was the catalyst for this series? A magazine article I read in which celebrities were asked what magic power they’d choose and why. That got me thinking! (I’d choose shapeshifting, by the way.) How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. Who would like this series? This series will appeal to readers who enjoy the historical backdrop of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, the dark and sensual ‘noir’ feel of Anna Campbell, the emotion of Mary Balogh or Courtney Milan, and the magic of Patricia Rice and Mary Robinette Kowal. Quite a broad range, really! What order should I read the series in? Each book, whether a novel or novella, can be read as a standalone, but many readers prefer to read them in order.

She sees things no one else does... Sir Barnaby Ware made a mistake two and a half years ago. A massive mistake. The sort of mistake that can never be atoned for. He knows himself to be irredeemable, but the captivating and unconventional Miss Merryweather is determined to prove him wrong. The daughter of a dancing master and a noblewoman, Miss Merryweather had an unusual upbringing. She sees things no one else sees—and she says things no one else says. Sir Barnaby knows he’s the villain in this piece, but Miss Merryweather thinks he’s the hero—and she is damnably hard to resist... (Resisting Miss Merryweather is a novella of approximately 33,000 words.) Q & A with the author Why did you write this novella? When I finished writing Unmasking Miss Appleby (the first book in the Baleful Godmother series) I was surprised by how sorry I felt for Sir Barnaby. He’d made a dreadful mistake and ruined the most important friendship in his life. I felt Barnaby deserved a chance to redeem himself, and I also felt that he and Marcus (the hero of Unmasking Miss Appleby) needed to be friends again if they were to be truly happy. How would you describe this book? Resisting Miss Merryweather is a novella about friendship, forgiveness, and falling in love. There’s also a little science, and some magic. Although it’s a companion novella to Unmasking Miss Appleby, it can be read as a standalone. How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She's why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you've not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I've also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments.

A forbidden love... Lucas Kemp’s twin sister died last year. He’s put aside his mourning clothes, but not his heartache. If Lucas ever needed a friend, it’s now—and who should walk in his door but Lieutenant Thomas Matlock... Lucas and Tom are more than just best friends; they’ve been in love with each other for years. In love with each other—and pretending not to know it. But this time, Tom’s not going to ignore the attraction between them. This time, he’s going to push the issue. He’s going to teach Lucas how to laugh again—and he’s going to take Lucas as his lover... "Heartbreakingly gorgeous. Tom is the most incredible hero - patient, understanding, passionate, sensitive. Lucas is so proper and stiff, his struggles so very real and poignant. I love Larkin's stories but this one is exquisite." ~ M.C.E. Top 500 reviewer Length: Shorter length novel of 48,000 words Sensuality level: A hot Regency male-male romance with sensual love scenes Q & A with the author Why did you write this book? When Tom and Lucas walked onto the page in Trusting Miss Trentham (the third book in the Baleful Godmother series) I fell in love with them both. I really wanted to know their story—so I decided to write it. I’m very glad I did, because it was so much fun! Lucas is my first ever virgin hero, and I really enjoyed writing his scenes. Claiming Mister Kemp was meant to be a novella, but it grew and grew and grew, until finally I had to admit defeat and call it a (short) novel. How would you describe this book? At its most basic, Claiming Mister Kemp is a friends to lovers romance, but it’s also a story about grief, and about two men finding the courage to love one another in a time when this was punishable by death. I think it’s the most emotional book I’ve ever written. Readers have told me that some scenes make them cry, which I take as a compliment! Claiming Mister Kemp is a Baleful Godmother novel, so both Tom and Lucas have brushes with magic—even if they don’t realize it. And although this book is a companion novel to Trusting Miss Trentham it can be read as a standalone. How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. Who would like this book? This book will appeal to readers who love male-male romances, Regency romances, or both. Fans of KJ Charles, Joanna Chambers, and Cat Sebastian should particularly enjoy it.

Armed with a list of requirements, Kate sets out to find James the perfect wife. But things don’t progress as either of them expect... A Regency romance featuring an earl who needs to marry in a hurry, the spinster he turns to for help, and a list that grows...and grows...and grows. “Utterly delightful friends-to-lovers story.

This spinster is more than she seems . . . Matilda Chapple is penniless, orphaned, and dependent on her uncle’s grim charity—but she’s finally found a way to escape: she’ll write her way to financial freedom. When Mattie pens a series of titillating short stories, she starts earning money . . . and notoriety. Her secret is safe—until Waterloo veteran, Edward Kane, agrees to uncover the anonymous author's identity. Can Mattie conceal the secret of her scandalous writings, or will Edward discover that the virginal spinster and the risqué authoress are one and the same person? A Regency romance with a battle-scarred hero, an enterprising heroine, some provocative tales, and a darkly gothic backdrop. “I can't say enough about The Spinster's Secret. This book straight up touched my heart. It's been a while since I laughed, cried, despaired, and felt one with a character to this extent.” ~ Punya Reviews **The Spinster's Secret is the second book in the Midnight Quill Trio, but may be read as a standalone.** Q & A with the author How would you describe this book? Good question! Um . . . a gothic Regency romance with underlying humor? By gothic, I mean that the setting is gothic: an isolated and gloomy manor with dark, drafty corridors and a miserly uncle. There are nightly readings of ‘improving texts’ and some of the worst food in England! Your hero and heroine are a little unusual. Tell us a bit about them. The heroine, Mattie, is six foot tall—which is a little taller than your average heroine! Edward, the hero, is even taller, and badly scarred from injuries he received at Waterloo. And when I say badly scarred, I mean really badly scarred. Did you do a lot of research for this book? I read two ‘titillating’ novels of the era, Fanny Hill and The Lustful Turk, which were quite ludicrous. The stories Mattie writes are just as silly! How would you describe your writing? Several reviewers have likened my writing to Georgette Heyer, which is the hugest compliment ever. I adore Georgette Heyer! She’s why I write historical romance, and I reread her books over and over. (If you’ve not read The Grand Sophy, please do so!) I’ve also had readers compare my writing to Courtney Milan and Mary Balogh, which are also massive compliments. Who would like this book? This book would appeal to readers who like the historical backdrop and understated humor of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen, the dark and sensual ‘noir’ feel of Anna Campbell, and the emotion of Mary Balogh or Courtney Milan. Have you written any other Regency romances? Quite a few! In fact I’ve just started a new Regency romance series, the Baleful Godmother series.

The notion of Fuzziness stands as one of the really new concepts that have recently enriched the world of Science. Science grows not only through technical and formal advances on one side and useful applications on the other side, but also as consequence of the introduction and assimilation of new concepts in its corpus. These, in turn, produce new developments and applications. And this is what Fuzziness, one of the few new concepts arisen in the XX Century, has been doing so far. This book aims at paying homage to Professor Lotfi A. Zadeh, the “father of fuzzy logic” and also at giving credit to his exceptional work and personality. In a way, this is reflected in the variety of contributions collected in the book. In some of them the authors chose to speak of personal meetings with Lotfi; in others, they discussed how certain papers of Zadeh were able to open for them a new research horizon. Some contributions documented results obtained from the author/s after taking inspiration from a particular idea of Zadeh, thus implicitly acknowledging him. Finally, there are contributions of several “third generation fuzzysists or softies” who were firstly led into the world of Fuzziness by a disciple of Lotfi Zadeh, who, following his example, took care of opening for them a new road in science. Rudolf Seising is Adjoint Researcher at the European Centre for Soft Computing in Mieres, Asturias (Spain). Enric Trillas and Claudio Moraga are Emeritus Researchers at the European Centre for Soft Computing, Mieres, Asturias (Spain). Settimo Termini is Professor of Theoretical Computer Science at the University of Palermo, Italy and Affiliated Researcher at the European Centre for Soft Computing, Mieres, Asturias (Spain)

"Dark and compelling. Emily Gee is a storyteller to watch." --Nalini Singh, New York Times best-selling author The Corhonase citadel is a place of virtue and debauchery--and deadly secrets. For the Laurentine spies embedded there, every day brings danger. Nothing is as it seems, whether in the ballrooms and salons of the nobles' court or the catacombs beneath the citadel. Saliel has many secrets; her spying is one, her past as a pickpocket in Laurent's slums is another, but her most deeply guarded secret is the magic she possesses. She walks a narrow path between discovery as a spy and being burned as a witch. With a sadistic Spycatcher closing in, Saliel and her fellow spies are tested to the limits of their endurance. In the fight to stay alive they must trust each other...or die. Magic may be their only hope of survival. Don't Miss Emily Gee's other books: Thief With No Shadow and The Sentinel Mage
