Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Acclaimed for her sensual, emotionally powerful historical romance novels, Bertrice Small has won a special place in readers' hearts for creating bold, beautiful women who take what they want from life — and from men — with lusty enjoyment. In Vixens, she introduces the three great-great granddaughters of Small's legendary heroine, Skye O'Malley — three cousins caught up in the tumultuous world of political intrigue and sexual scandal in mid-seventeenth-century London.

Mistress Frances Devers, called Fancy, is the youngest child of Fortune and Kieran. Fancy has arrived in England from Maryland, with a cloud of suspicion hanging over her head. It is rumored she killed her husband shortly after their wedding.

Lady Diana Leslie, the daughter of Patrick and Flanna Leslie (the hero and heroine of Small's Just Beyond Tomorrow), has been nicknamed Siren by the gentlemen of the court. WhiTe Fancy appears to be bitter and brazen and Cyn, cold-hearted and adventurous, Siren is renowned for her sweetness. Her charm and generosity drive men to fight forbidden duels over her. It has become an open scandal at court, especially as the Duke of Roxley and his identical twin brother, the Marquis of Roxley, are both pursuing the lovely Siren, with marriage on their minds.

Lady Cynara Stuart, nicknamed Cyn, is the daughter of Charlie, the illegitimate Stuart offspring, and his second wife. As the hot blood of the Stuarts courses in her veins, Cyn dances her way through life, heedlessly breaking hearts as she goes, completely unconcerned with finding a husband or settling down.

About the Author

Bertrice Smallhas written thirty novels of historical romance and two erotic novellas. She is a New York Times bestselling author and the recipient of numerous awards. In keeping with her profession, Bertrice Small lives in the oldest English-speaking town in the state of New York, founded in 1640. Her light-filled studio includes the paintings of her favorite cover artist, Elaine Duillo, and a large library—but no computer as she works on an IBM Quietwriter 7. Her longtime assistant, Judy Walker, types the final draft. Because she believes in happy endings, Bertrice Small has been married to the same man, her hero, George, for thirty-eight years. They have a son, Thomas, a daughter-in-law, Megan, and two adorable grandchildren, Chandler David and Cora Alexandra. Longtime readers will be happy to know that Nicki the Cockatiel flourishes along with his fellow housemates, Pookie, the long-haired greige and white, Honeybun, the petite orange lady cat with the cream-colored paws, and Finnegan, the black long-haired baby of the family, who is almost two.
