ABOUT THE ITEM:
DAUGHTER OF MYSTERY
Margerit Sovitre did not expect to inherit Baron Saveze’s fortunes—even less his bodyguard, a ruthlessly efficient swordswoman known only as Barbara. Wealth suddenly makes Margerit a highly eligible heiress and buys her the enmity of the new Baron. He had expected to inherit all, and now eyes her fortune with open envy. Barbara proudly served as the old Baron’s duelist but she had expected his death to make her a free woman. Bitterness turns to determination when she finds herself the only force that stands between Margerit and the new Baron’s greed.
THE MYSTIC MARRIAGE
Antuniet Chazillen lost everything the night her brother was executed. In exile, she swore that treason would not be the final chapter of the Chazillen legacy in Alpennia’s history. A long-hidden book of alchemical secrets provides the first hope of success, but her return to the capital is haunted by an enemy who wants those secrets for himself.
MOTHER OF SOULS
Serafina Talarico came to Rotenek hoping Margerit Sovitre could teach her how to use her talent for thaumaturgy. It’s only when Serafina collaborates with aspiring composer Luzie Valorin that she begins to find her path. As an Ethiopian immigrant in Rome, Serafina never found a place to belong; has she found one now among Margerit’s circle of scholars, inspired by legends of the ancient philosopher Tanfrit?
