Fighting for control of a kingdom that is split into seven
domains, Elven warlords use their human slaves to breed an
endless supply of soldiers for their armies. Dominic Raikes,
the half-blood son of the Elven Lord himself is one such
warrior. Betrothed to Lady Cassandra, who has been raised in
a convent to keep her pure, he little suspects that she's
been secretly trained as an assassin to murder his
fatherâ€¦and him. Dominic and Cassandra soon discover that
each one is not what they seem, but the price of trust may
be their very lives, and the destruction of the magical
realm each is desperately trying to saveâ€¦

Re: The Fire Lord's Lover
Wow, wigs made of feather!
I've never heard of that
before. It's fascinating how
involved the clothing was then
and how much research went
into that one aspect of
writing your novel. I'm
definitely looking forward to
reading The Fire Lord's Lover!

I'm a blue jeans and tshirt kind of girl myself.:)

Hi Jacqueline! So glad you're looking forward to it. Music to my ears. :}
(Kathryne Kennedy 11:31am June 30, 2010)
Same here, Theresa. :}
(Kathryne Kennedy 11:32am June 30, 2010)
Now I know why I don't notice
anachronisms in your work. What
a lot of research you do!
(Pat Hayrynen 2:08pm June 30, 2010)
Wow that is a lot of knowledge about gentlemen's dress in the 18th Century. Are you sure you haven't done a little time travelling to achieve it?
Oh yeah, one other thing - can I try out your list on General Dominic Raikes for myself?
(Ilona Fenton 2:16pm June 30, 2010)
I do try very hard. I hope any mistakes I may make are small enough that they don't interrupt the story. Your comment means a lot to me...thank you so much!
(Kathryne Kennedy 2:24pm June 30, 2010)
Oh, Ilona, Yes! Yes! You may absolutely try it on Dominic! ;}
(Kathryne Kennedy 2:25pm June 30, 2010)
Wow that sounds really good! i can't wait to read it. Good luck with the novel, i hope that it sells well :)
(Nikki McLean 3:08pm June 30, 2010)
What a lovely wish, Nikki. Thanks so much!
(Kathryne Kennedy 3:16pm June 30, 2010)
A lot going on there... maybe less is more! ;) Thanks for a great post!
(Colleen Conklin 4:30pm June 30, 2010)
I'd start with the gloves and then from the top going down. Undressing sounds very layered, but sexy.
(Alyson Widen 4:39pm June 30, 2010)
Wow. Now I'm half way to becoming a valet! :)
By the way, wasn't there a little ice age around that time, hence the need for so many layers?
(S Tieh 4:57pm June 30, 2010)
So interesting! I've had the chance to preview this book and this just makes me want to read it again. It was such a fabulous book!
(Erin Quinn 5:49pm June 30, 2010)
Wow - I've never seen such a great description of their clothing, thank you for that. I read every word, and often I'll skim through long articles, not yours! Thanks again!
(Brenda Rupp 5:51pm June 30, 2010)
Your book sound gooood and i can't wait to read it. Undressing any man is so fun and I feel that it schould be done sloooowww.
(Vickie Hightower 6:14pm June 30, 2010)
That was truely interesting to hear the difference in all the clothing. Your book sounds interesting too.
(Maude Allen 6:43pm June 30, 2010)
Wow given the opportunity to undress an eighteenth century gentlemen I would not say no. Fascinating thank you.
(Mary Preston 6:53pm June 30, 2010)
Heck, with all those clothes, undressing had to be slow!!! Very interesting post, I had no idea.
(Martha Lawson 7:24pm June 30, 2010)
Colleen: My pleasure!
Hi Alyson! Gloves first sounds very nice! :}
Unsure about the ice age, S, but it is very cold in England, so they needed warm clothes.
Hey, Erin! Waving! Thanks for stopping by!
That's so great to hear, Brenda! :}
Thank you, Maude!
Hi Mary! Neither would I. ;}
I manage to get my characters out of them pretty quickly, Martha.
Thanks for all the great comments, ladies. You're the best!
(Kathryne Kennedy 7:51pm June 30, 2010)
Hi Kathryne. Thanks for this tantalizing lesson. Loved hearing about the clothing. Good luck with the book. You're a fabulous writer.
(Anita Clenney 8:10pm June 30, 2010)
I enjoyed your message, but couldn't help thinking about how expensive such a wardrobe would be today and how hard it would be to get a man to wear it.
(Gladys Paradowski 10:10pm June 30, 2010)
Considering all of the research you did for the book to be so authentic, I'm amazed at the complexity of the plot!! It sounds like a great read, and I can't wait to reat it!! This book should give me something new to talk about with my friend from England. He'll wonder where I got these little tidbits from!!
(Peggy Roberson 10:14pm June 30, 2010)
You are very kind, AC. Big hug.
I have to agree, Gladys. It would be like wearing a tuxedo every day...and my fellas would shudder at the thought. :}
I did work very hard on this book, Peggy, and I truly appreciate that you recognize it. Thank you so much for the kind comment.
(Kathryne Kennedy 11:29pm June 30, 2010)
Interesting post. I love little tid-bits.
(Patricia Barraclough 12:30pm July 1, 2010)
Hi Patricia! Good to hear. :}
(Kathryne Kennedy 9:28am July 1, 2010)
I can't wait to read this. It sounds awesome!!!
(Brandy Blake 1:43pm July 1, 2010)
Must be hard work to dress up in those days! I can just picture the undressing scene! Sounds like a great book.
