What happens when you take Regency era England, and throw in a mythical 9 tailed fox?
Elizabeth Pendry loves to indulge in reading and fantasy. In fact, she enjoys pretending to visit with the fairies. Little does she know that magic does exist, and that someone hears her when she tells her worries to the fey.
This is a mash up novel that blends the Regency Romance genre with Asian mythology. It was a blast to research and write. It all started when my cousin wanted to give writing story letters another go. She picked the basic setting: the Regency era. Then we drew out some facts that we had to work with out of a hat. My heroine had to have 3 siblings, her parents were dead, and she had to travel to London for the Season. Other than that I could do what I want.
And I have a strong interest in things Asian. (Especially Korea and Japan.) I simply love learning about it. And I uncovered something while researching the Regency era to start this story–they were intrigued by the Orient. So I looked deeper, and according to a census report a very small percentage of Londoners were Chinese.
I started to get really excited about this idea I had. What if a gumiho was in England?
Starting with an enchanting painting that a young man, Simon, uncovers, and moving back and forth in time, this story follows a collection of characters, mostly told through Elizabeth’s point of view.
Elizabeth is your not quite so ordinary young lady. She prefers to read, and loves to pretend that fairies are real. Of course, when faced with the reality that life is often stranger than fiction, she struggles to come to grips with it.
This is a tale of love and redemption.
