I’m not sure where the summer is going, but somehow the release day for A Gilded Cage is already here!
Set once more in 1790s Venice, with its licentious Carnevale and gorgeous clothes and masks, the book is a sequel to Carnevale (though either book may be read as a stand-alone). A Gilded Cage is available from Siren-BookStrand here, with a 10% discount until 28th August.
The coffee house to which Perry takes Gilbert is based on Caffe Florian, partly because it was in the right place at the right time, partly because I longed to use a place frequented by such men as Casanova and Byron, but mainly because I couldn’t resist tormenting Gilbert by having ladies present in a coffee shop. The horror!
