Anne here, interviewing Jo Bourne about her long-awaited new book, Beauty Like the Night, the latest in her acclaimed "Spymaster" series. For those who might be wondering, the title comes from Lord Byron:
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies,
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meets in her aspect and her eyes;
The reviews are glowing: All About Romance gave it their coveted "Desert Island Keeper" rating, a glowing review, and summed up thus: "a great read and a terrific addition to what is easily one of the finest series of historical romance novels around."
Romantic Times gave it a "Top Pick" and said: "A grand mistress of romantic espionage returns! With a powerful, suspenseful plot and unforgettable characters, this Spymaster chapter grips you from the opening line with its tale of murder and treason."
Anne: Having read it myself, I heartily concur. Jo, congratulations on the publication of Beauty Like the Night. Readers have been waiting for this for a long time. You must be thrilled to have it out at last.
