Backlist Love (2)

I LOVE that you guys loved the "Backlist Love" idea, so here's some more in the series for ya!
I heartily recommend these 3 books, so if you read them, I'd love to hear your thoughts!




THE BOOKS:

A Curse Dark as Gold
Charlotte Miller has always scoffed at talk of a curse on her family's woolen mill, which holds her beloved small town together. But after her father's death, the bad luck piles up: departing workers, impossible debts, an overbearing uncle. Then a stranger named Jack Spinner offers a tempting proposition: He can turn straw into gold thread, for the small price of her mother's ring. As Charlotte is drawn deeper into her bargains with Spinner-and a romance with the local banker-she must unravel the truth of the curse on the mill and save the community she's always called home.



Magic Under Glass
Nimira is a music-hall performer forced to dance for pennies to an audience of leering drunks. When wealthy sorcerer Hollin Parry hires her to do a special act - singing accompaniment to an exquisite piano-playing automaton, Nimira believes it is the start of a new life. In Parry's world, however, buried secrets stir.
Unsettling below-stairs rumours abound about ghosts, a mad woman roaming the halls, and of Parry's involvement in a gang of ruthless sorcerers who torture fairies for sport. When Nimira discovers the spirit of a dashing young fairy gentleman is trapped inside the automaton's stiff limbs, waiting for someone to break the curse and set him free, the two fall in love. But it is a love set against a dreadful race against time to save the entire fairy realm, which is in mortal peril.



Sunshine
There are places in the world where darkness rules, where it's unwise to walk. But there hadn't been any trouble out at the lake for years, and Sunshine just needed a spot where she could be alone with her thoughts. Vampires never entered her mind.

Until they found her...

  1. Oh yes... vaguely remember thinking I needed to snag A Curse Dark As Gold after something you said a while back. Jaclyn Dolomore in general is an author I was meaning to try.

    But Sunshine, that's my first intro to it.

    Thanks a bunch!

  2. Thanks for the recommendations! I really enjoyed A Curse as Dark as Gold, on many levels. So I'm thinking the other two will be happy-makers, too. :)
