Happy Friday everyone. My apologies to the author, Marion Grace Woolley, today as I was to have a review of her novel Those Rosy Hours at Mazandaran but due to dental woes I was unable to finish up my reading. I do however have to say that I love the cover first of all and secondly this is a dark and enticing novel sure to appeal to Gothic fans. I love anything dark so be sure to watch for my review soon. In the meantime I’m going to spotlight the book for you and be sure to enter for a chance to win a copy for yourself.

About the Book
It begins with a rumour, an exciting whisper. Anything to break the tedium of the harem for the Shah’s eldest daughter. People speak of a man with a face so vile it would make a hangman faint, but a voice as sweet as an angel’s kiss. A master of illusion and stealth. A masked performer, known only as Vachon. For once, the truth will outshine the tales.
On her eleventh birthday, Afsar’s uncle tries to molest her, and her father, the Shah, gifts her a circus. With the circus comes a man who will change everything. Inspired by Gaston LeRoux’s The Phantom of the Opera, Marion Grace Woolley takes us on forbidden adventures through a time that has been written out of history books.
