Keeping the Castle
by Patrice Kindl
June 14th, 2012

Seventeen-year-old Althea is the sole support of her entire family, and she must marry well. But there are few wealthy suitors--or suitors of any kind--in their small Yorkshire town of Lesser Hoo. Then, the young and attractive (and very rich) Lord Boring arrives, and Althea sets her plans in motion. There's only one problem; his friend and business manager Mr. Fredericks keeps getting in the way. And, as it turns out, Fredericks has his own set of plans . . . This witty take on the classic Regency--Patrice Kindl's first novel in a decade--is like literary champagne!

 Madly is your average nearly-eighteen year old girl—for a princess, that is.

Madly James is thoroughly enjoying her internship in the small town of Slumber when the unthinkable happens—there’s a prison break in Atlas, the magically-protected home of Madly’s race. A traitor has set free eight Lore, the spirits of what humans know as fairy tales, and they are making their way to Slumber to awaken their descendants.

In order to save her home, the lives of her family, and all of humanity, Madly must learn to wield her exceptional powers and recapture the Lore before it’s too late and all is lost. But Madly’s only help are her two best friends and the Sentinel, Jackson Hamilton, that threatens both her heart and her destiny. Madly has loved Jackson as long as she can remember, but he is the one thing even a princess can’t have. Can she resist love to become the queen she was fated to be? Or can she find a way to have both?


  1. Nice choices! That cover for Madly looks beautiful! I really do love fairy-tale stories, so this is gonna go on my TBR list. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Wow, the cover for Madly looks so beautiful! *adds to TBR pile* And since I adore anything that has to do with castles and monarchies, I really love the sound of Keeping the Castle too! Even though the cover may not be as stunning, it still has this simply beautiful look to it that I like.

    And I LOVE your button for this meme, Joie! I hope you have an amazing Wednesday! :) <3

  3. I just bought Madly for my Kindle yesterday! Can't wait to read it. Keeping the Castle sounds awesome as well.
