Aubrey: Remnants of Transformation
Aubrey awakens to discover she's barely survived a miscalculated enchantment that turned her into a cat. Kidnapped by unprincipled magicians and exploited by ruthless politicians, she must rely on her own wits and the helping hand of a cool-headed police officer. But his own interest in her may be as personal as it is professional. When magic goes wrong, the complications only multiply.
This unique take on Jane Austen's "Persuasion" records the major events of the novel from the perspective of the novel's nemeses: the scheming Mrs. Clay and the wily Mr. Elliot. Exploring their uneven path to love, "Persuadable" challenges assumptions about class, money, and marriage that still persist two hundred years later. Who says a couple of gold diggers can't find true love?
The Gentleman and the Rake

Then Mr. B, the redeemed rake of Samuel Richardson's scandalous "Pamela," is summoned to court to tell his version of the story. A lively romp through the roots of the modern romance novel!
Mr. B Speaks!
In a world where characters from novels can be tried in real courts for their literary crimes, Mr. B, the famously redeemed rake of "Pamela" (the English language's first true romance novel), must defend himself before a panel of skeptical literary scholars. Can he redeem his good name and win back his wife?
A Man of Few Words
