The Lost Love Song by Book Resume:

Behind every great love song is a great love story. It's been seven years and Diana is finally ready to marry her long-time fiancé, Arie; she's even composing a beautiful love song for him, working on it in hotels and concert halls as she criss-crosses the world as a classical pianist. Before she can finish it, though, tragedy strikes--and Diana is lost to Arie forever. But her song might not be. . . . In Australia, the world has gone quiet for Arie and he lives his life accordingly, struggling to cope with his loss. In Scotland, Evie is taking stock of her life after the end of another lacklustre almost-relationship. Years of wandering the globe and failing to publish her poetry have taken their toll, and she might finally be ready to find what her travels have never been able to give her: a real home. As Diana's song is passed from musician to musician, winding its way around the world, it just might bring these two lost souls together. With heart-wrenching emotion, The Lost Love Song explores what it means to be lost, what it means to be found, and the power of music to bring people together.

Stealing from the Saracens by Diana Darke Book Resume:

Against a backdrop of Islamophobia, Europeans are increasingly airbrushing from history their cultural debt to the Muslim world. But this legacy lives on in some of Europe's most recognizable buildings, from Notre-Dame Cathedral to the Houses of Parliament. This beautifully illustrated book reveals the Arab and Islamic roots of Europe's architectural heritage. Diana Darke traces ideas and styles from vibrant Middle Eastern centers like Damascus, Baghdad and Cairo, via Muslim Spain, Venice and Sicily into Europe. She describes how medieval crusaders, pilgrims and merchants encountered Arab Muslim culture on their way to the Holy Land; and explores more recent artistic interaction between Ottoman and Western cultures, including Sir Christopher Wren's inspirations in the "Saracen" style of Gothic architecture. Recovering this long yet overlooked history of architectural "borrowing," Stealing from the Saracens is a rich tale of cultural exchange, shedding new light on Europe's greatest landmarks.

Beautifully written, engrossing and heartbreakingly funny' Mail on Sunday 'Stylish, funny and daring . . . the clarity and energy of Darke Matter fill you with light' The Times (best summer books) 'Harrowing, funny, tender and nearly always beautifully written' Sunday Times James Darke is dreading the first family Christmas without his wife Suzy. Engulfed by grief, his grudging preparations are interrupted by a persistent knock at the door.

Cassandra Darke by Posy Simmonds Book Resume:

***WINNER OF THE COMEDY WOMEN IN PRINT PRIZE 2020*** 'Simmonds is a copper-bottomed genius... she is as brilliant a writer as Britain has' Jenny Colgan, Mail Online Cassandra Darke is an art dealer, mean, selfish, solitary by nature, living in Chelsea in a house worth £7 million. She has become a social pariah, but doesn't much care. Between one Christmas and the next, she has sullied the reputation of a West End gallery and has acquired a conviction for fraud, a suspended sentence and a bank balance drained by lawsuits. On the scale of villainy, fraud seems to Cassandra a rather paltry offence - her own crime involving 'no violence, no weapon, no dead body'. But in Cassandra's basement, her young ex-lodger, Nicki, has left a surprise, something which implies at least violence and probably a body . . . Something which forces Cassandra out of her rich enclave and onto the streets. Not those local streets paved with gold and lit with festive glitter, but grimmer, darker places, where she must make the choice between self-sacrifice and running for her life.

"Passionately satirical and sharply observant, he is one of the most interesting of our playwrights" (Sunday Telegraph) The Dead Monkey - "Darke has something both hilarious and horrific to say about the decay of a marriage and he compels the attention while doing so." (Sunday Telegraph) The King of Prussia - "A meaty play...seethes with life, wit and ideas. Darke give shape to a Cornish identity that feels vital and real and has nothing to do with clay pipes and clotted cream. Like Cornwall's coves, it has many unexpected depths...It also raises questions about the points where justice, conscience and the law part company" (Financial Times) The Body - "The best moments in Nick Darke's play are extremely good - and not all good in the same way...the most obvious debt is to Brecht. There are other reminiscences of Auden and Isherwood's The Dog Beneath the Skin, of Tom Stoppard's After Magritte and of T.S Eliot's verse plays." Tin Tang Mine - "A lament for an industry and a way of life; but this should not suggest anything sentimental. The writing is rugged and muscular; lyrical but not ornate; vigorous but not folksy...oddball, quirkily parochial and as authentic as a slice of rough bread." (The Times)

Darke Hierogliphicks by Stanton J. Linden Book Resume:

The literary influence of alchemy and hermeticism in the work of most medieval and early modern authors has been overlooked. Stanton Linden now provides the first comprehensive examination of this influence on English literature from the late Middle Ages through the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Drawing extensively on alchemical allusions as well as on the practical and theoretical background of the art and its pictorial tradition, Linden demonstrates the pervasiveness of interest in alchemy during this three-hundred-year period. Most writers—including Langland, Gower, Barclay, Eramus, Sidney, Greene, Lyly, and Shakespeare—were familiar with alchemy, and references to it appear in a wide range of genres. Yet the purposes it served in literature from Chaucer through Jonson were narrowly satirical. In literature of the seventeenth century, especially in the poetry of Donne, Herbert, Vaughan, and Milton, the functions of alchemy changed. Focusing on Bacon, Donne, Herbert, Vaughan, and Milton—in addition to Jonson and Butler—Linden demonstrates the emergence of new attitudes and innovative themes, motifs, images, and ideas. The use of alchemy to suggest spiritual growth and change, purification, regeneration, and millenarian ideas reflected important new emphases in alchemical, medical, and occultist writing. This new tradition did not continue, however, and Butler's return to satire was contextualized in the antagonism of the Royal Society and religious Latitudinarians to philosophical enthusiasm and the occult. Butler, like Shadwell and Swift, expanded the range of satirical victims to include experimental scientists as well as occult charlatans. The literary uses of alchemy thus reveal the changing intellectual milieus of three centuries.

Sometimes even destiny needs a little bit of help . . . When childhood sweethearts Justine (Sagittarius and serious skeptic) and Nick (Aquarius and true believer) bump into each other as adults, a life-changing love affair seems inevitable—to Justine, anyway. Justine works at the Alexandria Park Star, and Nick—she now learns—relies on the magazine's astrology column to guide him in life. Looking for a way to get Nick's attention, Justine decides to make a few small alterations to the Aquarius copy before it goes to print. But, of course, Nick is not the only Aquarius making important life choices according to what is written in the stars, and the doctored horoscopes end up reverberating throughout the lives of the column's devoted readers as well as those who cross their diverted paths. Spanning a year—as Earth moves through all twelve star signs—and charting the ripple effects of Justine's astrological meddling, Star-Crossed is a delicious, intelligent and affecting love story about fate, chance and how we all navigate the kinds of choices that are hard to face alone.

Released from prison after serving his sentence for the assisted death of his wife, his health failing and his chronic impatience exacerbated, Dr James Darke self-isolates. But on his return he understands that he is now a displaced person, lost in a new world for which his education and inclinations have not prepared him. Irascible, misanthropic, intensely bookish, fastidious in his tastes and rich enough to indulge them, Darke is a happy shut-in, busily writing oppositional pamphlets and composing a literary hoax. But his daughter and the Bulgarian housekeeper she hired to look after him have other ideas. After Darke is a moving, witty reflection on grief, ageing and love in all its forms, and James Darke is one of the most memorable, exasperating yet loveable characters of contemporary fiction.

The Wild Prince by Edwina Darke Book Resume:

In this modern Parisian fairytale, a Beastly Prince is out to conquer a defiant Beauty. But the only way for him to win is unconditional surrender. Mary Chase can handle anything. Working as a manager/fixer/circus ringmaster for Rising Starr Talent Agency’s most difficult clients has given her an extensive education in problem solving. Stolen tour bus? Activate the LoJack. Overly intrusive paparazzi? Set the superfans on them. Find a lynx roaming a hotel room? Call animal control and down a shot of tequila. But when Mary’s next client turns out to be her boss’s godson, the Wild Prince, her hard earned skills are pushed to the limit. Dominic Prince knows what the world thinks of him—that he’s wild, that he’s reckless, that he’s got a uncontrollable temper. He also knows better than to care. But when coming to his future sister-in-law’s defense lands him in trouble with both the press and the police, suddenly everyone expects him to change. Dominic is prepared to put up with the babysitter his family have saddled him with. But if they think she’s going to tame him, they have another thing coming. Sparks fly when the woman who can handle any problem meets the man who refuses to be solved and the heat between surprises both of them. Mary finds in Dominic a man capable of climbing her walls. And Dominic has finally met a woman who can beat him at his own game. But as their relationship deepens, their time together begins to run out. Will Dominic be able to convince Mary they’re meant to be more than temporary? Or will she be gone before the last mid-winter rose petal falls? Author's Note: Enemies-to-lovers has always be one of my favorite romance tropes. So I was looking forward to tackling it within the Prince family. Plus adding in all my favorite Beauty and the Beast elements: a Parisian house covered with roses, a gorgeous gold dress, a couple of quirky caretakers, and best of all, a seriously rocking library. When I planned this series, Dominic was supposed to wait his turn until book five or six. But the pushy Prince shoved his way to the front of the line. His and Mary’s story just ran away with me. I hope they run away with you too.

The Ice Prince by Edwina Darke Book Resume:

In this modern Manhattan fairytale, Prince Charming is the one conning Cinderella… Cynthia Swan knows that her life isn’t a fairytale. Living in Manhattan while working long hours as an intern veterinarian by day and waiting tables at night to make ends meet has knocked the fairy dust out of her eyes. But on her way home from working an Upper East Side cocktail party Cyn meets Cameron. Prince Charming might not exist, but allowing herself one night with a charming personal trainer couldn’t hurt anything. Cameron Prince, CEO of Prince Enterprises, has always been skeptical about happily ever after. His father is on his eleventh divorce. If there’s one thing that has taught Cameron: it’s that being a billionaire brings a world of opportunities, but it makes love doubly hard to find. But one night he comes to the aid of a beautiful woman who mistakes him for a down-on-his-luck personal trainer. It seems harmless to let the fantasy play out, it’s only for one night and after all there’s no such thing as forever. But neither Cyn nor Cameron are satisfied with just one night. For the first time he gets to be himself with a woman without all his family baggage and she’s finally found a man she can trust with her wounded heart. But as Cyn opens up and Cameron starts to think about forever, what began as an innocent case of mistaken identity becomes a guilty weight around his neck. Will Cameron be able to convince Cyn he’s still worthy of her love and trust once she learns of his lies? Author's Note: Recipe for THE ICE PRINCE - Take a secret billionaire hero. Add an everyday girl heroine. A pinch of mistaken identity. A dash of one night stand. Season with a couple of quirky cats, a bunch of nosy family members, and a singing strip-o-gram with a memorable confetti climax. Finished with a heavy sprinkle of snarky, snarky banter. Steam Level: Sizzling. Shenanigan Level: Extreme. Feels: Big time. THE ICE PRINCE is part of Edwina Darke’s family saga The Princes of Manhattan series. While it can easily be read as a stand-alone story, you'll likely enjoy reading the other books too.
