03): Shéa MacLeod
After what can only be described as a momentous year, vampire bounty hunter Morgan Bailey is looking forward to a nice, quiet birthday. But fate has other plans.

But this is no ordinary fairy; he is as powerful as he is psychotic. And considering the supernatural nutjobs Morgan has dealt with in her time, that's saying something. To take him down, Morgan forms an uneasy alliance with the Fairy Queen and embarks upon her most outrageous adventure yet. But in the midst of the chaos, Morgan realizes there is more to this sidhe than meets the eye. And if she fails, if he achieves his endgame, it will trigger devastation unlike anyone - or anything, human or otherwise - has ever seen.

Paris, 1927. One day in July, a young American named Rafaela Fano gets into the car of a coolly dazzling stranger, the Art Deco painter Tamara de Lempicka.

The two become lovers, and Rafaela inspires Tamara's most iconic Jazz Age images, among them her most accomplished - and coveted - works of art.

And all the while, their romantic idyll is threatened by history's darkening tide. A tour de force of historical imagination, The Last Nude is about genius and craft, love and desire, regret and, most of all, hope that can transcend time and circumstance.

I wanted to follow her, feel what she felt; I thought that I might find myself absolved. Maybe I would get some. Somewhere in me was a cheerful voice assuring me that what this needed was our getting laid.
