Top 5 complaints from Julian’s household staff)
Before Julian Fortescue unexpectedly inherited the title of Duke of Denford, he had a single manservant who doesn’t appear in any of my books but whose name is Cumberbatch. (And if you wonder why I just picked that name you are right.) Once he came into both title and money he had to hire a lot more staff for Fortescue House in London and they aren’t all happy.
Monsieur Albert, the French chef
Oo la la dites donc, Monsieur le duc does not appreciate the genius of Albert. The keetchen she is filthy like a peeg sty and the other servants are idiots.
Note: Monsieur Albert quickly departs after a brief appearance in The Duke of Dark Desires. The kitchen becomes more hygienic. Read more

CHRISTMAS IN SCOTLAND (and other places) by Lecia Cornwall
Ah, Christmas in the Scottish Highlands. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it?
My wonderful mother-in-law was Scottish, born in Glasgow. I remember telling her about an ad I’d seen in a magazine, offering a Scottish castle for rent over the holidays. Visitors (up to twenty people) could come and spend a glorious Christmas in the Highlands. My mother-in-law looked at me as if I were daft, and said, “Are you crazy? It’s cold and damp in the Highlands, and those old castles are drafty. You’d never get warm or dry!” Not very romantic, perhaps, but practical. It certainly is easier to enjoy a white Christmas from indoors, by the fire, with good company, a Christmas tree, and a hot drink. Our Christmases with my in-laws here in Canada were always warm and wonderful, and though she might not have welcomed winter in a Highland castle, my mother-in-law brought the best Scottish traditions with her, and never stopped longing to be in Scotland.
