London 1897 and a young girl, Valentine Grey, arrives in England. She's been brought up in the remote and sunny climes of India and finds being forced into corsets and skirts in damp and cold country insufferable. The only bright spot: her exciting cousin, Reggie. Reggie, and his lover Frank seek out the adventure the clandestine bars and streets of London offer and are happy to include Valentine in their secret, showing her theatre, gardens - even teaching her how to ride a bicycle. And then comes the Boer War and Reggie's father volunteers him; the empire must be defended. But it won't be Reggie who dons the Volunteer Regiment's garb. Valentine takes her chance, puts on her cousin's uniform, leaving Reggie behind and heads off to war. And for a long while it's glorious and liberating for both of the cousins, but war is not glorious and in Victorian London homosexuality is not liberating . . .

Be Mine Dead Valentine

... green eyes with the brown flecks dancing in them still sparkled with humor and
his complexion was as youthful as that of a thirty-year-old. Tonight, he was
wearing a pair of grey woolen slacks and a light blue shirt under a dark grey
sweater.

It is a cold, snowy February in Crescent Falls and Adelaide McBride is enjoying the new excitement in her life as two attractive men vie for her attention. But, her joy is short-lived when two murders occur within days of each other, both obviously the work of the same killer who left a Valentine card on each body. When a third victim is found barely alive, it becomes obvious that a serial killer is on the loose. Once again Adelaideês son, Chief of Police Daniel McBride, finds his ability to do his job called into question when there isnêt a speedy arrest. All three victims were young, attractive women and one suspect immediately emerges, but Adelaide believes the man is innocent and decides to start her own investigation. Unexpected twists and turns, including an out-of-town murder and an attack on a local attorney, lead the police and Adelaide down a treacherous path in search of a methodical, cunning killer, whose identity shocks and saddens all the residents of the small, close-knit community.

A Date with Her Valentine Doc

I like to think I can keep my cards pretty close, but something about his intense
grey-blue eyes made me feel exposed, as if all my insecurities and doubts were
lined up on show for his perusal. 'Any further questions?' I asked, with a pert look.

Three rules for dealing with Dr. Matt Bishop, my new boss: No one, least of all Matt, must find out the truth about my being jilted at the altar! Just because Matt inspires some seriously X-rated thoughts, he's my boss and is 100% off-limits. Working on the hospital's St. Valentine's Day Ball with him might sound like fun, but with all these sparks flying around I must remain calm, aloof and professional… But Valentine's Day is nearly here—surely a girl deserves a little fun! What harm could there be in just one kiss…?

Originally published in 1892, "the object of this Handbook is to supply readers and speakers with a lucid, but very brief account of such names as are used in allusions and references, whether by poets or prose writers; - to furnish those who consult it with the plot of popular dramas, the story of epic poems, and the outline of well-known tales. The number of dramatic plots sketched out is many hundreds. Another striking and interesting feature of the book is the revelation of the source from which dramatists and romancers have derived their stories, and the strange repetitions of historic incidents. It has been borne in mind throughout that it is not enough to state a fact. It must be stated attractively, and the character described must be drawn characteristically if the reader is to appreciate it, and feel an interest in what he reads." This work, an American reprint of The Reader's Handbook by E. Cobham Brewer, ..".while retaining all of the original material that can interest and aid the English-speaking student, gives also 'characters and sketches found in American novels, poetry and drama.'"
