A woman disgraced by a lie. A beast of a man with a cold heart. Their love will transcend continents. Sabine Goddard is a young woman of high standing raised by her Oxford Don uncle. When a lie destroys her reputation, she and her elderly uncle travel to Turkey to escape the gossip. In Constantinople, she meets Edward, Marquess of Foye, a man hurt by the lie that forced her to leave London. Foye fascinates Sabine. He's outsized and refers to himself as a beast, but he doesn't care that she's better educated than many men. His belief in her innocence intrigues her and earns her admiration. Sabine captivates Foye and the far-from-handsome man can scarcely believe she returns his feelings. When Sabine and her uncle fall into the hands of a Turkish Pasha, Foye will do anything to secure the safety of the woman he loves. Indiscreet moves from Regency England to the exotic locales of Turkey and Syria in the midst of the Napoleonic wars. The winner of the 2010 Bookseller's Best Award for Best Short Historical Fiction, it features fast pacing, simmering chemistry, meticulous research, and strong central characters.

Pedro Almódovar may have helped put queer Iberian cinema on the map, but there are also multitudes of other LGBTQ filmmakers from Catalonia, Portugal, Castile, Galicia, and the Basque Country who have made the Peninsula one of the world’s most vital sources for queer film. Together, they have produced a cinema whose expressions of queer desire have challenged the region’s conservative religious and family values, while intervening in vital debates about politics, history, and nation. Iberian Queer Cinema is a unique collection that offers in-depth analyses of fifteen different films, each by a different director, produced in the region over the past fifty years, from Narciso Ibáñez Serrador’s La residencia (The House That Screamed, 1970) to João Pedro Rodrigues’ O ornitólogo (The Ornithologist, 2016). Together, they show how queer Iberian cinema has responded to historical traumas ranging from the AIDS crisis to the repressive and homophobic Franco regime. Yet they also explore how these films gesture towards a more fluid understanding of sexuality, gender, and national identity. This book will thus give readers a new appreciation for both the cultural diversity of Iberia and the richness of its moving and thought-provoking queer cinema.

The Indiscreet Jewels (Les bijoux indiscrets) is a novel by French author Denis Diderot, first published anonymously in 1748. It tells the story of Sultan Mangogul of Congo who, bored by court life and suspecting his mistress of cheating, comes across a genie who presents him with a magical ring. When rubbed and pointed at the genitals of a woman, the genitals speak, telling of their past experiences. The character of the sultan is based on Louis XV, and the mistress, Mirzoza, is a parable of Madame de Pompadour.
