Many historical fiction novels are well-researched but it takes a good writer to soften the facts with images that are so vivid it’s like watching a movie. Claudia Long’s latest novel, The Duel for Consuelo, does exactly that. Consuelo is a real woma...more

“How is it that you're such an expert on home pregnancy kits?"
You're asking that question of an Italian stallion like myself? The women call me 'sperm of thunder'. I don't dare stand too close for fear I may impregnate them with just a whiff of my manhood.”
