Seventh Window Publications reissues Xavier Axelson's debut novel, 'Velvet'
Striking New Cover Art by renowned artist, Amber Rendon of Novel Idea Designs, adds to the seductive allure of this spellbinding Historical Romance. Velvet is a novel readers won't soon forget.
The story, inspired by 14th Century Laws of Sumptuary/Apparel, and a velvet shoe pictured in Vogue Magazine, garnered immediate praise from readers and critics.
"For a first book, this one is a success." The Paranormal Romance Guild
"Given the popularity and success of shows such as "The Tudors" and "Game of Thrones," "Velvet" is a refreshing addition to the genre." Edge Magazine
"Mr. Axelson pens "Velvet" a dark medieval fantasy with a balance of drama and romance, in a very well written, totally fascinating plot." My Cozie Corner Book Reviews
In a recent romance blog, Mr. Axelson stated, "by the time I was done writing Velvet, I realized it was a story about loyalty, albeit, blind and painful loyalty but at its core Velvet, to me, is about the price we pay by being loyal. It is also about bullying, obsession, lust, greed and madness…oh yes, and peacocks."
