Wonderful review for The Duende and the Muse!

Wow - I'm thrilled that fellow Wild Rose Press author Hywela Lyn left me this five-star review for The Duende and the Muse!

This little gem is an absolute delight. It's quite unusual in that it's a first person, present tense narrative, and this gives it an wonderful immediacy. I felt I was right there with Melinda, sharing her frustration that her student doesn't seem to hear her, her anxiety that if she doesn't succeed with him she might lose her muse status – and the heat she feels when a certain duende is near her. Cate Masters puts words together in a way that is almost poetic, and brings the magic of her world to life. It's a delightful, quick and fun read and I can thoroughly recommend it.

Thanks so much, Lyn!
