However, if there continues to be a demand for a sequel to The Night's Dark Shade then I might consider it. I would send Lady Raphaëlle and her husband on crusade to the Holy Land with King St. Louis and Queen Marguerite. Raphaëlle could get captured by the Moors and see what life is like inside a harem. Someone will rescue her eventually but in the meantime she will rely upon her wits to survive. There will be several other adventures as well. It will be a much longer book.
It would be so much fun to explore something as controversial as the crusades, especially since film makers are intent upon showing them in a totally negative light. It would be exciting to portray St. Louis in his role as crusader, which was a valiant effort but an utter failure. I must say, I am tempted.... Share
