I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of Xavier Axelson’s
first novel, simply titled Velvet. I have followed Xavier’s writing ever since
his short story, Christmas Eve at the Powers that be Café several years ago, and
ever since, I have been a fan of his work.

As an author of historical fiction, I was intrigued by
promises of what Velvet would be, but also curious to see if he would be able
to do in this larger work what he has done in his shorter works – that is giving
the reader a solid, tight-knit, well written story that keeps his fans turning
the pages and wanting more. I am pleased to announce that Xavier has once again
made good on his promises.

Velvet is the story of Virago who serves in court as the
royal tailor, a position he inherited from his father. His relationship with
Prince Duir has built over the course of his childhood, but when a new fabric
called Velvet comes to the attention of Virago his loyalty to Duir, who has
just inherited the kingdom begins to fray. As Virago becomes obsessed with the
sultry, seductive fabric his unfulfilled secret desires begin to surface. Now
enters Seton a talented flute player who captures the heart of Prince Duir, but
also that of Virago.

Velvet is an intricate story, with even the secondary
characters being intriguing and essential to the story. Velvet is a well-written
romance novel that only Xavier could pull off. His wonderful talent of the
written word flows from the pages much like the notes of a well-played flute. One
of the aspects of Xavier’s writing that I have always admired is the way he can
place ordinary (meaning believable) characters into unique and sometimes unbelievable
situations, and do it so well. 

For anyone who has enjoyed Xavier’s past works, they will
love this one.
