Laura Joh Rowland Website Update


Laura Joh Rowland's website (http://www.laurajohrowland.com/) has been updated with news about her latest book, "Bedlam: The Further Secret Adventures of Charlotte Bronte," due to be released in May 2010.

1851. Victorian England enters its golden age of prosperity and worldwide power. Charlotte Brontë has revealed herself as the best selling author of Jane Eyre and is the toast of literary London. Yet she yearns for her true love John Slade, the dashing secret agent, whom she hasn't seen or heard from in three years. While researching topics for her next novel, she tours Bedlam, the notorious London insane asylum, and glimpses a wild, raving madman. It's Slade--or so it seems, even though Charlotte thought he was in Russia on assignment. When she goes back for a closer look, she learns that the madman has escaped and two nurses have been savagely murdered. Was the madman really Slade? Is he also the killer? Charlotte begins a search for Slade. It takes her from his superior at the Foreign Office, who says he's a traitor, to the slum of Whitechapel, where a murderer akin to Jack the Ripper stalks the streets, from Ireland to France, and from Bedlam and Newgate Prison to the Great Exhibition in London. She clashes with Queen Victoria and Wilhelm Stieber, the famous Prussian spy. Her quest leads her to the reunion of her dreams with Slade, and a stunning discovery: a secret that could determine the outcome of a war between England and Russia, its political rival--or destroy the world.

New Release from Victoria Alexander


Now, in time for the holidays, a classic returns: Believe, by Victoria Alexander.

In Victoria's own words:
Dear Readers,

Believe was one of those books I had wanted to write for a long time.

It's the story of a relatively rational, thoroughly modern woman who doesn't believe in myths or magic. Until she meets a legendary knight in a time long ago and learns love is the greatest magic of all.

First released in 1998, Avon has given it a fabulous new cover. And I've added a little bit of Christmas. Because, after all, what better time of year than the holidays is there to Believe?

All the best,
Victoria

FULL-TIME DAD, FIREFIGHTER ... PART-TIME BABYSITTER?

Tasmanian police Sgt. Charlie Banes’ rush to save his friends and end a killing spree is a race against time through the eucalypt forests of Tasmania’s east-coast highlands.

Pamela Ford's New Look and New Book!


Pamela Ford invites you to come and visit her new web site.


She has an all-new look to celebrate the release of her October Super romance from Harlequin, THE WEDDING HEIRESS.


Blurb: Who’d have thought that Delaney McBride would come back to her Wisconsin hometown—where Mike Connery still lives!—to plan weddings? Not Delaney, the upwardly mobile career woman who doesn’t believe in storybook endings. Certainly not Delaney, the insecure teenager who never got over her girlhood crush on Mike.
If it weren’t for her inheritance, Delaney would be so out of there, as far away from the irresistible-as-ever man as she could get. But it’s either take over her great-aunt’s wedding-planning business or lose everything. So here she is, creating happy endings for real-life Cinderellas while still secretly pining for Mike. At the rate she’s going, Delaney’s heading straight for happily never after. Unless—is it possible?—the single father is just as secretly pining for her.…

4-1/2 STARS! “Enhanced by a mystery, THE WEDDING HEIRESS is a fast-paced and fun novel. Full of zany characters and a few mishaps, it’s a delight.”
