Weekly Announcements - 19 Dec 08

Christine Koehler, writing as Isabel Roman, sold to Ravenous Romance. Murder & Magicks is a Victorian-set paranormal that will be released on December 24. Here's the blurb:
For a Victorian lady, losing her virginity means ruin. For Raven Drake, it means freedom to explore her sexuality. As a Magicker in hiding, Raven subscribes to her culture's less prudish philosophy. She wants to experience every erotic sensation imaginable.

Malcolm, Lord Preston, desires her from the moment he sees her, and doesn't allow society's rules to stand in his way. More than happy to introduce Raven to the pleasures of sex, he doesn't expect to fall in love with her.

Their tryst is a welcomed distraction from Witch Hunters and political maneuverings. But can it overcome the weight of another man's ring on her finger?

And if you're interested in a bit of romantic parody, Carrie Lofty posted her chapter of The Italian Gourmet-Baby-Food Baron's Ironically Pregnant Virgin Mistress, which features contributions from bestselling authors Meljean Brook and Ann Aguirre.

Unusual Historicals is on hiatus until Monday, December 29, with the exception of a special excerpt by Jennifer Mueller on Christmas Day. Until then, have a wonderful holiday season, no matter your faith, and take a moment to tell those you love how much they mean to you. Good wishes!
