Weekly Announcements - 7 Nov 09

Blythe Gifford has a title and a date for her next Harlequin Historical. HIS BORDER BRIDE will be released in May of 2010. Set in the 14th century Scottish Lowlands, it continues her "royal bastard" series. The hero, son of an English royal and a Scotswoman, is hated on both sides of the Border. The heroine, daughter of a Scots Border lord, takes him in before she discovers his parentage, and when her father returns from the war, she faces a marriage choice she can't refuse.

Jennifer Mueller's HISTORY LESSONS is now available in print from Phaze.
Ayda Rogers can't believe her luck: she's been invited to a Scottish castle for the summer to research her doctoral thesis. When she gets there she finds with 800 years of history to contend with, where the past is always present. Steamy tales of previous castle owners meld within the modern story as she learns all she needs for her paper. Sometimes it's not the past but the present which makes you change your whole way of thinking, especially when that change comes in the form of the future duke named Hunter.

I keep smiling and laughing and even sighing a while here and there as I keep turning the pages, and by the last page, I feel as if I have struck gold or something. I love this book. I LOVE it.
