Weekly Announcements - 19 Dec 09

Congratulations are in order for Margaret Mallory, who follows up her successful "All the King's Men" trilogy with a brand new four-book contract with Grand Central. This new series will be set in Scotland in the early 1500s. We're all very happy for you, Margaret!

In addition, Margaret is over at the Borders blog talking about "All the King's Men" and giving away two copies of KNIGHT OF PLEASURE. Don't miss your chance!

Early reviews are in for SCOUNDREL'S KISS, the January release from Carrie Lofty. The site Babbling About Books gave it an A- and said, "SCOUNDREL'S KISS has a near epic type feel to it in an exotic land with so many twist and turns. Carrie Lofty is a masterful storyteller who kept me hooked until the very last page. This is one much recommended romance."

Historical Tapestry said, "The era and location are not usual among historical romance or even historical fiction, and from the first pages, I was immediately swept away," and The Historical Novel Review wrote, "They are memorable for their bravery and resilience with each new trial, but even more for the power of their love. Their story was a great pleasure to read and I highly recommend SCOUNDREL'S KISS."

Through Monday, you have the chance to win a copy at The Historical Novel Review. Just stop by and leave a comment.

Join us Sunday when Unusual Historicals will welcome MJ Smith. She'll be talking her WWII-era romance, FOREVER YOURS, and giving away an autographed copy. Don't miss it!

Have a good weekend! Remember, you don't have to be an Unusual Historicals contributor to submit good news to the weekend announcements. If it has to do with unusual historicals, we'd love to shout it out to the world! Send announcements to Carrie. See you next week...
