New & Noteworthy: February 14

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Here is this month's news from our contributors.

Blythe Gifford’s SECRETS AT COURT, the first of two medieval Royal Wedding stories, is a March release from Harlequin Historical. Here's the blurb:
The king’s son has married for love and now, Sir Nicholas Lovayne must persuade the church to bless the union. But Anne of Stamford knows something about the prince’s bride: a secret that must be kept at any cost. Even that of her life. While the hero and heroine are fictional characters, the events in the story are true, and Gifford has taken a close look at a little studied historical mystery of Edward III’s reign. 
Print version is available February 18, and e-book will go on sale March 1.

Michelle Styles has unveiled the cover art for her upcoming novel RETURN OF THE VIKING WARRIOR, which goes on sale at Harlequin Historical this May.

Kim Rendfeld's debut novel THE CROSS AND THE DRAGON recently received two more glowing reviews. Medievalists.net says "Rendfeld skillfully presents what might have been facts, and entertains the reader at the same time." And Melysah Reviews Books says, "This book reminds me of a Nathaniel Hawthorne quote, 'Easy reading is damn hard writing.'"
