Mystery Kiss Tallie's Knight Parson's Daughter Gallant Waif
- Happily there are still new Regency authors to be discovered!! (smile) I have discovered several.

*** Sharon Watson, author of "THE PARSON'S DAUGHTER". An e-book by Starlight Writer Publications. Sharon's story is about the inheritance of the younger son - the parson, and how his daughter copes.

*** Kathryn Smith's first book "ELUSIVE PASSION" published by Avon is a story of an attractive rogue and the lady who is posing as his mistress. Kathryn has included Czar Alexander's visit in 1814 and there is also mentions of Kean, Lady Jersey, Princess Charlotte and Princess Caroline. Kathryn said, " What got me started on this book…I guess I like the plots where the hero has a misconception about the heroine - not that she's necessarily not a virgin, but that's she's something other than her true self. And I like strong heroines - women that are going to survive no matter what. Call it a "Gone With the Wind" complex (grin)."

***Dorothy Compton has a new book coming out in April. HONORABLE INTENTIONS is from Awe-Struck Publications and is the story of a marriage of convenience. The Marquess of Burlingale must marry the Cit's daughter or let his family sink into poverty? He never expects his choice to lead to love! Victoria must marry the Marquess or be banished to her hated aunt's home. She insists it must be a marriage of convenience. Once wed to the handsome lord, she wishes his intentions were not quite so honorable. As for him, he long ago regretted the vow he longs to break.

*** Judith Lansdowne's new book THE MYSTERY KISS (4-01) is the first of her traditionals. Judith, "The hero and heroine are older than usual. Fleur is a shipbuilder's daughter who was convinced to marry for a title, was abused by her husband and Society. Hartshire is a widower who thinks that his advanced age is why no other woman other than his first wife an ever love him. It's a bit of a Cyrano story. It's a mixture of love, laughter and suspense." She is also in ONCE UPON A WALTZ anthology (3-01).

*** Anne Gracie, "GALLANT WAIF" will be published in April 2001 as a Harlequin Historical. Before that, TALLIE'S KNIGHT will come out as a Harlequin Readers Choice in March, along with some other Regencies. TALLIE'S KNIGHT is not strictly a regency, being set in 1802-3, during the short lived Peace of Amiens and set largely in Paris and Italy. For those who have been trying to get M&B Historicals, as well as the Readers Choice editions, Harlequin Historicals have picked up a number of regencies from M&B, which is a new thing. If there are particular M&B historical authors or titles you want, ask Harlequin Historicals in Ny. Also you can buy them on the UK amason website http://amazon.co.uk."

***Julie Byrne (SCANDAL AND MISS SMITH a 10-00 Harlequin reissue) will be having a new release in July titled AN INDEPENDENT LADY. Julia is also an Australian M&B author.

***Shannon Donnelly, " My second Regency, A DANGEROUS COMPROMISE, is due out from Zebra in June 2001. Plus I'll have a short story in the AUTUMN KITTENS Anthology from Zebra in October 2001. And UNDER THE KISSING BOUGH is due in bookstores in late 2001. I'll have a Valentine's story out in 2002, and two more Regencies out in 2002!"

***Stephanie Laurens, Victoria Alexander & Rachel Gibson anthology SECRETS OF A PERFECT NIGHT - Once upon a time, three young women each attend a New Year's Eve ball...The moon shone brightly, music filled the air. Kisses were stolen and promises made. But what happens when morning comes?*** Stephanie Laurens, " Although Lucifer (ALL ABOUT LOVE) is the last of the Bar Cynster yet unwed, there are more tales from the Wonderful World of Cynsters to come. In September 2001, comes the Cynster Christmas Special - take a step back in time for the tale of how Devil's parents met and fell in love. This is set in the 1780's, before the French Revolution, in a time when society was just that bit more dangerous and daring. And for those collecting my older works, in April 2001, Harlequin will be reissuing two of my British Regencies in a 2 books-in-1 volume. The two titles are "TANGLED REINS" and "FAIR JUNO". This 2 in 1 volume will be titled "A SEASON FOR SCANDAL".

*** Jo Beverley: "In 2001, there'll be a novella and two novels about three guys called George. Really! They're about the same age, and grew up as neighbors, so they all use different names, but they were all called the patriotic George and there are intersting connections to St. George and the dragon. What's more one of the Georges is Con Somerford, a member of the Company of Rogues, so I'm moving back into that. Anyone who wants to be completely ready for this should be sure to read AN ARRANGED MARRIAGE and AN UNWILLING BRIDE, but especially the latter, because the events of the THE DEVIL'S HEIRESS grow out of that. So, here is what's coming : 12-2000 UNWILLING BRIDE (reissue) Zebra, 3-01 - THE DEMON'S MISTRESS, in IN PRAISE OF YOUNGER MEN, NAL Signet, 3-01, THE DRAGON'S BRIDE, Signet Historical, and 7-01, THE DEVIL'S HEIRESS. I've been especially busy because originally, THE DRAGON'S BRIDE was going to be the final story of this set, but as I wrote it I realized that it had to be the second. So, I had to persuade my publisher to switch the order, and then complete the book very quickly. Jo said, "If you haven't read it yet, there is a page about my trilogy this year, that I'm tagging "Three guys called George". The great thing about these three stories (a novella and two novels) is that they'll be out in March, May and July. No long waits. But you will want to start with "THE DEMON MISTRESS" coming in the anthology "IN PRAISE OF YOUNGER MEN (3-01)."

Once Upon A Waltz Married By Mistake 7 B All About Love
*** Connie Mason,"Julian's story, A BREATH OF SCANDAL, is schediled for March 2001. Julian, a government agent, is hot on the trail of the Jackal, a master smuggler who caused the death of his fiancee. His adventures take him to a Gypsy camp where he meets Lara, a woman for whome he developes a passion even though he's vowed never to love again. A third book, set in Scotland, will follow. Look for A TOUCH SO WICKED early in 2002."

*** Mary Jo Putney, "I'm just starting the third of the historical Bride Trilogy. (Or series? We'll see! The working title is THE BARTERED BRIDE, and it's an adventurous story featuring Gavin Elliott, the Scottish-American merchant and sea captain from THE CHINA BRIDE. He meets his fate in Amy the heroine's daughter from SHATTERED RAINBOWS of my Fallen Angels series. This won't be out till early 2002. The paperback release of THE CHINA BRIDE is scheduled for next August. SILK AND SHADOWS, the first book of my Silk Trilogy, did very well so the second in the series, SILK AND SECRETS, will be out from Signet in November with a lovely new cover. (Both SILK AND SECRETS and the first of the trilogy, VEILS OF SILK, are still in print with the original covers if you read the first book and don't want to wait for the rest of the series.)

*** Wilma Counts, "THE TROUBLE WITH HARRIET" is the sequel to "THE WAGERED WIFE" and is the story of Trevor's brother Marcus, his precocious ward and the troublesome woman with whom he shares guardianship with."

*** Coming up soon from Sandra Hill (February, 2001) will be THE BLUE VIKING. "This is Rurik's story. Rurik was a secondary character in THE BEWITCHED VIKING. Please note that novel marks a new direction for me...Vikings in Scotland. I sure hope you will be pleased. After that will be MY FAIR VIKING. This is Adam the Healer's story; he was a secondary character in THE OUTLAW VIKING and THE BEWITCHED VIKING. This book marks a different direction for me as well since it is a female Viking story. Picture Adam (who is not a small man) being kidnapped by a Viking warrior princess...an Amazon-like woman who is perfectly capable of hoisting my hero over her shoulder and carrying him off to her longship. I describe this book as a combination "My Fair Lady," Pygmalion, Calamity Jane and Xena: Warrior Princess. Laughter is guaranteed. I also have a humorous Christmas anthology coming next October in collaboration with the hilarious Trish Jensen and Kate Holmes (aka Anne Avery). Still on the drawing boards (in other words, not written) are: a sequel to THE LAST VIKING and TRULY, MADLY VIKING, involving the third brother, Magnus; a sequel to THE LOVE POTION, involving Luc's brother, Remy; and a sequel to FRANKLY, MY DEAR and SWEETER SAVAGE LOVE, involving more of the Baptiste family", Sandra reports.

The Blue Viking One Man's Love Elusive Passion  Anne's Perfect Husband
***Deborah Hale, "I have another Regency coming out in June, titled THE WEDDING WAGER. I'll be working on my seventh book for Harlequin Historicals, CARPETBAGGER'S wIFE, and hopefully another Regency or Georgian-era story after that."

***Candice Hern: My historical romance from Avon has been re-scheduled yet again. It is now due to be published in January 2002. The title is yet to be determined. I will post more information when I have it. I will also post the opening chapter as we get closer to publication date."

*** Patricia Bray (Coming in Fall 2001) - Who wants to be a Duchess? Marcus Heywood lives a quiet country life which is turned upside down when he learns that he is the new Duke of Torringford. But his new rank comes with a price, for in order to receive the old Duke's fortune, the new Duke must be married by his thirtieth birthday, which is just four weeks away. Faced with the urgent need for a wife, his younger brother suggests that Marcus place an advertisement for his Duchess, and laughingly pens the ad. But no one is laughing when the advertisement is accidentally delivered to the newspaper, and printed for all to see. Within days Marcus has received hundreds of letters from women eager to become the next Duchess of Torringford. Now all he has to do is choose among them....

***Cathy Maxwell brings us up-to-date: To bring y'all up to date, the third book in the "Marriage" trilogy I've been doing for Avon will be out February 2001. THE MARRIAGE CONTRACT is Anne's story and brings to a close the adventures of three debutantes learning about love. Many of you have been asking after Anne and some have even guessed whom she marries-- Yes, of course, Lord Tiebauld, the Madman of Scotland-the one no debutante wants. It's Anne's task to turn him into a husband . . and so what if he is a more than a little eccentric? All men are at one time or the other. Those little eccentricities are often why we love them. I've signed another contract with Avon and am busy working away on a new book scheduled for 2002 tentatively titled THE SPENDER STUD. We'll see if the title sticks. I'm also excited to be one of the featured authors in an exciting anthology from NAL/Signet titled IN PRAISE OF YOUNGER MEN. It's release date is January 2001. (See? I have been working hard) and besides my tale "A Man Who Can Dance," there are stories by super best-selling writer Jo Beverley, the fantastic Jaclyn Reding, and a new, up and coming talent Lauren Royal. I hope you will add it to your reading list.

Titled "Virtual Warrior" it is the story of Neil from "VIRTUAL DESIRE" who have not only given up on love, but is consumed with the idea he has failed the ones most close to him.

Devil, in his inimitable fashion, reminds Chillingworth that he needs an heir. Chillingworth agrees, but he is adamant about the price he's willing to pay - a simple marriage will achieve the same result - he has absolutely no intention of going to the extremes the Cynsters as a whole seem to find so inescapable. Having seen the fell consequences of what he refers to as the Cynsters' Achilles heel - their apparently inescapable fate of falling deeply in love with women as strong as they are - Chillingworth is more determined than even they were to escape the difficulties of love.

Sea Nymph In Praise of Younger Men Anthena's Conquest To Tame A Wild Heart
One of my old favorite Regency authors is Gail Whitaker aka Gail Crease. Here is what she said recently: "As to my next Regency title AN INNOCENT DECEIT, it's coming out in October with Mills & Boon Historicals. Unfortunately, M&B historicals aren't available over here, which is why there's been no mention of my last two Regencies either. They have to be ordered through Amazon's UK branch, and sometimes, they only list the hard cover version of it which sells for over $20.00! I do want to let Regency readers know I'm not dead!

Phillip's death has shown Arthur that life is precious and short-and that he has never really lived, except in the shadow of others. The guilt he feels for Phillip's death has festered for two years, tormenting him in frequent dreams of Phillip. Arthur believes he turned a blind eye to Phillip's mounting troubles, and actually aided him in his destructive course. After two years have passed, Arthur is ready to explode with a frustration he cannot put down. So when news comes that Phillip's last investment, his last grasp for normalcy-a cattle venture in Scotland-is failing, Arthur goes there to avenge his failures and Phillip's name. He does not anticipate is the unexpected and unwanted company of a woman who drives him mad. Because of her, Arthur embarks on a journey that illuminates the potential for a quality of life he has only dreamed of.

In the course of that trip she is inadvertently thrown into the path of a beautiful stranger who makes her feel desires she has not felt in years. Though they are as far removed from one another's lives as two people possible could be, they share a moment in time in which they fall in love.

But when the world creeps in and events take hold, the differences between them are glaring and seemingly insurmountable, making them question the quality of their lives. Look for an excerpt from The Beautiful Stranger next spring."
