Heart on his Sleeve…

has been contracted to Ellora’s Cave!

We’re thrilled! *Tosses confetti*

HohS is a medieval. I’d always wanted to write a medieval. Anyone remember all those by Julie Garwood? How about Honor’s Slender? Judith McNaught, before she went contemporary, too? I loved her Kingdom of Dreams?

Mercy, what wonderful books and when I approached Mari with the idea and she said yes. I nearly cried, because this is a genre that has always meant so much to me.

*Tosses more confetti*

((((((((((((((((((((Mari))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) Thank you so much for writing such a good story with me! Waryn and Sibil will always be very special and not just because they’re our first of many!

Until later~

OMG you blogged! yes we have a contract! *caddyshack gopher dance*

I cut my teeth on Historicals too but different authors... Susan King, Karyn Monk, and Elizabeth Elliott were my first few. So of course I would say yes when you tempted me with the idea! they hold a special place in my heart as well. That a publisher accepted one I helped write is just amazing to me!

And looking at the over-flowing "what if" idea folder encompassing so many genres. i can definitely agree it is our first of many.

((((Rissa))))))) thank you for the hard work you put into this one! Sibil adores Waryn, She thanks you very much for granting her, her If Only.

May you always have seductive whispers of the past, sensual pleasures of the present, promising enticement of the future,
and the alluring passion of the unknown.

You two are the best *G* I too love historicals, especially the medievals. Julie Garwood has a couple amazing ones. The "Wedding" and the "Bride" are two that jump to mind.

I can't wait to read it. It feels like ages since I read a good historical. I think I'm suffering from withdrawl.

Congratulations!

I've only read a few Garwoods, but liked them. I don't remember if I've read KoD, but I liked the Velvet books. Were those medieval, though? Maybe not.
