News!


Happy February! As I write it's frosty and cold here in the UK with a wind that is apparently straight from Siberia! So here is some hot-off-the press book news which I hope will warm us all up!

Firstly the UK edition of Unmasked is in the shops this month. Isn't the cover gorgeous (although I did have to look twice to see what the heroine has in her hand - I thought it was a banana rather than a mirror!) I love the covers they are giving my books in both the UK and US! This edition has lots of extra pages giving some historical information about the background and setting, including some fascinating facts about nineteenth century highwaymen - and women!

To celebrate the UK publication of Unmasked and the US publication in March of my new book Kidnapped: His Innocent Mistress (more on that later in the month!) I have a special contest on my website. I'm running it jointly with the very lovely and talented Amanda McCabe whose book To Deceive a Duke is currently in the UK shops and is also available from Mills & Boon online and from Amazon. To Deceive a Duke has the sort of background I love. It's set on an archaeological dig in Sicily! Find out more at Amanda's website and blog, and enter the contest here!
Later this month I'll be sending out my newsletter with another special contest for subscribers only and a feature on the Scottish background to Kidnapped: His Innocent Mistress. So if you love all things Scottish sign up for the newsletter here and look out for this very special competition and feature!
Meanwhile, to get us in the mood for Valentines Day on 14th February, the wonderful Mystic Castle have put together a luscious Valentines video and they are also running a contest!

And as if that wasn't enough, to celebrate their 60th Anniversary, Harlequin are offering a big book giveaway here! The free books showcase the best in each Harlequin line from romantic suspense to historicals. So keep warm this February and curl up with a good book!

Nicola, great cover. Although I too thought it was a banana. Is that a banana in your reticule or are you just pleased to see me? Congratulations on the translatlantic releases!!!!

LOL, Anna! I have to confess that when I pointed out to my editor that the mirror was a rather odd shape she had hysterics!

My copy of your wondeful "Tempt the Devil" arrived yesterday. Can't wait! Never mind the devil, it's certainly tempting me to stop doing my revisions.

I'm not even going to say what I thought it was...

I'm now thinking that perhaps that should have been my website contest question! I'll give a copy of the book to the person who comes up with the most imaginative guess as to what the heroine has in her hand...

Does it have to be printable?

Nicola Cornick said...

Preferably!

LOL, Nicola! It certainly DOES look like a banana--a Gibson Girl with a banana, sigh :)
