Cover Alert, Christine Trent A ROYAL LIKENESS

I could not help myself even if this already has been posted. I LOVE Christine Trent and I really have been waiting on this one since I first read "The Queen's Dollmaker". I knew Trent would deliver the cover goods, and this one is one lovely cover. I am sorry but I have to point out that I like the headless beauties, it gives me a chance to use my own imagination for her face. I have to say this one is just as beautiful as "The Queen's Dollmaker". I can not wait to get my hands on this one.

Releasing December 28, 2010
"A ROYAL LIKENESS by Christine Trent author of "The Queen’s Dollmaker" and a rising star in historical fiction, crafts a superb romantic novel with a thrilling theme—the true-life exploits of Madame Tussaud and her world-famous wax exhibition.

As heiress to the famous Laurent Fashion Dolls business, Marguerite Ashby’s future seems secure. But France still seethes with violence in the wake of the Revolution. And when Marguerite’s husband is killed during a riot, the young widow travels to Edinburgh and becomes apprentice to her old friend, Marie Tussaud, who has established a wax exhibition. When Prime Minister William Pitt commissions a wax figure of Admiral Nelson, Marguerite becomes immersed in a dangerous adventure—and earns the admiration of two very different men. And as Britain battles to overthrow Napoleon, Marguerite will find her loyalties under fire from all sides.

With a masterful eye for details, Christine Trent brings one of history’s most fascinating eras to life in of a story of desire, ambition, treachery, and courage".

“Winningly original...glittering with atmospheric detail!” —Leslie Carroll, author of Royal Affairs

“Unique, imaginative...replete with delightful details and astounding characters, both real and imagined.” —Donna Russo Morin, author of The Courtier’s Secret

  1. I am so excited for this book to come out!!!

  2. Sounds good, looks wonderful!

  3. Am glad to see I am not the only one who likes the current trent to not show the full faces on covers. The eyes tell you who the person is and that is something you need to discover for yourself.
    Like her last cover, this one is lovely.

  4. I'm glad you like the cover, Liz. Although I can't take much credit for it -- it's all my publisher's doing! :)

  5. Kristin, I am so excited too! It is going to be AWESOME.

    Mystica, this is one I think you would really like also.

    Librarypat, you are so right on the money it is the eyes. I know was the last cover not beautiful I loved the colors.

    Christine, the publishers did a great job Christine and you deserve the credit because I know you would not be cool with some lame ugly cover. I LOVE it, the dress is beautiful. It looks so soft you can almost feel it.
