From authors and publishers,

The Rose of York: Fall from GraceThe Rose of York: Fall from Grace by Sandra Worth, signed copy

"Defying Shakespeare'ss portrayal of Richard III, this prize-winning, well-researched novel concludes the ROSE OF YORK series -- winners of a notable ten awards. Set in Malory's England, it traces Richard's remarkable reign, his passion for justice, and his undying devotion to Anne, and delves into the still-unresolved mystery of his nephews' disappearance. A stirring saga of courage, sacrifice, and love".

Penelope's DaughterPenelope's Daughter by Laurel Corona

The award-winning author of The Four Seasons retells The Odyssey from the point of view of Odysseus and Penelope's daughter.

":With her father Odysseus gone for twenty years, Xanthe barricades herself in her royal chambers to escape the rapacious suitors who would abduct her to gain the throne. Xanthe turns to her loom to weave the adventures of her life, from her upbringing among servants and slaves, to the years spent in hiding with her mother's cousin, Helen of Troy, to the passion of her sexual awakening in the arms of the man she loves.

And when a stranger dressed as a beggar appears at the palace, Xanthe wonders who will be the one to decide her future-a suitor she loathes, a brother she cannot respect, or a father who doesn't know she exists.."

The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig

"Nothing ever goes right for Eloise. The day she wears her new suede boots, it rains. When the subway stops short, she's the one thrown into some stranger's lap. And she's had her share of misfortune in the way of love. So, after deciding that romantic heroes must be a thing of the past, Eloise is ready for a fresh start.

Setting off for England, Eloise is determined to finish her dissertation on two spies, the Scarlet Pimpernel and the Purple Gentian. But what she discovers is something historians have missed: the secret history of the Pink Carnation-the most elusive spy of all time. As she works to unmask this obscure spy, Eloise has more and more questions. Like, how did the Pink Carnation save England from Napoleon? What became of the Scarlet Pimpernel and the Purple Gentian? And will Eloise Kelly escape her bad luck and find a living, breathing hero of her own"?

  1. Gorgeous covers for "Rose of York" and "Penolope's Daughter." Everyone either seems to love or hate "Secret History of the Pink Carnation." I'll look forward to that review!


  2. I want to read the Sandra Worth Richard III trilogy very much! I've had all three on my PBS list for almost a year and I'm still only about half way through the list of people wishing for it!

  3. I loved Pink Carnation and mad I haven't been able to continue the series due to commitments. Enjoy all of your lovely books. and have a great week.

  4. Penelope's Daughters is the one I am looking out for!

  5. Pen and paper, I guess it was a week of to die for covers. I agree it is a love hate thing I noticed with the Carnation Series. I do have a treat up my sleeve on Lauren Willig which you will just have to wait and see. I do love her covers.

    Robinbird, I hate that I am have like 50 books I am in that position for it is so frustrating. I really need the older reprint of Murder Most Royal by Jean Plaidy. Once I get that I have 2 whole series of JP. So far it has taken half a year to make it through 8 people. I HATE that!!!

    Jenny Girl, I have to admit I have started it and had to put it back down due to other commitments but this time I am not going that route. This time I will not let it escape my grasp.

    Mystica, I am not surprised it is a unique story, one that not many others have touched on. I love Laurel Corona she is the sweetest person ever I can not wait to post my review. I am hoping to get a giveaway for it also.

  6. Lovely new cover for PINK CARNATION. My copy is still on my TBR shelf. My daughter read it.
    THE ROSE OF YOUR and PENELOPE'S DAUGHTER are two good books from what I have heard.

  7. Pat I have heard the same thing both are good and I accepted the Pink Carnation arc because I have been meaning to read it but have not been able to fit it in so now I am doing it. I am going to read it next after Penelope's Daughter.
