I've been so happy I forgot to post here...but now I must share. On Friday, I received an email from my editor at Ellora's Cave. She offered me a contract on my second book, Seeking Truth.
I'm so excited and happy, I can't tell you. To have one book released and another shortly on the way is a real dream for me. The other thing that's really neat is that this is a medieval romance - one of my favorite kinds of romances to read - when they are done right. By which I mean well researched. I worked very hard to make sure I'd done my research with Seeking Truth and it must have paid off.
I felt lousy this weekend - on Thursday night, I fell down went boom! Ouch! But this was definitely good for my emotional well-being. My contract is winging its way to EC as we speak so I hope I'll be able to get on the docket for a release date soon. When I have a release date...and a cover...I'll let you know!
Here is the current blurb for Seeking Truth...
Pain. Baron Eaduin Kempe has experienced enough of it to last him a lifetime, yet again it stalks him. Judith, his beloved foster mother, suffers in agony which cuts like a blade to his own gut. He'll do anything to ease her pain, even if that means that he, a man of dominant, fierce passions, must marry an innocent, convent-raised healer to obtain her services.
Witch. Lady Vérité de Sauigni fears this accusation more than any other, because of her psychic gift to see truth. A convent should be a haven for service to God, but her father made it her prison. Vérité will do anything to escape, even marry a sensual, handsome man who only wants her for her healing skills.
Vérité's healing skills, though prized in her new home, can't save her from charges of witchcraft when King Stephen and His Court arrive at Kempe Castle. Will Eaduin honor the vow she extracted from him to kill her so she won't suffer under questioning? Or will he do more? Will he risk his life for love?
