Susan Carroll is back!

I read The Bride Finder and The Night Drifter a couple of years ago and loved them both. Midnight Bride, which came out in 2001, was her last published book. But just a couple of weeks ago I saw that she has TWO new titles listed on amazon: The Dark Queen (March 29, 2005) and The Courtesan (July 26, 2005). They'll both be out in trade paperback, and I think her writing is worth the price. I already pre-ordered The Dark Queen.

See the absolutely gorgeous covers here:

The Dark Queen blurb : From Brittany’s misty shores to the decadent splendor of Paris’s royal court, one woman must fulfill her destiny–while facing the treacherous designs of Catherine de Medici, the dark queen.She is Ariane, the Lady of Faire Isle, one of the Cheney sisters, renowned for their mystical skills and for keeping the isle secure and prosperous. But this is a time when women of ability are deemed sorceresses, when Renaissance France is torn by ruthless political intrigues, and all are held in thrall to the sinister ambitions of Queen Catherine de Medici. Then a wounded stranger arrives on Faire Isle, bearing a secret the Dark Queen will do everything in her power to possess. The only person Ariane can turn to is the comte de Renard, a nobleman with fiery determination and a past as mysterious as his own unusual gifts.Riveting, vibrant, and breathtaking, The Dark Queen follows Ariane and Renard as they risk everything to prevent the fulfillment of a dreadful prophecy–even if they must tempt fate and their own passions.

I'm so glad to see her publishing again -- I loved the Bride Finder series (just read the first one again a couple of weeks ago). I wasn't such a fan of ... Winterbourne? I think that was the name of it. But these new ones look very interesting. Will have to check them out.
