I mentioned Anne Stuart's next book in my last post but I wanted to give a little more detail with a book blurb from Stuart's website.
MIRA (November 2007) ISBN: 978-0-7783-2500-0
Behind her mask is a deadly secret...
The powerful head of the covert mercenary organization The Committee, Isobel Lambert is a sleek, sophisticated professional who comes into contact with some of the most dangerous people in the world. But beneath Isobel’s cool exterior a ghost exists, haunting her with memories of another life...a life that ended long ago.
But Isobel’s past and present are about to collide when Serafin, mercenary, assassin and the most dangerous man in the world, makes a deal with The Committee. Seventeen years ago Isabel shot him and left him for dead. Now it looks as if he’s tracked her down for revenge. But Isobel knows all too well that looks can be deceiving...and that’s what she’s counting on to keep her cover in this international masquerade of murder.
Did I do that right?
Sounds good! Isobel appeared in previous books and was an enigmatic character. She appears to be a bit older than the other heroines in this series. I can hardly wait. I want to pre-order but that rarely works out the way it should. I end up getting it faster by just going to the book store and haunting them till they cough it up.
In other news, Harlequin is offering an Anne Stuart Out-of-Print Gems eBook bundle which includes:
Night of the Phantom
One More Valentine
The Soldier and the Baby
I think I probably have all but one of these. I read TSATB and it's a keeper. The other 2 are in the TBR. The price is $15.96 which is kinda steep I think but then it is 4 books.
Her website also mentions that she has written an erotic romance in collaboration with Jennifer Crusie and Eileen Dreyer titled The Unfortunate Miss Fortunes. Can you imagine a book written by Crusie and Stuart? Crusie does light and Stuart does dark. Might be strange. Anyway, it's due out in July 2007.
All of this information is on her website. Just thought I'd share.
