So, you've all heard me screaming about STORMWALKER (which I am relieved to say is getting some wonderful reviews all over the place seems to be holding its own), but another Chatelaine has a book out this month!
Gerri Russell's SEDUCING THE KNIGHT came out on April 27 from Leisure.
Winess: The beautiful cover. I have not read this book yet, but the tagline reads: "A Templar knight and a woman he saves from an arranged marriage go on a hunt for the legendary Ark of the Covenant that takes them from the scorching desert of Jerusalem to the heathered highlands of Scotland."
Gerri can let us know whether that tagline is accurate (they aren't always!), but it sounds good! And it's another in her Brotherhood of the Scottish Templars, a series I'm enjoying. Sold me!
I'm always happier promo-ing someone else than myself, because we (especially women) were taught at an early age to always defer to others and be a little self-deprecating (you're a brat if you talk about yourself too much--and I admit, my eyes roll when I'm at a party with someone who talks only about themselves and their success and nothing else...go away now, I really need to get to those nachos.)
However, as authors, it often falls to us to tell the world we have a book out, because no one else will.
I said I was relieved that Stormwalker was getting good reviews and was in the top 25 in romance at B&N and Borders, because STORMWALKER was a shot in the dark for me. It was a little different direction, is nowhere near as erotic as other Allyson James books, Allyson James has nowhere near the "name" as Jennifer Ashley, it has a very small print run, and is a midlist book (not a lead).
So the fact that people are posting about it, and it seems to be selling well in the bookstores is a good thing for my blood pressure. :-)
It really is getting some fantastic reviews (as well as a 4.5 Top Pick from Romantic Times). I won't link to the reviews here, but if you look up Stormwalker by Allyson James on Goodreads, most of them are cross-posted there.
I will also be blogging at the RT blogs as soon as I get my act together and get them the post!!
There you have it: Two Chatelaines books out for the month of May.
And more to come: in JUNE: CINDY HOLBY and EMILY BRYAN have new releases!!
