Four of Wiggs long, long, long out of print historicals are getting reprinted in 2009. The slight downside to this joyous news, is that three of the four reprints will have different titles. Sigh. I hate when publishers do that. Oh well. It's still not annoying enough to damper this exciting news, since - like I said - all of these titles have been out of print for ages. Here's the breakdown of plot descriptions, publication dates, along with new titles. Enjoy!
Lord Of The Night, June 2009, No New Title.
When a crime was committed in tumultuous sixteenth-century Venice, Sandro Cavalli, Lord of the Night, could be counted upon to bring the malefactors to justice. Strong and rough-hewn as noble oak, his inborn code of morality was strong as his mighty shoulders. Nothing and no one could sway him from his duty.Circle In The Water, August 2009, New Title = At The King's Command
No one until Laura Bandello. She was a woman of lustrous beauty and disarming charm. Yet why did Laura know so much about the problems plaguing Venice? Could someone so fair, so innocent, be involved in a shocking plot?
The only thing Sandro knew for certain was that he wanted this woman more than anything he had ever wanted in his life - even if it meant sacrificing everything he held dear.
Never one to forget a slight, King Henry VIII sough revenge against Stephen de Lacey, the handsome and defiant Baron of Wimberleigh. When a gypsy horse thief interrupted the king's daily hunt, Henry saw a way to bring the insolent nobleman to heel - he gave Stephen a choice of marrying the brazen wench or watching her hang.Vows Made In Wine, September 2009, New Title = The Maiden's Hand
Stephen wanted nothing to do with his unwelcome gypsy bride, even when he realized Juliana was a princess from a far-off land, fleeing the fires of a deadly uprising. But with each day, she moved closer to his heart - and to the secret that could destroy him.
A mysterious force from Juliana's past threatened the life they had built. It was then they knew that together they could overcome all odds.
Oliver de Lacey had no time for love. he pursued pleasure with relentless fervor. Then one day, he met a woman who changed his wild ways.Dancing On Air, October 2009, New Title = At The Queen's Summons
Mistress Lark had no need for passion. All her devotion went into a secret cause she embraced with her whole heart. Until she met Oliver de Lacey.
Pippa invented a past for herself, because anything was better than facing the truth. But when her antics led her into serious trouble, she had to throw herself at the mercy of a powerful Irish chieftain.These aren't listed on Amazon yet, but if you check out Wiggs' bibliography (scroll all the way to the bottom of the page!), it looks like Harlequin/Mira is planning on reprinting a lot more of Wiggs' long out of print historicals! Yippeee! Great news for historical fans everywhere, because her historical backlist is filled with a fine variety of settings and locales.
Aidan's world was crumbling beneath him. He went to London to seek mercy from the queen. Instead, he found an entrancing, mysterious woman who would alter his dreams and change his life forever.
And for the record: Yeah, those four copies pictured above belong to yours truly. I amassed all of Susan Wiggs' historicals ages ago. Have I read them all? Golly, of course not! After all, I'm the Queen Of Having Great Books In My TBR That I Haven't Gotten Around To Reading Yet. Just ask KristieJ, who nags me incessantly every time I see her live and in person. Love ya girlie!
