Various Ramblings At H&H
I've had two First Looks go live, both historicals. There's Deeanne Gist's latest inspriational historical, Fair Play which features a Texas Ranger hero, a doctor heroine, and the backdrop of the Chicago World's Fair. I loved the setting and history in this story, although at times the characters drove me a little nutty. A solid B- read for me.
Next up is Always a Stranger by Amara Royce. A well-drawn Victorian London setting, a spare hero thrust into the heir role, a Japanese heroine, and a bit of suspense. I found the romance a little slow in spots, but the plot is compelling and the dialogue very solid. Another solid B-.
And finally, a round-up of unusual historicals coming out in May. Like a dolt, I forgot to include the Royce title (that's why Baby Jesus created comments though!). A potentially very good month for westerns - which as we all know, Wendy loves her some westerns.
