The Kydd Inheritance - first sighting

.
Eeek! Haven't blogged for ages. I'll get some retrospective posts up in the next few days, but just now I'm overjoyed at the first sighting of my next Regency The Kydd Inheritance.

It is available for pre-order at the Hale book site at a whacking 30% discount!

The Kydd Inheritance is the prequel to Fair Deception and Fortunate Wager, my Newmarket Regencies.

Here is a tiny snippet of the scene that goes with the cover...

As they penetrated further across the heath, the gloom deepened and the rain increased. All the lurid romances Nell had ever read unfurled their pages in her head. She was not laughing at the idea of highwaymen now - there were no other travellers on this stretch but themselves and every bush seemed to hold twice its complement of shadows.
    “Nell,” said Hugo’s low voice after perhaps ten minutes of her seeing ghosts behind every tree. “I do not wish to alarm you, but I believe there to be a horseman in that copse ahead of us to our right.”

Very exciting! Love the cover, very atmospheric. When's it due for release?

Jan Jones said...

Thanks, all! I think David Young has come up with a lovely atmospheric cover too.

The Kydd Inheritance isn't due out until January, unfortunately. Hope everyone hasn't spent all their Christmas money by then!
