Historical Fiction to be published soon.....

As I was looking through the Barnes and Noble site to see what was new in historical fiction, I came across some interesting new books to be released within the next 3 months. I found them to be intriguing and I will have to see which one I want first.....Hope you find these selections as interesting as I did...

A devilsh plot to assinate the Queen, a cold war enemy hell-bent on destroying the nation, incredible gadgets, a race against time around the world to stop the ultimate doomsday device...and Elizabethan England's greatest spy!!
Synopsis from B&N

The number-one U.K. bestseller comes to America---a sweeping historical novel about love, war, betrayal, and discovery.


Synopsis from B&N
Chevalier's newest is a flat historical whose familiar themes of gender inequality, class warfare and social power often overwhelm the story. Tart-tongued spinster Elizabeth Philpot meets young Mary Anning after moving from London to the coastal town of Lyme Regis. The two quickly form an unlikely friendship based on their mutual interest in finding fossils, which provides the central narrative as working-class Mary emerges from childhood to become a famous fossil hunter, with her friend and protector Elizabeth to defend her against the men who try to take credit for Mary's finds.
Synopsis from B&N

A delicious and intriguing historical novel about the woman who was William Shakespeare's secret wife— by New York Times—bestselling author, Karen Harper.

and last but not least of books to be published soon is one of my very favorite authors Lillian Stewart Carl
book four of the Jean Fairbairn/Alasdair Cameron series.

If you have not had the chance to read any of Lillians books you really should...they are amazing.
