His Immortal Embrace

The Yearning, by Hannah Howell

Tormented by an ancient curse, the young men of Clan MacCordy reach manhood only to walk forever in darkness, thirsting for blood--and Alpin MacCordy is no different. He must wed for coin and land, despite his betrothed's terror--and his own fascination for another woman, Lady Sophie Hay. . .

Bitten, by Lynsay Sands

After brooding Keeran MacKay saves Emily Wentworth Collins from a storm-tossed ship: he offers her shelter in his secluded castle. But when a savage kiss reveals Keeran's true nature, Emily realizes that yielding to Keeran's untamed desire may change her own life. . .forever.

Stranger in the Night, by Sara Blayne

Georgiana Thornberry hopes to unearth ancient treasure while exploring the moldering ruins of her ancestral home. Instead she encounters Julius Lathrop. Does the enigmatic--and disturbingly attractive--stranger hold the key to a family legend? Or something far more sinister?

The Awakening, by Kate Huntington

Orphaned Thalia Layton is stricken to hear that her beloved, eccentric Aunt Cordelia has taken ill. But upon her arrival at Cordelia's remote estate, Thalia discovers that her aunt has harbored dangerous secrets--and that Thalia's own attraction to Adrian Lucerne, Cordelia's mysterious--and oddly nocturnal--companion, may prove to be a sensual temptation that will cost her life. . .

About Hannah Howell:

Hannah D. Howell is a highly regarded and prolific romance writer. Since Amber Flame, her first historical romance, was released in February 1988, she has published 25 novels and short stories, with more on the way. Her writing has been repeatedly recognized for its excellence and has "made Waldenbooks Romance Bestseller list a time or two" as well as was nominated twice by Romantic Times for Best Medieval Romance (Promised Passion and Elfking's Lady). She has also won Romantic Times' Best British Isles Historical Romance for Beauty and the Beast; and, in 1991-92 she received Romantic Times' Career Achievement Award for Historical Storyteller of the Year.

Hannah was born and raised in Massachusetts (the maternal side of her family has been there since the 1630's). She has been married to her husband Stephen for 28 years, who she met in England while visiting relatives, and decided to import him. They have two sons Samuel, 27, and Keir, 24. She is addicted to crocheting, reads and plays piano, attempts to garden, and collects things like dolls, faerie and cat figurines, and music boxes. She also seems to collect cats, as she now has four of them, Clousseau, Banshee, Spooky, and Oliver Cromwell.


About Kate Huntington:

Kate Huntington became an Anglophile at the tender age of sixteen when her English teacher forced her to read Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. The experience changed Kate's life by teaching her the joy of truly excellent literature.

After high school, she attended St. Francis College in Fort Wayne, Indiana. There she received a bachelor of the arts degree in English. When she graduated, she made a living as a reporter and editor at a succession of community newspapers. Her love for Regency romances grew and she eagerly devoured every title she could get her hands on. When she was perilously close to turning forty, Kate resigned from her position as managing editor in order to pursue her lifelong dream of writing novels.

Kate fulfilled her dream with the publication of The Captain's Courtship in March of 1999. Although it was her debut novel, Romantic Times Magazine labeled it a top pick for March. Her sophomore effort, The Lieutenant's Lady, will be available in December of 1999 and her first novella will be included in the anthology Spring Kittens (due in Spring, 2000). In between author appearances and her busy writing schedule, Kate relaxes with her husband of thirteen years in a small town in Illinois.


About Lynsay Sands:

Lynsay Sands is the New York Times bestselling author of the Argeneau vampire series as well as more than fifteen historical novels and anthologies. She lives in Canada.

About Sara Blayne:

Since Zebra published my first novel, "Passion's Lady," in 1985, I have published twelve novels, six short stories, and a novella as Sara Blayne, and four other novels as Johanna Hailey. I have received the Romantic Times certificate of excellence for four of my Zebra Regencies, and "An Elusive Guardian" was A Little Romance's finalist for Best Regency of the Year. I was honored with the Romantic Times Career Achievement Award for 1998-1999.

I was born in historic Las Vegas, New Mexico, nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristos and overlooking a landscape of sweeping mesas. I grew up steeped in the mystique of the Old West with Zane Grey romances among my favorite books. Some of my fondest memories of my childhood are picnicking and fishing along the Gallinas River with my family, which is undoubtedly why fishing figures in so many of my stories. I met my husband Steve when I was working to complete my master's degree in English at Eastern New Mexico University, and a year later we were married. I taught English at Eastern New Mexico University for five years, but resigned to rear our son Caleb. A little over two years later, we were blessed with our daughter Kathryn. It was, for me, a dream come true.

In between rearing a family and helping out on the farm, I continued my life-long pursuit of writing. It was not until I stumbled on to a Georgette Heyer Regency that I felt as if I had finally come home. I sat down and began what was to become my very first published Regency Romance, "Passion's Lady." It took me two years of writing during the babies' naps, but I finally finished it.

Today, along with babysitting for my new grandson Morgan William, I am working on my seventeenth novel, a traditional Regency entitled "A Noble Heart," which is the fourth in the series about the Powell family of seven children.

I love to hear from my fans. My mailing address is 1394 South Roosevelt Rd. 15, Portales, NM 88130.
