Your three books are all loosely connected, about men who concern themselves with agriculture. Are there more princes waiting in the wings? What’s next for you?
The Serpent Prince ends my trilogy; I’m moving on to Hearts instead. I just finished Iron Heart, which I hope will be the first of a four-book series. It’s about four veterans of the French and Indian War, the women who are helping them deal with the aftermath of war, and a mystery surrounding the massacre of their regiment. And there will be a new fairytale in each story.
Now she doesn't say it, so I can only hope, but could these books perchance be set in Colonial America? Because for me, lord knows, there aren't nearly enough books with this setting. In bygone years there used to be quite a few but now they are very far and few between. Just to be clear, I'm not talking Westerns. I love and adore them too, but I'm talking stories that take place east of the Mississippi, when America was still a very new nation - or Canada for that matter - I love Kate Bridges books for example.
There have been some wonderful books I can name; the two books by Kate Rothwell, Something Wonderful and Somebody to Love. Wendy Lindstrom wrote four most excellent books. And a discussion of these kinds of books simply must include Pamela Clare's wonderful stories. Ride the Fire is firmly planted in my top five of all books.
Some other very honourable mention authors who tackled this setting
Laura Lee Gurhke
Linda Francis Lee
And probably many more whose names escape me at the moment but I'll remember as soon as I hit draft.
But - I've complained/mourned/wrote about this before. *sigh*
And speaking of Elizabeth Hoyt's newest, The Leopard Prince, it's finally shown up in the city (I've been checking daily) but in the Chapters on the other side of the city, a half hour's drive away. Arrrggghhhh.
This happens all the time with the stupid Chapters near me. They just don't get the same books as the other one! I think I'll have to write them a letter of complaint. It's so frustrating trying to make that decision. Do I have a bit more patience or do I start that long expensive treck across the city to get a book when the ones I already have overwhelm me with their vast numbers? What I should do is just settle back with what I do have and be a patient little romance reader.
