Title: Rumor Has It by Jill Mansell
Rumor Has It sizzles with New York Times and USA Today Bestseller Jill Mansell's signature fresh sense of humor, poignancy, and happy ending with a twist…. Newly single Tilly Cole impulsively moves to a small town, only to find she's arrived in a hotbed of gossip, intrigue, and rampant rivalry for the most desirable man—Jack Lucas, whose reputation is beyond bad. Tilly has no intention of becoming another notch on his bedpost. But she finds the thoughtful, caring guy she comes to value as a friend doesn't seem to fit the town's playboy image. Should she listen to her friends or her heart? Is Tilly being mature and sensible—or running away from the love of her life?
Title: The Greatest Knight by Elisabeth Chadwick
Royal Protector. Loyal Servant. Forgotten Hero… A penniless young knight with few prospects, William Marshal is plucked from obscurity when he saves the life of Henry II’s formidable queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine. In gratitude, she appoints him tutor to the heir to the throne. However, being a royal favorite brings its share of danger and jealousy as well as fame and reward. William’s influence over the volatile, fickle Prince Henry and his young wife is resented by less favored courtiers who set about engineering his downfall.
A writer of uncommon historical integrity and accuracy, Elizabeth Chadwick resurrects the true story of one of England’s greatest forgotten heroes in a captivating blend of fact and fiction. The Greatest Knight restores William Marshal to his rightful place at the pinnacle of the Middle Ages, reflecting through him the triumphs, scandals, and power struggles that haven’t changed in eight hundred years.
Title: I am the Chosen King by Helen Hollick
In this beautifully crafted tale, Harold Godwinesson, the last Saxon King of England, is a respected, quick-witted man both vulnerable and strong, honorable and loving -- and yet, in the end, only human. After the political turmoil and battles leading up to 1066, we all know William the Conqueror takes England. But USA Today Bestseller Helen Hollick will have readers at the edge of their seats, hoping that just this once, for Harold, the story will have a different ending.
Title: Dating Mr. December by Phillipa Ashley
When a nice girl asks twelve men to get naked, it’s sure to cause a scandal... Emma Tremayne leaves her high-powered PR job and moves to the Lake District looking for peace, quiet—and celibacy. So perhaps it’s not the best idea when, in the spirit of “community-mindedness,” she agrees to help the local mountain rescue team fundraise by putting together a “tasteful” nude calendar. Especially since quite a lot of the community seems to mind what she’s up to—including the tall, dark and handsome Mr. July, Will Tennant, who appears to have got completely the wrong impression about Emma’s intentions. So how does she convince him that he’s more than just the flavor of the month?
Title: Mr. Darcy’s Diary by Amanda Grange
The only place Darcy could share his innermost feelings was in the private pages of his diary... Torn between his sense of duty to his family name and his growing passion for Elizabeth Bennet, all he can do is struggle not to fall in love. Mr. Darcy's Diary presents the story of the unlikely courtship of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy from Darcy's point of view. This graceful imagining and sequel to Pride and Prejudice explains Darcy's moodiness and the difficulties of his reluctant relationship as he struggles to avoid falling in love with Miss Bennet. Though seemingly stiff and stubborn at times, Darcy's words prove him also to be quite devoted and endearing - qualities that eventually win over Miss Bennet's heart. This continuation of a classic romantic novel is charming and elegant, much like Darcy himself.
