This weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, gives us a chance to highlight some upcoming releases we are interested in reading.  It also gives us a chance to check out some other upcoming books we may not have known about. 

The Sixth Surrender
by Hana Samek Norton
Release Date: July 27, 2010

In the last years of her eventful life, queen-duchess Alienor of Aquitaine launches a deadly dynastic chess game to safeguard the crowns of Normandy and Enland for John Plantagenet, her last surviving son.

To that end, Alienor coerces into matrimony two pawns - Juliana de Charnais, a plain and pious novice determined to regain her inheritance, and Guerin de Lasalle, a cynical, warworn mercenary equally resolved to renounce his.

The womanizing Lasalle and the proud Juliana are perfectly matched for battle not love - until spies and assassins conspire  to reverse their romantic features.


  1. A lot of skulduggery was going on in those days - makes for some riveting reading. Good pick!

  2. Oooh - another one for the wishlist!
