[quote=""EC2""]Oh that's a horrid man in modern opaque panty hose cover that's out of the ark and you are so right about the choice. Then again, the Roselynde stuff might be tied up in other contracts still as regards rights - didn't Harlequin publish the Roselynde material a couple of years ago? I am very surprised too it has to be said.[/quote]

I know Harlequin published the first two, so you may be right. We were chatting about this over at Goodreads and I think the hair color is wrong as well. I think she was white blonde, but it's been a while.

Aha, just read back upthread and Ceridwen Press have the Roselynde Chronicles, so Sourcebooks won't be able to have them.

OK, that explains that. Still Tapestry of Dreams is such an odd choice. I wonder how our *modern* romance readers will react to it? IIRC the purple prose is plentiful, and especially so in the sequel Fires of Winter. Oh, those Sir Jehad references :o :) :p :rolleyes: :eek:

I'm interested in Gellis's Greek Myths series. Has anyone read them? Are they worth tracking down? I'd also be interested in whether there are plans to reissue or Kindlize them.

In a post where Roberta Gellis talks about the reissue of some of her books, she doesn't mention the Greek Myths series, though she has a contact option so you could ask her :)

I haven't read any of these (though they sound interesting, if perhaps rather romanticised). I have been very much enjoying the Canongate Myths series, though, and have the latest, A. S. Byatt's Ragnarok, on order.

The entire Roselynde Chronicles is now out on ebook, you can see all but one of them on this amazon link. The search doesn't pull up book six, but it is available.
