I did mention this, Misfit, but have just made it a bit clearer :)


You'd be surprised how much my feeble brain misses, especially at 5 AM ;) :o

I did find a HB copy of the trilogy in one volume pretty cheap so I've ordered it.

Hey, I didn't realise that it ever came out in HB, I've only ever seen PB editions.

Hope you enjoy it, or I'll be in trouble-- :)

I know that feeling. I think I've convinced a few to try the Marianne series. The pressure.... :confused: :p ;)

Vanessa, I'm a bit puzzled by the synopsis of Rose, Rose Where Are You? (as Rosemary Ellerbeck) 1977

"The awesome Burgundian curse uttered by Joan of Arc echoes down the ages to strike a French noble family and a beautiful British historian in thrall to the Saint's legend.

'A captivating French Gothic romance with supernatural overtones . . .' (Publishers Weekly)'

I've never come across mention of a curse uttered by Joan of Arc- anyone know about this? Mind you, we are talking fiction here, right?

A saucy cover always entertains me, half the time I can't believe publishers dare (or dared!) to publish some of the covers they have :D I've tried Goodreads but can't seem to get into it, maybe I should take another look. Do let us know your verdict on the Enchantress saga when you get chance Misfit! :)

No, I don't know about it. I guess I will have to read the book to find out what the curse is. I've had a quick search but can't find anything. I would imagine the book is totally fictional!

Just finished book #1. A few flaws, and the gypsy camp stuff wore thin but she rallied it in the end and book #2 is starting off much quite well. I found a cover for Lady of the Lakes, AKA Falcon Fury.

I never read the original three books written under the Katherine Yorke pseudonym, and it would be interesting to know just how things were tidied up for the 3-in-1 Enchantress Saga written published under the Nicola Thorne name.
