Coming in October

Wow, it’s hard to believe it’s October already and the year is almost over!  It seems like the summer just started, but we’re rolling up on Jeanne’s favorite holiday, Halloween.

We have a great month lined up in the Lair.  Here’s what’s coming!

Bandita Jeanne will do her usual post on October 8 and will be hosting the annual Halloween Party in the Lair on the 31st.

9780765335128On October 13, USA Today bestselling author Jon Land returns with Strong Light of Day, the seventh and latest Caitlin Strong/Cort Wesley Masters thriller!  In this RT Top Pick, Caitlin faces down a man whose engineered pesticide may have poisoned a huge tract of land and hunts for Cort Wesley’s son and other students from his school who’ve disappeared.

On top of that, there’s a crazed rancher whose entire herd has been killed and picked clean by something inexplicable. Add Russian extremists into the mix, and this is sure to be another dynamic page-turner. Join us and see what Jon has to say about it. He’ll be giving away a signed hardcover of Strong Light of Day.

DEADLY CURIOSITIES-VENDETTAOctober 26 marks the return of bestselling fantasy author Gail Z. Martin to the Lair.  Gail with chat with Jeanne and Nancy about alternate history.  The cover at right is for Vendetta, the forthcoming book in her Deadly Curiosities urban fantasy series, and we hope to get her to dish a little about that while she’s here. Gail will give away a copy of the first book in the series, Deadly Curiosities.

BrethrenBoxsetVolumeonefinalOn October 29, Jeanne welcomes frequent guest Barbara Devlin and her hot, sexy, historical Nautonnier Knights.  Barb not only has a new boxed set of the first three Brethren books coming out, but if you tune in on October 29, she’s got a HUGE announcement to make!  Here’s a little taste of The Brethren of the Coast Boxed Set…

Let the Brethren rock your boat in a Limited Time–Limited Edition .99-cent Boxed Set of the first three Brethren of the Coast long novels.

Enter the Brethren

Fate brings them together in a dimly lit cabin, where Trevor is looking for revenge, and Caroline is taking a bath.

My Lady, the Spy

Can Nautionnier Knight Dirk Randolph accept that his ladylove, Rebecca Wentworth, and the spy, L’araignee, exist as two sides of the same coin?

The Most Unlikely Lady

Oh-so dashing–but untitled–Everett Markham seeks a bride, and he has charged the field of Miss Sabrina Douglas, a woman who prefers trout to truffles.

***Bonus Extra***

Loving Lieutenant Douglas – Prequel to the Brethren of the Coast series

It is the Age of Sail, England is on the brink of war with France, and Royal Navy First Lieutenant Mark Douglas is not looking for a wife, but fate has other plans…

Join us on October 29 for the big announcement!
Jeanne is bookending this month, starting it on her regular day and closing it on October 31 with her annual Halloween bash blog. Stop by and join the party!
