    Murder at the Vicarage isn’t free for Nook nor are the Georgette Heyer books discounted.I’ll keep checking in case it changes but I thought I’d mention it so people LOOK before they buy. :-)

    I added one to the old post yesterday so I’ll copy it over here:

    Take a look at Isabella by Loretta Chase – the cover! Is NYLA a big publisher? Because that cover is bad.

    (And thanks again for this list!)

    @Carin That is Nancy Yost, her agent and I guess it, like the previous book (the title of which escapes me) is “self published” with the aid of the agent. Loretta Chase has said on the Smart Bitches blog that she was told that she could only use public domain art. Many people have pointed out that this is not accurate, but…clearly that point is either being ignored or these covers appeal to whomever is responsible for the packaging of this product.

    @Ned: That’s odd. Ilona Andrews blogged just this past week about how Nancy Yost asked for changes to the cover of the self-pubbed title they’re working on. The first cover wasn’t bad but the finished cover is very good and represents the story better.

    Maybe since Isabella is a backlist title, they aren’t as concerned about it. Isabella was originally a Traditional Regency so in that sense the cover seems representative.

    @MaryK oops, that comment was from me not Ned. I was logged into his account.

    @Denise: Everyone should buy Cassie Palmer’s series. Especially at that price. That series is up there with Brigg’s Mercy and Women of the Otherworld. Love, love, love it.

    @ Christine M–I bought the bundled Cassie Palmer books quite a while ago, and I’m looking forward to reading them.

    @Ann G: They’re wonderful. Such a rich, complex world building, IMO. And Pritkin is…. WHOA. So, so hot.
