Armchair BEA: New Title Showcase

I'm a little late posting my first Armchair BEA post.  Had end of school parties for my boys at school today and generally have just been very busy!

So...I've been over to the New Title Showcase listings for the BEA and I found five titles that really caught my eye.  Here they are:
Charlotte Sophia: Myth, Madness and the Moor
Tina Andrews
Publication Year:  2010
Publisher:  The Malibu Press
Charlotte Sophia was queen of England, wife of "mad" King George III, Queen Victoria's grandmother, and in love with Johann Christian Bach. But neither her king, her country, nor her lover knew she was black.
Quicksilver
Joy Spraycar
Publication Year:  2010
Publisher:  AuthorHouse
A recurring nightmare holds Serry Miller in its grip and has for most of her life. In spite of her fear of the man who becomes a monster, she’s in love with him.
Sistine Heresy
Justine Saracen
Publication Year:  2009
Publisher:  Bold Strokes Books
Adrianna Borgia, survivor of the Borgia court, presents Michelangelo with the greatest temptations of his life while struggling with soul-threatening desires for the painter Raphaela.
The Afflicted Girls: A Novel of Salem
Suzy Witten
Publication Year:  2009
Publisher:  Dreamwand
Something terrible happened in Salem Village in 1692 . . . but it isn't what you think!
This debut historical novel offers a startling new theory of the Salem witch-hunt certain to put this 300-year-old unsettled mystery to rest. Centering her story on Salem Village and its inhabitants, exploring their dark household corners as if she is solving a crime, author-researcher Suzy Witten adeptly details how the disintegration occurred while spinning familiar facts in new directions, with the mysterious "afflictions" finally explained.

WINNER 2010 IPPY SILVER MEDAL for Historical/Military Fiction

A Walt Disney Studios Fellowship Finalist

A New Dawn Rising
Patricia Budd
Publication Year:  2007
Publisher: iUniverse
In the tradition of Jane Austin and the Bronte sisters, this historical romance, set in Georgia 1809, reflects one man's struggle for love and independence.

I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

This blog is Award Free. I appreciate your thinking of me for an award, but please know that your comments are my award. Thank you!

  1. I haven't heard of these titles, but a couple of them sound interesting! Especially the one about George III's wife (she had something like 15 kids, I think!)

  3. I didn't even look at the New Title showcase.

    The only one of the ones that you had featured that I had heard of before was the Suzy Witten book.
