  1. Thanks for the post Amy - saw the heads up on Twitter. Heh, I don't get headless, I get two heads this time! :-) I know you're not as sold on this cover as the others, but I really do love it myself!
    All best

  2. I'm excited to be reading my first EC very soon. I bought The Greatest Knight and I received The Scarlet Lion to review. I'm a little late on this train but I will catch up, haha.

  3. Sigh, another to add to my must have list.

  4. Sounds like my kind of heroine..would love to read this!

  5. Ooooh, *sigh*
    I'm gonna have to live to be a hundred and twelve to read all these great books.

  6. Is this not a series? I am confused. Sounds really good though.
