New Susan Holloway Scott in 2010!!!!

I am so excited for this one!!! I love Susan and all of her books!

Stay tuned in September for a HF Bloggers Round Table event for The Countess and the King!!!!

Release Date: September 7, 2010

SYNOPSIS: London, 1675: Born to wealth and privilege, Katherine is introduced to the decadent court of King Charles II, and quickly becomes a favorite from the palace to the bawdy playhouses. She gleefully snubs respectable marriage to become the Duke of York’s mistress.

But Katherine’s life of carefree pleasure ends when Charles II dies, and her lover becomes King James II. Suddenly she is cast into a tangle of political intrigue, religious dissent, and ever-shifting alliances, where a wrong step can mean treason, exile, or death at the executioner’s block. As the risks rise, Katherine is forced to make the most perilous of choices: to remain loyal to the king, or to England.




  1. I am really looking forward to this sounds GREAT!!!

  2. I am looking forward to this one too, although I would have liked another book about Charles II.

  3. Thank you for the fanfare, Amy!
    I'm amazed you have the cover already, too. I didn't realize it had been finalized yet by my publisher. Oh, well, the author's always the last to know...but it does look mighty fine here.

    And Marg -- don't worry, Charles II is in this book quite a bit, too. I couldn't abandon him entirely....:)

  4. Phew! That's good to know! I would have been reading it anyway, but still.

  5. Yay! I can't wait! I love Susan!

  6. Oh I love the cover - I actually like all of her covers. Can't wait to read this one.

  7. Looks and sounds like a good book. Will be looking forward to it.

  8. This looks great! I have not read a book about James II.

  9. This one looks great...and what a beautiful cover. I am glad to hear that Charles II will be in it as well...
