Hello dear readers!  Welcome to another Mailbox Monday, my favorite meme of the week - I just love seeing what everyone gets in their mailbox!

This past week quality trumped quantity and I was tickled pink when this gorgeous baby showed up at my door!  Queen Hereafter by Susan Fraser King has been on my wishlist forever and I am so excited to tell you that Ms. King will be stopping by PTTP in December for an interview!

Release Date:  December 7, 2010

SYNOPSIS:  Margaret, a young Saxon princess shipwrecked with her family on a Scottish shore, must accept sanctuary from the warrior-king, Malcolm Canmore, who sees a political prize in his grasp.  Bargaining his support for her brother, the rebel Edgar of England, Malcolm claims Margaret for his bride.  Now, a foreign queen in a strange land, Margaret must learn who is friend and who is foe.

When Malcolm brings a female bard, Eva, to court as a hostage to ensure the good behavior of her kinswoman and former queen, his enemy Lady Macbeth, Margaret and Eva expect to resent each other.  Instead, they discover an unlikely bond as opposites-Eva a wild Celtic spirit among enemies, Margaret suppressing her passions in her need to the perfect queen and mother of princes.

Torn between loyalties, Eva must betray the king and queen in order to honor a secret promise to Lady Macbeth.  Tossed into a dungeon, charged with witchcraft and treason, Eva soon learns that Queen Margaret-counseled by the king and his stern priests-will decide her fate.
