very exotic looking! I have all but one of the set, I'd really rather have an older edition but I've been searching and wishing for it forever so I may have to fill in w/ a re-release....

I like the Roselynde ones (which I still haven't read...) but don't really care for the others (but I already have all of those).

Bond of Blood was one of my first "grown-up" historical  romance novels.  I read it in the mid 70's so it was 10 years old then. 

Daphne, that suprises me you have got to read Roselynde Series, but space them out or you can get burned out.

Good advice from Jerelyn on spacing them out. I did notice that Sourcebooks has one of her titles as well, I think it was Tapestry of Dreams.

I just heard from Roberta Gellis, she has agreed to be interviewed for the PBS blog.  I am danicing on the ceiling!smiley

Beautiful covers!!

This reminds me, someone wanted my pb copy of Alinor, but I can't remember who, or why we were waiting.   Anyone?  Anyone?  (Remember that boring teacher in Ferris Buehler's Day Off? LOL)

ELLORA'S CAVE???  Must be the "Blush" line is for mildly/not at all raunchy. It sort of boggles the mind to think that the same small pub publishes both Gellis AND Lora Leigh.

The Baen covers are blech. How long did it take them to create those? 5 minutes tops?

ITA Karla.  My first thought when I saw 'Eldora's Cave" was "really?"  "why?"  

Fortunate enough to have read all of Roberta in my teen, early college years.  Still think fondly of them.  In the last year, all have gone on to new homes, except for Bond of Blood-it's a favorite.

Jan, when I contacted Ms. Gellis about the interview, she said that she was in the middle of editing Rhiannon, that got me curious enough to know what editing had been done in the other books.  I had planned to get these books for my Nook as soon as they became available, I think the reason why she signed the deal with Ellenora's Cave was to get these book into e-reader format.  I am hoping too that the unpublished books in the Mystery series that she has written will now be published.  It is one of the questions I will be asking her.

I"m not sure why I haven't gotten around to any of the Roselynde books - maybe someday...

I haven't gotten around to them either, though I've got all of them. I've love to read every book I have at once, but.....
