A rising star

We are all so proud of Nicola here on the blog. Publisher's Weekly said, "Ms Cornick is a rising star of the Regency genre..." and we couldn't agree more. Not only does she write fabulous historicals but her wonderful new book, Unmasked, has been chosen to launch Harlequin's NEW, interactive Enriched Edition e-book series!

The e-book is available with pictures and buttons to click for hyperlinks to websites giving more details of the historical background. So if you want to look up obscure period details, customs, terms or references it's easy. Just press a button and hey presto! the information is at your fingertips. It looks fantastic and it's a brilliant new way for readers to enjoy their favourite historicals.

As if this wasn't exciting enough, Unmasked was up in lights in Times Square! We're all blown away by it here on the blog. What do you think, isn't this the coolest thing you've ever seen? If you need any more reasons to check out Unmasked, here they are:

"Sensual, dangerous and charming, Nicola Cornick’s Regency romances are darkly compelling." Rendezvous the romance Bookstore.

"A book… with a unique premise and whose heroine and her journey are the star of the show." Cheryl Sneed, All About Romance.

"A haunting story... The characters are well drawn and the plot is intricately detailed and surprising. Ms Cornick... improves with each new book but her writing has moved to a new depth with Unmasked." Leanne Davis, Rakehell.

"A spellbinding historical romance spiced with plenty of intrigue, adventure, chivalry and passion, Unmasked will grab your attention from the very first page and leave you breathlessly turning the pages late into the night until you reach the final satisfying denouement." Julie Bonello,

"A wickedly seductive Regency Romance!" MurderOne Bookshops.

So where can you get hold of it? You can find it on the Harlequin site, for the same price as their regular ebooks, by clicking here You will also find more details including an exerpt.

Hooray for Nicola, history writer, history maker!

And don't worry, if you're not into ebooks, Unmasked is also available as a regular paperback.
