New Releases to Look For

A day later than normal, but look at the fantastic books that are available from our FF&P authors.

The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker
by Leanna Renee Hieber
Released 8/25/09
Dorchester Publishing

What fortune awaited sweet, timid Percy Parker at Athens Academy? Considering how few of Queen Victoria’s Londoners knew of it, the great Romanesque fortress was dreadfully imposing, and little could Percy guess what lay inside. She had never met the powerful and mysterious Professor Alexi Rychman, knew nothing of the growing shadow, the Ripper and other supernatural terrors against which his coterie stood guard. She knew simply that she was different, haunted, with her snow-white hair, pearlescent skin and uncanny gifts. But this arched stone doorway offered a portal to a new life, an education far from the convent—and an invitation to an intimate yet dangerous dance at the threshold of life and death….

"Tender. Poignant. Exquisitely written. A gem of a book." - New York Times Bestselling Author C.L. Wilson

"A strangely beautiful tale indeed! An ethereal, lyrical story that combines myth, spiritualism and the gothic in lush prose and sweeping passion. The Strangely Beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker will keep readers guessing and greedy for more as they desperately turn the pages.. This Dark vs Light battle in Victorian London will send a shiver down your spine one minute and put a smile on your face the next. I can't wait to read what Hieber has in store for future books!" - USA Today Bestselling Author Kathryn Smith

This novel begins the Strangely Beautiful series, sequel to release in March 2010
