Nerdy History Girl Susan Holloway Scott called my attention to this piece by George Eliot.
I know that for some people, all romance novels are "silly novels by lady novelists."
But I don't care what they say because I'm on a reading list at Yale. Authors Lauren Willig and Cara Elliott are teaching a course called "Reading the Historical Romance"— and my very own Mr. Impossible is Required Reading! Which is kind of funny, considering that the hero Rupert is...erm...well, no Einstein. But there he is, in the hallowed halls of academe.
That's Lauren on the left and Cara on the right. And if various schedules can be made to mesh, I'll be meeting their students next month.

I'm happy to report that the page proof phase is now behind me, too, and the next thing I'll see, somewhere down the road, are the Advanced Reading Copies.
Then, before we know it, Last Night's Scandal will actually be on bookstore shelves—while I'm watching Deadline-for-the-next book loom ever larger upon the horizon.
But in the meantime, here for your delectation is the brand-new cover, before even Amazon has it.
