Another Mailbox Monday!!! Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page. This is a feature where we all share with each other the exciting books that showed up at our doors this week. WARNING: Mailbox Mondays can lead to extreme envy and ever-growing wishlists!!
This week my mailbox was bombarded with great books.
Three books from the Rebecca Ann Collins' Pride & Prejudice sequels - Netherfield Park Revisited, Ladies of Longbourn, and Mr. Darcy's Daughter. Rebecca Ann Collins is the pen name of a lady in Australia who loves Jane Austen's work so much that she has written a series of 10 sequels to Pride and Prejudice, following Austen's beloved characters, introducing new ones and bringing the characters into a new historical era.

Valcourt Heiress
by Catherine Coulter
This was a LibraryThing ER book and will be part of my October reading very soon.
Set in medieval England, this lively historical romance delivers the trademark wit that fans have come to know and love from the #1 New York Times-bestselling author.
Garron of Kersey returned home triumphant, expecting to receive a barony for his royal service. Instead, he stands stricken at the sight of his castle in ruins. His few remaining servants tell him that a ruthless man dubbed the Black Demon ravaged the grounds in search of gold supposedly hidden by the returning warrior's brother. Brave Garron discovers, however, that he has one new, mysterious ally: A beautiful, enigmatic woman who calls herself Merry. Together, they will restore the estate and solve more than one looming mystery. A new romance by a regular on Barnes & Noble bestseller lists.
The Border Vixen
by Bertrice Small
The fifth installment of Small's popular Border Chronicles (The Border Lord and Lady) offers a rollicking portrait of Scottish lass Margaret "Mad Maggie" Kerr, who in 1532, at 17, is looking for a husband who "will be content to let me do what needs doing." Her grandfather Dugald Kerr puts out a challenge for a man who can "outride, outrun and outfight" Maggie, his only heir to the family fortune, which includes control of a vital passage between Scotland and England that the Kerrs have protected (and collected tolls on) for more than 500 years. Winning Maggie's hand intrigues many men, especially Ewan Hay, who's furious when he fails the test. Enter Edinburgh's handsome Fingal Stewart, dispatched by his cousin, King James V, to claim Maggie and get control of the passage. Not too surprisingly, Fingal not only succeeds with the test but also wins Maggie's heart. Ewan, however, is not ready to relinquish his desires and will stop at nothing to claim the passage and conceive an heir with Maggie. Small's satisfying, heavy-breathing romp reaffirms her standing as a historical romance stalwart.
My Mailbox was definitely hot this week!
