Mailbox Monday #82

I received two books in my mailbox this week and one of them was completely unexpected.

I was very excited to receive Incognito by Gregory Maguire!  I absolutely love the cover and had been unable to accept it for review due to time constraints but I was thrilled to win it from a giveaway at Burton Book Review - thanks Marie!

I unexpectedly received a bound galley of The September Queen by Gillian Bagwell.  The cover is gorgeous and sounds interesting - I had not really herd of Jane Lane before.  Here is the blurb:
Charles II is running for his life-and into the arms of a woman who will risk all for king and country. 
Jane Lane is of marrying age, but she longs for adventure. She has pushed every potential suitor away-even those who could provide everything for her. Then one day, adventure makes its way to her doorstep, and with it comes mortal danger... 
Royalists fighting to restore the crown to King Charles II implore Jane to help. Jane must transport him to safety, disguised as a manservant. As she places herself in harm's way, she finds herself falling in love with the gallant young Charles. And despite his reputation as a breaker of hearts, Jane finds herself surrendering to a passion that will change her life forever.
