You read enough love stories, and you find out what the best ones are made of…in this case, it’s graverobbers, immortality elixirs, and of course, the elemental trump card—an overall well-written strong female lead. Hazel Sinnett, we’re looking at you.
Hazel’s ambition to become a surgeon despite living in Edinburgh in the 1800s paired with her newfound love for Jack, the Resurrection Man who teams up with her, is a winning combo. And spoiler alert: Unfortunately at the end of the book, they are separated. But you can’t keep true love apart, and that’s why there’s a sequel!
Cosmopolitan has the first official look at Immortality: A Love Story, which will be released on March 7, 2023. You can check out the cover reveal above (and yes, her dress is shaped like a brain similar to the heart in the first book cover!).
The Blurb from Wednesday Books
“Immortality: A Love Story is the eagerly-anticipated sequel to Dana Schwartz’s #1 bestselling gothic romance, Anatomy: A Love Story.
Hazel Sinnett is alone. She’s half-convinced the events of the year before―the immortality, Beecham’s vial―were a figment of her imagination. She doesn’t even know if Jack is alive or dead. All she can really do is run her free clinic, helping people and maintaining Hawthornden Castle as it starts to decay around her.
When saving a life leads to her arrest, Hazel seems doomed to rot in prison until a message intervenes: Hazel has been specifically requested to be the personal physician of Princess Charlotte, the sickly daughter of King George IV. Soon Hazel is dragged into the glamor and romance of a court where everyone has something to hide, especially the ladies of the princess’s close circle, who never seem to stay hurt for long…
Meanwhile, Jack Currer has been trying to find a way to die. He’s been traveling across the Atlantic, hoarding any information that could cure his immortality and let him spend a normal life with Hazel. When he hears that Beecham has died, he immediately goes to London to find out how he achieved it―and reunites with Hazel once again.
As their search for the immortality cure entangles them more and more with the British court, Hazel and Jack realize that a life together is not the only thing at stake. Malicious forces are at work in the monarchy, and they are very interested in living forever.”
