Meg Cabot redeems herself.

I know I've complained in the past about Meg Cabot milking her series for all they're worth, but this idea is straight-up awesome:

Ransom My Heart is a historical romance "written" by Princess Mia Thermopolis, the heroine of Cabot's immensely popular Princess Diaries books. (Cabot gets a "with help from" credit.) Amazon has already posted the summary:

He's a tall, handsome knight with a secret. She's an adventurous beauty with more than a few secrets of her own. Finnula needs money for her sister's dowry, and fast. Hugo Fitzstephen, returning home to England from the Crusades with saddlebags of jewels, has money, and lots of it. What could be simpler than to kidnap him and hold him for ransom?

Well, for starters, Finnula could make the terrible mistake of falling in love with her hostage.
And in keeping with Princess Mia Thermopolis's longstanding interest in environmental issues, Cabot will be donating her advance to Greenpeace. The book is due out in early January.

Finnula? Hugo Fitzstephen? I take back at least 25% of those complaints, Ms. Cabot. My hat is off to you.
