Breakout bestseller Chelsea Cain (Heartsick and Sweetheart) has signed with St. Martin’s Minotaur for three more books. Executive editor Kelley Raglang struck the deal, which is a copublishing agreement with Macmillan in the U.K., with agentĀ  Joy Harris. (A Minotaur rep would not confirm how much the deal was for, though it’s at least high six figures.) Two of the books will be additions to Cain’s thriller series featuring Portland PI Archie Sheridan, with the third title a stand-alone. The first title is slated for 2010; Cain’s third thriller from Minotaur, Evil at Heart, is publishing in September.
