Submitted a historical several years ago and the rejection said that it was not the sort of thing they were looking for.

From their website it seems that they only represent UK authors

Was sent a personal rejection letter eight hours after I e-mailed my query letter.

I queried to Kate a little while ago, and she was very prompt in requesting sample chapters, and also very prompt in replying. While the story wasn't for her, she did recommend some changes I should think about, and once those changes were made, I resent and was contacted by her reader, Catherine, for the full. I'd definitely recommend this agency.
