This week my "Waiting on Wednesday" pick is Magnate by Joanna Shupe!
New York City’s Gilded Age shimmers with unimaginable wealth and glittering power. The men of the Knickerbocker Club know this more than anyone else. But for one millionaire, the business of love is not what he expected…
Born in the slums of Five Points, Emmett Cavanaugh climbed his way to the top of a booming steel empire and now holds court in an opulent Fifth Avenue mansion. His rise in stations, however, has done little to elevate his taste in women. He loathes the city’s “high society” types, but a rebellious and beautiful blue-blood just might change all that.
Elizabeth Sloane’s mind is filled with more than the latest parlor room gossip. Lizzie can play the Stock Exchange as deftly as New York’s most accomplished brokers–but she needs a man to put her skills to use. Emmett reluctantly agrees when the stunning socialite asks him to back her trades and split the profits. But love and business make strange bedfellows, and as their fragile partnership begins to crack, they’ll discover a passion more frenzied than the trading room floor…
Magnate releases April 26, 2015!
Why I'm waiting:
While the only book by Joanna Shupe that I have read so far is The Courtesan Duchess, I really liked the way Joanna tells a story so when I found out about this new series by her I got really excited. But what has me really excited about this new book and series by Joanna is the setting. Almost all of the historical romance books I read are set in Regency England so the fact that this book is set in New York City during the Gilded Age has really piqued my interest so I can't wait to dive into this new world and story by Joanna Shupe next year!
What are y'all waiting on this Wednesday?
