Today my pick for "Waiting on Wednesday" is How the Duke Was Won by Lenora Bell!
The pleasure of your company is requested at Warbury Park. Four lovely ladies will arrive… but only one can become a duchess.
James, the scandalously uncivilized Duke of Harland, requires a bride with a spotless reputation for a strictly business arrangement. Lust is prohibited and love is out of the question.
Four ladies. Three days. What could go wrong?
She is not like the others…
Charlene Beckett, the unacknowledged daughter of an earl and a courtesan, has just been offered a life-altering fortune to pose as her half-sister, Lady Dorothea, and win the duke’s proposal. All she must do is:
* Be the perfect English rose [Ha!]
* Breathe, smile, and curtsy in impossibly tight gowns [blast Lady Dorothea’s sylph-like figure]
* Charm and seduce a wild duke [without appearing to try]
* Keep said duke far, far from her heart [no matter how tempting]
When secrets are revealed and passion overwhelms, James must decide if the last lady he should want is really everything he needs. And Charlene must decide if the promise of a new life is worth risking everything . . . including her heart.
How the Duke Was Won releases April 26, 2016!
Why I'm waiting:
As you can see, I'm still really craving historical romances and How the Duke Won is another book in that genre that I am particularly looking forward to. It just sounds so fun and scandalous and I'm really looking forward to seeing how the author is going to have everything play out with the heroine pretending to be her sister.
What are y'all waiting on this Wednesday?
