On My Wishlist (8)


The wonderful Book Chick City hosts this Saturday meme where participants get to list books they want to add to their collection.  New, old, unreleased, whatever our hearts desire.  If you’d like to join the train, Mr. Linky is always open at my hostesses’ site on their Saturday post and there are always all sorts of fun blogs to go visit.  I’ve found way, way too many good books by checking out everyone else’s lists.

I skipped the Wishlist last Saturday, so I’m doubling my list this week just because I want more.  Ha, I’m five again.  I’ve been reading a lot of YA and smutty contemp stuff these past two weeks, so I’m in a historical mood.  One of my picks is a pre-order that Jane at Dear Author was glued to and said is terrific, one is an earlier book in the Pennyroyal Green series.  I read What I Did for a Duke a little bit ago and it was so good, I bought the Kindle and paperback versions and have read it twice already.

Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart (Love by Numbers #3)

By Sarah MacLean
Publisher: HarperCollins Canada
Publication Date: April 26, 2011

She lives for passion.

Bold, impulsive, and a magnet for trouble, Juliana Fiori is no simpering English miss. She refuses to play by society’s rules: she speaks her mind, cares nothing for the approval of the ton, and can throw a punch with remarkable accuracy. Her scandalous nature makes her a favorite subject of London’s most practiced gossips…and precisely the kind of woman the Duke of Leighton wants far far away from him.

He swears by reputation.

Scandal is the last thing Simon Pearson has room for in his well-ordered world. The Duke of Disdain is too focused on keeping his title untainted and his secrets unknown. But when he discovers Juliana hiding in his carriage late one evening–risking everything he holds dear–he swears to teach the reckless beauty a lesson in propriety.

She has other plans, however; she wants two weeks to prove that even an unflappable duke is not above passion.

Like No Other Lover (Pennyroyal Green #2)

By Julie Anne Long
Publisher: Avon
Publication Date: October 28, 2008

Now or Never. . .

It’s the last chance for Cynthia Brightly, the ton’s most bewitching belle. Driven out of London by a secret scandal, she must find a grand husband at the Redmonds’ house party before word of her downfall spreads all over England. Unfortunately, someone at Pennyroyal Green is already privy to the whispers of broken engagements and dueling lovers: Miles Redmond, renowned explorer and—thanks to his brother’s disappearance—heir to the family’s enormous fortune.

Miles set his sights on Cynthia once, at a time when the ambitious beauty thought herself too good for a second son. But now he’s heir apparent, relishing his control. He strikes a bargain with her: he’ll keep Cynthia’s steamy secrets and help her find a husband among the guests—in exchange for a single kiss.

What could be the harm in a simple kiss? Cynthia is about to discover that it’s enough to unleash fierce passion—and that Miles Redmond is most certainly like no other lover in the world.
