Wishlist Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Pen to Paper where we post about one book that has been hanging out on our wish list (either for a long time, or not so long)
Ok, I’ll admit that I did a happy dance when I saw this week’s Wishlist Wednesday book pop up in my coming soon recommendations from Amazon…Lisa Kleypas has been a historical romance favorite of mine for years (I think I’ve read every single one of her historicals, multiple times over the years), however, over the last few years, she has gone the contemporary romance/magical realism/paranormal-ish romance route and personally, I haven’t been a fan of those. So the fact that she has a new historical coming out in October is enough to make me jump with joy.
A twist of fate…
Devon Ravenel, London’s most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities . . . and more than a few surprises. His estate is saddled with debt, and the late earl’s three innocent sisters are still occupying the house . . . along with Kathleen, Lady Trenear, a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon’s own.
A clash of wills…
Kathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon. But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny—and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her. As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction, only one question remains:
Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she’s ever known?
Cold-Hearted Rake will be released by Avon Romance in October 2015
