Waiting on Wednesday is a a weekly blog hop hosted by Breaking the Spine where we all mention one upcoming book release we are waiting for. (And yes, I know its Thursday...work has been keeping me off schedule as of late).
My pick for this week is for a book that won't be out for.ev.er but the cover was released this week and it is gorgeous!
Lovely, isn't it? Here is the summary from goodreads.com:
What a scoundrel wants, a scoundrel gets . . .
A decade ago, the Marquess of Bourne was cast from society with nothing but his title. Now a partner in London’s most exclusive gaming hell, the cold, ruthless Bourne will do whatever it takes to regain his inheritance—including marrying perfect, proper Lady Penelope Marbury.
A broken engagement and years of disappointing courtships have left Penelope with little interest in a quiet, comfortable marriage, and a longing for something more. How lucky that her new husband has access to such unexplored pleasures.
Bourne may be a prince of London’s underworld, but he vows to keep Penelope untouched by its wickedness—a challenge indeed as the lady discovers her own desires, and her willingness to wager anything to for them . . . even her heart.
This is the start of a brand new quartet from the author that got me started on historical romance with Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake. I am sooo bummed that the release has been pushed back from the end of Dec to Feb 28, 2012 but sigh...oh well. I have loved all of Sarah MacLeans books and eagerly look forward to this one in February...it will be just the thing as I'm sure there will be at least a foot of snow around...shudder. But A Rogue By Any Other Name sounds like a great, wicked start to a quartet!
