This week my pick is a book I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of and I am just itching to read it now. An Affair with Mr. Kennedy is Jillian Stones debut release and it will be available January 31st. And hello gorgeous cover! I looove that he is looking right at you and it is just saying 'danger and passion' to me. Here is the blurb from the authors site (which is also gorgeous and you should check out!)
London, 1887. Part stoic gentleman, part fearless Yard man, Zeno “Zak” Kennedy is an enigma of the first order. For years, the memory of a deadly bombing at King’s Cross has haunted the brilliant Scotland Yard detective. His investigation has zeroed in on a ring of aristocratic rebels whose bloody campaign for Irish revolution is terrorizing the city. When he discovers one of the treacherous lords is acquainted with his free-spirited new tenant, Cassandra St. Cloud, his inquiry pulls him unexpectedly close to the heart of the conspiracy and into the arms of a most intriguing lady.
And Cassie is no Victorian prude. An Impressionist painter with very modern ideas about life and love, she is eager for a romantic escapade that is daring and discreet. She sets her sights on her dour but handsome landlord, but after she learns their meeting was not purely accidental, she hardly has a chance to forgive her lover before their passionate affair catapults them both into a perilous adventure.
Sounds pretty good right?? :)
