Waiting on Wednesday

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.

This week my pick is How to Ravish a Rake by Vicky Dreiling (out April 1st).  I really enjoyed the previous two books as they were fun and a delight to read.  Here is the summary:


Amy Hardwick has one last Season to shake off her wallflower image and make a love match. If she can't, she'll set aside her dreams of romance and return home to a suitor who can provide security-if little else. What she doesn't count on is the inappropriate-and irresistible-attention lavished on her in a darkened library by rake extraordinaire Will "The Devil" Darcett . . .


When Will is caught in a tryst with the ton's shyest miss, he knows he must offer for her hand. Yet Amy is not the shrinking violet she seems to be. Passion lies beneath her prim exterior and Will is eager to release it. But winning Amy isn't simply a matter of seduction; first, Will must convince her that he's mended his wicked ways . . .

I enjoy a good forced engagement/marriage storyline and there has been a bit of a build up for Will and Amy's story in the previous books so that makes me a bit more anxious for it.  (But I'm sure you could read it as a standalone).  I also love the cover...the yellow background is very eye catching and the pretty blue of her dress....and oh yes, the abs of steel :)

What about you?  Have you read Vicky Dreiling before?  Or do you enjoy the forced engagement/marriage storyline?
