I love summers! I love the extra free time. I love the sunny weather. I love that I have more time to just sit and read. I cannot wait for it to be officially summer!
I do not want my first blog post in a while to be too content-heavy, so instead of a review post like I initially planned to do when I sat down to do this blog post, I am instead going to debut a new blog feature called "3 Pretty Covers and a Synopsis" that I am planning to do here once in a while.
We will be highlighting four upcoming books: three chosen for their pretty covers (we are cover whores here!) and one chosen for its fantastic, I-want-to-read-it-NOW synopsis.
This week, my picks are romance novels.
Ravishing the Heiress by Sherry Thomas
Millicent understands the terms of her arranged marriage all too well. She gets to be a Countess by marrying an impoverished Earl. And in return, the Earl Fitzhugh receives the benefit of her vast wealth, saving his family from bankruptcy. Because of her youth, they have agreed to wait eight years before consummating the marriage—and then, only to beget an heir. After which, they will lead separate lives.
It is a most sensible arrangement. Except for one little thing. Somehow Millie has fallen head over heels in love with her husband. Her husband, who has become her very best friend, but nothing more… Her husband, who plans to reunite with his childhood sweetheart, the beautiful and newly widowed Isabelle, as soon as he has honored the pact with his wife…
As the hour they truly become husband-and-wife draws near, both Millie and Fitzhugh must face the truth in their hearts. Has their pact bred only a great friendship—or has it, without either of them quite noticing, given rise to a great love?
I will be posting my review of The Midwife of Venice by Roberta Rich. Hope you stop by then!
