Now here, of course, is this week's In My P.O. Box, a feature inspired by The Story Siren's In My Mailbox (www.thestorysiren.com):
Cupid is hot to trot!
One fateful weekend at a country estate, a beautiful, well-bred widow is caught between a rock and a very hard place when she must choose between two deliciously irresistible lovers...in Lacy Danes's seductive tale of courtship à la mode, Torn Desires.
Long-distance lovers Edie and Ty are counting the hours until their scorching Valentine's Day reunion, each titillating the other with steamy letters describing their erotic journeys. And getting there is definitely half the fun in Megan Hart's wickedly wild Get There.
London's most irresistible rake has one week to prevent the woman he loves from marrying another. And he plans to do so by adeptly employing his most well-practiced arts—seduction...sensation...and erotic love—in Jess Michaels's sumptuous feast of juicy Regency romance, By Valentine's Day.
What can I say? Valentine's Day is coming up, and look at that cover! The first page has this little TO/FROM section so the book is a bit like a valentine, which is very adorable.
Her Notorious Viscount by Jenna Petersen (To Be Released March 31, 2009)
Beauty and her beast . . .
Viscount Nicholas Stoneworth is infamous—even being mentioned in the same breath with him is enough to ruin a lady's reputation. Why, the man's spent years in London's underworld pursuing every sort of vice while parlaying his hard muscled body into fame and fortune as a fighter! With his brother's untimely death, Nicholas must assume the title and relearn the civilized ways of the ton . . . and proper Jane Fenton is more than willing to teach him everything she knows.
Circumstances may have forced Jane into the role of ladies' companion, but she knows the danger of associating with a notorious man like Nicholas, a man who could tempt any woman into certain scandal. But her brother disappeared into the same underworld four long years ago, and if she transforms the libertine into a gentleman, he will use his connections to find him. Still, Jane will not—cannot—lose control. She must ignore the promise of sinful pleasure in his eyes . . . and her own wild desires desperate to break free.
I loved Jenna Petersen's Lessons From a Courtesan, so I'm really excited about getting this one. Halley is working on the Lessons review, and I'll be working on Viscount. And, to top it all off, Jenna has agreed to do an interview for the NSCGs! So keep your eyes open...
I love this cover, and the description is so interesting!
Daughter of the Flames by Zoe Marriott (To Be Released February 10, 2009)
I stumbled across this book somewhere on the web and decided to try it out. And let me tell you, I am so thankful that I did. It was fabulous.
When the Earl of Blackmoor is mysteriously killed, Alex decides to help his son, the brooding and devilishly handsome Gavin, uncover the truth. But will Alex's heart be stolen in the process? In an adventure brimming with espionage, murder, and other clandestine affairs, who could possibly have time to worry about finding a husband? Romance abounds as this year's season begins!
