Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine. This gives us the opportunity to share what books we are waiting for.
I’m desperately waiting for Book # 3 – How to Woo a Reluctant Lady – Sabrina Jeffries’ latest in her Hellions of Halstead Hall series. I’ve been told I’m getting a copy from the publisher but it hasn’t arrived…..maybe it’s time to take cookies down to the post office……
Lady Minerva Sharpe has the perfect plan to thwart her grandmother’s demand that she marry by year’s end: become engaged to a rogue! Surely Gran would rather release her inheritance than see her wed a scoundrel.
And who better to play the part of Minerva’s would-be husband than wild barrister Giles Masters, the very inspiration for the handsome spy in the popular gothic novels she writes? The memory of his passionate kiss on her nineteenth birthday has lingered with Minerva, though she has no intention of falling for such a rakehell, much less marrying him! Little does she know, Giles really is a covert government operative. When the two team up to investigate the mystery behind her parents’ deaths, their fake betrothal leads to red-hot desire. Then Minerva discovers Giles’s secret double life, and he must use all the cunning tricks of his trade to find his way back to her heart.
