New Covers: Historical And Lovely


Lessons From A Scandalous Bride This isn’t the best copy of this cover, as I’m sure you noticed, but I couldn’t find another version. I guess I’ll take what I can get. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I didn’t find a blurb for Lessons From A Scandalous Bride but I did see on Sophie Jordan’s website that it’s Chloe’s story.


Seven Nights in a Rogue's Bed Heads up, Anna Campbell fans! It looks like she has a new series coming out called Sons of Sin. The first book, Seven Nights in a Rogue’s Bed, will be coming out in September.


More Than a Stranger I am quite intrigued (but slightly confused) by the blurb for More Than a Stranger by Erin Knightley. I am a big fan of the falls-for-sibling’s-friend trope so I like the sound of the letter interaction between the hero and his best friend’s sister. Of course, the confusion comes into play when the blurb also mentions the heroine’s brother bringing home a ‘dashing stranger’. So which is it, a falls-for-sibling’s-friend romance or a stranger romance?


The Most Improper Miss Sophie Valentine Has anyone read anything by Jayne Fresina? I haven’t heard of her before, but I just stumbled across two covers for her books. The Most Improper Miss Sophie Valentine is one of them.


The Wicked Wedding of Miss Ellie Vyne The Wicked Wedding of Miss Ellie Vyne is the second Jayne Fresina cover that I mentioned. I really can’t believe it’s out this early. It doesn’t even release until January of 2013.


Secrets of a Wedding Night Look, another HR cover. Are you noticing a theme? ๐Ÿ˜› Secrets of a Wedding Night is Valerie Bowman’s debut book and is the first book in the Secret Brides trilogy.


A Study in Seduction I didn’t search in depth, but from my brief glance around the internet it looks like A Study in Seduction is another debut book. I didn’t see any other obvious entries in Nina Rowan’s backlist. Please, feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.


Scandal Wears Satin I saved the most exciting (for me) cover for last. Scandal Wears Satin by Loretta Chase. Yay!!! I love this author’s work! The first book in the series, Silk Is For Seduction, rocked my world. Is it June yet? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Historical romance covers are sooo pretty. They make me wish I wasn’t 5’0″ and could pull off one of those dresses. Sigh, only in my dreams.

      Even though I know there’s no way in hell those things are comfortable I still want a closet full…you know to drop the kids off at school and go to the grocery store in. hee.

        Oh I would totally eat my macaroni and cheese and hot dog dinner in one of those. I don’t care how much the short people, normally sitting at my table too, would stare at me.

          I’m going to the eye doctor in a few minutes. I’m totally picturing myself breezing in plopping myself in the exam chair in one of those. Stuffing all that fabric down at my side, kicking the doctor when to treads on my hem and then slapping him when he peeks down my cleavage. LMAO.

      But Jen, women were smaller back then, and they pulled them off! I think in real life a princess dress on a giraffe model would look pretty ridiculous, to be honest!

    Personally I don’t care that much for the whole dramatic dress on cover but it is very colorful :) Anna Campbell got a new series in the works *woohoo* I’m a bit out of the loop but I really enjoy her work so this one is definetely going on the list ๐Ÿ˜€

    Normally I don’t care too much about the cover, just if I love the author. But these covers are so pretty! I am such a sucker for a pretty cover…

    Catharine, about that Erin Knightley book. I read the blurb and I think the “dashing stranger” is the brother’s best friend. I’m assuming the two secretly corresponded but Lady Evelyn doesn’t actually know it’s him she’s been writing. Thus, he’s the stranger. Anyway, it sounds intriguing! Too bad it’s not out until June.

    Very nice! I was surprised at how many of these authors were new to me. I had heard of Chase, Campbell and Jordan, but not the others.
