Neuzugänge der Woche



Romance Nachschub (nochmal xD)! Aber jetzt bin ich dann erst mal für den Sommer versorgt, denke ich. Was kann ich dafür, wenn Historical Romance in englisch so günstig ist?
Immerhin ein Nicht-Historical-Romance-Buch ist die Woche auch eingezogen.

Lisa Kleypas - Then Came You
[U4-Text] She thought her heart was safe, but... Then Came You
Reckless, wild, and beautiful, Lily Lawson delights in shocking proper London society - and now she is determined to rescue her sister from an unwanted impending marriage to the notorious Alex, Lord Raiford, by fair means or foul. But while she succeeds outrageously, Alex is a master gamesman who is not to be undone.
Alex has lost one bride, yet he is enchanted by this remarkable lady who is willing to break any rule to flaunt her independence. When Lily offers him only scorn, he counters with kindness, and he parries her blistering barbs with gentle words and a soft, tender touch. The spirited miss will pay dearly for her interference - with her body, her soul, and her stubborn, unyielding heart. But will Alex's own heart be the prize to be won in this sensuous game of love?

Eloisa James - Once Upon a Tower
[U4-Text] To win her love ...
As an extremely wealthy laird, Gowan Stoughton, Duke of Kinross, can have any of the maidens at the ball he attends. The only problem is they are all English and Gowan is not so certain they are suitable. He is accustomed to the hard-working lasses from his Highlands, not these dainty noblewomen who spend their days drinking tea or some other such nonsense. But then he makes the acquaintance of Lady Edith Gilchrist. Utterly bewitched by the emerald-eyed beauty with lush golden locks, he knows he must have her.
He must free her from her tower ...
"Edie" had the misfortune of being dreadfully ill at her debut ball and barely remembers what Gowan looks like. Even worse, she accepted his proposal the following day. Edie's only true passion is playing music - until Gowan writes a scandalous letter and stirs the most irresistible desire. Yet when they marry, Edie realizes her husband needs a lesson and locks herself in a tower. Somehow Gowan must find a way to enter the tower and convince his new bride that she blongs in his arms.

Lisa Kleypas - Midnight Angel
[U4-Text] "There is something about her ..." he said thoughtfully, "I can't quite explain it. I'm convinced that she has lived through something extraordinary."
Lord Lucas Stokehurst is captivated by the gentle grace and regal beauty of "Miss Karen Billings," who appeared seemingly out of nowhere and now stands demurely before him.
Enchanted, the gallant, haunted widower impetuously offers her a position as governess to his young daughter, taking the lady of mystery into his home.
But "Miss Billings" has another name, Anastasia, and a dark past that pursues her still. Condemned for a crime she cannot remember, she barely escaped the gallows. And now she seeks shelter in the arms of a man devastated by tragedy, a man who must now defy society and the forces of vengeance to keep his lady safe and their bold new love alive.

Eloisa James - A Kiss at Midnight
[U4-Text] Miss Kate Daltry doesn't believe in fairy tales ... or happily ever after.
Forced by her stepmother to attend a ball, Kate meets a prince ... and decides he's anything but charming. A clash of wits and wills ensues, but they both know their irresistible attraction will lead nowhere. For Gabriel is promised to another woman - a princess whose hand in marriage will fulfill his ruthless ambitions.
Gabriel likes his fiancée, which is a welcome turn of events, but he doesn't love her. Obviously, he should be wooing his bride-to-be, not the witty, impoverished beauty who refuses to fawn over him.
Godmothers and glass slippers notwithstanding, this is one fairy tale in which destiny conspires to destroy any chance that Kate and Gabriel might have a happily ever after.
Unless a prince throws away everything that makes him noble...
Unless a dowry of an unruly heart trumps a fortune...
Unless one kiss at the stroke of midnight changes everything.

Mir gefällt in der Inhaltsangabe besonders der
"anything but charming"-Teil...

Lisa Kleypas - Mine Till Midnight
[U4-Text] Their Lives Defy Convention.

Their Desire Consumes Them Both...
Wealthy beyond most men's dreams, Cam has tired of society's petty restrictions and longs to return to his "uncivilized" Gypsy roots. When the delectable Amelia appeals to him for help, he intends to offer only friendship - but intentions are no match for the desire that blindsides them both. But can a man who spurns tradition be tempted into that most time-honored arrangement: marriage? Life in London society is about to get a whole lot hotter...
