Waiting on Wednesday


Brought to you by Breaking the Spine

Anne Wynter’s job as governess to three highborn young ladies can be a challenge – in a single week she finds herself hiding in a closet full of tubas, playing an evil queen in a play and tending to the wounds of the oh-so-dashing Earl of Winstead. After years of dodging unwanted advances, he’s the first man who has truly tempted her, and it’s getting harder and harder to remind herself that a governess has no business flirting with a nobleman.

Daniel Smythe-Smith might be in mortal danger, but that’s not going to stop the young earl from falling in love. And when he spies a mysterious woman at his family’s annual musicale, he vows to pursue her. But Daniel has an enemy, one who has vowed to see him dead. And when Anne is thrown into peril, he will stop at nothing to ensure their happy ending . . .

I read the first book in this series, Just Like Heaven, and decided to read all of Ms. Quinn’s books. This series is an offshoot of her Bridgerton series, which I LOVED.  I don’t read enough historical fiction, and she never disappoints! 

release date:  June 7, 2012

    I LOVE that you have a WordPress blog! Seriously, LOVE!! There aren’t nearly enough out there. And Julia Quinn – You own this week’s WOW. I love her. Not every of her books is perfect, but they never fail to entertain me. (My favorite so far is The Lost Duke of Wyndham; I loved it so much that I gave it away in my January Giveaway, too. XD)

    I’m about to read Just Like Heaven, which I recently got. *happy sigh*

    Happy Wednesday!

    My WOW

    I’ve never read anything by Julia Quinn by I used to have a mad love affair with historical romance/fiction… I practically memorized all of Judith McNaught’s regency period books when I was an older teen/young adult. I may have to keep an eye out for Quinn’s novels whenever I feel the need for some historical fiction; this one sounds right up my alley!

    I love your choice. This is the first time that I have heard of this series. I just added book one and two to the TBR. Thanks for sharing it.
