One new book you're not going to want to miss is The Seduction of Sebastian St. James by Rachel Van Dyken, releasing on Amazon and Barnes and Noble today. I read an advance copy, and I can tell you first hand -- it's amazing!
It is the second installment of the House of Renwick series, which began with The Ugly Duckling Debutante (released in September 2011). The third book is already in the works and a fourth is in the planning stages. *Happy Dance*
The Seduction of Sebastian St. James
When the angelic Duke of Tempest, Sebastian St. James, appeared unexpectedly at his boyhood friend’s home, he had but one goal: Find a suitable wife as soon as possible. However, his impeccable reputation made him a prime target for ambitious mothers of debutante daughters. He needed a plan.
Help came in the form of an unlikely alliance with Miss Emma Gates, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy viscount, who has deemed herself on the shelf, and only wants to marry in order to appease her parents. Together they could sort through the mire of would-be mates to find their perfect matches. That is, if they could keep their hands off each other long enough to pursue likely candidates.
When a man from Emma’s past makes a play for her hand, the truth about her life threatens to destroy Sebastian’s reputation, a reputation he has carefully guarded since his youth. In the end, the Angel Duke has to make a choice that will end up changing his reputation forever.
