Announcing the October book club pick: What I Did for a Duke by Julie Anne Long!
For years, he's been an object of fear, fascination . . . and fantasy. But of all the wicked rumors that shadow the formidable Alexander Moncrieffe, Duke of Falconbridge, the ton knows one thing for certain: only fools dare cross him. And when Ian Eversea does just that, Moncrieffe knows the perfect revenge: he'll seduce Ian's innocent sister, Genevieve—the only Eversea as yet untouched by scandal. First he'll capture her heart . . . and then he'll break it.
But everything about Genevieve is unexpected: the passion simmering beneath her cool control, the sharp wit tempered by gentleness . . . And though Genevieve has heard the whispers about the duke's dark past, and knows she trifles with him at her peril, one incendiary kiss tempts her deeper into a world of extraordinary sensuality. Until Genevieve is faced with a fateful choice . . . is there anything she won't do for a duke?
There were moments when I read this book that I laughed aloud so hard my kids came running because the tv wasn't supposed to be on and clearly I had to be watching tv to be laughing that hard. I found this book to be hilarious and fun and smart and so entertaining – and I cannot wait to discuss it!
PLUS, it's already on sale for $.99c US – so with the AllRomance rebate, the after-rebate cost is .50c. How awesome is that?
PLUS, Avon was kind enough to give me 7 paper copies, and I'm kicking in 10 digital copies to give away right now! Just tell me in the comments What You Would Do for What I Did for a Duke (and please include the format you prefer) and you're entered to win. I'll select the winners using Ye Olde Randome Integere Generatorrre on Thursday, October 4.
