Waiting on Wednesday #10: The Unexpected Duchess by Valerie Bowman


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week an upcoming book I can’t wait to read is…

The Unexpected Duchess by Valerie Bowman
Publisher: St. Martin's Press
Publication date: April 29, 2014
Amazon | Goodreads 


Is there any greater surprise than falling deeply, madly in love?

In This Battle of Wits

Lady Lucy Upton’s tongue may be too sharp to attract suitors but her heart is good, and when her painfully shy friend Cassandra needs help she devises a brilliant scheme to help her discourage an unwanted suitor, the Duke of Claringdon. Lucy will hide behind the hedgerow and tell Cass just what to say to discourage the duke…but it turns out that he’s made of sterner stuff than either of them anticipated. And Lucy is shocked to discover that tangling with the tenacious man is the most fun she’s had in ages.

Kisses Are the Best Weapon

Lord Derek Hunt made a promise to his dying friend to marry the demure Cassandra, and for a man who wants nothing more than peace and quiet after the horrors of war, she’ll make the perfect bride. If only the impudent Miss Upton will let him court the girl! Doing battle is the last thing on his mind, but bantering with Lucy behind the bushes is too tempting to resist. And the spoils of this war just may be true love…

I really like this theme of a reverse Cyrano, as well as the heroine trying to warn her friend off the hero only to fall in love with him herself. Valerie Bowman write humorous and fun stories so I'm really looking forward to this one.

Thanks for visiting my blog to see what book I'm waiting for this week! So...what book are you waiting for?

  3. This sounds really good. I don't get to see too many people pick Historical Romance often. Every once in a while I like reading historical romances.
