Waiting on Wednesday (#8): A Shocking Delight by Jo Beverley


"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…
A Shocking Delight (Company of Rogues, #15)

A Shocking Delight by Jo Beverley
Publisher: Signet
Publication date: April 1, 2014
Series: Company of Rogues #15
Amazon | Goodreads 


From five-time RITA Award winner Jo Beverley comes an exciting new Regency romance in which a lady must risk all to win love.

The man she shouldn’t want. The woman he shouldn’t marry...

David Kerslake, smuggling master from The Dragon's Bride, is now Earl of Wyvern and must survive the ton as well as the Preventive Officers.

Lucy Potter, daughter of a wealthy merchant, is more interested in trade than in the men after her dowry. When forced to have a London season, she sets out to enjoy herself rather than to find a husband. But once she meets the notorious Earl of Wyvern, her resolve weakens, and when they kiss, it dissolves—even though her instincts warn he’s dangerous.

Wyvern has a dark secret, which means he must win a rich bride. Lucinda Potter seems ideal. Not for her beauty and her lively charm, but because at first meeting she seems unlikely to realize the truth.

As he comes to know her, however, as they spar and kiss, he realizes she’s too clever and honest by far. Marrying Lucy would mean living a lie with the woman he has come to love...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well, by stats alone, the fact that Jo Beverley won the prestigious RITA award five times and nominated many more has to count for something, right? For those who have not read her books, that is prove enough. I have read her books and immense enjoy the rich and accurate historical details in her books, as well as a great depth of characterization and plot. The prose itself is superb as well, giving an authentic feel which is nice given that she lives in the UK. ^_^ In any case, the cover and blurb quite convinced me to read this. And, having read from her blog post that the heroine was considered too pretty and therefore empty-headed by others, it is too intriguing to pass up. :)

So...what book are you waiting for?
