Waiting on Wednesday #22: The Accidental Duchess by Madeline Hunter

"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 Accidental Duchess by Madeline Hunter
Publisher: Jove
Publication date: June 3, 2014
Series: Fairbourne Quartet #4
Amazon | Goodreads 

When Lady Lydia Thornton is blackmailed over the shocking contents of a manuscript she once wrote, she must go to the most desperate of measures to raise the money to buy back the ill-considered prose: agreeing to an old wager posed by the arrogant, dangerous Duke of Penthurst. At least Penthurst is a man she wouldn’t mind fleecing—and she’s confident she’ll win.

Penthurst long ago concluded Lydia was a woman in search of ruinous adventure, but even he is surprised when she arrives at his house ready to bet her innocence against his ten thousand pounds—a wager he only proposed to warn her off gambling.

When she loses to a simple draw of the cards, Lydia is shocked. Now, her problems are twofold: a blackmailer determined to see her pay and a duke determined to tame her rebellious ways. One misstep and Lydia could find herself ruined—or bound to the seductive man who would make her his duchess.

I've reviewed one of Madeline Hunter's books, The Counterfeit Mistress, for Romance Junkies, and this is the third in her Fairbourne Quartet. All the characters in this series have been there since book 1, and the heroine of this book is the sister to the hero of book 2, The Conquest of Lady Cassandra. I'm intrigued. :)

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