Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted by Breaking The Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we’re looking forward to.
This week’s can’t-wait-to-read selection is:
Title: Cold-Hearted Rake
Author: Lisa Kleypas
Release Date: October 27, 2015
A twist of fate . . .
Devon Ravenel, London’s most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities . . . and more than a few surprises. His estate is saddled with debt, and the late earl’s three innocent sisters are still occupying the house . . . along with Kathleen, Lady Trenear, a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon’s own.
A clash of wills . . .
Kathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon. But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny—and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her. As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction, only one question remains:
Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she’s ever known?
Why I’m looking forward to it:
I’m a new convert to Lisa Kleypas, but I love her. As far as I can tell, this isn’t part of any series, or if it is, it’s the first, so either way, I don’t have to worry that I’m missing any backstory. And as great as her contemporaries are (and they really, really are) historical romance is where she shines. I’m really excited for this one!
