Oh, today is a gorgeous day! I got one of those fabulous packages today…the ones that never get old…the giant ones that include a stack of cover flats, all gorgeous and designed by the unparalleled Avon Books design team…with pearly paper and foiled (SO PINK AND AWESOME!!!!) lovely text and official, bona-fide romance author photo and bio.
AND...I also received FOUR Advance Readers Copies of One Good Earl Deserves a Lover! WHAT?!
Best. Day. Ever.
Look! A photo!
I have gushed and gushed over this cover for MONTHS and then, finally, last week, all over the Internet. But today...I get to share the cover copy (and plot) with you for the first time!
Lady Philippa Marbury is...odd.
The brilliant, bespectacled daughter of a double marquess cares more for books than balls, for science than the season, and for laboratories than love. She's looking forward to marrying her simple fiancé and living out her days quietly with her dogs and her scientific experiments. But before that, Pippa has two weeks to experience all the rest--fourteen days to research the exciting parts of life. It's not much time, and to do it right she needs a guide familiar with London's darker corners.
She needs...a Scoundrel.
She needs Cross, the clever, controlled partner in London's most exclusive gaming hell, with a carefully crafted reputation for wickedness. But reputations often hide the darkest secrets, and when the unconventional Pippa boldly propositions him, seeking science without emotion, she threatens all he works to protect. He is tempted to give Pippa precisely what she wants...but the scoundrel is more than he seems, and it will take every ounce of willpower to resist giving the lady more than she ever imagined.
I confess, I kind of love these two together...they might be my favorite couple yet. Oh...would you like to see them together? And HAWT? Ok...here!
YOWZA, right?! That all said, since I have a big stack of covers and FOUR ARCs, how about a giveaway?
