LETTURE D'OTTOBRE..le redattrici di ALL ABOUT ROMANCE non vedono l'ora di leggere...

Le redattrici di All About Romance , che come sapete è uno dei siti di recensioni romance più famosi, stilano ogni mese le loro 'liste dei desideri'. Quali romanzi, in uscita negli States questo mese, la ladies di AAR non stanno più nella pelle di leggere? Eccoli qui!
Ho deciso di proporvi quelli a mio avviso più interessanti, perchè è giusto dare qualche consiglio di lettura anche alle amiche che come me e Vivienne leggono in inglese. Ci sono diverse novità interessanti...tipo il nuovo di Liz Carlyle o la tradizionale raccolta di Regencies natalizi ( con romanzo della Balogh incluso!) Iniziamo dagli storici e... buone future letture a tutte!


JULIA JUSTICE - From Waif to Gentleman's Wife

When a destitute governess faints on Sir Edward Greaves's threshold, chivalry demands that he offer her temporary shelter. However, the desire Ned feels when he catches her in his arms isn't at all gentlemanly.. With her large, troubled eyes and slender frame, Joanna Merrill calls to something deep inside this guarded man. For one who has purposely shunned the conniving beauties of London society, just how much is Ned risking by having this intriguing woman under his roof?






JANE GOODGER- A Christmas Scandal

Dashing, debonair, and completely irresistible, Edward Hollings has all of Newport buzzing--and to Maggie Pierce's surprise, she alone has caught his eye. But when the handsome earl returns to England without proposing, a devastated Maggie knows she must forget him. Life only gets worse for Maggie, as all her dreams of happiness and love come crashing down around her. When Maggie receives an invitation to go to England for the Christmas birth of her dear friend's baby, she accepts--vowing to keep her devastating lies and shameful secrets from the one man she has ever loved. Edward vowed he'd never marry, but he came dangerously close with Maggie. She's beautiful, witty, indescribably desirable--and Edward can't forget her. When Maggie visits mutual friends for Christmas, Edward can't stay away. In fact, he finds himself more attracted to her than ever--a desire fueled even more by Maggie's repeated snubs. With the love he never thought he'd find slipping away, Edward is determined to make Maggie his own, no matter what the cost. . .


LIZ CARLYLE - Wicked All Day

The beautiful Miss Zoe Armstrong is rich, spoiled, impulsive and desperately illegitimate. Though Zoe burns bright as the most vibrant diamonds, all the money in the world won't buy her what she secretly desires, to be loved for who she is. But when a night of passion leads to Zoe's betrothal to her distant cousin, her perfect world is turned upside down and shattered before her very eyes. Lord Robert Rowland has been Zoe's partner in crime since childhood. When he sees his cousin in tears at a ball, what else can he do but console her by doing what Robin always does best. But a rogue's chivalry can have unexpected consequences, not the least of which is the loss of his one true love. Suddenly, Zoe finds herself on the verge of marrying a broken man and the only solace she can find is in the arms of Lord Robert's older brother, the stern and powerful Marquess of Mercer.


LISA KLEYPAS - Tempt Me At Twilight

Poppy Hathaway loves her unconventional family, though she longs for normalcy. Then fate leads to a meeting with Harry Rutledge, an enigmatic hotel owner and inventor with wealth, power, and a dangerous hidden life. When their flirtation compromises her own reputation, Poppy shocks everyone by accepting his proposal—only to find that her new husband offers his passion, but not his trust.

Harry was willing to do anything to win Poppy—except to open his heart. All his life, he has held the world at arm’s length…but the sharp, beguiling Poppy demands to be his wife in every way that matters. Still, as desire grows between them, an enemy lurks in the shadows. Now if Harry wants to keep Poppy by his side, he must forge a true union of body and soul, once and for all...


Questa è la copertina dell'edizione inglese...bella vero???


TESSA DARE - A lady of Persuasion

Only one thing could convince Sir Tobias Aldridge, an incorrigible rake, to profess undying fidelity to a woman he’s just met. Revenge. What better way to get back at his enemy, than by stealing the scoundrel’s sister? Not that Toby finds it a chore, seducing a beguiling, sultry beauty freshly arrived from the West Indies. When the prize is Isabel Grayson, vengeance is doubly rewarding.Isabel is determined to marry a wealthy, powerful lord and become a lady of influence, using her rank and fortune to fight social injustice. Sir Toby, with his paltry title and infamous reputation, is unsuitable husband material—but he makes her blood race, her heart pound, and her long-buried passions come to the surface. If she can reform the charming devil, she’ll get exactly what she craves: society’s respect. But it’s a dangerous gamble. For if Toby wins this battle of persuasion, Isabel could lose her heart.

Molto bella anche questa copertina!

Uhmmm, ce n'è davvero per tutti i gusti! Io quello di Liz Carlyle l'ho già messo nel carrello degli acquisti e mi arriverà a giorni. Nella prossima 'lista della spesa' non mi spiacerebbe metterne qualche altro...ci sono quei romantic suspense con quelle belle copertine invitanti che non nascondo hanno pungolato la mia curiosità e poi il nuovo di Lisa Kleypas...

Ho capito, la mia wish list del prossimo mese si allungherà ancora...(chi ha la mania dell'acquisto come me mi potrà capire, solo rimane da vedere quando potrò trovare il tempo per leggerli tutti!)

Vi ispira qualche titolo fra questi consigliati dalle Ladies di AAR?

  7. Ho acquistato proprio ieri mattina nella libreria Feltrinelli International il romanzo "TEMPT ME AT TWILIGHT" di Lisa Kleypas. La mia è l'edizione americana St. Martin's Paperbacks e il riassunto della trama differisce completamente, Francy. Ci sarà un equivoco?
    Ti scrivo, di seguito, la nota di copertina:
    "Poppy Hathaway loves her unconventional family, though she longs for normalcy. Then fate leads to a meeting with Harry Rutledge, an enigmatic hotel owner and inventor with wealth, power, and a dangerous hidden life. When her flirtation compromises her own reputation, Poppy shocks everyone by accepting his proposal - only to find that her new husband offers his passion, but not his trust.
    Harry was willing to do anything to win Poppy - except to open his heart.

Still, as desire grows between them, an enemy lurks in the shadows. Now if Harry wants to keep Poppy by his side, he must forge a true union of body and soul, once and for all..."

  8. SUPER GRAZIE FRANCESCA PER LA SEGNALAZIONE!

    Naturalmente hai ragione tu, chissà perchè ho abbinato quella trama a questo romanzo, forse si riferisce ad un'altro della Kleypas che ho preso per errore (capita, ma per fortuna possoo affidamento sull'occhietto di lince delle mie care lettrici!)

    Franci, una volta che l'hai letto, questo della Kleypas, vogliamo sapere com'è, eh?! Aspettiamo un tuo commento.

    Baci
