Thanks to everyone for stopping by the blog. My featured authors next week will be paranormal historical romance writer Donna Grant and historical romance writer Jannine Corti-Petska. Be sure to visit!
I’m thrilled that my friend and acclaimed historical romance author Miranda Neville is on the blog with us today. Miranda writes sexy and witty romances that are rich in history. Her first book, Never Resist Temptation, was published in 2009 to great reviews, and with each book those fab accolades continue to roll in. Take, for instance, The Wild Marquis, book one in her Burgundy Club Series.
This is the book that New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James called “sizzling, addictive, and deeply romantic…a joy to read.”
“Filled with secrets, mystery, romance, sizzling love scenes, witty, realistic dialogue, an imaginative plot and charismatic characters, this lighthearted story is captivating. A riveting novel, I hated to see it end. Do not miss THE WILD MARQUIS. It is a keeper!” — 5 ribbons, Romance Junkies
As you might guess, it’s already gotten great reviews, including this one from Romance Novel News:
“Fans of historical romance should not miss “Confessions from an Arranged Marriage.” Miranda Neville has crafted a magnificent story with a wonderfully emotional romance and a flawed, yet unforgettable hero. This is a story that will tug on the heartstrings, cause emotional heartbreak, but in the end satisfy on almost every level. “
And here’s the blurb:
They couldn’t be more different, but there’s one thing they agree on.
In London after a two-year exile, Lord Blakeney plans to cut a swathe through the bedchambers of the demimonde. Marriage is not on his agenda, especially to an annoying chit like Minerva Montrose, with her superior attitude and a tendency to get into trouble. And certainly the last man Minerva wants is Blake, a careless wastrel without a thought in his handsome head.
The heat and noise of her debutante ball give Minerva a migraine. Surely a moment’s rest could do no harm … until Blake mistakes her for another lady, leaving Minerva’s guests to catch them in a very compromising position. To her horror, the scandal will force them to do the unthinkable: marry. Their mutual loathing blazes into unexpected passion but Blake remains distant, desperate to hide a shameful secret. Minerva’s never been a woman to take things lying down, and she’ll let nothing stop her from winning his trust … and his heart.
I don’t know about you, but I love the theme of arranged marriages and marriages of convenience, and this one is sure to please. And I love Miranda’s books. If you like intelligent, sexy historical romance, I think you’ll love them too!
For my readers today, Miranda is giving away a copy of Confessions from an Arranged Marriage. Let’s continue talking about this theme. What’s your favorite marriage of convenience story, either historical, contemporary, or paranormal? There are lots of good ones out there, so let’s start listing them! One person who comments will win a copy of Miranda’s book.
