My love for romance goes hand in hand with my love for fairy tales-after all, don’t all romances contain an element of fairy tale true love and that magical happily ever after ending? 😀
Well, Eloisa James has got a great series of Fairy Tale romances (which began with A Kiss at Midnight and When Beauty Tamed the Beast), which adapt the idea of the classic Fairy Tale to make it fresh once more! Sounds delicious right? Enjoy a sneak peek at her next romance and see if you can guess which tale this one is based on! 😉
He is a duke in search of a perfect bride.
She is a lady—but a long way from perfect.
Tarquin, the powerful Duke of Sconce, knows perfectly well that the decorous and fashionably slender Georgiana Lytton will make him a proper duchess. So why can’t he stop thinking about her twin sister, the curvy, headstrong, and altogether unconventional Olivia? Not only is Olivia betrothed to another man, but their improper, albeit intoxicating, flirtation makes her unsuitability all the more clear.
Determined to make a perfect match, he methodically cuts Olivia from his thoughts, allowing logic and duty to triumph over passion…Until, in his darkest hour, Tarquin begins to question whether perfection has anything to do with love.
To win Olivia’s hand he would have to give up all the beliefs he holds most dear, and surrender heart, body and soul…
Unless it’s already too late.
