Blog Ahead Challenge!


I love the idea for this challenge from Herding Cats, Burning Soup because I'm incredibly unorganised when it comes to blogging. Plus I have lots of reviews to catch up on so hopefully this will help!

The idea is that during November I'll create 30 pre-scheduled posts to go live after November. So, if I start the month with 5, I'll finish with 35.
I currently have...zero pre-scheduled posts. I told you I was lazy.

I'll use this post to keep anyone interested updated in my progress and how I'm finding it. I expect it may just entail a lot of whining from me...

If you click on the image above it'll take you to the sign up post for more information. 

Wish me luck!

In the third novel in Maya Rodale’s charming Wallflower series, London’s Least Likely to Be Caught in a Compromising Position finds temptation in a devilishly handsome stranger . . .

Miss Prudence Merryweather Payton has a secret.

Everyone knows that she’s the only graduate from her finishing school to remain unwed on her fourth season-but no one knows why. With her romantic illusions shattered after being compromised against her will, Prudence accepts a proposal even though her betrothed is not exactly a knight in shining armor. When he cowardly pushes her out of their stagecoach to divert a highwayman, she vows never to trust another man again.

John Roark, Viscount Castleton, is nobody’s hero.

He’s a blue-eyed charmer with a mysterious past and ambitious plans for his future-that do not include a wife. When he finds himself stranded at a country inn with a captivating young woman, a delicate dance of seduction ensues. He knows he should keep his distance. And he definitely shouldn’t start falling in love with her.

When Prudence’s dark past comes back to haunt her, John must protect her-even though he risks revealing his own secrets that could destroy his future.

Excerpt

Ever since her first season, Miss Prudence Merryweather Payton had known that she would never marry. By her third season, she had made peace with the sad truth that love and marriage were not in the cards for her. Which was fine. FINE. Truly, she was not bothered in the slightest at the prospect of a long, boring spinsterhood. Why, think of all the needlepoint or charity work she might do. Or so she had thought. But that was before the invitation had arrived. A delicately-worded missive, written in an elegant script inviting her to the 100th anniversary of her finishing school, Lady Penelope’s Finishing School For Young Ladies of Fine Families. With that invitation came the mortifying and heartbreaking truth: no graduate had ever taken more than four seasons to land a husband.

Except for Prudence. Until recently, she not alone in her matrimonial failures—her friends Emma and Olivia were also Wallflowers with hardly any suitors among them. Prudence envisioned a future for the three of them, living happily in a cottage by the sea. She had known this invitation, this ball, this moment would come, but Prudence always thought she’d confront it with her very best friends by her side. But then Emma landed a Duke and Olivia found love with the most unlikely man. She was happy for her friends—truly. No one deserved love and happiness more than Emma and Olivia.

Now Prudence was on her own. The last wallflower.

Book Review: What a Lady Most Desires by Lecia Cornwall



What a Lady Most Desires (Temberlay #3)
Author: Lecia Cornwall
Publisher: Avon
Release Date: 26 August 2014

True desire always finds a way...

On the night before the final battle against Napoleon, Lady Delphine St. James finds herself dancing with the one man she has always wanted, Major Lord Stephen Ives. He makes it clear he has no time for a lady he sees as flirtatious and silly, but as the call to arms sounds, she bids him farewell with a kiss that stirs them both. When he returns gravely injured, she is intent on caring for him, even if his surly behavior tests her patience.

After the battle, Stephen is not only wounded and blind, but falsely accused of cowardice and theft. The only light in his dark world is Delphine, the one woman he never imagined he could desire. But she deserves more than he can give her.

As their feelings deepen and hidden enemies conspire to force them to part forever, can their love survive the cruelest test of all?
