Lusting for Covers: When the Duke was Wicked by Lorraine Heath (#147)

Lusting for Covers is a weekly meme, held on Sunday, that allows bloggers to share their current cover obsession with fellow book lovers.
This meme is hosted by TBQ @ TBQ's Book Palace.

Still on my historical kick and Lorraine Heath is usually a fave of mine. So, here is my selection:

Title: When the Duke was Wicked by Lorraine Heath
Publication: February 2014
Publisher: Avon
Series: Scandalous Gentleman of St. James
Genre: Historical

They are England’s most eligible bachelors, with the most scandalous reputations. But for the right woman, even an unrepentant rogue may mend his ways…

Lady Grace Mabry’s ample inheritance has made it impossible for her to tell whether a suitor is in love with her—or enamored of her riches. Who better to distinguish beau from blackguard than her notorious childhood friend, the Duke of Lovingdon?

With no interest in marriage, Lovingdon has long lived only for pleasure. He sees little harm in helping Grace find a proper match. After all, he’s familiar with all the ploys a scoundrel uses to gain a woman’s favor. He simply has to teach the lovely innocent how to distinguish honest emotions from false ones. How better than by demonstrating his wicked ways. But as lessons lead to torrid passion and Grace becomes ensnared in another man’s marriage plot, Lovingdon must wage a desperate gamble: Open his heart fully—or risk losing the woman he adores…


Right now I'm on a historical kick and I love Lorraine's books. Plus, this cover is so pretty and cheery. As we approach the winter months you'll probably see me posting happy cheery covers, because I'll be lusting after warmer weather. So, what do you all think? Let me know.


  1. Pretty---yes, I want to look at that, not think about the snow that will be hitting soon and sticking until late May. Ugh. Winter, winter, go away.... Lovely choice this week, Melody, thanks for participating! :)


  2. I just love this cover! Heath is one of my favorite authors, I don't think there is a book by her I haven't enjoyed. I just love historical romance, so nice choice. I like the warm colors, reminds me of spring. Love your blog, following you through bloglovin!
