This Week Selection:

It Started with a Scandal by Julie Anne Long
Publisher: Avon (Mar 2015)
Series: Pennyroyal, 10
Genre: Historical


Lord Philippe Lavay once took to the high seas armed with charm as lethal as his sword and a stone-cold conviction: he'll restore his family's fortune and honor, no matter the cost. Victory is at last within reach--when a brutal attack snatches it from his grasp and lands him in Pennyroyal Green.

An afternoon of bliss brings a cascade of consequences for Elise Fountain. Shunned by her family and ousted from a job she loves, survival means a plummet down the social ladder to a position no woman has yet been able to keep: housekeeper to a frighteningly formidable prince.

The bold and gentle Elise sees past his battered body into Philippe's barricaded heart...and her innate sensuality ignites his blood. Now a man who thought he could never love and a woman who thought she would never again trust must fight an incendiary passion that could be the ruin of them both.

I love the teal color of the dress, and I also love that it's looks like she's standing a ballroom. Overall, it's a beautiful cover. Anyway, what are you all lusting for?


  1. Oh, I love the dress -- it's blue! :) I haven't read JAL before, but I have most of her previous books on my Kindle. I've heard great things about them.


  2. Oh that is gorgeous! I would love a building like that. Such a statement!
