Three Weeks With Lady X -
Eloisa JamesRelease Date: March 25, 2014
Having made a fortune, Thorn Dautry, the powerful bastard son of a duke, decides that he needs a wife. But to marry a lady, Thorn must acquire a gleaming, civilized façade, the specialty of Lady Xenobia India.
Exquisite, head-strong, and independent, India vows to make Thorn marriageable in just three weeks.
But neither Thorn nor India anticipate the forbidden passion that explodes between them.
Thorn will stop at nothing to make India his. Failure is not an option.
But there is only one thing that will make India his—the one thing Thorn can't afford to lose...
His fierce and lawless heart.
The hero of Three Weeks With Lady X is Tobias, the illegitimate son of the Duke of Villiers. Tobias appears in the last two books as a young boy.
Why Drea is waiting:
I vaguely remember Tobias from the one Eloisa James book I've read (another Desperate Duchess book). And I always like the "Hitch"-esque/romance guru trope, particularly when the guru is the opposite sex and they fall for each other. Plus I signed up for the historical romance challenge and haven't touched one yet this year!
Are you a fan of historical romance? What is your favorite trope?
