Mr. Cavendish, I Presume

Oh my goodness. I'm not even halfway done with the first novel of the above series and I'm already thinking about the second. I simply cannot wait 'til October 2008 when the novel is released. Julia Quinn is one of the authors who got me hooked on romance. I'm so glad she's back writing amazing literature. Err....at least, I hope it's good. I was disappointed with the last two books in the Bridgerton series. This series sounds very promising though and the novel above...oh, dear. I can't stand it. I'm so excited. I hope to see it in stores before my trip to Central Europe (More to come about my trip later). I'm leaving September 12 and am praying for a miracle. I need to read this on the plane. I must I must I must! As you can tell, my excitement for romance is back. I was a bit disillusioned and not even remotely inclined to read a romance novel for a while. That and a series of personal tragedies brought my life to a stand still. Now things are slightly back to normal. But enough about me.....

Here's a little sneak peek into MR. CAVENDISH, I PRESUME from Quinn's website:

There went the bride...

Amelia Willoughby has been engaged to the Duke of Wyndham for as long as she can remember. Literally. A mere six months old when the contracts were signed, she has spent the rest of her life waiting. And waiting. And waiting...for Thomas Cavendish, the oh-so-lofty duke, to finally get around to marrying her. But as she watches him from afar, she has a sneaking suspicion that he never thinks about her at all...

It's true. He doesn't. Thomas rather likes having a fiancée—all the better to keep the husband-hunters at bay—and he does intend to marry her...eventually. But just when he begins to realize that his bride might be something more than convenient, Thomas’s world is rocked by the arrival of his long-lost cousin, who may or may not be the true Duke of Wyndham. And if Thomas is not the duke, then he’s not engaged to Amelia. Which is the cruelest joke of all, because this arrogant and illustrious duke has made the mistake of falling in love...with his own fiancée!

Ahhhh....I feel like a little kid. My stomach has butterflies already.

I am so glad to read this review! Like you, I wasn't all to thrilled with the last few books in the Bridgerton series. But the woman can write a hella good romance novel. I especially liked Brighter Than The Sun - or something to that effect. It was phenomenal. Can't wait to read these books.. I didn't pick up the first in this series because I didn't like the Ms. Cheever book, either. Now, I can buy! Thanks!

I cannot wait for Thomas and Amelia's story. October seems like it's so far away.

So glad to see you posting again!

Welcome back :)

I absolutely adored The Lost Duke of Wyndham. I'm waiting on pins and needles for this one.

I think a lot of folks were disappointed in the last two Bridgertons, but TLDOW was pure romance. Can't wait for Mr. Cavendish.

I liked the "Lost Duke" as well, and I'm very excited for this book! I'm also excited because it comes out right around the time Julia Quinn speaks at the Emerald City Writer's Conference... and I'm going!

I plan to get a signed copy.
