TBT: Throwdown Challenge Rake v. Love Letters

Keeping up with my #TBT retrospective of The Bachelor Chronicles in preparation for the release of Mad About the Major, I’ve always found it interesting how divided readers can be about their deep and abiding affection for either This Rake of Mine or Love Letters from a Duke, the 2nd and 3rd installments in the Bachelor Chronicles series.

I call it Rake v. Love Letters.

Personally I think it really divides this way:

Team Mad Jack v. Team Felicity
Now what isn’t to love about Mad Jack Tremont? He’s a rake, (hence the title, This Rake of Mine) and a very reluctant hero and just so darn sexy. I absolutely loved him the moment he walked on the stage in Something about Emmaline. Plus, his story has that whole gothic thing going for it–the creepy house that you shouldn’t go into iIMG_6631f you’re a proper young lady and you just know he’s up to no good. (We also see our first glimpses of Arabella Tremont and her starchy father, the Duke of Parkerton–but more on them in the coming weeks.)

But then there is Felicity and her infamous correspondence that gives us our story, Love Letters from a Duke. And she has got to be hands down one of my most popular heroines. I do like her conflict of trying to do what is best and right, but in the end following her heart. She makes the right choice and her heart is always in the right place. I think readers have always loved her determined spirit, and her stubborn blindside as to what is right in front of her. And of course, it helps that Thatcher is right there to steer a bit for her. (That scene near the opening where she hires him because he fits the coat still cracks me up.)

So what team are you on? And yes, you can play on both sides if you want. I won’t tell.

This Rake of MineComment down below before the end of Sunday, and one lucky poster will win an autographed copy of either Love Letters from a Duke or This Rake of Mine. Check back Monday, May 4th to see if you’ve won.

TBT: Something About Emmaline

With Mad About the Major only a few weeks away from arriving on an ereader near you, I thought I would look back at the Bachelor Chronicles–starting with the first book, Something About Emmaline.

If you’ve never read this one, I have to say: what are you waiting for? Emmaline is one of my most favorite heroines–I adore how they first meet–Alex arriving at his London town house to find it in the throes of being redecorated and a woman in his bed. A woman who claims to be his wife:

“Yes, thank you,” she replied. “When my husband returns from Westmoreland, rest assured, he will kill you.”

“Have you ever considered, Lady Sedgwick, that perhaps he already has?”

“Has what?” she asked, the pistol trembling anew in her hand.

“Returned.”

It was at that moment that Emmaline Denford, Lady Sedgwick realized she was about to shoot her husband.

The very notion startled her so much, she dropped the pistol. And then the damned thing fired for her.

Card shark, con artist, beauty and unrepentant redecorater, I love how she turns Alexander’s life upside down. Read the full excerpt and order a copy today–all eight stories from the Bachelor Chronicles await you–and there is no better place to start than at the beginning.

Win an autographed copy of Something About Emmaline! Answer the question below before April 27th, and one lucky poster will win an autographed book. Winner will be posted on Monday, April 27th.

Question: Have you read Emmaline? Or any of the Bachelor Chronicles?
