Bookish just named Wilde in Love as one of their Must Reads of Fall 2017!

You can also pre-order at all online retailers.

Here’s something fun that was just added to Eloisa’s website in honor of her upcoming new Georgian-set series: Georgian jokes! Georgians loved to laugh and bawdy jokes were among their favorites, so we compiled a few of Eloisa’s favorites.
Please accept our sincere apologies for the mistake in yesterday’s newsflash. We incorrectly stated that the Kindle version of Four Nights with the Duke was on sale. The paperback version is on sale for $4.83. We apologize for any confusion or inconvenience.

If you don’t have Four Nights with the Duke yet, the paperback version is only $4.83! We don’t know how long the markdown will last. If you have read it, we would be hugely grateful if you wrote a review and toppled the book over 400 reviews! It’s almost there!
Do you remember Edie from Once Upon a Tower and her love of the cello? Eloisa created a playlist of the music Edie loved and would have played.
