Are you dying to read Too Wilde to Wed…before anyone else? Eloisa’s Five Fabulous Things will go out later today—be sure to open, because you have a chance to win 1 of 5 advance copies!
Team Eloisa is quite jealous of Eloisa, because she’s attending the cover shoot for the third Wilde book today! Do you remember the video from the Wilde in Love shoot? If you missed it, it’s still available on Eloisa’s website. Hubba Hubba is all we have to say about that.
We are very happy to share that the Wildes are so popular that Harper Collins asked for three more Wildes of Lindow Castle! Team Eloisa is hoping for even more than six. Who doesn’t want to see Artie in the ballroom instead of the nursery?
The countdown to Too Wilde to Wed has begun! We’re planning website updates, social media goodies and of course, reminding Eloisa to write the next thirty pages to Wilde Denial. If you’ve preordered Too Wilde, make sure you register it on the website so you get the free story. How is Eloisa possibly going to top that sexy snow scene?
The stepback for Too Wilde to Wed is now on Eloisa’s website for you to enjoy. The artist did a great job capturing North and Diana—especially the fiery red hair she used to cover up with a wig!
We are just wild about Booklist’s starred review of Too Wilde to Wed here at Team Eloisa! This sentence is so fabulous we couldn’t even trim it down. “James again elevates historical romance to sublime new heights through the lithe elegance of her writing, her exceptional gift for creating richly nuanced characters, and her ability to flawlessly marry potent sensuality with a deliciously dry sense of humor.” Have you preordered this “sublime” novel yet and registered your preorder so you receive the next installment of Wilde Denial?
Are you on Instagram? Eloisa’s having a blast sharing some of her favorite books, reader art, fun with her author friends and loads of giveaways! You can follow her at @eloisajamesbooks.
The next edition of Eloisa’s Five Fabulous Things will be going out in a couple days. Make sure you open it! We’re sharing a tidbit from Too Wilde to Wed and Eloisa’s giving away five coin purses she picked up in Italy to share with readers!
Audible has just released their Romance Essentials list – the 50 books they believe are must-listens for romance fans. We are excited to say that they included Desperate Duchesses! They gave it a lovely review too. “Lady Roberta St. Giles has led a sheltered life and has very specific plans for the sedate married life she seeks. But Damon Reeve, the Earl of Gryffyn, has other plans for the young woman, who goes from a potential plaything to his beloved, even as she comes to see that he’s the one for her. Historic romance queen Eloisa James kicks off this new Georgian series by proving why she’s known for richly woven regency stories with an interesting cast of characters and delightfully witty dialogue, as Rosalyn Landor embraces it all and immerses you in the period and wraps you in their delicious spark.”
You can buy this “richly woven regency story” for only $4.95 for two more days. The sale ends on February 25. You do have to be a member of Audible to purchase, but you can try them for free for 30 days! If you’d like to sample Desperate Duchesses, here is a short audio excerpt on Eloisa’s website.
Do you like to listen to a story as if you were eavesdropping into another world? I have fabulous news: Audible put the audio version of Desperate Duchesses on sale for only $4.95! The sale runs until February 25.
Talking of inexpensive pleasures, my latest anthology, Midsummer Delights, is now available and is only 99¢. All three short stories are sweet and sexy—the perfect size to read while waiting in line or in the subway.
On a celebratory front, All About Romance included Wilde in Love in their Top Picks for 2017! The reviewer said that Wilde “left [her] with a big smile.” And Parth Sterling has been nominated for Best Character in a Supporting Role in the 2017 Bookish Awards! Want to put in a word for Parth? Voting is open until March 2.
How about giving yourself a Valentine’s Day present? Midsummer Delights costs less than a box of chocolate, and it has three short delightful stories that will leave your heart dancing with delight. Worried you’ve read them already? All three stories have only been available in limited release until now.
Do you remember the rascals who labeled Josie Essex a Scottish Sausage? Josie and the Earl of Mayne make an appearance in A Midsummer Night’s Delight, supporting Miss Cecilia Bellingsworth when she transforms, a la Cinderella, and dazzles a room full of gentlemen. This novella was included in the (digital only) Essex Sisters Companion Guide.
In At Midnight, Eloisa gives us another twist on Cinderella! Miss Penelope White takes fate and love into her own hands and filches one shoe from her true love, Elias Hempleworth-Gray. This fun, sweet story was included in the (print only) Fairy Tale sampler.
Violet Leighton and Rothwell Talcott had a perfect love affair—until Rothwell left for a year, and that year turned to four. Violet was left broken-hearted and with her virtue in tatters. Now that he’s back home—and a duke—will Violet ever be able to forgive him? Ever After has been available only in the print edition of The Ugly Duchess until now!
Being (most inconveniently) a virgin who had never even been kissed, Cecilia was uncertain about her ability to seduce a gentleman.
Dear Readers, please meet Cecilia from the short story, A Midsummer Night’s Disgrace. Newly posted is the excerpt from Midsummer Delights, a delightful treasure of three stories with a Cinderella twist. Readers need only wait until February 6 for the ebook. Pre-ordering is available!
