Three Weeks with Lady XTHREE WEEKS WITH LADY X by Eloisa James
Series: Desperate Duchesses by the Numbers, #1
Publication Date: March 25th 2014 by Avon

Summary: 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.

Heroine: India is definitely a memorable heroine. For starters, she’s an interior designer, a very uncommon career path of the time. Left without a dowry after her parents’ untimely death, India established her career and made her own fortune. She’s a self-made woman, but she’s aware that she isn’t perfect and has a lot more to learn.

When the Duke Returns by Eloisa JamesWHEN THE DUKE RETURNS by Eloisa James
Series: Desperate Duchesses, #4
Publication Date: November 25th 2008 by Avon

Summary: The Duchess of Cosway yearns for a man she has never met . . . her husband.

Married by proxy as a child, Lady Isidore has spent years fending off lecherous men in every European court while waiting to meet her husband. She’s determined to accept him, no matter how unattractive the duke turns out to be. When she finally lures Simeon Jermyn back to London, his dark handsomeness puts Isidore’s worst fears to rest—until disaster strikes.

The duke demands an annulment.

Forsaking his adventuresome past, Simeon has returned to London ready to embrace the life of a proper duke, only to find that his supposed wife is too ravishing, too headstrong, and too sensual to be the docile duchess he has in mind. But Isidore will not give up her claim to the title—or him—without a fight.

She will do whatever it takes to capture Simeon’s heart, even if it means sacrificing her virtue. After all, a consummated marriage cannot be annulled.

Yet in forcing Simeon into a delicious surrender, will Isidore risk not only her dignity—but her heart?

My list hasn’t changed much since the last year. The only new authors on the list are Maggie Stiefvater and Eloisa James.

The Raven Boys by Maggie StiefvaterOnce Upon a Tower by Eloisa James

I have a long way to go before I beat out Meg Cabot as my most read author. I basically just read her books throughout my adolescent years. So it doesn’t surprise me that she continues to be my most read author.

Maggie Stiefvater is continuing to be one of my must-buy authors whose books I automatically read. The addition of Eloisa James on my list reflects my growing love of historical romance.

You are my courage, as I am your conscience. You are my heart - and I your compassion. We are neither of us whole, alone.
