    “Eloisa James is extraordinary.”—Lisa Kleypas 
    “Nothing gets me to the bookstore faster than a new novel by Eloisa James.”—Julia Quinn 
    New York Times bestselling author Eloisa James gives the classic Hans Christian Andersen story of “The Ugly Duckling” a wonderful, witty, and delightfully passionate twist. The Ugly Duchess is another fairytale inspired romance from the unparalleled storyteller whose writing, author Teresa Medieros raves, “is truly scrumptious.” A sexy and fun historical romance, James’s winning tale of a glorious reawakening does not feature ducks and swans—rather it’s a charming story of a young woman unaware of her own beauty, suddenly duty-bound to wed the dashing gentleman who has always been her platonic best friend…until now.

    An aristocratic playboy finds himself the houseguest of a brash, bold, confounding, yet inexplicably beguiling widow in this incredibly witty romance from Raine Cantrell.
    For Catherine, widowhood does not mean mourning. It means freedom. Finally experiencing the world outside of her former husband’s strict and watchful eye, Catherine finds new joy in the simplicity of life in the home she shares with her closest friends, Mary and Sarah.
    With Mary close to having a child of her own and Sarah acting as Mary’s midwife, Catherine is facing an empty house for the first time ever. To make the best of it, she’s agreed to host a good friend’s brother for a much-needed break from his obsessive working.
    What should be a quiet vacation for Gregory Michael Mayfield III in the tranquility of the countryside, however, quickly turns to disaster. Gregory, used to finery, order, and getting exactly what he wants, arrives earlier than expected, to the surprise of his seemingly scatterbrained but stunning host.
    Peace and privacy are all Gregory is after, but when he finds himself drawn to Catherine’s own stubbornness and the intelligent nature he at first took for granted, both may fall to the wayside. Will the calamity send Gregory packing or draw him ever closer to the untamable Catherine?

What more could a scandal writer want than a secret look into the life of this devilishly handsome rake? 
    Daniel has secrets, and if The Hawk's Eye gets wind of them, a man's life could be at stake. And what better way to distract a gossip than by feeding her the scandal she desperately craves?
