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?

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.

On a celebratory front, All About Romance included Wilde in Love in their Top Picks for 2017!

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!
