Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.
This is my second week participating because I'm just so excited about the concept for this book. First though I must ask: who is a fan of "The Brady Bunch"? Anyone? Well, I love it (along with many other classic TV shows) and this book takes the names and, it seems, basic personalities from that show to create a historical romance series. I'm very excited that they are starting with Marcia because she was always my favorite. How cool does that premise sound? Here's the cover, summary, and relevant links.
In the House of Brady, three very lovely girls have hair of gold—and hearts to match—but finding a match among the gentlemen of London is one comedy of errors that could bring down the house…
MARCIA GETS SCHOOLED…Of the three Brady sisters, Lady Marcia has always seemed the girl most likely to lead a perfectly charmed life. But after a handsome cad breaks her heart, she swears off love and devotes her life to teaching girls at a private school. In spite of her family’s wish for a London debut, Marcia is happy where she is—until terrible news sends her back to the Brady clan…and into the arms of an unexpected suitor.
ON THE SUBJECT OF LOVEA dark and dashing earl who knows Marcia’s past, Duncan Lattimore is surprised by what a fascinating and independent woman she’s become. Marcia, too, is surprised—by the fiery attraction she feels for Duncan. But why—why—must he be the brother of the scoundrel who broke her heart? Why must Marcia’s rival at school forbid her from seeing him? How can this lady possibly resist this fellow—when they know that it’s much more than a hunch…?
Due August 28, 2012
(and I was lucky enough to get an e-ARC on Netgalley so expect a review close to that date)
What do you think? What are you waiting on this Wednesday?
