Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house during the previous week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists! Mailbox Monday, which was started by Marcia at The Printed Page, is on blog tour—and Lady Q at Let Them Read Books is hosting during the month of December.
First up is The Mistress' House by Leigh Michaels, which I received from Sourcebooks for review.
Except this elegant townhouse has a way of making its residents fall in love instead. Anne -- the perfect mistress for the rakish Earl of Hawthorne; Felicity -- the perfect challenge for Richard, Lord Colford; and Georgiana -- the perfect nightmare for Major Julian Hampton...
the residents of Number Five, Upper Seymour Street. (Publication Date: February 2011)
Next up is Only Mr. Darcy Will Do by Kara Louise, which I received from Sourcebooks for review.
(Publication Date: March 2011; originally published as Something Like Regret)
And lastly, Letters from Home by Kristina McMorris which I received from the author for a blog tour through Pump Up Your Book Promotions.
Chicago, 1944. Liz Stephens has little interest in attending a USO club dance with her friends Betty and Julia. She doesn't need a flirtation with a lonely serviceman when she's set to marry her childhood sweetheart. Yet something happens the moment Liz glimpses Morgan McClain. They share only a brief conversation - cut short by the soldier's evident interest in Betty - but Liz can't forget him. Thus, when Betty asks her to ghostwrite a letter to Morgan, stationed overseas, Liz reluctantly agrees.
Thousands of miles away, Morgan struggles to adjust to the brutality of war. His letters from "Betty" are a comfort, their soul-baring correspondence a revelation to them both. While Liz is torn by her feelings for a man who doesn't know her true identity, Betty and Julia each become immersed in their own romantic entanglements. And as the war draws to a close, all three will face heart-wrenching choices, painful losses, and the bittersweet joy of new beginnings.
So there is my Mailbox Monday. What goodies arrived in your mailbox last week?
