Recommendation of the Week: 10/03/2010 - 10/10/2010

'The Abduction Of Julia' by Karen Hawkins
"What can a respectable Regency miss do when kidnapped by a nobleman intent on marriage? Why, marry him, of course.
Julia Frant has secretly loved Alec MacLean, the wild Viscount Hunterston from afar. So when he accidentally snatches her instead of her lovely, scheming cousin for an elopement to Gretna Green, Julia leaps at the chance to make her passionate dreams come true.
Alec's in no position to quibble: if he doesn't marry by midnight and live scandal-free for a year, he loses his inheritance. At least marriage with do-gooder Julia will guarantee his fortune. But as his plain brown wren transforms herself into an elegant swan, Alec suddenly can't stay away from his last-minute wife---and when he kisses her, the inheritance is the last thing on his mind. Unfortunately, scandal can occur from the best of intentions...and Julia is never short of good intentions!"Source

My Thoughts: This read was recommended to me by a very special friend and follower, Rhonda Jones. After reading the blurb, I can see why she offered this title up to me when I asked for some suggestions. Rhonda told me, "I liked this for the reasons of opposites attract.". Now I must scour every nook and cranny of my local library to find this read! Thanks for the Rec, Rhonda! And I think you should all check this book out as well!

  1. I have every one of her books as I do Julia Quinn. I know if she is the author, it will be good. Now that you have read the Abduction of Julia, you should read A Belated Bride, which tells Lucien's story and The Seduction of Sara which tells Nick's story. The Seduction of Sara is continued with An Affair to Remember (one of my two favorites of both series)which tells the story of Sara's brother falling for her best friend who both appeared in Seduction of Sara. This story begins the next series that finds each of the brothers in posession of an heirloom ring from their mother that leads them to their true love/wife which neither thinks they want. Anthony, Sara's brother is the first to possess the ring in Affair to Remember. The final book of that series is 'The Lady in Red' which is my other favorite of the two series. All are wonderful books.
