WAITING ON WEDNESDAY (25): "The Ugly Duchess" by Eloisa James

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine to highlight upcoming releases we're anxiously awaiting. 

(Fairy Tales #4)
by Eloisa James

Historical Romance -- Avon
Expected Date: August 28, 2012

How can she dare to imagine he loves her…when all London calls her "The Ugly Duchess"?

Theodora Saxby is the last woman anyone expects the gorgeous James Ryburn, heir to the Duchy of Ashbrook, to marry. But after a romantic proposal before the prince himself, even practical Theo finds herself convinced of her soon-to-be duke's passion.

Still, the tabloids give the marriage six months.

Theo would have given it a lifetime…until she discovers that James desired not her heart, and certainly not her countenance, but her dowry. Society was shocked by their wedding; it's scandalized by their separation.

Now James faces the battle of his lifetime, convincing Theo that he loved the duckling who blossomed into the swan.  And Theo will quickly find that for a man with the soul of a pirate, All's Fair in Love—or War.

NOTE: Even though it is the fourth in the series, these books are not continous.  Each fairy tale is its own stand-alone story.  So feel free to jump in whenever!  The earlier books provide retellings of Cinderalla, Beauty & the Beast, and The Princess & the Pea.
