WAITING ON WEDNESDAY (56): "Any Duchess Will Do" by Tessa Dare

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

Any Duchess Will Do (Spindle Cove, #4)
by Tessa Dare

Expected Publication: May 28, 2013
Historical Romance

What’s a duke to do, when the girl who’s perfectly wrong becomes the woman he can’t live without?

Griffin York, the Duke of Halford, has no desire to wed this season—or any season—but his diabolical mother abducts him to “Spinster Cove” and insists he select a bride from the ladies in residence. Griff decides to teach her a lesson that will end the marriage debate forever. He chooses the serving girl.

Overworked and struggling, Pauline Simms doesn’t dream about dukes. All she wants is to hang up her barmaid apron and open a bookshop. That dream becomes a possibility when an arrogant, sinfully attractive duke offers her a small fortune for a week’s employment. Her duties are simple: submit to his mother’s “duchess training”… and fail miserably.

But in London, Pauline isn’t a miserable failure. She’s a brave, quick-witted, beguiling failure—a woman who ignites Griff’s desire and soothes the darkness in his soul. Keeping Pauline by his side won’t be easy. Even if Society could accept a serving girl duchess—can a roguish duke convince a serving girl to trust him with her heart? 

WHY I'M WAITING: I freaking love this series!  Tessa Dare is an amazingly gifted author who combines sly humor and uber-romantic love stories with ease.  The two protagonists are ones that I don't remember much about, but I love the idea of a duke and a barmaid falling love.  Plus Pauline's ultimate dream is to open a bookshop!
