I'm so crazy excited for Joanna Chambers because her new Regency historical, UNFORGIVABLE, is releasing in just a few hours (or, if it's Tuesday the 15th, it's out). It's a yummy, angsty, tender, surprising, and fabulous read. (And I'm not saying that because she's my critique partner, but full disclosure: she is.)

It's already getting great reviews around blogtown, and is a January recommended read at Dear Author.

Oh, poor sickly, spotty Rose Davenport, married for her money and tucked away in a distant estate. But never fear: Rose grows into a confident, beautiful, and even smart-alecky young woman bent on reclaiming her life. There is so much to love about this book!

le blurb:

A notorious rake is about to make the ultimate faux pas—fall in love with his own wife.

Gil Truman has eyes only for the beautiful Tilly—until he is forced to marry plain, sickly Rose Davenport to reclaim the lands his father foolishly gambled away. After a disastrous wedding night tainted with his bitterness, he deposits Rose at his remote Northumbrian estate, soothing his guilt with the thought that she need never lay eyes on him again.

Five years after the mortifying wedding night that destroyed all her romantic fantasies, Rose is fed up with hearing second- and third-hand reports of Gil’s philandering ways. She is no longer the shy, homely girl he left behind, but a strong, confident woman who knows how to run an estate. And knows what she wants—her husband, back in their marriage bed.

Gil doesn’t recognize the bold, flirtatious woman he meets at a ball, with or without her mask. Yet he is bewitched and besotted, and their night together is the most passionate he has ever known.

But when he confesses his sins to the beautiful stranger, the truth rips open the old wounds of their blighted history. Threatening any hope of a future together.

This sounds like a great new romance! I've never read this author before but, as a new historical romance reader, I am always open to new authors.

There's nothing I love more than a notorious rake. Unless it's a hypochondriac heroine a hunky bankrobber. :) Thanks for the giveaway!
