Rant or Rave Monday 3.8.10

Isalys's Rave

I am a follower of The Season, a website/blog dedicated to all Romance books (historical, paranormal, contemporary, etc.) Last week, they announced that they were looking for a few more reviewers to add to the family.

With my addiction of historical & paranormal romances in mind, I 'applied' via email.

I'm VERY EXCITED to announce that I was one of the chosen reviewers along with three other ladies! I'm am so stoked to become a part of their team and can't wait to start sharing my love of romances with other junkies like me :)

The first book that I will be reviewing for them is:

A secret list of the desires of Lady Olivia Rathbourne:
1) Disregard convention

2) Follow my heart
3) Bed the Earl of Wyldewood

A decade ago, Olivia had expected to marry the Earl of Wyldewood, only to have happiness stolen from her before his ring could be placed upon her finger. Now he stands before her, as proud and arrogant and handsome as ever, vowing to rescue her.

Well, he's got some nerve urning up after all these years. Where was he when she needed him?
As for the earl, scandal has never touched him nor has impropriety ever besmirched his name. But his penchant for doing the expected does have his family calling him, well, dull. Isn't it time to flaunt society's conventions and do what he's always wanted?

And first on his list:
Olivia in his bed—with or without a wedding.
