A GROOM OF ONE’S OWN
Genre: Historical Romance, England, Victorian Period
For a delightful love-and-laughter, madness and mayhem romance, Rodale calls upon the joy, troubles, triumphs and tribulations of wedding planning. With its quick pace and wonderful sense of humor, Rodale’s new entry in the Writing Girl series is a smash.
When her groom calls off the wedding, Sophie Harlow thinks she’s done with matrimony; then she gets a job as the wedding reporter for the London Weekly. She must cover every detail of the “wedding of the century”: the marriage of the double Duke of Hamilton and Brandon to Lady Clarissa, daughter of the Duke of Richmond.
Sophie has met the duke and developed feelings for him that would compromise the wedding. To make matters worse, the duke feels the same way about Sophie, and Clarissa is attracted to a visiting prince. So, how do an intrepid lady reporter, an honorable duke and a lovely young lady avoid scandal and win the loves of their lives? Perhaps by concocting a wild scheme where anything can go wrong and everything can go right. (AVON, Jul., 380 pp., $7.99)
