TEN THINGS I LOVE ABOUT YOU
Wit, whimsy, poignancy and passion, Quinn’s trademarks, are all here in spades. Her ability to sweep readers into a nonstop love story is what makes her appeal strong. It’s another delightfully uplifting romance from a master.
Annabel Winslow is spending the London season with her grandparents in hopes of landing a wealthy husband. Though she’d rather marry for love, Annabel must save her family from penury. Her beauty and lush figure attract the Earl of Newbury. The portly nobleman wants an heir other than his nephew, Sebastian Grey. Despite the chance that he will be penniless, Annabel is far more attracted to handsome, young Sebastian than to the much older earl. But she must put her family first, so Annabel makes one of her famous lists to help her make a choice. The courtships ensue, as does mayhem no list could predict. Should a girl ruin herself for love or settle for security, and what revelations can help her decide? (AVON, Jun., 380 pp., $7.99)
