Cover Love #10 - Abandoned at the Altar

If you have read my blog before, you probably know that I'm a HUGE Laura Lee Guhrke fan, and today she finally dropped the announcement about her upcoming books!

She's launching a new series called Abandoned at the Altar and released both the covers and summaries of the first two books.

WeddingWedding of the Season (to be released December 28th, 2010)

Being jilted. It’s awful for a girl.

Especially if your fiancé was also your childhood sweetheart , your prince charming, and the handsome, rakish duke you’d built all your dreams around. Even more awful if he jilted you two weeks before your wedding and took off for Egypt. It would take a girl a long time to get over that sort of humiliation.

But what if six years later, on the eve of your next wedding, he returns and he decides he wants you back? Too bad, you say? But what if he’s as hot, handsome, and rakishly charming as ever? What if his return stirs up all the old passions you thought you’d conquered? What if you find yourself longing for the past and questioning the future? What if you have to spend a whole month at the same house party with him and your new fiancé?

Well, for Lady Beatrix Danbury, that sort of situation is more than awful. It’s impossible. It’s intolerable. It’s a nightmare. But it might also turn out to be her dream come true.

Scandal of the Season (to be released January 25th, 2010)

ScandalBeing jilted. It’s awful for a guy.

Especially if you’re a duke, and your fiancée left you for that other duke, the one who came back from Egypt just before your wedding. Humiliating, right?

But what if you managed to recover, got engaged to another girl, and then got jilted again, this time because of a notorious woman, a lot of champagne, and a moment of utter stupidity? Well, that’s beyond humiliating. That’s a scandal.

Ah, but what if you manage to put the scandal behind you and begin searching for a new bride, only to have the notorious woman who ruined everything reenter your life? What if she’s as enticing as before? What if just being near her threatens to ruin your marriage prospects and your reputation all over again? For Aidan Carr, Duke of Trathen, the unluckiest man in England when it comes to matrimony, another scandal is the worst thing he can imagine. It might also be the best thing that ever happened to him.

I'm very excited about this series. At first I wasn't a bit sad that the next book from her wasn't a new Girl-Bachelor book but Laura Lee Guhrke is the kind of author I can trust with my heart, so I'm sure this series will be awesome (also, according to Laura's site, the first book is loosely connected to the Girl-Bachelors, as we get to see the couple from An Then He Kissed Her (one of the most awesome books ever!) so that's, like, double the excitement for me!).

Really, if you haven't you need to check out her books, she writes fun but with substance and is amazing with tension between the characters, you can feel their chemistry jumping up the page.
