Amanda Weaver and Carina Press reveal the new cover for A Duchess in Name, the first novel in The Grantham Girls series, available January 18, 2016.
I’ve followed Amanda Weaver’s writing for several years, and she’s always entranced me with her words and characterizations. When I heard she was writing The Grantham Girls, a historical romance series, I immediately went into flail mode. Not only was an amazing author writing a series in my favorite genre, but I knew that historical romance was a passion of hers, too. I can only imagine the effort and time put into this series to make it historical accurate while making all her readers swoon like crazy.
Check out the summary and cover reveal for the first book, A Duchess in Name, below!
Victoria Carson never expected love. An American heiress and graduate of Lady Grantham’s finishing school, she’s been groomed since birth to marry an English title—the grander the better. So when the man chosen for her, the forbidding Earl of Dunnley, seems to hate her on sight, she understands that it can’t matter. Love can have no place in this arrangement.
Andrew Hargrave has little use for his title and even less for his cold, disinterested parents. Determined to make his own way, he’s devoted to his life in Italy working as an archaeologist. Until the collapse of his family’s fortune drags him back to England to a marriage he never wanted and a woman he doesn’t care to know.
Wild attraction is an unwanted complication for them both, though it forms the most fragile of bonds. Their marriage of convenience isn’t so intolerable after all—but it may not be enough when the deception that bound them is finally revealed.
I can’t properly express how excited I am for this book. It sounds like there’s going to be a delicious mix of romance and drama, and I can’t wait to meet Victoria and Andrew!
