Waiting on Wednesday: Duke of Desire by Elizabeth Hoyt

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

Elizabeth Hoyt's Maiden Lane series is one of my absolute favorite series. Her characters are always unique and their stories captivating. I was re-reading some of my favorite bits of Duke of Sin last night (because I can't resist Val) and falling into Ms. Hoyt's writing once again made me incredibly eager for the next Maiden Lane book, Duke of Desire.

Book Description (from Amazon):

Refined, kind, and intelligent, Lady Iris Jordan finds herself the unlikely target of a diabolical kidnapping. Her captors are the notoriously evil Lords of Chaos. When one of the masked - and nude! - Lords spirits her away to his carriage, she shoots him...only to find she may have been a trifle hasty.

Cynical, scarred, and brooding, Raphael de Chartres, the Duke of Dyemore, has made it his personal mission to infiltrate the Lords of Chaos and destroy them. Rescuing Lady Jordan was never in his plans. But now with the Lords out to kill them both, he has but one choice: marry the lady in order to keep her safe.

Much to Raphael's irritation, Iris insists on being the sort of duchess who involves herself in his life-and bed. Soon he's drawn both to her quick wit and her fiery passion. But when Iris discovers that Raphael's past may be even more dangerous than the present, she falters. Is their love strong enough to withstand not only the Lords of Chaos but also Raphael's own demons?

OMG YAAAAASSSS, I CAN'T WAIT TO READ THIS BOOK! I've really enjoy all eleven of the previous books (which is kind of neat - usually there is at least one or two in a long series that I just don't like), and I can't remember being this excited about any of them. Well, except for maybe book six, which ended up being my favorite - and still is. :D Anyway, I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it!

Have a fabulous week. =)
