Waiting on Wednesday: Cold-Hearted Rake by Lisa Kleypas

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

Lisa Kleypas could write a shopping list and I'd be excited to read it. Fortunately for me, my Waiting on Wednesday pick is Ms. Kleypas's upcoming historical romance, Cold-Hearted Rake (first in an as-yet unnamed quartet). I LOVE Ms. Kleypas's historicals (Devil in Winter is one of my all-time favorite books) and I'm so, so excited she has returned to the genre.

Book Description (from Amazon.com):

A twist of fate...
Devon Ravenel, London's most wickedly charming rake, has just inherited an earldom. But his powerful new rank in society comes with unwanted responsibilities...and more than a few surprises. His estate is saddled with debt, and the late earl's three innocent sisters are still occupying the house...along with Kathleen, Lady Trenear, a beautiful young widow whose sharp wit and determination are a match for Devon's own.

A clash of wills...
Kathleen knows better than to trust a ruthless scoundrel like Devon. But the fiery attraction between them is impossible to deny—and from the first moment Devon holds her in his arms, he vows to do whatever it takes to possess her. As Kathleen finds herself yielding to his skillfully erotic seduction, only one question remains:

Can she keep from surrendering her heart to the most dangerous man she's ever known?
