Publisher: Avon, Harper Collins

Avon’s got a debut author named Maya Rodale that I’m curious to try out. It’s called A Groom of One’s Own and the cover is pretty cute but it’s the blurb that totally has me wanting to read the book.

Check it out:

Iss Harlow’s marriage in high life
London, 1823

A handsome duke. His beautiful soon-to-be duchess. A whirlwind courtship. It is this author’s privilege to report on the event all of London is talking about: the upcoming wedding of the Duke of Hamilton and Brandon to the only daughter of the Duke of Richmond. Every detail of the “Wedding of the Year” will be reported in these pages as a London Weekly exclusive.
But I, Miss Sophie Harlow, must confess to a secret infatuation with this “double duke” that can only lead to trouble. It is impossible that this notoriously upstanding gentleman would ever jilt his bride for a scandalous female newspaper writer. And yet . . . the arrival of a foreign prince, the discovery of a shocking secret, and one passionate kiss could change everything. Will this perfect duke risk the scandal of the year to marry the woman his heart desires?


Yeah, I totally think I’ll be reading this book soon.

Has anyone read this book yet? If so, what are your thoughts? If you haven’t read it, do you think you will? I’m curious so I’ll definitely be looking out for this one.

This book is already out but I wanted to know if anyone’s read it yet…thoughts?

This book is available from Avon. You can buy it here or here in e-format.

  1. I haven’t read this one yet, but I absolutely loved Maya’s first two books (The Heir and the Spare and The Rake and the Rival). I thought they were a wonderful mix of funny and emotional. She’s managed to make my auto-buy now!

    I hope you enjoy it!
