Excerpt from "When You Wish Upon A Duke" by Isabella Bradford

OK, first of all, I LOVE the purples used in this cover; lovely and eye-catching. But. speaking of eyes, where are they? Where's her head? It's mostly chopped of by the title header. Why? While the colors are gorgeous, overall the cover doesn't say romance to me, it says "historical about dress making". Very odd design choice in my not at all humble opinion. But, the purples, they are lovely! They call my name. :D

Book Blurb:

In a sparkling new series filled with irresistible charm and sizzling romance, award-winning author Isabella Bradford introduces us to the eldest of three Wylder sisters—unruly country girls whose passion for life leaves their London suitors breathless.

Raised in the Dorset countryside, Lady Charlotte Wylder doesn’t care one bit about well-bred decorum. The dark-haired, blue-eyed beauty would rather ride a horse than attend a stuffy ball. So when Charlotte learns that she is to leave immediately for London to wed the Duke of Marchbourne, a perfect model of aristocratic propriety, she is less than enchanted with her arranged marriage.

But to her delight, their first encounters are brazenly flirtatious, and their wedding night burns with passion. March’s broad shoulders and dark countenance make Charlotte want to rip every button off his waistcoast. She may even be falling in love with her new husband. Yet whenever their desire boils over, March reluctantly pushes Charlotte away. Will past secrets and present misunderstandings mire their marriage in scandal, or serve to strengthen a bond that is destined to last a lifetime?
