Waiting on Wednesday

Jill @ Breaking the Spine hosts this weekly meme which takes a look at those books we bloggers and readers are looking forward to reading in the near future.  Hear are a couple I discovered, one because I received it as a review copy, and another, looking through the summer and fall catalogue. 

The Other Countess

Ellie - Lady Eleanor Rodriguez of San Jaime - is in possession of a goldseeking father, a worthless title, and a feisty spirit that captivates the elite of the Queen's court, including none other than the handsome new Earl of Dorset...

William Lacey has inherited his father's title and his financial ruin.  Now the Earl must seek a wealthy heiress and restore his family's fortune.  But Will's head has been turned by the gorgeous Ellie, yet their union can never be.  Will is destined to marry a worthy Lady, so the only question is - which one?

by Lesley Pearse
Release Date: August 24, 2010

When a beautiful blond girl is found half-drowned on a beach, she has no memory of who she is or what horrors have left her there.  But an article about her in a Brighton newspaper rings alarm bells for beautician, Dale, who shows the police photographs of Lotte Wainright.  The girls met working on a cruise ship and their friendship blossomed as they sailed the seas of South America, until Lotte fell under the sinister spell of an older American couple.  To her regret, Dale hasn't seen Lotte since leaving the ship months earlier...but the girl on the beach, although badly bruised, is indeed her much missed friend.

Their reunion only marks the beginning of a dangerous tidal wave of secrets, lies, and nightmares.  Where has Lotte been?  Who is the man who seems to want to kill her?  And what has become of the baby she's recently given birth to?

Dale and Lotte must dig deep and find the strength to hold on against the odds if they are to rebuild their friendship and survive Lotte's stolen - and deadly - past.
