I'm in the mood for something new so I think I'll be reading the Charles Todd books and/or Don't Kill the Messenger.
The Shy Duchess by Amanda McCabe
"With her golden hair and dazzling emerald eyes, Lady Emily Carroll should have her pick of suitors. Instead, her crippling shyness has earned her the nickname "Ice Princess."
I was looking forward to reading this book and I found it at the book store the other day. I'd read the first four chapters free at barnesandnoble.com and I wanted to finish it. I've mentioned before my weakness for shy heroines and Dukes.
It's a Harlequin Historical and not very long. Basically shy but very beautiful girl must marry Duke after tripping and falling on him and thus being caught in compromising position. She's called the Ice Princess but she warms his heart. It's Happily Ever After with no real drama and everything you want in this style of book. My only complaint is that there were a couple of scenes where the characters seemed to jump positions (eyes open then suddenly closed) but overall it was an enjoyable story.
No Rating since this is the kind of book you already know if you like before you read it.
