Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is brought to you by Breaking The Spine. This meme spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.

The Tutor
By Hope Tarr
Publication Date: July 2010

From eharlequin:

Lady Bea Lindsey is desperate. She's newly engaged to a very nice but dull gentleman and is fully aware that if she wants any joy in her marriage bed, she'll have to call the shots. But first she needs to be taught. And who better to instruct her than irresistibly sexy rogue Ralph Sylvester?

Ralph is surprised by Bea's request, but he can't turn down the woman he's lusted after for the past nine months. He agrees on one condition. For the next seven days and nights, Bea must relinquish total control to him. No pleasure will be off-limits, no act of lovemaking forbidden, no desire too shocking.

It's every man's fantasy. Until the student surpasses the teacher…

Captive Queen
By Alison Weir
Publication Date: July 13

From BOMC2:

In 1152, a beautiful woman of 30 left her crown, her two daughters and her shattered marriage to King Louis of France for the man she loved. The woman was Eleanor of Aquitaine, and the man she fled to, Henry Plantagenet, soon took the crown as King Henry II. Theirs was a union founded on lust, and it led to the creation of one of the greatest empires in Christendom…and to one of the most notoriously vicious marriages in history.

In Captive Queen, acclaimed author Alison Weir (Mistress of the Monarchy, The Lady in the Tower) gives us a brilliantly wrought historical novel centered on Eleanor’s explosive marriage to Henry, from its fiery beginnings to its downward spiral as it’s marred by power struggles, betrayals, infidelities, bitter rivalries and a devil’s brood of Plantagenets—including Richard the Lionheart and the future King John. A gifted historian and master storyteller, Weir brings their story to vivid life, immersing us in sights, sounds and passions of the era as no one else can. The result is absolutely gripping: an epic tale about the making of nations, and of a formidable woman who—by following her heart—forever changed the world.
