In My Mailbox (July 19)

In my mailbox was created by Kristi of The Story Siren, who was inspired by Pop Culture Junkie. Here are the books I got this week...

I've had a rather slow week book-wise. I've been working, and also trying to catch up on the 20+ books I seem to have accumulated over the past couple of weeks. I did get one books this week, but it's historical fiction rather than YA.

The Temptation of the Night Jasmine (Book 5 in the Pink Carnation series)
By Lauren Willig
After twelve years in India, Robert, duke of Dovedale, returns to his estate in England to avenge the murder of his mentor during the 1803 Battle of Assaye. Robert plans to infiltrate the infamous, secretive Hellfire Club to uncover the murderer's identity— but he has no idea that an even more difficult challenge awaits him—one Lady Charlotte Lansdowne.

Having cherished a romanticized view of Robert since childhood, Charlotte is thrilled by his return. To Charlotte, Robert is all the knights of the Round Table rolled into one. That's not exactly the case, but she can't help but search for the man she loves inside this less-than-pristine package. And while Robert works to dissuade Charlotte from her delusions, he can't help but be drawn to her innocence and inner beauty.

When Charlotte is approached by Lady Henrietta Selwick to join her in a bit of espionage—investigating a plot to kidnap the king—Robert soon realizes that Charlotte is not only the perfect partner in crime; she's the perfect partner, period. Caught in a dangerous game with deadly flower-named spies and secret members of the Hellfire Club, Robert and Charlotte must work together to reveal the villain...and confront their true passion for each other.


I also got some goodies from Jessica Verday! You can get them too, at her website here: http://www.jessicaverday.com
Now, all I need to do is wait for my vacation (begins next week), and I'll have a whole week to lounge around, pretend summer break isn't almost over, and read through my stacks of books!

I did enjoy The Pink Carnation (it was my favorite of the series). I only own the first three in the series (they're all pretty expensive, even for hardcover books). Hope you enjoy it!

The Hollow goodies are pretty cool. I just got mine this past week. Your book sounds really intriguing! Romance and suspense is so much fun. Love the title too.
