Release Day Giveaway! Scandalous Desires by Elizabeth Hoyt

I've got a great release day giveaway here on the blog today!

Can a pirate learn that the only true treasure lies in a woman's heart?

Widowed Silence Hollingbrook is impoverished, lovely, and kind—and nine months ago she made a horrible mistake. She went to a river pirate for help in saving her husband and in the process made a bargain that cost her her marriage. That night wounded her so terribly that she hides in the foundling home she helps run with her brother. Except now that same river pirate is back...and he's asking for her help.

"Charming" Mickey O'Connor is the most ruthless river pirate in London. Devastatingly handsome and fearsomely intelligent, he clawed his way up through London's criminal underworld. Mickey has no use for tender emotions like compassion and love, and he sees people as pawns to be manipulated. And yet he's never been able to forget the naive captain's wife who came to him for help and spent one memorable night in his bed...talking.

When his bastard baby girl was dumped in his lap—her mother having died—Mickey couldn't resist the Machiavellian urge to leave the baby on Silence's doorstep. The baby would be hidden from his enemies and he'd also bind Silence to him by her love for his daughter.

I just finished this book just a short while ago and let me tell you that it's very good! Mickey O'Connor will steal your heart!

  24. Hey, I am a HUGE Elizabeth Hoyt fan! Every one of her books goes on my Wish List and is an Auto-Request when it's finally released. However, I would love, love, love to win a copy! Please enter my name in the contest. If I don't win from you, I can't wait--I'll just have to order myself.

    By the way, from one David Gandy fan to another, you should take a look at these images I posted on David's Facebook page. They are screencaps from his Attitude video so they're super hot. He's my current obsession also. That's why you and I are already following each other! LOL
