If you listen to this week’s episode of our podcast, you’ll know that we’ve announced something very special for all you historical romance fans out there: Judith McNaught, grande dame of romance, has released FOURTEEN of her most beloved novels in e-format for the very first time!
You can buy most of these new titles for a mere $7.99, but that’s not enough for us. We wanted to celebrate this bounty of bosoms, this generosity of gentlemen, and so we chose one of our favorite McNaught titles, WHITNEY, MY LOVE, and marked it down to just $2.99 for a limited time!
That’s because we want to make it as easy as possible for you to join us in our Whitney, My Love read along! Every Wednesday, right up until we break for the holiday, look for us under the hashtag #WhitneyWednesdays on the XOXO Twitter feed: we’ll be talking about our reactions to the book, what we’re loving, what we might remember a leetle differently from the first time we read this classic. Join in and tell us what you think! Plus, we’re wrapping the whole thing up with a discussion on the XOXO After Darkcast in December, where we’ll have some of our most loyal read-along-ers calling in to join us…could it be you?
Here’s our schedule–come talk to us, and enjoy all these great Judith McNaught titles!
(Note: Apologies, Darkcast listeners! Abby mistakenly gave the wrong price for WHITNEY. It is $2.99, not $1.99.)
Whitney, My LoveJudith McNaught
Saucy spitfire Whitney Stone returns from her triumphant time in Paris society to England, where she plans on marrying her childhood sweetheart, only to discover she has been bargained away by her bankrupt father to the arrogant and alluring Clayton Westmoreland, the Duke of Claymore. Outraged, she defies her new lord. But even as his smoldering passion seduces her into a gathering storm of desire, Whitney cannot—will not—relinquish her dream of perfect love. This is old-school romance at its finest, and now readers can snap it up for the first time as an e-book!
