Tarquin, the powerful Duke of Sconce, knows perfectly well that the decorous and fashionably slender Georgiana Lytton will make him a proper duchess. So why can’t he stop thinking about her twin sister, the curvy, headstrong, and altogether unconventional Olivia? Not only is Olivia…

mybravejourney asked: Is there a certain order in which to your series I just read three week with lady x (AMAZING by the way) and went to look at more on your website all your series are tied together And I think I read the very last first....

Hi there!

Three Weeks with Lady X is really a stand-alone book, though it has ties to the Desperate Duchesses series.  So if you’d like to read more about the Duke of Villiers, and meet Tobias/Thorn when he was a scrappy kid, try the DD series.  It goes in this order:  Desperate Duchesses, Affair Before Christmas, Duchess by Night, When the Duke Returns, This Duchess of Mine, a Duke of Her Own.  I hope you love all of them!  ~ Eloisa

Three Weeks with Lady X – Eloisa James

Sorry I’ve been gone for so long! I got some news, I got engaged a couple of months ago and when I’m not busy at school I got busy planning a wedding. Yay!

But I’ve been reading in my spare time I got a bunch of books from stores that sadly closed down….

“The orange wine will want our care soon. But in the meantime, for elegance and ease and luxury, the Hattons and Milles’ dine here to-day, and I shall eat ice and drink French wine, and be above vulgar economy.” — Jane Austen, in a letter to her sister Cassandra.
