Blog Tour: The Stranger I Wed

I don't read historical romance too often, but when I do, it's almost always Harper St. George's novels. She never disappoints and always captures the time period so well and includes a feisty protagonists. 

I'm part of Berkley's blog tour today to feature the start to her new series, The Doves of New York. Book one in the series, The Stranger I Wed, came out yesterday and I can't wait to be immersed in this work of glitz and glam. The Stranger I Wed is being described as New York Gilded Age meets London High Society. Sounds like a winning combo to me!

The Stranger I Wed by Harper St. George

Pub. Date: April 23, 2024 

Goodreads says, "New to wealth and to London high society, American heiress Cora Dove discovers that with the right man, marriage might not be such an inconvenience after all. . .

Cora Dove and her sisters’ questionable legitimacy has been the lifelong subject of New York’s gossipmongers and a continual stain on their father’s reputation. So when the girls each receive a generous, guilt-induced dowry from their dying grandmother, the sly Mr. Hathaway vows to release their funds only if Cora and her sisters can procure suitable husbands—far from New York. For Cora, England is a fresh start. She has no delusions of love, but a husband who will respect her independence? That’s an earl worth fighting for.

Enter: Leopold Brendon, Earl of Devonworth, a no-nonsense member of Parliament whose plan to pass a Public Health bill that would provide clean water to the working class requires the backing of a wealthy wife. He just never expected to crave Cora’s touch or yearn to hear her thoughts on his campaign—or to discover that his seemingly perfect bride protects so many secrets...

But secrets have a way of bubbling to the surface, and Devonworth has a few of his own. With their pasts laid bare and Cora’s budding passion for women’s rights taking a dangerous turn, they’ll learn the true cost of losing their heart to a stranger—and that love is worth any price."
