Waiting on Wednesday: The Other Countess by Eve Edwards

The Other Countess by Eve Edwards (Published by Penguin UK, July 1, 2010)

It's 1582 and eighteen-year-old Will Lacey's family is in trouble. After years of wasteful spending, his late father has run Lacey Hall to near ruin. Tasked with marrying his family back into fortune, the new Earl of Dorset is all set for a season at court to woo not just the Queen but potential brides with his jousting skills. But when Ellie – a strong-willed girl with nothing to her name but a worthless Spanish title – catches Will's eye, he faces a bigger battle than he could ever have anticipated.

I love the Tudor era and I love young adult historical fiction with a romance in it so this book sounds really good. The author is a new UK debut author. And the cover is lovely. So I really can't wait to read this book!

Note: This book will be published in the UK. If you are interested in reading it and live outside the UK, you can pre-order it with free worldwide shipping from The Book Depository: (I am not affiliated with them in any way other than as a very happy customer!)

Oh this looks fantastic. If it is set during the Tudor period even better. I hope it will be released in the U.S. as well but if not I may have to look it up on Book Depository. Nice pick!
