Is it finally August 28th? About darn time!

Yes, Love Letters from a Duke arrives today in stores. Yes, today. So a huge welcome to my newest book, and an even bigger welcome to everyone dropping by to check up on it, read the excerpt, or just curious about the new site. If you have the time, check out my expanded Bookshelf, the new Events page, and of course this blog. If you are a fan of Julia Quinn or Candice Hern, you might like a recent blog I wrote about them. It’s a bit of a tell-all, very gossipy, and was all-together too much fun to write. Or maybe that was Love Letters from a Duke. (BTW, the Footnotes for the book will be posting sometime this afternoon, so check back if you want the inside scoop about Felicity’s story.)

But truly, where are my manners? My grandmother (bless her soul) would probably be chastizing me for not having a little something for all my guests. Unfortunately, I don’t think you can upload cake and champagne. So you will have to content yourself with cyber versions. What am I serving, you ask? Well, my absolutely most favorite cake, of course:


1 pkg. devil’s food cake mix
4 oz. pkg. chocolate pudding mix
4 eggs
1/2 c. oil
3/4 c. water
1 c. sour cream
5 (1 1/4 oz.) Frango mint bars, chopped fine

In large mixing bowl beat all except candy until smooth. Fold in mint pieces. Bake in greased and floured tube pan at 350 degrees for 55 minutes. When cool sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Please eat as much of the cake as you like, because I have it on good authority it goes perfectly with a romance novel. Hint. Hint. And I assure you, cyber cake never goes to your hips. Nor will Felicity and Thatcher’s story. Enjoy!

Psst…I’ve posted a new contest! Just for this week! Details are right there in the pink sidebar.

    *Does the happy dance* I have my copy, I have my copy *sang, while doing said happy dance*.

    Ohh, that cake sounds good, but I’m not big on either chocolate or mint. However, I will refer this recipe to my husband who will faint in a manly sort of way. I bet it’ll get made sometime soon hehe.

    Congratulations on the newest release! This is so exciting!!

    I’m so excited about this book – it’s on it’s way to me now, from Amazon. I’m hoping it will be here by this weekend. :>)

    HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to you, Elizabeth! Hope you’re enjoying bits and bites of that delicious mint-choc cake.

    I’m going to head into Redmond later this week. My fav bookseller has the book on hold. Yay!

    So, those of you who have read the book, who do you think Tally’s man is? I think it’s Larken.

    But I still have so many questions! Like: Where is Felicity’s dad? Is he going to come back? Is the Bachelor Chronicles limited to Pippin, Tally, Felicity, and Miranda, or will there be more?

    Now, I think I’ve made my feelings clear. I LOVE the wishing series. But this one was great! Now I only feel the teensiest teensy bit sad that this year was a bachelor year and not a wishing year. *dramatic sigh*

    Elizbo, I really loved Felicity’s personality. Plus, I like the fact that you really aren’t afraid to write scandalous stuff, and your characters don’t particularly care about society, but pretty much do what they want.

    Thank you one and all for all your kind words! Ya’ll make me blush!!!

    Janelle, I’m not saying that Larken isn’t the man for Tally…and that’s all I’m saying.

    And yes, I plan on writing Pippin and Tally’s story, as well as Lord Langley’s story and the three Marchioness of Standon widows stories.

    And Janelle, the next TWO books are wishing stories. Does that help??

    I think I need to learn Nanny Jamilla’s look.

    BTW, I am in the middle of “Love Letters to a Duke” and enjoying the heck out of it. Since I knew I’d be getting it soon, I hauled out “This Rake of Mine” for a re-read. It was nice to flow from one book to Love Letters.

    Nice going, Ms. Boyle.
