Title: If Wishes Were Earls
Genre: Historical Romance
Author: Elizabeth Boyle
Harriet Hathaway has only ever wanted one man: the Earl of Roxley. After a passionate interlude at a house party, Harriet is convinced Roxley will do the right thing and propose. But when she returns to London, she finds the roguish earl on the verge of proposing to another.
Yet Harriet refuses to believe that her hopes of a happily ever after are completely lost—for she can see the desire still flickering in the earl's eyes when he looks at her from across the dance floor. And when they are alone...there is one wish neither can deny.
The Earl of Roxley is in a dangerous fix—and to keep Harriet safe, he must hold her at arm's length. He won't entangle her in the murderous mystery that is threatening to destroy his family and his future. But keeping Harriet Hathaway out of his troubles proves as impossible as it was to keep the determined beauty from stealing his heart.
According to her family, Elizabeth Boyle has always been a storyteller. That is if you count the far-fetched tales she used to make up about her imaginary cow, John Clapper, or the fictitious accounts she'd conjure as to who exactly broke the cookie jar. So it was no surprise to them when Elizabeth's first novel, Brazen Angel arrived on the scene with a great splash, snagging the Dell Diamond Debut Award and went on to win the Romance Writers of America RITA for Best First Book.
Since then, Elizabeth has penned twenty more adventurous and romantic novels, which her fans call "fast-paced" and "tremendously fun," with the most common complaint being that her books have kept them up too late at night reading. Her upcoming release, If Wishes Were Earls, is the third book in her latest series, Rhymes with Love.
In addition to writing, Elizabeth loves gardening, knitting, reading, traveling, and trying to find low-fat recipes that taste like something her grandmothers would have made. She lives in Seattle with her household of heroes-in-training, and considers her hectic life the best slice of heaven one could ever wish for.
