Mailbox Monday

Today I thought I would begin with Mailbox Monday. For those of you not familiar with it...you blog about the books that you received through the mail this past week. Library books don't count though. This feature is hosted by The Printed Page. I think this is a wonderful idea since I am a member of Paperbackswap and receive many books this way. Many weeks can go by though with nary a book, so I don't think this will be an EVERY Monday kind of a thing. Rejoice though for this past week my mailbox came bearing gifts.

Let Sleeping Rogues Lie by Sabrina Jeffries. Book Description:
When Madeline Prescott took a teaching position at Mrs. Harris's School for Young Ladie, it was to help restore her father's reputation. Instead, she's in danger of ruining her own. The devilishly handsome Anthony Dalton, Viscount Norcourt, has agreed to provide "rake lessons" to Mrs. Harris's pupils so they can learn how to avoid unscrupulous gentlemen, and Madeline is to oversee his classes. She has always believed that attraction is a scientific matter, easily classified and controlled--until she's swept into the passionate desire that fiercely burns between her and Anthony. Nothing could be more illogical than risking everything for a dalliance with a rake--even one who's trying to behave himself. Yet nothing could be more tempting....

Pickpocket Countess by Bronwyn Scott. Book Description:
TO BED A THIEF!

It's Brandon Wycroft's duty as the Earl of Stockport to catch the "Cat." a notorious thief who is stealing from rich local homes to feed the poor. Discovering that the Cat is a woman, he changes his plan of action -- to a game of seduction!

Mysterious and tempting, she teases him. And, as the net closes around the Cat, Brandon realizes he wants to protect her as well as bed her. But the only way to catch her is to spring the parson's mousetrap -- and make her his countess!

even though I can't stand these kinds of books I had to admit the Pickpocket Countess cover made me chuckle. It looks cute in a rather..saucy way ;)
