Welcome to Must-Get Monday, a blog series where every Monday I’ll showcase a novel that has just released or is releasing soon that I cannot wait to read.
This week I am featuring:
My Dear Miss Dupre
American Royalty, Book 1
by Grace Hitchcock
The cover to this novel has definitely captured my interest. I love the model’s cute smirk and I’m totally intrigued by the fact there are four men standing behind her. To me, this screams a hilarious story a’coming! And, the premise sounds awesome — a little bit Esther (in reverse) meets the Bachelorette. Definitely can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of this story!
About the Book
Willow Dupré never thought she would have to marry, but with her father’s unexpected retirement from running the prosperous Dupré sugar refinery, plans changed. The shareholders are unwilling to allow a female to take over the company without a man at her side, so her parents devise a plan–find Willow a spokesman king in order for her to become queen of the empire.
Willow is presented with thirty potential suitors from the families of New York society’s elite group called the Four Hundred. She has six months to court the group and is expected to eliminate men each month to narrow her beaus until she chooses one to marry, ending the competition with a wedding. Willow reluctantly agrees, knowing she must do what is best for the business. She doesn’t expect to find anything other than a proxy . . . until she meets Cullen Dempsey, and she must discover for herself if his motives are pure.
