This week I plan on sitting back and reading. No writing, no editing, just reading. This week I feature all the books I've read since opening the Boudoir and give a hearty thank you to those who've read along and cheered me on.

It's been a wonderful year! I've met some new friends and found some new authors. This year's lingerie has featured Victoria's Secret; AdoreMe; and Old Navy. I can't wait to see what the New Year has in store. I'm always looking for nice boutiques and would love to feature some local vendors. Among the lingerie M2 Vinter Inc. donated a lovely bottle of wine for Liana De La Rosa's debut book.

this weeks PJ's

This weeks jammies are a gift from my sister. Oh how she knows me so well. The Llama pj's hail from Old Navy and the great box framed picture is from my husband. 


It's been lovely sharing this with you. Enjoy the gallery of pics from this year and have a Happy Holiday.

Christmas Honeymoon...

How appropriate to be reading about brides in December since my anniversary is this month. I kick off Christmas with not one, but two bride's books. From St. Martin's Press debut author Janna MacGregor come two new Regency Romances you will fall in love with. Don't forget to check out this week's lingerie pics. There's a lovely shot of an autographed copy of "The Bride Who Got Lucky" Thank you Janna!

DECEMBER BOUDOIR READ

12/01  TO  12/16

"The Bad Luck Bride"    &   "The Bride Who Got Lucky"
Cavensham Heiresses series.
by: Janna MacGregor

BLURB:

The Bad Luck Bride:
No one is left breathless at the imperious pronouncement of her engagement to Lord Pembrooke more than Claire. She hardly knows the dangerously outrageous man! But after three engagements gone awry and a fourth going up in glorious flames, she isn’t in a position to refuse...

Alexander requires the hand of his enemy’s fiancée in marriage in order to complete his plans for revenge. It’s his good fortune that the “cursed” woman is desperate. However, what begins as a sham turns into something scandalously deeper...

The Bride Who Got Lucky:
He would do anything to protect her. Even marry her…

The son of a cold-hearted duke, Nicholas St. Mauer isn’t one to involve himself in society…or open his own heart to anyone. But driven by honor, the reclusive Earl of Somerton feels obliged to keep a watchful eye on Lady Emma Cavensham. She possesses a penchant for passions unbecoming a woman that finds Nick in constant peril of losing his well-structured solitude. She even dared kiss Nick once—an utterly unladylike, and delightful, lapse…

Emma can’t deny the appeal of the earl’s attention, and occasional affection, but she has no need for a man. There are worse fates than spinsterhood, as Emma knows too well. She still mourns the loss of her dear friend Lena, and is determined to prove Lena’s husband responsible for her death before he lures another innocent woman into a brutal marriage. But as Emma pursues her prey, a compromising moment upends all her plans. Now, with gossip swirling and her reputation in tatters, Nick may be the only man brave enough to join in Emma’s cause. . .and fight for her heart.

Lingerie by: Victoria's Secret                         Regency Phrase: Civil Whiskers = Polite small talk

One of my absolute favorites is this soft gray and white lace baby doll. The chiffon skirting is ideal for every figure and the halter style is a bit of Marilyn Monroe. While reading Emma and Nick's story in "The Bride Who Got Lucky" I couldn't stop thinking about this lovely feminine lace nighty. Of course you can't go wrong with white for a wedding, and add some lovely white stockings, and the whole outfit radiates pure delight. Passionate and comfy, the best of both worlds.
