Willful Impropriety: 13 Tales of Society, Scandal, and Romance
By Ekaterina Sedia
Publisher: Running Press Book
Publication Date: September 4, 2012



 The Season has finally arrived, filled with the magnificent balls, scandalous gossip, and clandestine romances that every lord and lady in good society has come to expect. But far within the walls of lavish estates and in the dark corners of the city lies a world that the aristocracy dares not touch, with rules and risks that glamour cannot overpower. Yet true love has no boundaries, and heiresses and street thieves alike must use their savvy and strength to create new beginnings and happily-ever-afters. Sometimes luck is enough, but every once in a while, a touch of magic may be needed.

Deliciously alluring, these thirteen historical romances from a talented array of YA authors will make even the most cynical heart swoon.(synopsis from Barnes and Noble)

I LOVE the cover! I'm not usually a fan of short stories - (if they are good they are too short and leave me aching for more!) but I might have to break down and give this one a go..I'm also not a huge fan of straight romance, but these sound intriguing enough.. I really liked the one Leanna Renee Hieber book I read, so seeing her name gives me some confidence, and I love this particular time frame! :D

Oh. My. God. That cover is stunning! I have some Japanese dolls I sew for and I might give a finger to figure out the pattern for this dress for them. Oh, the book sounds awesome too. :D
