Once Upon a Tower (Fairy Tales, #5)
Once Upon a Tower
By: Eloisa James

Once upon a time…

A duke fell in love

Gowan Stoughton of Craigievar, Duke of Kinross, values order and self-control above all else. So when he meets a lady as serene as she is beautiful, he promptly asks for her hand in marriage.

With a lady 

Edie—whose passionate temperament is the opposite of serene—had such a high fever at her own debut ball that she didn’t notice anyone, not even the notoriously elusive Duke of Kinross. When her father accepts his offer… she panics.

And when their marriage night isn’t all it could be, she pretends.

In a tower. 

But Edie’s inability to hide her feelings makes pretending impossible, and when their marriage implodes, she retreats to a tower—locking Gowan out.

Now Gowan faces his greatest challenge. Neither commands nor reason work with his spirited young bride. How can he convince her to give him the keys to the tower…

When she already has the keys to his heart?

Proposed Publication Date: May 28, 2013


  1. I still need to try Eloisa James's books. I love Julia Quinn and a friend who is also a fan suggested Eloisa James. This book sounds interesting especially since it is about a married couple with serious issues. I saw the cover and title and thought maybe it was a retelling of Rapunzel!

  2. I loved WHen Beauty Tamed the Beast and I'm looking forward to this one.

  3. Great choice, I just picked up A Kiss At Midnight and can't wait to read it!

    My WoW!

  4. Great choice! I can't wait for this either : )

    my WOW and giveaway

  5. Like I needed a legitimate reason to be at the bookstore on Tuesday. Thanks a lot. LOL!
