Waiting On Wednesday #6


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by
Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases
that we're eagerly anticipating.


(click the title)

This week I went looking to feed my romance cravings somewhere else. I found myself browsing through the historical romance section of my Amazon recommendations and came across this. Yep... definitely think this'll hit the spot.


Breathless

Anne Stuart / Historical Romance
Release Date: October 1, 2010

Ruined beyond repair and shunned by London society, lovely Caroline Rohan rebelliously embraces the freedom that comes from having nothing left to lose. However, this dangerous course throws her under the power of the darkly enigmatic Lucien de Malheur—known to many as the Scorpion. Seeking to destroy the Rohans, Lucien traps Caroline in a marriage she thinks is based on friendship but instead is rooted in vengeance. Yet even when she realizes the truth, their enmity fuels a shocking passion—and perhaps even more. Such a man might drive anyone to murder





Yep, you all warned me but I have a FULL BLOWN addiction to the Black Dagger Brotherhood and I'm about to hit MAJOR withdrawals. I bought the first 3 of the series and *shock horror gasp* RAN OUT OF MONEY (If I had've known I wouldn't have gone so nuts earlier this week on books) Seeing I'm about to start book 3, having completely DEVOURED Wrath and Rhage's books, it's a very real possibility that I'm going to finished and have nothing left to do but wait :( So with that heartache in mind (do you feel sorry for me yet?) I introduce to you .... WAITING FOR PAYDAY



Lover Revealed

JR Ward / Paranormal Romance
Already released

Butch O'Neal is a fighter by nature. A hard living, ex-homicide cop, he's the only human ever to be allowed in the inner circle of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. And he wants to go even deeper into the vampire world to engage in the turf war with the lessers. He's got nothing to lose. His heart belongs to a female vampire, Marissa, an aristocratic beauty who's way out of his league. If he can't have her, then at least he can fight side by side with the Brothers. Fate curses him with the very thing he wants. When Butch sacrifices himself to save a civilian vampire from the slayers, he falls prey to the darkest force in the war. Left for dead, he's found by a miracle, and the Brotherhood calls Marissa to bring him back. But even her love may not be enough to save him

Breathless sounds incredibly interesting.

Jan von Harz said...

How funny and yet tragic at the same time. I do know the feeling. Hope you can find someone to subsidize your habit so you can get the next book.

Romy @ Lost.in.Stories said...

I feel your pain for I too have an addiction to the Black Dagger Brotherhood, I'm up to Phury's book which will be included in my next book depository order which I have a feeling is going to be huge, so many books to read!

I love the sound of Breathless, it's going on my TBR list.

Thanks :)

Book Sake said...

Joy said...

I love Anne Stuart books, and haven't read one in awhile. I will have to add this to my never ending TBR list.

jackie b central texas said...

Anne Stuart was read by me so long ago, looking at Breathless I think it is time to start reading her again!

Yes the dreaded piggy bank being empty and having to wait for payday to buy a much wanted book, or two!

Lu said...

Ooooh you are going to love Lover Revealed! Butch is such a awesome character :)

Jenny said...

Talk about a striking cover. Both are eye-catching and they sound interesting to boot! Thanks for visiting my blog. :)

Bella said...

OOH - I don't read much in the Historical Romance genre, but Breathless sounds rather intriguing, lol ... not quite the typical romance, what with vengeance marriages and people contemplating murder and such :)

Jessica said...

Not too big on historical romance, but I do like your idea of Waiting for Payday! Might have to do that one myself occasionally!

Angela said...

I'm looking forward to Breathless as well, Ruthless was the first book I've read by Anne Stuart so I'm also looking forward to finding her backlist. LOL

I am a huge BDB fan. That must be the UK cover for Lover Revealed. Can't wait to hear what you think of it - and Lover Awakened. (Lover Eternal and Lover Awakened both made my Shelf of Awesome post that I did earlier this month)

Claire @ YA Bookie Monster said...

These books sound awesome! I love both historical and paranormal romance, so great choices!

Thanks for checking out my WoW!

ParaJunkee said...

I haven't heard of that one. Thanks for the intro and visiting!

Jessica Lawlor said...

I've never really been into these kinds of books before- maybe it's something I need to give a try sometime soon! Thanks for the suggestion!

Maria (Serpentine Library) said...

I've just recently started reading historical romance, so I'll have to add this one to my list...thanks :-)

Life After Jane said...

Breathless sounds really good and I love your Waiting for Payday feature. So very true.
