Waiting on Wednesday

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine.

We share those books we can’t wait to get our hands on!


This week I could have so easily just picked one of the lovely books off my Cover Madness giveaway list and featured that title.  But where’s the fun in that?  I’m being particularly naughty this week and picking two books.  I usually don’t like to do that but I couldn’t resist.  Sorry!!!

About the Book:

Once a heart is lost in shadow…


Life has been anything but kind to Mary Chase. But the Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals has given her purpose. Now she’s been tasked with catching a vicious murderer dubbed the Bishop of Charing Cross. But someone is already on the case—and the last thing he relishes is a partner.


Only someone who lives in darkness can find it.


Jack Talent has been alone with his demons for many years. He never expected to have the willful Mary Chase assist him on the Bishop case. Their age-old rivalry reaches new heights—even as their desire for one another reaches a fever pitch. Though he aches to bring her close, Jack’s dark secrets are a chasm between them. With dangerous enemies closing in, Jack must find the strength to face the past…or risk losing Mary forever.

Why Am I Waiting?

It’s Jack’s book, that’s why!  I’ve said all you need to know…

About the Book:

Before she goes after the life she’s always wanted, she’s about to find the one she needs.


Pepper has been hopelessly in love with her best friend’s brother, Hunter, for like ever. He’s the key to everything she’s always craved: security, stability, family. But she needs Hunter to notice her as more than just a friend. Even though she’s kissed exactly one guy, she has just the plan to go from novice to rock star in the bedroom—take a few pointers from someone who knows what he’s doing.


Her college roommates have the perfect teacher in mind. But bartender Reece is nothing like the player Pepper expects. Yes, he’s beyond gorgeous, but he’s also dangerous, deep—with a troubled past. Soon what started as lessons in attraction are turning both their worlds around, and showing just what can happen when you go past foreplay and get to what’s real…

Why Am I Waiting?

Summer = romance, at least to me.  I’m thinking by the cold, dreary days of early November, I’m going to need a warm up.  I love the cover, too.  And I’m pretty fond of everything William Morrow has been putting out so far in the New Adult genre 🙂


What Are You Waiting On?






About Kristin

Kristin has to ensure she gets her minimal requirement of "happily ever after" books in between those books that contain cliffhangers and never-ending story arcs. It's for her family's sake. When not reading, she's homeshooling her 10-year old son, watching cartoons on TV, or taking a nap.
