“Waiting On” Wednesday: A Three-Fer

Lonely girl with suitcase at country road.

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that I’m eagerly anticipating.

There have been sort of a bonanza of book covers for me (coveranzi?) revealed recently, so I really couldn’t pick just one thing I’m waiting for this week.  Last week the cover for Touched showed up - this sounds really good despite being told from a guy’s perspective (cooties!).  Cyn says on her blog that there’s romance in there despite it not really saying so in the blurb – so, bonus.

My love for Gena Showalter knows very few bounds, so I had mad love times two from her this month.  The cover for The Darkest Seduction, which is for Paris, that wicked Lord of the Underworld plagued by the demon of Promiscuity, was revealed and there’s a pretty and sweaty cover for the first book in her new Angels of the Dark series, Wicked Nights.

Like I could pick just one.
