Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme held by Jill at Breaking The Spine where bloggers feature books that are not yet released that they can't wait to get their hands on!
My pick this week:
The Rouge's Princess by Eve Edwards
1586– London, England. Sixteen-year-old Mercy Hart is the daughter of one of London’s richest – and strictest – cloth merchants. Kit Turner is an actor and the illegitimate son of the late Earl of Dorset. A chance encounter finds Kit falling for the beautiful Mercy’s charms, but their love is forbidden. A merchant’s daughter and a vagabond – it simply cannot be. If Mercy chooses Kit she must renounce her family name and leave her home. Will she favour duty over true love, or will she give Kit his heart’s desire?
Release Date: 4th July
Why I want to read it:
I absolutely loved the first two books in this Lacey Romance series, The Other Countess and The Queen's Lady (click to see reviews) so I can't wait for the third one to be released to find out what happens next. Kit, the main character of this book was introduced in the Queen's Lady and I'm looking forward to finding out more about Will and James Lacey's (the love interests of the first two books) illegitimate brother and the girl he loves. Bring on more history, romance, swoon worthy heroes and Tudor intrigue.......
I like the blue colour scheme for this book with the pretty swirls but it just looks too much liken adult romance to me and I'm still disappointed that they changed the cover designs for this series.
What are you waiting on?
