Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It spotlights upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.
For this week I've chosen a very promising new series by one of my favorite urban fantasy authors, Jenn Bennet . Take a look:
Series: Roaring Twenties, #1
Release: January 7th 2014
Publisher: Berkley Sensation
MM Paperback, 400 pages
Pre-order: The Book Depository
First in a new romance series: It’s the roaring twenties, and San Francisco is a hotbed of illegal boozing, raw lust, and black magic. The fog-covered Bay Area can be an intoxicating scene, particularly when you specialize in spirits…Aida Palmer performs a spirit medium show onstage at Chinatown’s illustrious Gris-Gris speakeasy. However, her ability to summon (and expel) the dead is more than just an act.Winter Magnusson is a notorious bootlegger who’s more comfortable with guns than ghosts—unfortunately for him, he’s the recent target of a malevolent hex that renders him a magnet for hauntings. After Aida’s supernatural assistance is enlisted to banish the ghosts, her spirit-chilled aura heats up as the charming bootlegger casts a different sort of spell on her...On the hunt for the curseworker responsible for the hex, Aida and Winter become drunk on passion. And the closer they become, the more they realize they have ghosts of their own to exorcise…
Jenn is the author of the Arcadia Bell urban fantasy series, and I know I can trust her to pull this off and create a whole new set of characters I'll grow to love. Aida and Winter both sound apsolutely fascinating, I can't wait to meet them.
Jenn Bennett will be here on October 10th to talk about this book and she'll be giving stuff away, so make sure to stop by and say hello. :)
What are you excited about this week?
