Waiting on Wednesday: Fiery Heart and Brazen

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Here are my two picks for today. Both sound like bodice-ripper romance novels. One comes out really soon, and the other in months….

The Fiery Heart (Bloodlines #4)

Eeep -- I'm SO excited for this one. I'm a big fan of Richelle Mead and this series. I just know that something terrible is going to happen in this book (I have my theories, which I have discussed with Lauren @ Love is Not a Triangle) and I can't wait to get reading.

Summary: Mary Howard has always lived in the shadow of her powerful family. But when she’s married off to Henry Fitzroy, King Henry VIII’s illegitimate son, she rockets into the Tudor court’s inner circle. Mary and “Fitz” join a tight clique of rebels who test the boundaries of court’s strict rules with their games, dares, and flirtations. The more Mary gets to know Fitz, the harder she falls for him, but is forbidden from seeing him alone. The rules of court were made to be pushed…but pushing them too far means certain death. Is true love worth dying for?

My take: I really liked Gilt and LOVED Tarnish, and have become a big fan of this author. I'm excited that she's decided to write about Henry Fitzroy, because that was not what I was expecting -- both Gilt and Tarnish had to do with Henry VIII's wives and consorts.

What book(s) are you eagerly anticipating? Leave me a comment and/or a link! I'm back to returning comments promptly -- thanks for your patience :)
