Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, originally started at Breaking the Spine bookblog, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. I usually like to list a few reasons why this book made the top of my 'wish list', but it's purely up to you!

Here's my pick for this week:

Title: Guardian

Author: Claire Delacroix

Publication Date: September 29th, 2009

Genre: Romance, Paranormal

Series: The Prometheus Project, Book 2


The Eyes of the Republic are Everywhere. The victim of what she believes is a malicious kidnapping, seer Delilah Desjardins quickly realizes that her abductor is on a mission to save her from assassins. Rafe, a fallen angel, must ensure that Delilah, blessed with the gift of foresight, reaches her true calling as an oracle for the Republic--and if his divine calling results in a more earthly relationship between the two of them, well, he doesn’t mind that at all.

Drawn to Rafe, but fearing the loss of her gifts should she surrender to his charms, Delilah knows she has to leave him. But fleeing his guardianship sets the assassins on her trail again. As Rafe races to save Delilah, he knows he isn’t just saving her for the good of the Republic, for the angels, or for the future--he’s saving her for himself.


I just came across this one today while looking on another blogger's list of upcoming books they wanted. I've not read any of Delacroix's books, though I have a lot of her older historicals on my wish list already-- didn't know she had a paranormal series out! :D Sounds really good though!

For more information on this series, along with an excerpt for the book, click here!

Oh, and you know what I just found out? Delacroix writes under the name Deborah Cooke as well! I never realized that, but I've got all her Dragon shapeshifter novels on my list too... Well, they say you learn something new every day, right? So here's the website for her other pen name. :)



Until Next Time, The Book Queen

I've been dying to rad Cooke's series, but I haven't yet. It's so hard having a looong list of books you want to read, and then trying to prioritize which ones to buy when you go to the store. LOL.
