"Wishlist Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Pen to Paper that spotlights those upcoming releases that we're dying to get our hands on.
I had a REALLY hard time choosing just one book this week because there are at least three at the very top of my list.
This week's Wishlist Wednesday selection is: A Lady by Midnight by Tessa Dare.
After years of fending for herself, Kate Taylor found friendship and acceptance in Spindle Cove--but she never stopped yearning for love. The very last place she'd look for it is in the arms of Corporal Thorne. The militia commander is as stone cold as he is brutally handsome. But when mysterious strangers come searching for Kate, Thorne steps forward as her fiance. He claims to have only Kate's safety in mind. So why is there smoldering passion in his kiss?
Long ago, Samuel Thorne devoted his life to guarding Kate’s happiness. He wants what's best for her, and he knows it's not marriage to a man like him. To outlast their temporary engagement, he must keep his hands off her tempting body and lock her warm smiles out of his withered heart. It's the toughest battle of this hardened warrior's life...and the first he seems destined to lose.
Ever since I read the first book in Tessa Dare's Spindle Cove series, I've been curious about Kate. She's more mysterious than the other two heroines from the previous books, and who can resist a tall, handsome, brooding militia commander with a secret like Samuel Thorne? Plus, just look at the cover! It's steamy, passionate and it's my favorite color!
A Lady by Midnight will be released August 28, 2012 (That sound you hear is my body hitting the ground in a dead faint over the wait).
