Originally hosted by Breaking the Spine, Waiting on Wednesday has now linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings and it’s exactly as it sounds: we post about books that haven’t been published yet, but we’re salivating by the time the publication date hits.
This week, the book that made me do a double take when I realize it not only had a release date, but a cover, as well, was:
Nightchaser by Amanda Bouchet
Publication Date: January 1st, 2019
A delicious new heart-pounding romantic adventure from USA Today bestseller Amanda Bouchet!
Captain Tess Bailey and her crew of Robin Hood-like thieves are desperate and on the run. Pursued by a vicious military general who wants them dead or alive, Tess has to decide if she can trust Shade Ganavan, a tall, dark and arrogant stranger with ambiguous motivations.
Shade Ganavan had oodles of arrogance, oodles of charm, and oodles of something that made me want to kick him in the nuts.
What Tess and Shade don’t know about each other might get them killed…unless they can set aside their differences and learn to trust each other—while ignoring their off-the-charts chemistry.
My excitement for this book is pretty high, friends.
I’ve read all three books in Bouchet’s previous trilogy, the Kingmaker Chronicles, and I positively adored them. I’m a sucker for a good romance (usually in the regency vein, with a spattering of steampunk) so when I got a great romance in a fantasy setting with fantastic interweaving and influence of ancient Greek mythology, I felt like I hit the romantic wishlist jackpot (especially when you have a man like Griffin to swoon over. I’m pretty sure I’m still not over him). But not only that, but out of all the romances I’ve read (which, to be fair, isn’t a ton, but it’s still a good amount), I’ve never connected with a female protagonist so much as I have with Cat.
So, even forcing myself to stop talking about that series before I continue raving like I did in the reviews over each book (which can be found as follows: Book One, Two and Three), I think you get the gist of how much I enjoyed these books and the strength of this writer.
And now you’re telling me I get to not only read more from her, but also in space!?
Yeah, as soon as this book was announced, I was excited. And now I’ve gotta figure out a way to tell my boyfriend that instead of partying on New Years, we (I?) have other plans that include meeting Tess Bailey and then getting pissed at myself for reading the book in one sitting.
