Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine.
Let’s see what I’m waiting on this week. . .
Hello and welcome to our May Book Avengers post! Today we are featuring A Gathering of Shadows by V.E. Schwab, the sequel to our April pick. We absolutely LOVED book one, A Darker Shade of Magic and were (maybe just a little bit) hoping that your guys would vote for us to continue on.
The plan is simple:
1. Descend from the Highlands to face the aggravation of a London Season;
2. Foist his wild sister off on some gullible English lord;
3. Retreat before the ladies of the scandalized ton can get any ideas.
Determined to see his hellion of a sister wed, Highlander Alexander Waters is willing to face anything—even the English. He just didn’t expect his own rough manners to cause such a riot…or for a blooming English rose to catch his eye.
Gently bred Catherine Middlebrook must find a respectable man to marry or her family will be ruined. She won’t allow herself to be distracted by Highland barbarians…no matter how her body may thrill whenever Alex is near.
Catherine wasn’t part of the plan, but as their battle of wills escalates, Alex comes to realize this “proper” English girl is as wild as the Highlands themselves…and nothing will stop him from having her.
