Waiting on Wednesday (110)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Darker Still by Leanna Renee Hieber

The Picture of Dorian Gray meets Pride and Prejudice, with a dash of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

New York City, 1882. Seventeen-year-old Natalie Stewart's latest obsession is a painting of the handsome British Lord Denbury. Something in his striking blue eyes calls to her. As his incredibly life-like gaze seems to follow her, Natalie gets the uneasy feeling that details of the painting keep changing...

Jonathan Denbury's soul is trapped in the gilded painting by dark magic while his possessed body commits unspeakable crimes in the city slums. He must lure Natalie into the painting, for only together can they reverse the curse and free his damaged soul.
Doesn't this one sound amazing? I've been wanting to read more historical fiction type books lately, and this seems like it will fit the bill perfectly! And the cover is simply stunning! The dress especially.

Darker Still will be released November 8, 2011!
