Waiting on Wednesday (142)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

My picks for this week are...

Embers in a Dark Frost 
by Kelly Keaton 

The Fire Breathers have come. The Underworld calls. A choice must be made…

With her feared half blood and flame-colored hair, DEIRA D'ANU is a constant reminder of human betrayal and the war that claimed the light from Innis Fail. Now, darkness and frost creep across the land, strengthening the Lord of the Underworld. War is imminent—an allegiance with the Fire Breathers is vital. When their champion, Balen, sees Deira, he believes she is the key to finding the light and stopping the dark frost....

But the Underworld calls to Deira, tempting her to turn her back on a world that never cared and betray the champion willing to sacrifice everything to keep her safe and save his world from darkness. 
Ever since I first discovered Kelly Keaton's amazing story telling in Darkness Becomes Here I've been a huge fan. So when I heard about this, her first attempt in the self publishing market, I was beyond excited! It sounds like an amazing book, and I just ADORE the cover.

Embers in a Dark Frost will be released November 2012.

Nantucket Blue 
by Leila Howland
For Cricket Thompson, a summer like this one will change everything. A summer spent on Nantucket with her best friend, Jules Clayton, and the indomitable Clayton family. A summer when she’ll make the almost unattainable Jay Logan hers. A summer to surpass all dreams.

Some of this turns out to be true. Some of it doesn’t.

When Jules and her family suffer a devastating tragedy that forces the girls apart, Jules becomes a stranger whom Cricket wonders whether she ever really knew. And instead of lying on the beach working on her caramel-colored tan, Cricket is making beds and cleaning bathrooms to support herself in paradise for the summer.

But it’s the things Cricket hadn’t counted on--most of all, falling hard for someone who should be completely off-limits--that turn her dreams into an exhilarating, bittersweet reality.

A beautiful future is within her grasp, and Cricket must find the grace to embrace it. If she does, her life could be the perfect shade of Nantucket blue.
This one recently landed on my radar, and as I'm a huge sucker for any kind of summer romance read, I  instantly added it to my wish list. It sounds like the perfect kind of read, and I can't wait to see who Cricket falls for! It's surely going to be scandalous! :)

Nantucket Blue will be released May 7, 2013!
