Waiting on Wednesday #114

 
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine and is where we can talk about books we are looking forward to being released.
 
Knight Avenged (Circle of Seven, #2)
 
Summary:
 
Alone in a world on the brink of war…two unlikely allies will discover a love greater than time.

Exiled from her home, powerful oracle Cosmina Cordei holds the key to uniting those protecting mankind from evil. But just as she makes her way into the holy city to perform an ancient rite, the enemy closes in for the kill…

Drawn by a destiny he won’t accept, elite assassin Henrik Lazar detests the mystical curse handed down by his mother. But when the sorcery in his blood is activated and past pain comes back to haunt him, his new abilities come into play and he must learn to control them.

Rescued by Henrik in the heat of battle, Cosmina must decide whether to trust the assassin who loathes the goddess she serves or face certain death on her own. Forced into an untenable position, Henrik is left with a terrible choice—protect the magical Order he despises, or deny destiny and lose the woman he loves forever.

Expected Publication Date: July 15th 2014 by Montlake Romance
 
Why I'm waiting:
 
I absolutely loved the first book in Coreene Callahan's Circle of Seven series Knight Awakened when I read it back in 2013. I thought it was a great mixture of romance, fantasy and historical fiction so when I saw that book 2 (finally) had a release date I had to feature it.
 
Dust and Light (The Sanctuary Duet, #1)
 
Summary:
 
National bestselling author Carol Berg returns to the world of her award-winning Flesh and Spirit and Breath and Bone with an all-new tale of magic, mystery, and corruption....

How much must one pay for an hour of youthful folly? The Pureblood Registry accused Lucian de Remeni-Masson of “unseemly involvement with ordinaries,” which meant only that he spoke with a young woman not of his own kind, allowed her to see his face unmasked, worked a bit of magic for her....After that one mistake, Lucian’s grandsire excised half his magic and savage Harrowers massacred his family. Now the Registry has contracted his art to a common coroner. His extraordinary gift for portraiture is restricted to dead ordinaries—beggars or starvelings hauled from the streets.

But sketching the truth of dead men’s souls brings unforeseen consequences. Sensations not his own. Truths he cannot possibly know and dares not believe. The coroner calls him a cheat and says he is trying to weasel out of a humiliating contract. The Registry will call him mad—and mad sorcerers are very dangerous....

Why I'm Waiting:
 
I've been hearing good things about this author for awhile now, but still haven't got into her other series yet so I think I might use this one as my introduction to her writing but I have a feeling I won't be able to hold off on starting her books that long so I'll probably give another series of hers a go in the mean time.
 
 
What are you waiting on?
