Waiting on Wednesday (#21)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. 

Jess's WoW
Deeper Into You (Crossfire #2)
by Sylvia Day
Release date: October 2nd, 2012
Gideon Cross. As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn't stay away. I didn't want to. He was my addiction... my every desire... mine.
My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We'd never work. It was too hard, too painful... except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity.
We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession...
Jess's Thoughts: Very excited about this. I loved Bared To You. Although I'm not a fan of this cover I can't wait to get to Gideon Cross and all his flaws. I simply cannot wait until this book is released. I'm so excited. I love the series so far and I can't wait for more from Gideon and Eva.

Donna's WoW
Scent of Magic (Healer, #2)
Scent of Magic

by Maria V.Synder
Release date: 2013

Hunted, Killed - Survived?
As the last Healer in the Fifteen Realms, Avery of Kazan is in a unique position: in the minds of her friends and foes alike, she no longer exists. Despite her need to prevent the megalomanical King Tohon from winning control of the Realms, Avery is also determined to find her sister and repair their estrangement. And she must do it alone, as Kerrick, her partner and sole confident, returns to Alga to summon his country into battle.
Though she should be in hiding, Avery will do whatever she can to support Tohon’s opponents. Including infiltrating a holy army, evading magic sniffers, teaching forest skills to soldiers and figuring out how to stop Tohon’s most horrible creations yet; an army of the walking dead - human and animal alike and nearly impossible to defeat.
War is coming and Avery is alone. Unless she figures out how to do the impossible ... again.
Donna's thoughts: I adored the first book and totally fell in love with the characters, so I'm dying for this book. Maria did a great job with Touch of Power, so I know this will be fantastic plus more Kerrick!!
