Waiting On Wednesday # 116 – Untamed City: Carnival of Lies & Mai Tai'd Up

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where I have the chance to spotlight an upcoming release that I’m eagerly anticipating.

Untamed City: Carnival of Lies
Author: Melissa Marr
Series: Untamed City #1.5
Genre: TA Fantasy
Expected Publication: December 2nd 2014

A digital original novella set in the twisted world of the Untamed City created by Melissa Marr

Carnival of Secrets fans will be thrilled for this never-before-seen moment between Aya and Belias, set in the Untamed City universe.

Mai Tai'd Up
Author: Alice Clayton
Series: Cocktail #4
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Expected Publication: December 2nd 2014

Looking for the perfect mix of smart, sexy, and sassy? Mai Tai’d Up continues USA TODAY bestselling author Alice Clayton’s Cocktail series, which began with Wallbanger and continued with Rusty Nailed and Screwdrivered.

Eligible bachelor Lucas Campbell is very available, but very picky. A veterinarian in Monterey, California, his life is perfect: he works, he sails, he loves the ocean and the mountains—so why rock the boat? Then Miss Chloe Patterson comes along.

Chloe has the body of a supermodel, the mouth of a sailor, and the fashion sense of teenage guy in 1990s Seattle. A former Miss California, she walked away from a cushy life, bought an old ranch outside Monterey, and turned it into Our Gang, a sanctuary for rescued and abandoned pit bulls. A woman who’s clearly not afraid of dog poop, she enjoys rehabilitating her “warrior angels.”

Local gossip reports that she ditched her fiancé the night before their wedding (true), and that she moved up north to start a new life (also true). She didn’t want to be tied down (true), but she wouldn’t mind being tied up—especially by that hot vet she’s seen around town a few times (true, true, and have-you-seen-his-butt?-true).

But is Chloe ready to date again? And is Lucas ready to take on not only Chloe, but forty pit bulls? One moonlit sail, two bottles of wine, and a few sailor knots might just do the trick.

  1. I'm not familiar with either of these books but they both have great covers.
    I still have Melissa Marr's Wickedly Lovely series on my wishlist. Not sure though when I will get around to reading it. Maybe in 2015.
