Waiting On Wednesday # 145 – The Veil / Cale

I am excited to get my hands on Chloe Neill's new Urban Fantasy series!!
The third book in the Walk of Shame series is going to be great too!

The Veil (Devil's Isle, #1)
Title: The Veil
Author: Chloe Neill
Series: Devil's Isle #1
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Expected Publication: August 4th 2015

Seven years ago, the Veil that separates humanity from what lies beyond was torn apart, and New Orleans was engulfed in a supernatural war. Now, those with paranormal powers have been confined in a walled community that humans call the District. Those who live there call it Devil's Isle.

Claire Connolly is a good girl with a dangerous secret: she’s a Sensitive, a human endowed with magic that seeped through the Veil. Claire knows that revealing her skills would mean being confined to Devil’s Isle. Unfortunately, hiding her power has left her untrained and unfocused.

Liam Quinn knows from experience that magic makes monsters of the weak, and he has no time for a Sensitive with no control of her own strength. But when he sees Claire using her powers to save a human under attack—in full view of the French Quarter—Liam decides to bring her to Devil’s Isle and the teacher she needs, even though getting her out of his way isn’t the same as keeping her out of his head.

But when the Veil threatens to shatter completely, Claire and Liam must work together to stop it, or else New Orleans will burn…

Cale (Walk of Shame #3)
Title: Cale
Author: Victoria Ashley
Series: Walk of Shame #3
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Expected Publication: July 2015

My name is Cale Kinley and I’m a fucking Virgin…
Well, with the exception of my tongue. The countless things I can do with my tongue are bound to leave you breathless and begging for more, but more… is something that I can’t give. It’s a choice. My choice.

There’s a reason for that. A very good reason, and that reason is her.


She’s the only woman that I want to bury myself deep in. The one woman I have wanted since I was old enough to fuck.

I never got my chance though, because she left. She had no choice and it stung like hell. But I couldn’t let her leave without telling her how I felt. I wanted her to be my first and I didn’t give a shit how long I’d have to wait.

It’s been six years and now she’s back and sexier than all hell. Just the sight of her stops my damn heart from beating. I want her and for more than just having her as my first.

I’m determined to have her in every way possible. She thinks this is still a game; that I’ve already given myself to countless women. What she doesn’t know is that I have a lot of willpower.

When I want something as badly as I want her, I don’t let shit stand in my way. I’m going to prove that to her. There’s just one little problem I need to take care of…


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


  1. Wow! Both of these sound awesome Naomi! I like to read about magical abilities, and The Veil sounds awesome, like a mix of Urban Fantasy and Dystopian. Cale sounds interesting! A virgin, who's gifted in other ways... Great WOW Picks!

  2. I've always wanted to read a Chloe Neill book, so perhaps this one will be my chance. :) I hope you'll enjoy these, Naomi!

  3. The Veil sounds interesting. I haven't read any of Chloe's books yet. maybe this will be the first.
    Cale... hmm... a male virgin. There's not to many of those around. I wonder who the 'him' is, he needs to take care of. Hope you enjoy both of these.

  4. Does Veil release later in Australia? I'm looking forward to that one myself, Naomi, I already own it, but soon, I'll read it!
    I haven't heard of Cale before... Might have to check that one out as well.
    Have a wonderful Wednesday and happy reading.
