.Waiting On Wednesday: Dark Witch by @NoraRoberts & Delia's Shadow by @jaimeleemoyer

Hosted by

This week I'm waiting on two books. The first is by the very popular Nora Roberts, having never read ANY of her previous books (GASP, I know, right?) I'm highly intrigued by this one. Maybe it's the idea of witches that has me drawn to this paranormal read. My second wow is a dark, romantic fantasy by Jaime Lee Moyer. This is Jaime's debut, and I really like the mystery of the hauntings, and ghosts, plus the blurb from Rae Carson sold me "A gorgeous and haunting book" Hmm.. so what are you waiting on?

Dark Witch (The Cousins O'Dwyer Trilogy, #1)
Dark Witch
by Nora Roberts
Expected publication: November 5th 2013 by Berkley Trade
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes a trilogy about the land we’re drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to love…

With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends.


County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations—and where her destiny awaits.

Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan’s directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O’Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives.

When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he’s three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package.

Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself—and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Iona’s family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope—and love—alive…

Delia's Shadow
Delia's Shadow
by Jaime Lee Moyer
Expected publication: September 17th 2013 by Tor

A dark, romantic fantasy set against the backdrop of San Francisco devastated by the Great Quake

It is the dawn of a new century in San Francisco and Delia Martin is a wealthy young woman whose life appears ideal. But a dark secret colors her life, for Delia’s most loyal companions are ghosts, as she has been gifted (or some would say cursed) with an ability to peer across to the other side.

Since the great quake rocked her city in 1906, Delia has been haunted by an avalanche of the dead clamoring for her help. Delia flees to the other side of the continent, hoping to gain some peace. After several years in New York, Delia believes she is free…until one determined specter appears and she realizes that she must return to the City by the Bay in order to put this tortured soul to rest.

It will not be easy, as the ghost is only one of the many victims of a serial killer who was never caught. A killer who after thirty years is killing again.

And who is now aware of Delia’s existence
