Waiting on Wednesday (66)

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine, and it is a way to show off the books you can't wait to be released!!

This week I chose:

"Fortune's Son"
by Emery Lee
Sourcebooks Casablanca
Release Date: Nov. 1, 2011

The following description is from goodreads.com:


Philip Drake is a titled but impoverished adventurer. Lady Susannah Messingham is a woman with a past looking to safeguard her future. When they meet by chance over a hazard table, their destinies change as unpredictably as a roll of the dice.

Emery Lee spins a web of drama, passion, and deceit deep in the world of high stakes gaming. This fascinating and original look at an unchartered aspect of 18th century life explores a gentleman ensnared by gambling and the wayward lady who redeems him.

I am loooving this cover! I can't believe this is the sequel to The Highest Stakes, they definitely went in a different direction with the cover! Hopefully this is as romantic as the cover suggests!

What are you waiting for this week???

Looks good, and I like the cover but her mouth looks weird, way too pouty... and like she has a mustache.
