Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming books that we are eagerly waiting to read.

This Week:

Maid of Deception by Jennifer McGowan

Release Date: August 26, 2014
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Beatrice Knowles is a Maid of Honor, one of Queen Elizabeth I’s secret protectors. Known for her uncanny ability to manipulate men’s hearts, Beatrice has proven herself to be a valuable asset in the Queen’s court—or so she thinks. It has been three weeks since the Maids thwarted a plot to overthrow the Queen, and Beatrice is preparing to wed her betrothed, Lord Cavanaugh. However, her plans come to a crashing halt as rumors of a brewing Scottish rebellion spread among the court.

Beatrice’s new assignment is to infiltrate the visiting Scottish delegation using her subtle arts in persuasion. The mission seems simple enough, until the Queen pairs Beatrice with the worst of the lot—Alasdair MacLeod. Beatrice cannot help but think that the Queen is purposefully setting her up for failure. But Alasdair could be the key to unlocking the truth about the rebellion….and her own heart. Caught in a web of ever-more-twisting lies, Beatrice must rise up among the Maids of Honor and prove what she’s known all along: In a court filled with deception and danger, love may be the deadliest weapon of all.

Why I’m Waiting
I absolutely loved MAID OF SECRETS. Loved it! If you don’t anything about this series, you should go read my review of that book. It was fantastic. This book is told from Beatrice’s POV and I’m so beyond excited. She is one of the maids that drove me insane in MOS but I couldn’t help but love. McGowan’s writing style is also excellent and the world she has created is something I can’t wait to dive back into. I NEED THIS BOOK!

What are you waiting on this week?
