Waiting on Wednesday #4 - Persuasion by Martina Boone

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking The Spine  
This is where we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released!!!
The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night!!! And, quite possibly, to make our shelves look pretty too :) 
What I'm currently waiting for... 

Title: Persuasion by Martina Boone
Release Date: October 28th 2015
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Goodreads Synopsis: 
Grieving the death of her godfather and haunted by her cousin Cassie’s betrayal, Barrie returns from a trip to San Francisco to find the Watson plantation besieged by reporters and ghost-hunters. Some are hoping to see the ancient spirit who sets the river on fire each night, while others are chasing rumors of a stolen shipment of Civil War gold that may be hidden at Colesworth Place. Chaos descends as Cassie hires a team of archeologists to excavate beneath the mansion ruins. But more is buried there than treasure.
A mysterious, magical man appears at Watson’s Landing, claiming the key to the Watson and Beaufort gifts and the Colesworth curse also lies beneath the mansion. With a mix of threats and promises, he engages Barrie and Cassie in a midnight visit, but the spell he conjurs has potentially deadly consequences.
While Barrie and dreamy Eight Beaufort struggle to make sense of the escalating danger and their growing feelings for each other, Barrie has to figure out not only whom to trust, but which gift is more reliable—Eight’s or her own. With millions of dollars and the fate of the founding families at stake, she must choose between what she feels deep in her heart and what will keep her loved ones safe.
Why I'm excited: My love for Martina Boone's first novel, Compulsion, is no secret. (I loved it so much I even joined the street team!) It's definitely one of my new favourite trilogies, so obviously I'm excited to read the sequel. The synopsis sounds like this sequel will have so many twists and turns (and hopefully answer a few questions ;). Also that cover. It's just so gorgeous, it'll look amazing in my bookshelf! Basically, I'm super excited for Persuasion because it sounds like it'll be just as awesome as Compulsion. I really can't wait!!

  2. Awesome choice! I have heard really great things about Compulsion so I may have to pick that one up and read it before this one releases.
