{Waiting on Wednesday} #34 Ashes on the Waves by Mary Lindsey

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.

This week I'm waiting on.....

Ashes on the Waves
Author: Mary Lindsey
Release Date: June 27, 2013
by, Philomel/Penguin
Liam MacGregor is cursed. Haunted by the wails of fantastical Bean Sidhes and labeled a demon by the villagers of D√≤chas, Liam has accepted that things will never get better for him—until a wealthy heiress named Annabel Leighton arrives on the island and Liam’s fate is changed forever.
With Anna, Liam finally finds the happiness he has always been denied; but, the violent, mythical Otherworlders, who inhabit the island and the sea around it, have other plans. They make a wager on the couple’s love, testing its strength through a series of cruel obstacles. But the tragedies draw Liam and Anna even closer. Frustrated, the creatures put the couple through one last trial—and this time it’s not only their love that’s in danger of being destroyed.
Based on Edgar Allan Poe’s chilling poem Annabel Lee, Mary Lindsey creates a frighteningly beautiful gothic novel that glorifies the power of true love. {Goodreads}
 I am a fan of Mary Lindsey. After reading her book Shattered Souls I knew I had to read anything and everything she wrote after that. She just has a way with making her writing flow beautifully and totally entrancing you throughout the book. Ashes on the Waves sounds soooo good! She does have a way with haunting novels doesn't she? All her books have this elegance with the haunting/creepy touch and I love it! Wagers on love? Love meant to be doomed? Yes please! And this cover! LOVE!! SO excited!!

What about you?
   What are you waiting on this week?

   Have a great Wednesday/week!!
