"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which highlights upcoming release we are eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is Widow's Web (Elemental Assassin's #7) by Jennifer Estep.
Title: Widow's Web
Author: Jennifer Estep
Release Date: August 21, 2012
About Widow's Web:
My name is Gin, and I kill people. It’s something I've been doing for years as the assassin called Spider, but now, it’s turned into a necessity on my part just to survive all the lowlifes in Ashland who are gunning for me. The underworld is still in turmoil, and I seem to be on everyone’s hit list these days.
To add to Gin’s problems, her lover Owen’s ex is in town. Salina is back in Ashland to reclaim an old family legacy—and she thinks that Owen is hers for the taking. Also in the mix is Phillip Kincaid, a casino owner and all-around shady character who has a mysterious connection to both Owen and Salina.
Salina might seem like a sweet Southern belle, but there’s more to her than meets the eye. Her water elemental magic makes her a dangerous enemy—and someone who can go toe-to-toe with Gin’s Ice and Stone power. But Gin is determined to get to the bottom of Salina’s deadly scheme, even though it just might cost her everything…including Owen.
Why I'm Waiting for this book:
I've read all of the other books in this series and Gin Blanco is a favorite female heroine. She's tough, able to kick paranormal booty and yet has the capability to love. What's not to love about a woman like that?
