Waiting on Wednesday (47)

Midnight Thief by Livia Blackburne

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Expected Publication Date: July 8, 2014

Synopsis: (Taken from Goodreads)
Growing up on Forge’s streets has taught Kyra how to stretch a coin. And when that’s not enough, her uncanny ability to scale walls and bypass guards helps her take what she needs. 
But when the leader of the Assassins Guild offers Kyra a lucrative job, she hesitates. She knows how to get by on her own, and she’s not sure she wants to play by his rules. But he’s persistent—and darkly attractive—and Kyra can’t quite resist his pull.

Tristam of Brancel is a young Palace knight on a mission. After his best friend is brutally murdered by Demon Riders, a clan of vicious warriors who ride bloodthirsty wildcats, Tristam vows to take them down. But as his investigation deepens, he finds his efforts thwarted by a talented thief, one who sneaks past Palace defenses with uncanny ease.

When a fateful raid throws Kyra and Tristam together, the two enemies realize that their best chance at survival—and vengeance—might be to join forces. And as their loyalties are tested to the breaking point, they learn a startling secret about Kyra’s past that threatens to reshape both their lives.

Blog Tour-Character Post: Out of Mind by Jen McLaughlin


Reaching for sunlight...

Finn survived the ambush and came home to me, but in his head, the battle is still raging. He’s falling apart and I’m trying my best to pick up the pieces of him, to find the us we used to be. I love him as much as I ever did, but love isn’t enough to fix this. I thought telling my father about our relationship would be the hardest thing we’d ever have to face. I was wrong.

Lost in shadows...

All I wanted was to be worthy of Carrie. One mission, just one, and I’d be able to give her the future she deserved. Then everything went wrong, leaving me tainted and broken. Carrie wants me to be who I was, but all that’s left is what they made of me. I’m no good for her. No good for anyone like this. I have to figure out how to move forward. Alone.

Sometimes love isn’t enough…

Character Post

Hello, I’m Carrie Wallington, and I’m the heroine of Jen McLaughlin’s New York Times Bestselling OUT OF LINE series! The newest—and LAST—book in the series, OUT OF MIND, just hit stores on April 29th!

When the series started out, I was pretty na├»ve. I’d spent my whole life living under my dad’s strict thumb, and I was just starting college. I wanted nothing more than to be free. To make my own choices. To be young, stupid, and fun. Then I met Finn…

And everything changed.

A lot has happened since the night he came up to me on that dark beach. He’s pushed me away, pulled me closer, pushed me away again, gone to war, and then come home a different man. I’m still the same girl I was—not much has changed besides the fact that I love him more than anything.

But…he’s not the Finn I knew.

A lot of men like Finn go away, and come back as different men. Then it’s not just them that are trying to adjust to this new life, but us. The women who love them.

It’s hard. It’s almost impossible. But I love him…

Will we work through it, or will love not be enough this time?

I hope you’ve read my story, and maybe got to know our plight a little better. Did you read the series? Did you fall in love with Finn as much as I did?
