Waiting on Wednesday {2}

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

Scandalous Desires (Maiden Lane #3) by Elizabeth Hoyt
Mass Market Paperback, 384 pages
Expected publication: November 1st 2011 
Published by Grand Central Publishing 
Description from Goodreads:
Can a pirate learn that the only true treasure lies within a woman’s heart?

“Charming” Mickey O’Connor is the most ruthless river pirate in London. Devastatingly handsome and fearsomely intelligent, he clawed his way up through London’s criminal underworld. Mickey has no use for tender emotions like compassion and love, and he sees people as pawns to be manipulated. Yet he’s never been able to forget the naive captain’s wife who came to him a year ago for help—and spent one memorable night in his bed...talking.

Widowed Silence Hollingbrook is impoverished, lovely, and kind--and a year ago she made a horrible mistake. She went to a river pirate for help in saving her husband and in the process made a bargain that cost her her marriage. That night wounded her so terribly that she hides in the foundling home she helps run with her brother. Except now that same river pirate is back...and he’s asking for her help. 

I'm eagerly anticipating the next release in Elizabeth Hoyt's Maiden Lane series. I loved the first one Wicked Intentions, which I read at the beginning of the year and the second was released in February. I've wanted to read Silence's story since she was introduced in the first book and can't wait for November. Hoyt had me captivated by the shadowy, dark and mysterious world of St. Giles, London and I really appreciated that she looked outside the Ton for a regency romance setting. Her books take readers into the underworld of London society and I can't wait to read about sexy Pirates :p

What are you waiting for?
