Waiting on Wednesday - Betraying Season


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



Betraying Season
by Marissa Doyle
Release date: September 29, 2009

Penelope Leland has come to Ireland to study magic and prove to herself that she is as good a witch as her twin sister Persy. But when Niall Keating begins to pay her court, she can't help being distracted from her studies. Especially when she learns that the handsome young nobleman is reputedly an illegitimate cousin of the new young Queen Victoria, her friend and idol, whom her sister saved from an ambitious wizard's control spell the year before.

Niall Keating has strict orders from his sorceress mother Lady Keating: to make young Miss Leland fall in love with him so that she can be convinced to use her magical powers to help reconcile him to his true father, the Duke of Cumberland, Queen Victoria's uncle. Niall is delighted to comply until he discovers his mother's true aim: to assassinate Queen Victoria by magic and put Niall's father on the throne of England.

Penelope is thrilled when Lady Keating reveals her powers and offers to tutor her in magic. But Niall has fallen deeply in love with the lovely young woman. Even if he halts his mother's evil plans, will Penelope be able to forgive him for trying to seduce her into a plot against her beloved queen?

  13. This looks interesting, and I love the cover, but I am a little leery because it reminds me of A Great and Terrible Beauty. Similar time, same genre, great cover, but I didn't like it.

  14. I feel like that book either has the potential to be really cheesy or really awesome. It's got a gorgeous cover though.
