"Waiting On" Wednesday - Scones and Sensibility

 

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

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Scones and Sensibility by Lindsay Eland
Release date:  Dec '09 by Egmont USA

Polly Madassa is convinced she was born for a more romantic time. A time when Elizabeth Bennet and Anne of Green Gables walked along the moors and beaches of the beautiful land, a time where a distinguished gentleman called upon a lady of quality and true love was born in the locked eyes of two young lovers.

But alas, she was not.

This, however, does not stop our young heroine from finding romance wherever she can conjure it up. So while Polly is burdened with a summer job of delivering baked goods from her parents bakery (how quaint!) to the people in her small beach town, she finds a way to force…um…encourage romance to blossom. She is determined to bring lovers, young and old, together…whether they want to be or not.

Why do I want to read this one?  Well, the cover is my favorite color, purple, and the title is intriguing.   Then, when I read the synopsis, I wanted to read it even more.  I have always thought I could have been born in another time period, so I'm very interested to read about Polly!

This was the only WoW I was going to post today, but then, I got this:


This is the cover for Cyn Balog's 2010 release, sleepless.  Isn't it pretty?

Sleepless is a paranormal about a Sandman who falls in love with a mortal whose sleep he controls.  Cyn also gave birth on Saturday, so stop by The B-log Blog to see her newest release and offer up your congratulations.  Congrats Cyn on your new little bundle of joy!

Can't wait for "Scones and Sensibility" either! So far I love everything of it : the title, the cover, thedescription! I hadn't heard of this "Sleepless", but it sounds like a very interesting idea.
