Waiting on Wednesday: Price of Privilege

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each week offers the opportunity to spotlight an up-and-coming release you are excited about.

Waiting On:
Title: Price of Privilege
Author: Jessica Dotta
Publisher: Tyndale House
Publication Date: January 2015

Synopsis:
From Barnes & Noble
Having finally discovered the truth of her birthright, Julia Elliston is determined to outwit Chance Macy at his own game. Holding a secret he’d kill to keep, however, is proving more difficult than she imagined.

Just when Julia thinks she’s managed to untangle herself from Macy’s clutches, he changes tactics with a risky ploy. As the scandal of the century breaks loose, drawing rooms all over London whisper what so far newspapers have not dared to print: Macy’s lost bride is none other than Lord Pierson’s daughter—and one of the most controversial cases of marital law ever seen comes before Victorian courts.

Though Julia knows Macy’s version of events is another masterful manipulation, public opinion is swaying in his favor. Caught in a web of deceit and lies, armed only with a fledgling faith, Julia must face her fiercest trial yet. Tyndale House Publishers
Why I'm Waiting:
This series has been a wonderful mix of Jane Austin and Charlotte Bronte. The characters are unique and the situations keep you guessing. I can't wait to see what happens in this final installment! So many questions to be answered.


What are you waiting on this week?

I hadn't heard of this series either. The book sounds good though, and I love the cover! Do you have to read the whole series, or will this work as a stand-alone?
Here's my WoW!

Sofia, It is very intriguing! :-)

Saaratis, All the covers in the series are beautiful and have the same feel. They work with the story.

Shane, Thanks for stopping by.

Kim, You definitely have to read them in order. There is a lot in the first book that happens and you are introduced to some pivotal characters. And each book builds on to the last. And each book you are able to watch characters grow and change. :-)

Ahhh! Still need to read the rest of this series - guess it's a "good thing" in a way; little wait between books 2 and 3 this way. ;)
