On My Wishlist # 9

Photobucket

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where I list all the books I desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming. It's also an event that you can join in with too.


This week I have a mixed bag of things I am wishing for: I have been wanting to read Retells for awhile so I picked two books by the same author whom is doing a retell of two of my favorite Fairy Tales, Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast. My third choice is an anthology and main reason I want this book it has Gena Showalter in it- I have heard the other authors are good so I figured why not give it a try.

A Kiss At Midnight by Eloisa James

Amazon

Mass Market Paperback: 384 pages
Publisher: Avon (July 27, 2010)

Goodreads Summary:
Miss Kate Daltry doesn't believe in fairy tales . . . or happily ever after.

Forced by her stepmother to attend a ball, Kate meets a prince . . . and decides he's anything but charming. A clash of wits and wills ensues, but they both know their irresistible attraction will lead nowhere. For Gabriel is promised to another woman—a princess whose hand in marriage will fulfill his ruthless ambitions.

Gabriel likes his fiancÉe, which is a welcome turn of events, but he doesn't love her. Obviously, he should be wooing his bride-to-be, not the witty, impoverished beauty who refuses to fawn over him.

Godmothers and glass slippers notwithstanding, this is one fairy tale in which destiny conspires to destroy any chance that Kate and Gabriel might have a happily ever after.

Unless a prince throws away everything that makes him noble . . .

Unless a dowry of an unruly heart trumps a fortune . . .

Unless one kiss at the stroke of midnight changes everything.

Goodreads Summary:
Miss Linnet Berry Thrynne is a Beauty . . . Naturally, she's betrothed to a Beast.

Piers Yelverton, Earl of Marchant, lives in a castle in Wales where, it is rumored, his bad temper flays everyone he crosses. And rumor also has it that a wound has left the earl immune to the charms of any woman.

Linnet is not just any woman.

She is more than merely lovely: her wit and charm brought a prince to his knees. She estimates the earl will fall madly in love—in just two weeks.

Yet Linnet has no idea of the danger posed to her own heart by a man who may never love her in return.

If she decides to be very wicked indeed . . . what price will she pay for taming his wild heart?

I saw these on Lori's site and I couldn't resist I hadn't known retells existed til I started blogging and now they have peeked my interest I can't wait for these because they are historical as well.

OH anything with Gena I have to get though I haven't read her YA or Alien Huntress series yet.
