Waiting on Wednesday 6/22: The Dark Glamour

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

This week I choseThe Dark Glamour by Gabriella Pierce. I read an egalley of the first book in the series, 666 Park Avenue, in one sitting! The ending of 666 Park Avenue is a real cliffhanger, and some of the paranormal aspects are not explained. I’m hoping that The Dark Glamour will provide more of the backstory.

The Dark Glamour by Gabrielle Pierce
Expected publication: September 6th 2011 by HarperCollins Publishers

Jane Boyle married her prince charming and moved into his upper east side castle—but she didn’t get her fairy-tale ending.

It’s hard to live happily ever after when you discover your demanding and controlling mother-in-law is literally a witch, determined to steal the magical powers you didn’t even know you had. Jane narrowly avoided Lynne Doran’s clutches when she escaped on her wedding day, and has been hiding out in New York City. But she can’t hide forever.

When Jane learns of the one thing Lynne wants most, she sets out to provide it, hoping her good turn will persuade her mother-in-law to stop hunting her. Unfortunately, Jane’s daring plan will send her right back into the witches’ den—the Doran clan’s multistory town house on Park Avenue. But thanks to a tricky spell, blond architect Jane will be transformed into Ella, a dark beauty with a whole new look . . . and all of Jane’s budding powers. Though the stakes are life or death, nobody said “Ella” couldn’t have a little fun along the way, too.

What about you? What are you looking forward to this week?
