Waiting On Wednesday: Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins

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

Title: Sweet Peril
Author: Wendy Higgins
Release Date: April 30, 2013
Synopsis: Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things. 

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?

What are you waiting on?

He loves me, he loves me not, he loves me

When your friends go missing and you don’t know if they’re dead or alive; when you tie your soul to the one you love; when you kill to protect and your family suffers, there’s only one thing you can do:

Move to Montana.

Farley Hope is special. She was prophesied to kill the forebears of her bloodline- a race of cold-blooded Reavers, men who steal the souls of the living to gain power. The Quorum had counted on Farley ending her own life in the process, but when Kayden came to her aid and helped save both her and Daniel, he undid their plans. Now the Quorum are displeased, not only with Kayden, but with Farley and Daniel too. Though her father is now dead, Farley’s troubles with the Reavers are far from over. An ancient Immortal, trapped for a thousand years, wants Farley for himself, and he will stop at nothing to claim her.

With secrets that lead to anger and pain, that turn friendship to dust, the group must overcome the problems within their own circle before they have a hope of fighting off the powers that threaten their lives.

In exchange for her loyalty and devotion, the King of the Titans will spare humanity and let Kate keep her child. Yet even if Kate agrees, he'll destroy Henry, her mother and the rest of the council. And if she refuses, Cronus will tear the world apart until every last god and mortal is dead.

Book Review: The Goddess Legacy by Aimee Carter

Title: The Goddess Legacy
Author: Aimée Carter
Publisher: HarlequinTEEN
Publication Date: July 31st 2012
Edition: Ebook
Source: Netgalley

Synopsis: For millennia we've caught only glimpses of the lives and loves of the gods and goddesses on Olympus. Now Aimée Carter pulls back the curtain on how they became the powerful, petty, loving and dangerous immortals that Kate Winters knows. 

Calliope/Hera represented constancy and yet had a husband who never matched her faithfulness...

Ava/Aphrodite was the goddess of love and yet commitment was a totally different deal...

Persephone was urged to marry one man, yet longed for another...

James/Hermes loved to make trouble for others-but never knew true loss before...

Henry/Hades's solitary existence had grown too wearisome to continue. But meeting Kate Winters gave him a new hope...

Five original novellas of love, loss and longing and the will to survive throughout the ages.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Review: I'm going to keep this review short and sweet because that is what these stories were. I loved them and Aimée Carter is one of my favorite authors. This was the perfect book to tide me over until The Goddess Inheritance comes out.My favorites had to be Henry/Hades's story and James/Hermes's story. I mean come on, who doesn't enjoy reading about an adorably troublemaker and a quiet, dark hero? 

The only downside that I had with these stories was that Ava/Aphrodite, Calliope/Hera and Persephone seemed really whiny to me. I get that Ava and Persephone going to sound a little bit like that, but I didn't expect that from Calliope. I couldn't feel any sympathy for Calliope, because it seems like everything bad that has happened to her was kind of her fault. Ava's lack of commitment kind of got to me, but I understand the whole Goddess of Love Can't Commit thing. Persephone...she just annoyed me. She was just...ugh... and her relationship with Adonis didn't seem all that healthy or good for anyone. 

Okay back to the good. The best thing about this book had to be the last part with Henry/Hades seeing Kate. I thought that it was so cute and I really enjoyed that part. I am also very, very sad that Tuck didn't make it. I think James/Hermes needed her and It was amazing what Henry/Hades did for him in the end. Tuck was my favorite of the new characters.

I recommend this SERIES to everyone that I know. I have loved Aimée Carter's series since the first one came out and I cannot wait until the next one comes out.
