WAITING ON WEDNESDAY #2
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly blog feature hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights future releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
Lol after months, here’s the second post, just because I could not help posting about this book…
A CASE OF POSSESSION (A CHARM OF MAGPIES #2)
Magic in the blood. Danger in the streets.
Lord Crane has never had a lover quite as elusive as Stephen Day. True, Stephen’s job as justiciar requires secrecy, but the magician’s disappearing act bothers Crane more than it should. When a blackmailer threatens to expose their illicit relationship, Crane knows a smart man would hop the first ship bound for China. But something unexpectedly stops him. His heart.
Stephen has problems of his own. As he investigates a plague of giant rats sweeping London, his sudden increase in power, boosted by his blood-and-sex bond with Crane, is rousing suspicion that he’s turned warlock. With all eyes watching him, the threat of exposure grows. Stephen could lose his friends, his job and his liberty over his relationship with Crane. He’s not sure if he can take that risk much longer. And Crane isn’t sure if he can ask him to.
The rats are closing in, and something has to give…
Warning: Contains m/m sex (on desks), blackmail, dark pasts, a domineering earl, a magician on the edge, vampire ghosts (possibly), and the giant rats of Sumatra.
I think it should be obvious that I was mostly hooked by that last paragraph ;D
I liked the first book cover better, it was more well designed, and attractive. But whatever, hot Lord Crane was still on display along with the perfect depiction of Stephen, the one I had in mind
