Waiting on Wednesday (105)


This week I'm waiting for...
The Jewel
Release Date: September 2, 2014
The Jewel means wealth. The Jewel means beauty. The Jewel means royalty. But for girls like Violet, the Jewel means servitude. Not just any kind of servitude. Violet, born and raised in the Marsh, has been trained as a surrogate for the royalty––because in the Jewel the only thing more important than opulence is offspring.

Purchased at the surrogacy auction by the Duchess of the Lake and greeted with a slap to the face, Violet (now known only as #197) quickly learns of the brutal truths that lie beneath the Jewel’s glittering facade: the cruelty, backstabbing, and hidden violence that have become the royal way of life.

Violet must accept the ugly realities of her existence . . . and try to stay alive. But then a forbidden romance erupts between Violet and a handsome gentleman hired as a companion to the Duchess’s petulant niece. Though his presence makes life in the Jewel a bit brighter, the consequences of their illicit relationship will cost them both more than they bargained for.

I've missed the covers with girls in dresses on the front! I remember they were booming in 2012, it's good to see that they can still come up with good ideas for the girl in a dress. Anyway, apart from this looking very pretty, the blurb sounds very interesting! It's some kind of corruption story with a forbidden romance. It's just my cup of tea.
Leave a link to your WoW post in the comments below so I can check it out!

Have a good week,
Sam :D
