Waiting on Wednesday (56)


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating. So here's a thing I'm looking forward to: The House of the Four Winds, by Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory (5 August 2014).


The rulers of tiny, impoverished Swansgaard have twelve daughters and one son. While the prince's future is assured, his twelve sisters must find their own fortunes.

Disguising herself as Clarence, a sailor, Princess Clarice intends to work her way to the New World. When the crew rebels, Clarice/Clarence, an expert wth rapier and dagger, sides with the handsome navigator, Dominick, and kills the cruel captain.

Dominick leads the now-outlawed crew in search of treasure in the secret pirate haven known as The House of Four Winds. They encounter the sorceress Shamal, who claims Dominick for her own - but Clarice has fallen hard for Dominick and won't give him up without a fight.

To be honest, the pirate girl on the cover would probably have caught my eye even if I wasn't already familiar with (and a fan of) the authors. Add to that the fact that I would be interested in anything by these two authors, whose previous work together has all been good, and I'm pretty much guaranteed to pick this up.
