Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that bloggers are eagerly anticipating.
I have loved every one of Shinn’s books that I’ve read. EVERY ONE! I just found out last weekend that this book was due out early next year, and I’m flippin over the moon about it! AH!
Title & Author: The Shape of Desire by Sharon Shinn
Genre: Fantasy- Paranormal
Publication Date: April 3, 2012
Description: “For fifteen years Maria Devane has been desperately, passionately in love with Dante Romano. But despite loving him with all of her heart and soul, Maria knows that Dante can never give all of himself back—at least not all the time. Every month, Dante shifts shape, becoming a wild animal, and leaving Maria alone. Since the beginning, she has kept his secret, knowing that their love is worth the danger. But when a string of brutal attacks occur in local parks during the times when Dante is in animal form, Maria is forced to consider whether the lies she’s been telling about her life have become lies she’s also telling herself…”
Why I’m Stoked: After reading Shinn’s entire Thirteenth House series, I tried one of her older books, Archangel. I fell in love. Shinn is such a versatile writer- she’s gone from heavy fantasy to fantasy-lite with serious romance to now paranormal-ish romance. To say I’m excited about The Shape of Desire is a serious understatement.
If you’ve never read anything by Sharon Shinn, I’d start with on my all-time fave books- Mystic and Rider.
