So this week's Waiting on Wednesday was hard for me to choose. I didn't know whether to include it or not because for me this book is actually already out. It released here in the UK on September 26th... but it isn't released in the US until May 2014 so I thought what the heck I'll feature it anyway.

Heiress. Debutant. Murderer. A new generation of heroines has arrived.
Edinburgh, Scotland, 1844
Lady Aileana Kameron, the only daughter of the Marquess of Douglas, was destined for a life carefully planned around Edinburgh’s social events – right up until a faery killed her mother.
Now it’s the 1844 winter season and Aileana slaughters faeries in secret, in between the endless round of parties, tea and balls. Armed with modified percussion pistols and explosives, she sheds her aristocratic facade every night to go hunting. She’s determined to track down the faery who murdered her mother, and to destroy any who prey on humans in the city’s many dark alleyways.
But the balance between high society and her private war is a delicate one, and as the fae infiltrate the ballroom and Aileana’s father returns home, she has decisions to make. How much is she willing to lose – and just how far will Aileana go for revenge?
As soon as I saw the cover for this book I needed it... like RIGHT NOW! And then my favourite author of all time, Jennifer L Armentrout, posted that she loved this book. I instantly knew it was going to be awesome. At the time of scheduling this post (Sep 20th) I am still dying to read it but when it goes live I will own the book *happy dance* Counting down the days to get my hands on it.
What do you think?
