Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we’re eagerly awaiting.  I’ve chosen a book this week that is a sequel to a book I read as part of a blog tour and absolutely fell in love with it.  The first book was called Forbidden, and you can read my review of it HERE.   Here’s the blurb for this second book, Banished, from Goodreads:

She thought she’d lost everything . . .

After spending months traveling the harsh, unforgiving Mesopotamian desert, Jayden reunites with a broken, injured Kadesh. Although everyone was convinced the violent and unpredictable Horeb, Jayden’s betrothed, killed the handsome prince, Jayden knew in her heart that her love was alive and safe. But their reunion is short-lived, as they learn Horeb is on their trail and determined to take back the girl he has claimed. Soon, the two star-crossed lovers are on the run toward Sariba, Kadesh’s homeland, where, as heir to the Kingdom, he plans to make Jayden his princess.

But the trek to Sariba is fraught with heartache and danger. After narrowly escaping being stoned to death for a crime she didn’t commit, and learning that her sister has disappeared, Jayden’s only solace is her love for Kadesh. But even he is keeping secrets from her . . . secrets that will change everything.

This gorgeous and enchanting sequel to Forbidden, is full of love, danger, and heated passion that will leave readers breathless.

The description leaves me very breathless! Can’t wait to read it, don’t know if I can wait clear till 2016.  

So, what book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

  1. I wanted to read Forbidden so bad last year but I never got to it. I still want to read it really bad! I just love the covers of these books, too. It seems like I have a little time to get to it. At least I won't have to wait as long for the sequel! Great pick!

  2. I haven't heard of this one before… Sounds like a cool concept and the covers for both books are beautiful. Maybe I'll pick the first one up when the second one is about to come out!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Makes me wish I had already read Forbidden. I think the covers are really pretty and it's a plus that they coordinate. Hope you enjoy it when it arrives!

  4. Ohh great pick the synopsis of Forbidden have really intrigued and peeked my intrest when I first heard about it and now reading the synopsis of the second books makes me really want to read it. I will most definitely check it out of the library the next time I go there. Thank you for stopping by my blog! 🙂

  5. I actually haven't read the first one! But it's encouraging to see you praise it so highly. And the synopsis for the sequel sounds so epic!

  6. I have been eyeing Forbidden for a while, but I haven't gotten the chance to read it! Banished has an equally pretty cover and I'm being strongly tempted to start Forbidden right away now. 🙂

  7. I've got this one on my radar too! I just read Forbidden within the last month and I enjoyed it more than I expected too. I actually ALMOST picked this one for my WOW this week, but I haven't posted my review of Forbidden yet. Great pick!

    I loved book 1 and I can't wait for this one either. It will be a very torturous book I think! 😀

  9. Oh, the plot of this book sounds absolutely AMAZING! I love how the author has planned out the events, and also the characters themselves. The setting is exotic, and that's another plus. GREAT choice! So I'm heading right on over to Goodreads to add this one to my TBR!

    Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my WOW!! Happy Reading!! : )

  10. Hi – It does sound intriguing. 2016 is still several months away; sorry for your wait time. Hopefully, it will be worth it. 🙂
