WOW: Courtship and Curses by Marissa Doyle

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
Courtship and Curses 
by Marissa Doyle
Release Date: Aug. 7, 2012

Book Jacket Summary
Sophie’s entrance into London society isn’t what she thought it would be: Mama isn’t there to guide her, Papa is buried in his work fighting Napoleon, and Sophie’s newly acquired limp keeps her from dancing at any of those glittering balls. If it weren’t for her shopping escapades with her new French friend Amélie and a flirtation with the dashing Lord Woodbridge, she would think this season a complete disaster.
But when someone uses magic to attack Papa the night of Sophie’s first ball, her problems escalate, especially when it becomes clear that all the members of the War Cabinet are being targeted. Can she catch the culprit and keep her own magic powers hidden long enough to win herself a match?

I am a big fan of the magic and Regency era combination! This book looks like it will be a lot like Doyle's Bewitching Season, which I really liked. Looking forward to this one's release. Cannot come soon enough!



  1. I've read Marissa Doyle's Bewitching Season and Betraying Season books, and they were awesome! :) This book reminds me so much of those books, like you said, and I'm not too big on the magic and Regency stuff, but I definitely enjoyed Marissa's previous books.
