*Waiting on Wednesday* Featuring House of the Rising Sun (Crescent City # 1 by Kristen Painter!

"Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at “Breaking the Spine”, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating....

This weeks choice is House of the Rising Sun (Crescent City # 1 by Kristen Painter!

Kristen is the author of  the House of Comarre series, and I can't wait to see what she does with this series. Her world building and characters are always interesting and this time around we go to New Orleans! WOOT!

Augustine lives the perfect life in the Haven city of New Orleans. He rarely works a real job, spends most of his nights with a different human woman, and resides in a spectacular Garden District mansion paid for by retired movie star Olivia Goodwin, who has come to think of him as an adopted son, providing him room and board and whatever else he needs. 

But when Augustine returns home to find Olivia's been attacked by vampires, he knows his idyllic life has comes to an end. It's time for revenge—and to take up the mantle of the city's Guardian.(less)
