Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. The purpose is to discuss books we can’t wait to get our hands on. As readers, there are always books that we want to read that haven’t been released yet. Whether they are sequels to much-loved books or debut novels we are excited to add to our TBR and read, there is always something shiny and new on the horizon. Today is Waiting On Wednesday #13, showcasing the book I am eagerly awaiting to release.

Title: The Boleyn Reckoning (The Boleyn Trilogy #3)

Author: Laura Andersen

Expected Publication Date: July 15, 2014

Hardcover, 416

Synopsis:

Elizabeth Tudor is at a crossroads. After a disastrous winter, the Duke of Northumberland has been executed for treason while his son, Robert Dudley, claims from the Tower that the true traitor has not yet been caught. And though her brother, William, has survived smallpox, scars linger in the king’s body and mind and his patience is at an end. As English ships and soldiers arm themselves against the threat of invasion, William marches to the drumbeat of his own desires rather than his country’s welfare. Wary of this changed royal brother, Elizabeth assembles her own shadow court to protect England as best she can. But William, able to command armies and navies, cannot command hearts. Minuette and Dominic have married in secret, and after an ill-timed pregnancy, they take to flight. Faced with betrayal by the two he loved most, William’s need for vengeance pushes England to the brink of civil war and in the end, Elizabeth must choose: her brother, or her country.
