Waiting On Wednesday - May 5, 2010

Waiting On Wednesday

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
Release Date : June 8, 2010
Description from Amazon
When a stranger offers her a small fortune to break into a traveling magician’s wagon, Kim doesn’t hesitate. Having grown up a waif in the dirty streets of London, Kim isn’t above a bit of breaking-and-entering. A hard life and lean times have schooled her in one lesson: steal from them before they steal from you. But when the magician catches her in the act, Kim thinks she’s done for. Until he suggests she become his apprentice; then the real trouble begins.

Kim soon finds herself entangled with murderers, thieves, and cloak-and-dagger politics, all while trying to learn how to become both a proper lady and a magician in her own right. Magic and intrigue go hand in hand in Mairelon the Magician and The Magician’s Ward, two fast-paced novels filled with mystery and romance, set against the intricate backdrop of Regency England. 
The first thing that caught my eye was this cover!  It's gorgeous :)  Love that glowing ball, and her outfit is just stunning!  Then, you read the synopsis, and boom..who can resist magicians, thieves, and murderers?!  Sounds like a great combo to me...
