I am waiting on:
Title: Deception's Princess
Author: Esther Friesner
Series: Deception's Princess #1
Publisher: Random House
Publication Date: April 22, 2014
Some lies lead to true adventure. . . .
Maeve, princess of Connacht, was born with her fists clenched. And it's her spirit and courage that make Maeve her father's favorite daughter. But once he becomes the High King, powerful men begin to circle--it's easy to love the girl who brings her husband a kingdom.
Yet Maeve is more than a prize to be won, and she's determined to win the right to decide her own fate. In the court's deadly game of intrigue, she uses her wits to keep her father's friends and enemies close--but not too close. When she strikes up an unlikely friendship with the son of a visiting druid, Maeve faces a brutal decision between her loyalty to her family and to her own heart.
Award-winning author Esther Friesner has a remarkable gift for combining exciting myth and richly researched history. This fiery heroine's fight for independence in first-century Ireland is truly worthy of a bard's tale. Hand Deception's Princess to fans of Tamora Pierce, Shannon Hale, and Malinda Lo.
Why am I waiting?
When this one caught my attention it was because I love the cover, but after reading the descprition I realized it had been months since I have read a good historical romance. I am also like a powerful female lead especially in settings and times that do not approve of strong women. I am definatly adding this one to my ever growing reading list.
What are you waiting on?
