Waiting on Wednesday: Darker Still and Psychic Moon

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine which spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases!

Once again, I have two very different books I'm waiting on this week. Both are by authors I've never read before and both are paranormal. One, however, is a male/male romance and the other is a YA historical.

Darker Still Cover Title: Darker Still
Series: Magic Most Foul, Book 1
Author: Leanna Renee Hieber
Genre: YA Paranormal Historical
Publisher: Sourcebooks Fire
Release Date: November 1, 2011

Book Description (from

The Picture of Dorian Gray meets Pride and Prejudice, with a dash of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.

New York City, 1882. Seventeen-year-old Natalie Stewart's latest obsession is a painting of the handsome British Lord Denbury. Something in his striking blue eyes calls to her. As his incredibly life-like gaze seems to follow her, Natalie gets the uneasy feeling that details of the painting keep changing...

Jonathan Denbury's soul is trapped in the gilded painting by dark magic while his possessed body commits unspeakable crimes in the city slums. He must lure Natalie into the painting, for only together can they reverse the curse and free his damaged soul.

Psychic Moon Cover Title: Psychic Moon
Author: M.D. Grimm
Genre: Male/Male Paranormal Romance
Publishers: Dreamspinner Press
Release Date: July 27, 2011

Book Description (from Dreamspinner Press):

Humane Officer Derek Wiliams has been toying with the idea of asking out Brian O’Donogue since the veterinarian started working at the Pet Rescue Center two years ago. So why hasn’t he made his move? It’s complicated… but it has something to do with the fact that Derek occasionally likes to run around on four legs instead of two.

Recovering from an abusive relationship and hiding supernatural abilities of his own, Brian takes a chance and agrees to go on a date with Derek. The ensuing relationship is better than either of them could have hoped—until a rogue wolf shifter attacks Brian while he’s walking his dogs. The abrupt attack forces Derek to confront his feelings, but the danger isn’t over. The rogue shifter is out there, and he’s hunting them.

Darker Sin sounds really interesting. I enjoyed reading Pride and Prejudice and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, so it'll be interesting to read a book that contains similar themes and elements!
