Waiting on Wednesday: Destiny by Carly Phillips

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

I adored the first Serendipity series book, Serendipity - it was a delightful contemporary romance. Nash wasn't my favorite character in Serendipity (mostly because I grew protective of Ethan, the hero of Serendipity), so I'm eager to see how Ms. Phillips makes me fall for him in Destiny.

Destiny Cover Title: Destiny
Series: Serendipity, Book 2
Author: Carly Phillips
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publisher: Berkley
Release Date: January 3, 2012

Book Description (from Carly Phillips's website):

Nash Barron may be cynical about love, yet even he likes a good wedding. But the only good thing about his brother’s wedding is Kelly Moss. Nash can’t help but admire her confidence and beauty, but he’s forced to keep his distance because getting involved with Kelly could destroy his relationship with his newly discovered half sister, Tess...

Kelly came to Serendipity to give Tess–her half sibling as well, thanks to an illicit affair–a second chance at life. She learned long ago not to rely on anyone but herself. Besides, she doesn’t want to upset Tess’s life by pushing for a fling with Nash. Except the more she gets to know him, the more vulnerable she becomes to the kindness beneath his gruff exterior, and the less she’s able to stay away. But she has other reasons for keeping her distance. Like the secret from her past she knows Nash will never forgive...

This sounds interesting and a tad scandalous! I love a good book with tons of romantic tension. Great choice. Thanks for stopping by my blog. (And I strongly encourage you to read The Mortal Instruments -- you won't regret it.)

Aw, man, I love these kinds of romance series. Misunderstandings galore. Unwanted attraction. Cynical sexy men. Oh, boy.

Have an amazing reading week!
