Waiting on Wednesday #34



Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine and is where we can talk about books we are looking forward to being released!

Here are my picks for the week:



Notorious Nineteen (Stephanie Plum #19)
 
Summary:
 
After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie’s bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton’s premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it’s on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape . . . or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive. Since the hospital staff’s lips seem to be tighter than the security, and it’s hard for Stephanie to blend in to assisted living, Stephanie’s Grandma Mazur goes in undercover. But when a second felon goes missing from the same hospital, Stephanie is forced into working side by side with Trenton’s hottest cop, Joe Morelli, in order to crack the case.

The real problem is, no Cubbin also means no way to pay the rent. Desperate for money—or maybe just desperate—Stephanie accepts a secondary job guarding her secretive and mouthwatering mentor Ranger from a deadly Special Forces adversary. While Stephanie is notorious for finding trouble, she may have found a little more than she bargained for this time around. Then again—a little food poisoning, some threatening notes, and a bridesmaid’s dress with an excess of taffeta never killed anyone . . . or did they? If Stephanie Plum wants to bring in a paycheck, she’ll have to remember: No guts, no glory. . . .

Why I'm Waiting:
 
I've been a big fan of this series since I started reading them a couple years ago after some ladies recommended them to me in my favourite book group Fiction Fair on Goodreads. I've loved every book in the series and since I just finished Explosive Eighteen a few month ago I've been dying for Notorious Nineteen to come out. Luckily I only have to wait another month for it!
 
X Marks the Scot (Bad Boys of the Highlands, #2)
 
Summary:
 
He was a Highland rogue—
wicked with a bow and just as wicked with the ladies.


Declan MacGregor hadn’t a care in the world beyond finding a soft bed and willing woman…until he had to escort Lady Liadain Campbell to the English court. The woman needles him at every turn, but he can’t just abandon her to that vipers’ nest without protection.

She never asked for a bodyguard…

Liadain wasn’t thrilled to be left in the care of her clan’s archrival. It was as if the man never had a lady tell him no before! And yet as whispers of treason swirl through the court and the threat of danger grows ever sharper, her bitter enemy soon becomes the only one she can trust…

Why I'm Waiting:
 
This is the second book in Victoria Robert's Bad Boys of the Highlands series and I absolutely cannot wait to read the newest installment. I loved her first book in the series Temptation in a Kilt Reviewed Here. I hope I can score an ARC of this one like I did the last one because I realy want to read Liadain and Declan's story.
 
Now, what are YOU waiting for this Wednesday?
