Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
My pick this week is Romancing The Throne by Nadine Jolie Courtney
For the first time ever, the Weston sisters are at the same boarding school. After an administration scandal at Libby’s all-girls school threatens her chances at a top university, she decides to join Charlotte at posh and picturesque Sussex Park. Social-climbing Charlotte considers it her sisterly duty to bring Libby into her circle: Britain’s young elites, glamorous teens who vacation in Hong Kong and the South of France and are just as comfortable at a polo match as they are at a party.I have always been fascinated by royalty. Particularly Anne Boleyn. This novel is said to be inspired in part by Anne and Mary Boleyn (as well as Kate and Pippa Middleton ... if Pippa were to have dated William first). This just sounds like a book I will love and I cannot wait to see how Nadine Jolie Courtney handles this topic! I am expecting romance, drama, and perhaps even some great fashion.
It’s a social circle that just so happens to include handsome 17-year-old Prince Edward, heir to Britain’s throne.
Charlotte’s had her eye on Edward, and soon they’re snogging all over the campus lawn and common rooms—while Libby busies herself with settling into her studies and navigating the complicated social code of Sussex Park. Eager to put her sister at ease, Charlotte encourages Libby to hang out with her new boyfriend. And much to everyone’s surprise, Libby and Edward hit it off.
Actually, they really hit it off.
In this juicy, contemporary girl-meets-prince story, two sisters find themselves at odds over the same boy amid high-society expectations and paparazzi scandals. In the end, there may be a price to pay for romancing the throne . . . and more than one path to happily ever after.
The wait for this one is going to be torture because it is not coming out until May of 2017.
Expected release date - May 30, 2017
