Waiting on Wednesday - Persuasion (The Heirs of Watson Island #2) by Martina Boone

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine where we spotlight upcoming releases that we're eagerly awaiting.  I was so excited earlier this month when they released the cover for this one. I immediately went and added this to the next open WOW spot on my calendar.  I got an ARC of the first book, Compulsion, at BEA last summer, and loved it.  Here is the blurb, and the pretty, pretty cover for the sequel from Goodreads:

Grieving the death of her godfather and haunted by her cousin Cassie’s betrayal, Barrie returns from a trip to San Francisco to find the Watson plantation besieged by reporters and ghost-hunters. Some are hoping to see the ancient spirit who sets the river on fire each night, while others are chasing rumors of a stolen shipment of Civil War gold that may be hidden at Colesworth Place. Chaos descends as Cassie hires a team of archeologists to excavate beneath the mansion ruins. But more is buried there than treasure.

A mysterious, magical man appears at Watson’s Landing, claiming the key to the Watson and Beaufort gifts and the Colesworth curse also lies beneath the mansion. With a mix of threats and promises, he engages Barrie and Cassie in a midnight visit, but the spell he conjurs has potentially deadly consequences.

While Barrie and dreamy Eight Beaufort struggle to make sense of the escalating danger and their growing feelings for each other, Barrie has to figure out not only whom to trust, but which gift is more reliable—Eight’s or her own. With millions of dollars and the fate of the founding families at stake, she must choose between what she feels deep in her heart and what will keep her loved ones safe.


I'm so excited to read on in this world.  I love Eight, he's such a good book boyfriend!!  So, what book are you eagerly awaiting this week?

    1. I totally loved Eight! Can't wait to read on. I've been constantly entering contests for an ARC of this since I had an ARC of Compulsion. I'd like to have a matching set. :-)
