"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly event courtesy of Breaking the Spine that showcases much anticipated upcoming releases.
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.
Although there's not a lot of synopsis here, anything Oscar Wilde and anything vaguely relating to Pride and Prejudice has me on alert. I know they're big comparisons, but I'm curious to see how this one turns out. And I love the color play on the cover with her dress alternating between gold and purple, meshing with the wallpaper and frame. And set in here in New York? Okay, I want to know about these characters already.
