Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by "Breaking the spine", where we showcase the books we can't wait to read.
My pick this week is "Blood on Silk" by Marie Treanor:
"Scottish academic Elizabeth Silk is spending the summer in Romania researching historical superstitions for her PhD. While she is tracing local foktales, one subject in particular sparks her imagination. His name is Saloman, legend's most powerful vampire, a seductive prince staked centuries ago. Now, in the ruins of a castle crypt, Elizabeth discovers the legends are real. Her blood has awakened him. Her innocence has aroused him. But Elizabeth unleashes more than Saloman's hunger. An army of vampire hunters has amassed to send Saloman back to hell. Sworn to help - yet fearing Saloman's deadly blood lust - Elizabeth seeks to entrap him, offering her body as bait. But something stronger than dread, more powerful than revenge, is uniting Elizabeth to her prey. Caught between desire and rage, Elizabeth must decide where her loyalties lie...and what the limits are to a yearning she can no longer control."

I am always keen to read new vampire novels. "Blood on Silk" is the first in the trilogy "Awakened by Blood". The book is due out this September. I think this sound like a thrilling read. And don't you just love the cover?
