Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The weekly event is meant to showcase eagerly anticipated upcoming releases…and to spread the word! This week I’m excited about:

Jenn BennettTitle: Bitter Spirits (Roaring Twenties #1)

Author: Jenn Bennett

Publisher: Berkley Sensation

Anticipated Publication Date: January 7th, 2014

 

It’s the roaring twenties, and San Francisco is a hotbed of illegal boozing, raw lust, and black magic. The fog-covered Bay Area can be an intoxicating scene, particularly when you specialize in spirits…

Aida Palmer performs a spirit medium show onstage at Chinatown’s illustrious Gris-Gris speakeasy. However, her ability to summon (and expel) the dead is more than just an act.

Winter Magnusson is a notorious bootlegger who’s more comfortable with guns than ghosts—unfortunately for him, he’s the recent target of a malevolent hex that renders him a magnet for hauntings. After Aida’s supernatural assistance is enlisted to banish the ghosts, her spirit-chilled aura heats up as the charming bootlegger casts a different sort of spell on her…

On the hunt for the curseworker responsible for the hex, Aida and Winter become drunk on passion. And the closer they become, the more they realize they have ghosts of their own to exorcise…

Take a deep breath, people – Jenn Bennett is writing a new series! The tag line for this one is amazing: “There’s a big curse in little Chinatown, and it’s not prohibition.” Bennett’s snappy dialogue and brilliant world-building coupled with prohibition era San Francisco? Bring it on, baby!
