"Waiting on" Wednesday #5: Crave by Monica Murphy & Desert Tales by Melissa Marr

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I am eagerly anticipating the release of Crave: A Billionaire Bachelors Club Series by Monica Murphy :D! 

Title: Crave (A Billionaire Bachelors Club Series #1)
Author: Monica Murphy

Series: A Billionaire Bachelors Club Series
Publisher: Avon Impulse
Publication Date: August 6, 2013

Description from Goodreads:

Billionaire Archer Bancroft always gets what he wants—and he’s wanted Ivy Emerson, his best friend’s sister, for far too long. Being forbidden and untouchable only makes her more tempting. When a million-dollar bet with his friends throws down a challenge—last bachelor standing takes all—Archer knows he can win. That is, until one enchanted evening with Ivy takes his heart for a ride.

Ivy knows Archer is nothing but bad news: Infuriating, arrogant…and completely intoxicating. But despite her best efforts, she can’t seem to keep away. When a stolen kiss leads to a night of heated passion, Ivy realizes she’s in trouble and in head over heels.

But in the light of day, everything seems clearer and Archer’s not so sure a one-night stand is all he wants. Concocting a plan to keep Ivy by his side, Archer might just be willing to lose this bet…and win the jackpot instead.

I read the excerpt that was released the same day of the cover reveal, and I added it to my TBR pile. If you have not read the excerpt you need to seriously need to do that, and add Crave to your TBR pile.


Title: Desert Tales
Author: Melissa Marr
Series: NA
Publisher: Harper Collins
Publication Date: October 8, 2013

Description from Goodreads:

Return to the world of Melissa Marr’s bestselling series and discover how the events of Wicked Lovely set a different faery tale in motion….

The Mojave Desert was a million miles away from the plots and schemes of the Faerie Courts—and that’s exactly why Rika chose it as her home. The once-mortal faery retreated to the desert’s isolation after decades of carrying winter’s curse inside her body. But her seclusion—and the freedom of the desert fey—are threatened by the Summer King’s newfound strength. And when the manipulations of her trickster friend, Sionnach, thrust Rika into a new romance, she finds new power within herself—and a new desire to help Sionnach protect the desert fey and mortals alike. The time for hiding is OVER.

Originally presented as a manga series, and now available for the first time as a standalone novel, Desert Tales combines tentative romance, outward strength, and inner resolve in a faery story of desert and destiny.

I loved the Wicked Lovely series, so I am pretty excited for this :D


What book are you eagerly anticipating this week?


  1. These sound good! I still need to try Melissa Marr's writing although I have heard great things about her Wicked Lovely series. :-)

  2. Your picks sound great! I had to add them to my TBR list! Thanks for sharing! =)

  3. Huh...I had no idea there was more to the Wicked Lovely series. I've had book 4 in my possession for FOREVER and just haven't read it yet! Going on two years now I think.

    My WOW

    1. I think Desert Tales is going to be a spin-off to the Wicked Lovely Series, because it is not listed as part of the Wicked Lovely Series.

  4. Hadn't heard of either of these. Great picks -- thanks so much for stopping by! Jen @ YA Romantics

  5. Great choices! I'm waiting for Dessert Tales too!

    Thanks for stopping by!
