Waiting On Wednesday #26: The Fairest Beauty by Melanie Dickerson


"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly meme hosted by  Breaking the Spine. 
This is were we get to 'spotlight' books that we are anxiously waiting to be released! The ones that we are dying to get our hands on and read into the wee hours of the night and, quite possibly, to make our shelves look all pretty too :)

What I'm waiting on... 

by Melanie Dickerson
Expected publication date: December 24th, 2012 

SUMMARY

A daring rescue. A difficult choice. Sophie desperately wants to get away from her stepmother's jealousy, and believes escape is her only chance to be happy. Then a young man named Gabe arrives from Hagenheim Castle, claiming she is betrothed to his older brother, and everything twists upside down. This could be Sophie's one chance at freedom---but can she trust another person to keep her safe? Gabe defied his parents Rose and Wilhelm by going to find Sophie, and now he believes they had a right to worry: the girl's inner and outer beauty has enchanted him. Though romance is impossible---she is his brother's future wife, and Gabe himself is betrothed to someone else---he promises himself he will see the mission through, no matter what. When the pair flee to the Cottage of the Seven, they find help---but also find their feelings for each other have grown. Now both must not only protect each other from the dangers around them---they must also protect their hearts.




BOOK TRAILER


Why I'm waiting on The Fairest Beauty...

BECAUSE I love fairytale retellings, of course :)
And the cover is lovely!

And from the summary, how has this Gabe guy 'defied' his parents by finding Sophie?
And why would HE find her for his brother???

Can't wait to find out!

What are you waiting on this week???
