Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I'm waiting on:
Title: The Black Wolf
Author: J.A. Redmerski
Series: In The Company of Killers #5
Genres: NA, Contemporary, Romance
Publication: Published 2015
Since devastating secrets were uncovered by Nora Kessler weeks ago, Niklas has wanted nothing to do with Victor. However, despite his anger, he agrees to go on a mission to Italy after Izabel convinces him that his involvement is not only important, but mandatory—Victor refuses to allow Izabel’s participation if Niklas does not join her. But there is more to Niklas’ decision to lead this mission than just aiding Izabel—he sees it as an opportunity to set in motion either forgiveness, or retribution, for his brother’s betrayal.
The mission to Italy to kidnap a beautiful, notorious madam named Francesca Moretti, isn’t too different from what Niklas has done in the past: play a role on the inside and play it well, or die. But this time he won’t be alone and the risks much higher: Izabel, still fresh out of a life of imprisonment and sex slavery, could be negatively affected by the things she will see in Moretti’s mansion. Niklas must keep her in line, while at the same time, play the role of a wealthy German investor visiting Moretti’s estate to purchase for himself a new slave—the daughter of Victor’s client—and free her from captivity.
But Niklas isn’t the only one who must play a role—Nora goes as Niklas’ slave, and Izabel must play the role of his lover.
While Izabel fights to prove that she can pull this mission off regardless of the things she’ll be forced to see—and do—a volatile sexual relationship begins to burn between Niklas and Nora. And an even more dangerous one between Niklas and Francesca Moretti.
On one hand, Niklas couldn’t be enjoying himself more. On the other hand, the emotions that continue to stir inside of him may be too much for him to control, and it may be him—not Izabel—who needs to be kept in line. He cannot forget what Victor has done. And this mission may just be the beginning of Niklas’ downward spiral.
Can the blood bond Niklas and Victor share as brothers be stronger than hatred? Or will vengeance dig the blade so deep that their bond be eternally severed?
There is no cover for this book yet, and no set publication date, which is driving me crazy because this is one of my top favorite series and I'm always holding my breath while waiting for the next book because I know it will blow my mind. And this is Niklas' book *flails*. I NEED THIS BOOK NOW!
What are you waiting on?
