Wating on Wednesday # 1

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. The goal is to spotlight upcoming books that I am super excited for.
This week’s W.O.W. is The Outcasts by Kathleen Kent

Expected Publication: September 24, 2013
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company

A taut, thrilling adventure story about buried treasure, a manhunt, and a woman determined to make a new life for herself in the old west.

It's the 19th century on the GulfCoast, a time of opportunity and lawlessness. After escaping the Texas brothel where she'd been a virtual prisoner, Lucinda Carter heads for Middle Bayou to meet her lover, who has a plan to make them both rich, chasing rumors of a pirate's buried treasure.

Meanwhile Nate Cannon, a young Texas policeman with a pure heart and a strong sense of justice, is on the hunt for a ruthless killer named McGill who has claimed the lives of men, women, and even children across the frontier. Who--if anyone--will survive when their paths finally cross?

As Lucinda and Nate's stories converge, guns are drawn, debts are paid, and Kathleen Kent delivers an unforgettable portrait of a woman who will stop at nothing to make a new life for herself.

This book combines my love of historical fiction with adventure, and a mystery/thriller.

There is just something about this cover that I loved as soon as I saw it. I like the corset backing of the dress that the woman on the cover is wearing (I love corsets). And the fact that she is holding a gun behind her back makes me think straight away that something exciting and possibly nefarious might be going down.

So that's my W.o.W. What are you guys waiting for??
