Waiting on Venom by Fiona Paul

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights any upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Release date: October 30, 2012
Cassandra Caravello is one of Renaissance Venice’s lucky elite: with elegant gowns, sparkling jewels, her own lady’s maid, and a wealthy fiancé, she has everything a girl could desire. Yet ever since her parents’ death, Cassandra has felt trapped, alone in a city of water, where the dark and labyrinthine canals whisper of escape.

When Cass stumbles upon a murdered woman—practically in her own backyard—she’s drawn into a dangerous world of courtesans, killers, and secret societies. Soon, she finds herself falling for Falco, a mysterious artist with a mischievous grin... and a spectacular skill for trouble. Can Cassandra find the murderer, before he finds her? And will she stay true to her fiancé, or succumb to her uncontrollable feelings for Falco?

Beauty, love, romance, and mystery weave together in a stunning novel that’s as seductive and surprising as the city of Venice itself.

-Goodreads
This sounds absolutely fantastic! I'm all for a story taking place in Renaissance Venice, and I love the fact that this seems to blend so many different genres together.  I am not too psyched to read that there's a love triangle, however, but I guess I'll just hope that it's well-done and doesn't make me want to kick something. Because everything else in the synopsis sounds so promising.

What are you waiting on?

    1. And why not? The cover is so seductive. Like Katherine in that masquerade episode in The Vampire Diaries.

  6. I've seen this cover around, but I don't think I've ever taken the time to read the blurb. Renaissance Venice?! Murder and betrayal and forbidden romance - sign me up!

    Thanks for stopping by my WoW of The Beautiful and the Cursed by Page Morgan!
