Waiting on Wednesday (15): Black and White

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights the upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

The reason why I called it Black and White, well, obviously to their lovely covers. :]

Title: Crushed Seraphim
Author: Debra Anastasia
Release Date: May 17, 2011 [on Paperback] 
Publisher: Omnific Publishing
Summary

How does a foul-mouthed angel end up as the last hope for all of Heaven and Earth?

When Seraph Emma is maimed and tossed from Heaven by a rogue angel who’s taken charge, she fears she’ll never be allowed to return. Tasked with the impossible job of showing the self-loathing (and not even human!) Jason his worth, Emma is sure she’s doomed to fail.

Meanwhile, having wormed his way into Heaven, the corrupt Everett has trapped God in Hell and has designs on unleashing evil everywhere. Fortunately, if there’s one thing Emma can’t do (in addition to minding her language), it’s give up. Determined to save Jason and get back to Heaven—even if it means going to Hell—Emma’s plan is simple yet impossible: trick the Devil to save God.

What she doesn’t count on is the devotion and, well, humanity she finds in Jason; the spirit, hidden compassion, and raw sex appeal within the Devil; and the vulnerability of her own heart. With the help of two unlikely allies, she’ll wage the battle for Heaven. But will Emma be sidetracked by a new sort of heaven along the way?

What’s truly more dangerous? Falling from Heaven, or falling in love?

Debra Anastasia has twisted a fast-paced tale of intimate relationships with literally universal impact. Rich with humor and electrified by attraction, this novel offers a playfully off-beat take on the good and evil that make up the world.

Summary

Skye never questioned the story of her life. Her Aunt Jo adopted her after the death of her parents when she was just a child, and together they flip through memories the way some people flip through photo albums.

She never questioned if the stories were true.

Until the night of her 17th birthday, when the arrival of two strangers intrudes on her cozy life. Polar opposites, like fire and ice, Asher is dark and wild, while Devin is fair, cold, and aloof. Skye has no idea what they want—only that their presence coincides with the beginning of some shockingly strange events. Events that Skye, if she dares to think it, might be responsible for causing.

High up in the mountains of Boulder, Colorado, Skye finds herself caught in the middle of an ancient battle, one that began untold millennia ago. Torn between unpredictable Asher, whom she loves, and the infuriating Devin, who she can’t stay away from, her fate is murky as a starless night. And as the secrets of her true identity are revealed, Skye realizes that her destiny may reside in the Heavens—or somewhere darker.

Why waiting for Crushed Seraphim?
Of course! ANGEL? Hello? I am a angel-related fan and this one is pretty awesome! It has a long summary, yet it is still compelling! I can feel it in my bones that this would be a great read! *shrieks* Can't waiting for this! And we only have a few days to wait! *jumps for joy*

Why waiting for A Beautiful Dark
A very interesting read! And feels like it's a love triangle story! ohhhh... Well, I am not 100% sure if this is an angel-related book. Just read the word HEAVENS in the summary so I take it as it is. Anyway, I really like the cover! Awesome! Can't wait for this one! :D

So guys, what are the books you are currently waiting on? Don't be shy! Share it with me! Happy Reading! :D
