327/365: Waiting on Wednesday 4

I actually didn’t really have a book planned for Waiting on Wednesdays (weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine) this week, but after visiting the Harper Collins office yesterday for the Peter James fish ‘n chips party, I was teased with a beautiful book that I was completely enthralled with.

Gorgeous cover (even more gorgeous in person!) and an interesting story. I’m hooked!

Masque of the Red Death
by Bethany Griffin

From Goodreads:
Everything is in ruins.

A devastating plague has decimated the population. And those who are left live in fear of catching it as the city crumbles to pieces around them.

So what does Araby Worth have to live for?

Nights in the Debauchery Club, beautiful dresses, glittery make-up . . . and tantalizing ways to forget it all.

But in the depths of the club—in the depths of her own despair—Araby will find more than oblivion. She will find Will, the terribly handsome proprietor of the club. And Elliott, the wickedly smart aristocrat. Neither boy is what he seems. Both have secrets. Everyone does.

And Araby may find something not just to live for, but to fight for—no matter what it costs her.

Masque of the Red Death is available April 24th, 2012 (3 days before my birthday!) 😎
