12:00 PM

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine spotlighting upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating.

Publisher: Tor Teen
Release Date: September 14, 2010

Summary (from Goodreads):

Frannie Cavanaugh is a good Catholic girl with a bit of a wicked streak. She's spent years keeping everyone at a distance—even her closest friends—and it seems her senior year will be more of the same...until Luc Cain enrolls in her class. No one knows where he came from, but Frannie can't seem to stay away from him. What she doesn't know is that Luc works in Acquisitions—for Hell—and she possesses a unique skill set that has the King of Hell tingling with anticipation. All Luc has to do is get her to sin, and he’s as tempting as they come. Frannie doesn’t stand a chance.

Unfortunately for Luc, Heaven has other plans, and the angel, Gabe, is going to do whatever it takes to make sure that Luc doesn’t get what he came for. And it isn't long before they find themselves fighting for more than just her soul.

But if Luc fails, there will be Hell to pay…for all of them.

Personal Demons is the first in a new trilogy and doesn't it sound so good? I can't wait to read it!

And did you know that cover artist Cliff Nielsen, who's also done Cassandra Clare's novels, had a hand in this one too? I'll just refer you back to Lisa Desrochers blog post when she revealed the cover back in early July.

And by the way, Lisa Desrochers is also currently holding an August Debut Contest where you can enter to win a signed Personal Demons ARC or if that doesn't float your boat, a choice of one of the following: Freak Observer by Blythe Woolston, Nevermore by Kelly Creagh, Wildfire Run by Dee Garretson, or Paranormalcy by Kiersten White.

  1. I have been dying to read this too! It sounds so good! But, I have to say, I am not a huge fan of the cover. I liked the earlier covers better, this one looks a little cheesy to me :( But I am excited nonetheless!

  2. The cover models are hot but look a little too old for me. Nice pick though, I'm looking forward to this one too.

  3. Great pick! I'm eagerly awaiting this one as well! I'm really into the angels and demons thing lately. I didn't know that it was the same artist as Cassandra Clare's covers - I LOVE her covers, they're so stunning! That's really neat =)

    I'm stopping by on the Hop & really like the looks of your site! I'm your newest follower =) Happy Friday!
