Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally, they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine. If you’re continuing with WOW, feel free to link those up as well! Find out more here.
Do you prefer stand alone novels or series? I read both but series are wonderful because you get to re-visit some fictional people and places. I also have no problem reading one book in a series and then waiting up to a year for the next book. My sister-in-law is one of those strange people who has to have every book in a series in her hands before she’ll read it, though. Which type of series reader are you?
And that brings me to this book I’m looking forward to come April! The second in The Sugar Baron’s Daughters series by Lisa T. Bergren.
After leaving England behind for a new life in the West Indies with her sisters, Verity Banning wants something to call her own. Her affinity for animals inspires her to set up a business importing horses, as well as other goods in demand by the island residents. But when she arrives in the Colonies to purchase her goods, unexpected news of Captain Duncan McKintrick awaits her–as does the captain’s handsome brother, Ian–whose sympathies lie with the fledgling Patriot cause.
As the great-granddaughter of a British general and friend to many Loyalists, Verity believed all she wanted was a peaceful resolution. But both the Patriots and the impassioned Ian McKintrick are steadily laying claim to her heart. When faced with the decision of what–and for whom–she will fight, can she set her feet on a new path despite the danger that awaits?

I’m definitely with you on the standalone/series debate. I love standalones that tell a complete story but all enjoy series where you really get to know the characters and world. If I get into a series once a few have been released I might try to read those back-to-back, but I don’t have anywhere near the patience to wait until a series is finished before starting an anticipated first book!
My CWW & WWW this week.

I like the animal aspect and have a blogging friend who loves horses so I’ll have to point this one out to her. Lovely cover as well.
That cover is stunning!
I prefer to have most of the books in a series when I start it. Otherwise, I tend to read the first one and lost interest after that.

I love this publishers covers, they always deliver!
