Waiting on Wednesday-- The Princess and the Bear

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of reading The Princess and the Hound, by Mette Ivie Harrison. It was a pleasure, except (spoiler alert) I had one considerable complaint. As I wrote in an earlier post, "I think that when an author expects me to invest in getting to know a character (Princess Beatrice) it is not fair to turn her back into the hound she really was and send her off into an unnatural relationship with a bear."

Now we get to find out what happens with Beatrice and the Bear! I am very curious. How much of her hound self will Beatrice retain in human form? How much Bear will the Bear still have now that he is human?

The Princess and the Bearcomes out on April 28, 2009. Here's what the blurb on Amazon says:

"He was once a king, turned into a bear as punishment for his cruel and selfish deeds.

She was a once a princess, now living in the form of a hound.

Wary companions, they are sent—in human form—back to a time when magic went terribly astray. Together they must right the wrongs caused by this devastating power—if only they can find a way to trust each other.

But even as each becomes aware of an ever-growing attraction, the stakes are rising and they must find a way to eliminate this evil force—or risk losing each other forever."

Waiting on Wednesday, in the words of Reviewer X, is a community book lusting effort started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.
