Waiting on Wednesday #24: The Fairest Beauty

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're
eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Fairest Beauty by Melanie Dickerson
Zondervan-December 25, 2012

About the Book
A daring rescue. A difficult choice.
Sophie desperately wants to get away from her stepmother's jealousy, and believes escape is her only chance to be happy. Then a young man named Gabe arrives from Hagenheim Castle, claiming she is betrothed to his older brother, and everything twists upside down. This could be Sophie's one chance at freedom—but can she trust another person to keep her safe?
Gabe defied his parents Rose and Wilhelm by going to find Sophie, and now he believes they had a right to worry: the girl's inner and outer beauty has enchanted him. Though romance is impossible—she is his brother's future wife, and Gabe himself is betrothed to someone else—he promises himself he will see the mission through, no matter what.
When the pair flee to the Cottage of the Seven, they find help—but also find their feelings for each other have grown. Now both must not only protect each other from the dangers around them—they must also protect their hearts

Why I Want It
Well I have absolutely loved Melanie's first two novels (both also fairy-tale re-tellings), so it's no surprise that I'm anxious to read this new book of hers. I will admit that I used to hate Snow White, thanks to Disney, but after watching ABC's Once Upon A Time she is really growing on me. I can't wait to see what Melanie Dickerson does with story! 
P.S. Isn't that cover awesome?!

This sounds SO good and is already on my TBR list. I haven't read anything by this author before and need to read the others first though. Good pick. Happy reading.
