Waiting on Wednesday: The Merchant's Daughter by Melanie Dickerson

The Merchant's Daughter by Melanie Dickerson (Published by Zondervan, November 29, 2011)

An unthinkable danger. An unexpected choice. Annabel, once the daughter of a wealthy merchant, is trapped in indentured servitude to Lord Ranulf, a recluse who is rumored to be both terrifying and beastly. Her circumstances are made even worse by the proximity of Lord Ranulf's bailiff---a revolting man who has made unwelcome advances on Annabel in the past. Believing that life in a nunnery is the best way to escape the escalation of the bailiff's vile behavior and to preserve the faith that sustains her, Annabel is surprised to discover a sense of security and joy in her encounters with Lord Ranulf. As Annabel struggles to confront her feelings, she is involved in a situation that could place Ranulf in grave danger. Ranulf's future, and possibly his heart, may rest in her hands, and Annabel must decide whether to follow the plans she has cherished or the calling God has placed on her heart.

I enjoyed Melanie Dickerson's first book, The Healer's Apprentice, so I am looking forward to reading her next book.

I've got this on my TBR list. I like that it is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I still haven't read The Healer's Apprentice although I have the Kindle ebook. Good pick!

I am totally psyched about this one! Read 'Healer's Apprentice' and *loved* it, and Beauty & the Beast is my favorite fairy tale, so I'm even *more* excited about this one! Eeek!
