Can’t Wait Wednesday #1

Posted November 24, 2021 by Marsha in Can't Wait Wednesday, Discussion, Weekly Events / 2 Comments

As a life-long avid reader, there is not much that can get my anticipation rising quicker than knowing a favorite author has a new book releasing soon.  Admittedly, here at Happily Ever After Romance, I focus on Romance, in particular Harlequin (or Harlequin-styled) Romance stories.  So when I went searching for weekly events or memes within the Romance Reading Community I knew that I’d be adding Can’t Wait Wednesday to that list. 🙂  Here’s the basic information about this fun weekly meme celebrating those anticipated releases we all look forward to:

“Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted here, 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.

Just click on the “Read More” button below to see what book I’m looking forward to release day for this week!  Oh, and happy reading to you no matter what genre you love we all love getting lost in a good book. 🙂


I have loved Maisey Yates’ work for many years now.  She writes believable stories no matter if they’re involving arrogant billionaires living in the ultimate of luxuries (Harlequin Presents) or if they’re a down-to-earth ranching family holding onto land, family, and traditions from years gone by (series like Gold Valley) — and everything in between.  She gives us not only long series but worlds in those books that celebrate finding love even when that was the last thing being searched for.  I am always on the lookout for a new book (or series) by Maisey Yates.

So, a new series is launching (and as it seems that Harlequin is doing some moving around of release days) either in December of 2021 or January of 2022.  The prequel for the new Four Corners Ranch series is already out (“Her First Christmas Cowboy”), and next, we get into the series with what looks like another prequel with “The Cowboy She Loves to Hate“. Either way, another prequel or the starter story, I’m looking forward to another Maisey Yates world to get lost in, as well as falling in love once again.  (Cover picture is linked to GoodReads)

“She’s finally taking the cowboy’s bet…but at what cost?

When librarian Nelly Foster shows up on Tag McCloud’s doorstep on her thirtieth birthday, the cowboy knows exactly what she’s come for. Prissy, stubborn and downright irresistible Nelly is finally taking him up on the bet he made her years ago—to relieve her of her unwanted virginity.

Nelly can’t believe she’s finally cashing in her chips. But no man has ever gotten under her skin the way irritating and too-charming-for-his-own-good Tag does. Ever since he pulled her pigtails in school, she’s hated him…but he’s still the only cowboy she wants. And one earth-shattering night in Tag’s arms has Nelly realizing they are bound together by something much more intense…and impossible to walk away from!

Yes, I definitely cannot wait to start a new series by one of my go-to, favorite authors.  I hope you have a story that you’re anticipating being released soon (and that you’re enjoying your current read).

  1. Congratulations on your 1st Can’t Wait Wednesday post!! (I’m on my 523rd consecutive Wednesday post.) Once upon a time I read a lot of cowboy books. I need to get back to it. This sounds like a really good story. I’ll have to check it out!
    I hope you enjoy reading this new series, Marsha.
