I Can't Wait for... The Scout and the Scoundrel by Barbara Ann Wright

Fantasy Books Coming Soon!

Can't-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted over at Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we're excited about and have yet to read. Generally they're books that have yet to be released, but not necessarily. It's based on Waiting on Wednesday, which was originally hosted at Breaking the Spine. 

My pick for this week is the second book of the Sisters of Sarras trilogy, which blends high-stakes historical fantasy with passionate romance...

 The Scout and the Scoundrel
Author: Barbara Ann Wright
Publisher: Bold Strokes Books, Inc.
Publication Date: Nov 16, 2022
Genres: Fantasy, Romance

Zara del Amanecer’s purpose in life is to do her duty, whether as a noble or a scout. She never shirks her responsibilities, especially with missions as simple as this one: to reconnoiter the border with the Firellian Empire and report anything suspicious. Easily done, even with a new recruit conscripted from prison. Never mind that Veronique the thief ignites unfamiliar feelings in Zara, from furious loathing to overwhelming desire.

Roni can’t stop imagining how passionate Zara would be if she thought less about duty, or even if she cared more about survival. Because the Firellians have a new magical weapon no one suspected, and they’re not about to let anyone who’s seen it get out alive. In the sights of an empire planning invasion, Zara and Roni’s principles might not be the only things sacrificed.

Book 2 in the Sisters of Sarras Trilogy


  1. I am not a reader of fantasy but they do have some of the best covers

    Here is my link:

    1. I have been told that the Sisters of Sarras books are good fantasy reads for people who don't often (or ever) read fantasy. Starter fantasy, if you will.
      And yes, that is a shameless plug.

    2. And I can attest to the fact that the first book was fantastic, so prepare to get hooked. :)
