Waiting on Wednesday (37) ~ Little Red Riding Hood Retelling

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

What am I waiting on?

Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
May 5th, 2015 from Balzer + Bray

Goodreads description:
When Rachelle was fifteen she was good—apprenticed to her aunt and in training to protect her village from dark magic. But she was also reckless— straying from the forest path in search of a way to free her world from the threat of eternal darkness. After an illicit meeting goes dreadfully wrong, Rachelle is forced to make a terrible choice that binds her to the very evil she had hoped to defeat.

Three years later, Rachelle has given her life to serving the realm, fighting deadly creatures in an effort to atone. When the king orders her to guard his son Armand—the man she hates most—Rachelle forces Armand to help her find the legendary sword that might save their world. As the two become unexpected allies, they uncover far-reaching conspiracies, hidden magic, and a love that may be their undoing. In a palace built on unbelievable wealth and dangerous secrets, can Rachelle discover the truth and stop the fall of endless night?

Inspired by the classic fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood, Crimson Bound is an exhilarating tale of darkness, love, and redemption.

(This is a standalone novel, not part of the Cruel Beauty Universe.)
Why am I waiting on it?
Despite my love/hate relationship with her first book, I really want to read another book by Rosamund Hodge. I really liked the world and concepts of Cruel Beauty (read my review here) and I was still able to recommend the book after hating parts of it. I want to see if the romance in Crimson Bound is better (hopefully it is).

That's my WoW this week! What's yours?
