Wishlist Wednesday #20

Hosted by Pen to Paper
Katarina Bishop and W.W. Hale the fifth were born to lead completely different lives: Kat comes from a long, proud line of loveable criminal masterminds, while Hale is the scion of one of the most seemingly perfect dynasties in the world. If their families have one thing in common, it's that they both know how to stay under the radar while getting--or stealing--whatever they want. No matter the risk, the Bishops can always be counted on, but in Hale's family, all bets are off when money is on the line.

When Hale unexpectedly inherits his grandmother's billion dollar corporation, he quickly learns that there's no place for Kat and their old heists in his new role. But Kat won't let him go that easily, especially after she gets tipped off that his grandmother's will might have been altered in an elaborate con to steal the company's fortune. So instead of being the heir--this time, Hale might be the mark.

Forced to keep a level head as she and her crew fight for one of their own, Kat comes up with an ambitious and far-reaching plan that only the Bishop family would dare attempt. To pull it off, Kat is prepared to do the impossible, but first, she has to decide if she's willing to save her boyfriend's company if it means losing the boy.
I adored Heist Society. I raved about it in my review and named it my favorite contemporary read in 2012. I loved its sequel, Uncommon Criminals, just as much, though I read it for pleasure rather than for review. And now the second sequel, Perfect Scoundrels, is coming out, and I'm beyond excited.

This book is Hale-centric, which can only be a good thing. Hale is fantastic. He's smart and funny and handsome and rich. I want a Hale. However, as much as I love him as Kat's partner-in-crime, I'm eager to see what type of dynamic we'll see with him as Kat's mark. The angst! The horror!

Ms. Carter has released a snippet or two on Twitter, and they've all made me hungrier for the book.

Also, we've been promised Hale in his Superman pajama bottoms. Yay!

Are you looking forward to reading about Kat's next Heist? What other book are you wishing for this Wednesday?
