Waiting on Wednesday

WAITING ON WEDNESDAY OH, how i have missed you!!! Glad to be back doing one of my favoritest memes EVAH!! In case you don't know, WoW is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine! and here's my pick for this week:

Arcadia Awakens
To Rosa Alcantara, the exotic world of Sicily, with its network of Mafia families and its reputation for murder and intrigue, is just that—exotic and wholly unknown. But when her life in Brooklyn begins to fall apart, she must travel there, to her family’s ancestral home, where centuries of family secrets await her. 

Once there, Rosa falls head over heels for Alessandro Carnevare, the son of a Sicilian Mafia family, whose handsome looks and savage grace both fascinate and unsettle her. But their families are sworn enemies, and her aunt and sister believe Alessandro is only using Rosa to infiltrate the Alcantara clan. And when Rosa encounters a tiger one night—a tiger with very familiar eyes—she can no longer deny that neither the Carnevares nor the Alcantaras are what they seem. 

Hidden caves, dangerous beasts roaming the hills, and a history of familial bloodlust mean that Rosa can’t trust anyone. Torn between loyalty to her family and love for their mortal enemy, Rosa must make the hardest decision of her life: stay in Sicily with her new love…or run as far and as fast as she can.~Goodreads

HOLY NUGGIN'S DOES THIS BOOK SOUND FLUPPIN' FANTASTIC OR WHAT?!?!! WOWZA! The cover & the synopsis literally have me in awe! Sicily. Mafia. Alessandro. Tigers!?! I am SO THERE!!
