Bailey Ross’ world is crumbling around her. Her abusive ex, a human, is closing in on her again, and to make matters worse, a new enemy, a djinn, is stalking her. This supernatural being takes great pleasure in human pain, something Bailey has in excess thanks to her ex. If she’s caught by either, she’s as good as dead.
Backed into a corner and desperate to escape, she does something she swore wouldn’t ever be possible again –trusting a man. And he’s a vampire.
Protection via the sexy vampire Erick Thorson may prove to be a little more than she bargained for. Sparks fly between them and she finds herself agreeing to more than just protection. Though he has promised not to let anyone harm her, the small west Texas town is more than it seems and he may not be able to make good on his vow no matter how hard he tries.
Will Sanctuary be the home Bailey longs for or will she have to die to find out? Read the rest of this entry
My neighborhood has a Little Library
If you do not know what a little library is, it is like a over large bird house, they can come in some pretty adorable and funky designs, it just depends on your hood. Well I was on my way to the grocery store and I noticed one in my hood. Excited party of one, now came the dilemma of deciding what book or two to add. I mean I could not be selfish and turn my whole hood into romance fiends…Right?
The whole concept of the Little Library is to add a book for others to read and then you can take a book, the good ole honor system. I had to explain that to my nephew last night, but only twice. You see he wanted to take a book but I brought two so we were covered. In all fairness he was along for the ride he did not understand it until he saw it.
The two books I added to the collection.
One A Personal Matter by Karyn Langhorne. I enjoyed this book it is a reread for me even though it is only told from the heroine’s point of view, but I really feel it will fit the neighborhood, which is a mix of college students, middle to lower income, elderly and very ethnic. (Check out my review).
I also added a newer book Tangled (Tangled, 1) by Emma Chase. I have not read it but it is really hot right now and I see some good reviews on it. It is very shiny, and sometimes covers attract readers and I want to attract readers to the Little Library!
Do you have a Little Library in your hood? What book would you add? I wrote a little note to include in A Personal Matter, I just wanted the person to know why I chose the book and why I love reading, I want a book pen pal!
The Highlander’s Bride Trouble, Mary Wine
Nareen Grant is hiding out, or not exactly hiding more like choosing the role of ladies maid rather than role of wife. Her brother Kael sent her to her cousins underground brothel (unbeknownst to him) and she still has some baggage. She escaped the fate of having her maidenhead sold but the Highlander Saer MacLeod still wants to court her even with her past.
Saer the savage Highlander now Laird, cannot get Nareen Grant out of his mind. He knows what it is like to have a savage past and he admires her strength. When most fear him she has spirit. He plans to court her, she is the family he wants.
Bookswagger Marcia: Three Crowns, swagger jacked, decent read. I was sad. I have to admit this one was okay, not a reread for me and I do tend to reread Mary Wines older historical romances but this will not be one of those. Not that I did not like any of the characters it was just a little boring and I did not understand why. I am not sure if it was because most of the conflict was internal, although Nareen was kidnapped by another honorable Scot for like a blink. If you love historicals and like to keep up with the series give it a go. I have only read book one in the series so you can definitely jump in or jump around.
Straight to the Swagger: Had all the historical romance elements but did not love it, you might want to save your duckies. Okay read.
