TO KISS A THIEF…

Scottish barrister Sinclair McBride can face the most sinister criminals in London—but the widower’s two unruly children are a different matter. Little Caitlin and Andrew go through a governess a week, sending the ladies fleeing in tears. There is, however, one woman in town who can hold her own.

Roberta “Bertie” Frasier enters Sinclair’s life by stealing his watch—and then stealing a kiss. Intrigued by the handsome highlander, Bertie winds up saving his children from a dangerous situation and returning them to their father. Impressed with how they listen to her, Sinclair asks the lively beauty to be their governess, never guessing that the uncoventional lady will teach him a lesson or two in love.

Book: Unbinding (A Novel of the Lupi)


By: Eileen Wilks

Release Date: October 7, 2014

Publisher: Berkly


From Amazon:

In the newest Novel of the Lupi, the human and elven worlds are both about to come under attack…


After questing through the sidhe realms with her ex-hellhound lover, Nathan, Kai Tallman Michalski has finally returned home. But she knows Nathan will eventually be called back to serve his queen—and Kai will have to decide whether to enter her majesty’s service as well. Sure, the job comes with great bennies, but there’s one big downside: she would have to swear absolute fealty to the Queen of Winter.

For now, though, Kai is glad to be home, and glad that Nathan completed his mission for his queen with surprising ease. But what seemed to be a quick conclusion turns out to be anything but. The two of them helped thwart the sidhe god of chaos—and he is not happy about that. He’s got plans for them. Plans, too, for the sidhe who killed him some three millennia ago. Nor has he abandoned his plans for Earth, as they learn when chaos begins bursting out all over...

Liebster Award!


Hi All! I've been nominated by Elle of 411 on YA Books for the Liebster Award. I'm honored!

Okay. Here's six random facts about myself:

1. I am a huge Doctor Who fan. The jury is still out on whether I will love this twelfth doctor (Peter Capaldi) as much as I adore the tenth one (David Tennant).
2. Other than my obsession with the Doctor (see #1), I love DIY. I'm putting together plans to build a tiny house as a retreat for writing.
3. My favorite food is fried green tomatoes.
4. My favorite flower is the Lotus.
5. I love dancing!
6. My favorite genre is romance.

Here are the questions Elle asked:

1. What made you want to start blogging?
I've always loved books and reading. This my way of keeping up with the new releases I wanted to read.
2. What is your favorite book of all time?
My favorite book of all time is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
3. Who is better, Harry or Ron?
Ron.
4. If you could meet one author and ask them one question, who would it be, what would it be, and why?
Beverly Jenkins. I'd ask of all the genres, what made her choose to write African American historical romances.
5. How do you decide what your next review is?
My decision is based on when the pre-release is set to go live. If I have more than one, I try to represent with different genres for the designated post.
6. When did you start blogging?
I started a private blog (like a journal,really) in 2006. I started my public blog in 2009.
7. Where in the world would you go if you had two tickets to anywhere? Who is that second ticket for and why?
I'd go to England. The second ticket would be for my mother. We like traveling together.
8. Do you have late fees on local library books?
No late fees. I usually check out ebooks from the library. They automatically go back to the library on the due date.
9. How do you feel about Twilight?
Not my favorite as far as the books are concerned, but I loved the movies. That's odd for me because I usually like the book but not the movie.
10. What is/was your least and most favorite classes in school? Why?
Government. The teacher was boring. She did nothing to make the class interesting.
11. Pick any profession in the world. Why did you pick that one?
Genealogist. It's like detective work figuring out a family's history.

Publisher: Harlequin Teen


From Amazon:

I have a plan.

We'll either destroy them for good, or they'll destroy us.

Either way, only one of us is walking away.

In the stunning conclusion to the wildly popular White Rabbit Chronicles, Alice "Ali" Bell thinks the worst is behind her. She's ready to take the next step with boyfriend Cole Holland, the leader of the zombie slayers…until Anima Industries, the agency controlling the zombies, launches a sneak attack, killing four of her friends. It's then she realizes that humans can be more dangerous than monsters…and the worst has only begun.

As the surviving slayers prepare for war, Ali discovers she, too, can control the zombies…and she isn't the girl she thought she was. She's connected to the woman responsible for killing—and turning—Cole's mother. How can their relationship endure? As secrets come to light, and more slayers are taken or killed, Ali will fight harder than ever to bring down Anima—even sacrificing her own life for those she loves.
