BOOK CLUB THURSDAY REVIEW:The Dark Witch by Nora Roberts

Image
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
And thanks for stopping back for this week's Book Club Thursday.

ABOUT THE BOOK:  With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland - County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors' blood and magic have flowed through generations and where her destiny awaits. Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan's directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O'Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives. When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he's three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package. Iona realizes that …

Fate Accompli Aegean Lovers # 1 By: M.M. Jaye Releasing November 21st, 2014 




Monica Mitchell flies all the way from Boston to Athens, Greece, not to get a tan but a very specific job. Because besides an MBA, this twenty-four-year old has a mission: to prove to Alex Argiros, the gorgeous Greek magnate, that she has now grown out of the habit of flashing her underwear and looking like a zombie flick castoff … in the presence of hundreds.

The catch? She has to hide who she is. Thankfully, not having seen him since her early teens helps, and soon she gets all she wants and so much more. Not only does Alex not connect his highly qualified new assistant to the disaster magnate of his distant past, but apart from his admiration, he also offers her his heart.

Now, Monica has a new mission: to keep it forever. But first she has to come clean before he finds out her connection to the bane of his existence. Because if he does, he’ll rightfully assume she plays the …

BOOK CLUB THURSDAY- GIVEAWAY

Welcome back!

It's another GIVEAWAY!

Our book club is reading this book for our December meeting  and since the author is from Illinois (like we all are) we also decided to give a copy away on our blog. Good Luck!


ABOUT THE BOOK:

Briar Creek #1
Sleigh bells, snow, and second chances . . .
Briar Creek’s quaint shop windows, cozy homes nestled in snow, and neighborly residents are what Christmas dreams are made of—for everyone except Grace Madison. She left her hometown years ago to pursue a writing career. But when her father’s death leaves his bookstore empty, Grace must return to face why she fled Vermont in the first place: Luke Hastings, who still heats her up like a shot of smoky whiskey on a cold winter’s night. Grace is back, and Luke is worried. How much has she changed as a bestselling author in the big city? What memories will she stir up? And was the choice he made five years ago the biggest mistake of his life?
Now, with their past, present, and future rocking around the Christ…

Scandal forced Lady Lily Melrose into an untenable decision: marry the man she wanted but who wanted someone else or leave her home for America. She gambled and stayed. Now, almost four years later, Lily is ready to gamble again—on a future that means leaving her neglectful, absent husband behind. But when a deadly adversary threatens them both, Lily realizes how little she understood about her husband—and her marriage. She's faced with another impossible choice: leave the man she loved to face certain death or stay and fight to help him deliver on a promise he no longer remembers.

Robert Melrose was raised as the forgotten third-born son with no future—without even the label of black sheep to keep him respectable. Not content with obscurity, he cultivated his own path to power, aligning himself with London's underworld, where betrayal is deadly. But when an accident wipes away his past, Robert can't remember who he is or wh…

BOOK CLUB THURSDAY:HOLIDAY BOOK PREVIEW

Image
Welcome back readers and thanks for stopping by.

This week we are chatting about holiday books- specifically one we are looking forward to reading.
I 'm just amazed how quickly the Holiday Season has started. Halloween is barely in our rearview mirror- in fact on Halloween, I started to see Holiday Commercials! And when I drive around, I can't believe the amount of Holiday Lights(LIT ONES) I see up in and out side of homes. I'm all for the season but maybe not quite yet....

The book I'm looking forward to reading this is a few years old. Somehow I missed it on my radar when it first came out which surprised me since I loved another Holiday book by this author.


ABOUT THE BOOK: 


Betty Kowalski isn't looking forward to the holidays. She just can't seem to find Christmas in her heart. There's church, of course. But who can she bake for these days? And who would care whether or not she pulled out the Christmas decorations?

Her new neighbor just adds to the problem. He…

TASTY COVER REVEAL- CORRUPTING CINDERELLA

Image
Can a lawyer and a criminal maintain an enduring romantic relationship?

Although Hope and Rock care deeply for one another, the truth is they come from completely different worlds. Add to that the fact that they are also both headstrong people, and they have a very rough road ahead of them.

For Rock that means introducing Hope to what it really means to be part of his brutal and shady world, where the Lost Kings Motorcycle Club is his main focus. For Hope it means accepting the things she can’t change, and understanding that Rock is a man who will do anything to keep her safe.

As Rock continues to draw Hope deeper into his world, painful misunderstandings and opposition from the members of his club will threaten to drive them apart.

BOOK CLUB THURSDAY: YOU WROTE ABOUT WHAT?

Image
Welcome back readers! Thanks for checking in for another BCT.

This week we are chatting about topics we think have been overdone and topics we don't care for.

I'll admit that I'll read some pretty out there fiction, If you want some examples,  comment below - I'd love to hear what you read that you think fits that category. In fact, sometimes what I read might contain topics that some readers might think are pretty explicit, out there, or just plain weird. Not much offends me; in fact sometimes if a book is labeled as offensive/extreme that draws me to it. However, I do tend to avoid books that glorify/contain excessive violence towards children or animals just for the sake of being shocking.  I'm not talking about suspense/thrillers/horror where, yeah sometimes our serial killer/monster/creature victimizes a child or animal(because that's kind of typical in those books).

Moving on - Overdone topics- things I don't care for? (And I'm talking romances here)
