A Bookworm Meets Her Match!

Good afternoon,

I generously received an advanced reading copy in exchange for an honest review.

I was so excited to receive this book and had a feeling it would be wonderful to read. I wasn’t disappointed and it’s my favorite book of the Windham Brides so far.  This book also marks my Goodreads Goal of reaching 80 books this year. I can’t think of a better book to reach my goal and with plenty of time to spare to read more this year! If Elizabeth were a real person, I’m sure her and I could be dear friends while sharing our love of reading and spreading the love of literacy!

Elizabeth Windham and her sister Charlotte find themselves invited to a house party in the wilds of Wales where it is rumored that Julian St. David, Duke of Havorford’s sister Glenys is hoping to find a potential bride for her bachelor brother. Elizabeth could care less about that aspect and has accepted her road to almost spinsterhood but when she learns that his Grace owns one of the biggest personal libraries, her bookworm self can’t help to be drawn in and she’s trying to flee an almost scandal at the urging of her parents.

Julian is barely keeping himself above water with the amount of bills that keep piling up and his sister’s house party expenses as well as matchmaking are not making things any easier. Tasked with the burdens of inherited debt, a huge collection of books that seem to be the main reason for his ancestors accumulating debt, a sister he is trying to find a potential groom for, a younger brother who is special, and the burden of providing for servants and the nearby town, it’s a lot for one guy to have to take on.

Shortly after arriving, Elizabeth finds herself intrigued by Julian and not just for his collection of books. Reveling being surrounded by so many books, a very attentive Duke, beautiful countryside and her growing attraction to the Duke over books, she realizes that maybe it wasn’t so bad after all to be sent to Wales for a time. Add in a well meaning Aunt, a younger sister who likes to push the limits and helping out the overwhelmed Glenys and it just may be what she was looking for all along.

Julian and Elizabeth are at times complete opposites and yet a pair of the most adorable people I have been fortunate to read about. These two are wonderful full of surprises. What kind of bookworm wouldn’t fall in love with a Duke who has a large collection of books and is more than willing to share that love of literature?!

Full of adventure, a bookworm’s dream of a huge library, steamy scenes, well-meaning family, humor and the beauty of Wales, I loved this story from beginning to end. This is one of my favorite books of this year and on my list of favorite books read!

In fact, I loved it so much that I had to go out on the day of its release and get my own paper copy from my local Barnes and Noble!

Here’s Elizabeth with all but one of her sisters who have found happiness in this series! I loved the finished copy of this book as well as my ARC copy! I can’t wait to see how Charlotte’s story will go!

Thank you so much for dropping by to take a look at this post and I hope that you’ve enjoyed my bookish ramblings. It’s been such a joy to have all of the bookish adventures I have so far and looking forward to many more adventures!

Happy reading!

Christmas in the Scottish Highlands!

Good morning,

I recently finished a wonderful anthology with five very talented authors and it was such fun to get caught up in historical Scotland! Get yourself a warm cup of tea, chocolate, coffee, maybe even whisky and prepare to settle in!

I generously received a digital advanced reading copy from the publisher and Netgalley. This was a combination of five very talented women with stories that center around Christmas and the Scottish Highlands.

A HIGHLANDER’S HOPE by Terri Brisbin
A village harlot who would never dream she could have a different life meets a Highlander visitor for the holidays who brings with him an offer and hope!

LEFTOVER MISTLETOE by Lavinia Kent
What happens when a highlander finds himself stranded, maybe kidnapped, with an English lady around Christmas… maybe the mistletoe will help answer that question.

A SCOT FOR CHRISTMAS by Bronwen Evans
She’s ready to embrace her life and future as a spinster, he’s trying to have one last hurrah before he gives into his family’s wishes and proposes marriage to his neighbor, but fate has other ideas when the lady and the Scot meet at a holiday house party in the wilds of Scotland.

SWEET HOME HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS by May McGoldrick
A chance encounter between a ship’s captain and a desperate aunt trying to keep custody of her young niece leads to a little magic during the holidays.

A HIGHLAND CHRISTMAS WAGER by Lecia Cornwall
When a snowstorm forces a charming lass hiding a broken heart to take shelter in a castle with three fine Highland lairds just days before Christmas, there’s a game afoot—who will be the first to win a kiss and maybe her heart

My Thoughts:

Life often has a way of throwing curve balls and yet sometimes those unexpected twists can lead to just the right place to be. These stories were tales of men and women who each found themselves at a crossroads and how sometimes when you least expect it, you can find what you’ve been looking for all along.

Each of these stories involved finding love when you least expect it and the magic of Christmas. I loved each one of these stories and the characters that they brought to the mix. Trying to pick a favorite story is akin to me attempting to pick just one book to take on a road trip which is impossible and each one has helped me to see why I love reading fictional books about finding love in Scotland whether it be from the 12th Century or the present time.

I wanted all of them to be longer but that’s just because I enjoyed them so much and the content that was in the stories worked very well in the allotted pages for each of the stories. I realize that if each of the authors had written regular sized books in this anthology, it would have been well over 1000 pages so it makes perfect sense about the lengths!There were a couple of authors that I hadn’t read before and now I have added to my list of authors to want to read more of their books!

Full of adventure, men in kilts, mystery, steamy scenes, the power of love and Christmas in the Scottish Highlands, it was such a wonderful compilation of stories to curl up with especially now that the seasons are changing and it’s getting colder. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a love of historical romance that takes place near Christmas and checking out each of these authors!

I’m so looking forward to what next this talented group of ladies will have up their sleeves!

I don’t know about you but once I read an anthology that I’ve enjoyed, I  wanted to dive into each of the books that the author has written especially if there are multiple books in a series. I love the thought of getting to know families and how they came to find their loves especially when it involves being in Scotland.

So I hope you’ve enjoyed my somewhat brief ramblings. I don’t want to spoil things for those who are interested because I’d rather you get to enjoy it fully but trust me when I say if you’d enjoy the kinds of books that I do, the wait of finding out what’s in store will be so worth it!

Thank you so much for tuning in and I will be back soon with more ramblings about my love of books and bookish things in general. In the meantime, happy reading!

A Natural History of Dragons

Good evening,

I recently read a book that was so much fun to read and I can’t believe I haven’t read it sooner!

51QoJTE2ixL

Buy Links:

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

This book was such a pleasure to read and a different take on living with dragons. I loved the aspect of some Steampunk mixed with fantasy and in some ways reminded me of a cross between Victorian England, the Western era and Scotland though the names were changed and it was just my impression.

This is an early account of the memoirs of Lady Isabella Trent talking about her life up until she’s about nineteen. She was a woman who was obsessed with learning about dragons and in fact had A Natural History of Dragons memorized by the time she was a teenager. She grew up the only girl in a family of five boys, where her family was quite well off, a father who was also passionate about reading and a mother who hoped she would be a proper lady some day. Her passion as a young girl led her on quite the interesting forays into a touch of science and a few rather dangerous excursions. She tried her best to be a proper girl for about two years though it was stifling and didn’t go over so well.

Her father manages to convince her to go with her mother to a nearby city for a season in the hopes of finding a husband which also leads her to learning more about dragons. A chance encounter in a Menagerie with her brother as chaperone leads her to meeting Jacob Camherst, a man who is well off, who eventually becomes her husband. Little does she know just how much Jacob will change her life and give her the beginnings to fulfilling her dreams of learning more about dragons.

I found this book hard to put down and it really did read like a memoir. I found myself wanting to read a short book she mentioned which hasn’t actually been published but it’s so convincing that such a thing could exist! There were even drawings of different dragons, interesting things found and a touching picture towards the end of the book.

 

One of my favorite parts of the book was how Isabella’s father convinced her to search for a husband which goes as follows- “A husband willing to fund a library for his bookish wife is not so easy to obtain; most would see it as a pointless expense. You might, however, find one willing to share his library. The gentlemen on that list are all amateur scholars, with well-stocked studies.” Papa’s eyes gleamed at me from beneath this brows, and the lines around them threatened to crinkle up. “I have it on good authority that the ones I have underlined possess a copy of A Natural History of Dragons.”

The ending of the book came as quite the surprise and wasn’t where I had expected the book to go. After reading it though, some things made sense and cleared up a few questions I had. I won’t spoil it because that just wouldn’t be very nice but it certainly was shocking.

Full of adventure, mystery, books, dragons and surprises, I can’t wait to get my hands on more of the books in this series. I’ve been told that the series gets even better as it goes along so I can’t wait to dive in. At this point and time, this book is for sure on my list of top books I’ve read this year!

Well I hope you’ve enjoyed my ramblings and if you enjoy reading about dragons, you’ll most likely really enjoy this book. The bookworm part of me wants to read all of them in one sitting but alas I will need to pace myself and there are others books that need to be read too.

Happy Reading!

Christmas Blitz in October!

Good evening,

I am posting this a bit early because I am working all day tomorrow and want to share in the joy of recently taking part in a Blitz before tomorrow evening which is when I would be able to ramble about six books I was invited to view! I know I said five books but alas I forgot one and here I am to rectify that. All of the books mentioned in this post, apart from the last one, are now available for you to get your own copy! I alas was not able to read all of these books from cover to cover (I will read all of them soon) but I did read a chapter for each one which helped me to decide which one to continue with first and the ones to read soon. These books are not in any particular order of what I want to read but I will let you know which one was the winner!

Holiday_Romance_Blitz_Banner

Book #1- Hope At Christmas by Nancy Naigle

image001

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

I found this book really interesting which is a story about Sydney and her daughter RayAnne moving from Atlanta, Georgia back to Hopewell, NC where her grandparents left her a house. Sydney just wants a fresh start after the difficult divorce she went through with her jerk of an ex-husband Jon who was unfaithful to her and tried to be manipulative throughout the proceedings. Her ten year old daughter is not happy about the move but Sydney feels it was the best thing for everyone and she just wants to move on from the past.

There’s a bookstore called The Book Bea that Sydney used to visit a lot as a child and is still running which she can’t help but check out again as an adult because it brings back just wonderful memories and she’s a bookworm so that makes so much sense right there!

I love this quote she says shortly after rediscovering The Book Bea –

“Books had always rescued her, and she’d never stopped trusting a good book to bring her joy, erase her fears, and give her strength. That same excitement swirled inside her”.

I don’t know about you but I can already tell that I am really going to enjoy reading this book which will be number two on my list to read before the end of the month!

Book #2- A Season of You by Emma Douglas

image001-1

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

Mina and her yellow lab Stewie find themselves on the side of a road with a flat tire in the middle of the night with the start of a storm coming in Lansing Island, CA. Mina is attempting to fix the flat tire when she slips on the tarp she laid out and knocks herself out.

Will just happens to spot a car with its headlights on out the window not far from where he’s working at his Distillery and goes to investigate, finding his old friend Mina knocked out cold and rescues the both of them just in time.

It’s obvious these two have an interesting history and Will mentions the feelings he’d developed for her when they were younger but he kept his distance because she had been engaged at the time.

I’m really curious to know more details about these two and I think it’s really cool that Will owns a distillery!

Book #3- Christmas At Two Love Lane by Kieran Kramer

image001-2

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

Macy Frost is a matchmaker at Two Love Lane in Charleston, South Carolina whose ancestor Thomas Winston Frost claimed he was a direct descendant of Cupid so you could say that her skills run in the family though she’s one of the few people in her immediate family that hasn’t had much success with love on a personal level.

Then she meets a Northerner named Deacon Banks who is a George Clooney lookalike who strolls right into her office one day and though that annoys her a bit, she starts wondering who she can match make with him. He doesn’t want a partner for love though but strictly for business reasons.

Macy really doesn’t like the man’s attitude and starts to turn him away but then he offers to pay double what she normally charges. She’s tempted but turns him down though a part of her wants to say yes.

Sounds like this is going to be a very interesting read indeed and I’m curious how these two will really get on!

Book #4-  Deck The Halls by Donna Alward

DeckTheHalls-1

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

This book is a novella at the length of about 117 pages so if you’re looking for a fast read whether you’ve read the books before this one or are new to the series like myself, it’s a great way to go!

George Reilly works for The Ladybug Garden Center in Darling, Vermont and is helping set things up for the Christmas season when his old friend Ian Merck’s twin sister Amy shows up who he hasn’t seen in fifteen years and is really upset to see her. Apparently Ian had been in Iraq along with George and something happened to him that he felt responsible for and didn’t want to see Ian’s family because of the pain it brought.

He was so sure he had put that time of his life behind him, had moved on and wants to know why Amy found him. She wants to know what went on with her brother and why George had stopped contacted them especially after whatever happened in Iraq.

I too want to know what happened years ago and why George feels so responsible for something that I’m sure he had no control over. Hopefully the truth will be revealed!

Book #5- With This Christmas Ring by Manda Collins

image001

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

This book is also a novella at just under 200 pages and who can say no to the possibility of reading about two people getting a possible second chance at love?! I know I can’t!

Merry Parks bursts into her house with an infant named Lottie in her arms much to the shock of some of the servants whose Mother was her dear friend Charlotte Smithson that just passed away shortly from a fever shortly after giving birth and she had promised to take care of. Charlotte asked that Merry find Lottie’s father who is a Wrotham.

She found out that the child is cousin to Alexander, Lord Wrotham who apparently used to be someone that she had hoped to marry some day but didn’t for some reason. It would seem to me that she still has feelings for the man and I wonder what really broke these two up.

I can’t wait to see how the reunion of these two goes and I feel so bad for Lottie who I hope will find a happier life than the one she was born into. A very intriguing first chapter indeed!

Book #6-  Christmas in Kilts by 5 Very Talented Authors! *This is the winner of which book I am going to read first, also this book will be out 10/31!!*

Christmas in Kilts_Cover

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

Five Scotsmen and their lady loves? Sounds like my kind of story!

I actually read the first two chapters and the beginning of a third with the first novel in this compendium which is called A Highlander’s Hope by Terri Brisbin and it really intrigued me. It’s a story about Iain MacKillop who lives in the 14th Century, is a widower and lately been asked to consider marrying again at the urging of his nephew Jamie whose first wife passed away before they could have children. He’s been pretty much set against it especially the thought of marrying a woman who is barely of age and seems to mostly be for the alliance of a clan.

Then he suddenly finds himself liking Robena MacKendimen as more than just a woman that he passes the time with and is known as the sort of Town Mistress. There’s another word used but I’d much rather use Mistress who has been treated very well and is drawn to Iain but doesn’t think she’d be the right kind of gal because of her Profession.

I can tell just from the beginning of this story that Iain doesn’t give a fig about her profession and could see himself being with this woman on a permanent basis and I can’t wait to see what happens with their story!

I have not read the other stories in this series but I know that I will because they are all by talented authors and I just can’t resist stories that involve men in kilts!

 

So that concludes my ramblings on these books taken from the first chapters. They all sound like very interesting books and once I have read them, I will give a more in depth review. I can’t wait to see how each one will turn out and I hope that you’ll enjoy them too!

Happy Reading!

In Pieces Book Release Week Blitz!

InPieces_ReleaseWeekBlitz

Good evening,

It has been quite the crazy week but I’m sure you’d much rather hear about my thoughts on a book I recently read than non-bookish things so let’s get to it! I was very lucky to be asked if I wanted to review an early physical copy of In Pieces and participate in the Release Week Blitz. Of course I couldn’t say no!

In Pieces - Book Jacket

Buy Links:

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

I generously received a paper ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review which is the second novel in the Something More Series.
This is the story of a young woman named Beth Caplan who has crushed on her big brother’s best friend David March since she was a little girl and has always tried to watch over her.
Beth grew up in a world where she went on family vacations along with other families, living in a large house and generally well off. She’s also had a difficult time dealing with depression, the abuse of her Mom and Brother Sammy by her Dad when he’d get drunk and occasionally lash out until she was around ten when her brother kicked their Dad out and didn’t hear from him for several years, her boyfriend dumping her and anxiety. It all comes to a head one terrible night when she was fifteen that will resonate a few years later when she goes off to college.
David has always felt drawn to Beth, spending a lot of time with her as a guardian of sorts until she’s in her teens when his feelings change though he fights them because he doesn’t want to damage his relationship with Sammy aka Cap who warned him not to attempt to date his sister or else.
Then they both end up at the same University and things start to get complicated to say the least.
Beth is trying to shake off the ghosts of her past, try to work past her anxiety, fight her attraction of David and try to stay focused on her studies to become a psychologist to help others who struggle with similar mental health.
David has a lot on his plate. He’s studying to become a play right (much to his father’s disapproval), a member of a sorority that has a lot of events going on, and can’t help keeping a close eye on Beth which is on the verge of smothering at times but he means well and beneath the surface, his feelings towards Beth keep growing way past friendly affection and into territory that he’s pretty sure is going to blow up in his face.
Then one drunken night, these two are unable to fight their attraction to each other and it will start a chain reaction that will be far from easy but could very well be just what these two need.
There’s a very shady person on campus who attacked a member of David’s sister sorority though she doesn’t seem to want to tell fully what has happened. The person accused has recently become a new friend to Beth who soon finds herself doing what she can to avoid being around him and moves in with David at his insistence after learning that he lives in the same building as her. Soon though, a truth of what happened to the woman that night will be revealed, appearances can be deceiving and sometimes the monsters are hiding in sheep’s clothing.
This book was a fascinating mix of finding love from a young age, how debilitating mental illness can be, the power of forgiveness and several steamy scenes. I flew through most of this book in a day and I loved how things turned out!

Five Christmas Books In October!

Holiday_Romance_Blitz_Banner

Good afternoon, I was recently asked if I wanted to join in for a reading blitz and of course I couldn’t say no! I was given my choice of a variety of books and somehow managed to narrow it down to five ARCs. All but the last one are now available to get a copy for yourself so you too can enjoy Christmas early from the comfort of your favorite reading spot!

With This Christmas Ring

image001

A wallflower determined to fulfill a dying promise, the rogue she jilted years ago, and an orphaned baby are all brought together amidst the magic of Christmas in this new novella from Manda Collins.

Miss Merry Parks makes a deathbed promise to a schoolfriend that her infant daughter will be taken to her absent father. There’s only one problem—to find the baby’s father, she’ll have to consult his cousin, Viscount Wrotham, the man she jilted five years ago. The man she couldn’t forget.

Alex Ponsonby, Viscount Wrotham, is stunned to find Merry Parks—looking more lovely than ever–on his doorstep with an infant in her arms. His shock soon turns to dismay when he learns his own cousin William is the man who abandoned his wife and child. As head of the family he’s duty bound to see right is done. But he can’t let this opportunity pass. He’ll take Merry and the baby to his cousin, but he’ll woo her back in the process.
Merry agrees to travel with Alex and the baby to Wrotham Castle, where the entire Ponsonby family has gathered for Christmas, but her plans to see the baby settled then leave are ruined by a snowstorm. After five years apart, Alex and Merry will spend the week getting reacquainted. Perhaps it’s the spirit of the holiday, or the magic of the season, but there could be something else in the air this Yuletide…A Christmas Reunion.

A Season of You

 

image001-1

It’s Christmastime in the quaint island town of Cloud Bay, where love is always in season… Will Fraser has believed in love at first sight since the day he first laid eyes on Mina Harper five years ago. There was only one problem: She was happily married. Then, when Mina’s husband was killed by a drunk driver, Will figured she’d want nothing to do with a guy who owns a whiskey distillery. So he’s kept his feelings locked away, knowing that not even a Christmas miracle would be enough to melt Mina’s heart. . . Mina believes her days of true love are behind her. Since losing her husband she’s kept to herself, content to do her own painting and stay out of the limelight that comes with her famous family. But when, after a freak accident, Will comes to her rescue, Mina can’t quite get him out of her mind. As curiosity turns into a fling during Cloud Bay’s first Christmas Festival, she finds it harder to convince herself that her feelings for Will are just mistletoe-inspired. Could Mina be ready to lay the past to rest and finally admit that what she really wants for Christmas―and forever―is Will?

Christmas At Two Love Lane

image001-2

The best gift of all is the one you share with someone else. . .

From the moment he strode through the iron gate and into the offices of Two Love Lane on a crisp December day, it was obvious that Deacon Banks was something different. He wasn’t a Charleston native, not with that adorable Yankee accent. And unlike the usual client at the elegant matchmaking agency, he had no interest in finding a woman to marry―just a few no-strings dates while he was in town.

Macy Frost takes her professional services very seriously―how could she not, when she’s rumored to be a direct descendant of Cupid? Tech entrepreneur Deacon says he’s just trying to make his social-climbing aunt happy by being seen out and about with a few prominent beauties, but Macy insists she can make her client fall in love…for real. And Deacon can’t help but think she might be right. As charming as the palmetto trees and magnificent harbor may be, it’s the beautiful, breath-of-fresh-air Macy who’s become Deacon’s favorite part of the scenery. But can the hopelessly romantic Southern belle stop trying to fix him up and just let Cupid do his work on her own heart?

 Deck The Halls

DeckTheHalls-1.jpg

With shades of It’s a Wonderful Life, one man must face his past to find his future this Christmas.

In the last year, George’s life has drastically changed. The formerly homeless veteran now has a job he likes, a family in the residents of Darling, VT, and for the first time in years, a home. But while his present is good, he’s still haunted by the past, a past that appears shortly before Christmas when the older sister of his brother-in-arms hunts him down and finds him in Darling, working at the Ladybug Garden Center.

Amy’s looking for closure for her family after her brother’s death in the Middle East, but the serious man she finds working in Vermont doesn’t resemble the soldier she remembers from years before. This man is hardened and yet somehow fragile, too, and in her desire to find out what really happened to her brother, she learns more about George than she ever expected.

With a little Christmas magic and the whole town supporting them, can these two bruised hearts make a future together?

Earth Tales Meet Whovian Tales!

Good morning,

I recently read a fascinating tale that was just the thing I was looking for especially being a Whovian ( for non Whovians that means a Doctor Who fan).

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

I received an advanced reading galley from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I was so excited to be approved for this book because I’m a proud Whovian and love reading anything to do with Doctor Who.
This was an interesting collection of Earth tales that were turned into Gallifreyan tales, many involving creatures that I haven’t heard of but made sense to be a part of the Whoniverse. There were themes at times similar to our own and at others futuristic themes.

In the beginning of the book, there’s a reference as to who the Doctor Who tales we’re inspired by which was very helpful.

A wonderous tale full of aliens, magic, adventure, and the power of friendship, it was a pleasure to read these tales and a great companion for those who wish to know more about the Doctor Who world!

Happy Reading!

~Meg
