Happy Friday! It’s another cold day here in Minnesota. It’s given me a great excuse to curl up and get some reading done. So far I’ve managed to read a good chunk for January and hopefully the read trend will continue.
Speaking of good news, I received an exciting package from Estelle at Forever Pub which I won in a giveaway recently. I’m going to call it a belated Christmas gift because it really is such a wonderful gift and it’s books which I always love receiving! Thank you so much for the sweet note, Estelle! I love how some of the books are bigger paperback ARCs mixed in with the regular sizes. So on to the books!
The Fearless King (The Kings Book 2) by Katee Robert (2/5/19)
Gentleman Sinner by Jodi Ellen Malpas (2/5/19)
Izzy White knows of the darkness in this world. After all, she escaped it long ago. Determined not to let her past beat her, Izzy has a secure, stable life with a job she loves in nursing. But one act of kindness will completely upend everything she’s so carefully built-putting her right back in the crosshairs of danger she’s been so desperate to avoid.
When Theo Kane shows up like a knight in shining armor, Izzy can’t help thinking she’s been saved from one threat and exposed to another. His imposing physique, the harsh lines of his face, and the wariness of everyone who comes close are just a few clues to Theo Kane’s notorious reputation. The man is positively terrifying. But with Izzy, he’s tender and a complete gentleman, and her fascination with the mysterious beast of a man becomes too powerful for her to walk away.
As Theo’s demons come to light, running becomes even more impossible. And yet staying together could doom them both.
The Cowboy Next Door (Montana Strong Book 2) by R.C. Ryan (2/26/19)
Day of the Dragon (Dragon Hunter Book 2) by Katie MacAlister (3/5/19)
Real scholars know that supernatural beings don’t exist. But the moment I meet Archer Andras of the Storm Dragons, all my academic training goes out the window. Thanks to Mr. Tall, Dark, And Infuriating, I’m learning that I really should worry about those things that go bump in the night. . . and that dragons like Archer are 100 percent pure trouble.
Now I’m caught in the middle of a war. On one side is Archer. On the other is his twin brother. And I am the key to translating an ancient text that could bring balance-or deadly ruin-to our world. But none of that is as dangerous as the seriously sexy sparks between Archer and me. He’s too tempting to be real. Too gorgeous to trust. And when it comes to dragons, there’s no smoke without deadly fire.
Includes the novel WOLF’S MATE by Celia Kyle: When Abby Carter is threatened by an anti-shifter organization, werewolf shifter Declan Reed will have to convince her that there’s no safer place in the world than in the arms of a big bad werewolf. Please note that my ARC does not include the Wolf’s Mate.
Meet Cute by Helena Hunting (4/9/19)
The Summer House by Jenny Hale (5/7/19)
Callie Weaver and best friend Olivia Dixon have finally done it: put their life savings into the beach house they admired through childhood summers, on the dazzling white sand of North Carolina’s Outer Banks. They’re going to buff the salt from its windows, paint its sun-bleached sidings, and open it as a bed and breakfast.
Callie’s too busy to think about her love life, but when she catches the attention of local heartthrob Luke Sullivan, his blue eyes and easy smile make it hard to say no. He’s heir to his father’s property empire, and the papers say he’s just another playboy, but as they laugh in the ocean waves, Callie realizes there’s more to this man than money and good looks.
Just when true happiness seems within reach, Callie and Olivia find a diary full of secrets… secrets that stretch across the island, and have the power to turn lives upside down. As Callie reads, she unravels a mystery that makes her heart drop through the floor.
Will Callie and Luke be pulled apart by the storm it unleashes, or can true love save them?

Well that wraps up my bookish ramblings for now. I have a lot to look forward to read and a few books I need to get to this weekend. I’m nearly done with my reread of Trickster’s Choice by Tamora Pierce and about halfway through Exit Strategy by Martha Wells, both of which I am really enjoying. So off to bookland I go! I think I’m going to need a bigger cup of tea and some refreshments!
