**I was given a copy of this book by the author for an honest review.**
Country girl Cali has been kept a secret her entire life, raised in isolation by two very troubled people. Despite her parent’s disturbing fits, Cal is perfectly content, living as one with the nature that surrounds her, and finding adventure inside the pages of her beloved books. When an awful tragedy tears her away from her remote cabin in the woods, nothing she’s ever read has prepared her for a world that she knows very little about.
Girls and motorcycles are what bad-boy Cal’s life is all about. Brought up in a raucous party house by his biker brother, he’s free to do as he pleases, going through the motions on his final days of high school. Aimless, Cal stopped thinking about his future a long time ago.
Attacked by a gang of thugs while running an errand for his brother, Cal is in serious trouble until a fierce girl appears out of nowhere to intervene. She chases off three grown men, sparing Cal a brutal beating before disappearing into the night like a spirit. He can’t stop thinking about his mysterious rescuer, and when she turns out to be the weird new girl at school who goes out of her way to avoid him, he can’t contain his curiosity.
He’s never met anyone like her before, and the more he learns about the unusual girl who shares his nickname, the more he wants to know. Cal can’t help falling for Cal, but can he keep her from falling victim to a dangerous enemy from her parent’s tragic past?
On her wedding day, Veronica Sinclair thinks she has it all: the loving family, the Vera Wang dress, the hunky husband. But then a mysterious and beautiful woman shows up at the reception, suggesting Veronica’s new hubby isn’t exactly who he says he is. As if that weren’t enough, Veronica and Richard must flee gunmen in the middle of their honeymoon, convincing Veronica she got more than she bargained for when she said, “I do.”
Thrown into a world of espionage, seduction, and human trafficking, Veronica must fight for the life and husband she thought she had – and she must discover whether they are the life and husband she truly wants.
I was introduced to Heather Huffman’s books about a year ago thanks to “Gabriel’s Inferno” author Sylvain Reynard, who recommended Throwaway. I decided to give it a try and I loved it. I loved the characters, the story, the message of the book–it is truly a great read. I was curious to see whether Heather Huffman would have delivered another thrilling and engaging tale in Suddenly A Spy and I can safely say that my question was answered with an enthusiastic YES! Huffman proves to be an excellent writer that sucks the reader into her stories with her beautiful writing, believable characters, great romance and exciting adventures.
This is the story of Veronica and Richard, a loving and newlywed couple whose world is turned upside down when some unexpected revelations begin to surface…revelations that could endanger their lives and put their marriage to a test. How much are they willing to sacrifice and at what cost will they fight for their love?
Ryan Matthews has everything he ever wanted. Close to graduation from Harvard Medical School and on the verge of marrying his gorgeous and accomplished girlfriend, Julia Abbott, his dreams are about to come true.
Julia is on the fast track as a fashion editor for a big New York magazine. Ryan plans to join her there to complete his residency at a major trauma center and all of their sacrifice is finally at it’s end.
When tragedy strikes, their relationship is hurled into turmoil that leaves Ryan devastated as sorrow drives him to keep his distance, while Julia reaches out to find him again.
The second book of The Remembrance Trilogy follows Ryan and Julia’s quest to rebuild their stunning past; an incredibly beautiful and heart-breaking romance, full of passion, intensity and truly immeasurable love. You’ll be left spellbound, breathless and aching for more…
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”
So begins Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an expanded edition of the beloved Jane Austen novel featuring all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie mayhem. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton—and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers—and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield. Can Elizabeth vanquish the spawn of Satan? And overcome the social prejudices of the class-conscious landed gentry? Complete with romance, heartbreak, swordfights, cannibalism, and thousands of rotting corpses, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transforms a masterpiece of world literature into something you’d actually want to read.
It’s been a really long time since I did a series review rather than one on each book, but that’s exactly what I’m going do today.
I spoke briefly about this series of books not too long ago in another post. I’d been in a real reading slump…such a bummer when that happens. I’d seen my friend Jag tweet about how good these books were, and if I were forced to only choose one person to get book rec’s from she’d be mine.
I DL’d the 1st book into my Kindle, but before I started reading it I also made a trip to one of my favorite book stores to check the series out a little more hands on. As much as I love my Kindle it will never replace the feeling I get when I hold a print book in my hands. Since I’m big on cover art as well, seeing it up close and personal is just way better than seeing it on a screen. I gathered up all the titles said book store had available and found a cozy chair off in a corner…O…and I had a caramel macchiato too…coffee and books in the same place?!? Heaven! That’s almost as good as Wine+bubble bath+book
When unworldly student Ana Steele first encountered the driven, damaged young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and ultimately repelled by Christian’s singular sexual tastes, Ana demanded a deeper commitment; determined to keep her, Christian agreed.
Now, together, they have more – love, passion, intimacy, and a world of infinite possibilities. But Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy, and being together poses challenges neither of them ever anticipated. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own integrity, identity or independence; Christian must somehow overcome his compulsion to control, and lay to rest the horrors that blighted his past and haunt his present.
Just when it seems that together their love can conquer any obstacle, misfortune, malice and fate combine to make Ana’s worst nightmares come true. Alone and desperate, she must face down the poisoned legacy of Christian’s past.
Seductive, shocking, sad and funny, Fifty Shades Freed is the compelling final volume in the Fifty Shades trilogy.
Those of you who know me on Goodreads are already aware of my passion for Judith McNaught’s novels. Yes, I’m a huge fan. I discovered her books last year thanks to an Amazon.com recommendation and to my friend @chriserlyn who encouraged me to read them. Well, I soon became addicted to her stories and what stories they are!
“A Kingdom of dreams” is the kind of book you want to read over and over again. When I really love a book I find myself not being able to let it go. I just can’t put it on the bookshelf and leave it there. I wear its pages out due to the many re-reads, I add notes and highlights to the point of craziness. But I guess, this is what a good book does to us readers. To be a good book means to leave a mark on the reader , to make him think about it over and over again and “A Kingdom of dreams” is one of them.

At twenty-nine, fun-loving, good-natured Claire has everything she ever wanted: a husband she adores, a great apartment, a good job. Then, on the day she gives birth to her first baby, James visits her in the recovery room to inform her that he’s leaving her. Claire is left with a beautiful newborn daughter, a broken heart, and a body that she can hardly bear to look at in the mirror. So, in the absence of any better offers, Claire decides to go home to her family in Dublin. To her gorgeous man-eating sister Helen, her soap-watching mother, her bewildered father. And there, sheltered by the love of an (albeit quirky) family, she gets better. A lot better. In fact, so much better that when James slithers back into her life, he’s in for a bit of a surprise.
