18 and Over: Sexy Times

Question of the Week: What’s your favorite time period for your fictional fantasy men? Do you drool over a Scottish Highlander in his kilt swinging his… err… claymore? Do you want a bodice ripper to scandalize you before the ton? Maybe a modern day Commando to sweep you off your feet and then tie you up in creative ways? Or perhaps a futuristic space pirate to kidnap you away from Earth and tempt you with all of his unknown alien bedroom secrets? *eyebrow wiggle*

Elena reviews : A Love by Any Measure by Killian McRae

An Irish lass. An English lord. A love that overcomes all boundaries. August Grayson has secretly dreamt of the girl living on his family’s Irish estate since childhoods spent together in Killarney. Now a proper Lord of the British
Empire, he knows that Maeve could never be more than just a distant fantasy. Still, if only…

Maeve O’Connor owns nothing in this world but her good name, which proves just enough to win a proposal for a marriage of convenience to a good, Irish lad. Until the wedding, however, she’s in dire straits. Rent on the cottage she and her father share is due, but there simply isn’t the money to pay. Driven to desperation, Maeve hopes Lord Grayson, childhood chum turned dashing English rogue, will prove lenient when she comes seeking clemency.

The temptation presented proves too much, and August offers Maeve a compromise: should she permit him twice as long on each succeeding visit to do whatever he wishes in pursuit of his pleasure, he will consider her rent paid. Starting with a mere five seconds, pulses soon out race the ticking clock, as August’s desires become Maeve’s own. Passion blinds them to the challenges closing in on both the Irish and English fronts, threatening to destroy the love they’ve only just rediscovered.

Working to bridge that which divides them, tempting fate with each stolen kiss, and torn between desire and obligation, Maeve and August must strive to overcome all and find a love by any measure…

Review: A Kingdom of Dreams by Judith McNaught

      

Elena’s thoughts:

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.
