Here is the wonderful cover and the blurb;).
Forced to marry a violent man, Beatrice knows only one way out—ruin her reputation. She climbs aboard the Venia, a dirigible of ill repute, for a masquerade. Bea doesn’t expect to run into Vaughn Kemple, the third Duke of Missenden, who eight months ago left her without an explanation. Feeling secure behind her mask, she decides Vaughn will be the one to ruin her. She may not get to spend forever with this man she still loves, but at least she can have one night of pleasure.
But a mask is not enough to hide her identity. Vaughn recognizes Bea, shocked to find her aboard an airship where sexual freedom isn’t just a thought, it’s celebrated. But her actions are far from innocent. Captivated, he’s determined to make her his.
The heat between them flares, but Vaughn is torn between desire and honor. Bea is afraid to risk her heart on a man she can’t trust. And when her future husband arrives on the scene, more than their hearts are in danger.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!:)
The weekend after next I'm heading out of the city to a friend's cottage with my writing group. I am hoping for great weather to shake off some of the stress of the city and to make progress with my full-length steampunk story. And obviously to have loads of fun with the girls;).
Have a great week!
22) Celebrity in Death, J. D. Robb
J.D. Robb aka Nora Roberts could write a phone book and I would read it, Eve Dallas' latest adventure is intriguing and twisted and kept me glued to the seat until the end
23) Angel's Flight, Nalini Singh
Nalini is a master writer, I had already read two of the stories in this anthology, but Angel's Dance made me cry, each and every story has well developed characters and enough emotion to make you want to continue reading forever, I want to be Nalini Singh when I grow up;)
24) Private Property, Leah Braemel
sexy novella by one of my Chapter members
25) Fair Game, Patricia Briggs
OMG, I LOVED this book! I love the Mercy books, but always had a weakness for Anna and Charles, the twists and turns are amazing and the ending blew me away as I was utterly surprised, I cannot wait for the next book in the series
26) The Last Twilight, Majorie M. Liu
this was my first trip into the world of Dirk & Steele, a book I picked up at RWA last year, I thoroughly enjoyed it and it was so good it helped me to forget I was in a sardine can 30,000 feet in the air bumping around in turbulence on my way to Tokyo, the entertainment was a joke, so this book was a life saver
27) Photographs & Phantoms, Cindy Spencer Pape
a fun steampunk novella by a talented writer
28) Embrace, Jessica Shirvington (proof)
intriguing YA with great characters and an unusual storyline
29) Unraveling, Elizabeth Norris (proof)
amazing YA with a story so complex and involved I nearly had to draw graphs, unfortunately the author killed off a lot of characters toward the end which made me stop enjoying the book as much as I had at the beginning
30) Trinity, Lauren Dane
sexy first book in a series, I preferred the second book, but still enjoyed this
31) The Alchemyst, Michael Scott
fun, action-packed first book in a fabulous series
32) Erebos, Ursula Poznanski
an utterly amazing book, part thriller, part fantasy, part horror, the translation from German is fantastic and this is a story you won't forget very quickly, I recommend this book to everybody, it is fabulous
33) Neil Flambe and the Crusaders Curse, Kevin Sylvester (proof)
another fabulous and hilarious adventure of the teen chef, Kevin is a fantastic author and the mix of mystery and humour will appeal to everybody, no matter the age
34) Discount Armageddon, Seanan McGuire
this is my first book by this author and I LOVED it, Seanan created an amazing character and a world that bursts with imagination and humour, I loved every single page and cannot wait for the next book in the series, if you're looking for an urban fantasy with a twist this is the book for you
