Heir to Edenbrooke (A Prequel Novelette) by Julianne Donaldson-Review

Product Details:

  • Title: Heir to Edenbrooke; A Prequel Novelette
  • Author: Julianne Donaldson
  • File Size: 449 KB
  • Print Length: 53 pages
  • Publisher: Shadow Mountain (November 17, 2015)
  • Publication Date: November 17, 2015
  • Sold by: Amazon Digital Services, Inc.
  • Language: English
  • ASIN: B0182T9IBW
  • FTC, FYI: I received a review e-copy in exchange for an honest review. 

Book Description:  
Philip Wyndham has never envied his older brother for being the heir to Edenbrooke. He would much rather carve out his own destiny than live under the constraints of that position. But when his older brother dies unexpectedly, Philip's life is turned upside down as duty requires him to give up the life he planned. Philip takes on his new role as the most sought-after bachelor in London with alternating reluctance, boredom, and resentment. But all that changes the night fate leads him to an inn, where he meets the incomparable Marianne Daventry.

My Review:
This novelette from Philip's perspective is so wonderful, I just wish, along with all of Julianne Donaldson's other fans, that this had been a full length novel. Edenbrooke quickly became one of my favorite novels after I read it a few years ago. I was so excited to know that we would get a look at this story from Philip's viewpoint. It was so great to be taken back to the wonderful world found in Edenbrooke. 

It was interesting to "meet" the Philip "pre-Marianne" and see what a hard job she really had in turning him around. After reading Heir to Edenbrooke it made me fall in love with this fabulous character all over again. Please realize if you've never read a novelette before, it is a short read and not a full length novel. Don't disappoint yourself by going into this thinking there is more than there is: there's only 53 pages, but boy do they pay off. 

If you are a fan of Edenbrooke, you will love this closer look into the man who not only stole Marianne's heart, but also yours I'm willing to bet. Julianne Donaldson delivers on this prequel look at Edenbrooke.

My Review:
Just knowing that you are going to read anything written by Sarah M. Eden is something I truly look forward to. This anthology is composed of six stories all written by only her. (Her work has been included with other anthologies and authors) They all have a clean romance behind them in a historical setting. Some of the stories have been in other anthologies, but there are two new stories included. Even with having read some of them before, this still was an incredible read. Sarah knows how to write characters you care about quickly. I also love the witty dialogue that is found by many of her characters. Of course there is tension and outward obstacles that stand in the way of the prospective couples, but thank goodness there is that inevitable change of heart.

My favorite stories were A Happy Beginning and The Road to Cavan Town. Both of the stories had couples where the woman liked a man who did not return her love at first. But in the end, love wins out and these sweet romances have happy endings. The best part about reading anthologies is that you can read one and then come back hours later and read another and not have to remember what was read hours earlier. If you haven't caught on to this very popular trend of anthologies with the short stories, you must give them a try. They are especially great for people who are busy and don't have a lot of time to read. Most of these stories are only 6-8 chapters long.
I have loved reading Sarah Eden's full length novels and almost wish that some of these characters could have been in a regular length novel. Just know, that if you have enjoyed her other books, you must give this anthology a read to experience more of this authors great writing.

Wasted Time by Mya O'Malley-Book Blast and $50 Giveaway

Wasted time mya
Wasted Time by Mya O'Malley 
Do you believe that some souls are destined to be together, even through hardship and deceit? After 9-11, Declan’s heart is torn between wanting to stay with Morgan and needing to fight for his beloved country. Knowing that the future may be uncertain, he kisses his fiancée goodbye and focuses on his mission until that dark day from which he will never fully recover. Injured in Afghanistan, Declan has lost more than part of his leg; he’s lost part of himself, now plagued in grief and guilt. How could he possibly ask Morgan to take care of him for the rest of his life, being nothing but a burden to her? Which would be more heartbreaking, feigning his own death or bringing her unhappiness every day? If only he could eradicate her from his mind and be at peace with his decision. Morgan prays day and night for Declan’s safe return, but when his letters stop coming, Morgan knows in her heart that she has lost him forever. Morgan has a hard time believing in fate and destiny after her fiancé is taken from her. With Declan gone, Morgan’s hope for true love is destroyed, but eventually she finds comfort in the arms of another, even though Morgan’s new love knows that her heart belongs to Declan. Will Morgan eventually be able to move on, or will Declan haunt her dreams forever?

  Her face was the only thing that had kept him sane during his deployment. At this moment, however, thoughts of Morgan had been pushed to the side for reasons of pure survival. Declan wiped the mud from his eye with a swift movement of his hand, just quick enough so that he could see again. Booming thunder went off near and far. Swearing under his breath, Declan closed one eye and squinted the other shut as he spied his target. Breathe. One, two, three… he could do this. The first time he’d had to shoot another man he had faltered, hesitated only the briefest of seconds, during which time the man escaped his line of sight and shot a fellow soldier in the leg, causing serious injury. This time, Declan concentrated, aimed his M4 rifle, and fired. The distinct thud of a man dropping to the ground confirmed the target had been hit. Swiping at the sweat in his eyes from the sweltering mid-day heat, Declan gulped and struggled to his knees. Lining up his rifle again, his neck and shoulders ached with fatigue. He bit down and gritted his teeth, tasting dirt while fighting off the pain. It seemed as if hours had gone by, when in fact, it had probably only been minutes when finally the haunting sound of gunfire ceased. Not one to trust silence in any setting, Declan mentally counted upward until he reached near fifty. “All clear,” his buddy, Sean, called out. “All clear.” Declan, always cautious, still maintained his position until he heard his fellow soldiers from his platoon begin to speak. Peeking up from his ravine, Declan rose slowly to his feet as the rifle was pressed to his side. Surveying the damage, it appeared that several of their enemies were lying still on the ground. The man he had shot lay still, appearing lifeless. Another man lay several feet away. It seemed the enemies had taken off, deserting the boundaries of the mountainous terrain of Afghanistan. His platoon mates fell silent, all business as they quickly gathered their belongings to head back to base. Declan clutched his rifle, drawing closer to his victim. Curiosity had gotten the best of him. Fully aware of his previous actions, Declan stepped even closer. He had never killed a man before — injured, yes, but never killed. This man did not appear to be alive. His heart sped up as sweat caused his fatigues to cling to his body. For God’s sake, the man looked to have been only in his early twenties at best. What have I done? What are we doing here? Waves of nausea rose and Declan swallowed hard. “Hey! Step back!” Sean called out. “Move out! I repeat, move out!” Hearing his friend call out to him, Declan turned toward the sound of his voice, realizing his mistake seconds too late. He should have known better; he should have. But no amount of training can prepare you for taking another man’s life. Glancing swiftly at Sean through tear-stained eyes, he saw the movement in his peripheral vision. Sean raced to the open dirt road. They were sitting ducks, in plain sight. The man that Declan had presumed dead, the one he had shot, raised his own rifle and fired at Sean, who dropped instantly to ground. “No! No!” Declan spun his head back to the imminent threat, a moment too late. The force of the explosion knocked him to the ground in an instant. Morgan’s face was the last thing that registered in his mind as another shot fired, leaving his world black.   ****   Clouds scattered overhead, cries of gulls bringing back another time, a different memory, sitting here with Declan by her side. Morgan squeezed her jaw, fighting back the pain. Months later, there was still no word from Declan. On the Internet, she had searched out his name relentlessly but there was no mention of Declan, no death certificates and his name couldn’t be found on any list of casualties of the war. It was as if he had simply disappeared, but that wasn’t possible and she feared the worst. He was gone and there was no closure for Morgan, as his only living relatives were his mom and some family living on the west coast, whom Declan hadn’t seen in years. Even she and Declan’s old friend, Stephen seemed to be losing touch. She could sit on this beach and watch the water forever; it was a place Declan had cherished, a place she felt close to him. Never again would her life be the same without Declan Blake. How was she going to make it without him? The world was quiet and without joy for Morgan. Even Morgan’s mother nagged her to speak with a therapist. She didn’t see the purpose of smiling or laughing when it was all forced. Constant thoughts of Declan plagued her day and night. Morgan nearly jumped when her cell rang. First instincts were to let the call go to voicemail, but she knew the person calling would only persist. That’s how it had been lately; she would ignore phone calls only to find tons of messages waiting. It was Elle, calling for the second time that day. “Hi, Elle.” “Where have you been? I’ve been trying to call you for hours,” Elle exclaimed. “I don’t know, I’m just hanging out.” “Down by the river again?” Elle inquired. “Yup,” Morgan responded as she moved her foot around in the sand. “Figured as much.” Elle’s voice sounded odd, almost as if she were hearing her close by. Morgan turned to see her friend walking toward her on the grassy path leading to the small beach. Rising to her feet, Morgan felt tears escape. Elle was by her side, arms wrapped around her within moments. Morgan released Elle and took a small step back. “Oh, Elle, what am I going to do?” she sobbed. “You’re going to live, dammit. Declan would want you to be happy.” “How? How can I forget about him, just move on?” It wasn’t possible, she had tried, and it just wasn’t working. Even when she was at work, she was just going through the motions; she did her job, but her heart wasn’t the same. “I think it’s time for you to see someone to talk about all of this. You’ve waited long enough.” She was right and so was her mother, believe it or not. “I will, Elle. I will because I don’t know what else to do.” “Morgan, you’re the strongest person I know. You have so much happiness and love to share. I have full confidence in you. You’re going to make it and come out stronger in the end.” Elle spoke through her own tears. “Thanks, Elle. I love you.” Morgan felt better knowing there was someone on her side rooting for her.

Roman's Holiday by Susan Aylworth-Book Blast and $50 Giveaway

Roman's holiday cover
  Roman's Holiday by Susan Aylworth
Four years after Roman Kincaid was catapulted into stardom as a country-western singer and A-list movie star, he is burned out: exhausted by a grueling schedule, drained by the ceaseless demands of producers and managers, weary of meeting the needs of others at the expense of his own. Leaving a sold-out show in Phoenix, he rents a car and drives north and east, landing in the Painted Desert town of Rainbow Rock.

Nearly three years after leaving her old life behind, Lottie Beale is feeding people and baking pies, managing the Kachina Café and tending secrets of her own. When circumstances conspire to give two attractive people some time alone together amid the world-class vistas of the Four Corners, they discover more than either had bargained for.

 “Ro-man! Ro-man!” A capacity crowd in the Ak-Chin Pavilion chanted his name under the starry desert sky, but Roman Kincaid barely heard it. He stood in the stage wings, gearing up for an encore and wondering when his dream had become a nightmare. “Okay, guys,” he said to his back-up band via their ear buds. “One encore only. Let’s do ‘Gamble.’ Start with the chorus.” He took two steps toward the stage entrance, swinging his guitar into playing position. Sam, his manager, caught his elbow. “Are you sure about this? That crowd adores you. You could probably play three encores, sell more CDs—” “No.” Roman left no room for argument. “One and done. And no backstage stuff, either. I’m outta here.” He took a deep breath, pasted on the same fake, crowd-pleasing smile he’d used in the last half-dozen shows, and jogged back onto the stage to the roar of twenty thousand excited voices. He strummed the intro and launched into the chorus of his first number-one hit: “Love is such a gamble. You break a new deck every time. Sometimes you’re dealt the aces; Others you draw to nines. But when I met you, I knew it was true. A winning hand you seemed. Now I have the rush of a royal flush. You are the gamble of my dreams.” The crowd cheered wildly as he played his way through the music he now sang in his sleep. In fact, he realized as he watched fans taking up the beat and clapping along, that was pretty much what he was doing now. He struggled to suppress a yawn during the guitar interlude as he turned to acknowledge his band. I spent my early life dreaming of a crowd like this. When did performing start to feel like a chore? He put the thought away. Lately he’d been thinking of times when he’d heard of some celebrity being hospitalized for exhaustion and assumed it was a euphemism for drug rehab. Now he wondered. When was the last time I felt truly rested? The question was an imponderable. Months, at least. He hit the last chord and took a deep bow, then shouted, “Thank you, Phoenix!” and dashed off-stage.

The Mannequin: A Victorian Romance by S.G. Rogers- Review

Product Details:
  • Title: The Mannequin: A Victorian Romance
  • Author: S.G. Rogers
  • File Size: 1128 KB
  • Print Length: 219 pages
  • Publisher: Idunn Court Publishing (September 3, 2015)
  • Publication Date: September 3, 2015
  • Sold by: Amazon Digital Services, Inc.
  • Language: English
  • ASIN: B013F08MP6
  • FTC, FYI: I received a review e-copy in exchange for an honest review.

Book Description:
 Aubrey Whittingham lost everything when his family drowned in a ferryboat accident, including the will to live. His neighbor Rosamund tries desperately to bring him back from the brink of despair, but the beastly young duke fights her every step of the way. His feelings for her deepen, and when she departs for London, he vows to regain his health and woo her properly. Unfortunately, she disappears before he has the chance.

Rosamund is admired and praised as a mannequin for an exclusive London modiste, but her life is empty without the man to whom she gave her heart. Now, just when happiness seems within her grasp, jealous rivals conspire to ruin her dreams.

Can a beastly duke and a beautiful mannequin ever achieve a fairytale ending?

“The best physicians in London can’t find anything wrong with him physically, but his emotional state is extraordinarily precarious,” the vicar said. “He recently lost his entire family in a ferryboat accident, and he’s become dangerously withdrawn. He won’t speak, barely eats, and takes no pleasure in anything. He’s wasting away, and his grandmother is worried he’ll die. I called on him myself and found him quite unresponsive. I’m not sure he can be reached, if truth be told.”

“Why, of course I’ll visit the lad, but I’ve no experience with this sort of thing.”

“He’s actually a young man of twenty-two, and here is the sticking point; if you accept this position, you can say nothing about his condition whatsoever, to anyone. Discretion is critical, and secrecy paramount. If anyone inquires, you may tell your family and friends only that you’ve accepted a position as companion to the grandmother. Do you think you can do that?”

She gulped. “Yes.”

“Considering who you are, Miss Ashfield, I believe you’re uniquely qualified to take on this challenge.”

“I’ll try my best to justify your faith in me, Mr. Preston.”

The vicar gave her a piercing look. “I give you one piece of advice. Wounded animals are often injurious toward the people who try to rescue them.”

Her eyes widened. “Should I be concerned for my safety?”

“Only here.” He tapped the center of his chest, over his heart. “Stay true to yourself, and all will be well.”

Although she didn’t completely understand the vicar, her curiosity was aroused at the deepest level, and a fountainhead of compassion was unleashed.
“I’ll attempt to help this poor man in any way I can.” She gave Mr. Preston a crooked grin. “You knew I wouldn’t be able to resist, didn’t you?”

“I had an inkling you might be easily persuaded. At two o’clock tomorrow afternoon, report to Arbor Lodge. You’ll keep the same schedule, six days a week, excepting Sundays, of course.”

“Arbor Lodge?” Rosamund’s eyebrows lifted. “Why, that’s…” she trailed off.

“Yes, it is. Now you understand the need for secrecy. If anyone in society guesses that the Duke of Swanhaven has lost his mind, the family name will be forevermore ruined.”

My Review:
  The Mannequin: A Victorian Romance by S.G. Rogers is one of those books that so easily sweeps you into the story that you have a hard time leaving. I easily fell in love with the main character, Rosamund. This humble and genteel girl, orphaned and mistreated by her aunt and cousins of The Gribbles family, is very likable. You start cheering her on from the start. It has a very Cinderella feel to it as she is treated as one of the servants by her own kin.

When the Gribbles leave for a season in London, Rosamund is left to find work and left all alone. The vicar finds her a job with a Duchess, whose grandson, Aubrey is living in a lonely, miserable and silent world. His parents and younger sister were killed in a ferry accident and he was the only survivor in his family. The Duchess hires Rosamund to come and keep the Duke of Swanhaven company and try and draw him out of his "shell". The chemistry between Rosamund and Aubrey is apparent from the start. She brings him back to life and Aubrey is somewhat of a beast in his behavior. Soon they can't deny their attraction to one another. 

This is only the beginning of the story as side stories of family betrayal, feuds and ultimate triumph in love keep this novel continually moving. Rosamund is such a strong character who despite the constant verbal bashing from her cousins and outright bad luck that seems to follow her, she keeps a stiff upper lip. I also loved to see the full turnaround of Aubrey when he realizes who he wants and won't let anything stop him. The side characters of Aubrey's grandmother The Duchess, Rosamund's cousin Vivian, her dear friend Joe, and the dashing Lord Henley are all such strong characters that contribute much to the novel's appeal.

This wonderful romance was a pure delight to read! With such a great story and colorful characters laced throughout, The Mannequin will become a favorite of Historical romance readers.

That Girl, Darcy: A Pride and Prejudice Story by James Ramos-Book Blast and Giveaway of a Kindle Fire or $50 Gift Card

That Girl, Darcy: A Pride and Prejudice Story 
by James Ramos 
  IT IS A TRUTH UNIVERSALLY ACKNOWLEDGED that geeky guys never get to date the pretty girls with permanent scowls. To Elliott Bennett, life is simple. It’s all parties, skateboarding, and arguing over who would win in a fight between Hulk and Superman with his friends. It’s his senior year, and he wants nothing more than to soak up his final year of freedom before real life begins. That is, until Darcy Fitzwilliam and her best friend Bridget move in to the only mansion in the neighborhood. When Elliott meets Darcy at a party, he finds out that she isn’t into skateboarding (which he lives for), she hates science fiction (which he loves), and she thinks his friends are a pack of morons (which, honestly, might be half true)—and yet, there’s something irritatingly intriguing about her. When Elliott’s cousin Jake starts to date her friend Bridget, it complicates Elliott’s plans to ignore the scowling Darcy for the rest of the year. Why is Darcy so . . . ugh? Elliott doesn’t know, but for some reason, is determined to find out—even if she doesn’t know the difference between Star Trek and Star Wars.
