It has been a strange week – the coldest March in fifty years, followed by an April which so far is not shaping up much better. We still have a huge block of ice in our back garden, all that is left of a snowman we built two weeks ago, which has yet to melt! With the Easter break and children in full swing I am a little behind with my reading. However, I have a cunning plan to find a suitable spot to hide in and settle down with my Kindle!
This coming week I plan to travel back in time to the wilds of Medieval Northumbria with Samantha Holt’s latest release, Borderland Bride (The Borderland Legacy Book 1). The book tells the tale of Lady Isabel, who after a brutal attack, which results in her losing her voice and hearing, is rescued by Jake, a brooding knight and taken back to the home of his charismatic brother Dominic. With secrets and intrigue afoot, it promises to be a sensuous tale that I am looking forward to reading.
I also plan to read Eve Rabi’s Gringa – In the Clutches of a Ruthless Drug Lord, which was an Amazon bestseller last year. The tale, comprising books 1-4, tells of Peyton, a young American, who is blackmailed into becoming the woman of a Mexican drug lord Diablo, and is compelled to go and live with him and his madcap family. This is a book for mature readers only and the book blurb implies that is not a sweet romance. The excerpt that I have read also contained a great deal of humour and I am intrigued as to how the tale will pan out. I like an alpha hero and I sometimes like my heroes to be a little bit mean, or maybe even anti-heroes, so I am drawn to this book, which I think will take me on a wild ride!
We are always very interested in what our readers are reading too. If you want to tell us of any good books you have read recently or ones that you are looking forward to we’d really welcome your thoughts.
