Mailbox Monday #32

Mailbox Monday is hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page and (I know from experience) will lead to massive TBR piles.

I am happy to have something to contribute this week. My mailbox has been very quiet for the last few.

From Swaptree I received The Last Great Dance on Earth by Sandra Gulland (don't worry Lucy, I have the second one coming from PaperBackSwap, so in about a week I will finally have them all, now to just have the time to read them).

I also received 2 books for review from publicist Phenix&Phenix:

Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart by Beth Pattillo

"Claire Prescott is a sensible woman who believes in facts and figures, not fairy tales. But when she agrees to present a paper to a summer symposium at Oxford on her ailing sisters behalf, Claire finds herself thrown into an adventure with a gaggle of Jane Austen-loving women all on the lookout for their Mr. Darcy. Claire isn’t looking for Mr. Anyone. She's been dating Neil, a nice — if a bit negligent— sports fanatic. But when a tall, dark and dashing stranger crosses her path, will the staid Claire suddenly discover her inner romantic heroine. Her chance meeting with a mysterious woman who claims to have an early version of Austen’s Pride and Prejudice — in which Lizzie ends up with someone other than Fitzwilliam Darcy — leads to an astounding discovery about the venerated author’s own struggle to find the right hero for Lizzie Bennett Neil's unexpected arrival in Oxford complicates Claire's journey to finding her own romantic lead. Mr. Darcy Broke My Heart is the story of a woman who finds that love isn't logical and that a true hero can appear in the most unexpected of places" (from Beth Pattillo's website)

The Revolutionary Paul Revere by Joel J. Miller (non-fiction)
"The story of Paul Revere is the story of the American Revolution. Always smack dab in the thick of things, he was an ordinary citizen living in extraordinarily turbulent times. Revere played key roles in colonial tax fights and riots, the aftermath of the infamous Boston Massacre, the Tea Party, the Battle of Lexington and Concord, and even the ratification of the U.S. Constitution. In this fast-paced, dramatic account, Paul Revere’s life pulses with energy as it explores his family and church life along with his revolutionary contribution as
a spy, entrepreneur, express rider, freemason, and commercial visionary" (from Joel J. Miller's website).
Did you have a good Mailbox this week?

    CAPTIVE OF SIN by Anna Campbell from Romantic Crush Junkies.
