Holy cow this was a ridiculous week in my mailbox - mostly the virtual one!!! And I have a bunch of holiday ones coming up to read in December (hopefully)! Also, I purchased a new Kindle the past
Wow that's a lot! I went though a little bit of a crazed historical romance grab up this week. Just a little.
- Dare to Love Again by Julie Lessman (book 2 in the Heart of San Francisco series) - I haven't read any of her novels yet, but I love the covers and can't wait to read this one either. Purchased for my Kindle.
- Love on the Line by Deeanne Gist - I have been collecting her novels recently and this is one of them. Purchased for my Kindle.
- Plots & Pans by Kelly EIleen Hake - I came across this author on Facebook and then the majority of her books were on discount on Kindle, so I grabbed up a bunch of them! Purchased for my Kindle.
- Rugged and Relentless by Kelly Eileen Hake (Husbands for Hire book 1) - another Hake novel, set in the American West. Purchased for my Kindle. This series is about a group of women who are looking for husbands to help them establish a sawmill.
- Strong and Stubborn by Kelly Eileen Hake (Husbands for Hire book 3) - Purchased for my Kindle.
- Tall, Dark, and Determined by Kelly Eileen Hake (Husbands for Hire book 2) - Purchased for my Kindle.
- The Bride Backfire by Kelly Eileen Hake (Prairie Promise book 2) - Purchased for my Kindle.
- The Bride Bargain by Kelly Eileen Hake (Prairie Promise book 1) - Purchased for my Kindle.
- The Bride Blunder by Kelly Eileen Hake (Prairie Promise book 3) - Purchased for my Kindle.
- The Lavender Garden by Lucinda Riley - More of a straight historical novel - but I DO love this cover! Purchased for my Kindle.
I also started buying the books in the 12 Brides of Christmas historical romance novel series. They are releasing a new title every Monday beginning at the start of October through Christmas. I have already pre-ordered the rest of the series so they arrive of release day. These are nice short stories, so I might actually manage to read them this Christmas season. You can check out the whole series on their website. The stories are all written by some favorite historical romance novelists.
- The Advent Bride by Mary Connealy (Book 1 of 12 Brides of Christmas) - Purchased for my Kindle
- The Nutcracker Bride by Margaret Brownley (Book 2 of 12 Brides of Christmas) - Purchased for my Kindle
- The Evergreen Bride by Pam Hillman (Book 3 of 12 Brides of Christmas) - Purchased for my Kindle
- The Gift-Wrapped Bride by Maureen Lang (Book 4 of 12 Brides of Christmas) - Purchased for my Kindle
Additionally, I picked up a couple more historical romance Christmas stories, but a part of the series called Hope for the Holidays Historical Collection. I think some of these stories fit into the other series' written by the authors in this collection. I know Lessman's novel fits into her O'Connor series (which is really why I bought the series). The books in this series include:
- Sophie's Other Daughter by Mary Connealy
- A Town Called Christmas by Ruth Logan Hearne
- Designs on Love by Myra Johnson
- A Whisper of Hope by Julie Lessman
A couple books I picked up for review via Netgalley:
- My Days with Princess Grace of Monaco by Joan Dale - I don't actually know much about her, so I am interested in hearing about her from someone she knew well.
- Ruth's Journey by Donald McCraig - I have seen some mixed reviews on this one. I have only seen Gone with the Wind once, and that was quite recently. So I'm interested in checking this one out and giving it a shot.
- The Barefoot Queen by Ildefonso Falcones - The settings in this novel are so exotic and unique!
- The Kennedy Wives by Amber Hunt and David Batcher - As with many people, I am fascinated by the Kennedy's.
- The Paris Winter by Imogen Robertson - Another one of those covers I have been eyeing for awhile.
And finally, one that I won as a giveaway on another blog:
- This is How I'd Love You by Hazel Woods - another gorgeous cover!
Ok, that is more than enough from me, how about you?
