Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga @ Tynga’s Reviews.
This is my third week with Stacking the Shelves and I have more books to share that have been received for review or bought.
For review: Last week I received a copy of Dreamless, book two in the Starcrossed series by Josephine Angelini. I’ve had Starcrossed (#1) sitting on my TBR shelf for quite some time now so it was the perfect opportunity to get it down and read it. I started reading it over the weekend and I’m already sensing some Twilight similarities… but we’ll see how it progresses.
Helen needs to get through hell in two ways: by night they reflected the underworld, even worse torments her day that Lucas and they may possibly love. In the underworld, Helen meets Orion. The more time they spend together, the closer they come to. Then something totally unexpected happens, the forces calculated for holding and Lucas Orion: The four houses are combined and Scion, a new Trojan war seems inevitable!
Bought: I visited my local secondhand book exchange over the weekend and couldn’t help but pick up a couple of bargain buys. I’ve read quite a few titles by Melissa Nathan and when I saw Persuading Annie for just $2 I couldn’t resist! I was also intrigued by the Heart of the Outback volume 1 with three Aussie novellas in one. I don’t read much Mills & Boon but I a couple of quick rural romance stories couldn’t be passed by! It contains these three stories: The Australian’s Convenient Bride by Lindsay Armstrong, Outback Marriage by Meredith Webber and Her Outback Knight by Melissa James.
I needed a couple of easy, quick reads to take overseas, so these ones are now in the running to be fit into my backpack.
Meet Annie Markham. Gentle, sweet and kind. Except for her dark side. A dark side called Jake Mead. Seven years ago he’d been her entire world, even though her godmother had tried to persuade her to dump him. But when the going got tough, Annie’s tough got going. Jake’s hasty departure from her life proved that a) godmothers are cleverer than they look and b) the only thing reliable about men is that they’re totally unreliable.
Now Jake is back in her life. And he’s the one man who may just save her family’s ailing company. But what Annie doesn’t know is that Jake has an Achilles heel. An Achilles heel called Annie Markham. He’s never quite got over her treatment of him all those years ago. This is the perfect opportunity for what some may call closure. But what Jake calls, revenge.
