Books Purchased

Well, I never thought I'd see the day....
In March, hubby and I moved to
a new apartment, and I have
limited room for printed books now...
so I've been buying Kindle books!
Me, the diehard bibliophile!
 So here they are.....

 If there is one thing eighteen-year-old Aurora Sky wants, it’s to get off the iceberg she calls home. Being kissed before she graduates wouldn’t hurt either.

Then a near-fatal car wreck changes everything. Government agents step in and save Aurora’s life in exchange for her services as a vampire hunter. In Alaska. Basically she’s a glorified chew toy. All thanks to her rare blood type, which sends a vampire into temporary paralysis right before she has to finish the job… by hand.

Now Aurora’s only friends are groupies of the undead and the only boy she can think about may very well be a vampire. And if he’s a vampire, will she be forced to kill him?

When nineteen year-old Lili McIntyre decides to trade in her California summer for a mid-winter visit to Australia, it's in hope of finding inspiration and direction in the country where her father was born.

But when she arrives in Melbourne, the first thing she finds is the last thing she's looking for--a brooding man who makes her heart race every time she sees him.

Against her better judgement, Lili finds herself drawn into a relationship that tests her very beliefs about life, reality and fantasy. But the real test is how to follow her destiny as she faces some of the hardest decisions of her life.

Kidnapped by the handsome young vampire Nikoli, eighteen year old Claire discovers she holds the relic capable of resurrecting the most dangerous vampire in history. She should be repulsed by her kidnapper, but instead she's irresistibly drawn to him-and he to her as well. Claire wants to explore their feelings for each other but Nikoli resists, worried their romance will distract him from his part in the dangerous task at hand.

Together they must seek the help of the Gypsy Queen Renka in order to destroy the relic. Their lives are on the line as they travel across the globe in search of Renka and her Gypsies while safeguarding the relic from those who would use it to resurrect their Master.

Twenty-three-year-old Jancie Sadler was out of the room when her mother died, and her heart still longs for their lost goodbye. Aching to ease her sorrow, Aunt Starla gives Jancie a diary that changes her entire life. In entries from the 1930s, her great grandmother revealed how she coped with her own painful loss by seeking out a witch from nearby Coon Hollow Coven. The witch wore the griever’s moonstone locket, which allowed whoever could unlock its enchantment to talk with the dead.

 A modern day tale of romance, mystery, and witches.

When shy, eighteen-year-old Kendra meets the new guy at school, Tyler, she can't help but be drawn to his irresistible charms. Later, she agrees to visit his family's new shop, Secrets, and is drawn into a world that takes her breath away. Unfortunately, where magic reigns, so does danger, and she is forced into an adventure that leaves her racing against the clock to stop an evil curse.

They say a soul is the immaterial essence, the animating principal, the actuating cause of an individual life.

But what if you had to share yours with the one person you hated the most?

The soul mate principal states that for every one soul there is another that will recognize its match, hence creating the perfect union.

But what if you had two soul mates, which would you choose?

What if your choices had eternal ramification?

Received For Review

*** This is the ‘Adapted for Young Adult Reader’ version of TRINITY STONES (The Angelorum Twelve Chronicles #1) ***

Angel Paranormal Romantic Suspense / Urban Fantasy. First book in a four-part series. No cliffhangers.

Anxiety-ridden New York investment banker, Cara Collins, has little to smile about on her 27th birthday between a hostile work environment and her impossible romantic situation with her longtime friend and first love, Dr. Kai Solomon. But before the day ends, she learns she has inherited $50 million—a windfall that must remain secret or risk the lives of those close to her.

As Cara unravels the truth surrounding her inheritance, she makes a startling discovery: angels walk among the living, and they’re getting ready to engage in a battle that will determine the future of the human race. In the midst of these revelations, she meets mysterious and sophisticated Simon Young, who offers her the promise of romance for the first time since Kai.

  1. Yay for Kindle Books. I got the more adult version of the L.G Connor books, I met her a few months ago at a Lady Jane's Salon. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.

  2. Hi, Grace!

    Yeah, now I have to read Kindle more room on my bookshelves! Lol.

    I have the adult version of "Trinity Stones", too -- it's a trade paperback, and I LOVE it! But I'm glad to have the Kindle Y a version, as well. I want to read it and compare with the adult edition. O'Connor sent me the YA edition.

    WOW, you actually MET her?! You are the LUCKIEST book blogger I Know!!!

    Thanks so much for commenting back!! : )

  3. I know what you mean when you say no room for more books. I have a whole room for them, and it's still not enough. lol

    Also, kindle books helps me not feel so guilty when my tbr pile grows out of proportion. :)

    Great haul! Happy Reading!!

  4. I have heard really good things about the Aurora Sky books. Hope you enjoy it and happy reading!

  5. Hi, Stacey!

    I agree that buying Kindle books help one feel less guilty for adding more and more to the TBR pile! Lol. And they're all out of sight, too, sitting either on a Kindle, or, as in my case, on the Kindle app. for my Android phone.

    I still prefer physical books, of course!! And I totally refuse to pay more than $4.99 for a Kindle book. I've seen some of them -- especially nonfiction books -- priced as high as $30.00 and over! For that amount of money, I expect to get a PHYSICAL book, and not a mere download. I find this ridiculous in the extreme!! After all, a download is a download. What makes one more expensive than another?

    Anyway....thanks for commenting back!! : )

  6. Hi, Teresa!

    Oh, you have? GREAT!! I trust your judgement, so now I know I'll enjoy this novel!
