Myra is so busy taking care of everyone in her family, that she doesn’t even think about herself — until her boyfriend dumps her and suddenly, more than anything, she wants to beat him for a spot on a research trip to the Galapagos Islands…
The Education of Hailey Kendrick by Eileen Cook is a journey of self-discovery, in the form of a life spiraling out of control. Going along on her adventure, and her romance, is a ton of fun!
The premise of this book both intrigued and repelled me. People choosing to pay big bucks to marry a stranger? Even with the year of marriage counseling and the foundation in friendship rather than love, I was skeptical of the whole affair. I mean, I like to read romance novels. And I didn’t really see how this was going to turn out satisfying for any of us, the readers or the characters.
His Grace Roman Montagu has just woken up, completely terrified, and tied to the rail of a ship named The Drake during a terrible storm –and the arrival of the Countess of Derby on the deck quickly takes things from bad to worse! Pick up this historical romance set in the Regency England, where Prinny himself makes a cameo appearance to twist the plot. The Art of Duke Hunting is a highly recommended and very enjoyable sensual historical romance.
The Anti-Prom by Abby McDonald is a hilarious adventure caper that takes place on that night of all memorable high school nights — prom night.
