Finding You (Candellanos Book 1)

by Maureen Child

“An absolutely wonderful contemporary romance. A delightful blend of humor and emotion.” – Kristin Hannah on Finding You

After tragedy struck, Carla Candellano retreated from an elite search and rescue squad to her hometown, where she’s safe from everything except her Italian mama’s meddling. When a handsome stranger moves in next door, Carla can’t help being drawn to Jackson Wyatt and the silent child at his side.

Reese hasn’t spoken since her mother died, so Jackson brought her to Chandler in hopes that the beach-town charm would bring back the laughing little girl she once was. This is not the time for the strongest desire he’s ever felt. He should be focused on Reese, not falling for the beautiful woman next door. But how can he stay away when his precious daughter soaks in the affection of Carla and the close-knit Candellanos? And when his own heart begins to feel again for the first time in a very long time?

Over one passionate summer, Carla and Jackson will discover that no matter where you try to hide, destiny has a way of finding you.

A few maimed bodies with strange marks are found on the outskirts of Tokyo.

Winter’s Fury (The Furyck Saga: Book 1)

by A.E. Rayne

If you’re a fan of Game of Thrones or Vikings, you’re going to love this! 

‘â?¦ A.E Rayne’s writing is simply astounding. I put her right up there with Sarah J. Maasâ?¦ and George R. R. Martin.’ ~ Reviewer 

‘This was a totally gripping read, from start to finish, I didn’t want to put it downâ?¦ If you like historical fantasy, you’ll love this book’ ~ Reviewer 

Winter’s Fury is the enthralling first book in this epic fantasy series by A.E. Rayne. Enter a world of kingdoms and warriors, of dreamers and dark magic. Follow an unstoppable warrior as she claws her way to power and uncovers the destiny that awaits her. 

Despite her reputation as Brekka’s greatest warrior, without her father to protect her, Jael Furyck was merely a pawn; a woman to be married off so her uncle could forge an alliance to fulfil his own desperate ambitions. 

Eadmund Skalleson was broken, tortured by the death of his first wife, but his father had lost patience with him. He wanted heirs for his kingdom. He wanted his son back, restored to the fierce warrior he had once been. And when his daughter had a dream about Jael, he jumped at the opportunity to make an alliance with his worst enemy. 

Jael and Eadmund will fight against their union, but the dreamers know that this marriage is meant to be. It must happen for the sake of Osterland. For without them – without Jael and her sword, without Eadmund by her side – the five kingdoms will not survive the darkness that is coming to claim them all.

Note: This book contains adult themes and mature content

‘â?¦ what an absolutely fantastic book!!! I loved all the characters especially Jael and the world building along with the multiple view points is mind blowing!!!!!’ ~ Reviewer

‘… Jael makes a great kick-but heroine and she is truly a likeable person!! It was enjoyable to have a story that was so well thought out and all you could wonder about was so completely answered for this part of the story. This is not a ‘quick’ read…there were twice the amount of pages to this book than most books have!! It has been a long time since I have read such a complete story!!! I definitely recommend it as a very good and worthwhile read!!!’ ~ Reviewer

‘I loved this book! I could see all the characters in such detail and the story draws you in in such a way as you can’t wait to find out what happens next. This book has so much in it from tragedy, triumph, fears, and strength. The evil characters that you really hate and just want to see them suffer shows how well written they were. I’m sure I will be reading the rest of the series and I would LOVE to see this brought to life as a series of movies or tv series.’ ~ Reviewer

Set in 1625, “The Three Musketeers” recounts the adventures of a young man named d’Artagnan after he leaves home to travel to Paris, to join the Musketeers of the Guard.

The Vicomte de Bragelonne, Louise de la Vallière and The Man in the Iron Mask are set between 1660 and 1667 against the background of the transformation of Louis XIV from child monarch to Sun King.
Alexandre Dumas, père (1802-1870) was a French writer whose works have been translated into nearly 100 languages and he is one of the most widely read French authors. His most famous works are The Count of Monte Cristo and The Three Musketeers.

The Cossacks

by Leo Tolstoy

Olenin was a youth who had never completed his university course, never served anywhere (having only a nominal post in some government office or other), who had squandered half his fortune and had reached the age of twenty-four without having done anything or even chosen a career. He was what in Moscow society is termed un jeune homme. But he did find a career — he took a post as a Cadet in the army, and ended up assigned to Transcaucasia. This is the place — here among the Tatars, the Chechens, and the Old Believers — this is the place where Olenin will find love in the arms of a beautiful Cossack girl — a young woman who is promised to a Cossack warrior.



Nirvana

by Alexis Cñe

When Nirvana Lynn James’ life is turned upside down by a heartbreaking confession of a classmate, the last thing she expects to find is love.

In the midst of Nirvana trying to piece her life together, Roland Watson finds himself trying to piece her heart together. Problem is, time is not on their side.

Just as quickly as Nirvana receives Roland, she loses him and is left to sort out the heartache that landed her in the arms of Roland along with the hurt of losing him. Pair that with trying to make a name for herself in a city she quickly made enemies in, Nirvana finds herself in some life changing situations.

Only God can turn this mess into a masterpiece, and Nirvana can only hope and pray that peace, love, and Roland will find her again.



The Count of Monte Cristo

by Alexandre Dumas

The Count of Monte Cristo (French: Le Comte de Monte-Cristo) is an adventure novel by Alexandre Dumas, père. It is often considered, along with The Three Musketeers, as Dumas’ most popular work. It is also among the highest selling books of all time. The writing of the work was completed in 1844. Like many of his novels, it is expanded from the plot outlines suggested by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet.

The story takes place in France, Italy, islands in the Mediterranean and the Levant during the historical events of 1815-1838 (from just before the Hundred Days through the reign of Louis-Philippe of France). The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. It is primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, forgiveness and death, and is told in the style of an adventure story.
