The Heir
The Heir by Grace Burrowes
A debut novel by a rising star with remarkable characters, intriguing plots, and settings of fascinating historical accuracy. In this Regency era battle of wits, wills, and the sexes, a wily old duke is determined to see the succession of his line secured, and his three headstrong sons are equally determined to resist the bonds of matrimony. In The Heir, the first in the series, the Earl of Wyndham, weighed down by responsibilities and determined to avoid the rounds of country houses of and matchmaking mamas, decides to summer in London. There he discovers a potentially perfect duchess in his lovely, mysterious housekeeper...

Now, I told myself I wasn't going to be buying anymore books (for awhile). Well, I couldn't resist when I walked by the book aisle in Wal-Mart and saw this beautiful purple cover (and it was the last one). It was destined to be mine, so I said,'s destiny...and I shouldn't fool with destiny...:) Needless to say, my husband who was along that day, didn't understand or appreciate that this destined book ended up in the cart...:)

Nightshade: Book 1Nightshade: Book 1 by Andrea Cremer
Calla Tor has always known her destiny: After graduating from the Mountain School, she'll be the mate of sexy alpha wolf Ren Laroche and fight with him, side by side, ruling their pack and guarding sacred sites for the Keepers. But when she violates her masters' laws by saving a beautiful human boy out for a hike, Calla begins to question her fate, her existence, and the very essence of the world she has known. By following her heart, she might lose everything— including her own life. Is forbidden love worth the ultimate sacrifice?
