Book Description

When the stress of the job pushes Sam Magnus to take greater risks than is called for as a helicopter pilot with the US Army 160th Night Stalkers, his commander insists he extend his leave for much-needed R&R. With no clue how to chill, he relies on a dart thrown at a map to determine where he should spend his unwanted vacation. The Greek Island of Santorini it is! Used to non-stop action, the thought of lolling in the sun for two weeks makes him want to hurt someone. Until he interferes with an attempted kidnapping of one hot babe his first night on the island. Stranded on Santorini, abandoned by the wealthy couple who hired her, former au pair, Kinsey Phillips, has enough going wrong with being broke and homeless, she doesn’t need to add an attempted kidnapping to her list of troubles. An Army Helicopter pilot swoops in to rescue her, and thus begins a whole new set of troubles. Someone is determined to take Kinsey. It’s not Sam’s job to keep her safe, but he resolutely assumes the responsibility when he discovers she has nowhere else to go. Rest and relaxation is impossible to achieve with a sexy blond sharing his room, especially when her attackers aren’t willing to forgo their prize.

Book Review


Sam is the last of the four brothers in this series. Just like all the others, he didn't fall gently in love, but literally rescued his future girlfriend from thugs looking to kidnap her.
Kinsey is having a bit of trouble on this new chapter of her life. She sold off everything and moved to Europe for a fresh start, but everything went wrong from the job she had lined up falling through to the people she was working for leaving without giving her her wages.
Kinsey's optimistic attitude despite everything that she has gone through finally thaws the heart that Sam has kept in deep freeze since he lost his fiancee to cancer. Neither of them are looking for a permanent relationship, but both of them end up falling, hard, for each other. Nice plot, good characterization and of course the family dinner reunion was a nice touch at the end of the series.
I received an advanced copy for reviewing.

Book Description

Love can be the greatest possession.

Brianna Lindsay's grip on the inheritance that is rightly hers hangs by a thread. If the town finds out her father has died, Brianna will be forced into marriage with her loathsome cousin, Lord Robert, and will lose all of Edzell Castle and its lands. To protect her home, she'll have to trust a complete stranger, a brooding Highland barbarian who sweeps into Edzell with a small retinue and insists on replacing her Captain of the Guard. He proves his worth by defeating her men and she has no choice but to accept his offer.

Though his motives are suspect, Colin MacKinnon has nobility in his blood and good intentions in coming to Edzell. He seeks his own kingdom, one to rival his father's, and sets out to conquer Brianna in the best way he knows how—with seduction.

Brianna never thought of all the wealth she protects, the one thing she has left completely vulnerable is her heart. Colin never thought that of everything he stands to achieve, he might have to face the unexpected pain of loss. Together, they must navigate a treacherous world of spies and intrigue, of legacy and fidelity, of love and betrayal, to find what is truly worth possessing.

Book Review

Another excellent historical read from Madeline Martin. Brianna is desperate to retain her freedom, while her cousin tries to force her into marriage with him. She turns to her Captain of the Guard for help. Collin is not a commoner like she believed, as his father is a laird. However the situation is complicated and she needs to save him from hanging, for a crime that he did not commit.
What I loved about the book is that there is no single plot that takes you predictably from a to z. You have misunderstandings between the newly married couple, you have a temptress from the husband's past, you have a possible French father of the wife, not to mention a twin brother and disapproving father who also show up. 

From the first page she has you hooked. I literally couldn't sleep without completing the novel.Totally recommend the read.

How I turned into an Author

I am a thirty seven year old female, and a computer engineer by profession. The thought of writing a book never crossed my mind until I was thirty four. It was one fine day and my heart was full of gratitude toward the Universe for blessing my life in so many ways. I was never so grateful before. I have always had a big list of complaints against my life and the circumstances I have been through. But that day there were no complaints, no grudges, and no blame.
I pondered and asked myself, “What have you done, Nidhi? Life was not so peaceful for you before and you never thought that you would have a happy life. How did you reach here?” As I introspected I heard a voice say, “I love you” to me. My heart pounded, and love danced within my chest. I had a strong urge to write a poem and I wrote one. Then wrote another, and then another. I wrote around twenty poems that day.
I thought to myself that if I can write up to fifty poems I will get those printed for my children. But the writing did not stop. It happened every single day and has been happening ever since. The content of my writings and poems have changed, but a voice within me keeps telling me love secrets that I write down on a paper. These secrets have turned into two beautiful books “My Wedding with Truth”, and “A Journey to Yonder”, with a third one coming up next.
I hope you all can make that connection with the secret lover and live your life to your true potential.
once,
i was
normal.
i fell
in love.
. . .
now,
i am
crazy.
and
love has fallen
all over me.

Book Description

A Journey to Yonder is the tale of one woman’s refusal to allow the challenges of her past to define her present. She grows up with a special needs sibling and loses her childhood home, and we then follow her through an abusive relationship and into the most unforgiving of human trials.

With experiences that leave you feeling so alone, how do you hold on to hope? How do you go on?

Nidhi Kaur’s compelling use of both poetry and prose intimately welcomes readers into this moving story of spiritual rediscovery. Poems are sprinkled throughout the story, guiding readers through intimate and stunning moments of truth. Kaur reminds us that if we offer our trust completely to God, we are never alone.

The author of the spiritual collection of poetry My Wedding with Truth, Nidhi Kaur once again delivers an emotionally enlightened journey through the human heart. Miracles can be seen everywhere in this world, and Kaur helps us remember to keep our eyes open in this riveting story of redemption.

Book Review

 As an Indian woman myself, I have not been a stranger to the inequality of genders in our country. Very often I have faced circumstances similar to what the author narrated in the book and felt the fear and frustrations that often accompany these experiences. This is a tale of self discovery and return to prayer after really horrific experiences.

I don't know if the story is autobiographical, but I pray it is not. The book has a beautiful blend of prose and poetry which leads us into the author's inner thoughts and feelings. The language is descriptive and evokes visual images. I loved the way she described her childhood home and could almost compare it to my own grandparents home. The loss she felt when it was sold was one that I could totally identify with.

The darker parts of the book involving the abusive treatment left me feeling depressed. To be honest it rang a bit too true to what often happens around us in society. Sometimes it's even closer home. The author's strength in bringing all this to light is truly commendable. I wish her joy and solace as she takes the journey into yonder.

Book Description

If it swells, ride it…
Georgie Childress moved to Verity Beach to lick her wounds after her controlling fiancĂ© pulled a runner mere weeks before the wedding. Jobless and desperate to flee his turf, she sought solace in the quietude of the ocean, happily escaping into her own thoughts while surrounded by diving dolphins and cacophonous seagulls. Only when she accidentally runs over some random—and super sexy—surfer dude’s surfboard does she start to wonder if she needs to bring her head out of the clouds and start paying attention to life again.
Spencer Willoughby long ago fled his rigid upbringing, shunning the familial expectations of an Ivy League education and Wall Street career in favor of the sun, sand and surf along North Carolina’s Outer Banks. Give him a surfboard and he’s a happy man. That is until some nutty lady with a penchant for fender-benders backs into his beloved hand-crafted wooden surfboard, snapping it in half. It’s enough to make a man crazy—crazier still because the kooky blond is making his blood run hot.
Just when he finally gets the woman out of his head, Spencer is unwittingly paired off with her at a wedding as a favor to a friend, forcing him to make nice with his board-murdering nemesis who he might just want to ride off into the sunset.

Book Review


This was a book that made me smile. Georgie is an emotional and extremely sentimental person. Having been stood up at the altar, her resolve to safeguard her heart includes sticking with her BOBs and not looking at men for even companionship. Then she goes to the beach and "Kills" a handmade surf board. The surfer dude is very understanding, although he may be just been in shock. She feels terrible about her action and decides to do something nice for the stranger, like making him a handmade quilt.
Of course she has no idea how she's going to give it to him. Considering that she doesn't even know his name. Then she heads to her cousin's wedding and bumps into him again. He's been tasked with keeping her busy for the evening while his friend tries to make headway with her boss and friend who accompanied her to the wedding. Needless to say, things get a bit uncomfortable.
Spencer spent a lot of time and effort crafting the perfect wooden board to surf. He even named it Petie. And then this thoughtless blond just killed it. How was he supposed to surf now? He'd left behind a privileged life to get away from the suffocating stranglehold of his father. He was not quite over the betrayal of his ex girlfriend who supported his father rather than his own dreams. Women were simply not worth the effort it took to develop a relationship.
Tinder was good enough to meet any other needs. So when he runs into the weepy blond from the beach, he's wondering what kind of evening he's in for at the wedding. It ends up going better than he expected and even as he skips out the next morning he can't help but think maybe he's doing something wrong.
