T.G.I.F. Bookworms!!!

I founded a few more good books to add to my tbr that I’m happy to share with you today.

The Awakening by Nora Roberts I discovered whilst browsing giveaways on Goodreads. I’ve never read any of her book but have been meaning to for a while.

Where Dreams Descend by Janella Angeles was a Instagram add that was published earlier this week. I really like the premise so may give this one a try.

String: A Love Story by Megan Edwards is another book I found in the giveaways section. I used to play the violin and the story sounded interesting, so I’m inclined to try it.

The Keeper’s Vow by Francina Simone I added because I absolutely loved her book Smash It!, which will be published next month, September 22.

Her Accidental Highlander Husband by Allison B. Hanson had much of the things I love about fantasy and romance book, so I’d like to read it very much.

by Megan Edwards
Adult Contemporary Romance

The Merino Rose. Ted Spencer has a hard enough time believing the celebrated violin really exists. To find it sitting on his coffee table is nothing short of incredible. The stuff of legend, the exquisite Guarnerius has been missing for centuries.

But even though the renowned instrument is a violin lover’s dream come true, it holds only heartache for Ted. The value of the Merino Rose may be beyond measure, but he has acquired it at too high a cost.

Ted found his soul mate when he met Olivia de la Vega his senior year in high school. In the school’s production of Camelot, Ted was cast as Lancelot, Olivia as Guenevere. They should have spent their lives together but strings got in the way–family ties, career objectives, and the tangled web of fate.

Will the Merino Rose bring the two star-crossed lovers together at last, or will their love always remain the melancholy sound of distant violins?

From the day he showed up on her front porch, he desperately needed three things: a new beginning, a place to belong, and someone to stand beside him.

By the time she figured that out, it was too late.

In a world where being half-vampire is a dark secret that tears families apart, 16 year-old Katie Watts must untangle the web of lies that is her so-called life. No one is who she thought they were. Her father is keeping secrets and everyone knows the darker truth except her. She has no direction, no answers, and—when she searches for the truth—no home.

As the web untangles, the truth pulls Katie and Tristan closer together, and they find themselves connected in more ways than she can believe. But—is honesty worth more than blissful ignorance? Can she live with the truths that begin with her dead mother and end with The Keeper’s Vow?

Marian Fletcher Blackley, Duchess of Endsmere, has been on the run from the English Crown for weeks since killing her abusive husband…no matter that it was self-defense. She has only one safe place to go—the MacKinlay clan in Scotland, where her sister is the laird’s wife.

When one day a sprite of a lass comes running out of the forest with hounds nipping at her heels and an English bounty hunter not far behind, he feels compelled to save her by claiming the disheveled duchess is his wife. But he certainly didn’t intend to marry her for real!

And now he’ll do anything to protect her…
