Parker

I’ve been disgraced. I have nothing left to my name after being dishonorably discharged from the military. But I was falsely accused. It doesn’t matter though. It would take a Presidential pardon for me to get my life back, and I don’t see that happening anytime soon. But then Knight walked into my life and offered me a chance at redemption. I don’t want to believe that it could be true, but I’m ready to go along for the ride and see what happens. That’s how I met her. She threw me through a window, but that won’t stop me from seeing her again.

You know that phrase ‘I’ve gotten myself into a pickle’? Well, this is a huge pickle. I thought I knew what I was doing when I ran, but this is so much more involved than I ever imagined. I didn’t think someone else would show up at the senator’s house where I was digging up information. I also didn’t expect him to be so hot or to follow me. And I really didn’t expect him to attack me. But I know how to defend myself, so I’m not too worried about it. Now I just have to stay hidden until I can figure out what’s going on. But nothing in my life seems to be going as planned lately. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised when he shows up yet again.

Author Bio:

I’m a stay at home mom that loves to read. Some of my favorite titles are Pride and Prejudice, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and Horatio Hornblower. I started writing when I was trying to come up with suggestions on ways I could help bring in some extra money. I came up with the idea that I could donate plasma because you could earn an extra $500/month. My husband responded with, “No. Find something else. Write a blog. Write a book.” I didn’t think I had anything to share on blog that a thousand other mothers hadn’t already thought of. I decided to take his challenge seriously and sat down to write my first book, Jack. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed writing. From there, the stories continued to flow and I haven’t been able to stop. I hope my readers enjoy my books as much as I enjoy writing them. Between reading, writing, and taking care of three small kids, my days are quite full.

First Lines Monday

First Lines Monday is a weekly feature for book lovers hosted by Wandering Words.  I found this post on Becky’s Book Blog and I loved it so much I decided to try it out. What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

  1. Pick a book off your shelf (it could be your current read or on your TBR) and open to the first page
  2. Copy the first few lines, but don’t give anything else about the book away just yet – you need to hook the reader first
  3. Finally… reveal the book!

‘The answer’s no, Charles.’

Susan Johansen watched the face of her boss, Charles Dunlap, redden with anger. Despite being short and overweight, with a shock of white hair crowning a ruddy face, Charles was a handsome man.

A steamy romance novel that was sent to me as an ARC, which I finished devouring in 2 days.

Susan Johansen is efficient, ambitious and cool-headed in a crisis, which is exactly why her boss, Charles Dunlap, needs her. As the successful owner of one of the richest old money industrialist conglomerates in the world, he is under the pressure of a different kind when his daughter Alicia becomes involved with internet entrepreneur Miles Middleton.

With an ego as big as his bank balance, Miles has a reputation for a string of affairs and Charles doesn’t want his daughter anywhere near him. And so he enlists Susan, as a Trojan Horse, burying her deep within Miles’ business interests in the hope that she can sabotage his relationship with Alicia.

It isn’t long before the plan seems to be working and Miles is missing lunches, dinners and other dates with Alicia in favour of making money and sealing deals. But it’s when he takes Susan away on a business trip and tries to seduce her that she sees him for what he really is. But now that she is close to her goal, Susan suddenly has a crisis of confidence? Is she really still working for Charles or is she now pursuing her own agenda with Miles?

As he continues to get under her skin with his continuous attempts at seduction, Susan finds that she is more conflicted than ever. And the closer she gets to completing the assignment, the greater the chances are that Miles will discover her secret.

Top 5 Thursday | Mermaid Books

I have been fascinated by mermaids since I was a child. The torso of a human and the bottom of a fish, I’m sure can fascinate any child. With the current trend of mermaid’s nails, makeup, cakes, and more; I thought why not try some mermaid books.

These books are not necessarily a re-telling of ‘The Little Mermaid’, that will be a different tag altogether. I have selected some books where mermaids are seen as saviours of the realm and also as flesh eating monsters. Which ones do you prefer?

The Billionaire’s Pregnant Competition by Leslie North – Review

I have no idea why but I’m addicted to reading books about billionaires for some reason. This is my second one in a matter of a week. It doesn’t look like I’m going to stop either. Both the books that I’ve read, I’ve enjoyed so much that I do plan on reading more.

Sackson turned his television off now that the attractive news reporter had finished. His eyes lingered out of the hotel window at the palm trees swaying in the wind before returning to straightening his fake moustache and beard. Seeing himself in the mirror with a different looking man in the reflection was nothing new.

I am definitely intrigued by the fake identity that has been mentioned above. I have received this book as an ARC from the author and will be reading and reviewing soon.

Clint and Corbin are having a weird day. Best friends for life, things are getting a little strange around their town, and at school. When they’re followed by a strange man looking for Clint and later attacked by an imp, it makes sense to retreat to the safety of home. But when strangers from another world, Banks and O’Neil, arrive with their medley of allies, things get even weirder. Why are they here? What do they want? And what is The Requiem that everyone keeps talking about? As Clint and his friends and family are drawn deeper into a thrilling adventure, only one thing is for sure. They may not be getting out alive. And class with Mrs Christenson will seem like a walk in the park after this.

Top 5 Thursday | Greek Mythology

Greek mythology is one of my favourites. I could read about the 13 Gods all day long. There was a time when I wished I was either Poseidon’s daughter or Athena’s. The myth, the concept, the power, the glory, the challenges, the legends all keep me bound to the Olympus Gods till this day.

During my school days, I read the Percy Jackson series and the Heroes of Olympus series and I loved each book with all my heart. I give full credit to Rick Riordan for getting me hooked onto Greek mythology.

Kaia Dashul wove a ball of fire between her fingertips, feeling the rage simmering beneath a tangle of excited nerves as she watched the festival from the shadowed wood. 

A book I recently read and reviewed. I enjoyed it till the end and can’t wait for the sequel to be out soon!

The brave, burning with fire, harnessed the Dragon’s Rage…

As the Dragon Heir, seventeen-year-old Kaia inherited the power of flame to protect her homeland from a godlike necromancer’s undead army. But after centuries of peace, the necromancer has faded to myth, and the Dragon Heir is feared by the people. Persecuted and cast out, Kaia struggles to embrace and control her seemingly useless gift while confined to her family’s farm.

But when the necromancer’s undead terrorize the land once again, Kaia runs away to join the battle.

With the help of her childhood rival, the handsome Shadow Heir, and a snarky, cursed cat, Kaia must figure out how to control both her fire and her confidence in time to save Okarria. If she fails, she will sacrifice her family, her new friends, and the enchanting world she has only just begun to see.

And time is running out.

Top 5 Thursday | Book series I want to read

I’ve been meaning to write on this topic for a while but I kept pushing it back. Over the years, a number of book series have been published, which I desperately wanted to read but never got around to them. This prompt is specifically for those book series that have been on my TBR list for a very long time and I do *hopefully* plan to read them soon.
