The Rogue Knight

Fontaine Pratinia is an orphan living with her aunt Carileena, who's not only mean to Fontaine, she is a woman with loose principals. One night a stranger knocks on the servant's entrance of Fontaine's home. She happens to be standing there and opens the door to find a very handsome, very beaten man. He had been beaten by some vagabonds and in his weakened condition was trying to find some shelter from the very cold that it was outside. Fontaine lets him in and almost immediately he falls unconscious on top of her. Her friends the servants are able to move him into the servant's sick room, where Fontaine intends to keep him as quiet as possible so that her aunt won't find him and force herself on him. Fontaine had already fallen in love with him after only seeing him one time, and falls even deeper in love with him over the days that he's unconscious and she's taking care of him. Soon though, he is well again, and as he's about to leave, her aunt finds him and offers him employment as a coach driver, which he accepts strictly to protect Fontaine. The next thing she asks him to do is to become Fontaine's lover, which he's more than happy to do, because he loves her. But will she ever come to see that he really does love her, or will she just always think that it's only because her aunt's paying him to be? I didn't love this book as much as I have some of her other books, it just wasn't as well written as some of her other books have been. It's not a terrible book though.

Deseret Bookshelf Plus Review

I'm super excited to be able to tell you about Deseret Bookshelf's newest feature, Plus. I actually first heard about plus coming six months ago at Deseret Book's ladies night. I thought it sounded pretty great and now that I've tried it, I think it's even better than it sounded. It's basically a subscription that you add on top of the Deseret Bookshelf App. If you have Deseret Book's Platinum membership, you pay only $6.99 a month or $69 a year. If you don't it's $9.99 a month or $99 a year. Either way that's a really good deal for what you are going to be getting.

Here's the deal. With plus, you get to listen to all of their audiobooks...for FREE! Something I noticed on this is that you get to listen to even the newest books that are just barely in the store for FREE. I love this! Who has the time to run to the store to grab the book the very day it comes out? Not me, I'm too busy chasing kids around to do that!

Not to mention - have you…

Kayaks and Kisses

About the book: Brynn Caley is about to start her dream career running an outdoor sporting goods store when an out-of-town business guru makes his own offer on the property. Coerced into forming a temporary partnership, Brynn, with her ski experience, finds she has to work with fishing expert Gage to run the year-round shop. 

Through a series of innocent misconceptions and a few blatant lies, Brynn doesn’t realize that the handsome single guy on the construction crew is her new partner, and he doesn’t want to set her straight until he can gain her favor. She, on the other hand, would do anything not to work with the stuffy businessman she’s only met through email. 

Inspired by the movies You’ve Got Mail and The Shop around the Corner, Kayaks & Kisses is a heart-warming tale of finding love in autumn leaves, outdoor activities, and new friendships.

My review: This book was so fun! I loved that it's loosely based on one of my very favorite movies, You've Got Mail. There was at …
