Seeking Persephone

The Duke of Kielder is in a bit of a bind, he has never married and the heir apparent of his estate is a man that he can't stand. His solicitor recommends marrying a young woman with no fortune and no prospects of suitors because of her family's situation. The Duke agrees just because he feels the woman will be older and not very pretty so she won't mind the scars on his face from his childhood. Enter Persephone Lancaster, a 20 year old pretty young woman, who has no fortune. Her family loves her, but she's served as the mother of the family since she was 12. She determines to basically sell herself in marriage to the Duke so that her younger sisters will have the opportunity to marry whoever they desire when they are of age. But she didn't take the consequences under consideration. She didn't realize just how hard it would be to see her family leave her deep in the forest at Faltstone Castle with the Duke of Kielder, Adam, who refuses to even look at her most of the time. Adam isn't sure how he ended up marrying such a beautiful young girl, but he is sure that she will want nothing to do with him and his scarred face. Can they learn to look past the outward appearance and love each other before it's too late? I really looked forward to reading this book, it's Sarah M Eden's first book re-released. I loved her other 2 books, Courting Miss Lancaster (the sequel to this one) and The Kiss of a Stranger. They are regency romances, very clean and intriguing. I read this book very fast and I loved every minute of it! I hope she writes more books like this one very soon!

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 …
