The Guardian Duke

Gabriel, also known as the Duke of St. Easton, is living his life as normally as he can. He loves music and goes to live performances as often as he can. One evening he's at such a performance when he is interrupted by the Prince Regent's men, they give him a letter from the Prince. The letter from the Prince asks that Gabriel become guardian for a female that he has never met, Lady Alexandria Featherstone. He knows nothing more about her than her name and that her parents are missing, presumed dead. Unfortunately, as soon as he's given the letter something strange happens to Gabriel, his hearing simply no longer works. Completely deaf, he makes his way to his home where he will see the best doctors that money can buy with no assurance of any change in his hearing. Knowing he must do his duty by Lady Alexandria, he sends his secretary a man he simply calls Meade to visit her on her island and inform her of her parents demise. Alexandria refuses to believe that her parents have died, even though it's been nearly a year since she has had any news from them and she decides that she will be the one to find them. She takes off on her own, swearing her faithful servants to secrecy, but she forgets that it is not wise for a lady to travel alone. Will the Duke of St Easton find her before damage can come to her and to her reputation? 

I enjoyed this story, it was clean, it was romantic. The characters were well written. I had hoped for a different ending. The ending was not very romantic and not happy, but there is a sequel to this book, so hopefully the whole story will end happily.

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…

SeaQuest Aquarium Giveaway

For this week's Friday Favorite (I know...it's only Wednesday!) I want to tell you about something new that I got to try out just last week. It's the SeaQuest Aquarium located in the Layton Hills Mall in Layton. 




This is a pretty new thing, it actually just opened in November. It's new, it's beautiful and there really is nothing like it located in Davis County. And actually, the way that it's been set up there isn't a whole lot like it out there. You see, it's not just an aquarium, it's really an interactive experience. There are only a few exhibits in the whole aquarium that have animals in them that you can't/shouldn't interact with. Those exhibits have high walls on them so you really can't interact with them anyway. Everything else has low walls. You can touch, feed, examine pretty much anything you see here. That makes it so much more than an aquarium.

I love the way it's set up in areas. Each of the rooms has a different and fun …
