    She's 33, unmarried, and stuffed into a Bubble-Yum-pink bridesmaid dress. And the whole town wants to fix her up with anyone with a dental plan.... Who's going to rescue Sadie Hollowell now? Everyone in Lovett, Texas, knows Sadie has always been a "notional" kind of gal. She got a notion to leave town ASAP and never visit her daddy (bless his heart) again. Now she's back and got the notion to invite a good-looking, hard-muscled, total stranger to her cousin's wedding.

    I was pleasantly surprised with this book. I loved the humorous quips that came out of the main character's conversations and observations in her head. She gave me more than a few chuckles as she summed people up (after returning to her home town).

    1234 A.D. - For as long as she can remember, the Lady Adalind de Aston has loved Sir Maddoc du Bois. Being sent away to foster did nothing to cure her of her unending love for Maddoc, a sentiment he did not return. Years later, Adalind returns from fostering as a cultured and beautiful woman. So beautiful, in fact, that tales of her beauty are legendary and a string of hopeful suitors follow her home. Maddoc, now faced with this exquisite and refined creature, is tasked, as the captain of the army, with chasing the suitors away.

    Story

    While the story and performance were very good I have two things to criticize. The first is the fact that too much narration can be overkill and many authors are guilty of writing too many words when a few words would have worked. The second is at the beginning of each chapter the narrator quotes poetry in a soothing type voice. Drove me crazy.

    Joan Bennet has endured four Seasons without a single suitor or serious flirtation, let alone a marriage proposal. She's had just about enough of being a respectable wallflower and is giving serious thought to embarking on a life of sin, or at least lascivious adventure like the ones described in a popular scandalous book. When she meets her brother's favorite drinking mate, Viscount Burke, it seems her hopes of adventure might be answered . . .

    Story

    It is amazing how, in some books, the two main characters are so quickly drawn to each other and how easily they are seduced. A confirmed rogue and a spinster (young by today standards) and the chase is on. A little humor in the dialogue with the two main characters in their banter. Is it love, or lust?

    With this brilliant foray into historical fiction, Christy Award finalist Sandra Byrd delivers a fresh look at Anne Boleyn through the eyes of her lifelong friend Meg Wyatt. As Anne finds favor with Henry VIII, Meg basks in the glow of Anne’s glory. But when Anne falls out of favor, the childhood friends are plunged into a maelstrom of slander and intrigue that tests the limits of their loyalties and puts their lives - and the lives of their loved ones - in grave danger.

    Story

    Lady Margaret "Meg" Wyatt was my 14th great grandmother so I was thrilled when I came across this novel of Anne Boleyn's friendship with Meg Wyatt. I thought it was very well done. In this book Meg Wyatt is very devoted and loyal to Anne Boleyn right up to Anne's violent end. Historically interesting with facts regarding Anne's execution. They were violent times in history.

    Story

    It was a good book but it had it's moments. Sometimes authors go into to much detail when telling their story. Sometimes too much dialogue that just seems to fill in to make the book longer. They story was very good but I would have liked the author to advance from one situation to another with minimal dialogue or explanations. Her books always has a hero that sounds like a god in build and stature. Her description of West did not disappoint. Sigh. Regardless of my criticisms it was a good book, just not 5 stars.

    Some series books don't leave you hanging from book to book. The ending of this book had a prologue to book 2. I felt a little bit disappointed with the prologue. And the last chapter of this book I felt could have been condensed. It just seemed to drag on. It jus wasn't one of my favorites.

    I have never seen plague bring a man back from the dead. Nor do I know of any sickness, in England or upon the continent, that gives its victims a taste for living flesh. So declares Sir Edward Dallingridge, a noble knight whose years defending England on the battlefield haven't prepared him to face an enemy as chilling - and relentless - as the living dead. But even as his countrymen flee in horror, Sir Edward rides straight into the unholy infestation. For his lady love lies trapped behind a hundred miles of fiendish terror, and nothing will keep him from her.

    Three knights in the time of the plague trying to reach Sir Edward's wife. What trials and tribulations befall the Knights on their journey to save Elizabeth. The book had a little science fiction to it regarding those with the plague. Part of me liked the book, part of me didn't. Plus it should have a different ending.
