The Cover Reveal for … Tristan

Welcome to the Cover Reveal for … Tristan By Jeannie Lynn Roberts

But first a little about the book….

Synopsis:

His redemption might be her downfall…

Tristan has nothing left to lose. His best friend’s betrayal cost him everything. Now, he’s going to take it back. All he has to do to get the Hawks reinstated to their rightful position at the palace is track down the traitor’s younger sister and turn her over for execution. But Nim’s not the girl Tristan left behind years ago; she’s a stubborn, loyal, beautiful woman, and he can’t stop himself from wanting her.

Nim fled with nothing when the king’s favorite came for her. All she has left is the conviction that her brother is innocent—and her determination to free him. She’ll do anything…even if it means convincing Tristan to help her. But the man he’s become is a far cry from the boy she fell in love with so long ago. He’s formidably stern and deeply untrusting. She’ll just have to hope he still has a heart under that battle-scarred exterior.

When love and duty collide, will Tristan follow his orders or follow his heart?

Tristan, book 1 in The Hawks series, is a sexy, steamy, adult fantasy romance full of swords, shifters (kind of), and tons of action. But fair warning: This book is intended only for readers who love slow burn romance, fast-paced adventure, soul mates and found family—and characters who curse when they fight for survival. If that’s you, happy reading.

AUTHOR BIO: Jennie’s favourite films growing up were Dirty Dancing, Top Gun, Star Wars, and The Princess Bride. This probably tells you everything you might want to know about her!

As a teenager, she read a lot of epic fantasy while the books that she hid under her bed were filled with vampires and sexy suspense. The day she discovered romance, and found a huge array of wonderful books combining the magic and action she loved with kissing and a guaranteed Happily Ever After, she was hooked.

She has been a waitress, an analyst, a consultant, a managing director and a therapist, and now spends as much time as she can at her computer lost in a fantasy world populated with kick-ass heroines and dangerous heroes.

Jennie lives in England, with her husband and two children, in a small village with a duck-pond and, much to her disappointment, very few shifters and no dragons to speak

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? a place to meet up and share what you have been, and are about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment and er… add to your groaning TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started on J Kaye’s blog and then was hosted by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn here at The Book Date.

Hope you are all doing okay.

What I read last week:

Too Much and Never Enough By: Mary L. Trump

Frontier Follies By:  Ree Drummond

Umbrella Man By: Willow Rose

What I am reading now:

The House Of Kennedy By:  James Patterson / Cynthia Fagen

Now with an all-new bonus chapter—in the bestselling The House of Kennedy, “James Patterson applies his writerly skills to real-life history . . . re-telling the political clan’s rise and fall and rise again (and fall again) with novelistic style” (People). 
 

The Kennedys have always been a family of charismatic adventurers, raised to take risks and excel, living by the dual family mottos: “To whom much is given, much is expected” and “Win at all costs.” And they do—but at a price. 

Across decades and generations, the Kennedys have occupied a unique place in the American imagination: charmed, cursed, at once familiar and unknowable. The House of Kennedy is a revealing, fascinating account of America’s most storied family, as told by America’s most trusted storyteller.

Up next:

Mind Hunter BY:  John E. Douglas

Discover the classic, behind-the-scenes chronicle of John E. Douglas’ twenty-five-year career in the FBI Investigative Support Unit, where he used psychological profiling to delve into the minds of the country’s most notorious serial killers and criminals—the basis for the upcoming Netflix original series.

In chilling detail, the legendary Mindhunter takes us behind the scenes of some of his most gruesome, fascinating, and challenging cases—and into the darkest recesses of our worst nightmares.

During his twenty-five year career with the Investigative Support Unit, Special Agent John Douglas became a legendary figure in law enforcement, pursuing some of the most notorious and sadistic serial killers of our time: the man who hunted prostitutes for sport in the woods of Alaska, the Atlanta child murderer, and Seattle’s Green River killer, the case that nearly cost Douglas his life.

As the model for Jack Crawford in The Silence of the Lambs, Douglas has confronted, interviewed, and studied scores of serial killers and assassins, including Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, and Ed Gein, who dressed himself in his victims’ peeled skin. Using his uncanny ability to become both predator and prey, Douglas examines each crime scene, reliving both the killer’s and the victim’s actions in his mind, creating their profiles, describing their habits, and predicting their next moves.

WWW.Wednesday

Happy WWW Wednesday!

Hello and welcome to my little corner, a place where I come to get away from everything and just relax.  I hope that your Wednesday is going well and we are half way through the week.

WWW Wednesday is hosted by Sam on Taking on a World of Words. Anyone can participate by answering the three questions below and then posting a link to your post from your blog on Sam’s website, or just answer the questions on her post, if you do not have a blog.

The three questions (Ws) are:

1.) What are you currently reading?
2.) What did you recently finish reading?
3.) What do you think you’ll read next?

 I am currently 80% through Too Much and Never Enough  By:  Mary L. Trump

In this revelatory, authoritative portrait of Donald J. Trump and the toxic family that made him, Mary L. Trump, a trained clinical psychologist and Donald’s only niece, shines a bright light on the dark history of their family in order to explain how her uncle became the man who now threatens the world’s health, economic security, and social fabric.

Mary Trump spent much of her childhood in her grandparents’ large, imposing house in the heart of Queens, New York, where Donald and his four siblings grew up. She describes a nightmare of traumas, destructive relationships, and a tragic combination of neglect and abuse. She explains how specific events and general family patterns created the damaged man who currently occupies the Oval Office, including the strange and harmful relationship between Fred Trump and his two oldest sons, Fred Jr. and Donald.

A firsthand witness to countless holiday meals and interactions, Mary brings an incisive wit and unexpected humor to sometimes grim, often confounding family events. She recounts in unsparing detail everything from her uncle Donald’s place in the family spotlight and Ivana’s penchant for regifting to her grandmother’s frequent injuries and illnesses and the appalling way Donald, Fred Trump’s favorite son, dismissed and derided him when he began to succumb to Alzheimer’s.

Numerous pundits, armchair psychologists, and journalists have sought to parse Donald J. Trump’s lethal flaws. Mary L. Trump has the education, insight, and intimate familiarity needed to reveal what makes Donald, and the rest of her clan, tick. She alone can recount this fascinating, unnerving saga, not just because of her insider’s perspective but also because she is the only Trump willing to tell the truth about one of the world’s most powerful and dysfunctional families.

Welcome

Hello, I haven’t blogged in a while. This year has been hard and different for all of us. In March I was furloughed until July when they told me that my position was no longer needed. So here I am thinking what am I going to do now, I have always been in the hospitality field and as you all know that go hit the hardest. So here I am today, in a totally new career, I am now processing medical claims. I am also trying to start my own Virtual Assistant Company and I am hoping that it will be up and running by February.

But I am delighted to be able to blog again and I have read several books, and hope to publish my reviews shortly, and I am working on some new designs for this book blog. Stay tuned for those upcoming post. Thanks for following One Girl and A Book.

New Book Alert

Hello and welcome. I love when Amazon Kindle Unlimited give me reviews of new books. I can’t wait to start reading this one.

She Lied She Died A gripping new thriller by Carissa Lynch

A gripping new page-turning thriller from the USA Today bestseller!

Best friend. Teenager. Murderer.

A young girl found dead in a neighbor’s field.

A fourteen-year-old who confesses.

Just a child herself, could Chrissy Cornwall really be a cold-blooded killer?

Years later, the murderer is getting out and Natalie Bryers, unable to forget the night of Jenny’s murder, still has questions.

Did Chrissy lie then or is she lying now?  Did she really kill Jenny?  And if so, will she kill again?

Have you read it, if so what are your thoughts.

Hump Day

Good Morning and welcome to my little corner on the web. Its been a while since my last post. But the good news is I have started working and its a whole new job, as in a different field. I have alot of reviews to start posting, stay tuned for those. Have a great Wednesday.

 I am currently 80% through All Fall Down By:  Ally Carter.

It was recommended through a book group that I belong to and so far I am not disappointed in it.  Here is a little about the book.

51j3y87RlTL._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_Here is a little about the book:

A new series of global proportions — from master of intrigue, New York Times bestselling author Ally Carter.

Grace Blakely is absolutely certain of three things:

1. She is not crazy.
2. Her mother was murdered.
3. Someday she is going to find the killer and make him pay.

As certain as Grace is about these facts, nobody else believes her — so there’s no one she can completely trust. Not her grandfather, a powerful ambassador. Not her new friends, who all live on Embassy Row. Not Alexei, the Russian boy next door, who is keeping his eye on Grace for reasons she neither likes nor understands.

Everybody wants Grace to put on a pretty dress and a pretty smile, blocking out all her unpretty thoughts. But they can’t control Grace — no more than Grace can control what she knows or what she needs to do. Her past has come back to hunt her . . . and if she doesn’t stop it, Grace isn’t the only one who will get hurt. Because on Embassy Row, the countries of the world stand like dominoes, and one wrong move can make them all fall down.

Shout

41qiPQE3JjL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_New York Times bestseller and one of 2019’s best-reviewed books, a poetic memoir and call to action from the award-winning author of Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson!

Bestselling author Laurie Halse Anderson is known for the unflinching way she writes about, and advocates for, survivors of sexual assault. Now, inspired by her fans and enraged by how little in our culture has changed since her groundbreaking novel Speak was first published twenty years ago, she has written a poetry memoir that is as vulnerable as it is rallying, as timely as it is timeless. In free verse, Anderson shares reflections, rants, and calls to action woven between deeply personal stories from her life that she’s never written about before. Described as “powerful,” “captivating,” and “essential” in the nine starred reviews it’s received, this must-read memoir is being hailed as one of 2019’s best books for teens and adults. A denouncement of our society’s failures and a love letter to all the people with the courage to say #MeToo and #TimesUp, whether aloud, online, or only in their own hearts, SHOUT speaks truth to power in a loud, clear voice– and once you hear it, it is impossible to ignore.

  • Hardcover:304 pages
  • Publisher:Viking Books for Young Readers (March 12, 2019)
  • Language:English

My Thoughts:

This is the first book that I have read by this author and it was powerful.  When searching for this at my local library and seeing all the good reviews I knew I had to get it. And I’m glad I did.

Wow, what a great book. Intense but informative and keeps you sucked in.  I highly recommend this book.
