Filthy Lies (Blackstone Dynasty #2)

On the day I turned fifteen years old I knew I loved James Blakney. There was a look in his eye that told me he’d finally noticed I existed in a realm beyond best-friend’s-much-younger-off-limits-don’t-even-think-about-it-little-sister. Call it womanly intuition, despite the fact I was barely qualified for being an actual woman at just fifteen—and only in the biological sense—but still, I knew I loved him.

What I never expected from him was a proposal of marriage nearly eight years later. I know it’s not supposed to be a real marriage, but James is certainly making it feel that way.

He’s also hiding something from me.

But I’ve hidden the truth from him as well.

Lies.

So many filthy lies.

~Winter Blackstone

 

My Take:

Outstanding! This books was fantastic! I fell so hard for James Blakney! I had a crush on one of my friends older brothers when I was younger and so this story hit home for me. I loved seeing James & Winter go from friends to lovers in this super sexy storyline. It was also really good to get to see some of the characters from the authors other books (ie. Brooke & Caleb and Ethan & Brynne). I very highly recommend this book!! (And really any book from Raine Miller, she’s a must read author)

P.S. I cannot wait for Lucas’ story!! I really hope there’s going to be one.

Filthy Rich (Blackstone Dynasty #1) by Raine Miller

Billionaire Caleb Blackstone lives in the glamorous world of wealth and success, with every material luxury. But the moment he sees Brooke Casterley, none of that matters. Caleb is filled with a raw, undeniable need that he can’t ignore…for a girl who is so completely different from everything and everyone he’s ever known.

Only Brooke isn’t looking for love. She knows all too well just how much damage the wrong guy can do. Still, what sane, broke British girl can resist the charms of an incredibly sexy, chivalrous billionaire? What starts as flirtation quickly turns into all-consuming passion. Nothing could have prepared her for the searing heat of Caleb’s touch—or just how much she craves him.

Their whirlwind romance is the stuff of high-society fantasy—but for every moment of pleasure, there is a cost. Past mistakes and tragedy shadow them both…and falling for him might be the kind of trouble she can’t afford.

 

My Take:

Loved it!! I was hooked from the first page! Caleb Blackstone is a total gentlemen, which I love, and makes you fall hard for him the instant you meet him. I loved how strong but yet so broken Brooke was. It was wonderful watching her journey. Highly recommend!

Priceless (Rothvale Legacy, #1)

Ivan Everley, 13th Baron Rothvale, will tell you himself he’s the LAST person on earth who should have custody over a priceless collection of art, but since when does the irony of life ever fall in line with what somebody wants? Ivan might be a Lord according to British law, but he’s just a regular guy with an appetite for speed…and women…and some dominating kink in the bedroom. Yeah, just a regular guy who happens have Olympic gold medals stashed away in his house. Riiiight. His public profile is merely a sham–his private life a carefully guarded secret borne out of the pain of betrayal. Even his famous cousin, Ethan Blackstone, doesn’t know the whole story about the man he considers a brother.

Lord Ivan has a plethora of problems piled up to his aristocratic eyeballs–that only get more complicated when a beautiful art conservationist shows up to appraise his inherited collection of paintings–but that doesn’t stop him from digging himself in deeper. Nope, not a bit. Once Ivan gets a taste of Gabrielle Hargreave, mistaken identity or not, he can’t think of anything else but how perfect she felt in his arms the night he first laid his eyes on her.

He wants her, and what Ivan wants, Ivan gets. He is Lord Ivan after all. Gabrielle soon discovers that the Dom in him isn’t taking ‘no’ for an answer. But, yet, Gabrielle Hargreave might just teach our discontent lord a thing or two about life, and about himself, and help them both discover the undeniable truth in what it means to find something genuinely…priceless.

 

My Take:

Holy smokes this book was HOT! Ivan is a sexy alpha male and Gabrielle is a lady who secretly wants to be bad. I loved the chemistry between these two characters and literally did not want it to end! I cannot wait for the next book My Lord! I HIGHLY recommend you read any and every thing by Raine Miller!

My Lord (Rothvale Legacy, #2)

Priceless paintings…
Done in a master’s hand…
Revealed two centuries after they were created…
A collection of paintings has complicated Lord Rothvale’s life in ways he could never imagine. Actually, make that a beautiful art specialist from the University of London responsible for the complications in his life.
He’s sure about one thing though. Before Gabrielle Hargreave blew back into his sights on a stormy summer night, he never felt this good. She’s turned his world upside down, along with his wounded heart.
But Gabrielle is sporting a wounded heart of her own, and she’s terrified of risking it again on someone like Ivan. Will he hurt her as others have done? Or is Ivan Everley more than just commanding male beauty in a lordly package?
He will tell you he is, and knows how to keep his head in the game when it matters. The truth is clouded for these two and there is trouble afoot, but one thing is certain. Ivan has identified his target, and is determined to take the win—making Gabrielle his one and only Lady Rothvale.
A love beyond any price…
Lives intertwined over the ages…
Discoveries of the heart and of treasures hidden away…

“I want to be your lord and master, Gabrielle.” -IVAN EVERLEY

Filthy Lies (Blackstone Dynasty #2)

On the day I turned fifteen years old I knew I loved James Blakney. There was a look in his eye that told me he’d finally noticed I existed in a realm beyond best-friend’s-much-younger-off-limits-don’t-even-think-about-it-little-sister. Call it womanly intuition, despite the fact I was barely qualified for being an actual woman at just fifteen—and only in the biological sense—but still, I knew I loved him.

What I never expected from him was a proposal of marriage nearly eight years later. I know it’s not supposed to be a real marriage, but James is certainly making it feel that way.

He’s also hiding something from me.

But I’ve hidden the truth from him as well.

Lies.

So many filthy lies.

Priceless paintings…
Done in a master’s hand…
Revealed two centuries after they were created…
A collection of paintings has complicated Lord Rothvale’s life in ways he could never imagine. Actually, make that a beautiful art specialist from the University of London responsible for the complications in his life.
He’s sure about one thing though. Before Gabrielle Hargreave blew back into his sights on a stormy summer night, he never felt this good. She’s turned his world upside down, along with his wounded heart.
But Gabrielle is sporting a wounded heart of her own, and she’s terrified of risking it again on someone like Ivan. Will he hurt her as others have done? Or is Ivan Everley more than just commanding male beauty in a lordly package?
He will tell you he is, and knows how to keep his head in the game when it matters. The truth is clouded for these two and there is trouble afoot, but one thing is certain. Ivan has identified his target, and is determined to take the win—making Gabrielle his one and only Lady Rothvale.
A love beyond any price…
Lives intertwined over the ages…
Discoveries of the heart and of treasures hidden away…

“I want to be your lord and master, Gabrielle.” -IVAN EVERLEY

A Breath of Snow and Ashes (Outlander #6) by Diana Gabaldon

A Breath of Snow and Ashes (Outlander #6)

by Diana Gabaldon

 

A Breath of Snow and Ashes continues the extraordinary story of 18th-century Scotsman Jamie Fraser and his 20th-century wife, Claire.

The year is 1772, and on the eve of the American Revolution, the long fuse of rebellion has already been lit. Men lie dead in the streets of Boston, and in the backwoods of North Carolina, isolated cabins burn in the forest.

With chaos brewing, the governor calls upon Jamie Fraser to unite the backcountry and safeguard the colony for King and Crown. But from his wife Jamie knows that three years hence the shot heard round the world will be fired, and the result will be independence — with those loyal to the King either dead or in exile. And there is also the matter of a tiny clipping from The Wilmington Gazette, dated 1776, which reports Jamie’s death, along with his kin. For once, he hopes, his time-traveling family may be wrong about the future.

 

 

 

It was great getting to see America in 1776 and seeing the challenges brought forth by the American Revolution for Claire and Jamie.  They know whats going to happen (thanks to Claire) and yet trying to be for the revolution while hiding the fact from the Crown (which gave them the property they are currently residing on) becomes increasingly hard.  I am really enjoying this series and am sad thinking that I only have 2 more books until it’s over.  I highly recommend this book!

 

 

 

 

 

Diana Gabaldon is the author of the award-winning, #1 NYT-bestselling OUTLANDER novels, described by Salon magazine as “the smartest historical sci-fi adventure-romance story ever written by a science Ph.D. with a background in scripting ‘Scrooge McDuck’ comics.”

The adventure began in 1991 with the classic OUTLANDER (“historical fiction with a Moebius twist”), has continued through seven more New York Times-bestselling novels— DRAGONFLY IN AMBER, VOYAGER, DRUMS OF AUTUMN, THE FIERY CROSS, A BREATH OF SNOW AND ASHES, AN ECHO IN THE BONE, and WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD, with more than twenty-eight million copies in print worldwide.

The series is published in 26 countries and 23 languages, and includes THE OUTLANDISH COMPANION, Volumes One and Two, which are nonfiction (well, relatively) works which provide details on the settings, background, characters, research, and writing of the first eight novels in the Outlander series of novels. Gabaldon (it’s pronounced “GAA-bull-dohn”—rhymes with “stone”) has also written several books in a sub-series featuring Lord John Grey (a major minor character from the main series): LORD JOHN AND THE PRIVATE MATTER,  LORD JOHN AND THE BROTHERHOOD OF THE BLADE, LORD JOHN AND THE HAND OF DEVILS, and THE SCOTTISH PRISONER.

Returning to her comic-book roots, she has also written a graphic novel titled THE EXILE (set within the OUTLANDER universe and featuring the main characters from OUTLANDER), but told from the viewpoint of Jamie Fraser and his godfather, Murtagh. The graphic novel is illustrated by Hoang Nguyen, and published by Del-Rey.

The eighth and most recent major novel in the OUTLANDER series, WRITTEN IN MY OWN HEART’S BLOOD, was released on June 10, 2014 in the U.S.A. and Canada. The book made its debut as number one on the New York Times bestseller list in the hardcover category and combined e-book and hardcover category! And the book is also a bestseller in Canada.

Diana is serving as a Co-Producer and advisor for the popular Outlander TV series, produced by the Starz network and Tall Ship Productions and distributed by Sony International, which is based on her novels. She has written a script for an episode of the series, also.

Her main current writing project is the ninth major novel in the OUTLANDER series, GO TELL THE BEES THAT I AM GONE.

Dr. Gabaldon holds three degrees in science: Zoology, Marine Biology, and a Ph.D. in Quantitative Behavioral Ecology, (plus an honorary degree as Doctor of Humane Letters, which entitles her to be “Diana Gabaldon, Ph.D., D.H.L.”  She supposes this is better than “Diana Gabaldon, Phd.X,”) and spent a dozen years as a university professor with an expertise in scientific computation before beginning to write fiction.  She has written scientific articles and textbooks, worked as a contributing editor on the MacMillan ENCYCLOPEDIA OF COMPUTERS, founded the scientific-computation journal SCIENCE SOFTWARE QUARTERLY, and has written numerous comic-book scripts for Walt Disney.  None of this has anything whatever to do with her novels, but there it is.

Diana and her husband, Douglas Watkins, have three adult children and live mostly in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The Fiery Cross (Outlander #5) by Diana Gabaldon

10967

The Fiery Cross (Outlander #5)

by Diana Gabaldon

 

The dazzling fifth volume of Diana Gabaldon’s extraordinary Outlander saga, featuring 18th-century Scotsman James Fraser and his 20th-century time-traveling wife, Claire Randall.

The year is 1771, and war is coming. Jamie Fraser’s wife tells him so. Little as he wishes to, he must believe it, for hers is a gift of dreadful prophecy—a time-traveler’s certain knowledge.

Born in the year of Our Lord 1918, Claire Randall served England as a nurse on the battlefields of World War II, and in the aftermath of peace found fresh conflicts when she walked through a cleftstone on the Scottish Highlands and found herself an outlander, an English lady in a place where no lady should be, in a time—1743—when the only English in Scotland were the officers and men of King George’s army.

Now wife, mother, and surgeon, Claire is still an outlander, out of place, and out of time, but now, by choice, linked by love to her only anchor—Jamie Fraser. Her unique view of the future has brought him both danger and deliverance in the past; her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through the perilous years ahead—or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes….

Grand, sweeping, utterly unforgettable, The Fiery Cross is riveting entertainment, a vibrant tapestry of history and human drama.

 

 

 

 

This book has Claire, Jamie, Brianna, and Roger all together, finally.  I found this one started off slow, but got me pulled in and unable to put it down after a few chapters. This one has lots of mystery and heart.  It kept me on my toes.  I highly recommend!

Drums of Autumn (Outlander #4) by Diana Gabaldon

411a38YSkkL

Drums of Autumn (Outlander #4)

by Diana Gabaldon

 

It began at an ancient Scottish stone circle. There, a doorway, open to a select few, leads into the past—or the grave. Dr. Claire Randall survived the extraordinary passage, not once but twice.

Her first trip swept her into the arms of Jamie Fraser, an eighteenth-century Scot whose love for her became a legend—a tale of tragic passion that ended with her return to the present to bear his child. Her second journey, two decades later, brought them together again in the American colonies. But Claire had left someone behind in the twentieth century—their daughter, Brianna….

Now Brianna has made a disturbing discovery that sends her to the circle of stones and a terrifying leap into the unknown. In search of her mother and the father she has never met, she is risking her own future to try to change history … and to save their lives. But as Brianna plunges into an uncharted wilderness, a heartbreaking encounter may strand her forever in the past … or root her in the place she should be, where her heart and soul belong….

 

 

 

 

I loved this book so very much! Having Brianna back in the 1700s with Claire and Jamie was a dream come true! This book went by so fast because I was so into it.  I highly recommend this entire series! You will not be disappointed!

Contest Time Once Again: Flash Fiction

KaylaAnn

That’s right, you heard me! I am hosting a third contest through my blog!

In October 2017, I hosted a Poetry Contest that was not only a success but also a ton of fun! I got to meet amazing poets from around the globe and enjoy their work. In December 2017, I held a Blogmas Contest that really encouraged bloggers to interact with one another.

Now, I am hoping to connect with some writers (poets or no; new or old followers) who are ready to write some Flash Fiction!

What is flash fiction? It is a story told in 100 words or less. Some of the most poignant stories can also be the shortest. One of the most famous works attributed to Hemingway is a six-word short story:

“For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”

Doesn’t that just send chills up your spine?

Here is a sample of my flash…

Voyager (Outlander #3) by Diana Gabaldon

Voyager (Outlander #3)

by Diana Gabaldon

 

Their passionate encounter happened long ago by whatever measurement Claire Randall took. Two decades before, she had traveled back in time and into the arms of a gallant eighteenth-century Scot named Jamie Fraser. Then she returned to her own century to bear his child, believing him dead in the tragic battle of Culloden. Yet his memory has never lessened its hold on her… and her body still cries out for him in her dreams.

Then Claire discovers that Jamie survived. Torn between returning to him and staying with their daughter in her own era, Claire must choose her destiny. And as time and space come full circle, she must find the courage to face the passion and pain awaiting her…the deadly intrigues raging in a divided Scotland… and the daring voyage into the dark unknown that can reunite or forever doom her timeless love.

 

 

 

 

 

WOW!! This book was OUTSTANDING!! I absolutely loved it. This is definitely my favorite book in the series so far.  So much happens in this book, most important being that Claire and Jamie finally reunite.  It was so great seeing them back together.  I literally could not put the book down.  I read while cooking, cleaning, folding clothes, etc.  There were lots of shockers and I cannot wait for Season 3 of the show to return.  I very highly recommend this book!
