Destiny's Star by Elizabeth Vaughan

She fell from the sky...Bethral is a warrior, as fierce as she is beautiful. But when she is dropped through a portal to the harsh land of the Plains, she is badly injured and must summon all her strength to save the man she secretly loves.
She didn't fall alone...Ezren Silvertongue is a quick-witted storyteller, a weaver of mesmerizing tales, but a man scarred and banished to the Plains along with Bethral for the rogue magic he possesses but cannot control.
Now they must stand together...In an unforgiving land, Bethral and Ezren are confronted with a civil war and a tribe of warriors who have their own code of honor and their own rules of pleasure and partnership. To stay alive, they must learn new customs, confront their enemies, and conceal Ezren's fiery power...
this book left me wanting for moreeee. more of bethral and ezren's love story, more of what happened next. there's definitely a sequel which i have to try and find although it'll be another couple's story...sadly. sigh
their love was so sweet, i was grinning like a chesire cat the whole time i was reading this story. awww sweettt really sweettt, and kidsss had to finally make both of them acknowledge their feelings for each other. hehe it was a good read for me, hope it is for you too. enjoy!!!

Warprize by Elizabeth Vaughan

The daughter of a Warrior King, Xylara was trained as a healer. With her father dead and her incompetent half brother on the throne, the kingdom is in danger of falling to warring Firelanders. Unable to depose her sibling or negotiate peace, Lara serves her people by healing the warriors injured in battle.
But the care she provides is not for her countrymen alone. The wounded Firelander prisoners of war receive the same attention and compassion - and Lara finds herself educated in her enemy's language and customs in return.
She never expected that her deeds, done in good faith, would lead to the handsome and mysterious Firelander Warlord demanding her in exchange for a cease-fire. To save her land and her poeple, Lara sacrifices her freedom to become the warprize...
i borrowed the book because it had our herione as a healer and i've got to admit, i love healers especially. even when i play mmorpgs or online games, i usually choose my class as healer or cleric hehehe just love healing. too bad my brain can't process that much healing information to be really useful in reality though sigh >.<"
this book didn't disappoint me at all. loved the story, loved how she was able to get along with her enemies too. loved her compassionate nature and of course, our hero, kier, was a delight to watch. so gentle and yet, really fierce at times too. hehe i definitely recommend this. it's a good read. enjoy!

Too Good to be True by Kristan Higgins

When Grace Emerson's ex-fiance starts dating her younger sister, extreme measures are called for. To keep everyone from obsessing about her love life, Grace announces that she's seeing someone. Someone wonderful. Someone handsome. Someone completely made up. Who is this Mr Right? Someone...exactly unlike her renegade neighbour Callahan O'Shea. Well, someone with his looks, maybe. His hot body. His knife-sharp sense of humor. His smarts and big heart.

Whoa. No. Callahan O'Shea. Callahan O'Shea is not her perfect man! Not with his unsavory past. So why does Mr Wrong feel so ... right?
when i read this, it made me laugh many times, it also teared me up as well. there were times when my palms were sweaty and i wondered just how is she going to solve her problem. i'm sure many of us have this problem too, being single and others giving us pitying looks.
there's a dose of reality here, humor and romance which made it a good read for me after reading a lot of paranormal genres hehehe it brought me back to earth. of course, the bad parts i wish they didn't have, but then again, that's part and parcel of life. i loved how the story went towards the end, there was a lump in my throat. i'm gonna keep you guessing as to what exactly happened hehehe enjoy the read:)

The Billionaire's Secret Desire by Lietha Wards (online read)

Maximilian King has been in love with Lily, his best friend's sister, ever since he can remember. Well, ever since she was 16 to be exact. And he wants to make her his wife. But how is he to accomplish that when men seem to be flocking to her like bees to the flowers while the woman in question doesn't seem to have an inkling of that and his feelings for her. It's going to be a tough road for him but Maximilian King didn't become a billionaire simply because he was the type to give up easily. Is Lily going to have any say with two over protective men hovering in her life?
hahaha this was a really fresh read for me, our billionaire showed really great restraint. for years in fact. hehe and having to fend off all her suitors??? that shows how crazy for her he is. it's a simple and yet sweet story that i definitely wouldn't mind re-reading in the near future, just to change the pace of what i usually read, which is intense action, paranormal, mystery romances, etc.
i'm sure many of you will enjoy this if you like romance and some humor and of course, yummy billionaires hehehe even luke, lily's brother is a millionaire as well hehe enjoy^_^

Smitten by Payton Lee (online read)

A handsome Prince seeks life mate. He's not looking for physical beauty alone. He needs an intelligent and caring Princess to be his partner. He finds her in his own backyard after searching the world for her. Things aren't too simple. Someone's trying to kill his bride, Princess Rigan.
If you are in the mood for a fairytale romance, then this is it. it's a simple and sweet story, focusing on the love between our prince and princess. the story is written really well and flows smoothly.
they face some problems as royalties are bound to do. but it all works out in the end. i have read this twice now, enjoying the love that our prince has for his princess...although if that were to happen to me in reality, i'd be frustrated as hell, ready to rip my hair out. ;p
anyway, what's even better is that you can read this online at the link below. i hope you enjoy this.

In the Dark of Dreams by Marjorie M. Liu

She could never forget the boy with the ice blue eyes...
She was only twelve when she saw the silver boy on the beach, but Jenny has never stopped dreaming about him. Now she is grown, a marine biologist charting her own course in the family business - a corporation that covertly crosses the boundaries of science into realms of the unknown...and the incredible.
And now he has found her again, her boy grown into a man: Perrin, powerful and masculine, and so much more than human, leaving Jenny weak with desire and aching for his touch.
But with their reunion comes danger. For Perrin and Jenny-and all living creatures-their only hope for preventing the unthinkable lies in a mysterious empire far beneath the sea...and in the power of their dreams.
childhood sweethearts, childhood love, love them. maybe because it shows a strong love that never goes away despite the odds, despite the circumstances, despite the problems. this is the romantic in me speaking. and this story especially was so tragic, i really felt for Perrin here especially but not only him, even the other characters as well. they all have their own troubles. if what had happened to them happened to me in reality, i don't think i'd have been able to survive at all.
before this i read another book by the same author, 'the red heart of jade' where our characters were childhood sweethearts as well. that's another good book with action, mystery and romance, just like this one. they're called a dirk and steele romance. seems like marjorie m. liu is also another one of my favourites now. what's also unique is that she has some asian aspects in her stories which makes me feel close, possibly because i'm asian hehe. parts of the story really made me sad and i really felt for the characters which is really well done by the author, to be able to invoke feelings in the reader is no easy feat. well hope you enjoy this.

Dark Slayer by Christine Feehan

Ivory Malinov's only brethren are the wolves. Abandoned by her family and cast out by everyone she held dear, Ivory has lived centuries without love. She has sustained her sanity by preparing for one mission - to destroy her greatest enemy. Then she picks up the scent of a man. Her salvation. Her lifemate. The curse of all Carpathian women.
Branded a criminal, Razvan is a Dragonseeker from one of the greatest Carpathian lineages, yet he has been raised as its most despised enemy. Fleeing from his lifetime of imprisonment, Razvan seeks the dawn to end his terrible existense. Instead he finds his deliverance in Ivory, the Dark Slayer. In spirit, in flesh and in blood, in love and in war, Ivory and Razvan are made for each other. For as long as they dare to live.
this was one of the best among others in the carpathian novel series for me personally. sigh, i've come across razvan when reading natalya and lara's stories and always wondered what really happened to him, why it happened and how. and now i understand.
both razvan and ivory have suffered so much it's unimaginable. sigh their pain was so much, my heart really felt for them as i haven't really felt for many other carpathians. the descriptions are wonderful, they make your heart throb. you feel so much for both razvan and ivory, their pain, their patience sighhhh it just gave me goosebumps of the good kind when reading this book. razvan has such a great character. never letting anything bring him down, always patient and calm. sighhhh at the same time, strong mentally and physically. sighhh and the wolves were amazing as well hehehe
anyway hope you really like this book. enjoy another great book by christine feehan.
