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:)
