From the Cover:
A huge fan of Jane Austin, Danielle hopes to find her own Mr. Darcy when she leaves Colorado to attend art school in London. Of course she knows it’s silly to wish for that, naive even. But she’s met enough males who lacked respect for women, a growing trend it seemed. And at nineteen...well.... However, on only her second night there she gets lost and is threatened by a stalker who proves to be immune to her martial arts training. Before she is completely overpowered, she is then saved by Ethan Deveroux.

While Danielle does find the romance she seeks in Ethan, he’s no Mr. Darcy. Her hero is held by a spell which fractures their chance at a happy ending. During the day Ethan is closer to mortal than immortal and can date her like any other man. Yet, as the sun sets, the powerful magic of an ancient curse returns and the evil of that spell is revealed. When that magic begins, Danielle's fairytale romance ends because Ethan Deveroux is a vampire.

Tifferz Take-
Okay guys we have a Must read new author Cheri Schmidt. I can honestly say I love this book and can't wait till the next two come out! Yup we are lucky this is the first book in the three book series! I was quickly pulled into this story and loved every minute of it. Cheri is a very creative writer and knows how to tell a story. This book contains magic, vampires (good and evil) lots of passionate kissing (this is a clean romance), fairies, suspense and some unexpected twists! This book is for everyone. I really enjoyed how Cheri told a modern day story with an excellent plot and romance. You will not want to put this book down. Worth every penny. A must to own. I will be reading this one again very soon. As I can't seem to get the story out of my mind!!!!

Now the girl's handsome guardian, Clint Parker, fears he can't be what Lilly needs. Unless Maegan can show him what faith and family are all about.

A Mother for Mule Hollow by Debra Clopton

Widowed mother Olivia Dancer arrives in Mule Hollow, Texas, to check on her nephew—and his single father.

Until they're both won over by the town matchmakers and a little boy who just wants a mama.

Tifferz Take-
I received an arc copy of Small-Town Moms. I was super excited when it showed up in my mailbox! This is my first read from both authors and won't be my last.
Who doesn't like a sweet novella made for Mothers Day. These stories will warm your heart. I thought both books were well thought out and intertwined perfectly. I was not sure they would be able to pull it off, but they did. I think my favorite part was Epilogue. It tied things up perfectly and left me the reader very satisfied. I could relate to the characters and felt both stories were not too pushy with the religion. I have read some Christan romances and they make me want to gag. This had reference throughout both stories to God, reading the Bible, prayer and Church but it was done in a tasteful way and . I would recommend this read to anyone who wants a quick pick me up! I will be looking for more from both authors.

Tiger's Quest (book 2 in the Tiger's series) by Colleen Houck

From the Cover:



Kelsey Hayes is no ordinary college freshman. In fact, the eighteen-year-old girl has just returned from India, where she risked her life—and her heart—to rescue a handsome Indian prince from a terrible curse. Back home in Oregon, Kelsey is determined to move on, despite the lingering feelings she has for the man she left behind. She meets Li, a completely average guy who offers the promise of an ordinary, curse-free life. But just when Kelsey is ready to move on, Ren reenters her life, on a quest to reclaim her heart. Danger threatens their newly rekindled love and to save him, Kelsey must journey with someone else—a man who wants her for himself. The saga begun in Tiger’s Curse continues in Tiger’s Quest, as Kelsey finds herself in an epic battle between good and evil. From the shores of the Pacific Northwest to the jungles of India, the mountains of Nepal and Tibet, and the mystical realm of Shangri-la, this suspenseful tale of love, sacrifice, and redemption is not to be missed.


Tifferz Take-

I am lucky to have received an ARC copy of Tiger's Quest. I was simply giddy when I got it in the mail. I even did a little happy dance. You see, I have become obsessed with the Tiger series all over again. (I actually read the first two books in the series when Colleen was self published) I just love these books. It is going to take a awhile to get them out of my system.

Tiger's Quest will be take you on an emotional roller coaster ride as Kelsey, Ren and Kishan's adventure continues to break the second part of the curse. The book has two main parts: In the first part of the book, Kelsey is back in Oregon going to school. I like seeing how she copes with Ren back in India. The second part of the story details the adventures of Kelsey and Kishan as they are tested both individually and together. I know you all love Ren and I do too, but in this book we get to know Kishan a lot better. Though I am a true fan of Ren the white tiger, Kishan the black tiger has warmed his way into my heart as well.

I really can't thank Colleen enough for sharing her Tigers with us. This book has everything. Trust me you will love it. I am hoping as the adventure continues and they break more of the curse both Ren and Kishan will have a happy ending. But we will have to wait and see as book three Tiger's Voyage comes out this Nov. 1st, 2011.

This is a MUST have for your library. I just finished it and am going to read it again. I have already pre-ordered my hardback. I hope one day to meet Colleen and have her sign my books. So come to NC Colleen!!!!

Check out Susan Hatler's website here:
http://susanhatler.com/

From the cover:
The Boyfriend Bylaws is a contemporary romance novella: Melanie Porter has been dumped—again. When others accuse her of “being in love with being in love,” she agrees to let her best friend, Patti, step in and direct her dating life with The Boyfriend Bylaws.
EXCERPT Rule #1: No giving out your phone number until approved to do so.
Rule #2: Must obtain permission to accept any date invitation.
Rule #3: No bringing up marriage, kids or the future.
Rule #4: No going to first base without authorization.
Amended Rule #4: No going to first base, or any other base, without authorization.

Rule #6: New rules may be added as Patti Hartley deems necessary. Memorize it, live by it, and happy dating! . . . . “His name is Nick,” I said. “He seems like a total gentleman, not to mention he’s insanely gorgeous. Can I get permission to go on a date with him before he asks me out?” Patti scoffed, stretched her leg out, and reached for her right foot. “No way.” Why did she have to be so difficult? I was playing by her rules. “What’s the point of waiting until he asks me out, and then calling you? That’s just stupid.” “Why should you wait? Let’s see. Brad. Paul. Mike. Marcus. And don’t think I didn’t see the wink your co-worker, Matt, gave you at lunch today.”

Tifferz Take:

I received an arc copy of this book from the author. Mythical Voyage is a enchanting story for all ages. I know I will be reading it again soon to my children and have no doubt they will be drawn into the story like I was. The story is well written and thought out. Mythical Voyage is an easy read about a Unicorn and her finding her place. I loved all the drawings throughout the book. It really made this book extra special great job Robin with all the extra detail. This story has plenty of adventure, humor, and some sadness. Overall a delightful read. I would recommend this read.

Arms Of An Angle by Linda Boulanger



Check out Linda Boulanger's website here:
http://www.lindaboulanger.com/

From the Cover: Being wealthy and beautiful doesn’t promise an automatic ticket for happiness. Sometimes you need the angelic touch of someone who needs you as much as you need him… Sometimes it’s hard to tell where one set of wings ends and the other begins. Claire is alluring, sensual – called an angel by some, though the woman she’s become is anything but celestial. Her heart is filled with pain so deeply embedded she doesn’t want to live any longer…until fate puts her into the hands of the most virtuous man she’s ever met; a man who needs someone like Claire to help him piece together the shattered bits of his own life.

Tifferz Take- I was a lucky winner of Arms of an Angle! This would be my first book from Linda and will not be my last. This is a sweet romance that makes you feel good when you are done reading it. This had a great message to it and is super clean! Arms of an Angle is a fast paced novella, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. It was a nice little escape from my day! I am looking forward to my next Linda Boulanger book!
