Surrender the Heart (Surrender to Destiny #1)
by MaryLu Tyndall
Barbour Books (August 1, 2010)


I first discovered MaryLu when her stand alone title The Falcon and the Sparrow was released. I was hooked and have since had everything she writes on my wishlist. Tyndall’s books are far from a typical “sleepy” romantic story awash with cloying frivolity and minimal active content. Rather everything she’s written that I’ve had the pleasure of acquiring proves to be a riveting and adventurous narrative rife with characters that beg for a permanent abode in the readers imagination. I suspect this will be no different from my former experiences with her work and look ofrward to a few hours of much needed escape once I unearth it from my piles. Thanks to the Author and Barbour I received an extra copy of this book so will be including it as a giveaway at some point. (ISBN#9781602601659, 368pp, $12.99)

The King’s Mistress
by Emma Campion
Crown (July 6, 2010)


This was a Read it Forward book that Random House sent me. The title and description sounded enticing although it is a mainstream fiction imprint so will likely have some content certain readers would find problematic. When I review it I will address the content for readers who have standards of what they will or will not read. (ISBN#9780307589255 , 464pp, $26.00)

Premiere (On the Runway #1)
by Melody Carlson
Zondervan (May 7, 2010)

I thoroughly enjoyed Carlson’s Carter House Girls Series and look forward to this new teen series she is launching. Thanks to Zondervan for a review copy. (ISBN#9780310717867, 224pp, $9.99)

Catwalk(On the Runway #2)
by Melody Carlson
Zondervan (May 7, 2010)

This is the sequel to Premiere and will be followed by Spotlight in the fall. Thanks to Zondervan for a review copy. (ISBN#9780310717874, 224pp, $9.99)
