Category : A TBR Read

3 posts

If you read books then you have a To Be Read list/pile/tower of doom — we all do.  They might be physical books on your bookshelf, ebooks stored on your e-readers, or simply books that you’ve written down somewhere to get to “someday”.  Yeah.  We all have TBR piles – and mine is so out of control it isn’t even the slightest bit funny in a haha kinda way but more of an Oh My Goodness what have I done! way.

I’m joining the NovelKnight 2020 Beat the Backlist Reading Challenge with a specific goal in mind.  You can also join or just check it all out at the text link above or by clicking on the graphic link at the top of this post.

I’m picking twenty (20) books from my bought but haven’t read yet TBR – all from various lines of Harlequin™.  This past year has been heavy with NetGalley ARC commitments, way more than I should have but put a book cover in front of me and I’m like a kid in a candy store — they all look so “good”.  But I’ve put the brakes on (or at least I’m tapping the brakes) so that I can get to some of my purchased books from 2019.  All of my adult reading life I have adored Harlequin.  Yet, I haven’t read as many or gotten caught up on ongoing series in recent years due to other online and real-life commitments.  That changes in 2020 as I’m taking more time for my own personal reading experiences and this challenge will work perfectly to help me keep on track to get those bought but not read books into my brain, my heart and off of my Kindle.  I’m determined.

My list of books will follow in the next section of this post.  When read and/or reviewed they will either be crossed out or linked to the review post here at Keeper Bookshelf.


A wounded war hero and a determined wallflower…

After five seasons as a wallflower, Lettie Fairchild is resigned to spinsterhood. Mostly. Determined to claim more meaning for her life than seeing her younger sisters married, she seeks a purpose. She finds what she’s looking for when she happens upon a book describing seven curses that plague London.

Nathaniel Hawke is attempting to adjust to civilian life after retiring from the military, but his injured leg and memories of his time in the service prevent an easy transition. On his long walks during London’s darkest hours, Nathaniel is appalled by what he sees taking place on the dirty streets and alleyways. He is determined to take action. Coming upon a proper, if rebellious, lady in the desolate area both intrigues and frustrates him.

Nathaniel’s disregard for his personal safety infuriates Lettie even as her heart is touched by his determination to aid the city’s neglected children.

As the two wounded souls stumble upon each other time and again in slums and ballrooms, they realize they fight a common cause–and share an unbridled passion.

Will the curse they fight be their downfall? Or will love win the day?

Titles in The Seven Curses of London series include – Loving the Hawke – Charming the Scholar -Rescuing the Earl – Dancing Under the Mistletoe – Tempting the Scoundrel – Falling for the Viscount – Daring the Duke – Wishing Upon A Christmas Star – Gambling for the Governess – Redeeming the Lady

Mackenzie “Mac” Harris fled her hometown of Bluff Point, Maine, after being left at the altar—and seeking solace in the arms of her best friend’s off-limits brother. Now, seven years later, she’s back to attend her best friend’s wedding—safe, or so she thinks, from the mistakes of her youth.

But Gavin Tolliver has never forgotten the woman who has always held his heart. And when Mac rescues a stray puppy named Tulip, only Gavin, the town’s veterinarian, can help. With a little assistance from Tulip, Gavin vows to make Mac realize that their feelings are more than just puppy love.
