Ophelia London is the author of ABBY ROAD, the Perfect Kisses series including: PLAYING AT LOVE, SPEAKING OF LOVE, the upcoming "still working on the title" (Nov `13), and the new adultDEFINITELY, MAYBE IN LOVE (Oct 28th). She belongs to RWA and DARA.
This was an awesome book! It totally took NA to a different level with its uniqueness and made me want to read more by this author! I fell in love with Spring Honeycutt from the first few pages. She does not care what people think of her and she stands by what she believes in. She is a vegetarian, wears her hair in these ridiculous braids (all the time), and is fighting to keep our planet alive and thriving. She really just wants to get good grades until she can graduate and literally save the world. That is until her professor tells her that her thesis needs work and the new guys move in next door. Her life starts spiraling out of control and she is not sure if she is ready for the change? Ooh la la!
Henry Knightly reminded me a little of another possessive, stern man that we all know and love...Christian Gray! Henry is very put together, and Spring thinks that she has him all figured out, but does she? Henry speaks with authority, is gorgeous and really doesn't let anyone in but is really good at asking questions and trying to figure people out. It isn't until the end of the book that we really get a good look at Henry and see a whole different side of him. As usual, it didn't matter, I had another book boyfriend by then:) Ms. London did a wonderful job with creating this story. I have never read Pride & Prejudice, but after reading this, I have to add it to my TBR. The words just flowed and honestly, I could have read 100 more pages about these two lovely characters. I am off and running to find other titles that she has written!
Trouble Comes Knocking By Mary Duncanson
It’s hard not to answer when trouble comes knocking
A girl who can’t forget…
Twenty-two-year-old Lucy Carver is like Sherlock Holmes in ballet flats, but her eidetic memory is more albatross than asset, and something she usually keeps hidden. When she notices that something’s amiss at her dead-end job, she jumps at the chance to finally use her ability for good. That is, until, a man is murdered, and she becomes the target of the killer.
A detective on his first case…
Detective Eli Reyes is overbearing, pompous, way too hot for Lucy’s own good, and seems as determined to ruin her relationship with her boyfriend, John, as finding the murderer. He brings Lucy in on the case, thinking she can help him get to the truth, only to cut her loose when he realizes he’s gotten far more than he ever bargained for.
A past that won’t go away…
When memories from her childhood invade her present, Lucy discovers a mystery bigger than she could have imagined. With the killer still after her, and Eli nowhere to be found, she takes things into her own hands, determined to expose the truth no matter what—before trouble comes knocking…again.
Mary Duncanson, who also writes as Mary Malcolm, lives in North Texas with a menagerie of animals and feral roommates. She is currently looking to adopt a husband, preferably housebroken, preferably as silly as her. When she’s not corraling her household, she’s talking to the characters in her head and hoping they talk back. When she’s not doing all that, she can be found wandering around Central Market with a happy, drooly foodie look on her face. Do not judge her, it is her Mecca. Mary’s been writing since she was a teenager though spent quite a few years studying toward becoming a doctor before she realized she wanted to be a full-time author. Unfortunately, the people who own her student loans still want to be paid for the years they supported her medical dreams. Mary lives on a steady diet of coffee and chocolate and believes, like Eleanor Roosevelt, that people should believe in the beauty of their dreams. She also believes people should ignore the word should because really, it’s kind of a judgmental word. Mary dreams of one day living as a full-time, well paid novelist (hint, hint) and also of one day traveling to Chile to pay homage to her soul mate, Pablo Neruda.
Sneak Peak: “Come to work, he said. I’ll get you a cab, he said. Yeah, I bet he has some beautiful ocean-view property in Arizona to sell me, too.” It didn’t matter how good a kisser the guy was, John should never have left me alone at a crime scene involving a dead body on our first date.
Hushed By Kelley York
He’s loved her. Killed for her. Yet he may not be able to save her.
Eighteen-year-old Archer couldn’t protect his best friend, Vivian, from what happened when they were kids. Since then, he’s never stopped trying to shelter her from everything else. It doesn’t matter that Vivian only uses him when skipping from one toxic relationship to another. Archer is always there, reeled in and tossed out, waiting to be noticed.
Then Evan Bishop breezes into town with a warm smile and calming touch, and Archer can’t deny his attraction to him. Evan is the only person who keeps him around without a single string attached. And the harder Archer falls for Evan, the more he sees Vivian for the manipulative hot-mess she really is.
But Viv has her hooks in deep, and once she finds out Archer’s dark secret, she threatens to expose the truth if she doesn’t get what she wants. And what she wants is for him to end his relationship with Evan...permanently.
Once upon a time, Kelley York was born in central California. And it's there she she still resides with her lovely wife, step-daughter, and an abundance of cats, while fantasizing about moving to England or Ireland. She has a fascination with bells and animals, is a lover of video games, Doctor Who, manga and anime, and likes to pretend she’s a decent photographer. Her life goal is to find a real unicorn. Or at least write about them.
Kelley is a sucker for dark fiction. She loves writing twisted characters, tragic happenings, and bittersweet endings that leave you wondering and crying. Character development takes center stage in her books because the bounds of a person's character and the workings of their mind are limitless.
Her first book, HUSHED, was released by Entangled Publishing in December 2011. Her second and third books, HOLLOWED and SUICIDE WATCH, were released in 2012, and her next Entangled book, MADE OF STARS, is slated for October 1st, 2013.
Sneak Peak:He had this, though, didn’t he? Whatever this was. This friendship, this companionship, this love. It was unlike anything he’d felt before, and he wanted to revel in it…even if he didn’t deserve it.
