Requested a few ARC’s

Published 05/02/2014 by leannecrabtree

These are the two latest ARC’s I’ve been accepted for and will be reviewing shortly:

Stolen Songbird:

For five centuries, a witch’s curse has bound the trolls to their city beneath the ruins of Forsaken Mountain. Time enough for their dark and nefarious magic to fade from human memory and into myth. But a prophesy has been spoken of a union with the power to set the trolls free, and when Cécile de Troyes is kidnapped and taken beneath the mountain, she learns there is far more to the myth of the trolls than she could have imagined.

Cécile has only one thing on her mind after she is brought to Trollus: escape. Only the trolls are clever, fast, and inhumanly strong. She will have to bide her time, wait for the perfect opportunity.

But something unexpected happens while she’s waiting – she begins to fall for the enigmatic troll prince to whom she has been bonded and married. She begins to make friends. And she begins to see that she may be the only hope for the half-bloods – part troll, part human creatures who are slaves to the full-blooded trolls. There is a rebellion brewing. And her prince, Tristan, the future king, is its secret leader.

As Cécile becomes involved in the intricate political games of Trollus, she becomes more than a farmer’s daughter. She becomes a princess, the hope of a people, and a witch with magic powerful enough to change Trollus forever.

Sempre:

A sexy novel about two seventeen-year-olds—one a victim of human trafficking; the other the son of the man who enslaved her—who fall in love and question everything they ever believed…

Haven Antonelli and Carmine DeMarco grew up under vastly different circumstances. Haven, a second-generation slave, was isolated in the middle of the desert, her days full of hard work and terrifying abuse. Carmine, born into a wealthy Mafia family, lived a life of privilege and excess.

Now, a twist of fate causes their worlds to collide. Entangled in a web of secrets and lies, they learn that while different on the surface, they have more in common than anyone would think.

In a world full of chaos, where money and power rule, Haven and Carmine yearn to break free, but a string of events that began before either of them were born threatens to destroy them instead. Murder and betrayal are a way of life, and nothing comes without a price—especially not freedom. But how much will they have to sacrifice? Can they escape their pasts? And, most of all, what does it mean to be free?

Not had much time

Published 28/06/2013 by leannecrabtree

Well I haven’t really had much time to write this past week because I’ve offered to look through Natalie Herzer’s stories for her for any typo’s before she offers them out as Read-it-Review-it titles. I’m probably managing about 30/40 pages in a morning/midday before I have to start getting ready for work in the evening as Fire Marshall/Safety Steward at Rotherham United F.C.

Fingers crossed, I’ll have more time next week and will start implementing my plot in Book 2 of the “Shifter Romance Novella” series.

As for my reviewing, I’m 64% through The Silver Chain and have been invited to review another book:

the sundering

I’m not entirely sure what it’s about because it didn’t explain on NetGalley, so if anyone can fill me on that I’d be grateful 😀

My request for White Trash Beautiful has also been accepted:

I think I just need to take a week or two to read through these ARC’s I’ve been approved for and some others but that probably wont happen for a while yet :/

Back to my Kindle

Published 10/06/2013 by leannecrabtree

So after finishing Dreams of a Dark Warrior earlier on (it was amazing! (Immortals After Dark is such a brilliant series and if you haven’t read them yet, I totally recommend you do; if you like paranormal romance, that is)) I’m going back to my kindle to work through my list of ARC’s again. I was going to read Acid by Emma Pass but the file hasn’t come through and neither has Fire Inside by Kristen Ashley (I’m trying to sort this out) so I’ve rearranged my reading list (see tab “Reading List” above) and I’m going for Faking It by Cora Carmack.

faking it

If you’ve been keeping up with my reviews, you’ll have seen I read Losing It also by Cora Carmack a bit ago and loved it and I have high hopes this will be just as good.

Then I’ll be reading Point of Retreat by Colleen Hoover, the second in the Slammed series. The first being Slammed, which I read a while ago. Then there’s a third book, This Girl which I’m going to buy eventually.

After that I’ll be reading a new Urban Fantasy/Shifter series by Amanda Carlson:

fullblooded

hotblooded

By the time I’ve read these, hopefully Acid and Fire Inside will have come through and they will be next on the list 🙂

More ARC’s

Published 05/06/2013 by leannecrabtree

I’ve received two more ARC’s off NetGalley.

One is Faking It, the follow on to Losing It which I loved. This doesn’t follow Garrick and Bliss but Cade–Bliss’ best friend. If it’s anything like the first, I’m going to fall in love with Cade in the first two chapters and will them on as a couple throughout 😀

The other is Acid, a young adult dystopian story that sounds interesting.

I’m just starting Through the Ever Night, the second in the Under the Never Sky series by Veronica Rossi and then I’ll be reading Savage Nature and then Dreams of a Dark Warrior before I even attempt these three ARC’s I have.
