I went to a book party on Facebook Friday and discovered Ms. Downey. Her book Privileged is the first book in the American Prince series.
Here’s the back cover blurb: “Sometimes Prince Charming has a dark side.
Small-town girl Katie Morris knew that attending an all-girls college near Yale University, she might meet the sons and daughters of the nation’s leaders. But she never imagined one such son would strive to capture her heart with his promises of a happily-ever-after. However, a dark nature lurks inside her prince, which clashes with his charm. Will Katie be able to hang on to her fairy tale when the man she loves turns into the man she fears?
Since the moment of William Wilkerson’s birth, he had been groomed to take his father’s place in ruling the nation behind the scenes, deciding what laws get passed and who governs. But ruling requires the ability to control, manipulate, and the more William becomes the man his father desires of him, the more he finds himself turning into what he vowed never to be: a man who is a threat to the young woman he loves.
When a deal with terrorists orchestrated by his father is revealed, his family’s power is threatened, forcing William to make a choice: Sacrifice the young woman he can’t live without, or let everything his father has built, collapse. What shall he choose?”
This book sounds so intriguing and I look forward to reading it. You can find out more about Ms. Downey on her Website and Facebook. You can purchase Privileged on Amazon (Psst: it might still be free on Kindle).
This is book two in the Landry’s True Colors series. Hopefully, book two is stand alone because it sounds interesting.
Here’s what it’s about: “Landry Albright hopes the new year will start off in an amazing way—instead she has to deal with more frenemy issues, boy drama, and having most of her besties make the cheerleading squad without her. Suddenly, it seems like all anyone can talk about is starting high school next year—something she finds terrifying.
Landry gets her first boyfriend, but then gets dumped just as things come to a head with her friends. She feels lost and left out, but finds good advice from what she considers an unlikely source. Landry has to deal with learning how to speak up for what’s right, tell the truth (even when it hurts), and how to get past the fear of failure as she gets another shot at competing in the American Ingénue modeling competition.”
Ms. Jordan is an old favorite. I’ve read her other books so when I saw this book I went ahead and downloaded it to my eReader.
Here’s why I’m excited: “Ten years ago, Violet Collingsworth left the town founded by her family, eager to escape a domineering grandmother and a past filled with hurt. Finally able to pursue her own dreams, Violet has spent the last decade travelling and enjoying adventures in the outdoors she loves so much. But now her grandmother’s death has brought her back to Collingsworth and to the conflicted familial relationships of her past. Settling down anywhere, let alone Collingsworth, was not part of her agenda, but a run-in with the town sheriff has her reconsidering.
Sheriff Dean Marconett had heard plenty about the Collingsworth sister who loved to travel, but he never imagined he’d be so drawn to her when they finally met. Will he be able to convince Violet to consider settling down in the town she fled from so long ago? Or will her adventuresome spirit and the hurts and fears of her past drive her away from a chance at love?”
