Cascada_soaptelor_mic

În timp ce se antrenează pentru o cursă de mountain bike, Mark Lewis, elev în ultimul an de liceu, vede o fată misterioasă, îmbrăcată în nişte haine ciudate, stând în picioare în spatele unei cascade în pădurea din Raleigh, un oraş din Carolina de Nord. Când fata face o remarcă despre maşinăria ciudată pe care merge el, Mark se gândeşte că nu e în regulă ceva cu ea. Iar când Susanna pretinde că este o servitoare-ucenică din anul 1796, băiatul e aproape sigur că e nebună. Şi totuşi vrea să afle mai multe despre ea.

Mark începe o relaţie „la distanţă” cu Susanna prin bariera strălucitoare – şi capricioasă – a Cascadei Şoaptelor. Curios să afle cât mai multe despre perioada în care trăieşte ea şi despre viaţa ei plină de violenţă, Mark se apucă de cercetări istorice – dar cunoaşterea poate fi periculoasă. Curând, el trebuie să facă o alegere dificilă – să rişte să schimbe istoria sau să o condamne pe fata iubită la o viaţă de chin.

 

Careta poate fi comandata de pe site-ul Editurii Leda cu 36,90 lei.

Anunțuri

August și iubirea! Nou în bibliotecă!

Luna august a fost pentru mine o lună a cărților și a iubirii. Soțul meu m-a răsfățat din prima zi a lunii și până azi, 31 august cu o mulțime de cărți. S-a gândit că cel mai frumos cadou cu ocazia împlinirii a doi ani de căsnicie ar fi să-mi cumpere toată luna cărți. Și s-a ținut de promisiune!

20150831_132222

Biblioteca mea a mai crescut și datorită concursului puzzle organizat pe pagina de facebook a Editurii All unde am câștigat 7 cărți minunate pe care abia aștept să le citesc! De la aceasta am primit Jane Austen merge la Hollywood (recenzia aici) de Abby McDonald, o carte de rețete vegetariene, Cinci plimbări prin cartier de Goncalo M. Tavares, Pisicile razboinice de Erin Hunter, Kon-Tiki de Thor Heyerdahl și Pixi în Elveția. Abia aștept să am copii să le citesc aceste povești extraordinare!

Librăria online Elefant, cât și Libris au avut reduceri atractive luna aceasta așa că am reușit să-mi completez anumite colecții.

20150831_132540

Anul trecut am rămas în urmă cu cărțile de la Editura Epica așa că încetul cu încetul îmi revin, iar numărul acestora crește de la lună la lună. Numai luna aceasta mi-am cumpărat cinci cărți, ultima dintre ele, Marea călătorie a lui Amy și Roger, fiind achiziționată azi datorită multiplelor recenzii frumoase pe care le-am citit. E usor sa ma ranesti de Tammara Webber (recenzia aici) am cumpărat-o pentru a afla și varianta lui Lucas și pentru a-mi completa seria. Același scop am avut și cu Te doresc de Jennifer L. Armentrout (recenzia aici). Hopeless. Fără speranță de Colleen Hoover (recenzia aici) este o carte pe care mi-o doresc să o am în casă, alături de celelalte cărți ale ei.

Același scop am avut și atunci când am cumpărat Pur și simplu sexy de Linda Francis Lee, completarea seriei Sexy.

20150831_132436

Suflete pereche de Cecilia Ahern am dorit să o cumpăr imediat ce am văzut filmul. Din păcate în librăriile online sau în cele fizice nu se mai găsea așa că gasit-o, din întâmplare, pe un grup pe facebook. Sunt așa de bucuroasă că am putut să mi-o cumpăr! Filmul mi-a plăcut la nebunie, dar nu se compară cu cartea!!

20150831_132420

Fascinația de Sylvia Day mi-am cumpărat-o pentru că nu puteam să pierd ultima carte scoasă de aceasta pentru completarea seriei Crossfire. Sper să fie penultima carte a seriei și să nu ne mai țină mult în suspans.

Pe acestea două le-am cumpărat pentru că au îndeplinit două criterii importante pentru mine atunci când aleg o carte: copertă și poveste interesantă! Și am avut dreptate!

20150831_132559

Cu Ziarul Libertatea am cumpărat și aceste două cărți de la Cărți Romantice (Lira), mi-a plăcut foarte povestea ce se ascunde în spatele cărții Steaua Ascunsă și m-a surprins Evadarea. Până acum au fost doar răsfoite, urmează să le acord mai multă importanță.

Descriere

No one is like Daemon Black.When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well… There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.

But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.

After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different… And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.

Together we’re stronger… and they know it.

Seria Lux (primele două volume)

 

Obsidian_cover onix-lux-vol-2_1_produs

O CĂLĂTORIE CAPTIVANTĂ DE LA PRIMA PÂNĂ LA ULTIMA PAGINĂ.

Începuturile sunt întotdeauna dificile.

Când ne-am mutat în Virginia de Vest, chiar înaintea ultimului meu an de liceu, mă resemnasem să am de-a face cu accente ciudate, acces intermitent la internet şi teribil de multăplictiseală… până când am dat cu ochii de vecinul meu sexy, înalt şi cu ochii de un verde straniu. Lucrurile păreau deja să meargă mai bine.

Şi pe urmă a deschis gura.

Daemon este enervant. Arogant. Îmi vine să-l omor. Nu ne în ţelegem deloc. Absolut deloc. Dar când un străin mă atacă şi Daemon efectiv face timpul să încremenească doar cu o simplă mişcare a mâinii, ei bine, ceva… neaşteptat se întâmplă.

Vecinul meu extraterestru sexy a lăsat o urmă pe mine.

Da, aţi auzit bine. Extraterestru. Se pare că Daemon şi sora lui Dee au o galaxie de inamici care vor să le fure abilităţile, iar atingerea lui Daemon mă face să strălucesc asemenea luminilor din Las Vegas.

Singurul fel în care pot rămâne în viaţă în toată povestea asta este să stau cât mai aproape de Daemon, până când amprenta vrăjii extraterestre dispare de pe mine.

Asta dacă nu-l omor mai întâi.

SYNOPSIS

Twenty years, seven letters, and one long-lost love of a lifetime

At age 40, Samantha Vérant’s life is falling apart-she’s jobless, in debt, and feeling stuck… until she stumbles upon seven old love letters from Jean-Luc, the sexy Frenchman she’d met in Paris when she was 19. With a quick Google search, she finds him, and both are quick to realize that the passion they felt 20 years prior hasn’t faded with time and distance.

Samantha knows that jetting off to France to reconnect with a man that she only knew for one sun-drenched, passion-filled day is crazy-but it’s the kind of crazy she’s been waiting for her whole life.

 

Seven Letters from Paris – Excerpt

 

Tonight I’m cooking from the heart, choosing self-belief over fear.
Although I’ve always been a culinary adventuress, experimenting
with recipes ripped from the pages of Bon Appétit and Gourmet since
the age of twelve, Jean-Luc and I usually prepare this particular
meal together—him manning the stove, me the eager sous-chef,
slicing and dicing the parsley, shallots, and garlic. Now, thanks to
his gentle coaching, I’m a little more confident when it comes to
the art of preparing flammable French cuisine. And I can’t let a little
heat scare me out of my own kitchen.
The time has finally come to conquer my anxiety of flambéing—on
my own.
On the first strike, the match hisses to life, trailing a wisp of
smoke. I take a step back, reach out my arm, and touch the lit tip
into the pastis with a steady hand. Flames flare up and the aroma of
the anise-flavored liqueur permeates the kitchen. The blaze settles
into a simmer, and I let out the breath I’ve been holding in. My
technique is still not flawless though; to the cat’s delight, one plump
shrimp tumbles onto the floor. Bella lifts her haunches and pounces
on her prey. I may not have the pan flip down, but I have one very
happy, pint-sized panther.
After setting the timer, I twist the knob on the burner to low, 

which will allow the flavors of the pastis to infuse the shrimp just a
bit more. Jean-Luc has already set the table outside, and I step out
into the garden to join him. “Wine?” he asks.
I nod and take my seat within earshot of the kitchen, noting
my husband’s handsome profile, his manicured sideburns, and his
chiseled jaw with the five o’clock shadow as he uncorks the bottle of
Cabernet d’Anjou.
I am just as attracted to him as I’d been when we first met over
twenty years ago.
Right as we’re about to clink glasses, the timer in the kitchen
buzzes. Before I can move a muscle, Jean-Luc says, “Stay. Stay.” He
flies out of his chair and into the house. A few seconds later, he
rushes back to the deck and places a glossy black paper bag on my
dinner plate. I can make out the name of a jeweler: 18k, Montres
et Bijoux.
I point, my mouth dropping open. “But you weren’t supposed to
get me anything—”
“I wanted to.” He shrugs and blows air between his lips like only
a Frenchman can do without looking silly.
“But the shrimp—”
“Can wait a minute. I turned the burner off.” He motions to the
bag. “Ouvre-le.”
He doesn’t need to translate his words into English. With a shake
of my head, I reach through layers of hot pink tissue paper to discover
a bracelet resting in a satin-lined box. The clasp is delicate, but
Jean-Luc manages to hitch it in seconds. The strand twists on my
wrist and a small amethyst heart rests on my pulse, its facets glittering
in the candlelight. Something about the way the light flickers on
the jewel, almost beating, brings on a moment of complete clarity. I
look to the starlit sky before meeting Jean-Luc’s gaze, trying to find
my breath. I can only whisper, “Thank you.”
Jean-Luc’s hands clasp onto mine. “Sam, you never, ever have to
thank me.”
Oh, but I do.
Three years ago, when I left a loveless marriage, filed for bankruptcy,
became a dog walker, and moved back in with my parents
in Southern California, I thought things couldn’t get any worse.
But then, in a moment of longing and memory, I used the Internet
to track down Jean-Luc and rekindle an unfinished romance from
decades before. Tonight is our second wedding anniversary.
This is the story of how I rebooted my life and restarted my heart
