Lady Thief by A.C. Gaughen
Series: Scarlet #2
Publication Date: February 11th 2014
Book 1: Scarlet
Scarlet’s true identity has been revealed, but her future is uncertain. Her forced marriage to Lord Gisbourne threatens Robin and Scarlet’s love, and as the royal court descends upon Nottingham for the appointment of a new Sheriff, the people of Nottingham hope that Prince John will appoint their beloved Robin Hood. But Prince John has different plans for Nottingham that revolve around a fateful secret from Scarlet’s past even she isn’t yet aware of. Forced to participate at court alongside her ruthless husband, Scarlet must bide her time and act the part of a noblewoman—a worthy sacrifice if it means helping Robin’s cause and a chance at a future with the man she loves. With a fresh line of intrigue and as much passion as ever, the next chapter in Scarlet’s tale will have readers talking once again.
Oh my gosh, how did I not know about this??? I can’t believe I didn’t know the second this book was releasing its cover and blurb. AHHH!!!
Scarlet was one of my favorite reads last year, and I was SO happy that the author was going to write not one, but TWO more books after Scarlet! Because Scarlet was freaking amazing, and I highly recommend it if you’re into fantasy, romance, and a badass heroine.
And yay! We get more Rob!!! *squeals*
The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith
Publication Date: April 15th 2014
Lucy and Owen meet somewhere between the tenth and eleventh floors of a New York City apartment building, on an elevator rendered useless by a citywide blackout. After they’re rescued, they spend a single night together, wandering the darkened streets and marveling at the rare appearance of stars above Manhattan. But once the power is restored, so is reality. Lucy soon moves to Edinburgh with her parents, while Owen heads out west with his father.
Lucy and Owen’s relationship plays out across the globe as they stay in touch through postcards, occasional e-mails, and — finally — a reunion in the city where they first met.
A carefully charted map of a long-distance relationship, Jennifer E. Smith’s new novel shows that the center of the world isn’t necessarily a place. It can be a person, too.
What an adorable cover! I just really love the covers for Jennifer E. Smith’s books. Anyway, I’ll be adding this to my to-read list. I’m not exactly a huge fan of Jennifer E. Smith (The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight was meh, but I really liked This is What Happy Looks Like), but I’m willing to read The Geography of You and Me. I’m definitely judging a book by its cover here lol.
Shooting Scars by Karina Halle
Series: The Artists Trilogy #2
Publication Date: August 20th 2013
Sometimes the right choice can be the deadliest.
When Ellie Watt made the ultimate sacrifice for Camden McQueen, she never thought it would be easy. But walking away with her ex-lover, Javier Bernal, in order to ensure Camden’s safety has brought a whole new set of dangers. With Javier’s plans for Ellie growing more secretive by the moment, Ellie must find a way to stay ahead of the game before her past swallows her whole.
Meanwhile, Camden’s new life is short-lived. Fueled by revenge and pursued by authorities, he teams up with an unlikely partner in order to save Ellie. But as Camden toes the line between love and retribution, he realizes that in order to get back the woman he loves, he may have to lose himself in the process. He might just turn into the very man he’s hunting.
Told in dual POV from Camden and Ellie.
SO excited to read this one! I’ll probably be starting it today, because I just can’t wait for more Ellie and Camden
and Javier! I LOVED Sins & Needles (my review here) and it ended on a freaking cliffhanger, so obviously I have to read Shooting Scars asap.
Breaking Nova by Jessica Sorensen
Series: Nova #1
Publication Date: September 3rd 2013
Nova Reed used to have dreams-of becoming a famous drummer, of marrying her true love. But all of that was taken away in an instant. Now she’s getting by as best she can, though sometimes that means doing things the old Nova would never do. Things that are slowly eating away at her spirit. Every day blends into the next . . . until she meets Quinton Carter. His intense, honey brown eyes instantly draw her in, and he looks just about as broken as she feels inside.
Quinton once got a second chance at life-but he doesn’t want it. The tattoos on his chest are a constant reminder of what he’s done, what he’s lost. He’s sworn to never allow happiness into his life . . . but then beautiful, sweet Nova makes him smile. He knows he’s too damaged to get close to her, yet she’s the only one who can make him feel alive again. Quinton will have to decide: does he deserve to start over? Or should he pay for his past forever?
I got this from Netgalley (in exchange for an honest review), and I’m so happy! I really liked Jessica Sorensen’s The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden (but weirdly, I wasn’t a fan of The Secret of Ella and Micha), so I’m excited to be reading another of her books! Which reminds me, I have to read The Redemption of Callie and Kayden asap too!
