Stacking The Shelves #25 - Bought, Borrowed & Bagged #9

Saturday, October 08, 2016

Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga´s Reviews and is all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

I am also connecting with Bought Borrowed & Bagged in homage of Barron´s Books & Baubles from Karen Marie Moning´s smash hit series, Fever, hosted by Braine at Talk Supe.

Usually, I don´t buy ebooks; I don´t like the thought that I am, at least here in Europe, only buy the license which allows me the download of the ebook to my device. But I don´t actually own it, no matter how handy they are. And besides that, why pay for an ebook 10 bucks when I can have the print edition for only two more? But when I saw the cover of Academia of the Beast in a newsletter and saw the price, I couldn´t resist. Please note that the price of the ebook can change at any time, so don´t be mad at me, if you won´t get it for -,99 cents anymore.

Bought books

Raised in fear of her power. Sold and betrayed by her lover. Allyn escaped the hunters once before. As a witch, she risks capture every day. Now, she lives in the slums of the opulent kingdom of Elastria, where the Winter Winds are brutal, and force everyone into their homes for the entire season. When one of her best friends receives an invitation to the end of season Winter Ball, Allyn would rather sulk about her boyfriend leaving her instead of partying at the most exclusive club in the kingdom. A chance encounter with the crown prince of Elastria sparks hope for a brighter future, one where she might find true love. All hopes are dashed when she´s tricked by her ex-boyfriend and turned in for the bounty of her head. Now, a prisoner in an eerie castle where the servants are … peculiar, the walls whisper, and the prince´s mysterious twin brother struggles with the decision to keep or kill the witch he´s hunted and once lost, Allyn struggles with the desire to tame the beast within the prince, or escape to freedom.The curse of the castle is strong. But, the magic hiding inside Allyn might be more powerful than she or the prince realized.

Special Agent Will Trent has something to hide. Something he doesn´t want Dr. Sara Linton – the woman he loves – to find out. He´s gone undercover in Macon, Georgia and put his life at risk. And he knows Sara will never forgive him if she discovers the truth. But when a young patrolman is shot and left for dead, Sara is forced to confront the past and a woman she hoped never to see again. And without even knowing it, she becomes involved in the same case Will is working on. Soon both of their lives are in danger.

Happy reading

I am Vi, avid reader, book blogger and painter who loves to talk and write about books. A day without one in my hands is a wasted one. Skilled florist with a degree in writing - oh yes, that works. I like many genres, but horror is nothing for me! Have fun.
