The next Christmas my mom got wise and bought me a reading light. She’d given up trying to make me go to sleep and finally just wanted to protect my eyes. Somewhere is those years, my younger brother started giving me fancy bookmarks. Some of them are still stuffed in my old books (the one’s I am not able to give away.)
For my friends who read romance, the book I chose this year is . This book hits the right notes of romance, humor, and life lessons and is a delight from start to finish. I’ve also given .
Gift certificates to the local bookstore abound in our family stockings. I wouldn’t be surprised if I receive a Kindle Fire this year. My kindle is a few years and, has one mark on the screen, but it's fine by me. It is my husband who looks at it and shakes his head. For him, the technology is exciting. For me, it is still all about the story.

Her heart longs for justice, but her body clamors for sin.
Once the darling of high society, Mazie Chetwyn knows firsthand how quickly the rich and powerful turn their backs on the less fortunate. Orphaned, penniless and determined to defy their ruthless whims, she joins forces with a local highwayman who steals from the rich to give to the poor.
Then the pawn broker snitches, and Mazie is captured by the Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire. A man who is far too handsome, far too observant…and surely as corrupt as his father once was.
Sensible, rule-driven Trent Carthwick, twelfth Earl of Radford, is certain the threat of the gallows will prompt the villagers’ beloved Angel of Kindness to reveal the highwayman’s identity. But his bewitching captive volunteers nothing—except a sultry, bewildering kiss.
And so the games begin. Trent feints, Mazie parries. He threatens, she pretends nonchalance. He cajoles, she rebuffs. Thwarted at every turn, Trent probes deep into her one vulnerability—her past. There he finds the leverage he needs and a searing truth that challenges all he believes about right and wrong.
