Books That Touch You Part 1

My love of books exploded when I was introduced to the romance genre as a teenager. How exciting it was to fall in love along with the couple I’m reading about. These books transformed my life and opinion about love. I enjoy meeting the couples and watching them fight to stay together and seeing them live happily ever after. I don’t know there is just something about reading a book that touches your emotions.

Today I want to talk about two books that touched me this month. The first was released this month and the next one will be released next month.

I met the first author at a RWA meeting. She wrote historical romances set in Scotland. She announced her blog tour on face book and I started following the tour and becoming intrigued about her new book - Highland Dragon.

Last Saturday I stopped by the RWA meeting so I could get my autograph copy.

I enjoyed this book. I laughed out loud so many times, I’m sure people around me thought I was crazy. The passion in the book gave me goose bumps. I could feel their love oozing off the pages. This is one of those books I call DELICIOUS.

I felt every range of emotions as I read this book. I so do enjoy a book that takes you along for the ride with the characters. I found myself sneaking to the bathroom, so I could read another chapter. I haven't done that with a book in a long time.

It reminded me of why I so love a good romance – they feature passion, falling in love, and a good story that ends with happily ever after.

Sometimes I need to know something is going to end happily ever after. Life is hard some days and that's why I read, to remind me that there is some good in the world.

A desire that defies all limits…
and a love that was meant to be…

Scotland 1502. Akira Neish has been raised as a peasant, her belly often empty and her family subject to the cruel whims of her clan's laird. To the clan’s children, the horned shaped birthmark she bears means she is a witch. But she is neither peasant nor witch—and now the man who knows the truth has returned to claim her for his own.

Calin MacLeod has kept Akira's secrets and to avenge his father, the sensual young laird must marry her. He is more than a match for the fiery nature of the woman he adores. Yet the passion they share—and truths that can no longer remain hidden—could rip all of Scotland apart...

Thanks for stopping by Rhea.

My copy of Captured came in the mail yesterday. I was tempted to read it, but I'm trying to stick to the order I have with the high pile of books I need to read. Ms. Jackie then Ms. Bev.

I'll have to check out R. L. Davis.
