First off – I changed my wallpaper. I tried to find the meme that went around so I could find instruction on how I did it before, but I couldn't so I’ll just have to post the picture. A mighty fine backdrop me thinks!
(yep - no question - I'm obsessed! )
Making out my top 100 list has caused me a lot of nostalgia for some of my older treasured books. I’ve been reading them for a while now – since I started the ‘Guess that Book’ contest – which will resume shortly by the way. Now, although I have a TBR pile that is starting to really freak me out, I’ve been called by The 100 to read them all again. I tried ignoring their call, but they woke up when I started listing them and the darn things are getting louder in their screams. So what can a reader do except heed them?

This one is book No. 28 and the loudest of the bunch. I think when I read The Serpent Prince, that’s when this one really started to roar at me.
Here’s a brief blurb from Barns & Noble:
Cutting a dazzling swath through Victorian society, wealthy and seductive Peregrine weaves a web of desire around Lady St. James, who's pledged to wed Peregrine's enemy. Only the burning power of love can pierce Peregrine's chilling silence about his secret past and hidden purpose, and Sara plunges into a whirlpool of uncertainty with a man who has everything a
woman could want--and fear.
In this historical, Mikahl Khanauri is a mysterious visitor to
Mary Jo Putney wrote some of the best books back in the 80’s and this is certainly one of them. It’s a story of revenge and the power of love.
I adore Mikahl in this book. Like Simon from The Serpent Prince, he’s not always easy to like and he does some very questionable things. But he’s a fascinating and very charismatic character.
Sara is a very strong heroine and works wonderfully well as his conscious. She is a great match for Micahl.
I’m not sure how easy it is to find. I’ve had my copy for years. But it is well worth the effort to find.
This one is definitely a 5 out of 5!
I’m not sure if I mentioned it or not, but before heading to visit Nance, I ordered quite a few books and while we were there, I bought quite a few more. They’ve gotten a bit mixed in the TBR pile that terrifies me so hopefully I remember them all. This was my haul
I had to get this one - she lives in the same city as me.
(I now have the entire series of these ones too without reading a one of them yet - and they are trade sized!)
And I think I got more - but they are all jumbled up now.
