Thanks to Meghan Harrington of  St. Martin’s Press, I am giving away one print copy of The Bride Who Got Lucky by Janna MacGregor.

Description Bride Who Got Lucky by Janna MacGregor


He would do anything to protect her. Even marry her…

The son of a cold-hearted duke, Nicholas St. Mauer isn’t one to involve himself in society…or open his own heart to anyone. But driven by honor, the reclusive Earl of Somerton feels obliged to keep a watchful eye on Lady Emma Cavensham. She possesses a penchant for passions unbecoming a woman that finds Nick in constant peril of losing his well-structured solitude. She even dared to kiss Nick once—an utterly unladylike, and delightful, lapse…

Emma can’t deny the appeal of the earl’s attention, and occasional affection, but she has no need for a man. There are worse fates than spinsterhood, as Emma knows too well. She still mourns the loss of her dear friend Lena, and is determined to prove Lena’s husband responsible for her death before he lures another innocent woman into a brutal marriage. But as Emma pursues her prey, a compromising moment upends all her plans. Now, with gossip swirling and her reputation in tatters, Nick may be the only man brave enough to join in Emma’s cause. . .and fight for her heart.

“The second title in the Cavensham Heiresses series again proves that MacGregor has a real talent for developing every facet of a romance; it can be read independently from the first book, but readers of one will devour the other.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Absolutely brilliant! Sparkles just like champagne!” –Romance Junkies

Description Scandalous Flirt by Olivia Drake


Aurora Paxton was once the belle of the ball, the most sought-after debutante of the season―until a scandalous mistake ruined her. Shunned by her family, Rory was banished to the country to live in disgrace. Now she’s been summoned back to London by her stepmother, who is being blackmailed by the least likely person Rory can imagine: Lucas Vale, Marquess of Dashell.

Lucas is someone Rory’s known for years―a man as devastatingly handsome as he is coldly disapproving of her. What in the world could he want from her or her family? Rory intends to find out as soon as she comes face to face with her old foe. What she never expects, however, is that the icy aristocrat has a soft spot for her―and a secret plan to redeem her status. Could it be that Lucas has been in love with Rory all along. . .and has finally found a way to win her heart?

Neespaugot

Melba Blue Jay, sixteen, scrambling up a snow-filled mountain path, her knife at a child’s throat. Archie Chung at the helm of the South Pacific Belle, foremast snapped like a toothpick, barreling toward a coral reef. Spindly Lydia Freeman, skin the color of dark ale, feeding tea made of birch bark to an Irish murderess. Zeke Roxxmott teetering at three hundred feet on the five-inch ledge of his penthouse, bent on a flawless destruction.

Adventurers, inextricably linked by a bloodline… and an Indian’s coin.

Where history and imagination meet!

John Mugglebee’s Neespaugot is based on the real-life exploits of his own ancestors.  A sweeping historical saga of his Native American, African American, Scots-Irish, Chinese, Russian Jewish family, it spans three centuries with adventures that keep you turning page after page.  You’ll fall in love with these characters, who stay with you long after you’ve put the book down.

My Thoughts Neespaugot: Legend of the Indian’s Coin by John Mugglebee


Spanning 400 years this story of historical fiction follows the real life exploits of the author’s ancestors and the Indian coin his ancestors possessed. The first owner of the coin was Runinniduk, a Native American who received it from the Massachusetts Bay Colony for his assistance in translating the bible.  Years late his granddaughter, Melba Blue Jay take possesion of the coin after Runinniduk’s death.  She is arrested and sent into slavery in the West Indies. She survives and has children and escapes to New France (now Canada).  She eventually makes the journey back to Neespaugot with her daughter.

After Melba Blue Jay’s death, her daughter takes possession of the coin.  Eventually that coin makes it to many places and centuries and eventually end up in 2015.  It’s very beat up and impossible to read but still priceless to those in it’s possession.

This story is a family saga that follows one family through the generations.  At one point the story of the coin and the ancestors was lost but then regained.  The characters are well written and come to life as does the description of the land in the places the coin inhabits.  This is a beautiful, breath taking story.  I did not want it to end!  I also think it would make an excellent movie or even miniseries.  I highly recommend it.

5/5

I received the ebook for my honest review.

About John MugglebeeNeespaugot: Legend of the Indian's Coin by John Mugglebee


John Mugglebee is a racial and ethnic jigsaw puzzle. His heritage, in chronological order, includes Native American, African American, Scots-Irish, Chinese and Russian Jew. John has said there were two major factors that shaped him as a person and a writer. One was “Being colored but not knowing which color.”

The other was upheaval. Born in Massachusetts, at age eleven he was uprooted to Southern California in the midst of the ’60s race riots. Growing up, John was told family stories that had been passed down for generations.  Neespaugot is loosely based on those stories.

He currently lives in the South of France, where he heads a language laboratory for French Civil Aviation. John graduated from Dartmouth and earned a master’s in creative writing from Colorado State University. His previous novel, Renaissance in Provence, was published in 2004.
