Barely a Lady by Eileen Dreyer

Hi everyone! Goodreads is hosting fantastic book giveaways through 2010. I recently won a copy of "Barely a Lady" by Eileen Dreyer from the Goodreads giveaway. I'm so excited to read it. I haven't read anything from Eileen Dreyer and so this is completely new territory for me. Anyway, become a member of Goodreads and enter awesome book giveaways.

On a separate note, I haven't been doing much blogging because I haven't read any new books. Instead I had this itch to return to my book shelf and pick out a book I know and love and truly enjoy reading. So what did I pick you ask?...Well, my pick was the Mercy Thompson series. It's urban fantasy written by Patricia Briggs; she's one of my favorite authors which I've had the honor to meet.

I've recently finished Moon Called, Blood Promise and now I'm reading Iron Kissed, the third book in the series. I decided to re-read these because 1) Mercy Thompson is so kiss ass I love her personality, a true hero 2) I love the budding romance between Mercy and Adam Hauptman, the Alpha Werewolf from the Columbia Basin Wolf Pack and 3) Ever book is a page turner, very satisfying.

I knew I couldn't go wrong with this series. Besides what's the point of buying a book if you don't plan to read it again?

"THERE IS only one way to read a good book -- re-read it. There are books and there are more books. But generally we divide them into two broad categories: those we read and discard, and those we read and re-read."


Barely a Lady (Paperback) is to be release June 29, 2010 and here is a quick bit.

Barely a Lady (The Drake's Rakes series)
Olivia Grace has secrets that could destroy her. One of the greatest of these is the Earl of Gracechurch, who married and divorced her five years earlier. Abandoned and disgraced, Grace has survived those years at the edge of respectability. Then she stumbles over Jack on the battlefield of Waterloo, and he becomes an even more dangerous secret. For not only is he unconscious, he is clad in an enemy uniform.

But worse, when Jack finally wakes in Olivia's care, he can't remember how he came to be on a battlefield in Belgium. In fact, he can remember nothing of the last five years. He thinks he and Olivia are still blissfully together. To keep him from being hanged for a traitor, Olivia must pretend she and Jack are still married.

To unearth the real traitors, Olivia and Jack must unravel the truth hidden within his faulty memory. To save themselves and the friends who have given them sanctuary, they must stand against their enemies, even as they both keep their secrets.

In the end, can they risk everything to help Jack recover his lost memories, even though the truth may destroy them both?
