My Bookshelf: The Mark of the King by Jocelyn Green

Life in this new world requires more strength than she ever imagined.
After the death of her client, midwife Julianne Chevalier is imprisoned and branded, marking her as a criminal beyond redemption. Hoping to reunite with her brother, a soldier, she trades her life sentence for exile to the fledgling French colony of Louisiana. The price of her transport, however, is a forced marriage to a fellow convict.
New Orleans is nothing like Julianne expects. The settlement is steeped in mud and mosquitoes, and there is no news of her brother Benjamin. When tragedy strikes, she turns to military officer Marc-Paul Girard for help, but does he know more about her brother than he will admit?
With her dreams shattered, Julianne must find her way in this dangerous land, where only grace—and love—can overcome the stigma of the king’s mark upon her shoulder.

Top Ten Tuesday: Pretty Covers!!!

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about the visuals, so I’m filling my post with some of my favorite new covers of ten books that release this year! I feel like covers are just getting better and better as the years go on, and this year is one of the best yet! There are so many gorgeous covers out there so this was hard to slim down, but I think I’ve managed to get the best ones. So far. I’m sure as soon as I turn around I’ll find another new one I like better. But for now, here are these fantastic ones!

Top Ten Tuesday: Oh How I’ve Missed These Books!

It’s Tuesday again! This is one of my favorite days, partly because Top Ten Tuesday posts are some of my favorite ones to write! And today is a special Tuesday because it’s a FREEBIE!!! Sometimes it takes me a while to come up with a topic, because I’ve already done many of the ones you would most often think of, and I like to come up with a topic that is more out of the box. This week, I think I’ve nailed it! My top ten list today consists of ten books I first read before I even started blogging, but would love to read again because I absolutely loved them! Hopefully, this list will inspire me to do some re-reading, and if I do, I’ll definitely review these gems!

My Bookshelf: A Moonbow Night + A Linkup

In an uncertain time, she faces a choice that will change her life forever.
After fleeing Virginia, Temperance Tucker and her family established an inn along the Shawnee River. It’s a welcome way station for settlers and frontiersmen traveling through the wild Cumberland region of Kentucke—men like Sion Morgan, a Virginia surveyor who arrives at the inn with his crew, looking for an experienced guide.
Though he balks when Tempe is appointed to lead his team through the wilderness, it isn’t long before Sion must admit that her abilities may outmatch his own. But can the tenuous tie they are forming survive the dangers waiting just around the bend?

Top Ten Tuesday: Sadly Underrated

Today’s Top Ten Tuesday is all about the books that I have read in the past year that are totally underrated on Goodreads. This was one of my favorite topics from last year, but unfortunately this year it was really hard to pick just ten books for this list, and for a very sad reason. Almost all of the books I’ve read fall into the “underrated” category! Isn’t that terrible?! However, I can promise that, despite their lack of reviews, these are ten fantastic novels, and you can bet my reviews of them are on Goodreads!
