Book Review...and a Giveaway!!!



I was lucky enough to win an ARC of When the Rogue Returns from Sabrina Jeffries herself! I couldn't wait to read it.  After reading the first book in The Duke's Men series, What the Duke Desires, I was excited to see that this next book was about Victor Cale.

In When the Rogue Returns, Victor Cale is headed to Scotland to investigate a woman, Sofie Franke.  He has his suspicions that this woman is actually Isabella, his wife who disappeared on him ten years before.  He has spent the last decade searching to bring her to justice after she stole the royal jewels and left him to behind to deal with the authorities.  Isabella Cale, now known as Sofie Franke, has built a new life for herself and her ten-year old daughter after her husband ran off with the royal jewels.

Are you intrigued yet?

Victor and Isa's first meeting was great! Both blame the other for the missing jewels, and both are greatly suspicious of the other's motives.  Despite their renewed feelings of passion and love for each other, they just cannot get over their extreme fear that the other is lying.  Victor, however, grows jealous of another man in Isa's life, and Isa fights her own feelings for Victor.  Once they both realize they were framed for a crime neither committed, they must work together to find the real thieves and make sure justice is served.

I love how Sabrina Jeffries is able to mix romance and mystery together to create an amazing chemistry between Victor and Isa.  As they struggle to come to terms with the truth, you sense how they are still haunted by their vulnerabilities.  I think that's what I liked most about the book - they both seemed so innocent and honest, yet also so tortured by the incidents of the past. It wasn't just two random people fighting feelings of lust for each other, rather it was two people joined by marriage yet torn apart by another person's lies.

When the Rogue Returns will be released on January 21.  I highly recommend it.  I was lucky enough to also receive an autographed copy of What the Duke Desires, signed by Sabrina Jeffries!  In anticipation of the upcoming release, I am giving that copy away here to one lucky winner.  Good luck!

Books are always welcome, but a gift card is better, so I can get the ones at the top of my Wish List. Best gift is a trip to someplace special we have always wanted to visit, like Scotland, Ireland, and England. That, of course, is less likely to happen than the books or gift certificate.

Books, of course! I love receiving them and they are my preferred gift to give someone!

Now if you have an autographed new copy of Sabrina Jeffries's book, why on the earth would you giveaway? Myself, not on this life. That would be one of my few treasures indispensable. My best to you.

The Tree of Life

My name is Sarah, and it's been 11 months since my last post. I've thought about it, but life is constantly getting in the way. I even made a goal this year to write more, but it really hasn't happened yet.  Until today.

I went on Facebook this morning to check if there were any updates about the accident I saw on the way to work. Instead, I saw an obituary for a woman I've never met. But I know who she is. She received a kidney transplant a few months before I received mine.

And according to her FB page, she had a difficult time leading up to transplant, a tough recovery, lots of additional illnesses and setbacks, and long hospital stays.

I, on the other hand, never had dialysis, was on the transplant list for an unbelievable 5 months (the wait list is normally 5 YEARS), had a 3-day hospital stay, and other than not tolerating pain medication (so I could only take Tylenol which did nothing for the pain), I've been on my merry, healthy way for over 3 years.

The Cindy Tote - A Review

I have been wanting a new work bag for, well, ever. In fact, I told Keith recently that I really wanted the Thirty-One Cindy tote, but couldn't justify the price at this time. He mentioned that since I had been complaining about this for well over two years, I could use part of our tax refund to get a bag for myself. I was super excited, but wanted to make sure it was going to be money well spent.

I emailed my wonderful friend, MB, who confirmed that yes, the Cindy tote was a great bag, and..... there was a great deal going on this month as well!

*Please excuse the cell phone pictures, our computer is still broken and I (meaning Keith and the mess that his desk) still cannot find the camera cord.

The front.  Isn't it pretty? 
And no, I swear I did not hug the bag  out of happiness when  I first took it out of the box.



The inside has one zippered pocket,  as well as three deep open pockets.   There is nothing I like more than a bag with lots of pockets.

Here it is filled with my …
