Book Of The Month

My Review

To be the book of the month, something in the novel must have a special spark.  I need to be instantly immersed in that world even after a month of reading a plethora of other books.  A Lady’s Heart Deceived by Sasha Cottman achieved this goal.  I was fully invested in the characters and the plot at all times.  The storyline stood out to me; I loved Piers’s character due to his inner battle between his hope of a future with Maggie and the threat of this past.  Maggie was magnificent, showcasing a gambit of emotions from devotion, to shock, to acceptance and finally achieving a well-deserved love.  The entire novel is shown brightly.  When I thought of the book of the month, A Lady’s Heart Deceived instantly jumped out!  Do not miss this book.  Sasha Cottman again delivers a magnetic story full of angst, charm, and romance.

A Look Ahead

So far, I have ten advance copies from various publishers and authors.  I also have three previously published books planned.  The titles are listed by release date, and the blog feature date is listed at the end.
