The Snow-Kissed Bride.

The Snow-Kissed Bride by Linda GoodnightJust finished Linda Goodnight's The Snow-Kissed Bride. I really liked how John thinks. Especially when Melody was brushing dirt from her bottom. ☺

I definitely love how John and Melody gradually fall in love with each other. (Sigh.) Totally enjoyed this book. It's one of those small doses of extreme emotional type of read for me. ♥

I'm so glad Harlequin offered one of her books for free for their 60th anniversary. If not, I don't know how long would it take for me to discover her, if I ever was meant to.

It's really hard to find authors that write just the right things that you like.

His Irish Bride.

His Irish Bride... from Abby Green :)

Yup, this is the other book direct from Abby Green. Of course it's autographed:


And again of course, I read her story first. And just finished it! Yeah! And now I have no book by her in my TBR! OMG!

Her story is titled The Brazilian Billionaire's Bride.

Favourite part? *Spoiler* When Caleb got back Maggie's old Mini. And those tin cans tied to the bumper on strings. And that huge sign. Awwww. *End Spoiler*

My usual Rant: I love the story, every page is so emotionally charged, the ending never fails to make me cry, and I'm totally satisfied when I reached the end. I don't need to read more of the story. It's VERY satisfying. I just need more, like in the form of another story. Oh I love it when Caleb said "I love you" (when don't I?) *re-reads that part*. Wow. I love reading romance so much.

You know, I'm getting really interested in Dublin. Where's that place again?

This Monday.

  • I actually forgot that I have read an unfinished book which I started on yesterday. Totally forgot I have a half-read book. Totally.
  • Abby Green. This coming weekend is reserved for reading her book.
  • Am pissed at who a certain author thanked when she won an award.
  • Smart Bitches giving away romancy bags! Highlight of Monday. Really. Though many other nice authors give stuff away too.

Just read Ruthless Bedded, Forcibly Wedded.

Ruthlessly Bedded, Forcibly Wedded - AUTOGRAPHED!

Gawd I love Abby Green's ending speeches. Or grovelling speeches, making-up speeches whatever you call them. They're so looong, never draggy, and just so damn satisfying. The stories just ties up very, very well at the end. For me. It didn't make me frustrated that I needed more from the characters, the stories.

Eh, I do need more, another book like this please. ☺

Oh see above photo? Envy me.

* Some sort of spoilers *

You know when it comes to reading romance, I never really liked it when the heroes think to love is to let go. I'm like, oh com'on go chase after the girl already, stop trying to be a saint or what, the girl loves it if you chase her. But in Abby Green's books, like this Ruthless Bedded, Forcibly Wedded, which I just finished, it just feels so right to let the heroine go and have her come back to him. The little short scene when Cara finds Vincenzo in his room? Wow. Bloodshot eyes? I wish all heroes have that.

* End some sort of spoilers *

Gawd I love everything about this book, every moment is so emotional. Right from page one. That's why when I start I couldn't put it down, and even after I finish, it will be stuck in my mind.

Love it.


I have another autographed book by Abby Green, and I'll only reveal it the next time I read it heheh.

If you like a book...

... email that author and let him/her know. ☺

For me, I do not have this habit at all. When I love a book to hell, maybe I blog about it or rant it to my friends.

But I'm working on it.

Love at first sight.

Sigh.Have I mentioned before that Abby Green's stories are so my type of books? Really can't say how much I love them.

In Chosen As The Frenchman's Bride, it's like I can feel what Xavier and Jane are feeling. The writing really make me seem to be able to feel those moments, their emotions. They may hide their feelings from each other, but definitely not from me. I feel that I know too much sometimes :p Really, it was an emotional ride for me, from the moment they bump into each other. And the ending is just wow (too). They didn't just made up just by saying "I love you." That conversation at the end (and prior to the end), just makes my tear flow non-stop... ho boy.

Love it!
