Cover Reveal – The Internship of Pipa Darling

Hello, wonderlandians! Today we have a cover reveal. Thank you to Xpresso Tours.

The Internship of Pippa Darling
Stephanie Keyes
Publication date: March 16th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Grad student, Pippa Darling, is thrilled when she’s chosen for a summer writing internship at Tèarmunn Castle in Ireland, but devastated when she learns it’s with overnight sensation, Finn Burke. The previous authors who’ve worked with him have gone on to receive tremendous book deals. But how can she get excited about working beside an author whose book she hates, especially when no one can compare to her favorite writer, the elusive James Black?

Finn Burke believes in giving back, which is why he’s chosen one student from his alma mater as an intern every year since his debut novel hit the NYT bestseller list. When Pippa arrives at his castle-in-progress off the coast of County Donegal, Ireland, he kisses her, then fires her. Yet, with no one else to fill in on short notice and a looming deadline, Finn has to keep Pippa on—even if it means keeping secrets.

When the critique sessions intensify, tension builds between the pair. They’re driven into one another’s arms. Yet, when Pippa discovers what Finn’s been hiding, will it bring them closer or break them apart?

Cover Reveal – The Billionaire’s Betrayal

Hello, wonderlandians! How is your Wednesday going? Today, I have a cover reveal for you. Thank you Xpresso Tours for letting me be apart of this.

This book looks so interesting. I am really enjoying the cover is this book. It think the fact that it has a blue tone overlay to it but still looks faded at least to me is not something I have seen in a long while. It is different and it really makes it stand out.



The Billionaire’s Betrayal
Mika Lane
(Billionaire, #2)
Publication date: January 16th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

I own the hottest boutique hotel in Manhattan. Only the rich and famous stay here. They’re the only ones who can afford it. And they’re the only ones we allow.

I’m busy, I’m successful, I’m rich, and I can seduce any woman I want. So when I agreed to another god-awful “bachelor auction” fundraiser for some freaking charity, I prepared myself for a date with some crazy chick who blathered on about her cat, and how many children she’d like to have one day.

Thanks, but no thanks.

So when my “date,” the winner of the latest auction of my bad boy self, emailed me to set up a rendezvous, I planned on having one drink and bailing. My assistant knew exactly when to call me so I could fake an emergency.

Only this date was different. Sure, she was beautiful—Manhattan is full of stunning women, mostly looking for rich husbands. But this one was the brilliant CEO of a tech firm. And she could have given two craps about me. Before I knew it, her half-empty martini sat on the bar wearing the slightest smudge of her red lipstick.

Was she beating me at my own game? I couldn’t let that happen. I wouldn’t.

What I’m Reading Wednesday

Hello, my wonderlandians. I hope you are having a great Wednesday. I am off today so I did not wake up until 1 pm. I have been very tired lately. So the sleep in was nice. In a couple of hours, I’m getting ready to go to my mom’s house to go pick up my box of ornaments so my boyfriend and I can put up our Christmas tree. I know it’s the 20th of December and still no Christmas tree…

Today though we are here for another What I’m Reading Wednesday.

I am currently listening to a book called The Ninth Key. It is the second book in the Mediator series by Meg Cabot.

199786

Synopsis

Ghosts ruin everything. Especially your love life.

Everything is going great for Suze. Her new life in California is a whirlwind of parties and excellent hair days. Tad Beaumont, the hottest boy in town, has even asked Suze out on her very first date. Suze is so excited that she’s willing to ignore her misgivings about Tad… particularly the fact that he’s not Jesse, whose ghostly status – not to mention apparent disinterest in her – make him unattainable.

What Suze can’t ignore, however, is the ghost of a murdered woman whose death seems directly connected to dark secrets hidden in none other than Tad Beaumont’s past.

(After reading these books. I want to go watch the show Ghost Whisperer.) 

This book is actually going to be a reread for me I read it back when I was in high school and I recently just finished the 8th book in the series so what I wanted to do was go back and reread the entirety of the series. Unfortunately, I do not have books 1 and 2 I do have 3 through 7. So I thought I would get the audiobooks this time around and listen to them.

I thought this would be a nice way to kind of end the year. I love this book series I love the world but it takes me in to. Overall, I love the main characters, Susanna Simon. I honestly feel like when I was back in high school she felt like that friend that didn’t really give a crap. It was nice because my overall High School experience wasn’t the best. So I was able to escape into this world where I felt like I had a friend that took up for you and really didn’t take crap from anybody. And then, of course, you know you have the hot love interest. There were also times when I would put myself in Suze’s Shoes just because I wanted to cry and go see you like I was somebody else for a while. This is on a day where I was having a particularly bad day with my mental health and I just needed to escape. So this is my reading Wednesday.

As always thank you guys so much for coming here and joining me and our little part of Wonderland. On your way out do not forget to feed the unicorns. We are 5 days away from Christmas so they are definitely in the mood for granting all over the wishes.

Until next time

Much love

Cover Reveal – Cross Storke

Hello, wonderlandians! How is your week going? We have another cover reveal today. Thanks, Xpresso Tours for letting me be apart of this.



Cross Stroke
Elizabeth Hartey
Publication date: January 16th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Tracey…

One night left my heart shattered and my reputation ruined, and now my only hope is to transfer to another university far from home. Although I’m a champion figure skater and am used to succeeding, I can’t dump the burden of distrust and intimacy I’m carrying.

But when I literally crash into the cocky captain of the hockey team, sparks fly, and the attraction is as undeniable as it is unwanted.

No way is this arrogant hottie the one to help me move past my fears. Or is he…?

Dak…

Overwhelmed with guilt and remorse, I can’t forget the tragic accident that killed my first love. To avoid ever feeling that kind of agonizing loss again, I vow to stick with one-night stands with every puck bunny who glides my way and focus on keeping my position on the hockey team.

But after I meet a feisty figure skater and am then thrown together with her as a lab partner, I find I want to melt the icy walls we’ve built around our hearts.

If we don’t strangle each other first.

Author Bio:

As a lover of the northeast US, my husband and I moved to the Poconos several years ago to open a Chiropractic Clinic. Four children and a menagerie of animals later, I have finally found time to fulfill my lifelong dream of writing novels. A dreamer at heart, romance is—of course—the genre I spend most of my time writing and reading into the wee hours of the morning. However, if it’s a good book, any genre can keep me immersed in the story for hours.

When I’m not juggling work responsibilities and writing, I enjoy baking, knitting, traveling, hiking the beautiful hills and woods around my home and spending time with my family.
