Review: The Bronze Horseman

The book: The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons Published September 2009 by William Morrow (first published July 17th 2000) The blurb: The golden skies, the translucent twilight, the white nights, all hold the promise of youth, of love, of eternal renewal. The war has not yet touched this city of fallen grandeur, or the lives of two sisters, Tatiana and Dasha Metanova, who share a single room in a cramped apartment with their brother and parents. Their world is turned upside down when Hitler’s armies attack Russia and begin their unstoppable blitz to Leningrad. Yet there is light in the darkness. Tatiana meets Alexander, a brave young officer in the Red Army. Strong and self-confident, yet guarding a mysterious and troubled past, he is drawn to Tatiana—and she to him. Starvation, desperation, and fear soon grip their city during the terrible winter of the merciless German siege. Tatiana and Alexander’s impossible...

"Usually, when Cinderella ditches the prince, she leaves behind a shoe." - Travis Bowers Good Girls Don't Date Rock Stars Rock Canyon Romance #2 Author: Codi Gary Publisher: Avon Impulse Published: April 22, 2014 Source: publisher for review (via Edelweiss) Purchase Links: Amazon - Barnes & Noble Gemma Carlson didn't plan on waking up married. She also didn't count on running into her old flame—and her son's father-turned-country rock star—Travis Bowers, followed by a night of drunken dares. Apparently one of those involved a ring on her finger and a vow … neither of which she intends to keep. Now with a hangover from hell, this good-girl-gone-bad knows there's just one thing to do: run. Travis has been all over the world, but Gemma has never been far from his thoughts. So when they had the chance to catch up over a few drinks, he didn't hesitate. Of course, he...

Staying Fresh As A Reader

I’m at Delilah Devlin’s online home today, talking about how to stay fresh as a reader. http://www.delilahdevlin.com/blog/2014/04/21/cynthia-sax-staying-fresh-as-a-reader/ Here’s a snippet… Camille, the heroine of Breaking All The Rules, prides herself on not doing anything anyone expects her to do. She’s a green-haired, pierced, tattooed rebel, living by her own rules. I love her spontaneity. This do anything, try anything attitude isn’t merely fun. It’s healthy also. Scientific studies show that new experiences keep brains fresh, active, young. Gaming companies market programs designed to give us these new experiences. I prefer to get my new experiences between the virtual pages of a great story. *** Nathan Lawford, Blaine Technologies’ chief financial officer, is known as the Iceman. He conducts his personal and business affairs without emotion, never allowing himself to become involved with anyone. When Nate sees something or someone he wants, he negotiates, paying a simple, set monetary price. Now...
