My TBR List Meme (June)

Thanks to Michelle @ Because Reading for hosting. Rules are that on the first Saturday of the month participants pick three books and hold a vote. The winner is announced on the second Saturday and the review posted on the last Saturday of the month!

For this month I have gone right back to when I first got my kindle and am picking out three books that I simply never got around to reading! (OOOPS!) Interestingly this did lead to me questioning whether I'd read some books or not (turns out some of them I genuinely don't remember but have read...weird!)

Genuinely a bit scared for this cause I have absolutely no recollection of what attracted me to these books in the first place!

"No secret stays hidden forever."

A phone call from an old friend sets Dr. Giovanni Vecchio back on the path of a mystery he'd abandoned years before. He never expected a young librarian could hold the key to the search, nor could he have expected the danger she would attract. Now he and Beatrice De Novo will follow a twisted maze that leads from the archives of a university library, through the fires of Renaissance Florence, and toward a confrontation they never could have predicted.

A Hidden Fire is a paranormal mystery/romance for adult readers. It is the first book in the Elemental Mysteries Series.

The Pearl is the first book released under the saga Elearah Chronicles. It starts with Elearah, Mika and Balian arriving to Bian-Jing in the North of Huo, the fire kingdom.

They want to take Elearah to the Spirit Mountains. But things are never as easy as they seem; they embark in an adventure with kings, dragons, vampires, and gods in training. 

The full book is 62K words, and no cliff-hangers at the end. 

It is a fantasy book for adults; it contains some foul language and romance (though there is no explicit sex). It does not have much blood.

Left with no other options, the destitute daughter of a murdered king must flee to Alaska. Doing all she can to keep her younger sisters safe, Aazuria tries to assimilate and work among the Americans. She tries to hold her head up high even in the lowest of places, until she meets a somber man in a dark corner with eyes that remind her of home. 

Trevain Murphy is a successful crab fisherman who has spent his life building an empire on the sea. When a graceful dancer captures his attention, he becomes fascinated with her old-fashioned speech and unique mannerisms. Learning that her father has recently died, he cannot resist extending his kindness in offering to guide and protect her. 

As it becomes clear that the dark-haired woman is much more than she seems, Trevain is unprepared to uncover the staggering secrets behind her innocent facade. Neither the captain nor the princess can imagine that their lives will become forcibly entwined as a common enemy threatens both of their worlds...
