The reason why I love Mondays -- Mailbox Monday hosted by Marcia at the Printed Page. Below are the following advance review copies that I received this week:
1) Still the One by Robin Wells. Publisher's Summary. After Katie Charmaine's husband is killed in Iraq, all she has left is a closet full of his clothes, a few pictures, and fond memories. She not only lost her love, but her last chance to have the children she's always wanted. Until Zack Ferguson shows up in town . . . with the daughter Katie gave up for adoption nearly seventeen years ago.
Zack Ferguson has never forgotten Katie, or the one magical night they spent together. Seeing her again brings up a tidal wave of emotions: regret over the way he left her, anger at the secret she kept, and desire he hasn't felt in years. But he's in town for Gracie. Their daughter is sixteen, angry at the world, and-worst of all-pregnant. She needs the love of her two parents now more than ever. Can these three forgive the hurts of the past and open their hearts to each other?
Thanks to Hachette Book Group!
2) Amanda Memories by Dr. Joel R. Gecht. Publisher's Summary. mbitious but naive, Brian Roberts is set on a career path that will lead to a psychology degree, financial stability, and emotional fulfillment. His marriage to hometown sweetheart Nancy seems to assure a fine future.
But when beautiful green-eyed Amanda Wagner, a deeply troubled young woman, becomes his patient, the future becomes blurry. Her dependency on Brian becomes an aphrodisiac for him. The need and the obsession are mutual.
Brian goes on to become a successful Hollywood TV talk show doc, but he flounders in the pretentious and posh world of Beverly Hills, celebrity, and money. And worst of all, Brian and Nancy are drifting apart.
Then, while making her final descent, Amanda is found dead and Brian emerges as the prime suspect. Nancy sets out to vindicate Brian. Her quest, however, will lead her to the darkest corners of Amanda’s tortured past and will not only determine Brian’s fate, but will ultimately unlock the secrets trapped within Amanda’s family lineage.
