The Tattered Gloves by J.L Berg


Head down.
Don’t look up.
Never make eye contact.

Those were the words I lived by growing up, the words that protected me in an unsafe home. But words are only letters and eventually even they couldn’t keep his hands off me.

Hoping to leave behind the shattered life of my past, I find myself in a boring, small town, with an aunt I’ve never met and at a school I loathe.

But soon I learn, not everything in this world is as black and white as I’ve determined. Sometimes those we are so quick to judge often need a second, third or even fourth time to make a first impression.

And often, there are friendships and even love waiting just around the corner, if we are brave enough to take the first step.

Am I brave?

Or will I hide behind these tattered gloves of mine forever?

Riveted by Jay Crownover


From the New York Times bestselling author of the Marked Men books comes the next installment in the Saints of Denver series.

Everyone else in Dixie Carmichael’s life has made falling in love look easy, and now she is ready for her own chance at some of that happily ever after. Which means she’s done pining for the moody, silent former soldier who works with her at the bar that’s become her home away from home. Nope. No more chasing the hot as heck thundercloud of a man and no more waiting for Mr. Right to find her; she’s going hunting for him…even if she knows her heart is stuck on its stupid infatuation with Dash Churchill.

Denver has always been just a pit stop for Church on his way back to rural Mississippi. It was supposed to be simple, uneventful, but nothing could have prepared him for the bubbly, bouncy redhead with doe eyes and endless curves. Now he knows it’s time to get out of Denver, fast. For a man used to living in the shadows, the idea of spending his days in the sun is nothing short of terrifying.

When Dixie and Church find themselves caught up in a homecoming overshadowed with lies and danger, Dixie realizes that while falling in love is easy, loving takes a whole lot more work…especially when Mr. Right thinks he’s all wrong for you.

Nos infinis Chaos d’Alfreda Enwy


« Il sourit, son regard se posa sur mes lèvres. Il les dévorait des yeux.
Oh, non… seigneur, non ! Pas ça. Les baisers, jamais. Surtout pas après un tel rêve, surtout pas après avoir revu ça ce soir…
— Ne m’embrasse pas, murmurai-je. Ne cherche pas à m’embrasser, Nate. Jamais. »

Dylan a vécu un grave traumatisme dans son adolescence, depuis lors, elle fait ce qu’elle peut pour se reconstruire. En débarquant à San Francisco, elle compte bien reprendre sa vie en main : poursuivre son entraînement au sport de combat, obtenir une licence de management, et, surtout, garder ses distances avec la gent masculine – ses lèvres n’embrasseront plus jamais celles de personne. Plus jamais. À moins que la rencontre de Nate, séduisant boxeur au passé sombre, et de son fils de 4 ans, aussi charmant que son père, ne vienne perturber cette dernière règle.

Alors que leurs chemins ne cessent de se croiser, Dylan sent son cœur et son corps s’éveiller, et ses troubles passés la hanter de nouveau…

Les Els de H. Roy


« Je cours. Plus vite que jamais. Mes pulsations cardiaques sont des percussions frénétiques qui rythment ma cavalcade. L’air me brûle les narines, m’enflamme la gorge. J’ai froid, j’ai peur, j’ignore où je vais. Fuir, c’est tout ce qui m’importe. »

Connor a 18 ans, elle vit avec son père à Eden Lake, une petite ville des Adirondacks et, en dehors du fait que son meilleur ami a subitement pris ses distances, elle mène une existence plutôt tranquille.
Le jour où sa tante débarque, les choses se compliquent. Car les cauchemars qui assaillent Connor depuis quelque temps pourraient bien devenir réalité…

UK Paperback
Truthwitch by Susan Dennard


In a continent on the edge of war, two witches hold its fate in their hands.

Young witches Safiya and Iseult have a habit of finding trouble. After clashing with a powerful Guildmaster and his ruthless Bloodwitch bodyguard, the friends are forced to flee their home.

Safi must avoid capture at all costs as she’s a rare Truthwitch, able to discern truth from lies. Many would kill for her magic, so Safi must keep it hidden – lest she be used in the struggle between empires. And Iseult’s true powers are hidden even from herself.

In a chance encounter at Court, Safi meets Prince Merik and makes him a reluctant ally. However, his help may not slow down the Bloodwitch now hot on the girls’ heels. All Safi and Iseult want is their freedom, but danger lies ahead. With war coming, treaties breaking and a magical contagion sweeping the land, the friends will have to fight emperors and mercenaries alike. For some will stop at nothing to get their hands on a Truthwitch.

    Est ce que vous parle francais? 🙂 I can’t wait to read Truthwitch either. I ordered them. Have fun reading your book and have a great weekend!

  2. Forgive my French, because it’s really bad :0 (I understand everything, but I just can’t write). So I’ll just comment in English 😉

    Four is a really cute addition to the trilogy! I enjoyed it so much, although a lot of the content we already know 🙂

    I’ve heard a lot about Truthwitch, so I think I should really pick it up sometime 🙂

  4. I see you got the UK paperback of Truthwitch! I’m thinking I need to order one… especially since it’s so cheap on TBD right now. I have yet to read a Jay Crownover book! I met her a few years ago, she’s so great. I hope you enjoy all of your new books!

    Have a lovely weekend, Carine. =)
