It’s Monday again … they just keep coming around, don’t they? Anyway, time for a reading suggestion to get you through the week. I always like to suggest a book that I’m currently reading (even if I haven’t yet finished it).
Currently, I’m reading an awesome novel by Leigh Anderson called Dangerous Passions. The book cover alone sucked me in, and once I read the back, I couldn’t wait to dive in.
Back cover (from Amazon):
Isoline Beresford has beautiful yet haunting dreams. In them, a man she doesn’t know is calling to her. She’s inexplicably, inexorably drawn to him, until he’s more real to her than her own fiancé.
When she calls off her engagement, her enraged father sends her to live with her ninety-year-old grand-aunt, the Dowager Countess Bellamira Granville. If she won’t do her duty at home, he reasons, perhaps she can at least convince Lady Granville to leave her fortune to Isoline.
But life at Thornrush Manor is not what Isoline expected. Her aunt is as spry and elegant as a woman half her age. Her nearest neighbor, a distant cousin, begins courting her. And a dark and handsome artist proves a pleasant companion.
All the while, her dreams grow more intense. More urgent. More passionate.
In order to save everyone at Thornrush Manor, Isoline will have to confront the darkest parts of herself-and discover the secret of the man who hides in her dreams.
Fans of Daphne Du Maurier, Sherrilyn Kenyon, and Eve Silver are sure to love this Gothic romance from Leigh Anderson.
Yes, yes, and yes. I am loving it! It is escapism extraordinaire, and anyone that knows me knows that’s what I want in a book. I will most likely talk about this book again once I’ve finished it. In the meantime, join me in the escape to the Gothic realm. We can compare notes after…
Some other books you might want to consider for this week’s reading:
