Age of Druids (The Druid’s Brooch Series #9)
By Christy Nicholas
5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading the book Age of Druids (The Druid’s Brooch Series #9) by Christy Nicholas. It is a story that includes action, danger, romance, and magic. It is a book that pulled me in from the very beginning. I enjoyed reading about the character of Clíodhna. She is a woman who has a love for her children and is discovering that she has talents and powers. What will happen when what she believes clashes with the new church? What does the future hold for Clíodhna? Read this book to find out. This is a story that had me turning pages to find out what was going to happen next. I grew to care about what happens to Clíodhna with each chapter that I read. The book is written in such a way that I deeply felt her emotions. She also shows herself to be intelligent, strong and determined when she needs to be. Other additional characters are introduced and while some work against Clíodhna, some help and assist her. The author writes in such detail that I felt like I was right there with the characters. Don’t miss out on a book that is exciting and entertaining. I wasn’t able to put it down until I read the last page. It is a story I would highly recommend reading.

Love Surreptitiously
By Tarrah Anders
5 out of 5 stars

I loved reading the book Love Surreptitiously by Tarrah Anders. It is a romantic comedy that I couldn’t put down once I started it. I loved the characters of Sidney Matthews and Quinlan Montgomery. Sidney is a woman who is intelligent, strong, and independent. I like Sidney because she says what she is thinking even if it is a little too honest. There are times in this story that I was smiling or laughing out loud at what she says. Quinlan is a man who is handsome, charming, and doesn’t expect the attraction that he feels for Sidney. He knows what he wants and that is a relationship with her. What does the future hold for Sidney and Quinlan? Will secrets that are being kept end any chance that their relationship will work? Read this book to find out. This story has moments of comedy as well as emotional moments. I grew to care about Sidney and Quinlan with each chapter that I read. There are other characters introduced that I enjoyed reading about the part that they play in the story. The author does an amazing job of making the characters come to life. Don’t miss out on a romance story that you will not want to put down until the final page. I highly recommend reading this book
