Mona’s meticulously planned allotment of relaxation is thrown into chaos by the unscheduled appearance of her older brother’s band of friends, including the one person she'd hoped to never face again.

Review: Changing Nature (The Immortal Descendants #3) by April White

Image
Available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

Immortal Descendants are disappearing one by one, and seventeen-year-old Clocker Saira Elian is next on the list…

Saira and Archer’s London summer is carefree and romantic, until a brazen attempt to capture Saira looks suspiciously like the handiwork of the Descendants of War. When the kidnappings of other Descendants come to light and Mr. Shaw is taken for questioning under threat to his family, Saira realizes that for herself and young Shifter Connor, Time is the only refuge.

But one danger is merely exchanged for another. Believing that their time-warping nemesis Bishop Wilder may have fled Elizabethan England for medieval France, Saira and her friends emerge onto the gloomy streets of Paris in 1429 to find it besieged by marauding wolves. When they encounter an illiterate peasant girl, whose deeds as Joan of Arc are extolled in an obscure sixteenth century book, but are unknown in their modern history, they realize the wolves m…

The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes

Image
Available on Amazon.com * Amazon.de * Goodreads
Synopsis:

By an acclaimed writer at the height of his powers, The Sense of an Ending extends a streak of extraordinary books that began with the best-selling Arthur & George and continued with Nothing to Be Frightened Of and, most recently, Pulse.

This intense novel follows a middle-aged man as he contends with a past he has never much thought about - until his closest childhood friends return with a vengeance, one of them from the grave, another maddeningly present. Tony Webster thought he'd left all this behind as he built a life for himself, and by now his marriage and family and career have fallen into an amicable divorce and retirement. But he is then presented with a mysterious legacy that obliges him to reconsider a variety of things he thought he'd understood all along, and to revise his estimation of his own nature and place in the world.

A novel so compelling that it begs to be read in a single sitting, with stunning ps…

Synopsis:

Ginger Holtzman has fought for everything she’s ever had—the success of her tattoo shop, respect in the industry, her upcoming art show. Tough and independent, she has taking-no-crap down to an art form. Good thing too, since keeping her shop afloat, taking care of her friends, and scrambling to finish her paintings doesn’t leave time for anything else.

When they meet, Christopher is smitten, but Ginger … isn’t quite so sure. Christopher’s gorgeous, and kind, an…

Game On (Game On #1) by Olley White

Image
Available on Amazon.comAmazon.deGoodreads
Synopsis:

Dear Author,
We met in the strangest way.

I was convinced he was a girl because of his choice of character, and he thought the same thing about me. You can imagine how surprised we were when we first met in person. How confused I was about my feeling for him. I was already in love with the person behind the character, but I had never been attracted to a man before.

Can you tell the story of how we became that happy couple in the picture?

Photo Description:
Two men, in their early twenties, lean towards each other for a kiss. Both smiling, they have their eyes shut. One boy has tousled hair, an earring and an upper ear piercing. He’s wearing a bright turquoise T-shirt while the other has neater hair and is wearing a checked shirt. Their hands are held, and a gaming controller nestles between them. A computer screen with a game playing on it is visible in the background.

This story was written as a part of the M/M Romance Group's"…
