Title: Drowning Instinct

Author: Ilsa J. Bick

Available at: Amazon Barnes and Noble

From Goodreads:

Jenna Lord’s first sixteen years were not exactly a fairytale. Her father is a controlling psycho and her mother is a drunk. She used to count on her older brother—until he shipped off to Afghanistan. And then, of course, there was the time she almost died in a fire.

There are stories where the monster gets the girl, and we all shed tears for his innocent victim. (This is not one of those stories either.)

Mitch Anderson is many things: A dedicated teacher and coach. A caring husband. A man with a certain… magnetism.

And there are stories where it’s hard to be sure who’s a prince and who’s a monster, who is a victim and who should live happily ever after. (These are the most interesting stories of all.)

Drowning Instinct is a novel of pain, deception, desperation, and love against the odds—and the rules.

I just started this book so I haven’t formed any opinions about it yet. I heard about it from Blook Girl’s blog though and she really enjoyed it. Since she has such good taste I imagine I’ll enjoy it too. The subject matter isn’t light and happy but I have a happier book line up after this. In the meantime, I’ll have my tissues on standby.

Title: The Long Way Home

Author: Sabrina Chase

Genre: Science Fiction

Available at: Amazon 

Webspace pilot Moire Cameron is one of the best–but even she can’t fly her way out of a catastrophic drive failure that triggers a time-dilation bubble. Left suddenly eighty years out of date, she is on the run in a world she no longer knows, caught in the middle of a human-alien war while agents of Toren hunt her for the information only she has–the location of the pristine world of Sequoyah.

The Long Way Home is the first book in the Sequoyah trilogy.

I’m a big fan of Sabrina Chase. I first read her book “Firehearted” when it was offered for free. I was instantly hooked on her easy style of writing. Her heroines are strong yet feminine. Her heroes are handsome, charming, and supportive. There’s nothing I don’t love about her books.

I’m just starting this book. It will be the first science fiction book of hers I’ve ever read and I’m looking forward to the adventure.
