In My Mailbox (#5) – The Christmas-2009 Edition

In My Mailbox is hosted by Kristi at The Story Siren

As it is the day after Christmas (here in the Netherlands we have 2 Christmas days) I’ve decided to also list my Christmas presents…One of which was a romance novel, gifted by my hubby, which I will list at the end of the post with the books. My jaw just dropped when I opened that present…actually it contained two books, but as I’m lacking in updating my wishlist and hubby really came to my blog and looked at my wishlist in order to buy me some books, he bought me a book that I’d already received but hadn’t taken of the wishlist yet. But I was so surprised that he actually got me books that I don’t care and it WAS my own fault for not keeping the list updated. He is, however, going to exchange the duplicate book for another one (I gave him a list this time…) tomorrow.

So back to the point…Below are the pictures of what I got for Christmas this year from hubby (the tea package was from my mother-in-law, even though we said no gifts, she still brought hubby and me something when the family came to our Christmas Brunch yesterday)

And now the books:


Author: Patricia Grasso
Title: Marrying the Marquis
Series: The Kazanov Series, book 7/Flambeau Sisters series, book 3
Genre: Historical Romance
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Release date: December 2009
Xmas gift from hubby!!!!

Daughter of a wealthy duke, Blaze Flambeau has no shortage of gentlemen vying for her hand in marriage-yet all she desires is her independence. She’d much rather devote her energies to caring for her prized thoroughbred than to the fortune hunters who knock down her door. But her father is ready to see her wed, so he makes her a bargain: she may participate in the racing season only if she gives each suitor a fighting chance at her heart.

One man, however, makes Blaze a far more scandalous proposition: her reputation or his bed! For Ross MacArthur, Marquis of Awe, knows something that could ruin her, and he will not hesitate to use it to win her. Blaze cannot let the Scottish rogue have his way-or her innocence-but never in her life has she been so tempted. Perhaps the Marquis’s scheme doesn’t pose such a dilemma after all…

Even though the evidence seems to exonerate her, Abby is plagued by doubts—and soon by mysterious threats. A young psychiatrist, Dr. Jason Coble, is intrigued by Abby and offers to help her explore the dark recesses in her mind.

The individual who collects all six statues and deciphers the code locked within will be awarded controlling interest in Roarke Resorts.

Hailey Roarke was never interested in her family’s fortune. That’s why she became a cop. But with her father and now her cousin dead, she’s suddenly on the wrong side of a police interrogation. The only way to clear her name is to solve the riddle before the real killer. Without getting killed herself.

Detective Shane Maxwell can’t deny the spark of lust he feels every time Hailey is near. But the woman is clearly hiding something. Trusting his gut—and the heat in her eyes—he joins her on an elaborate global treasure hunt staged by her late father. Caught between a sizzling seduction and a maniacal murderer, for Hailey and Shane the biggest reward of all will be making it out alive.
