Hello, my dear followers and friends, now I'll present you with the following gem :) The cover: A smart, handsome man with a blunt elegance, a shirt which reveals more than it conceals, dark hair and a groomed beard. A powerful typeface in dark red which appears to be concise. A dark background which is #mysterious and #dangerous. The story: Twenty years ago, the 8-year old Henry, is playing with his playmate Abby until he hears a woman cry for her life. He dashes to the sound and realizes that Abby's dad - Mr Sullivan - is arguing with a heavily pregnant woman. Only a short time afterwards, he also notices the six-year old Keeley is hiding behind a tree. She has pale blue eyes, dark hair, many bruises on her arms and legs and filthy, shattered clothes. Henry wants to be a #knight when he is grown up so he promises her to protect her from all "bad men" by giving her his wooden sword and receiving a token (a shoelace) from her. He gives her the sword since his name (H.W.C.) is written upon it. At present: Keeley is a barmaid in the Cocoon Nightclub. A man gazes at her with unabashed lust. He is obviously a bad boy (a kind Keeley knows much about) and she is fascinated and at the same time enraged by the open interest he shows. But Keeley had enough of bad boys (even though she has livid and wild daydreams when she is gazing at him!). Jax, a former boyfriend with lots tattoos and muscles, yet even more problems he is causing, is a violent drug dealer and also sold drugs to her younger brother Drew. Unfortunately, Drew seems to be addicted again and he stole money and dope from Jax. Now Jax wants to kill them both when Keeley won't get him 10.000 Dollars. Of course, when Jax appears, Henry (the good-looking stranger) rushes to her aid and really gentlemanlike defends her. However can Keeley really trust him after all her bad experience in the past she had with men? And what is Henry's #secret? And where is Drew? A 5-star #romantic #novel with many #twists and #surprises! #bookstagram #books #bücher #romance #romantik

"The Pursual" is the first #book of the Nome Chronicles, written by F. F John. It is about #intrigues, #adventure, #illusions and betrayal. The novel plays in the 25th century. The Plot: Neith's world consists of 20 different nomes in which the #society is separated. This makes it difficult for her to pursue her real #love: Invier because her family is 2nd in rank and Invier’s family is on the last spot. She knows that her father will never allow a marriage between her and Invier because Invier's rank in society is so low and she hast o marry into a profitable alliance. That's why Neith talked her father into organizing a pursual which means that candidates will compete which each other in different #challenges in order to win the hand of her. The last pursual happened when Invier's late grandmother was born so it's a historical event. However Invier doesn't want to take part in the ceremony, but wants to envelope with Neith, even if they live in poverty. Despite that Neith is best friend with Bel, she can't explain her why she has to make sure that Invier has to participate even if he doesn't know it yet... And Bel also seems to have more and more secrets. Will Neith lies destroy the relationship? What are Bel's #secrets?
