I hope that some time this week I will have time to put up a list of my favorite authors and books, and also books I want to read.

Swim The River by Stephy Smith

Blurb: Since Amelia 'Falcon Woman' Tucker was a small child, she heard the stories of how her mother was Rescued from the River by her father. Rising Wolf held her heart captive for years before he asked for her hand in marriage. Although the river had always called to her, she never knew how much she loved the stalwart Indian until she had to Swim the River to save him.

I liked this book. I was caught up in wanting to know what would happen next with these characters. One of the reasons I liked this book is because I am part native american and it was interesting to see a glimpse of how life was like back then. I have never read a book in the native americans' point of view, the ones I saw did not look interesting. I do wish this book was a little longer it was a very quick read. I give it* 3 1/2 stars*.

Compromising Kessen by Rachel Van Dyken

Compromising Kessen
Title: Compromising Kessen
Author: Rachel Van Dyken
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: 253 pages
Release Date: February 2012

ISBN: 978-1-936852-98-7
The last thing career-driven Kessen Newberry wants is to leave her home in Colorado to spend a Season in London, far away from her job, her friends and the memories of her mother. However, her father, the Earl of Newberry, threatens to disinherit her unless she gets in touch with her British roots. She complies, but has no intention of enjoying the experience.

That is until she meets Christian Vandenbrook, the arrogant and irritatingly handsome future Duke of Albany and her father's business partner. Unfortunately, Christian hates Americans. And coffee. And apparently, Kessen.
A hatred this passionate can only lead to one thing… marriage.

Caught in the middle of a Regency-inspired nightmare, Kessen and Christian are forced to marry in only one week's time. Resigned to their fate, the two resolve to give the relationship a chance—which would be much easier if everyone would stop interrupting them every time they found a moment alone.

There was a time in the book that I was a little frustrated with the characters. Also I would forget that the character are suppose to be older then me, I am 20 and they seemed like teenagers. This was a cute book and is also clean even though the title seemed a little misleading. I will say i is a pg-13 rating.  Different from other contemporary books with a mix of historical fiction. I loved the cover. I give it *3 1/2 *stars.
