End of the year review -Part 1

It has been awhile. There has been a lot of books to review. But here is a few that I have finished.  I am sorry I am having problems loading the covers.

Fearless Love

Madison Carmichael's carefully controlled world has just spun off its axis. Not only has jet-setting playboy and investor Jake Colt landed his helicopter in the middle of the biggest photo shoot of her career, she is shocked to discover he purchased her parents' financially troubled winery. 

Madison refuses to let this interloper take what belongs to her family, no matter what passions he stirs in her heart. She'll do anything to get him out of Serenity Creek and her family's business, even if it means striking a deal that goes against every grain in her body with the arrogant man himself. 

Jake has no interest in handling the Carmichael winery acquisition, but he has little choice considering the business agreement he made with his father. As with all of his father's dealings, there are strings attached, and Jake is determined to cut them at all costs.

If he is going to spend time in the backwards town that reminds him too much of the one that betrayed him all to turn some two bit winery around, he is going to do it on his own terms, which includes encouraging the feisty woman who has captured his attention to break out of her shell and live a little. 

But when two opposing forces clash, sparks are bound to fly…

Jake and Madison story was a sweet love story. It is a clean and nice short story that can be finished in a day. It is a great choice when you want a light read. 
I give it 3*stars.

The Silver Princess by Lea Carter

The Silver PrincessThe Silver Princess
Have you ever tried to imagine what it would be like if fairies grew up? Or if they didn't spend their time preparing to paint flowers or spread frost?

Rebecca could be the girl next door - with wings and a crown. She has very few worries, until the day she has a riding accident and is rescued by a mysterious man-fairy.

In the world of Fairydom, wisdom wins out despite inexperience when young Princess Rebecca takes on civil unrest and the handsome stranger. Readers of all ages will cheer her courage as she defies those intent on dethroning her father.
I really enjoyed it, I couldn't stop reading it took me only a day to read. It was very sweet and I LOVED that they were fairies. I thought that it was neat that even though this was a fantasy it seemed like a historical fiction because the fairies were like humans minus the flying. :) I would be interested in  what happens next. I give this book 4* stars.

The wind whisperer

It has been awhile. Here is my new review.
The Wind Whisperer
The Wind WhispererAt fifteen, Anaii is the most important member of her tribe—and the most mysterious. Ever since Anaii can remember, the spirits of the wind have whispered of fertile hunting grounds and imminent enemy attacks. But when her people are ambushed by a brother clan without any apparent cause, the spirits remain eerily silent.

As the village prepares to retaliate, Anaii is pressured by her best friend, Elan, to marry him. It's an old plea—Elan has spent a lifetime loving her, but Anaii only sees a childhood playmate out of an imposing warrior. Stifled by Elan's insistence, Anaii escapes into the forest where she meets Jayttin, the beautiful son of the enemy chief.

Enamored by Jayttin's carefree spirit and hope for peace, she repeatedly sneaks away to be with him, but when her deception is discovered, Elan is devastated. Pledging his lifelong affection, Elan gives her a passionate kiss, and Anaii begins to see her friend in a new light.

While Anaii is tormented over which man she must choose, the wind whispers of a new threat that could destroy both tribes. Only a union will afford a chance at survival, but the reality of that union is based on one thing—which man Anaii chooses to die.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved the love triangle, it really kept my interest. I was torn between the two men in the first half of the story and then by the middle of the story I had chosen my favorite. I was a little unsure who she would pick but in the end I was right. I enjoyed the mystery of it. Anaii was selfish but she kept it interesting. I look forward to know what happens next to her.  I give it 4* stars.
