Mailbox Monday: November 22

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. (Checked out library books don’t count, but eBooks & audiobooks do). Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists!

Mailbox Monday, created by Marcia at The Printed Page,
is on a blog tour! This month's host is Knitting and Sundries.
(Next month's host is Me!!)


The Dressmaker: A NovelReview copy from Atria/Simon & Schuster. Released last month. A historical novel about a young woman named Ellen Gowan, who rises from humble origins to become one of the most sought-after dressmakers in Victorian England.






Borders gave me $10 in Rewards so I bought two ebooks:


A Christmas Waltz (Zebra Historical Romance)I'm getting into the spirit and the premise of this one caught my eye: 1894. Young British lady Amelia Wellesley is swept off her feet in London by a cowboy in a traveling show. Believing herself engaged to Carson Kittredge she travels to Texas to find him only to discover he has no intention to marry her. But his handsome doctor brother Boone does. As Boone and Amelia forge a fragile bond, something goes terribly wrong—and it will take nothing less than a Christmas miracle for Amelia to discover who she is destined to love…


Drink of MeIn a world where emotion can be a deadly weapon, one slight, battered runaway holds the key to a dark and twisted enigma..."Drink Of Me", she whispers, her silver eyes trusting, pleading. What female dares speak such words to one of the Sange? His people are scorned by every race for their fierce sensuality, their fearful rituals. And as Prime, Reule is the most telepathically gifted of them all. But nothing has prepared him for the intensity of emotion radiating from the outlander rescued by his Pack. Terrified, tormented, but beautiful beyond measure, Mystique shatters his legendary control. As she reaches for him in the steamy heat of the healing baths, he knows this blind need can have but one end...
