Mailbox Monday: January 3

Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. (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 @ The Printed Page, is on a blog tour. Rose City Reader is January's host.

I didn't think I would have a post for this week since posting my Christmas goodies and being on vacation, but today, as I sat down to do some damage with my B&N gift card, I discovered this awesome Nookbook freebie and downloaded it right away! I've been wanting to read Higginbotham forever!

From the bedchamber to the battlefield, through treachery and fidelity, one woman is imprisoned by the secrets of the crown.

The Traitor's WifeIt is an age where passion reigns and treachery runs as thick as blood. Young Eleanor has two men in her life: her uncle King Edward II, and her husband Hugh le Despenser, a mere knight but the newfound favorite of the king. She has no desire to meddle in royal affairs—she wishes for a serene, simple life with her family. But as political unrest sweeps the land, Eleanor, sharply intelligent yet blindly naïve, becomes the only woman each man can trust.

Fiercely devoted to both her husband and her king, Eleanor holds the secret that could destroy all of England—and discovers the choices no woman should have to make.

At its heart, The Traitor's Wife is a unique love story that every reader will connect with.

What did you get this week?

  3. I picked up that one too for my kindle computer app. My mailbox will post tomorrow - but the only thing I got last week was Selene of Alexandria by Faith L. Justice. Oh, and I also got a huge box of 27 Janet Evanovitch books that I won on Ebay - but those I bought for my mom so it doesn't really count.

  4. This sounds so good and free on top of that! My mailbox is also up.
