Mailbox Monday: September 26

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 @ A Girl and Her Books, is on a blog tour! This month's host is Amused By Books.

Came back from the beach to a mailbox full of lovely books for review! Makes coming home a little easier!

The Faerie Ring follows a young pickpocket on a magical adventure through the gritty slums and glittering ballrooms of Victorian London as she attempts to save the kingdom from a group of renegade faeries who are prepared to stop at nothing to claim England as their own. Debut novelist Kiki Hamilton delivers an irresistible, spellbinding tale of romance, suspense, and danger for readers of all ages.

The Sister Queens. A stunning debut novel of Marguerite and Eleanor of Provence--sisters, rivals, and queens of France and England in the 13th century. Patient, perfect, and used to being first, Marguerite becomes Queen of France. Her husband, Louis IX, is considered the greatest monarch of his age. But he is also a religious zealot who denies himself the love and companionship his wife craves. Can Marguerite find enough of her sister’s boldness to grasp her chance for happiness in a forbidden love?

Passionate, strong-willed, and stubborn, Eleanor becomes Queen of England. Henry III, is a very good man…and a very bad king. His failures are bitter disappointments for Eleanor, who has worked to best her elder sister since childhood. Can Eleanor stop competing with her sister and value what she has, or will she let it slip away?

Tempest  from Amazon Vine. The year is 2009. Nineteen-year-old Jackson Meyer is a normal guy…he’s in college, has a girlfriend…and he can travel back through time. It's just harmless fun--until the day strangers burst in on Jackson and his girlfriend, Holly, and during a struggle with Jackson, Holly is fatally shot. In his panic, Jackson jumps back two years to 2007, and can’t get back to the future. But it’s not long before the people who shot Holly in 2009 come looking for Jackson in the past, and Jackson must decide how far he’s willing to go to save Holly… and possibly the entire world.

A Lawman's Christmas. Upcoming blog tour! Linda Lael Miller shares some holiday cheer with her latest novel. Set in the winter of 1914, roamer Clay mcKettrick rides into the wildly popular "McKettricks of Texas" series looking to finally settle down and raise a family on a ranch of his own. He isn't interested in uprooting young widow Dara Rose and her children, but he is interested in giving her protection, friendship—and passion. And when they say "I do" to a marriage of convenience, the temporary lawman's Christmas wish is to make Dara Rose his permanent wife…

The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer from the Amazon Vine. Mara Dyer doesn't believe life can get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there. It can. She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed. There is. She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love. She's wrong.

The Time in Between. The inspiring international bestseller of a seemingly ordinary woman who uses her talent and courage to transform herself first into a prestigious couturier and then into an undercover agent for the Allies during World War II. Already a runaway bestseller across Europe, The Time In Between is one of those rare, richly textured novels that enthrall down to the last page. María Dueñas reminds us how it feels to be swept away by a masterful storyteller.

That's it for me. Have you read any of these books?
If so, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
