Merry Christmas to Everyone!!!

Yes, I know that I have too many books...But I can't help it...They seem to be labeled with "Buy me..." LOL

This one was bought while I was walking through FNAC with my good friend WhiteLady :)

And finally... I wasn't sure about this one but then I decided to buy it anyway because I had read some good reviews about the english version "Dark Lover" and because it's about..Vampires! LOL

" We were given: Two hands to hold. To legs to walk. Two eyes to see. Two ears to listen. But why only one heart? Because the other was given to someone else... For us to find... "

Hello,everyone...I'm doing a few changes around don't worry if you come here and everything it's upside down :D

Blogspot is killing my head while I try to get everything to work...LOL

Audiobook review: 5/10
Language: English

For 15 years, Danny has been living with a group of orphan thieves, masquerading as a boy, but now, thanks to one highborn rogue, she has lost the only home she's ever known. Determined to make Jeremy Malory pay for trapping her into stealing back his friend's family heirlooms, Danny coerces Jeremy into giving her a respectable job as his new upstairs maid. Jeremy would rather that she become his mistress, but all he can convince her to do is pretend to be his new romantic interest in order to save him from a marriage-minded heiress. While Jeremy and Danny indulge in their little game of seduction, Danny is recognized by the man who killed her parents and thought he had also done away with their young daughter.

The only book by Johanna Lindsey that I've read was Captive of My Desires and to me it wasn't a very special story...So I was a bit suspicious about this one. So I picked the audiobook to listen at the museum where I used to work.

For years Danny, has lived with a small group of orphan thieves disguised as a boy. Now, after being discovered by Jeremy trying to steal his friend's belongings and losing her place at the group of orphans she wants him to pay for what she lost. So he accepts her in his house to work as a maid althought the feelings he has for her grows within each day and he has the wish to make her his mistress. But Danny surprises him by wishing to get marry and to help other orphans by running an orphanage. She is a not a common heroine.

I thought that it was a sweet romance story but not very special.

About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered an extraordinary reprieve. She'll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace - and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia.

And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster. But the chief of security, leaving nothing to chance, deliberately feeds her Butterfly's Dust - and only by appearing for her daily antidote will she delay an agonising death from the poison. As Yelena tries to escape her new dilemma, disasters keep mounting. Rebels plot to seize Ixia and Yelena develops magical powers she can't control.

Her life is threatened again and choices must be made. But this time the outcomes aren't so clear...

I found out about this book while I was searching for historical romances. This one didn't seemed to be an usual romance novel. What caught my attention was the cover and the name itself.

As soon as we start reading we are confronted with Yelena, the heroine of the story. Yelena is about to be executed for the murder of Reyad, son of General Brazell, when she is brought with the offer to be the next food taster of the Commander. As soon as she starts training she is poisoned with Butterfly Dust by Valek, a cold-blooded former assassin and now her master, and that's why she needs to take the antidote daily. But as the story intensify we see Yelena learning to become stronger and

Throught out the story we get to know her and how her life at General Brazell's home had been and why did she killed his son.

This book was lent to me by my good friend Whitelady :) who has already read the sequels and because of her review I wasn't sure that if I wanted to read them. But I already have them in ebook because I'm curious about Yelena's journey. And of course about her romance with Valek :) of how it will work out for them.
