In My Mailbox (Meme #5)
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. Bloggers who participate in this meme take the opportunity to feature a book they have borrowed, have been gifted as a blog award, received for review, checked out of the library, etc... on their blog. The idea is to get the word out about as many books as possible.
Here is a list of books I have purchased recently and look forward to reading.
The Strange Case of Finley Jayne by Kady Cross
Finley Jayne knows she's not 'normal'. Normal girls don't lose time, or have something inside them that makes them capable of remarkably violent things. Her behavior has already cost her one job, so when she's offered the lofty position of companion to Phoebe, a debutante recently engaged to Lord Vincent, she accepts, despite having no experience. Lord Vincent is a man of science with his automatons and inventions, but Finley is suspicious of his motives where Phoebe is concerned. She will do anything to protect her new friend, but what she discovers is even more monstrous than anything she could have imagined…
An ebook exclusive prequel to The Steampunk Chronicles.
I have to say that I find the idea of this entire series fascinating. You gotta' love the evil scientist bit... plus, the hero is obviously going to be a female. I love that too!
This book can be downloaded for free in ebook format on Amazon. Click here to download your free copy!
Branded by Keary Taylor

Keary Taylor is one of my new friends on Goodreads and I think her book sounds fantastic! Granted, her evil angels are entirely different from those in my book Soul Quest but they appear to be every bit as mischievous and sinister. I'm really looking forward to this read.
Branded is a part of the Fall of Angels Series. The second book in the series in entitled Forsaken and a third installment will be published next year.
Spellbinding by Tessa Stokes
When 18 yr old Chloe McGarry moves with her family from her home in California to an English estate rich in history, she isn't sure what to expect. She never dreamed she'd get caught up in a mystery that has lasted for more than eight hundred years, nor that she'd fall in love with two gorgeous guys.
Chloe's never been lucky in love that is until she meets Oliver Tarrant. He's charming, interested in her and amazing looking. Is he all that he seems?
Her new home holds many mysteries. Out one day exploring the grounds she stumbles across Tristan Dearing. Tristan is enigmatic and beautiful; to begin with, he tries to keep himself apart from Chloe until she uncovers his secret; a secret he has been keeping for 800 years.
As Chloe, Oliver and Tristan form an unexpected alliance they must work together to save each other from the 800 year old magic spell which threatens to destroy Tristan for ever.
Chloe must travel back in time to save Tristan and find the real reason Oliver looks so familiar to them both.
Will Chloe's life ever be the same again?
Spellbinding was recommended to me by my friend Julie on Goodreads. This book has juicy love triangle written all over it. I just love a good love triangle paranormal romance so I magically downloaded it onto my Kindle. I can't wait to dive into this book.
Spellbinding is a part of The Seven Spell Saga. Other books in this series include The Spell Breaker and The Seven Spell.
