I have had Wolf Signs the second in Ms Arend shifter series earmarked for a few days now and not read it – I am determined to finish it this week.. I did like the first book.

Diana Palmer – one of my Guilty Pleasures of reading latest and as much as I know what will happen – I cannot resist her books.

Revenge – Andrew  Grey

Lovers, Dreamers, and Me - Willa Okati

Disguises – E.M Lynley

Marry Me Or Die - D.J. Manly

River of Tears - Michele L Montgomery

Daring to Dream - Grace Cox

I have loads of book that I will probably get through this week.. but these are must read due to time constraints… Rivers Of Tears is the only one I am dreading…

I have avoided heavily emotional books for a while now and I need to get back into the game so I am taking baby steps here and have decided to go with Rivers Of Tears as my first really emotional read…



Abby meets Caiden when she is sixteen years old and knows she has met her soul mate. At nineteen Abby marries the love of her life and together they begin a family of their own. Life gives them a gift, but this gift is short lived. After seven years of marriage it ends.

>Abby is left alone with her two children and the bloody clothes that Caiden was last seen in. With the horrifying revelations from her mother in law Abby sets out to prove her husband is indeed alive and that he's been taken against his will by his mother, brothers, and sisters in a sick and twisted game of keep-away.
Knowing her husband isn't dead, Abby, with the help and support of her family, begins a search that takes her from Arizona to Arkansas and lasts for a span of eight years. 

On a visit to Caiden's birthplace, Abby and her brother Chase meet with Caiden's best friend who fills them in with the secrets of her husband's childhood and of the hell he endured. He tells them of the nightmares, the deceit, and the abuse Caiden suffered at the hands of his family.

More determined than ever to locate her husband, before his family kills him, Abby hires a private investigator who opens the doors to Caiden's private world of hell and exposes his family for what they are, but will he be on time? Will Abby be on time to save her soul mate? Can she make him want to fight one last time?

Impressive list! I only read one book a week! The Vivian Arend books are on my tbr pile. Happy reading!

Amy C on 9 November 2009 at 11:32 said...

Hey E.H>
That River of Tears sure does sound like it could be quite emotional to read, especially if the author gives details about her husbands childhood abuse. I have difficulties with that type of content. It sounds like an interesting book.

A very Happy Reading to you this week :).

Erotic Horizon on 9 November 2009 at 12:14 said...


I doubt I'll read as much as I did last week - being ill has it's positive as you can see...

Doesn't the blurb on RIVERS OF TEAR sound wonderful..

I am so looking forward to reading it .. emotional bits and all...


Erotic Horizon on 9 November 2009 at 12:15 said...


Did you read the first Vivian Arend book - very different...

Happy reading this week..


Erotic Horizon on 9 November 2009 at 12:17 said...


I know what you mean Amy - but I feel good about this book,

So I hope not too much detail as you said... as long as it works out in the end, I'll be happy..
