Where Secrets Smolder...
Calm. Cool. Collected. Gisele Whitby has perfected the art of illusion—her survival, after all, has depended upon it. Years ago, to escape an abusive husband, Gisele "disappeared." Now she must risk revealing her new identity to save another innocent girl from the same fate. But she needs a daring man for her scheme, and the rogue in question shows a remarkable talent . . . for shattering Gisele's carefully constructed façade and igniting her deepest desires.
This isn't the first time Jamie Montcrief has awakened naked and confused from a night of drinking. It is, however, the first time a stunningly beautiful woman offers him payment afterward. Gisele has a business proposition for him, a mission involving cunning thievery and a brazen rescue. How can he say no to a plot this dangerous . . . and a woman this delectable?

First Thought when Finished: I’ve Got My Duke to Keep Me Warm by Kelly Bowen is going to make my top 10 of the year.
Quick Thoughts This book is the best historical I have read this year and I have read some damn good historicals. I loved everything about it: the characters, story, emotion, love, intrigue, hero, leading lady, side characters, and conclusion. I laughed, cheered, teared up, and twisted my hands together many times. The emotional core story of Gisele and how she chose to fight back (even in her limited role of the times) was fantastic. Needless to say I will recommend this highly and reread it again!

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
