Books I Will Review In July:

True Love by Jude Deveraux

Jude Deveraux, the New York Times bestselling author of unforgettable romance, returns with a breathtaking first book in a fantastic new series—the Nantucket Brides trilogy. Set on the magical Massachusetts island, True Love introduces characters from a new generation of Montgomery-Taggerts, the beloved family from Deveraux’s classic novels. 
Just as Alix Madsen is finishing up architectural school, Adelaide Kingsley dies and wills her, for one year, the use of a charming nineteenth-century Nantucket house. The elderly woman’s relationship to the Madsen family is a mystery to the spirited Alix—fresh from a romantic breakup—but for reasons of her own Alix accepts the quirky bequest, in part because it gives her time to plan her best friend’s storybook wedding. 
But unseen forces move behind the scenes, creaking Kingsley House’s ancient floorboards. It seems that Adelaide Kingsley had a rather specific task for Alix: to solve the strange disappearance of one of the Kingsley women, Valentina, more than two hundred years ago. If that wasn’t troubling enough, Alix must deal with the arrogant (and extremely good-looking) architect Jared Montgomery, who is living in the property’s guesthouse. 
Unbeknown to Alix, Jared has been charged with looking after her while she lives on the island—an easy task for him, considering the undeniable chemistry between the two. But Jared harbors secrets of his own, which, if revealed, may drive a wedge between the pair. 
With a glorious Nantucket wedding on the horizon, sparks fly, and the ghosts of the past begin to reveal themselves—some of them literally. Finding their lives inextricably entwined with the turbulent fortunes of their ancestors, Alix and Jared discover that only by righting the wrongs of the past can they hope to be together.

The Silver Chain by Primula Bond

Bound by passion, she was powerless to resist.
One dark evening in London, photographer Serena Folkes is indulging her impulsive side with a night-time shoot. But someone is watching her – mysterious entrepreneur Gustav Levi. Serena doesn’t know it yet, but this handsome stranger will change her life forever…
Serena is fascinated by Gustav, the enigmatic owner of the Levi Gallery, and she soon feels an irresistible pull of attraction. The interest is mutual, and Gustav promises to launch Serena’s photographic career at his gallery, but only if Serena agrees to become his exclusive companion.
To mark their agreement, Gustav gives Serena a bracelet to wear at all times. Attached to it is a silver chain of which he is the keeper. With the chain Gustav controls Serena physically and symbolically – a sign that she is under his power.
As their passionate relationship intensifies, Gustav’s hold on the silver chain grows stronger. But will Gustav’s dark past tear them apart?
An erotic romance novel perfect for fans of 50 Shades of Grey and Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series. The Silver Chain is the first in the sexy, passionate and addictive Unbreakable Trilogy by Primula Bond.

Playing the Air by Bill Dunlop

Luce Cameron doesn’t want to go home, not even when her dying godfather tells her there’s a lost manuscript to be found there. It’s three years since she was one of ‘John Knox’s G Strings’, a band that had a future. Luce isn’t sure what hers is any more. She persuades theatre technician Ninian Tulloch to go to Dunpark House in her stead. He finds himself travelling in the company of ‘promising’ comedian Eddie Corcoran and on-the-run Rob Ainslie, but none of them expect the undivided attention of relentless Inspector Maurice Macquarie. Caught up in a plot to retrieve smuggled diamonds from Dunpark House, the hapless trio endure life-threatening experiences such as disposing of an inconvenient corpse, rough sleeping and recreational dancing with a ladies cricket team.  
While these three are making their frequently interrupted journey to Loch Tay, another narrative unfolds. Archibald Cameron, heir to Dunpark House, finds himself involved in balloon experiments that interest Oliver Corcoran, a double agent anxious to escape both his employers. Real events, such as the naval mutinies of 1797, the Tranent massacre and Loch Tay militia riots, mingle with the fates of Archibald, his friend Tam Linton and Oliver.
Past and present collide when the worst storm in almost two hundred years hits the shores of Loch Tay and threatens to engulf both...
An entertainment disguised as a blackly comic crime thriller with historical outbursts, Playing the Air reminds us we all rewrite our own histories, forget what we ought to remember and ignore our past, yet somehow keep smiling.

Pursuing them are the CIA, Arab extremists and the Mossad, for whom murder and deception are tools of trade. Relationships of love and loyalty are torn apart as tensions build throughout this novel, providing dramatic twists on the way to a gripping climax.
