A Pirate's Pleasure
Date Posted: 4/4/2010 | Go To Book Page

Skye is on her way to Virginia from England to marry a man she has never met. While at sea her ship is captured by One-Eyed Jack the pirate, then she is "saved" by a handsome pirate named the Silver Hawk. The Hawk takes her as his prize until her betrothed comes to pay a ransom for her. While on the Hawk's private island she falls in love with him. Lord Cameron comes to take her home and she is ready to kill him and fight the marrige that her father made behind her back. Lord Cameron tries to stay away from her so that she may never know his secret. The first night she is in Cameron Hall she runs away and ends up getting lost in the dark forest. Lord Cameron comes to her rescue once again and they spend the night in the forest. She feels so comfortable with him that she finds herself telling him about her terror of the night. They soon find that her father has been taken prisoner by the awful pirate Logan. Logan hates the Hawk and will try anything to kill him. In a rescue attempt both the Hawk and Skye are taken as prisoners by Logan. After a thrilling fight that ends in beheading the Hawk comes to find Skye. Skye has found out that the pirate and her husband are one and the same. She discovers that she loves him deeply and can not bare the thought of him being hanged. The terror of the fight between Logan and the man she loves causes her too faint. When Skye wakes in her own bed she is terrified that her husband is to be hanged and goes in search of him. She finds him in his special spot by the river that his great-grandparents had named Eden. To try to get him to find legal representation for the trail she is sure he will have. Lord Cameron tells his secret. And she tells him she believes she is carrying his child. I really liked this story, it had enough adventure and romance in it to keep my interest.

For me a great book is about the characters. This book had wonderful characters. Moran really thought out the relationships of the characters. I really liked this book. Moran brought Nefertiti's rein to life for me. This is the best historical novel I have read.

The School of Essential Ingredients
Date Posted: 4/4/2010 | Go To Book Page

"Once a month on Monday night, eight students gather in Lillian's restaurant for a cooking class. The students have come to learn the art behind Lillian's soulful dishes, but it soon becomes clear that each seeks a recipe for something beyond the kitchen. One by one they are transformed by the aromas, flavors, and textures of what they create Over time, the paths of the students mingle and intertwine, and the essence of Lillian's cooking expands beyond the restaurant and into the secret corners of their lives, with results that are often unexpected, and always delicious"<br/><br/>This was a wonderful story. The characters were believable and the art of cooking was inspiring. The story was very connected. I really enjoyed this story.
