Book of the Week / HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Someone commented to me the other day that not everyone likes military books and therefore my book of the week should perhaps appeal to wider variety of people... I thought about this statement for a minute or two before I came to this conclusion....It's my blog, damn it, I'll pick any book I want ;)... but in all seriousness she was right, I had quite the military theme going (for obvious reasons) but as today is a special day I shall pick this week's Book of the Week in honour of someone who only gets to celebrate this day once every 4 years... Hence


HAPPY BIRTHDAY DENISE!!!!!!

Here's a picture of you during our trip to Europe Feb 2004... we searched for this little guy and Voilá! We found him... don't you look happy???



Anyhoo, back to the Book of the Week. In honour of Denise I shall choose something that her and I both love - Julie Garwood... I think this may be in your top 5 Julie Garwood picks, but pardon me if I'm a bit off...

From the Editors:


In the feuding English court, gentle Lady Madelyne suffered the cruel whims of her ruthless brother, Baron Louddon. Then, in vengeance for a bitter crime, Baron Duncan of Wexton—the Wolf—unleashed his warriors against Louddon''s main. Exquisite Madelyne was the prize he captured...but when he gazed upon the proud beauty, he pledged to protect her with his life. In his rough-hewn castle, Duncan proved true to his honor. But when at last their noble passion conquered them both, she surrendered with all her soul. Now, for love, Madelyne would stand fast...as bravely as her Lord, the powerful Wolf who fought for...Honor''s Splendour.

I can attest that it is a good book, as are most of Julie's - and although it isn't set in Scotland I can work with the English background, plus it is historical and we know how much I love that... Can you tell I'm a hopeless romantic?
