#Win Bulletproof Badge by Angi Morgan (US)

An 11th generation Texan, Angi utilizes her strong heritage to create passionate characters willing to risk everything. She writes Intrigues where danger and honor collide with love. When the house is quiet, she plots ways to engage her readers with complex story lines, throwing her hero and heroine into situations they’ll never overcome...until they find the one person they can love.

With her three children out of the house, Angi concentrated on her work, finding her dream agent and editor. She and her husband live in North Texas with only the four-legged ‘kids’ to interrupt her writing. Tex & Roxie keep Angi and her characters company and remind her to occasionally take time off to play.



Praise for Angi Morgan


“I loved her writing style, even though I felt the story gave me heart palpitations at times.”
                                    -Amazon Reviewer

“Angi Morgan has such a talent with a complex plot and great characters! She places roadblocks before her characters so smoothly that I never have to question how it happened, a little nail-biting, but no doubts that the action fits, but the characters keep moving forward with intelligent successes that have me cheering.”
                                    -Amazon Reviewer

Angi Morgan does a great job of fleshing out her characters…Hope Harlequin brings more from Angi Morgan!!!

  How-To-Tips for Aspiring Writers

Advice on how to break into the series-writing business;
My advice– One: write every day. Two–Establish your writing time to discover what works and what the process is. Then when you sell–because those who don’t give up, do–you and your family will be ready for deadlines. Series authors have a lot of deadlines. How do you accomplish either? By writing every day.

His key witnesses dead, Texas Ranger Garrison Travis had to protect innocent bystander Kenderly Tyler. Her crucial evidence had two very dangerous Texas crime families willing to do anything to keep her quiet. But Garrison's undercover status had branded him a killer, and now the bad and the good guys were after them both.
Hiding out with a handsome protector, on the run for her life, was so beyond anything Kenderly had imagined. While there was more than just adrenaline pulsing between them, the Ranger vowed his job was his life. Dare she wonder what would become of them should they actually make it out alive?

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld (13)

Everybody gets to be supermodel gorgeous. What could be wrong with that? 
Tally is about to turn sixteen, and she can't wait. Not for her license -- for turning pretty. In Tally's world, your sixteenth birthday brings an operation that turns you from a repellent ugly into a stunningly attractive pretty and catapults you into a high-tech paradise where your only job is to have a really great time. In just a few weeks Tally will be there. 
But Tally's new friend Shay isn't sure she wants to be pretty. She'd rather risk life on the outside. When Shay runs away, Tally learns about a whole new side of the pretty world -- and it isn't very pretty. The authorities offer Tally the worst choice she can imagine: find her friend and turn her in, or never turn pretty at all. The choice Tally makes changes her world forever.

Scott Westerfeld's teen novels include the Uglies series, the Leviathan and Midnighters trilogies, and the so-called "NYC Trilogy": So Yesterday, Peeps, and The Last Days. Scott was born in Texas, and alternates summers between Sydney, Australia, and New York City. His next book, Afterworlds, comes out September 23, 2014.

REVIEW:
Kinda neat!
I read this book because of its' popularity. Almost every review I had read was favorable and it seemed like a good bet. I have to admit, the sci-fi nature had me worried, it's not usually my thing, but I worried for nothing.
This story was unique, unusual and groovy.
I liked the build up of this world, divided by looks. It's relatable, we live in a society that cares how people look more than how they act. Still, try to imagine if everyone looked the same.... Yeah, doesn't bode well with me either.
I can't wait to read the second book and find out if Tally gets rescued. It's gonna be eating at me until I do.
A great book that is easy to get through. I know why it's such a hit.


4.5/5

"Oh," I said, as it finally clicked. Not a wolf. The Wolf. The one who ate Red Riding Hood's grandma, terrorized the Boy who cried Wolf and threatened the three little pigs. The Big Bad Wolf himself.
