#5: The Lost Prince - Julie Kagawa

(Affiliate link)


Don't look at Them. Never let Them know you can see Them.
That is Ethan Chase's unbreakable rule. Until the fey he avoids at all costs—including his reputation—begin to disappear, and Ethan is attacked. Now he must change the rules to protect his family. To save a girl he never thought he'd dare to fall for.
Ethan thought he had protected himself from his older sister's world—the land of Faery. His previous time in the Iron Realm left him with nothing but fear and disgust for the world Meghan Chase has made her home, a land of myth and talking cats, of magic and seductive enemies. But when destiny comes for Ethan, there is no escape from a danger long, long forgotten.

Review:
I know this is a new series, but I felt like it was still part of the old series. It felt like book five to me, even though told from a totally different perspective. Which I also liked that about this book. Not being from Meghans' view, but anothers'. I won't tell you who, as I wouldn't want to spoil it.
I still swoon for Ash, but now Keirran is in the picture and so much more alluring. If I had a book-boyfriend, it would be hard to choose. Meh, I'll take 'em both.  :-)
I will admit to you, this book is not as action-packed as the past books. I felt it was the story that sets us up for the next book that'll have the bang in it. It does have excitement and action, but it had more story to it.
Grimalkin is still my favorite character, though I was sad he didn't play a bigger part in the book. I love that sarcastic and saucy snagglepuss! After all, he's a cat.
I can't wait for the next book!

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
