The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter (9)

Kindle:27769 KB Print: 80 pagesPublisher: Warne; New Ed edition (May 28, 2010)ASIN: B004CRSIL0

AMAZON

The Tale of Peter Rabbit was first published by Frederick Warne in 1902 and endures as Beatrix Potter's most popular and well-loved tale. Re-originated in 2002 to mark the centenary of publication bringing it closer to the original edition, six illustrations were restored, four that were removed in 1903 to make room for endpapers and two that have never been used before, Beatrix having initially prepared more illustrations than could be accommodated in the original format.
AUTHOR BIO: Beatrix Potter loved the countryside and spent much of her childhood drawing and studying animals. The Tale of Peter Rabbit¸ published in 1902, was her first book, expanded from an illustrated letter she had sent to a young friend. Beatrix Potter went on to publish more than 20 tales and collections of rhymes.

REVIEW: I read this as a child, but didn't remember a bit of it while reading now.

He'll crush his enemies to protect me, but will he break my heart?

HOLLY
When that rebel biker hunk Axl Archer thundered into my life, he kidnapped my heart with one kiss. Then the bastard Reapers put a hit on me, forcing Axl to bring me into his club—and his bed.

Now we're on the run, where death and treachery lurk everywhere. He's dangerous, and his existence threatens everything I love. I shouldn't want him, but the harder I shove him away, the deeper he slips inside me.

AXL
She knocks me out like f*ckin' morphine. A good girl like Holly is a drug for a broken man like me. But I can't get that little spitfire outta my mind, so when she needs a bodyguard, I'm there. Until the brutal, bloodsoaked end—unless my love ruins her first.

They don't know it yet, but the f*ckers coming after her are already dead. I'm gonna make her mine, and no man will ever touch her again. I…

A pillar of American literature, Mark Twain's prototypical coming-of-age introduces the iconic Tom Sawyer and his best friend Huckleberry Finn.
