"Taken by Storm" , "Prey", and a Contest!

Okay, sorry that I do not have the time to write a full review for the two books I finished today, but I figured I'd at least post them and how many stars they get. I may come back at a later day to write a review for them, but if not...Well, you're just have to trust my rating, won't you? I read Taken by Storm by Donna Fletcher. Great historical romance, set in Scotland. It's filled with adventure and passion, love and laughs. 4.5/5 STARS! The other one was a teen fiction novel by one of my favorite authors, Lurlen McDaniel, Prey. It was different from what she's written before, and the story line (A female teacher seducing a 15 year old male student, they get it on and 'fall in love' with each other, or so they say) was just.. wrong. However, she wrote it nicely, like always, and I will admit that the story line, though nasty, is very true more often than we'd like to admit.... 4/5 STARS! One more thing before I go. There is a contest going on for 50 copies of Joy Nash’s Immortals: The Crossing. The series is amazing, written by more than just one author, and I'm excited to see what Joy Nash's book, the next in the series, will be like-- probably just as amazing as the others, I'm sure.
