What Did I Receive?

Hey everyone-- TGIF, right? I know that's how I feel!
So here's my (short) post of everything bookrelated I received in the mail this past week. Think of it as my 'In My Mailbox' type of thing, but under my own (not so creative) name.
This week, I had only one visit from the UPS man, but that's okay! :D I've got so many others in my TBR pile, not to mention the work load from classes, to keep me busy for a while.
Here's what came:

Title: Knight of Desire

Author: Margaret Mallory
Genre: Historical Romance
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Publication Date: July 2009
Series: All the King's Men Series (Book 1) Summary (B&N):
His surcoat still bloody from battle, William FitzAlan comes to claim the strategic borderlands granted to him by the king. One last prize awaits him at the castle gates: the lovely Lady Catherine Rayburn.
Catherine risked everything to spy for the crown. Her reward? Her lands are declared forfeit and she is given this choice: marry FitzAlan or be taken to the Tower. Catherine agrees to give her handsome new husband her body, but she's keeping secrets, and dare not give him her heart. As passion ignites and danger closes in, Catherine and William must learn to trust in each other to save their marriage, their land, and their very lives.
Thanks so much to Cheryl @ Cheryl's Book Nook, whom I won this from in a contest, and Grand Central Publishing for providing the book.

Now, I know, you're probably wondering where my latest 'Want to Read' post is....... .....And I'm sorry to say I'm going to have to put it off for another day or two-- I've just got so behind on my posts this week, with my full course load kicking in. But I'm going to work on it today, and hopefully have it up either tomorrow or Sunday at the latest. Next week, I'll try to get it done on Friday like I've promised. :D Oh, and Cecile, I promise I haven't forgotten your prize yet-- I'm going to *try* to remember to send it off tomorrow when I go to town! :D Enjoy your weekend everyone-- I know I sure will, I just wish it was longer! Until Next Time, The Book Queen

That's funny that we both won a copy around the same time! :D When I post my review for it, we'll have to see how it compares for us. :)

Thanks! :D I went to the post office yesterday, and forgot that they've cut back hours here, all that was open was the lobby, not the packaging area. But I will have it out Tuesday (since tomorrow is Labor Day). :D Enjoy!

Nikola-- Thanks! I know that quiet a few people have loved this book, so I'm anxious to get started, though it may be a week or so, trying to get my challanges finished up first. :D And then I'll post the review as soon as I can.

Thank you! :D I love the cover for it, along with the next book in the series (not out yet, I believe). I think you'll like this one!

Oh, thanks for the awards-- I'm heading over now! :D I'm so behind on those, I've still got one, from Cecile in fact, that I've posted on my sidebar, but have yet to write a post and pass it on.. Oops! I'll have to take a day soon and just post blog awards! :D

Thanks for stopping by everyone!

Hope you all enjoy the rest of your long(er) weekend!

Until Next Time,
