On My Wishlist (51)

On My Wishlist is a fun weekly event hosted by Book Chick City and runs every Saturday. It's where I list all the books I desperately want but haven't actually bought yet. They can be old, new or forthcoming.

"From acclaimed author Jen Holling comes the second novel in a sensual new trilogy full of passion and intrigue about a trio of sisters with the remarkable gift of witchcraft."Gillian MacDonell has always felt lacking because, unlike her sisters, she did not inherit any mystical powers. But when her father arranges a match with notorious Nicholas Lyon, Earl of Kincreag -- a Scotsman rumored to have murdered his wife -- strange visions plague her like never before. From Gillian's first moment inside Kincreag Castle, she is filled with foreboding and when attempts are made on her life, she fears the rumors may be true. But their passion burns bright and Nicholas's cold heart starts to melt. Will his desire for her turn to wrath when he learns that she's really a witch after all?

"Life's like a good card game-never let them know what you're holding." That was Beau McMaster's motto. And with one lucky turn of the cards in a high=stakes poker garme, he found himself on his way to Montana, the new owner of a local ranch and saloon. But he was a Southern gentleman through and through, and he liked his coffee black and his woman bold, just like the new schoolteacher in town. He knew it was only a matter of time before the auburn-haired beauty fell to the charm of the McMasters touch. Miss Abigail Butler intended to keep her cards close to her chest, and not even a honeyed Southern drawl would make her show her hand and spill her secrets. With a reward on her head and Pinkerton agents on her tail, she couldn't afford anything other than anonymity. But the golden-eyed gambler awakened her desires, and with time quickly running out, she found he was only one who could help her turn the Luck of The Draw


All it took was a flick of the wrist. A deft touch of his sword point and Drake the Dragon bared her bound breasts. Then with the heat of his hands along her skin, he bared her soul. All the wantonness Jacquelyn had denied herself as a famous courtesan's daughter, all the desire she'd held in her heart while running Lord Gabriel Drake's estate flooded through her at his touch. Not that she could let a bloody pirate know it.

Gabriel may have left his seafaring days behind, but his urge to plunder was stronger than ever. Especially if it involved full, ripe lips and a warm, soft body. Unfortunately, he needed Jacquelyn's help, not her maidenhead, to learn how to behave properly toward a lady so he could marry and produce an heir. Yet Mistress Jack was the only woman he wanted, no matter what her heritage. And everyone knows what a pirate wants, a pirate takes...

The Civil War has torn Brianna Taylor’s family apart and made her a widow. Determined to ease the suffering of the wounded crowding the Union hospitals and honor the memory of the man she loved, she embarks on a career as a nurse. But then he arrives—a patient who makes her feel alive again in spite of her resolve to stay detached.

Captain Justin Thompson understands the cost of war all too well, yet he felt compelled to fight for the Union his father died defending. Wounded at Cold Harbor and left to die at a military hospital, he owes his life to Brianna, who seems determined to guard her professional boundaries despite his best efforts to breach them. Just as he’s winning the battle for her heart, he’s forced to return to the front of a cruel war that could very well separate them forever.
