Throwback Thursday: The Broons and Oor Wullie

This is another read that has followed me from my childhood.. Sundays in my house consisted of going to Mass followed by reading of the The Sunday Post at either the church hall or my grandparents house. I wasn't interested in reading the rest of the newspaper, it was always about the comic strips. Every time.
It soon became family tradition that come Christmas we would receive The Broons and Oor Wullie annuals as gifts. My older sister and I would ignore everything else whilst we read a book each before swapping with each other.

Blog Tour: The Marquess and the Maiden by Robyn DeHart

About the Book:

Harriet Wheatley is the mastermind behind the Ladies of Virtue's quest to rehabilitate the gentlemen of the ton. So when it comes to selecting her own target, she knows who to choose: Oliver Weeks, Marquess of Davenport—the most extravagant wastrel in all of London.
Known for his opulent lifestyle, Oliver isn't surprised by Harriet's confrontation. It's obvious Harriet longs for any way to take him down a notch. She says she'll help him find a bride, but he knows it's only because it gives her the excuse to chastise his indulgent ways.
Oliver has good reason for his flagrant overspending, but Harriet will hear nothing of it. So he has no choice but to teach the lady a lesson, even if it means risking his heart to the hard-headed and fiery woman.

The Nights are Hotter in Africa...

When Erica Knight arrives in Lebombo Game Reserve for her first African safari
she has no idea that her life is about to be changed forever. As an executive for

the reserve’s enigmatic owner, Jean-Luc de Graaf.
In the heart of a wild African landscape full of beauty and danger, Erica and
Jean-Luc both stubborn and passionate find themselves on opposite sides of an
escalating conflict. With the Reserve threatened by vicious poachers and
runaway fires, they are thrown together unable to contain the scorching
attraction between them.
Far away from the rat race of New York Erica feels the stirring of a different
drum, ancient and irresistible. But surrendering to the wild would mean she
would have to submit to the powerful attraction to Jean-Luc and she isn’t ready
to give up control just yet...

Throwback Thursday: Gobbolino the Witch's Cat by Ursula Moray Williams

One of my very earliest reading memories was this book. Or rather this story.
The version I read was included in one of those fortnightly/monthly subscription magazines. Each issue came with a magazine filled with serialised stories and accompanying tape cassette so very young readers could read along (including a ping at the end of every page so you knew when to turn over). My mum bought us the whole collection, but Gobbolino's story is the only I truly remember. And I loved it. I would fast forward the tapes to find the next instalment (I think it was split into chapters) I just new I couldn't wait til the next instalment to find out what had happened.

At one and twenty, Miss Kate Holden intends to become a governess, having

the devilish marquess that wears it all too well, she nearly ends up compromised.
Refusing to fall prey to Wesley’s skillful seduction, Kate decides to turn things
around on the rake. But the high-stakes game between them soon leads to her

Who do you turn to when the law is the problem?
Marisol hoped divorce was the key to a new life—one away from her crazy ex-
husband. Instead she’s working two jobs and struggling to make ends meet as
her problems escalate. Terrified and desperate for help—any help—she turns to
a stranger, a man her brother swore could help with just about any problem. The
answer to her problems is tall, dark, deadly and everything she’d once thought
she wanted in a man. But to him she’s a job. Nothing more.
No one should fight an impossible war alone.
When Ethan founded Counterstrike he expected a challenge but nothing could
have prepared him for Marisol. She’s smart, courageous, compassionate,
headstrong, and everything he’s ever wanted. But her troubles come with a price
tag he didn’t expect when he must face his own personal demons to keep her
safe.
