Mailbox Monday

This is my first mailbox Monday! Mailbox Monday is hosted by the Printed Page. I have seen this on so many of the blogs I follow and I love reading about what everyone is recieving so I thought I would give it a try.

I have been patiently waiting for this book for 9 months. I read Michelle Beattie's debut book What a Pirate Desire in December and I LOVED it!!

Alicia Davidson thought her memory loss and scar were the result of a childhood fall. When she discovers the truth, and that she has a sister she doesn’t remember, Alicia will stop at nothing to fill in the missing pieces of her past. Her determination will pit her against a man who not only resents her, he awakens a flood of desires.
Blake Merritt knows who Alicia is and makes it clear he wants nothing to do with her or anyone bearing the Davidson name. Only when he finds Alicia stowed away on his ship does he concede to take her to her sister. His hope is that the faster he gets rid of her, the faster he’ll forget her. He hadn’t planned on loving her.
The trip to find Samantha is a rocky one filled with fiery emotions, the shocking confession of Blake’s anger toward the Davidsons, and a passion that runs hot as the Caribbean sun. And if that weren’t enough, they have a traitor on board. One who wields the power to once again take away everything Alicia holds dear. (description from the author's website.)

Covered with burn scars, having lost an eye and a thumb in a nearly fatal accident, Luke Morgan's days as a ladies' man are over. But his bitterness, far more than his injuries, threatens to tear apart his family and their business. Abby Stanford is a physical therapist on vacation in Florida. When she meets Luke, she understands everything he's going through. She finds herself powerfully attracted to him, damaged though he believes he is. Abby can look beyond his pain and anger to see the man he is inside, enabling Luke, too, to see himself as whole and desirable once again. (description from fantastic fiction.)

They paid no mind to society's prying eyes . . .The daughter of a wealthy bandit, Sophia Dawson once lost herself in the arms of Black Hawk, the most infamous pirate ever to command the high seas. But now, determined to put her sinful past behind her, she prepares to enter society as the bride of a well-born nobleman who knows nothing of her scandalous youth. All goes according to plan until her ex-lover - now a respectable sea captain but just as handsome and dangerous as ever - appears and once again tempts her with desire. From the moment he sees Sophia again, James Hawkins wants only one thing: Revenge. He'll see to it that the reckless beauty pays for abandoning their heated affair. And so begins a battle of wills that can end only in utter ruin . . . or wicked surrender . . . (description from fantastic fiction)

Then I discovered an Annie's Book Stop in Beverly, MA (very excited!!)......

WHO’D BEEN SLEEPING IN KASON RHODES’S BED?

The left fielder for the Richmond Rogues had returned from six weeks of spring training in Florida to find someone had moved into his mobile home. That person was presently in his shower. And no matter how sexy the squatter might be, Kason wanted her out. He had his trusty dobie, Cimarron; he didn’t need anyone else in his life. Not even a stubborn tomboy who roused all kinds of wild reactions in him, then soothed his soul with peace offerings of home-cooked meals and kindness. The bad boy of baseball was ready to play hardball if need be, but with Dayne Sheridan firmly planted between his sheets, he found himself. . . (description from author's website)

Macy Lockhart's life shattered in a moment with the news that her husband, Finn--serving in the military overseas--has been killed in the line of duty. Their ardent and devoted marriage is over, leaving Macy alone and directionless. But while she tries to sustain herself with memories of Finn, the quiet, strong man who made her and their small Texas ranch the center of his life, it is wealthy Wyatt Clark who slowly brings joy back into her life. Her love for Wyatt may be less romantic than the breathless passion she'd once shared with Finn, but she vows to cherish him, and their marriage is happy and solid as a rock. Until the day that Finn, miraculously spared from death, returns home to claim his bride...
How can a woman choose between the two men she loves? And how will she make the right choice--for herself and everyone involved?
(description from author's website)
