Bookstore Cafe / Re: Did you Forget a Book Title?
« Last post by Ms_Humpty on 4 hours ago »
Hello Brains trust,  :smiley:

I am looking for a series where the Heroine lives and works in a lighthouse. I am pretty sure that it is a library and it is deemed a historic building.

 She got the job over someone else who expected to just walk in as she was a local born & bread etc. The local woman attempts to scare her off the job by saying that the lighthouse is haunted etc  and attempts to scare her off with various noises.
 
I think she also got in a set of rare books and one goes missing.

*I thought at first it was Jenn McKinlay's Library Lovers series but sadly it is not. I had it on my Laptop but it died and then I think I got the next in the series re found them put them on an external and sadly it is also dying.

Any ideas thoughts suggestions greatly appreciated..   :-*

The Substitue Bride - Margaret Pargeter -5 stars  >:(

This book has a plain jane and thats what enticed me to read it....It was horrible.As the name of the book suggests, the h is substituting for her cousin...

"'Well, no one,' he taunted, 'needs rose-coloured
spectacles in bed.'
His careless frankness was making her quiver and
bringing wild colour to her pale cheeks."
   This is just a sample of how the rest of the book will be.

In all the plain janes that i have read never have i come across such a jerk off. The stupidity of the h was also very frustrating. I wanted to slap both of them so hard and "bring wild color to their cheeks". And he didnt quit being a jerk till the last 10 pages when suddenly he realises that he loves his wife while the rest of the 230 pages he abused her both verbally and physically.

I dont know what made them love each other.Maybe it was when the H (finally) realised that his wife was a virgin and not the slut that everyone ( his own family ) making her to be. This book takes the whole mean hero thing a step too far. This is one sick book. Dont read it.
Thank you for sparing me the time I would have taken to read this book. :-*  I, too, don't like when the hero is so mean and abusive to the heroine.  It just makes me want to cry.  How can that be romantic!  If we want to read about a jerk abusing a woman, we can put the book (ereader) down and just look around us.

..."bring wild color to their cheeks" - hilarious!! :D

FanFiction Alley / Re: Twilight Fanfiction Non Canon, AU, e.g Bella/Jasper

I am hoping someone can help me find this Fanfiction I read about Jasper and Bella being mates. After her birthday, the Cullens leave except for Jasper. When he comes back to the house there is a note from Alice telling him not to find them; he basically shuts down. Bella comes to the house a few months/or year later,  destroys Edwards piano with a sledge hammer; finds Jasper in Alice's room laying down covered in dust, letter still in hand.  She cuts her self, gets a cup of blood for Jasper, uses a syringe to get it in his mouth.  Peter shows up, gets Jasper a human. He ist.v. protective over Bella in his feral state and won't talk.  Only talks when the Major is out....
