Day #4 Birthday Bash Friday Forgot ABout Finds + Giveaway

May 21, 2010

Welcome To Day #4 Of JoJos 30 Day Birthday Bash. Today we have My Wonderful weekly post Friday Forgot About Finds. For those of you that do not know what this is, it is a weekly post where I bring a few Old books that many people may have forgotten about, back to the public eye. I tried to stick with books that have been published before the year 2000. Though some border a few years past 2000. So scroll down check out the books, then at the end I also have a giveaway! *wiggles brows*

Dark Desire
By: Elaine Moore

Victoria MacKay is seduced by the vampire Johann Nikolai in 16th century Scotland. When she emerges from their evil union, the clash of her vampire nature and the unbridled gifts of her Celtic bloodline make Victoria more than human, and more intimately bound to the living than the undead. For three centuries she is pursued across Europe, Africa and America by Nikolai, and through her adventures witnesses great changes in history while learning the great lessons of undying love and DARK DESIRE.

By: Suzanne Brockmann

Funny, charismatic, and one heck of a temptation, Preston Seaholm made a wickedly sexy hero as he rescued Molly Cassidy from tumbling off the roof! The pretty widow bewitched him with a smile, unaware the tanned sun god was Sunrise Key's mysterious tycoon—and one of the most eligible bachelors in the country. He needed help fending off unwanted advances, but once he convinced her to play along at pretending they were engaged, would he discover the pleasures of surrendering to her temptation?

Eden Burning
By: Elizabeth Lowell

Paradise calls to Chase Wilcox. A man of science fascinated by the rebirth of life in the wake of cataclysmic natural upheaval, he is drawn to the lush beauty of the island of Hawaii and the secrets it holds -- while escaping the destruction of his own personal world. Here where warm breezes caress the skin and vibrant colors assault the senses -- and where dangerous fires rage unseen beneath the earth's surface -- Chase plans to immerse himself in his work...and somehow heal and forget. The last thing he needs or wants is love.

But the island is home to many unexpected wonders, which is why Nicole Ballard could never leave it. A research assistant, an artist, and a dancer -- a tall, stunning redhead who goes by the stage name of Pele, the goddess of fire -- she, too, hides a secret pain, releasing her pent-up sensuality to the accompaniment of native drums before a mesmerized audience. Nicole has never met a man quite like Chase, strong, intense, and brilliant. And he, in turn, is fascinated by this remarkable woman who seems to be a breathtaking force of nature in her own right. Fate has cast them together, causing a chain reaction that neither imagined in their most secret dreams.

Joined on an important scientific project that carries them into the verdant heart of a tropical wonder land, Nicole and Chase will be forced to confront their own lingering inner darkness, while resisting a newly inflamed need to touch, to care. But in the shadows of Kilauea, all restraints will be broken, as emotions flow as hot and free as rivers of molten lava. And desire will erupt, as unpredictable and dangerous as the living volcano, transforming the very landscape of their lives -- a torrent that no power on earth can contain, a passion that bums like fire.

I am always on the lookout for "new" old books. I read as many older books, if not more, as I do new books.
