His Bought Fiancée (Wedded to the Sheikh Book 1) by Holly Rayner
His Bought Fiancée - Holly Rayner

 

Rayner chose to take the obvious route to romance. His Bought Fiancee brings a dash of fairytale to reality when a damsel in need becomes a princess indeed. Alyssa gets more than she bargained for when she tries to deceive. Standing in the shadows of heartache puts her in the right position for a surprising love story. Ali and Alyssa began as a means to an end. Will that end be happily ever after?

Kid Corner – Review: I’ll Wait, Mr. Panda by Steve Antony
I'll Wait, Mr. Panda - Steve Antony

 

I’ll Wait, Mr. Panda
by Steve Antony

 

Print Length: 32 pages
Publisher: Scholastic Press (October 25, 2016)
Publication Date: October 25, 2016
Sold by: Scholastic Trade Publisher
Language: English

Mr. Panda from Steve Antony’s bestselling, funny manners book Please, Mr. Panda is back!

 

This time, Mr. Panda’s black-and-white animal friends are curious what he’s making, but only one has the patience to stick around. An alpaca, an aardvark, rabbits, and a bird all wind up missing out. It’s the penguin who declares, “I’ll wait, Mr. Panda.” The penguin is rewarded with a big SURPRISE: a giant doughnut!

 

I’ll Wait, Mr. Panda is a graphic, kid-friendly way of teaching the value of patience and the importance of saying “thank you.”

 

 

AMAZON

 

 

When the book fair came to my sons school. I let him pick out any one book and I’ll Wait, Mr. Panda was his pick. He loves this Panda book. We read it several times a week, which is great. That’s what you want when you get a book. One you will enjoy over and over again.

 

I like this Panda book; because it’s all about teaching patience and politeness. The Panda expects patience, but is often disappointed; yet in the end he is generous to the patient penguin. The Panda does seem gruff, but I still feel this is a nice story to read to young kids (preschool/kindergartners) and the illustrations are cute.

Bought By The Sheikh Next Door - A Small Town Sweet Romance (Small Town Sheikhs Book 3)
Bought By The Sheikh Next Door - A Small Town Sweet Romance (Small Town Sheikhs Book 3) - Holly Rayner Kelsie may be naive, but she's no pushover. Those skills come in handy when she meets her new next door neighbor. Masoud has an agenda and he intends to see it through. Let the scrimmage begin. Raynor takes the fantasy of love and turns it into a realistic, sweet and topsy turvy rollercoaster ride. Bought by the Sheikh Next Door is a savory treat for the senses.

Tangling with a White Wolf—Best Christmas Ever, or Real Trouble?

 

Romance writer Candice Mayfair never missed a deadline in her life—until an accidental bite from a werewolf puppy turns her into an Arctic wolf shifter. She's forced to isolate herself in the wilderness to cope with her unpredictable shifting while she works on her deadlines. After all, for Candice, Christmas is just another day.

 

Enter private investigator Owen Nottingham, a wolf shifter hired to find Candice so she can collect her inheritance. They have a real problem: she must arrive home in human form, and that's not happening during the full moon. Besides, Owen has a new mission: to convince the pretty she-wolf her best move is to join his pack in time for Christmas...and to prove he's the only wolf for her.

Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas is book two in the White Wolf series by Terry Spear. It’s part of her bigger series Heart of the Wolf.

 

The characters featured in Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas I remember reading about them in Legend of the White Wolf and of corse they popped up again in another installment in the series, so I have some familiarity with them.

 

This novel was on ok read. It didn’t wow me or pull me into it. Everything was simple and happens very quickly. The major setup happens in the fist chapter, making it feel rushed. The tone of the book is light. Only touching upon things that should have more importance. For example; the introduction to our heroine and hero, is rushed. We don’t get much depth for the characters. Which made me not fall for them or be invested in them. They where just their.

 

The romance between Candice and Owen has just a little spice and sweetness. The sweetness was just a little too sweet and so the descriptions got to be a bit repetitive and straightforward.

 

As for the world building. I’ve always had trouble understanding it. Reading in order would be best, but even then I’m still confused. At the start of the series the world doesn’t know about shifters. They also live very very long lives, but then things kinda change on how long they live, but they are still in hiding from humans. I have always felt like the author wasn’t sure on what direction she wanted to go. Things kinda change suddenly on the life span for the shifters and we still don’t know why this is.

 

After reading Dreaming of a White Wolf Christmas I’m kinda questioning what I saw in Ms. Spear’s wolf series. From what I remember in the earlier books they use to have more depth to the characters and more action, suspense, a dilemma they had to over come, a bad person after them, or some kind of mystery to solve, so that things actually felt like something was going on, but now it feels blasé. From now on if I do pick up Ms. Spear’s I’ll be grabbing the books from my library instead of purchasing. This series and author have lost their appeal to me and I no longer have a big interest in the writing.

 

Rated: 3 Stars
