Found – The Andersen Saga (The Andersens Book 4) by Jacie Middlemann

Claire Andersen Slavik was exactly where she needed to be. The last couple of years had been good ones even if at times filled with difficult moments. She had moved in with her mother when it was obvious she was needed. And never had a single regret for doing so. There had been days filled with joy and others with heartbreak. Now her mother was gone and the world she’d known had once again shifted out of balance. Claire was determined to take this time like a stolen moment to come to grips with the change in her life the loss of her mother had made. It didn’t matter that her kids called almost every day. She understood. But she needed this time away. The quiet and the peace she’d found in this little heaven on earth allowed her…forced her to face this new void in her life honestly. Little did she know her peace and quiet was about to be disrupted. Her solitude on the brink of collapse.Patrick Andersen had a lot to think about as he drove through the mountains of Arkansas. There was even more floating around in his mind that he wanted to say to his sister Claire now that he and his brother knew where she was. But just as important was everything he wanted to find out from her. He believed she had the answers to many if not most of the questions that had surfaced in the weeks since their mother’s death. Not for the first time he wondered grimly if some of those answers was why she’d taken off so suddenly as she had.Will the youngest of Livia Andersen’s grown children find the tranquility she seeks in the mountains of Arkansas? Can she make her brother understand the reasons for the choices she’d made and the secrets she’d kept? Will the place that brought their family so much joy remind them of the strong foundation from where they came…and the possibilities they have only to reach for?The Andersen Saga is a story of family. It is a story about joy and loss, hope and sorrow, betrayal and regrets, unconditional forgiveness, high expectations, and unwavering loyalty. It reminds that at the heart of who we are is the family we come from, the family who stands behind and beside us and at times against us. And who we become isn’t just a result of those still with us but those too that we’ve lost along the way. It is about the twists and turns every family deals with, the conflicts from within, and the never ending desire for acceptance and respect.Found is the fourth book in the ongoing Andersen Family Saga. Other books in the Andersen Family Saga include Betrayal, Resolute, Broken, Choices, and Regrets.The Andersen Family Saga is a series of novellas, classified by Amazon as Short Reads.

The Mountain Man’s Virgin by A.J. Wynter

Waking up in a cabin next to the bearded mountain man was a shock, and let’s face it, a little bit scary. What was scarier though, was how good I felt when I was with him. I have been saving myself for the right moment, not necessarily my wedding night, and I can’t help but wonder if the right moment is in front of me, smelling like cedar, musk, and woodstove.MickTalk about irony: a sex addict trapped in a cabin with a virgin. But for some reason, the protector in me is overriding the raw primal animal lurking inside of me.There are two reasons why I won’t sleep with Lucy: the first, and obvious one, I mean, she’s engaged, although that never would’ve stopped me before; the second, I’ve made a vow to myself, to stay away from women. And now I have a third, I am falling for her.When Mick finds out the shocking truth about Lucy’s fiancé, will he be able to get to her in time to save her?**The mountain man’s virgin is an over the top, trope after trope filled love story that could never ever happen in real life, even if we wish that it could.

Swann in Love by Marcel Proust

The latest translation of Marcel Proust’s classic novel Un amour de Swann

From the text:
But at the already somewhat disillusioned age Swann was approaching and where one knows to be content at being in love simply for the pleasure of it, without demanding too much in return, this coming together of two hearts, if it’s no longer, as it was in one’s youth, the goal that love, by necessity, tends towards, it has nevertheless stayed tied to one’s love by such a strong association of ideas that if it presents itself first it can itself become the cause. At an earlier age, one dreamt of possessing the heart of the woman he loves; later in life, feeling he has already come to possess one’s heart could be enough to provoke his love. So at an age where it would seem – for in love we search above all for a subjective pleasure – that the part played by our tastes in assessing another’s beauty would have become the determining factor in our love, a love can be born, a love of the most physical kind even, without there having been any initial foundation of desire. At this stage in our life we have been touched by love more than once; it no longer evolves on its own, following its unknown, fatal laws before our passive and astonished hearts. We come to its aid; calling on our memories, yielding to suggestion, we act it out. In recognizing one of its symptoms, we recall, we recreate the others. As we possess its song, engraved on our heart in its entirety, we need only for a woman to provide the opening strands, filled with the admiration we feel at recognizing another’s beauty, and we know what comes next. And if she starts in the middle, at the part where our two hearts come together, where we talk of existing each only for the other, we know this tune well enough that we can at once join our partner in the passage where she awaits us.
