Highland Hero
by Amanda Scott

LADY IN DISGUISE Lady Marsi Cargill refuses to marry a man who wants her land rather than her love. To escape her arranged betrothal, she disguises her noble lineage and accompanies her young cousin–the future King of Scots–on a secret journey across the Highlands. Their guide is a mysterious knight known only as Hawk. Heat flares between the beautiful maid and the brooding warrior, but when Marsi’s true identity is revealed, Hawk’s desire gives way to fury…

KNIGHT AT THE READY Summoned by the King to guard his son, Sir Ivor “Hawk” Mackintosh now has two royals to protect. This daring, willful woman has invaded Hawk’s every thought, and laid siege to his heart. Soon the solitary soldier is yearning for a life with Marsi at his side and in his bed. But as their passion grows, so too does the danger surrounding them. Powerful enemies watch their every move, and to survive, Hawk and Marsi must fight for Scotland’s future-as well as their own new-found love.

Lolita
by Vladimir Nabokov
performed by Jeremy Irons

Awe and exhilaration — along with heartbreak and mordant wit — abound in Lolita, Nabokov’s most famous and controversial novel, which tells the story of the aging Humbert Humbert’s obsessive, devouring, and doomed passion for the nymphet Dolores Haze. Lolita is also the story of a hypercivilized European colliding with the cheerful barbarism of postwar America. Most of all, it is a meditation on love—love as outrage and hallucination, madness and transformation.

I plan to read/listen to…

  2. Guess I'd better add The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer to my reading list. Everyone is talking about it. I like to tell people that Lolita is the most beautiful, depraved book I've ever read. What do you think?AnneMy Head is Full of Books
