A Lady’s Prerogative ~ Above the Cut

Published June 3, 2018 by paulandpaulasbooks

A Lady Prerogative

I walked through a door marked Annabelle Anders some months back when Anders
started her trek down Regency Row. I decided to catch up and go along for the trip. I asked if I could be one of her BETA readers or possibly obtain an Arc- I was flat but needed a book fix. Oh yeah, she took pity on this reader and delivered the goods.

A Lady’s Prerogative is the second in her Ladies series.

In Nobody’s Lady, Natalie being sold to the highest bidder – A Duke, went along as a dutiful daughter but there was a problem – there was no zing, no zap, no tingle. No way!

She reappears in A Lady’s Prerogative, irrepressible as only a loving daughter, the youngest in a family of sons can be, while confined to the country manor in disgrace.

Trouble is her middle name as she chases after that special feeling needed, at least as far as she is concerned, for marriage.

This delightful tale is on pre-sale with delivery June 18, 2018

If you’ve not yet had a fix from this lady’s pen go on over to her Amazon page – grab one or two or the whole bunch; yes, she is that entertaining.

Breakthrough in explosive lawsuit against Monsanto

by Jon Rappoport

May 23, 2018

A San Francisco lawsuit against Monsanto and its weedkiller, Roundup, is moving forward. And it’s just received a new green light from the judge in the case.

Monsanto’s lawyers are bracing for a deep level of attack, which they were hoping to avoid. The judge has ruled the jury can hear testimony on this issue: Monsanto suppressed evidence that Roundup causes cancer.

Reporter Carey Gillam has the story (The Guardian, 5/22): “At the age of 46, DeWayne Johnson is not ready to die. But with cancer spread through most of his body, doctors say he probably has just months to live. Now Johnson, a husband and father of three in California, hopes to survive long enough to make Monsanto take the blame for his fate.”

“On 18 June, Johnson will become the first person to take…

A new series from Annabelle Anders – the LORD LOVE A LADY series – #1 NOBODY’S LADY

Nobody's Lady

I have been experimenting with new (to me and sometimes the general reader) authors.  I was fortunate several months back to bump into a kindred spirit reader and to my delight a new author. I’ve now read three of her stories and am eagerly awaiting anything else which she blesses her readers. I have been always open to BETA and ARC reading and was given a copy after I drooled on the chance of getting an advanced reader.

In NOBODY’S LADY, Michael and Lilly sizzle. This book is written in a fashion I usually eschew but the opening scene had grabbed me, foretelling a possible bumpy but hugely satisfying ride. Within several chapters with defined chapter headings, I was hooked.  

There were several times I wanted to weep at the injustice the Regency Age embraced but knowing that life is not a series of sunshine and butterflies without the darkness and the caterpillars to spotlight the pitfalls, I had to forge on along with characters I loved and wanted only the best.

I finished this book in one sitting or rather laying wide awake pushing the button on the Kindle until the last word written, was read. A sigh of thanks escaped as I turned off the light. If you have read any Anders I do not need to urge you;  if you have not, This book will make you a fan, too.

NOBODY’S LADY is on pre-sale for publication on May 2, 2018

#2 is on its way as well!

A Lady Prerogative


Titled rakes can practically get away with murder, but one tiny little misstep and a debutante is sent away to the country. Which is where Lady Natalie Spencer is stuck after jilting her betrothed.

Frustrated with her banishment, she’s finished being a good girl and ready to be a little naughty.

Luckily she has brothers, one of whom has brought home his delightfully gorgeous friend.

After recently inheriting an earldom, Garrett Castleton is determined to turn over a new leaf and shed the roguish lifestyle he adopted years ago.

His friend’s sister, no matter how enticing, is out-of-bounds. He has a run-down estate to manage and tenants to save from destitution.

Can love find a compromise between the two, or will their stubbornness get them into even more trouble?

#2 A Lady’s Prerogative in this enticing series will be on sale June 18, 2018

C.J. Pinard ~ ABOVE THE CUT ~ The Lunar EFFECT

Published February 12, 2018 by paulandpaulasbooks

The Lunar Effectthe lunar effect amazon

The Lunar EFFECT is the first in a new series (The Ayla St. John Chronicles Book 1) by one of my favorite authors, C.J. Pinard.  Her writing has engaged me for years and I am always happy to see when she has a new series in the making.

This paranormal story, in the beginning, has the feel of a mature coming of age YA, but it quickly turns into an evolving emotional paranormal series that the reader is not wanting to end.  I don’t do spoilers… Only point you in a direction that might take you into dark alleys and walking in the sunshine when it seems impossible.

I talked Pinard into gifting me The Lunar EFFECT book – I was and am for the most part flat broke.  She has her next book in this series, The Lunar CURSE out for pre-order and will be delivered on the 15th of February.

I indulged and bought it from Amazon but it can also be pre-ordered from Kobo
