In My Mailbox (1)

In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren to mention any books received during the week.

This week I received four ARCs for review from publishers:


The Oracle of Dating by Allison van Diepen

Description from publisher:

"No one at Kayla’s school knows she’s the famous Oracle of Dating—the anonymous queen of dating advice, given through her own Web site. Kayla doesn’t even have a boyfriend. Two relationship disasters were enough to make her focus on everyone else’s love life. But then her advice backfires on her own best friend. And Kayla starts to seriously obsess about Jared Stewart—the very cute, very mysterious new guy in school. Suddenly, the teen queen of advice needs her own oracle of dating--and she knows just where to find one..."

The Promise by Chandra Sparks Taylor

Description from publisher:

"Since she broke up with hot basketball player Allen Benson, Courtland Murphy has been the subject of a million rumors. The fallout from their relationship convinced Courtland that waiting to have sex is the right decision. But the drama’s not over, especially with her father acting strangely and Allen and his teammates out to make her life hell. All except Aidan Calhoun, the new star player who’s just moved from Atlanta. Aidan supports her involvement in the upcoming purity ball, and Courtland’s falling fast. But can she trust her feelings for him when people may not be what they seem?"

The Raven Saint by Marylu Tyndall

Description from publisher:

"Join bestselling author M. L. Tyndall for another seafaring historical full of romance, intrigue, action, and adventure. Grace Westcott has piously served God her whole life. Captain Rafe Dubois cannot pass up the opportunity to earn more gold toward the hospital he’s building for the poor by kidnapping Admiral Westcott’s youngest daughter. But when the missionary and the mercenary meet, it’s full-sail-ahead into tumultuous waters! Find out what happens when a bitter mercenary who’s sworn off God falls in love with a pious woman determined to change him."

Angel's Den by Jamie Carie

Description from publisher:

"Award-winning author Jamie Carie pens her fifth historical Christian romance novel. This time, the story takes place in 1808 during the time of the Lewis and Clark expedition. The story follows Emma, the daughter of a prominent St. Louis businessman, who meets and marries Eric Montclaire, the one they call "the most hansome man west of the Appalachians." She believes in the promises Eric makes, but quickly learns the angelic face is only a mask that hides a monstrous soul capable of control, violence and event murder."

  9. You got some great books this week. I can't wait to hear what you think of them!

    Thanks for stopping by and following my blog :) The library where I work is small enough that I get to work with both children and teens (we call it Youth Services), but I'm hoping that once I'm done with my MLS that the other Youth Services librarian and I will be able to each take one age group. I would love to focus on working with Teens :)
