my first real boyfriend, and my first kiss. What can I say? It’s no wonder I

take karate lessons, learn how to shoot a bow and arrow and how to fence. Maybe
told someone they could understand you better by reading three books, which
would they be? Why?

out of time first!

so real and true.

Nicole, you definitely lead an exciting life.
When you learn to shoot arrows, you’ll have to teach me. And that “every little
bit adds up” advice is so true and encouraging. And Bloodlust? It sounds amazing.

forbidden love story? Thank you so much for swinging by to share your thoughts
and book with us.
Overview from Barnes & Noble…
hatred, six races struggle for supremacy.
Barbarian-Princess Ivy is unwilling to allow her father to provoke the other
races into war and forms an unlikely alliance with Lukor the goliath to save
her people from utter destruction. Unbeknownst to her, Lukor blames the
barbarians for murdering his sister and plans on sabotaging her goal.
Almost despite each other, they grow to respect one another on their journey to
decode secret messages from the trolls. But nothing Ivy can do will prevent the
war as her father is blinded by Bloodlust and incites it himself. Not even
killing him and becoming Barbaroness can stop the tide. And when Bloodlust
claims Ivy, forcing her to kill everyone in her path, she must make a choice to
destroy even Lukor, who she may have started to fall for, and him her in return.
