At that moment, there was a tap at the window. The girls grew quiet and all turned toward the window. It was nearing dusk and hard to see.

“Probably some creature,” Ruthie said casually.

Then there was a tap, tap, tapping sound again.

“Unless it knows how to make a rhythmic tapping sound, I don’t think it’s an animal. I’m going out there to see,” said Katie.

“Not a good idea!” Lucinda shouted after her.

By then Katie was down the hall and out the door. The warm night air hit her face. It felt good to get out of Lucinda’s room. It was closing in on her, especially after the strange attack on Anna.

Katie was deep in thought, when she heard a sound. A footstep? She spun around to see Drew standing there. “Oh, I didn’t mean to startle you, Miss Kathryn. You did say you were staying at the boardinghouse and I thought I’d come to see if you are comfortable. If you have everything you need.”

That’s a good line, Katie thought. He was so handsome in the moonlight she could have stayed in that spot forever. Drew walked over to her. “I have never seen anyone as beautiful as you.”

“Lights out!”  Mrs. Johansson called in the distance.

Katie couldn’t help it. It was her dream after all. She fell into Drew’s arms and kissed him. He kissed her back. They seemed to melt into each other as one. Right then and there Katie wished that it was not a dream and that it would never end.

Cand te apuca lenea, ce sa mai postezi?

Suntem in 16 septmbrie, am inceput si scoala, si mie inca nu imi vine sa cred ca timpul a zburat atat de repede. Presupun ca ati „auzit” ca am fost iar plecata, de data asta la Rosia, jud. Bihor, unde am participat la Congresul National de Speologie editia a XLI- a. E  prima data cand particip, atat la organizare cat si la program. O sa revin ceva mai tarziu cu alte povestioare si poze, pana atunci va las pe mana Speosportului: http://speosport.ro/, iar eu incerc sa ma pregatesc de scoala, prima ora am fizica si din cate am inteles nu o sa mai avem aceeasi profesoara, dansa e bolnava, ceva urat, nu stiu. Imi pare rau, sper sa se faca mai bine si nu mai rau.

Si tot astazi, 16 septambrie cineva face 32 de ani. Este vorba de unchiu’ Bebe, cel care mi-a facut cunostinta cu Speologia.

La multi ani, unchiu’ Bebe!!!

Inainte sa trag modemul din priza 😆 , va mai spun: Bafta!




A dark, romantic fantasy set against the backdrop of San Francisco devastated by the Great Quake

It is the dawn of a new century in San Francisco and Delia Martin is a wealthy young woman whose life appears ideal. But a dark secret colors her life, for Delia’s most loyal companions are ghosts, as she has been gifted (or some would say cursed) with an ability to peer across to the other side.

Since the great quake rocked her city in 1906, Delia has been haunted by an avalanche of the dead clamoring for her help. Delia flees to the other side of the continent, hoping to gain some peace. After several years in New York, Delia believes she is free…until one determined specter appears and she realizes that she must return to the City by the Bay in order to put this tortured soul to rest.

It will not be easy, as the ghost is only one of the many victims of a serial killer who was never caught. A killer who after thirty years is killing again.

And who is now aware of Delia’s existence.

Am încercat să pun mâna pe cât mai multe cărți posibile și să le citesc, cât mai am timp liber. Am reușit să pun mâna pe Delia’s Shadow de Jaime Lee Moyer și să citesc ceva din ea. Este mult mai bună decât m-am așteptat și abia aștept să încep să scriu o recenzie, sunt sigură că o să vă placă și vouă. După asta, mă găndeam sa mă apuc de ”Memoriile lui Sherlock”.

Cel mai probabil, o să postez la sfârșitul lunii septembrie, iar recenziile celorlalte carți în lunile următoare.

Voi ce ați mai citit? Ce cărți vreți să mai citiți?



Read now: You Are Mine

Serena knows a few simple things. She will always be owned by a warlock. She will never have freedom. She will always do what her warlock wishes, regardless of how inane, frivolous, or cruel it is. And if she doesn’t follow the rules, she will be tarnished. Spelled to be bald, inked, and barren for the rest of her life—worth less than the shadow she casts.

Then her ownership is won by a barbarian from another country. With the uncertainty that comes from belonging to a new warlock, Serena questions if being tarnished is really worse than being owned by a barbarian, and tempts fate by breaking the rules. When he looks the other way instead of punishing her, she discovers a new world. The more she ventures into the forbidden, the more she learns of love and a freedom just out of reach. Serena longs for both. But in a society where women are only ever property, hoping for more could be deadly.
