Bout of Books 12 | My Goals

Bout of Books 

I signed up for this read-a-thon weeks ago via Twitter and I can't believe tomorrow it officially starts! Lately, I haven't been reading as much as I usually do, so I'm hoping this read-a-thon will help me read more!

My goal is to finish 4+ books and participate in 2 or more Bout of Books challenges. I'd like to finish the books listed below for sure and hopefully I'll also complete some of the books I'm already partway through. :)

Love Thy Neighbor?

After years of wandering, Daisy Johnson hopes to settle in Turnabout, Texas, open a restaurant, perhaps find a husband. Of course, she'd envisioned a man who actually likes her. Not someone who offers a marriage of convenience to avoid scandal.

Turnabout is just a temporary stop for newspaper reporter Everett Fulton. Thanks to one pesky connecting door and a local gossip, he's suddenly married, but his dreams of leaving haven't changed. What Daisy wants—home, family, tenderness—he can't provide. Yet big-city plans are starting to pale beside small-town warmth….

After years away, Alec Munroe has returned, a successful businessman who is snooping around her bookstore with an avaricious gleam in his eye. She’d like to tell him to leave, despite still being in love with him, but the secret she's kept all these years demands to be told.

Alec Munroe has been successful in all ways but one: he has never been able to escape his memories of Katrina Ross. When he discovers the secret she's kept from him, he's faced with hard decisions. Justice or the forgiveness God calls him to offer...

Can Alec and Katrina leave the past behind to embrace the promise of a love they have never forgotten?

Nicole Renard returns home to Galveston, Texas, to find her father deathly ill. Though she loves him, Nicole's father has always focused on what she's not. Not male. Not married. Not able to run Renard Shipping.

Vowing to find a suitable husband to give her father the heir he desires before it's too late, Nicole sets out with the Renard family's greatest treasure as her dowry: the highly coveted Lafitte Dagger. But her father's rivals come after the dagger, forcing a change in Nicole's plans.

After a boiler explosion aboard the Louisiana nearly took his life, Darius Thornton has been a man obsessed. He will do anything to stop even one more steamship disaster. Even if it means letting a female secretary into his secluded world.

Nicole is determined not to let her odd employer scare her off with his explosive experiments, yet when respect and mutual attraction grow between them, a new fear arises. How can she acquire an heir for her father when her heart belongs to another? And when her father's rivals discover her hiding place, will she have to choose between that love and her family's legacy?

It's your third wedding this year. You are livening up the dance floor with a stirring rendition of "YMCA." Suddenly, the moment comes that separates the crowd like black and white socks. The Slow Dance. This one's in a pair, this one's not in a pair.

You are not in a pair. You thought you would be married much sooner, but it hasn't worked out that way. "This is not the life I imagined," you whisper as you eat your wedding cake.

This book was written with you in mind. Kate Hurley doesn't offer a magic formula that will bring your spouse to you, nor does she ask you to be content with your "gift" of singleness. She gives you permission to grieve your unmet expectations while opening your heart and life to unforeseen possibilities.

Are you participating in Bout of Books? If so, what books are on your reading list?
