Sounds good. I wanted to be an archaeologist when I was younger. I must be on a "dark" kick this week. My teasers are from Dark Companion by Marta Acosta and Darkness All Around by Doug Magee. Happy reading!

Like that teaser. The cover doesn't seem to go with the title, but I like it.

I read her War of the Roses series and loved it! Very strong female characters, and her words created vivid pictures in my mind. Didn't know she had a new release. Thanks Harvee.

Has all the makings of a great novel: romance, Vikings, an island and 800s.
My major is anthropology/archaeology. I loved my visit to Scotland. I even went to visit the Loch Ness Monster but Nessie did not show that day.

I have requested from my library and had to go through MNLINK and found it in two libraries in Minnesota so far. MNLINK lets me request any book from a Minnesota library.
