Also in meinem lezten Post habe ich von einem Schnäppchen berichtet. Undzwar habe ich sieben Bücher für ca.12 pounds gekauft. Das sind die Neuzugänge:
1.The Choice von Susan Lewis
Sometimes the nightmare can last forever… Nikki Grant has her whole life ahead of her when she discovers she’s pregnant. But she welcomes the news with joy – the baby will be a wonderful addition to the happy household she shares with the love her life, Spencer James, and three close friends. Nikki’s parents have a very different view of what the baby is going to mean to their daughter’s future. Deeply disapproving of Spencer and the friends Nikki has chosen, their frustrations reach breaking point when Nikki refuses to be controlled by them any more. After she storms out, a rift opens up between them that breaks their hearts, but they are all too proud to back down. Baby Zac arrives and is perfect in every way. And with Spencer’s career taking off they are ready to make the big move to London. Then suddenly events start to rush them down a very different road and nothing could have prepared them for where they find themselves. It is a frightening and alien place with Zac at the centre of it and Nikki desperately trying to hold onto her baby, her life, her dreams. And as they become evermore embroiled in a world they cannot escape, the love between Nikki and her son is put to the kind of test no parent should ever have to face…
2. The Mistress of Rome von Kate Quinn

Years later, a singer known as Athena betrays no hint of her troubled past. Catching the eye of the Emperor himself, she is swept into a world of decadence and depravity. But although Domitian fears betrayal from every side, he is unaware that the greatest threat lies next to him – a slave girl who has come to be called the Mistress of Rome…

4. Stolen von Lesley Pearse

To her regret, Dale hasn’t seen Lotte since leaving the ship months earlier … but the girl on the beach – although badly bruised – is indeed her much missed friend. Their reunion only marks the beginning of a dangerous tidal wave of secrets, lies and nightmares. Where has Lotte been? Who is the man who seems to want to kill her? And what has become of the baby she’s recently given birth to? Dale and Lotte must dig deep and find the strength to hold on against the odds if they are to rebuild their friendship and survive Lotte’s stolen – and deadly – past.
