Hey y’all…BOOK MAIL Post #2! 😉
I’ve got SO MUCH BOOK MAIL to share with you! I gotta say, after the month I’ve had, I absolutely needed this. 😊 If you can believe it, I won 1..2..3 contests in the last couple of weeks! I feel like the book fairies sprinkled sunshine on me!🌞
I thought at first that I’d squeeze all of my treasures in one post but you know, I think that each of the fantabulous authors that sent me these books should be thanked individually. So…I’ve got THREE BOOK MAIL posts coming at you over the next week!!💜
The marvelous SUANNE LAQUEUR gifted me this signed book of An Exaltation of Larks (Venery #1) plus an Amazon gift card! It matches my signed copy of A Charm of Finches which I won in a contest last year!!😊
An Exaltation of Larks
September 11, 1973: Eleven-year-old Alejandro Penda watches from his apartment window as Santiago, Chile falls to a military coup, destroying his family and his childhood. Arriving alone in America, he’s taken in by the Larks: a prominent family in the town of Guelisten. Though burdened by unresolved grief for his disappeared parents, he becomes fiercely loyal to the Larks, eventually marrying one of their daughters, Valerie.
September 11, 2001: Javier Landes watches from his apartment window as New York City falls to terrorism. As one of Manhattan’s top-paid male escorts, this professional lover has never lacked for company and is loyal only to himself. But in the wake of 9/11, Jav is named guardian for an orphaned nephew in Guelisten and must open his carefully-guarded heart to pain he’s long suppressed.
Alex, Valerie and Jav meet first in their twenties, with a sudden attraction each finds strange and compelling. When they meet again in their forties, they discover not only is their bond still strong, but their life experiences are strangely similar. All have been shaped by separate 9/11’s, and their unfinished business from the past will change everything they know about love, loyalty and friendship.
“Life has rules. You cannot come in the middle of the night and take what we agreed isn’t yours.”
Across three decades and two continents, Suanne Laqueur’s fifth novel explores the unpredictability of sexual attraction, how family ties are forged, torn and mended, and how love’s downfall can turn to exaltation.
Publisher’s Note: The Venery series is often classified as Romance on Goodreads. It is not Romance. An Exaltation of Larks and A Charm of Finches are Literary Fiction/Contemporary Fiction/LGBT Fiction.
I can’t wait to dive into this one!!! Have a great day y’all!💜
