Gladly Beyond by Nichole Van
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, what a great story! I received a copy of Gladly Beyond for participation in the Ebooks for Review Program hosted by Inspired Kathy. Claire, Dante and one other art authenticator are invited to Florence, Italy to authenticate a drawing that might be Michaelangelo's work. The catch is that they are all competing to work for the owner at an amazing salary as a permanent authenticator. Unfortunately, Claire is being followed not only by her recent past but, also by a stalker. Claire is being haunted not only by the stalker, an unfortunate incident from her past but, also by her parents' past in the limelight.

Dante has a very interesting past and he also feels a huge amount of responsibility for his family as he and his twin provide major support for the family holdings through their family business.

Crowned for the Prince's Heir by Sharon Kendrick
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is unfortunate because Lisa is pregnant and Luc's marriage to a neighboring Princess who he has been engaged to for a very long time is about to happen when he learns of her pregnancy. Luc decides he needs to claim his child and is not aware that Lisa will not be dropping everything to run into his arms. What ensues is a serious clashing of two headstrong…

The Sway by Ruby Knight
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Sway was a great, action-packed novel with a bit of mystery and a lot of supernatural gifts. I received an e-Arc from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have a huge love of espionage and spy thrillers. The Sway starts out as a great YA spy thriller and morphs into a YA supernatural thriller. Julia, who has been in a special program for a black ops group under the government since she was 13 years old is given a strange assignment. She is assigned to get close to Cole and report on his activities so that the government can determine Cole's father's activities. She heads back to high school and is placed near Cole residentially and her job works out better than expected and in a way she never saw coming. His father Hank is more than he seems and it appears so is Cole and Julia.

Julia has no idea that she is also being watched by Cole and his group when she is in place for the mission. She is at a disadvantage because…
