Autumn in the Highlands (English Edition) von Spring Horton
I have read a number of books by Spring Horton by now and this one was by far my favourite. To me a book that can stir some sort of emotion in me is worth my time. For me to really love a book, however, I want it to make me both laugh and cry. And this book did.

I really liked how I slowly got to know the characters and even though it wasn't exactly a surprising turn of events, I thoroughly enjoyed witnessing the two guys fall in love with each other.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sky Pirate, 13. März 2014
First I guess I should say that pirate stories aren't really my cup of tea at all. I have trouble relating to the concept of attacking your enemies' ship and killing them because they have been mean to you in the past. However, this is a pirate story and when I decided to read it I knew this so it would be silly of me to now rate this book based on my general opinion of pirate stories. So I won't.

What makes sky pirate a special story is the fact that it manages to be both a typical pirate story and not your typical pirate story at the same time. And that is exactly why I think it is a good book.

The author took the rather macho concept of a pirate novel and added to… Mehr dazu
