Monday Madness

Monday Madness is once a week and it is where I choose a cool or 'mad' word from a book. 

This week's mad word is...

present tense: jär/

1.    send a painful or damaging shock through (something esp. a part of the body).
2.    have an unpleasant, annoying, or disturbing effect.

Okay, so I'm sure everyone has seen this word. And on Google when I typed in 'define jarred' they gave me the present tense which is jar. And, no offense to jar, but jarred sounds cooler. Try it. Jar-red. It's a cool word. I love it. Now while this word is in a ton of books, I found it several times in Suddenly Royal, by Nichole Chase.



Samantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working toward a master’s degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it’s to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed.

Alex D’Lynsal is trying to keep his name clean. As crown prince of Lilaria, he’s had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women—especially women in the public eye. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She’s stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone’s front-page news.

While Sam tries to navigate the new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders.

I love this book. I'm not a huge princess/royalty fan in general, but I swooned over this book. It was awesome. I even loved the cover. The model nailed it. Or the photographer or cover designer or whatever. They nailed it. It just... works. I also here there's a second book in the point of view of Cathy. Can't wait for that!

Happy reading!

I love comments! So don't hesitate to share your thoughts. Leave your blog/website name and link so I can get back to you. And if you're a new follower, tell me. Note that this is an award-free zone. I loved getting awards and I was pleased you guys thought I was special, but I was nominated so many times and it took a lot of time to do the award posts, time that I don't have. So thanks, but no thanks.

Happy reading!
