On My Wishlist (10) Winter's Shadow and But I Love Him

Winter's Shadow
Author: M.J Hearle
Release Date: June 1, 2011
Summary from Goodreads

Blake Duchamp...

He's all that Winter Adams can think of. Ever since their fateful meeting at Pilgrim's Lament. Ever since he looked at her with those emerald eyes. Ever since he saved her life.

But Blake isn't all that he seems. There is a strangeness about him, something dark and otherworldly. Something dangerous. In his attic is a secret he would kill to defend, but Winter seems to have a special ability to make him forget his duty. And he is her only protection against the gathering darkness.

The only problem is, to protect Winter, Blake must risk exposing her to an even greater danger. Himself.


WHY I WANT IT? Did you read that summary? It sounds romantic and suspenseful and it gives so little away that I want to read it just to find out what it's about! 

 But I Love Him
Author: Amanda Grace
Released: May 8, 2011
Summary from Goodreads



Tonight was so much worse than anything before it. Tonight he didn't stop after the first slap.
At the beginning of senior year, Ann was a smiling, straight-A student and track star with friends and a future. Then she met a haunted young man named Connor. Only she can heal his emotional scars; only he could make her feel so loved — and needed. Ann can't recall the pivotal moment it all changed, when she surrendered everything to be with him, but by graduation, her life has become a dangerous high wire act. Just one mistake could trigger Connor's rage, a senseless storm of cruel words and violence damaging everything — and everyone — in its path.
This evocative slideshow of flashbacks reveals a heartbreaking story of love gone terribly wrong.

WHY I WANT IT? This book sounds so heartbreaking, if done right I think this could be an incredible book.
