The Delicious Viciousness of Jessica Knoll

INCENTIVE by Pam Godwin

After reading Deliver and Vanquish in one sitting, I became a bonafide Pam Godwin fan. Dark romance is the perfect blend of romance with a shocking, edgy twist.

The Power of Historical Young Adult Fiction

Spoilers! The future unrolled before her like a ribbon: sleeping with a chair hooked under the doorknob every night, beating carpets on the back steps, cooking the boarders’ breakfast, scrubbing the toilets, changing the linens, pouring fresh water in the basins, haggling with vendors at the Viktualienmarkt, fighting the nightmares about Papa, imagining his bloody…
