The Quest: Broken Wing

Kristie over at Ramblings on Romance has posted an amazing review on the book Broken Wing by Judith James. She gave it 6 out of 5 which certainly got my attention! She has also set forth a quest for fellow bloggers to get the word out about this wonderful book.

Here's the synopsis from Judith James' website:

Abandoned as a child and raised in a brothel, Gabriel St. Croix has never known tenderness, friendship or affection. Although fluent in sex, he knows nothing of love. Lost and alone inside a nightmare world, all he’s ever wanted was companionship and a place to belong. Hiding physical and emotional scars behind an icy fa├žade, his only relationship is with a young boy he has spent the last five years protecting from the brutal reality of their environment. But all that is about to change. The boy’s family has found him, and they are coming to take him home.

Sarah Munroe blames herself for her brother’s disappearance. When he’s located, safe and unharmed despite where he as been living. Sarah vows to help the man who rescued and protected him in any way she can. With loving patience she helps Gabriel face his demons and teaches him to trust in friendship and love. But when the past catches up with him, Gabriel must face it on his own.

Becoming a mercenary, pirate and a professional gambler, Gabriel travels to London, France, and the Barbary Coast in a desperate attempt to find Sarah again and all he knows of love. On the way, however, he will discover the most dangerous journey, and the greatest gamble of all, is within the darkest reaches of his own heart.

Now the book isn't due for release until November 1 but based on Kristie's review I've ordered it from Amazon and it's supposed to be shipping soon. Did I pay full price? Yep. Is this something I normally do? Heck no. Coupon queen here. Even when buying new books I either use my Borders coupons or buy from Target or Walmart for the 25% off. But...the review was so well written and Kristie's feelings about the book were right there for all to see it hooked me big time. I simply have to read this book asap!

To purchase Broken Wing:


  1. Wow!!! lol - being a supersaver when it comes to books myself - I am MOST impressed that you didn't use coupons - and now slightly scared that you won't end up thinking it was worth it *gulp*.
    But since I'm now half way through a reread - I'm not too worried about that *g*

  2. LOL ~ no worries Kristie. I've been reading your reviews for some time and we seem to like many of the same books. I'm sure I'll love it!
