The Earl is Mine by Kieran Kramer

 Book Spotlight 
 the earl is mine
  By Kieran Kramer
 TBR Feb. 26, 2013

Handsome, charismatic, and on the verge of becoming a successful architect, Gregory Sherwood, Lord Westdale, could have just about any woman he wants. So why rush to marry? So far there’s been only one woman he’s considered his ideal match. But that was before she had a secret affair with his best friend…with the help of an unwitting accomplice named Lady Pippa Harrington.
Pippa may not have acted in her old friend Gregory’s best interests, but she’s always believed that the heart sets its own rules. This is why Pippa must escape her arranged marriage–fast–by fleeing to Paris, where she hopes to pursue her artistic passions. To do so, Pippa will need all the help she can get–from Gregory, the one man she isn’t sure she can trust…or resist….

Book Series YA

Book Series to Read
I have decided that there needs to be a list/post about book Series.  I have had many many people ask me what I've read/what to read next. 
I will start with YA Books....I have been seeing multiple posts about how people don't like or wont give YA a chance, I say if there is a subject you enjoy YA can be just as enjoyable as Adult books!

I have tried to get every novella and book for each series I have listed.  I also got quite a bit of my information off Goodreads and Amazon.  Therefore publication dates may be changed.  I also may have missed many series of YA books that are out there, this is mainly a list of YA series that I have read.  After I finish with my Adult series list(s) I have thoughts to make a YA list of books that I haven't read, but would like to.

  *~* (To read in order follow numbers of books and novellas example Nva 0.5 then Bk 1then Nva. 1.5 etc. If there is no number after a book, then it is a companion book can be read whenever.)*~*

*Nva. stands for Novella which is a short story within the universe of the books 
*TBR stands for to be released
*Companion books are books that take place in the universe, but don't have to be a story.

***I have also split them into categories, this is mostly my way to help tell what a book is about, this does not mean that the books are categorized this way in the publishing world.***
