I should not have been allowed into Borders!!

Our local Borders started their liquidation sale on Friday, I decided to go in today after work. Boy oh Boy! Its a good thing it was busy and nothing was organized otherwise I would have found way more books that I wanted! As it was I decided to leave some behind :(  You want to see my haul?! 

I am going to say this is a partial IMM since it would definitely be too large for one post!!

Thats 19 books, most of them are off my wish list and were 20% off (tell me you could pass it up)

Highland Guardian (Daughters of the Glen #2) Synopsis: "Ian McCullough is neck-deep in his own trouble. A half-mortal descendant of Faeries, he's been a Guardian for more than six hundred years, but he's never encountered a woman like Sarah. Assigned to protect her, he finds the job tougher than he could have imagined. Oh, he can handle the stalker, and even the renegade Faeries trying to kidnap her. But falling in love means forsaking his role as Guardian -- which is some-thing he could never do.
Swallowing Darkness & Divine Disdemeanors are to replace the HC copies on my shelf.

Synposis of Exile: "Crown princess Aurelia is a survivor. She survived attempted assassination. She survived the king's rejection. She survived her mother's abandonment. And now, in exile, she must survive her kingdom-from hostile crowds to raw frontier to desert sands. But even as unknown assailants track Aurelia and expedition guide Robert, she knows her greatest risk is falling in love... "

Synopsis of Inferno: "After being thrown out the window of his luxury apartment, science fiction writer Allen Carpentier wakes to find himself at the gates of hell. Feeling he's landed in a great opportunity for a book, he attempts to follow Dante's road map. Determined to meet Satan himself, Carpentier treks through the Nine Layers of Hell led by Benito Mussolini, and encounters countless mental and physical tortures. As he struggles to escape, he's taken through new, puzzling, and outlandish versions of sin—recast for the present day."

And 1984, Grapes of Wrath, Great Gatsby and Lolita are all for the 2011 Challenge.

With all these great new books its going to be hard to focus on the ones I already have planned!!
But there is no denying the passion that exists between two souls fated to be together."

A Highlander of Her Own (#4) Synopsis: "TEXAS, PRESENT DAY. Ellie Denton's world has spiraled out of control. A strange new birthmark, animals talking to her, and her mother's ex-husband laying claim to the family ranch have her thinking life can't get more complicated. But Ellie doesn't know the birthmark's connection to her Faerie ancestors. Complicated takes on a whole new meaning with her innocent wish to find her true love.
SCOTLAND, 1304. Caden MacAlister has more trouble than he can handle. With his brother held for ransom and the laird missing, the last thing he needs is another problem. But the Fae have other plans. A mysterious woman shows up in his stables, sent by Faerie Magic to find her true love. Fighting his attraction, Caden insists she's meant for one of his brothers. With his history, he has no desire for a woman in his life -- especially a woman sent by the Fae.
Only the magic of the Fae can determine whether Ellie will find a Highlander of her own..."     

Highlander's Homecoming (#6) Synopsis: "SCOTLAND, PRESENT DAY. When Faerie Magic swept Robert MacQuarrie forward in time, modern medicine saved him from a fatal wound. But he also left behind an unfulfilled vow -- to protect his friend's young daughter, Isabella. Haunted by guilt for more than a decade, he leaps at the chance to go back and keep that vow. The magic of the Fae works in its own mysterious ways, however. Not only does his homecoming turn out to be twenty years after he left, but there's also that tricky matter of the fate he escaped before.
SCOTLAND, 1292. Isabella MacGahan has reluctantly chosen a lonely existence, scorned for her Faerie blood and uncon-trollable power. When she's caught in a conflict between clans, a pawn in the struggle for power and land, her only option is to trust a handsome stranger. One who swears he was charged with her safety a full twenty years before...although the deluded man seems little older than her.
No one is safe when Mortal schemes and Faerie magic push Robbie and Isabella to confront their worst fears. Will the magic demand the ultimate price from them both -- or will they find their true homecoming in each other's arms?"

Healing The Highlander (#7) Synopsis: "ANDREW MACALISTER longs for a cure to free him from the excruciating pain caused by an old wound, but when he rescues a drowning woman, he has no idea how much his life is about to change. All Drew knows is that this mysterious woman is hiding secrets—and that he’s never felt such a consuming desire before. Yet he cannot deny her request for help, even if it means bringing the detested English army to his Highland clan’s home.
LEAH NOBLE MCQUARRIE still harbors a deep hatred of the Fae who tortured her eleven years ago, forcing her to escape back in time to the thirteenth century. A descendant of the Fae, Leah denies her heritage and her magical healing abilities. But the English army is holding her beloved adoptive grandfather captive, so Leah must seek help from the Fae—and the captivating man whose touch she craves.
Then Drew discovers Leah’s secrets, and he’s torn between old loyalties and trusting a woman who has the power to give him the future he’s sought—but could destroy his clan forever. . . ."  X2 one is a gift

One Magic Moment Synopsis: "Medieval studies scholar Tess Alexander is thrilled for the chance to live in a medieval castle. But then a trip to the village brings her face-to-face with the owner of the local garage, who looks a great deal like the man who married her sister...800 years in the past. She's determined to remain objective about magic and destiny, but she can't help wondering about that mysterious, sword-wielding mechanic."

A Knights Vow Synopsis: "Fantasies are made of knights in shining armor.

These are the men of our dreams. - and now you can find them in four breathtaking Medieval tales by today s most acclaimed writers of historical romance.."

Synopsis of Never After: "The bonds of love...The bonds of matrimony...The bonds between husband and wife...Let's face it-some bonds are made to be broken.

  2. It definitely balances! They are all books I would have bought eventually anyway and I just got them at a lower price now. I can't wait to see what you pick up!

    I am honestly considering going up to another town not to far away to their Borders too ;)

  3. Holy crap, girl! That's a lot of books! I couldn't be convinced at only 10% off to buy too many but I know those romances were 30% off at my store. Nice haul!

  4. Yea, it was a lot of books, a little more money for them than I probably should have paid, but most were in the 30% off sale. Total it worked out to be less tha $5 a book :D
