Gifts that last

For the past couple of years, I've been making donations as part of my Christmas gifts to family members. The donations are earmarked for livestock or medical and/or teaching supplies, and there are a variety of price ranges, from stocking stuffers to major structures and materials. This year, I bought pigs, chickens, a mosquito net and vitamin A via Christian Blind Mission International.

And in other happy holiday news, when I checked what I've purchased against the Uber Gift List, I discovered I was almost done the shopping! Yeah! Now if only Road and Track's website would let me order a subscription...

Out this month:

Lady Elizabeth d'Averette chafes at the restrictions of a noblewoman's life, and her yearning for adventure seems to be coming true when she meets the remarkably handsome Sir Oliver de Leslille. But Sir Oliver is no true knight, and the handsome Irishman has other secrets, too. Soon Lizette finds herself embroiled in a rescue, as well as the chance to stop a treasonous conspiracy and protect her own family from men out to use them for their own evil schemes.

The Irishman who comes to Lizette's aid may be more honorable than many a knight, but he's still an outlaw. When they fulfill their mission to save his brother, her family, and the kingdom, they'll have to part...or will love -- and a clever thief and determined young woman -- find a way?

"Moore's medieval starts on an exciting note and maintains that sensation over the course of the whole book. She's created a great hero and heroine who take on a vile, well-written villain, and the love scenes, even though they're mild, add a great deal to the story."
