Now there's Solitaire. And Michael Holden.
I don't know what Solitaire are trying to do. And I don't care about Michael Holden. I really don't.
❉ I know nothing about this book. I just pick up this novel, because the cover is beautiful. Just by reading their synopsis, it looks like quite a nice story. I will save this book for next month to be read.
