The Forgotten Mountain - cover

After years spent in Wonderland, Alice Reeve learned the impossible was quite possible after all. She thought she left such fantastical realities behind when she finally returned to England.

Now Alice has become a member of the clandestine Collectors’ Society, and the impossible has found her again in the form of an elusive villain set on erasing entire worlds. As she and the rest of the Society race to bring this mysterious murderer to justice, the fight becomes painfully personal.

Lives are being lost. Loved ones are shattered or irrevocably altered. Each step closer Alice gets to the shadowy man she hunts, the more secrets she unravels, only to reveal chilling truths. If she wants to win this war and save millions of lives, Alice must once more embrace the impossible and make the unimaginable, imaginable.

Sometimes, the rabbit hole leads to terrifying places.

We believe Ugo L Duckworth, AKA the Ugly Duckling, would be a fantastic addition as an Agent to help The Collectors’ Society fight their next battle. He would be: a master at understanding personal motivations, sensitive, wicked smart, able to completely kick-ass and look smokin’ hot while doing it! We see a very bright future for Agent Duckworth within The Collectors’ Society.

25 days book boyfriends banner_edwardian script


The BFF’s are very excited to be a part of the 25 Days of Book Boyfriends, hosted by Readers Live a Thousand Lives, Lovin’ Los Libros, and Starbucks & Books Obsession. We have so many book boyfriends… fact I’m pretty sure you’ll see a blog post sometime in the future highlighting all of them! Though it was really hard to pick just one, for today’s post, we’ve settled on one of our very favorites from 2014. We present to you, Finn Van Brunt from The Collectors’ Society by Heather Lyons.



Name: Huckleberry Finn Van Brunt
Alias: Finn Van Brunt
Age: 28
Eye color: Blue-gray
Hair color: Golden brown
Height: 6’ 2”
Timeline: 1876/96TWA-TS

BFF K Loves The Collectors’ Society

It is one of my favorite books of all time and was the first 6-Star review on the BFF Book Blog. Click here read that review!

The Top 6 Reasons Finn is our Book Boyfriend

After searching for these quotes, I desperately want to read this book again. I’ve never highlighted so many passages in a book. I love it SO MUCH!

1. Finn is sweet! He’s kind, he’s caring, he wonderful.

“Finn Van Brunt has manners. He’s kind to children. I hate the tingling that spreads in the pit of my belly.”

2. He fiercely loves Alice!

“Finn says my name softly, like it’s a prayer or a plea.”

3. Finn protects Alice, but not in a smothering, doesn’t-think-she-can-take-care-of-herself, kind of way.

” ‘The nice thing about partners,’ he says just as softly, ‘is that two are always stronger than one.’ “

4. He makes us think impure thoughts about spending time in a closet. (BFF K fans herself!)

“Time blurs together until it’s meaningless, until the closet and clothes disappear around us. Everything in this moment is touch and sensation, and I’m drunk on it.”

5. Finn has a sarcastic, silly, teasing side to his personality.

” ‘Oh, I’m familiar with weapons, Finn.’  ‘Ladies and gentlemen,’ he sweeps a hand out, ‘may I present Alice, the master of understatement.’

6. He is dreamy.

“He’s beautiful. Handsome is probably a more dignified term, but the golden-brown hair, light blue-gray eyes, and tanned skin really do come across as more beautiful than anything else.”

A visit to Heather Lyon’s Pinterest Board for The Collectors’ Society will reveal her inspiration photo for Finn.

I like to call this pic the “Finnspiration”. (BFF K fans herself again!)
