Okay--I have a choice of 4 books to read next, but I don't know which one to start:

My  Sweet Folly by Laura Kinsale

Seize the Fire by Laura Kinsale

Soul of Fire by Sarah A. Hoyt

Noble Destiny by Katie MacAlister

 

Help me decide!

Haven't yet read My Sweet Folly but Seize the Fire is now my second favorite Kinsale next to Flowers from the Storm. It was Fabulous. The hero is incredibly complex as is the heroine. They both become transformed throughout the novel as individuals and as a couple. As seems to be the case with Kinsale - the heroine ultimately saves the hero but in Seize the Fire he most definitely also saves her. I highly recommend it - you won't be sorry!

Hmm...maybe I'll just close my eyes and point to one of the Kinsales. I'm pretty sure i can't go wrong with either of them!

With Kinsale books, it's almost like you can put them in a pile, point a bent stick at them like a divining rod & pick the one it points to:P  Well... all of them but The Hidden Heart, which is the most annoying *almost* good book I've ever read:P  And for what it's worth - I adored My Sweet Folly. 
Y'all need to consider reading some Penelope Williamson too.  She's the closest I've ever see at writing at the same level that Kinsale does.

I decided to read Seize the Fire--mainly because it was on the top of the pile of possible reading material. Didn't get very far with it last night but so far, so good :)

Kim - I have Passions of Emma and Heart of the West on TBR and just need to get to them. I loved Once in  a Blue Moon. I'm a bit intimidated by the idea of Passions of Emma as I am afraid I will be frustrated by the long wait for the romance between Shay and Emma. I know it is likely done very well but it sounds frustrating.
