I won an Ebay auction right before Christmas for 4 Erin McCarthy books.  She forgot to mail them until last week. So she added an extra book and refunded my shipping. Then I got Mouth to Mouth as a WL book.  They all came today. I don't know where to begin. I'm thinking with The Pregnancy Test.

You Don't Know Jack

The Pregnancy Test,

Smart Mouth

Houston We Have a Problem

Heiress for Hire

Mouth to Mouth

I can have my own EM marathon if I want too.  If anyone happens to have more than one of these on their WL, let me know and I'll read those first and post them to you if I can.

I've read all but two of those:  Smart Mouth, and Pregnancy Test.   I recall really liking them all.   Especially Houston:,..and well, all the others!

Not home yet.  He'll be home around the 9th of Feb. 

ETA:  Heroine's bfriend dumps her when she gets pregnant.  She sells her business to get a job with health insurance.  Hero is over worked, very picky and goes through assistants like crazy.  She gets a job as his assistant but doesn't tell him she's preggers-she's afraid she wouldn't get hired.  He's instantly attracted to her but he's a workaholic.

Wow, Mary!  I've read Heiress for Hire and You Don't Know Jack and really enjoyed both of those.  I wasn't sure I was going to like Heiress for Hire (since the heroine is a spoiled rich girl type) but I ended up really like the book a lot.  I'm sure you'll have a good read no matter which you choose!

Hmm, I liked them all, I think I would go with Houston first, just because it was really fun to read, I would then move on to mouth to mouth, those vary the pace a little. but Pregnancy test is pretty good too, not as racy as some of the others, but humorous definitely.

Well I'm about half-way through Pregnancy.  I thought that first love scene was a bit racy. Not Lora Leigh racy but much more graphic than the Penny McCall book I just read.   I would really love to finish it but I have to be up and ready to babysit at 6am.  And Miss Mary is mighty cranky if she doesn't get at least 7 hrs. 

 

Well in a week or 2 my house will be set a-BLAZE since I had 3 Blaze WL books get offered to me today.  All from different people.  I almost bought them the other day but I have all these credits. I didn't think I'd get them so fast.  It would be funny if they all arrive on the same day. Those Blaze books are addicting.

I love Erin McCarthy, but I think my favorite so far is Mouth to Mouth.

I was wondering if anyone knows how many books follow the Cuttersville (haunted town) storyline? I know Heiress for hire takes place there as well as date from the other side..but I thought i had seen 1 or 2 other books that took place there. They dont seem to be printed as a series so i am thinking they dont have to be read in any order like her VEGAS books.

and has anyone read the vampire vegas books I believe the 4th one just came out?

Ok. 2 down (Pregnancy Test and Mouth to Mouth) and 3 to go.  I started You Don 't Know Jack tonight. I didn't realize it's the sequel to Pregnancy or I would have read it before Mouth to Mouth.

The first 2 were so good I read them in a day each.  My house is getting so messy because I'm reading so much. At least the kids are fed and getting to school on time.

Susanna, I loved Housten We Have a Problem, it was so cute.

I have all of the vampite series and I loved them too.

'mornin' everyone! it's raining here and where I'm headed..guess I'll have a long drive in the rain all day :-( plus havea  few errands to run before I can leave town...

read some more in 'dead men don't get the munchies' last night but got tired and cold..Ilike the room cold but to read I had to have my hands/arms out from under the covers and it wasn't working too well! I'm about halfway or ab it more than halfway through with it. gonna pack up some quilting projects and my clothes and of course some books and the girls and their food for the trip in a ittle bit..hoping the rain will slack off!

havning trouble narrowing the book selection down though! my usual problem..dont' know what I'll be in the mood for and the ones i think I want to read I can't find offhand!

Susanna I think you got the wrong thread.  This isn't the What we're reading thread. 

I know what you mean about the cold while reading.  I don't like the heat up too high either than it gets sweltering up stairs or if you're moving around. But my hands are always freezing when I read.  I bought a thick wrapper and I use that when I read but it doesn't solve the cold hands problem.

The other book based in Cuttersville is Date with the Other Side.  Technically it should be read before Heiress for Hire since the main characters are introduced in it.   You definitely could read read Date after Heiress, but you'll know the outcome since you are updated on the main characters from Date in Heiress.

I'm reading her vampire series now.  I like it, but it's not something I'd keep
