I didn't write the name of the books or author down and now I can't remember them.  I thought one of the titles was You've Got Male but when I looked it up here I couldn't find it even under All books.  I searched just Male and couldn't find it either-of course that pulled up just too many to scroll through.  Also I'd like to know if I need to read them in order.

All of the titles have Male in the title somewhere.  I looked at 2 of them and they had a blond woman on the cover with a guy. They're romantic suspsense. I'm not sure if it's a continuing series w/the same female heroine or just a series and they used the same woman on the cover. (I have some Cherry Adair TFLAC books and a few of them look like they just used the same couple on them).

I also have one of the books on my bookshelf  - Express Male -  by Elizabeth Bevarly.  I think there are 3 books in the series - You've Got Male, Express Male, and Overnight Male.  I have only read the one though!

Yep it looks like those.  I guess I didn't recognize You've Got Male because the cover is so different from the others but I see on Amazon that the cover w/the couple on it is a rerelease.

Are they any good?  Do they have to be read in order or are the titles just a theme she uses?

Mary, I have those books and though I've only gotten around to reading one (You've Got Male), I liked it enough to buy the others and a few more by her.  I got caught by that evil  Re-Release with a New Cover ploy and bought the same book twice (You've Got Male) because I didn't pay attention to the title.  :-(

I only read the one, but I did enjoy it!  Ididn't realize this was a series, so I may get the others now.

DAwn I have done that.  I had 2 copies of Surrender My Love by Johanna Lindsay.  I had posted one before I read it because there were over 100 posted already. I figured it could work it's way up the FIFO line.  I didn't notice I had the 2nd one until I got a BOB Offer for the 1st. I dug it out so I could speed read it and found the 2nd, which happened to be unpostable. 

I order books in deals and then forget which freebies I'm getting and end up buying them at the thrift store or the UBS. 

You have to watch Janet Evanovich, Nora Roberts and Catherine Coulter books. They've been renaming them and reissuing them.

Ok I just found 2 of them at the thrift store for .25/each. I couldn't pass that up even though MT TBR is topping 400 now.  I'm turning into one of those people with little book stacks around their office.
