I just got Aftershock by her - a little Harlequin Temptation title- and have read the first two chapters and love her writing style. I'd like to try more by her and hope you all can help and tell me your favorites by her so I can go hunt them down. Thanks!

Her firefighter series is great.  White Hot, Blue Flame and Seeing Red.

I love her, I really enjoyed her Sky High books, more so the first 2. These are my fav of hers

Smart and Sexy

Strong and Sexy

Out of this World

I haven't read all of hers yet, I am trying to get them all. I heard her new one is really good.

I liked Aussie Rules and Out of this World, as well as the firefighter series.

Out of this World was a good book.  A little weird, but good. 

I also liked Her Sexiest Mistake and The Trouble With Paradise.

Rose, she's an author I always generally buy because I haven't read anything by her I didn't like. I recommend Get A Clue.  It made me LOL at times. These three were also very good IMO:

Oh noooooooooooooooooo.....another author I've never read and everyone seems to like her so much. I went to her website and holy cow she has a huge backlist.  - I feel a glom coming on. Hold me back, hold me back......................

I liked Out of this World until the end. I usually like her books, just wish she wouldn't insist on adding a suspense subplot, however light, because they never work for me.

Oh yes the Blaze firefighter books were good too. 

I just added Instant Attraction to my WL.  I have several of her books in my TBR.  I need to get to them.

Double doo-doo......I just tried requesting the red/white/blue Shalvis books from the library but was denied because my  card expired on 2/03; can't do it online have to do it in person. Luckily I have an Eloisa James I'll be finishing up tomorrow so I can return it on Monday and renew then. Spose I should be grateful they didn't someone out to pick up the 3 books I already have.

I've only read Get a Clue,    But, I really enjoyed it.    It has a couple of really funny parts.    Laugh out loud funny, as I recall.   I love a little humor in my romances.    Because of this one, I got Out of this World.

Aussie Rules is next on my TBR pile. It's my first Jill Shalvis book. I've heard such good things about her, hope this book lives up to what I've heard!
