Kim rocks!  She always recommends the good ones (IMO)  ;)

I agree completely -- Kim's book recommendations are always right on.  If you like Pale Moon Rider, you will love The Last Arrow, a medieval based on the Robin Hood legend. 


I'm currently reading another of Kim's recommendations "What a Scoundrel Wants" by Carrie Lofty.  Despite the fact that I'm not usually fond of "tortured heroines,"  I find myself loving this book nearly as much as Marsha Canham's medieval series.  Decent writing and a very engaging story. 


Kim,

You should seriously start your own reviews website.  I'd be one of your first subscribers.

I would also subscribe.  Kim and Willa and the Mary's (as I call them)  have been giving me the best recs on romances for a year now!

Lol.  I have a fan base:P  In spite of my distaste for them cheatin' heroes, I like to think that my taste in historicals is pretty mainstream.  My rule of thumb is that if I can play it on my mental movie screen & I didn't have to roll my eyes once or twice, it's all good:P

Oh - and I have 73 book reviews posted here, which I put up there for you guys - self-sacrificing person that I am:P  One of the hardest things about being a romance reader is separating the keepers from the crapola, and I know I appreciate any help I can get.

Who was it that recommended "Broken Wing" in a thread on damaged/abused heroes sometime back?  I discovered that my library had it and checked it out.  That was a good read.  A little disturbing but still engrossing.  James did an excellent job of writing a very tortured hero.

I loved Broken Wing, except for the lousy cover picture! ;(      I swapped my copy and now have it on my wish list.  I ended up buying the only other book that this author wrote (at least using this name) but haven't read it yet.   I ended up swapping for a lot of desert books because of Broken Wing.  I actually loved that part of the novel.

Broken Wing is really good, just wordy IMO.  But I think a lot of people who enjoy more epic stories really loved it.  I passed my copy along & didn't keep it, but I didn't think I could read something that long again & it's still somewhat rare here, so I thought it would be nice to put another copy into circulation.  I think I bought it on half.com & it wasn't expensive or anything.  Her second one wasn't as good, but I did enjoy it.  I just wish she'd take a slightly more minimalist approach to writing:P
