MIne was "Untie My Heart" by Judith Ivory.  Absolutely loved it! 

This is a victorian historical romance with refreshingly different characters.  What wonderful, quirky imperfect characters! I loved Emma, the plump reformed con artist as much as I loved Stuart, the stuttering viscount, son of an abusive father and "ugly" mother.   I absolutely fell in love with Stuart. For some reason, he reminded me a bit of Nicholas in MJ Putney's Thunder and Roses, another book I loved.

I got really bogged down in it, and never finished! I keep meaning to.

I'm really liking the book I'm currently reading, To Marry an Heiress by Lorraine Heath. It's much better than anything I've read by her previously. I may well keep it.

The Spymaster's Lady by Jonna Bourne. This is her 1st bokk, and I think she is going to be an exceptional talent.

Never Seduce a Scoundrel by Sabrina Jeffries - it had me rolling on the floor most of the way through the book. :)

I kept The Spymaster's Lady too.  I really enjoyed that book & think I'd read it again - IF I ever get through the TBR books I haven't read yet, that is:P

It's paranormal romance but that was Shifter with Knight, Leigh, Day and Kantra. All the stories were wonderful. :)

Sara,

I loved Born in Sin too.  A definite keeper.    Searched for Spymaster's Lady.  On my WL now (I'm #63 sigh!)  The really great ones usually have long WL's; I think because so many people keep them rather than circulating them.

Catch of the Day -- emailed the author to tell her how it made my day; she emailed back very quickly and chatted.  She's just lovely!  (Kristan Higgins).  It's not MC, whom I love too, but for fun and quick -- it stays here!

Claudia, I have a copy of Spymaster's Lady if you decide you want to borrow it.  I really liked it, so mine's a keeper too:P  I had to get it from half.com because I wasn't going to wait a gazillion years for a WL offer.

Stephanie, the other books in that series are terrific too.

My latest keeper is My Immortal - my apologies to the person I was gonna pass it on to. :-(

I'm going to jump into the middle of this discussion, *waving Private Arrangements by Sherry Thomas.*

And I just found out about Lynn Kurland, I think she's wonderful.  Can't wait for for the next books by these two authors.

Just finished The Wind and The Sea by Marsha Canham and I loved it.  I borrowed it from Kim (rubberducky) and so I guess I have to give it back.  LOL   Sooooo, I just ordered one for me and paid way too much.  :)

Sherron,

I'm intrigued about the Wind and the Sea, since I also love Marsha Canham.  Can you tell us about it and why you loved it so much?  I'm thinking I might have to hunt down a copy (after I get mount TBR under control, of course).
