I started with Conor's Way, which I will never part with lol, followed by And Then He Kissed Her and just finished His Every Kiss last night. She is so great! I have Guilty Pleasures, The Marriage Bed and With Seduction in Mind on my TBR. I'm thinking of reading The Marriage Bed next which alot of people apparently don't like because the story involves infidelity. Anyone else a LLG fan?

I am a big of hers and have read and liked all of her stories.

I think she is a good writer but I am not a fan.

I am a fan of Conor's Way, And Then He Kissed Her, and Guilty Pleasures. And Then He Kissed Her and Guilty Pleasures are keepers for me, and I recently re-read them to find that they are still worthy of keeper status. I couldn't get over the distasteful storyline in The Marriage Bed (especially the ending!), and so I really didn't enjoy that one. Her later ones were okay, but I have kind of stopped reading her new releases (did not read the last one).

The Marriage Bed was great & the infidelity didn't put me off.  I love LLG.  I'm wishing I could beg, borrow or steal a copy of Conor's way!

Sorry Claudia - can't help you with Conor's Way I can't part with it! Finished THe Marriage Bed and thought it was wonderful. I also wasn't put off by the infidelity. The story was heartwrenching and really can't be taken out of context. Mistresses were normal for that time period - marriages for titles and wealth, not for love. I really liked the book and am looking forward to Guilty Pleasures. I think I'll enjoy Daphne and Anthony's story.

Managed to get a copy of Conor's Way through interlibrary loan & just finished it.  It was good, but not as good as ATHKH or TMB, IMO.

I love Interlibrary loan! I just discovered it this past year - my library was charging $1.50 per book but right now they're doing it free but charge $1 per day late fee and some are due pretty quickly (like less than 2 weeks from the time the library notifies me) great way to get books though!

Claudia, it didn't seem that great to me either. Funny how that happens sometimes. I also got it through ILL and have felt no need to own my copy.
