Any Lynn Kurland fans out there?  My aunt raves about her books, and I have several in the TBR mountain.  Are they worth moving up nearer to the peak??

I love Lynn Kurland.  Except for a few of her very early books, she doesn't have any sex scenes at all in her writing.  She said in an interview she felt she could convey the emotion without the scene itself.  So its just sort of alluded to.  Which books do you have in your mountain?  I've read most of hers and could probably offer suggestions.

I have only read 1 Lynn Kurlad book and it was one of hers about a 700 ghost.  I really enjoyed it!

OK Kathy - I looked back thru mine (because alot of hers are keepers) and if you have "This is all I ask" or "A Dance Through Time" you have a fantastic book on your hands.  Both are keepers.  If not these, which ones do you have?

Lynn Kurland is one of my favorite authors.  I have all of her books (but not the new "magical" one) and have read them many times.  Most of the books are interconnected - her website has an idea about the best order to read them.  The stories are sweet and at times, I've cried.  One of the first things I did on paperback swap was to complete my set!

Enjoy!!

The Very Thought of You is good but to me, I wouldn't move it up in the TBR pile.  The other 3 I honestly can't remember how good they are,. but I'm thinking not her best work.

Thanks for the feedback Sherri.  I'll let them stay farther on down the "mountain".  LOL

Oh I loved all her books! I just completed my collection of everything she's written so read them all in a row! I really like the last one just as well as the first! I don't think they are the same either, she does something different in each book. Some of them are time travel and others are just historical romances.
