I thought this would be fun!  If you could advise others to just say, "Skip It!" which book would you advise?

Mine would be The Trouble With Valentines's Day by Rachel Gibson.  When I got the book I could tell that the previous owner didn't get too far into it either.  Hated the Hero, Rob Sutter.  Completely creeped me out.  My advice?  SKIP IT!

Freedom's Price by Suzanne Brockmann - it was a complete wah wah wah lol. I know the guy went through a lot (he was held captive and tortured) but dang, two words - get help. Also, the story  line about the heroine being his ward - just stupid because she was a soldier in the war on her island (at 15) ummm, I think she can take care of herself.  And yet another stupid story line - she came to America and the hero was to make her more "civilized" to make her uncle happy - two more words (hmmm I'll let you use your imagination lol).

Though I really enjoyed the first book Forbidden, it was about the rescue of guy in the book above.

The Rebel Bride by Catherine Coulter-unless you like heroes that force the heroine into marriage, then disguise themselves to kidnap and rape heroine and then abuse her for not being a virgin.

Dirty Sexy Knitting by Cathy Ridgeway. I liked the 1st book in the series. But I only read a small amount of this one.   There was no way that I was going to come to like a hero that was suicidal and that the heroine had to repeatedly retrieve from bar floors because he'd passed out.

Accidentally Dead and The Accidental Human by Dakota Cassidy. I liked the first book but the friend, Nina, is the 'star' of the 2nd and her mouth is beyond what I can handle..she's always calling her friends and using the 'f' word repeatedly. even in Wanda's story, the 3rd b ook. it starts off with her mouth again. there were some funny parts here and there but overall I wish I'd stopped with the 1st book and never gone any farther.

The Temptation by Claudia Dain.  I rarely meet a book that I just cannot finish, but this one was.......boring is the nice way to say it.  I kept saying, "so have sex, already!".

I agree on To Desire a Devil.  Also, Galen Foley's latest My Wicked Marquess.  Skip that one also.

When to Seduce a Duke by Kathryn Smith, all about the sex and not much else I could see, no real chemistry/emotions between the two except lust, lust, lust, lol.  Hero bedded known for bedding every female in sight, no redemption shown at all, only reason he plans on being faithful now is because she meets all his lustful needs and glories in it.

That's a tough call, because I've read a lot of stinkers in my day...  I went down my BIR list though and this was the stinkiest stinker of the lot: The Light in the Darkness by Ellen Fisher. I did finish it, but afterward totally wished I hadn't:P
