Okay--I'd never even heard of Suzanne Brockmann before joining PBS--and then I read a lot of great things about her Seal/Troubleshooters series on here. And now, I have the complete set (well at least everything she's written in the series so far). Thank you, thank you, to one and all who have recommended this series. I am totally in love with it--and these aren't the type of romance novels I ever thought I'd enjoy!

I'm currently reading the 4th book--Out of Control and am enjoying every moment of it. I have fallen completely in love with Jules Cassidy and Sam and Alyssa are breaking my heart. I am so looking forward to reading the rest of the books and I know that I'm probably going to be way too impatient to wait for a book to come up on wishlist. Alhtough I've bought All Through the Night, which means that it'll get posted and fulfill some other wishes! I'm reading the books in order so it might be awhile til I get to that one. But I find myself telling myself--okay, I'll read another chapter, and then I read that at night and say, okay another chapter. And next thing I know it's way later than it should be and I need to get up at 530!

I'm loving them too. They are totally not my usual tastes and I skipped through a fair amount of the first two, but now I'm devouring every word.  Just finished Sam & Alyssa's book, really looking forward to getting to Max and Gina's!

I can hardly wait to get to Sam and Alyssa's book because right now my heart is breaking for them. I want more Jules Cassidy too.

 

I love that her characters aren't bound by what we would think of as traditional conventions--and that the heroes struggle as much as the heroines do. And woohooo for the older women getting the younger men :)

You will get more Jules, you lucky girl. ;-)

Yeah, I really like the convention breaking. Just the balding hero in the first book was a thrill - not that I like bald men, just that it was DIFFERENT. And the hits just keep on coming!  You name a rule, she breaks it - except that people fall in love and stay in love, which is just what we want.

I'm glad you like them as much as I do.  Her books are one of the few series I have kept in hardback because I know I will reread the whole series again someday.
