I just read Mystery Lover by Vicki Lewis Thompson, it is a Blaze book.  I really enjoyed it.  She has another that is a sequel to this book called Notorious.  Anyone read it?  Are all the Blaze books this good?  I am new to the series but would like to find Notorious and some other Blaze books in a deal, since I don't know what to expect from them.  What do you think of them?  Thanks!

I've read a lot of her books but not those 2 unfortunately :-(  I'm sure they're good...I read one of her Blaze titles and it was really funny and sexy.I'l search and see if I can find the title but it was about this small town girl going to new york to experience sexual fantasies..her only major purchase is a huge bed that only fits in the living room - too big for the bedroom and she 'experiments' on this stockbroker I think he is..the best friend to her best friend's hubby... Her Nerd series is funny too.

As for the Blaze line I find them hit and miss..some I've really really enjoyed and others were just ok..same with other books I guess. In general they're a bit spicier and the woman know what they want..I've found some of the older ones even better than the newer and vice versa..

ETA" Acting on Impulse is the title..really cute read.

some other Blaze titles I've ejoyed are Rhonda Nelson's 'the player','the specialist' and ,' the maverick'-, another series I can't remember the author of but the 'the PI' 'the cop' the defender' are the 3 books and they overlap, shadowhawk(hot cover on this one!) , untouched my samantha hunter was good too..

Becky, I have read those two by Vicki Lewis Thompson, and they are indeed excellent.  Unfortunately I do also agree with Susanna that the quality varies in the Blaze line.  The PI, The Cop, and the Defender are by Cara Summers.  Shadow Hawk is by Jill Shalvis, and she's pretty good, too.  One sure hit for me is Sarah Mayberry--I have loved every one of her Blazes (and I've read everything she's got in print so far).  I've also enjoyed some by Alison Kent, Stephanie Bond, Kimberly Raye, Kate Hoffmann, Julie Miller, and Jeanie London.

I think some are also mentioned in the thread about Series Romances.

And I've read that Hope Tarr's new historical Blaze Bound to Please is pretty good.

Happy reading!

I think Ani has several Blazes on her bookshelf..think it's her shelf I was looking at earlier and she's usually got a deal posted in her signature line..several here have deals in their signature line and in the thread started for deals. you can also post in the thread'is this book on your shelf' and ask for a deal on some blaze titles.

I just bought 'bound to please' the other day afterSherri said it was good!

ETA - yeah searched for 'mystery lover' and I'm pretty sure I already have this one in my TBR pile yeah!! don't have to order it LOL!

ETA again! was looking in the 'post deals and show off your shelf' thread (right now a few below this one but should be on the 1st page) and there's a shelf with a lot of blaze titles and a deal - think it's Jennifer..the picture is a monkey if that helps..had to get outta that shelf 'cause I can't remember which blaze titles I already have and it ws too tempting!

Notorious is the book that actually got me hooked on Blaze, until I realized not all the Blaze books are as great as that one.  Highly recommend you try, its one of my absoulte favorite by this author.  :)

LOL Susanna!  I posted over 200 books over the weekend!  I was in dire need of purging my shelves!  :)  Feel free to order any time!  ;)  I'm always willing to make deals!

My favorite Blaze author is Jill Shalvis.  I also like Leslie Kelly, Tori Carrington, Vicki Lewis Thompson, Janelle Denison, Carly Phillips.......  I think someone won Notorious from me in a Blaze swap in the games forum, so I don't have that one anymore.  I have Shadow Hawk in my TBR - I just need to get to it!  LOL
