Doing some frantic reading recently. Loved Courtney Milan's The Duchess War...fabulous read! Also finshed Sarah McCarty's Caden's Vow and again the book didn't live up to my expectations, also finished Delilah Marvelle's All I want for Christmas is a Duke and really liked it. I am also halfway through Shannon Butcher's Edge of Sanity and it has been pretty good.

Reading Another Eden, historical by Patricia Gaffney. It's very dark -- married heroine with horrific husband.

I finished Belong to Me (Shayla Black).  It was ok.  As I said before, the hardcore BDSM/slave thing is not my cup of tea.  I got tired of reading about Tara's wishy-washy feelings....she was so afraid to trust Logan again (understandable, but still), but I didn't want to read over and over again how she wanted to believe in him but there was no way she could give her heart to him again because it would kill her when he left again, etc.  Blach.

Im reading a YA romance, The Vincent Brothers. Im lovin it. It took a little while to get into it because its been a long time since I read the first one and I was just a tad lost. Now that im remembering the first one, im very much enjoying this one. The H has pi$$ed me off more than a couple times already though. Im at the last quarter or so and he's got some major groveling to do.

Read Just Good Friends by Rosalind James and loved it!  It was set in New Zealand and the hero was a Maori rugby player.  Great story.

Sherri, it sounds good, is it lendable?  I finished Stephanie Lauren's All About Passion, Chillingworth's book and it was a good read. Not quite how I pictured's Gyles book, but I liked Francesca. Wish it had a longer ending...or a epilog.

Just finished Another Eden by Patricia Gaffney. Glad I didn't buy this one... very dark and depressing. I think this is the only Gaffney romance I haven't loved, so far.

I've been reading Johanna Lindsey's Malory series since last week and can't get enough of them... love love love them. I'm officially addicted with historical romance. LOL Currently reading the Present.

I finally finished Gabriel's Inferno. Wow - that was a long one! It was really a pretty good story. The H had some big dark secret, and I was expecting it to not be so bad once it came out, but it really kinda was. He was pompous and pretty full of himself, but I did like him. Her, not so much. She barely had a spine. Constantly looking at the floor/shoes and biting her lip. Constantly.

I need to pick up Sylvia Day's Reflected In You from the library today, so that's next. Can't wait!!

I need to read Gabriel's Inferno, its been sitting on my Kindle for WAY too long.

I read The Edge of Never by Redmerski and I think I'm one of the few that didn't just love it. It was okay. Then I read With All That I Am by Kristen Ashley, which is the second in her Three trilogy. I loved the first one but this one was...different. It also used a plot device that I hate so that was a problem for me. If you've read any KA you'll understand completely y what I mean when I say it's different if you read it. I'm glad I read it because its important to the plot. She needs to hurry up and write the last one.

Um...yes, it is "lendable", if you follow my meaning.  wink

Well, I started and finished  Reflected in You yesterday. Geez! I couldn't put it down, obviously! Those two are so addicting!

I'm not sure what's up next either.

eta: I'm reading My Heart for Yours by Jolene Perry and Steph Campbell.

Reading Wicked Ties by Shayla Black and it has so many cliches that I may not finish. I'm on page 98 now and am going to give it 50 more pages.

Reading The Other Side of Us by Sarah Mayberry. It's quite good but I'm longing for things to spice up or intensify or something. The couple is almost 40, which is kind of cool.

Lol Gina! Haven't read that one yet, but it's near the top of my Kristen Ashley tbr list.

I finished My Heart for Yours. It was an awesome story. The big secret wasn't hard to guess, but the story was well told and very touching.

Now I'm reading Fallen From Grace by Laura Leone. I'm only 20 pages into it or so, but it grabs your attention right away.

Gina, I read Motorcycle Man over the weekend, and I FLOVE Tack and Hawk.  In fact, the whole series was great!  I'm on the Colorado Mountain Man series now and I have to say y'all were right.  Kristen Ashley writes great books!  So great, I'm thinking I need to move to Denver.

So far, I've read all but book 3 of the Colorado Mountain Man series. I actually started with Breathe - bk 4. Which is so far, still my favorite. And so far I've read the first 2 Rock Chick books. The second was definitely better than the first, which has so far been my least favorite of all that I've read. She is awesome though, even her "not so great" is pretty darn good!
