30 pages left in NO DECENT GENTLEMAN/Patricia Grasso which I started yesterday afternoon and haven't been able to put down.

I'm wondering if there is a book about this hero's mother; one of the author's backlist sounds like it 'could' be a prequel but I'm not sure. I requested the 2 other books in this trilogy yesterday. First time I've read a Grasso and I'm looking forward to reading more of her books.

If you find out, let me know so I can add it to GoodReads. That's the sort of thing I always want to know.

I finished off Master of the Mountain by Cherise Sinclair today.  Good read, don't like it as much as her Masters of the Shadowlands series.

Now I picked up Masquerade by Sherri Whitefeather.  So far, I'm liking the secondary story much more than the primary story.  I'm not even sure I'm liking the heroine too much at this point.

Any Man of Mine by Rachel Gibson.  So far, I hate it.  Well, I hate the hero.  They tell me on Goodreads to keep going though- supposedly somehow he manages to redeem himself.  I can't see how, he's such a self-centered jackass, but ok.  I hope I don't hate it all the way through.

I finished The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper- it was cute but I liked the first book better.

Now I'm reading Small Town Hearts a love inspired by ruth logan herne..making me hungry since the heroine owns a candy store and the hero is scouting for a location for his big chain candy company(reminds me of You've Got Mail)

I finished my rereads of the first two Psy-changeling books this weekend (MUCH better the second time around), and just finished Blood of the Raven (Embraced, Bk 2) by Anya Bast. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first one — I think it had something to do with the first book being a historical paranormal, and this one jetting forward a several decades to become a contemporary. Still a good read, though.

Now, finally, more Psy-changelings....Caressed by Ice (Psy-Changelings, Bk 3).

I finished Hidden Away by Maya Banks and loved it!  I can't wait for the next book.   I also read Blindsight by Kait Nolan and it was good too.  A new author for me.

Now I'm reading How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper.

Finished Dead Reckoning. NOT romantic, but I thought it very good. Have to finish up the Karen Rose book I'm reading.

How to Flirt with a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper was pretty good.  I liked the humor in it.  Doubt I'll read the sequel though since I didn't care for the heroine who will be in it.

Sherri the sequel wasn't as good IMO - she wasn't the same attitude in that one though but I was confused with the first person since it was someone other than Mo yet Mo appears in the book a lot. I liked the hero though but you probably wouldn't - he was more beta I'd say - a geek with muscle! It was still cute though.

I finished Small Town Hearts by Ruth Logan Herne - a love inspired. it was pretty good lots of candy talk like fudge and cookies! made mehungry. I tried to get into another LI but it didn't do it for me - thank goodness that one was a li brary book. I started Loyalty in Death but only got one chapter - if that - before I fell asleep.

Ooo, geek with muscle... wish my geek would get some muscle. :-)

Finishing up Hot for the Holidays. Not really my thing, but the Allyson James story made me want to try her again.

I'm reading a harlequin intrigue by julie miller from several years ago  it's the first ina min series but I've already read the others and found this one at a thrift store for 25 cts...for some reason I never got the one I requested from here back when and didn't re-request it. it's pretty good.

still have Loyalty in Death but wanted something less complicated for today.

finished Protective Instincts by Julie Miller - think it's from 2008. Pretty good; easy read. Of course it's book 1 and I've already read the other 3 - think I read most out of order. I like her Intrigues- think I have some of her Blaze titles in my tbr somewhere - will have to give them a try one of these days.

not sure what I'll read next - maybe go ahead with Loyalty in Death by Robb since I have the next from the library and want to return it since others are reading this series(seems I have to wait on something all the time but luckily found my copies of some in the meantime)

I finished The Unexpected Bride by Debra Ullrick.  It was pretty good but started to get a little sappy at the very end.

Not sure what I'm reading next.

Finished Have You Seen Her. Did NOT like the cliched way the romance went. Rose is usually much better. Oh well, one less book in the house.

I'm about halfway through Play of Passion.  I'm not loving it, mainly because I'm not a huge fan of "I want you but it will never work so I'm going to fight my feelings to the bitter end" scenerio, especially when it's the female that does it.  If Indigo is such a badass, smart dominant female then she should be able to deal with having feelings for a dominant male... does she really want someone she can push around who will never challenge her?  I'm plugging through, though, because I love this series and I can't wait to read Kiss of Snow, which is silently waiting for me on my Nook.  lol

Michelle - I hated Indigo!! 

I ended up reading Pack Territory (Were Chronicles #3) by Crissy Smith.   Not bad.  I waited too long between books 2 and 3 though and I had sort of forgotten who was who.

Caressed by Ice (Psy-Changelings, Bk 3) has been my favorite so far, I think. Especially that last half. I couldn't figure out how Judd and Brenna were going to make their unique relationship work, but was happy with the end result. And I like the buildup with Protocol I and the Ghost...and I think I have an inkling of who the Ghost is. ;)

I'm going to read Tamsyn and Nate's story in An Enchanted Season, then it's on to Mine to Possess (Psy-Changelings, Bk 4). I'll likely have to take a 1 or 2 book break before moving on after that, though. This series is not one you can just speed-read through.

Another book review site speculated that The Ghost is..............Kaleb Krychek.
