I just finished The Serpent Prince by Elizabeth Hoyt and I reall liked it.  I liked it more than The Raven Prince.  It is the last of the trilogy and I still need to finish The Leopard Prince.  I appreciate a hero that can shed tears.  I just really enjoyed the H/H in this story.

Susan, if you decide to unload that trilogy, please let me know as I'm interested in getting all three of them.  Thanks!

Not sure what exactly I'll be reading this week.  Right now I am re-reading Lord of the Fading Lands for about the 4th time.  I have probably 200 books here unread but just had the urge to re-read this one again because I enjoy it so much.

Dawn - I would be happy to pass it along to you.  I'll make a note to check with you first when I'm done.  I still have that Lord of The Fading Lands to read myself.

I'm reading Heart of the Dragon by Gena Showalter.  About a chapter in to it only.  It's a paranormal but I moved it to the top of the TBR pile because it's got a 50+ WL for it.

Well, I am not sure what I am going to read next.  If everything wroks out I may be moving in a couple of months.  So I am trying to get started packing.  So today I packed up one box of TBR.  Of corse I found books that I forgot about and also ones that were not on my TBR yet.    I do have a few of the Knights of Light series.  I think I might read them. 

So I better get to it!

Carrying over from last week's thread to answer Susanna's question.

I liked Iron Cowboy but I am a huge Diana Palmer fan.  Her books tend to follow a formula so I find I can't read too many of them back to back.  This one followed her formula so it was good but nothing too stand out about it.

I'm reading Hot by Julia Harper -- it's fast and fun.

I finished Divorced, Desperate and Delicious by Christie Craig--never read her before but it was a good/funny story and I'd read more of hers. I just read Circle of Gold by Diana Palmer--a nice, sweet romance. I'm starting The Serpent Prince next since it's a library book and it's on my List.  I hit the jackpot  at the library this week--I found some of my WL and RL books.

ETA: I got 2 Monica McCarty books (Highlanders Unchained and Unmasked) from the library--has anyone read this series?

Sarah - I've got Heart of the Dragon on my keeper shelf - I loved it!

I'm currently reading Predatory Game by Christine Feehan and its very good.  But I like all her stuff!

Sherri - I just finally finished Predatory Game and I give it about a 7.  Definitely not a keeper  - I just had issues with the H/H.  But it's always nice to revisit that world - I need to check her site to see if there are clues to whose story is next -  I am hoping for Kadan myself.

Let's see...I just finished Shifter - paramormal with Knight, Leigh, Day and Kantra. Super good and a keeper!

Now I'm reading A Charmed Death - a witchy mystery with a touch of romance. Then it will be Sex, Murder and a Double Latte by Kyra Davis. I'm not sure after that but I need points so I'll be hitting the WL'd books in my tbr pile. :)

Oh Collette - I just went and added Shifter to my Amazon WL...all the stories actually sound good!  I especially want to read that Alyssa Day one.

I just finished Secrets of the Highlander by Janet Chapman (last call if anyone wants it!  Will be posting to FIFO tomorrow otherwise) so have to figure out what to start next.  I have Spirited Away by Cindy Miles and Passions of the Ghost by Sara Mackenzie on the top of my TBR pile...maybe will star Spirited Away since it is WLed.

Ok, I did it.  I boxed up 4 boxes of TBR.  I sorted out a stack to read now.  I still have more to box but I am done for the day.  I did find a few books that I had alread read and now my bookshelf is almost at 70.  That is good for me.  After making a short stack I am going to read The Irish Devil by Diane Whiteside.  Bucause it it March and I am part Irish so why not!  I hope everyone has a great Monday!

I'm still reading Wicked Women Whodunit.  I haven't had much reading time lately with packing up the house and life in general.  I need to read Candy Apple Red by Nancy Bush next for the Ice Cream Swap. It's already been revealed.

I am reading Satisfaction Guaranteed by Lucy Monroe. I love the first three in this series so I am sure this one is going to be great.

Susan, just FYI, I saw "Shifter" at Wally World the other day.  They still do not have "Killer SEALs" so I broke down and ordered it from amazon, along with a few other things including one for a swap.

Lori - I just ordered The Irish Devil based on comments in this forum.  Can't wait to get it!

Dawn - thanks for the heads up.  Maybe I'll make the trek over to WallyWorld later to see what's there (as if I need MORE books for my TBR stack lol)

Susan,

Aww I wish I wasn't keeping it in a way. I would send it to you. It's worth the money though. All the stories were great and how often does that happen? The Day story was really great! I love those Atlantis Warriors and her shapeshifters.

Louisiana Susan - I hope so too about Kaden!  To me he's so mysterious and I think he'll get a good story.  Ooh I wonder if he could be the hero for that Thorne girl they kept mentioning in Predatory Game?

I was thinking that very thing Sherri Re: Thorn and Kaden.  Christine Feehan's website doesn't mention anything yet about the next in the series.  She does have a trailer up and behind the scenes photos for Predatory Game and I must say I was disappointed because they actors she cast in the trailer do not really fit my interpretation of her descriptions.

I finished Nothing Personal by Elisa Adams.  This 25 year old H had had a thing for his older sister's best friend (10 yr. older) all his life and decided to do something about it.  Enjoyed it.

Next, I think I will read The Paper Marriage by Susan Kay Law.  The h is approaching 40, childless, and her husband has been in a coma for 12 years.  Then she meets someone.  Looks good.
