I'm so overwhelmed by too many books that it's making it hard to concentrate and I'm not liking any of 'em. :-( Though I am starting to get into the Maya Banks Desire I'm reading... starchy amnesiac hero, right up my alley!

Just finished Dreams of a Dark Warrior and it was just so freakin good! I couldn't read fast enough and was all emotional about it when I was finished. I can't wait for Lothair's book just to see where KC is going with this thing. There are so many couples I am dying to find out about.

Put Lord Langley's Back In Town aside because  Inked is due back at the library ASAP.  I have had a hard time getting into it, but I'm going to give it one more try before I DNF.

Just read The Assignment and Hunted http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004YQCGLW/ref=kinw_myk_ro_title  both by Evangeline Anderson. Assignment was meh but Hunted was really good.

 Now reading Need Me by Shelli Stevens and it's ok so far.

Willa, I really liked that Banks book. I don't usually go for the amnesiac plots, but that one drew me in. 

I finished Blood of the Rose (Tudor Vampire Chronicles, Bk 2) by Kate Pearce, and liked it infinitely more than the first one. I'm now almost done with A Bite of Magick (Magick Men, Bk 2) by Rhyannon Byrd, and loling at some of the cheesiest dialogue ever unintentionally written.

Yeah, the Banks was really good! I hope it broke my reading slump. Now finishing Second Grave on the Left -- don't like it as much as the first.

I finished Succubus Revealed by Richelle Mead and it was pretty good. Heart of Texas (Vol 1) by Debbie Macomber is next. I've never read anything by her, so I hope I like it.

I started on Cry Uncle by Judith Arnold.  It was a recent freebie at BN.  So far not bad.

After finishing off A Bite of Magick, I read a really good, cute short story by Kate Douglas, A Wolf by Any Other Name. It was like nothing I had ever read before, with a sexless woodsprite heroine. Yep, you read that right. It originally appeared in the Luck of the Irish anthology. 

Now I picked up one that has been on my TBR a long time, Skintight by Susan Andersen.

I liked the one Judith Arnold I read. Have bought a few more by her, but of course not gotten to them yet. :-\

Reading Elizabeth's Wolf, very good though a little juicy. But it's Lora Leigh, what else is new.

Ohhh, I have that on my tbr, it jumped to the top!

Edited to add, I just saw it was the third in a series, can they be read out of order?

Finished Cry Uncle by Judith Arnold.  It was good.  Not overly complicated or angsty - a good beach read or rainy day read.

Also read Rocky Mountain Match by Pamela Nissen which was good.

Finished Elizabeth's Wolf. It was good, but not as great as I'd hoped. I think Jane Graves' latest is up next, and I also have Shameless to finish.

I started kerrelyn sparks' new vampire book - gregori's story.

Cyndi - this is book 3 of the Crime Tells serie s- you see characters from previous books and there's a reporter who's into an animal rights activists group yada yada yada who shows up - If you're a stickler for following an erotic romance storyline you may want to go in order but if you just want some hot nookie go for this one - I think it's the best of the 3 nope 4 I have .keep forgetting Cole and haven't finished it yet either(ebook) Calista's Men is my fave but the first 2 are good as well - Lyric's Cop - the hero is very alpha and into 'rough' sex I guess though Lyric had no problemo dishing it out herself..Cady's was tamer I'd say with a cowboyish hero, Calista's Men has lyric in it off and on - 2 twin brothers - Benito the more playful(thought still dominant) and Dante the cop who's very dominant yet falls for her. I'd just read the sucker out of order and forget the charactrs you see and don't recognize!

For a quickie I read Rachel Lee's Just a Cowboy and it was ok. I enjoy going back to Conard County every once in awhile.

I'm struggling through Colters' Daughter.  I am just not a fan of the whole dom/sub thing.  I don't get the "I want you to surrender all control to me because I know what's best for you and I know (more than you) what you want" thing, which always, always leads to the hero immediately demanding that she take her clothes off and always remain naked when they are together.  Um.... I don't care how sexy you are, I don't want to walk around naked all day long just so you can "take me" whenever you want.  I like arrogance in my heroes, and alphas are definitely my thing, but a Dom?  Not so much.

Michelle Ididn't like the first Colter's book - heroine was TSTL and the sex wasn't all that great IMO either..and I agree - I wouldnt' want to walk around naked all day either..

working day shif t- blech - very limited reading time. :-( plus it's busy which makes it easier to take LOL!

Am not liking the Jane Graves at all. :-( I'll give it a little longer, but I may have to decline to review it. Today's gym book will be Romancing the Countess by Ashley March, which I won in a contest, lucky me! 

It's very nice to get freebies, but I'm going to be happy when the books I feel responsible for reviewing are gone and I can just pick whatever I want when I want it...

Romancing the Countess is really good so far. Strong emotions, interesting characters. It's a challenging plot and I really hope it's going somewhere good!
