Thought I'd go ahead and start it since it wasn't up yet...right now I'm reading an "oldie" but goodie by Karen Marie Moning called Beyond the Highland Mist.  I've read them all before but thought I'd collect them.

Hi Sherri,

Thanks for starting a new thread.  This is one thread that I don't want to miss.  Right now I'm reading Warrior's Bride by Gerri Russell.  This was one of my 2 free intro books for joining the Historical Romance Book Club from Dorchester Publishing Company.  I must admit, I'm really enjoying this one, and it is not one that I would have sought out.  That's why I decided to join this book club--I'll let someone else pick for me and see what I get.

I'm still working on " The You I Never Knew" by Susan Wiggs. It's not that i don't think it's a good book, i am just kind of in a reading slump right now, way too many things have been distracting me lately.

I'm starting All Or Nothing by Claire Cross.  I think it is about the third book in a series about some brothers and sisters, so hopefully it will stand alone since I haven't read the others.  I finished Hitting The Mark by Jill Monroe, a Blaze. Enjoyed it a lot.

10/7 -  I'm reading Patricia Potter's The Black Knave.  It's been awhile since I've read anything by her (and I've never tried her contemporaries) but I particularly remember loving her westerns.  This book is very good, too, though I'm only halfway through.  A very "meaty" read compared to many I pick up these days.

I've got Shadow Hawk on order myself - hope its as good as everyone says!  Right now I'm reading Reclaiming Nick by Susan May Warren.  I just started it and its a bit slow but I've heard it picks up so I'll stick with it and see.

Sherri,  I've absolutely made a fool of myself gushing over Shadow Hawk.  I'm certain you'll like it.  I think it is interesting how a book can just grab onto you and hold on.  I just couldn't put it down, and it is on the keeper shelf.  Just talking about it makes me want to pick it up again.  However, I'm in a short term reading challenge and I don't think reading the same book twice counts as two separate books, LOL.

I just finished the Irish Devil by Diane Whiteside.  I think I'm going to hang on to it awhile even though it's a WL book.  I just started Double Dare by Saskia Walker. I'm only a few pages into it though. Hubby and I have been snuggling on the couch watching all the CSI's we taped this week.  He's watching a show about the mafia in Vegas so I think I'll read and cuddle. 

Double Dare is about a female investment adivisor who pretends to be a secretary while dating a client whom she thinks is a messenger delivery man.  He's really a night club owner.  Apparently her job turns men off.  But he knows who she is because he's researched the company she works for already.

double dare sounds like a good one! Is that one of the blaze titles or a 'regular' size book?

Kathy, the only way I could stop reading shadow hawk was by going back to the cover..I still pick it up and drool.sigh...I either need to find me a hunk or move out near a military base or something...wonder if harlequin would start selling posters of these cover dudes?? great, thenI could get a poster additction.

I have too many books I wanna read and not sure what I'll start next. I'm debating actually cleaning up my sewing/quilting area since Ih ave 2 days off and doing a 'mini-marathon sewathon' and get some stuff finished! of course the first step involves clearing the area of stuff that doesn't belong there which is my least favorite of all.might do it ofr an hour  or so then got o weight watchers and quick trip to quilt shop for some thread.

OK - Instead of Shadow Hawk, I actually read Just Watch Me by Julie Leto.  But Shadow Hawk is next!

Just Watch Me was a quick read.  It was decent although I had an issue with the invetigation part of the story.  It wasn't a keeper for me but good sex scenes and I enjoyed the hero and heroine (although the heroine had some family issues that I wanted to see more of and now I'm curious about her brother and wondering if there's a book about him)

Finished up Fire and Ice by Tori Carrington.  I liked that the "dumb jock" hockey player turned out to be so much more, and that he was the one to cave first in the looooooooove department.  I didn't dig the heroine too much because she ate as much junk food as she wanted and was reed-thin!  Talk about fiction.  ;) Some of the scenes were pretty hot, though.

Next up is Carnal Innocence , a Blaze by Julie Miller.

I just finished up Reclaiming Nick by Susan May Warren.  It was pretty good for a Christian romance.  If you aren't religious I wouldn't recommend it as it has alot of references to God and Bible verses but I enjoyed it alot.  Basically the storyline was about a father who has died and left half his sprawling Montana ranch to Cole, Nick's(of the title) former best friend.  Nick comes home to contest the will and finds out the girlfriend he left behind also married Cole and has made a life with him.  There's at least 2 more interconnected storylines tied in as well with a real good mystery as to why Daddy did what he did in his will.  It took a while to get going but once it did, it was hard to put down.

I read Night Watch by Suzanne Brockmann. I think it's the last book in her TDD series. I really liked it. I was kind of iffy on the story but it actually plays out a little differently than the the summary on the back of the book . This is the story of Wes Skelly and Brittany Evans(her sister Melody is married to "Cowboy" Jones).

I liked Nightwatch Jennifer! one of my favorites out of that series.

no reading today..at least not yet. spent the day running to fabric shops and weight watchers then came home and did  a little bit of sewing..now i'm tired so probably take a shower and read before bed.

Sherri that sounds like a good story!

I really liked Law's Marrying Miss Bright series--I actually read Marry Me first, and then eventually the others.  I really enjoyed how she balanced the romance with some humor and I liked her characters a lot.

I've been reading through the Bridgertons--I finished When He Was Wicked and It's in His Kiss over the weekend, and am trying to decide when to start On the Way to the Wedding.  It's the last one, and I almost don't want there to be nothing more to look forward to!  (I even read the two Lady Whistledown anthologies, although I didn't enjoy those quite as much.)

With everyone raving about Shadow Hawk, I might have to order it...  I can't remember what else I've read by Jill Shalvis...

And I agree with you, Jen and Susanna--Night Watch was a good one!
