Oops, sorry it's so late!! If I forget to post, please feel free to post the topic for the week. :)

I'm reading "The Devilish Pleasures of a Duke" by Jillian Hunter and still reading "Devil May Cry" by Sherrilyn Kenyon.

I'm just getting started on Irish Devil by Diane Whiteside.  I scored it at Half-Price books yesterday for $3.  So far it's really good but I'm not that far into yet.  I added the other "devil" books of hers to my WL.  This one was on my WL but I couldn't resist buying it for $3!  Especially since I know there's a WL for it here and I can get a credit for it if it's not a keeper.

I'm working on "Risking it All" by Stephanie Tyler.  It's a Blaze and the sequel to "Coming Undone".  Just got it in the mail yesterday.  It's awesomely good!

I just started Honk if you love real men.  It's a compilation of 4 stories by Carrie Alexander, Pamela Britton, Susan Donovan and Lora Leigh.  I just read the Lora Leigh story and it was quite hot!

I just finished Top-Secret Bride by Nina Bruhns.  This is a Silhouette Romantic Suspense #1480.  This is a September book, so it should still be on the stands.  I just posted it, but it is wish listed.

Anyway.  Super book.  It starts off with a great passion scene and just keeps getting better.  Loved the characters and the interesting plot line about the blood diamond trade in Africa.

I just finished up a quick Harlequin Intrigue called Licensed to Marry by Charlotte Douglas.  It was pretty good.  I'm ordering the sequel to it since it sounds pretty good too AND the author of that one also wrote a good Blaze I liked.

I recently finished UNDERNEATH IT ALL by Lori Borrill.  Hot, hot, hot BLAZE book.  2nd book in the "Million Dollar Secrets" mini-series.

Next up is FLIRTING WITH FORTY by Jane Porter.  Which is a VERY sad reality for me.   LOL  I am not just flirting with 40, I am knocking on the door.   ;-)

Still working on A Cowboy and a Gentleman, a Silhouette Desire by Ann Major, and started up Undead and Unemployed by Mary Janice Davidson.

Hoping to finish up this Ann Major one soon so I can get to the stack of Blazes that arrived the other day.  RrRRRRRrrrRRRrrrr. ;)

I've been really busy this past weekend, but still managed to squeeze in a few minutes of reading time. I'm almost finished with The Chocolate Bear Burglary by JoAnna Carl. It's the second book in the series, but it's good! I'll go back and read #1 at some point...but I've got Pamela Britton's newest NASCAR book waiting for me....my MIL was nice enough to buy it and then let me read it, I can't wait!

Ok I had to put down The Irish Devil by Diane Whiteside.  I can't read about spanking & bondage stuff while babysitting the kiddies.  I'll pick it up again next weekend.  I'm in Western mode now. So I dug Lone Wolf's Woman by Carol Finch out of the tbr pile.  It's good.  So far it's an easy read.  Half-breed bounty hunter marries fiesty tomboy to help save her ranch.  Not a very original plot but it's entertaining.

Ok, I finished Honk if you love real men this morning. It's a compilation of 4 stories by Carrie Alexander, Pamela Britton, Susan Donovan and Lora Leigh. I really enjoyed 2 of the 4 stories.  Namely the ones by Susan Donovan and Lora Leigh.  I didn't care much for the other two (The Pamela Britton one was about a woman trying to recover from rape and going to her first love to have him have sex with her - but it got too freaky for me when another woman was added briefly and then she had him tie her up - it was hot, just uncomfortable)

I may take a romance break and try and finish The Amber Spyglass and the 4th Harry Potter Book.

Susan, I have that anthology..there's 2 anthologies and 2 books by Lora Leigh that are a series but can't remember the order other than it's an anthology, book, anth, book in the order seems like. one fo the 'books' takes place around an s&M bondage club with undercover work or something.

early this morning I finished 'live a little' a blaze titel by nancy warren. It was pretty good but not like stephanie tyler's! I enjoyed it though.  go on night shift tonight so need to find some of the books i'm wanting to read!

Susanna,

The Lora Leigh story in the Honk if you love real men anthology involved a Navy Seal.  The Navy Seal's sister is also in love with another Seal (although you don't see them in that anthology).  I may have to do a search on Lora Leigh to see if that story is in another book.  I don't  mind S&M stuff but that Pamela Britton story wasn't sexy to me AT ALL.

real men do it better is the other anthology susan and the 2 big books are dangerous games and hidden agendas...just not sure of the order but I think dngerous games is 2nd and hidden agendas is the 4th story...I think you started with the first one because in the 2nd book the girl's brother is a seal and the seal she's wantd since she was 16 or so has a sister married to the girl's brother seems like...raven? I think was the girl's name that was already married in the previous book.

Susanna you're right with the order there's also a 5th story, Killer Secrets, that's outin Jan. or Feb. of 08.

Just finished Total Control by Pamela Britton. It was good but I didn't like it as well as some of the others in her NASCAR series. This one is about Todd Peters, driver with an attitude from the last book, and how his relationship with a 10 yr old boy with cancer changes him. I liked that part of the story. I couldn't really get into the romance/relationship between Todd and Indi.

I am reading Really Bad by Shirley Jump.  I like it a lot so far.  The link is in my signature line.

Susanna - you're right.  The girl's name was Raven and her man was Reno.  Thanks for the info.  I'll have to see if I can find her other books.

I have and have read Hidden Agendas.  I should post it there's  WL for it but I like to keep them until I read all of the series.  But I need to declutter. I have Dangerous Games as well in my TBR pile.Lora Leigh is one of my faves. I can't wait for the next Nauti book to come out.  I won't wait in the WL line. I'll probably order it from Amazon.

can't decide what to read..on night shift and don't think we'll be too busy so i have a bag of books I"m wanting to read and can't decide! I want to finish the crazy series but having trouble getting into 'crazy love'..partway through kathyry shay's 'promises to keep' but it's sorta 'deep-ish' so leaning towards one of the cooking class/school mysteries or a flipside or duet for something 'lighter'..hmm...or dig in that shay book and finish it LOL!

How sad is this?  I just realized I already own the Dangerous Games book by Lora Leigh!  I believe I picked it up at WalMart or something a few weeks back! lol  So I'm reading it now.
