I'm still reading Devil May Cry. It's good, I just haven't been in the mood to read. :(

oops forgot it's a new week! I couldn't sleep last night so stayed up to finish stephanie bond's 'body movers'. this turned out to be a pretty good read after the first 80 pages or so. I'll give the sequel a try then it's a year before the 3rd one comes out. It's not really a romance though there are 3 guys wanting the main character...2 of them would give me a run for mymoney but the other one is ick in my book.

Hi you early birds.  I'm reading another Blaze that is just as good as Shadow Hawk.  The title is Flyboy by Karen Foley.  He (the Hunk) is a Top Gun Navy pilot.  She is the engineer who is investigating why the planes are malfunctioning.  I won't say more except to urge you all to find a copy at your local discount/grocery store.  It is an October title, so they are just out in the stores.  This is another one for the keeper shelf for me.

I'm working on "Kidnapped!" by Jo Leigh.  It's a Blaze.  The heroine is rich and completely paranoid about being kidnapped (she's been kidnapped twice and she's only 24).  So, her psychiatrist sets her up with someone that has a business where he kidnaps people (at their request) so they can get over this fear.

The hero is her driver but it turns out she gets kidnapped for real.  Hero follows her and finds out his brother's invoved with the kidnapping so he's playing the kidnappers to try and get her rescued.

Brandy, There's a new book in the Wallflower series, Mine Till Midnight. If it hasn't been released yet it'll be out in October.

Read Vanished by Karen Robards. It's about Sarah an ADA. Her daughter went missing 7 yrs ago and has never been found. Now things are happening to test her sanity, a phone call with her daughter's voice asking for help, their secret code for help written on her car. It was good but a little hard to read because I have daughters. I also thought the ending could have been better.

Hopefully it will be a book by Mary Spencer....(never heard of her before ) Hoping it gets here this week.

Someone on RT asked about this American West book in the Slueth Corner and it sounded so good that i had to  order it .

If you're and American Old West fan like me  you'll probably like it too..

I just finished Flyboy.  It was a good one.  I've decided to switch gears and next up is Warrior's Bride by Gerri Russell setting  Scotland  the 14th century.  I haven't read any medieval romance, so this will be a good change from Flyboy.

Kathy, Flyboy sound good.   I'm just finishing up A Rogue in a Kilt by Sandy Blair.  Its good, not as good as her first and third one in this series, but still good.

I'm reading "The Hunted" by L.A. Banks.  Been taking my time on reading this book and really enjoying it.  It is the third book in the Vampire Huntress Series.

Bronwyn, that's an AWESOME find--Get Lucky, that is :)   And I like those SEPs, too, but I think my favorite is probably Ain't She Sweet.

Kathy, I might have to get Flyboy :)

Sherri, what else has Tamera Alexander written?  I only know about the Fountain Creek trilogy--is there more?

Been reading Hot Spell, an erotic paranormal anthology.  Paranormals aren't usually my thing (I get too easily creeped out), but this is pretty good.  The first story, by Emma Holly, is about a woman who falls in love with a lower-class demon (who in this story are another earthly species who just happens to be slightly more technologically and physically superior than humans).  Lora Leigh's story is from her Breeds series (a species engineered to incorporate the best of the felines, I think?), and Meljean Brook's story is about a man who becomes a Guardian (something in between humans and angels).  I'm on the last story, by Shiloh Walker, and haven't decided if I'll read it all the way--it's about werewolves.  If any of you are interested, let me know--I'll probably post after I'm done. :)

I just finished Speed Dating by Nancy Warren, one of those Nascar books.  I usually don't even read books where the H is still so involved with his ex-wife, but this one actually worked for me.  I enjoyed it.

Now I have started Old Boyfriends by Rexanne Becnel, a Harlequin Next.  I got it at the FOL sale Friday and it is looking good to me.

I'm reading Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade by Diana Gabaldon.  It's not romance (well, actually there may turn out to be some romance, but that's not the genre), but any connection to the Outlander series and I'm there!  We do get to see a little bit of Jamie in this one -- can't say how much yet since I'm not very far in, but he's already made at least one appearance!

Edited for typos.

Fedora - as far as I know she's only "written" the trilogy but I have read some devotionals and articles by her.  I've read the first two books and gave them away and now I'm trying to get them all back for keepers.

I picked up 2 new ones at the grocery store (which of course I didn't need!) - Madeline Hunter's Lessons of Desire  and Susan Sizemore's Primal Desires (part of a series).  I'm going to start one of them today.

I looked at Flyboy but didn't pick it up.  DH is in Naval avaition.  I'm around "Flyboys" all the time.  I was the only woman at the table at a dinner the other night w/6 of them.  So I tend to like my romances w/o a Naval or military flight theme.  I see men in flight suits, choker whites and dress blues almost daily.

I don't know what I'm going to read next.  I think one of Kresley Coles vampire books.  We watched the Underworld movies this weekend.  I picked up A Hunger Like No Other and another one by KC at Half-price books awhile a back just to try them.  That's not usually my theme.  And they are both WL so I might as well read them now.

Happy Monday!  I finished you the first  2 books in Brockmann's Troubleshooter Series. So tonight I am going to start # 3.  I like them but not as much as the Cindy Gerard Bodygard series.

Mary,  I can definitely see why you wouldn't want to read  Flyboy..That's like taking a busman's holiday.  However, for those of us who don't see these guys everyday, heck every year, LOL., this was a really good read.

There's just that something about a uniform.  And the guys in them.  And the way they walk.  and . . . why am I here?  Oh, yeah.  I finished Old Boyfriends and I really enjoyed it, a keeper.  I don't know what to read now,. I can't seem to settle because the weather is gorgeous here and has just that hint of "Get out here and enjoy this cause winter is next" to it.

Well, I know what I'm going to read next.  I went to get the mail and the Lora Leigh I ordered from BAMM arrived.  It's called Broken Wings, and it's supposed to be very different from her other work, very little sex, and also a two hanky read.  I was so intrigued I finally bought it.  The WL wait here looks to be roughly until the end of time.
