Right now I'm reading two:  French Fried a cozy by Nancy Fairbanks and Basic Training by Julie Miller. This one is from the Blaze line.  Just got started, but it looks like it will be a good one.  As a matter of fact,  Sherri knows it is a good one--I got it from her in the mail yesterday.

Ha Ha Kathy! Yep its a good one.  I'm almost done with To Tempt a Scotsman by Victoria Dahl.  I'm not a big fan of regency-era but this is one decent.

woo hoo! I finished 'tag, you're it' by penny mccall...started this a while back but took a while to get back to but glad I read it! I didn't care much for the ending though it was still 'ok' so I think they'll need tobe mentioned in the next book which I'm guessing might be about that US attorney, Pierce..he's the only one mentioned and she's GOT to write more stuff!

now to decide between going ahead with 'risking it all' or starting the undead series my maryjanice davidson...I brought a bunch for my coworker ot pick from and she started with that one and really liked it. gotta bring the rest of the series that I have Wednesday for her.

I read and finished Waking up in Charleston by Sherryl Woods...it was really good! A very hearwarming romance involving forgiveness and love and family. Yes, it was sappy:)

Now I'm reading Charlie All Night by Jennifer Crusie.

I'm on the last of my Bad Boy anthology books that I bought last weekend.  This one is Really Unusual Bad Boys which is 3 stories that are related by Mary Janice Davidson.  It's all right . But I'm not really into paranormal/shapeshifting books usually.  It's got a WL line though. 

I think I'm going to start Arousing Suspisions by Marianne Stillngs next.  We were talking about her books on this thread last week and now I'm in the mood to read her.

I just ordered that Tag, You're It book from Amazon since everyone on here's been raving about it.  It should arrive on Wed and then I'll start reading it.

I fininshed Rocky Mountain Man by Jillian Hart. It was a historical romance.  I really just skimmed it for the most part - couldn't really get into the storyline.

Sherri that's how I read Really Unusual Bad Boys.  I'm not big on paranormals.  I get them occassionally.  I couldn't get into this one.

Mary, for me Paranormals are hit and miss.  Some are really good and some are ok and some are just terrible.  I read one earlier this year - I think it was Angela's warlord or something like that (see how awful it was, I can't even remember the name) and it was just one big book of sex with a crappy ending.

Sherri

*jeez, I had to go find out what that was - it was Jane's Warlord by Angela Knight.  Don't bother with it, its terrible.

Susan, have you read 'all jacked up'? It's her first book though they stand alone. Jack is mentioned in this one though and it's written similar to that one..lots of sarcasm going back and forth at each other. gotta be in the mood for it but I found it funny! And the women aren't wimps in her books and there are silly characters too that make it funny along with the action. I enjoyed it.

haven't started a new book though I still have some I've started but haven't gotten back to you like that robyn carr book and a stack of blazes and other books that I can't decide what to read next! probably a blaze..

I got a little sidetracked with a couple of Blaze books *ahem*, so I'm still working on "Tempt Me" by Caroline Cross. :)

I'm on the list for Nauti Boy too - tell us how you liked it!  Prince Joe is pretty good too.  I think I sent that to you didn't I? LOL

Susanna - no I haven't read all jacked up.  I was tempted to buy it as well but I decided to hold off.  I just got an oldie but a goodie in the mail today - Jude Devereaux's Velvet Promise!  EEEEEEE!  I can't wait to start it!

I just finished Sylvia Day's Dangerous -- Declassified: Dark Kisses .  It was only okay.  She used one word so many damned times that I thought I was going to scream! 

I'm now reading about 4 different Blazes at the same time.  I can't even think of titles off the top of my head, except for Shadow Hawk (Harlequin Blaze) which has the BEST COVER!!

I'm gonna hve to start shadowhawk! It does have a nice cover though I'ms till very partial to those gorgious buns in 'coming undone'...her other book about Cash (risking it all) isn't as great though! :-) you know, I've always wondered why if romance books are geared towards women they always put those bodice rippers on the covers and FINALLY realized some women actually like looking at a hunky looking dude for a change?! geez!

I finished Charlie All Night by Jennifer Crusie last night. I guess I have to say that first impressions aren't always correct. I tried to read Faking it by her a while back and ended up putting it down because it was so bad. But lately I've read 2 by her and have liked them both! Charlie All Night was really good IMO!

I'm about half way through Tangled Up In You by Rachel Gibson. I'm not enjoying this one as much as I usually do her books. It's not bad it's just not holding my interest.

I sent Susanna Shadowhawk. I had a really hard time parting w/the cover. He was really yummy. 

 

I have Nauti Boy. I've been tempted to post because it's on WL wait.  But I know I'll want to reread it when the next one comes out.

I just finished Rocky Mountain Widow by Jillian Hart.  Its a historical romance set in Montana.  It was pretty good but not a keeper.  Now I'm going to read a small series romance or two before starting on a new series.
