Finished Possession and while I really liked it, it didn't blow me away like the last book, although Duke was extremely HOT! I also finished Rachel Gibson's Run to you which was a sweet read, but ILY timeline too short to believe. I am thinking that I am going to read Grace Burrowes's Lady Jenny's Christmas Portrait.

I read Honor and Betray by Teresa Mummert. I liked it alright, I guess. I think Mummert really needs to wrap this story up though.

I also read Present Perfect by Alison Bailey.  It broke my heart at times, but I loved it.

Reading Molly Harper's Rhythm and Bluegrass and I finished Jill Shalvis's Always on my Mind. The JS was a great read, like reading candy instead of eating.

I took a break from romance to read a horror book. Now back to the romance!

Reading There Is No Light In Darkness by Claire Contreras.

I finished Axel and now I think I'm going to do  re read of Dark Lover. That whole series is on sale and it was the only one I didn't have.

I Love the Earl by Caroline Linden was cute. I really liked her voice.  Not sure what's up next.

Read Unattainable and liked it but the main couple sort of annoyed me and I can't imagine them staying together.

Started Convicted (final book of the Consequences series) and the first chapter already had my heart pounding.

Barreling my way through some shorter ebooks for a challenge and man... I'm pissed. I paid good money for some of these and thought they were actual books. Lesson learned: look at the number of pages. And many, many of them are self published dreck. All an author needs is a good back cover writer, I tell ya.

Finished The Counterfeit Mistress by Madeline Hunter, it was my fav so far of the series, but I am thinking the last book in the series is going to be the best and started One Forbidden Evening by Jo Goodman.

hoping to finish up The Nurse's Secret Suitor- rave reviews on her facebook page about this one but shesh it's not *that* great - good but nowhere near her best IMO - could have been part of an anthology IMO. some of hers are among my favorite stories too..

finally finished The Nurse's Secret Suitor- parts were really good but ovrall the book seemed to drag for me :-( felt like I was stuck on a merry go round with the same scene coming around over and over again...bummed because this has always been one of myfave love inspired authors - esp her earlier ones set in the neighboring town.

started another leslie meier mystery and also re-reading an old fave (in spite of all the library ebooks I want to read LOL!) The Right Path by Nora Roberts...it's an old silhouette I finally got on kobo with a coupon.

I tell ya'll - for all my dislike of drama I seriously need to stay out of CMT :-( just can't believe some of the stuff and how people think in this world!
