Penmort Castle by Kristen Ashley was great. Made me cry which is always a plus. I'm also re-reading An Echo in the Bone by DG and just started A Bride for Christmas by Aileen Fish.

Omg.....Willa, The Sweet Gum Tree is one of my absolute faves!!!

Im a little over halfway through Wolfishly Yours. Loving it. Its surprising because I dont usually read historical. AT ALL. But for some reason I picked this series up a couple of years ago and was sucked right in.

I finished Convicted and wow! what a roller coaster ride. Excellent series, but not for everyone, I'm sure. I'll probably take a break or read something short and/or calming until Bold Tricks, the last in Karina Halle's Artists trilogy, is released on Tuesday.

I have also been reading up a storm...just wish it would bring some rain. *sigh* Finished Jo Goodman's Everything I Ever Wanted and I loved South and India as a couple...wonderful read. Finished Maire Claremont's Lady In Red, very dark romance, but still a riveting read, can't wait for James's book, this time it is a tortured hero that ends up in the asylum. Finished Jennifer McQuiston's Summer is for Lovers and again it was a quite good read. I say quite because the sexy times was just heavy petting until they were married but there were reasons for that which I got. I was surprised at the hero's book, but glad we got his story in the end. I do hope we get more couple time in the next book, because I really liked Caroline, she was a unique heroine.

I'm still reading the mystery I started last night. working nights and in the morning have to start getting ready for my colonoscopy on Tues- made the jello before work and guess I should pick up more juice after work and mix up my stuff...yuck..had planned on sleeping til time to start drinking the stuff but they told me to drink water all day - guess I'll set the alarm early and start then.

mystery is pretty good - have jd robb's betrayal in death ready to download but have to do that at home thanks to the usb requirement

I read Sweet Dreams by KA over the weekend and I just finished Wanderlust by Skye Warren. I don't think I'm really cut out for dubious consent stories but at least it wasn't very long.

A Bride for Christmas by Aileen Fish was a DNF for me. Boring.

That's exactly what I ended up doing. I'm only about half way through but really like it so far.

I just finished Kendall Grey's Strings, which was a complete raunch-fest, and I loved it. At times I think she tried too hard with her dirty euphemisms, though a lot of them were pretty funny. 

Next up: Bold Tricks! Can't wait.

Nancy's law: after any invasive medical procedure, you get to go have a nice lunch and  buy shoes. Or a stop at a foot massage place if you have those where you live.

Read Three Little Wishes by Susan Mallery, and it was ok.  Better than some in the series, but not fabulous.  I liked Isabel and Ford, and thought they had good chemistry- enjoyed their banter.  However, my issue was with the premise of Ford's mother being nosy and overbearing and trying to marry off her single sons, when in the earlier books of this series she was not like that.  It was a bit hard to suspend my disbelief on that, and caused me several eye rolls (though not as many as the booth from a couple of books ago).

After that I read Perfect Fling (Serendipity's Finest) by Carly Phillips, and really liked it.  I don't know why, but Carly Phillips has always been hit or miss for me- either I really like it, or I can't even get through it.  I have liked all of the Serendipity books so far, and this one might be my favorite.  Great chemistry between Erin and Cole, and I liked that the reader was given deep insight into both of them.

I don't know what to read next- I'm still on a reread of Outlander so will continue that, but haven't hit my TBR yet to see what else is next.

Glad you enjoyed that one Keri -- did you see my DA review? I liked it a lot too.

I'm reading Gentle Conquest, an interesting early Balogh -- she hadn't really found her voice, I think, but her ideas and characters were very fresh. And just starting Seducing the Enemy by Noelle Adams.

Had to DNF a review book- Once a SEAL by Anne Elizabeth. Horrid writing with no flow. 60 pages in, I still didn't know what the conflict was that made the marriage so remarkable, was suprised a SEAL was casual about plunking down for dinner for 10 at the Hotel del Coronado ($$$$) after an earlier comment about how his bride held an outdoor wedding on the beach where the SEALs train because she needed to save money. Oh yes, and the groom and groomsmen had been called out on a mission and were hoping to make it back in time for the wedding, so they took a helicopter to the wedding site. However, instead of simply landing the helo on the lawn or on the road near the beach ceremony, the helo dropped the wedding men off in the ocean so they could swim to the shore for the wedding.

Seriously.
