Finished reading Lauren Dane's  Coming Undone, the sex scenes were hot and plentiful, but for me they couldn't save the story line. To me there were to many weak points in the book. Although Brody was a gorgeous man and I wanted to eat him up.

I'm reading The Rancher's Reunion by Tina Radcliffe. It's a love inspired by a new author I heard about. I didn't realize the hero's 'secret' is that he might have Huntington's..arghh not so sure 'bout happy endings when that's involved..this will make the 2nd book I've read this  year with a hero with Huntington's..small world...not really into the story yet but I'm tired and distracted with work. wish work would leave me alone! I had also started another book yesterday but thought I'd wait a bit on it and go ahead and read this one since a blog is talking about it right now.

I have had zero reading time, between my kids being home and Thanksgiving and my mom & her boyfriend coming for a week and a road trip yesterday.... <sigh>  I started something but I can't even remember.  Oh - Bride and the Beast or something like that by Teresa Medeiros.

I finished A Nascar Holiday a couple days ago and moved on to A Nascar Holiday 2. They are ok i suppose. Not a whole lot of action. A bit vanilla for my tastes, lol.

I want to read holiday themed romances right now in honor of the season and all, but most of the ones ive accumulated are anthologies and i dont really care for them.

Thanks Susanna. Ugh. I was worried that was the case, lol. Hopefully the full length ones by Britton are a bit more sexy though. Im trying to get that whole series together and im still missing two of them.

Keri, I'm not a big fan of Lauren Dane either. 

Melissa seems like I read somewhere that NASCAR "mandated" they couldn't be too racy because they are a "family sport".

I'm about halfway through Worth Any Price by Lisa Kleypas and oh boy am I loving it!

I agree, that Lauren Dane just didn't do it for me either.

So I joined Harlequin's Reader Service for their Blaze line and to my delight I received my first shipment on Saturday.  I am going to start Jill Monroe's Sealed With A Kiss (January 2011) tonight.  I am glad they sent the January books and not the December books because I have already read some of those.

Finished up When Blood Calls this weekand and finally picked up Wicket Intentions by Elizabeth Holt.  I know there's been mixed reviews on it but so far its okay.  I've liked her other 2 series so am hoping this one is just as good once I get into it.

Wicked Intentions is a really good one, Pauline. Although I've noticed people who haven't read much of Hoyt's other stuff seem to be more likely to like it - it's a lot better than most of the stuff out there just maybe not quite as excellent as some of Hoyt's other books.

Pauline, I really liked Wicked Intentions and can't wait for the next one. I have started Kelsey Cole's If You Deceive. She is a NTM author and I am not very far into as of yet. It came highly recommended, so we shall see.

I'm still on The First Love Cookie Club by Lori Wilde.  Didn't get much reading time over the holiday, and what time I did get was spent rereading part of HP#7, so I could remember what was in it before I went to see the movie.  I'm almost halfway through First Love Cookie Club, and I don't know, it's moving kind of slow for me.  Not sure I will need to run out and get the other books in this series.

After this I'm thinking I might pick up A Creed Country Christmas by LLM.  I also have Just The Sexiest Man Alive by Julie James burning a hole on my TBR too, so will have to see what I feel like when I finish the one I'm on.

I still haven't gotten any reading done... but I just wanted to chime in because I'm so excited.  My mom just ordered a Nook for me for my birthday/Christmas gift.  Woohooooooooooo!

I'm bringing all my library books back this morning, fadoodled around with a bunch of my books just not able to land on something new to read, eventually settled on Taylor Smith's RANDOM ACTS. Not what I'd planned to read but it's starting out good.

I hope I can control myself at the library when I return the books. I always bring home a couple that look good, AND can't resist the sale cart in the lobby.

I finished The Rancher's Reunion by Tina Radcliffe - a new Love Inspired author. I guess mine came from someone in the mail order club. It was good..enjoyed it a lot but it wasn't one I could read between work stuff so read it when I got home, slept, then finished it when I couldn't get back to sleep at 1 am! It's out in January I think along with one by Audra Harders I'm wanting to read - Rocky Mountain Hero I think is the title. figures the next one by Radcliffe isn't til October next year..sad

not sure what I'll read now..have a ton of library books.I ahve the same problem as Gail except luckily the branch I visit the most usually has a lousy selection of FOL books though I've succumbed a few times!
