I finished Stephanie Lauren's All About Love and that one was ok. I am going to read Chillingworth's book and then I think that I am done with this series.

Finishing up an old Doreen Owens Malek SD, NATIVE SEASON. Not quite a 'awesome' as when I first read it, but it's still pretty darn good, even with the dated-ness.

Not sure what I'll start next. Also listening to #4 Stephanie Plum on audio.

I finished the Fifty Shades trilogy today and I have to say, I liked it. I'm not sure what's next, possibly the fourth Demonica book.

I finished The Wicked Ways of a Duke. Liked it.

Now I'm reading The Darkest Night by Gena Showalter. It's the first in the Lords of the Underworld series. And the first book I've read by her.

Four day weekend off from work so I was able to finish The Savage King by Michelle Pillow  and Secret Submission by Diana Hunter which was also good (not a life style that I would embrace but was interesting). Next up is Initiation by Ruth D. Kearce.

Im about halfway through Find You in the Dark. Its not a healthy relationship at all, but im enjoying the story and holding out hope that they....he...gets some serious help. And that she's strong enough to stick by him through it. I know theres going to be a second one though, so I dont look for everything to be resolved in this installment.

I am almost finished with The Perfect Hope.  I'm not in love, but it's good.

Finished Her Russian Billionaire. It was okay -- more crude than hot, I thought. Not sure what to read next, because I have a review of _the Wedding Fling_ to write and don't want to get distracted. Guess I should finish up something from my Currently Reading shelf.

Got through quite a few this weekend:

The Rogue: Settler's Mine 6 — Disappointed. I was hoping for more from McTavish's story.

First Blood — I only read Erin McCarthy's and Meljean Brook's stories. The Brook story was excellent...I think it served as an intro to a series, which I will now have to look into.

Caressa's Knees — Love love love Anabel Joseph. Caressa was a mess at times, but I loved the story.

I also read a short story by Sarah McCarty, A Bit of Sass, which was fluff. Now I'm reading Alison Kent's No Limits.

I know, me too Ashley, I finished it and wanted more IAD right then. KC is such a huge talent. I am about midway through Dragonfly in Amber and so far it has held my interest. I just wish it wasn't so huge!! My 400 goal is coming up fast and this one book will eat 3 books up, plus I have Voyager still to go...aye carumba!  Just breath...I am a Zen master (freak)  when it comes to reading...I can meet this goal.

Reading Still Life With Shapeshifter by Sharon Shinn. Heard from many people that this one is better than the first, but still seems to be primarily about obsessive love, to me.

I decided to finally read as many of the Malloren books of Jo Beverly's as I could find.  I like Rothgar alot.  He is not your everyday Hero.  But my favorite thing about this series is that the Heroines are interesting and feisty and unpredicable.

Faith by Lori Copeland was a lesson in frustration - C minus at best.

Melissa, I read the Santa book and thought it was terrible.  Hope you like it.

Currently reading Redemption by Sharon Cullen.  It's keeping my interest.

I just finished a Love Inspired by Ruth Logan Herne(one of my fave authors in this line) and am now reading His First Noelle by Rhonda Nelson(a Harlequin Blaze) so yep I'm pretty varied LOL!

Rebecca I wnat to read the Shades of Grey trilogy eventually - I'm trying to get stuff on ebook now(which is why i never can remember the titles once I'm reading!) and it just bugs me so much that the ebooks are the same or more than actual print books esp when the print titles are available used. my libraries have some decent selections but still not everything is available.

Reading American Dreamer by Theresa Weir and not liking it at all. Unpleasant characters, unpleasant situation. Not sure how much longer I'll hold out. Also listening to The Witness, which continues to be excellent. Very good audio.

Finished The Darkest Night and I mostly liked it. Enough that I want to read the second book anyway.

Now I'm reading The Sexiest Man Alive by Julie James. She's a ntm author too. I'm only 20 or so pages in, but I like it already. She's got spunk. And he's an ass. So, I can't wait to see her knock him down a peg or two.

Susanna, I wish they were lendable. After about 200 pages it got really good and worth reading.

I finished the McKenna book. It was okay, I just didn't like the H much.

now I'm reading Undressing Mercy by Deanna Lee.

I am over halfway through Dragonfly in Amber and really liking it. Just wish I could get some major reading time to finish it. I did read Shalvis's Under the Mistletoe and Suzanne Enoch's Good Lord Hunting and they were both sweet, SEs was very satisfying for being so short. I really liked it.
