I just finished A Question of Time  a debut by Joanne Renaud. Have kind of mixed feelings about it, but the ending was good.

I finished a Christmas anthology that I had to read for a review - All I Want for Christmas is a Duke.  It was two NTM authors and I really was suprised at how much I liked it, both for the fact that I've never read them before AND it was an anthology. 

Now I'm reading Mystery Man by Kristen Ashley, and ok, you guys got me hooked.  I FORCED myself to stop reading and go to bed at 3am last night!  Good Lord.

I loved Mystery Man!

I'm reading Heart of Danger: A Ghost Ops Novel by Lisa Marie Rice. I'm about a third of the way in but it's interesting so far.

I'm reading Just for Now by Rosalind James.  I like the hero and I like the heroine, but sadly, I don't like them TOGETHER.  Should finish this tonight.

not reading anything right now - not feeling good and too much to do and a quilt to finish (and here I am surfing the net...) I did cave and order Mystery Man but will probably read some other ebooks first just depends on what I'm in the mood for. I just finished Rhonda Nelson's latest Blaze - His First Noelle- hot and good as most of hers are for me! that was a few days ago though...

Reading The Ladies Man by Lorraine Heath. Unusual and charming hero. I get the feeling this was supposed to start a series, but I don't think she wrote more.

ETA -- it turns out the be one of those series with mulptiple authors, which explains the truly bizarre premise. I don't think I've even heard of any of the other authors.

I finished Motorcycle Man, and all I can say is the motorcycle men in my area look/act nothing like Tack. Which is a damn shame. 

I finished a few m/ms by Marie Sexton over the weekend: Strawberries for Dessert (Coda, Bk 4) and a short that takes place before it, Putting Out Fires. I'm almost finished with Paris A to Z. All have been excellent. I love how she revisits characters.

I finished the last of Kristen Ashley's Colorado Mountain Man series last night.  Since I am completely hooked on KA now, I think I'll move on to the Rock Chick series next.

Just bought The Duchess War, but am not sure I'm up to Milan's complexity right now. Not sure what to start.

Read The Courtship by Grace Burrowes. Maybe it was low blood sugar/bad mood but I thought it was just terrible.

Just finished Voyager and am determined that I will finish this series in 2013. Loved it! Also finished Courtney Milan's A Kiss for Midwinter and I loved it. CM is such a talented writer and I can't get enough of these Sinister stories.

I finished Twice Bitten and it was the best of the series yet so far. I loved it!! I am sooooo hooked. I've read some scary reviews on the next book.

Keri, I love CM too! I just got Unraveled as an ebook loan from our library. Been waiting on that one forever!! I'm leaving it on my wishlist because I'm pretty sure I'll want to keep a copy. Just started Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor by Lisa Kleypas.

Finished Gold Ring of Betrayal by Michelle Reid. Was not in the best mood for a child-angst plot, but it was entertaining.

I started Desire Unchained (Demonica, Bk 2). I'm kinda lost though. Should've gone back and did some catch-up with the first book.

I bought Rock Chick, but also bought Jennifer Ashley's MacKenzie Christmas story.  It was really sweet, and I got a big dose of all the fabulous MacKenzie brothers.  I started Rock Chick last night, so far it's a slow start, so I hope it turns out as well as all the other KA's I've read.

I love that series, but the first book was definitely my least favorite. They get better. :)

Ditto on that. The first Rock Chick didn't hold my interest. I had to make myself finish it. But the second was much better. That's as far as I've gotten so far.

I just finished Christmas Eve at Friday Harbor. I liked it. It was really short and seemed to be missing something though. Not sure what's next. I'm so indecisive lately!! I'm picking up Hard Bitten but I'm not ready to read it yet. I'm scared. The reviews said something really terrible happens. And I'm not ready for that to be something about Ethan, so I'll put that off for a little bit.
