Finished The Many Sins of Lord Mackenzie and it was great! I have nothing but praise for it.

Read some more of Raphael/Parish, it's good. I'm on the first story, by Laura Wright.

Yesterday I read Kiss of Danger by Deborah Cooke.  It's a novella from her dragon series with one of the dragons tooth warriors.  I wanted to love it but it just didn't do anything for me.

Now I"m reading Merciless by Lori Armstrong.

Reading Dream Lake by Lisa Kleypas. I like it, very sweet. Often literally. ;-)

I'm going to start Winterbourne by Susan Carroll next, for the TBR challenge "recommended read."

Sherry, I just finished LA's Mercy Kill and boy was it good...she is such a kick-a$$ heroine. Love her and Dawson together. I have Merciless on my TBR, but going to hold off a bit. Finished Miranda Davis's The Baron's on again off again Betrothal...or something like that. I really liked it, but not as much as the first one. It dragged a bit in the middle. I also finished a Harlequin Duet book, but only read How the Sheriff was won, the Anne Castle contribution...it was cute. I am jonesing for a new IAD book, so I reread Lothaire and Kiss of a Demon King...man I love me some horned demons and red eyed vampires...sigh. Think next I will pick up Lori Armstrong's Snow Blind I am in the mood for some smart mouth Julie Collins and some sexy Martinez.

I read Creed by Kristen Ashley over the weekend. Loved it of course. Creed was just about perfect. Sylvie was a tougher heroine than KA's usual, and she kinda caught me off guard in the beginning. I know a couple people said the flashbacks bothered them, I didn't have that problem, though there were times that it bothered me that I didn't feel like I knew everything that I should have. If that makes any sense.

I just finished At Grave's End by Jeaniene Frost (the 3rd in the series). I liked it, of course, because I loved this series. I feel so bad for Tate, I really like him, and I hope he finds someone soon. I'm not sure what's up next. Biting Cold should be coming in the mail soon and I know there's a series book I have on loan I need to read too.

I started Rock Chick Rescue, but then I didn't have my Nook with me last night so I also started Shayla Black's Mine To Hold.    I hate having two books going.

Nothing on my TBR has been appealing to me lately.  I think it's in need of a major overhaul/purging.  But I started That Thing Called Love by Susan Andersen, and it is surprisingly good.  I have liked some of her books quite a lot,and others fell flat for me, so I'm glad this is one of the better ones.  Now I will have to go see if any of the other books in this series have come out yet.  I also bought Kleypas' Crystal Cove yesterday when I was at Target, so looking forward to that one after this.

I finished Kiss of a Demon King and really enjoyed it. Now I'm reading The Darkest Surrender and am loving it so far.

Started Crystal Cove -- I have it from the library and want to see if I want to buy it while it's still on sale. Interesting hero, part Japanese.

I finished Mine to Hold by Shayla Black.  It ranks up there at the top of this series for me.... I loved it.  Or rather, I loved Tyler.  What a strong, sexy, caring, alpha but not a jerk, incredible hero.  The suspense was a little mediocre..... you could see where this story was going from a mile away.  But Tyler and Del's love story?  Fantastic!

I got through The Darkest Surrender and I think it may be my favorite of the series. I've moved on to The Darkest Seduction and I'll be caught up.

I read Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison. I liked it. I can see that the series has a lot of potential.

Now I'm reading The Mighty Storm by Samantha Towle. It's similar, initially anyway, to Fury by MIchelle Coons in that the h is a music journalist and interviewing the band. However, that's where the similarities end. This is written so much better, it's not really even fair to compare the two. And I'm only 8% into this one.

Today I read Wolf Nip by Vivian Arend. Quick, angst-free little read.  I enjoyed it.

I finished That Thing Called Love by Susan Andersen.  It was ok.  The storyline was pretty good, but what bothered me in this one is the 13 year old kid.  I don't mind having some of the story from a kid's POV, but geez, lose the supposed teen slang already.  Everything was "bitchin'", "kickin'", "rockin'" or "dope".  Wait..bitchin'??  Sorry..as someone who actually WAS a teenager in CA during the Valley Girl era, I personally haven't heard anyone use that term in approximately 30 years unless they were making fun of something, so I don't know, maybe Ms. Andersen needs a new editor.  Well, the rest of the story was good.  I thought the subject of the hero being a teenaged father who didn't know how to handle the responsibility was handled pretty well, at least as far as his coming to grips with that 13 years later.

I'm starting Crystal Cove next..can't wait to get into that one!

I'm reading Crystal Cove now.  I haven't gotten very far but I have to say, she's got her work cut out for her with this hero to make him likeable.

Really Sherri?  Hmm..I had my doubts with the one in the last book too, but that one worked out pretty well- hope this one does too!

Well like I said, I haven't read far.  He just seems so dark.

I finished Sweet Dreams by Kristen Ashley then read a harlequin desire by Maureen Child - the King Next Door. enjoyed it and just started the first one in that series(figures I always seem to start out of order!) may hold off on it though just depends on my mood when I have time to read again. may decide on Rock chick or the library book I want to pick up after work - a mystery.
