Started (and finished) Heidi Betts novel Knock Me for a Loop.  If you love the Deirdre Martin hockey series (which I did) you will probably like this book.  I did get a bit annoyed witht he heroine because she was a bit self absorbed and downright mean is some places, but she did grow and change her ways as the story progressed.  It appears to be the last book in a series by Betts and I haven't read the first two, but I still enjoyed it.

I started Annie's Song in the middle of the night and I know how I will be spending this snowy Sunday!  I am just to the part where he is explaining what pregnant is to her.  This is a tearjerker for sure.

I finished Black Hills by Nora Roberts.  I couldn't put it down.  Absolutely loved it!  For a while I was totally turned off of Roberts because all of her books were becoming the same.  I have to say, though, that the last few I've read have been different.  This one was fabulous.  Wonderful characters, great setting, believable suspense, etc. 

Now I'm reading Moonlight Road by Robyn Carr.

Reading The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley. Its interesting so far but not the keeper I had hoped for. Maybe it will improve.

I fnished McKettrick's Luck and am now reading Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner.  It's pretty decent, though it hasn't pulled me in like her first couple of books did.

Pamela, you'll just love Annie's Song! Great book.

I finished Down in Texas.....unremarkable. I'll be starting No Reservations by Lauren Dane and Megan Hart next.

Over the past few days I've read:

Breakfast In Bed by Robin Kaye. It was pretty good - Romeo Romeo is stil my favorite of the 3. The heroine started getting on my nerves. She had a chip on her shoulder that just  wouldn't go away.

Moonlight Road by Robyn Carr. An enjoyable read. The romance in this one is between Aiden Riordan &  Erin Foley. Erin is older sister to Marcie from Virgin River Christmas. Marcie & Ian are in Moonlight Road too.

Yule Be Mine by Lori Foster. It was ok for an easy read between chores this weekend. I believe all the stories have been published before in other anthologies

Sin by Sharon Page. First book for me by this author. Definitely erotic but with a story to go with it. Will be giving some more of her books a try

I just finished reading Pleasure of a Dark Prince by Kresley Cole (her latest Immortals after Dark) and it was fabulous!  And then she put in some teasers for the next book that have been all excited and anxious for the Sept 2010 release date.  I'm kind of excited again because I've had a string of great books to read and I want it to continue! lol

Perhaps I'll try Madeline Hunter's Ravishing in Red since I hear it's pretty good.

I started one of the library books a few days ago but haven't been reading the past couple - Love FInds You in Miracle, Kentucky. I haven't gotten too far b ut think it'll be pretty good from reading the back cover. May also read The Courtship of the Vicar's Daughter though since I'll be on night shift and it may still be busy at work I may go back to the love inspired series I've been reading since those are easy to follow. also kinda in the mood for a silhouette book I got a while back that deals with hockey (yep I caught the end of the olympics LOL!)

now I think I'll try putting in a movie and sewing.

I was getting a little worried about you too.  Saw you on Goodreads a couple weeks ago & figured you were ok though,

I'm okay but something's been going on w/ my family all yr which means lots of trips and limited internet access. if i have time on my hands, i'll do the forum and blog rounds. If not, I just answer email and record my reading on goodreads.

Over the weekend I read Dead By Midnight by Beverly Barton and Promise Me Tonight by Sara Lindsey.

I enjoyed both books.  However, Dead by Midnight was a bit confusing at first with all of the characters introduced.  It didn't take me long to realize I should have read a previous book but darned if I can figure out which one.  Maybe someone here knows what it is.

Promise Me Tonight was a fun book to read.  Emotional rollercoaster.  Laughing one minute.. tears the next.

Like Hank and Chloe a lot. Worried that reading the sequel will spoil it for me.

I love Nalini Singh's Psy/Changeling series, but I was reluctant to read the angel/vampire stuff for a long time. I just did not think it would appeal to me. Now everyone is raving about how great the latest one is so I got the first one from the library. Well, I love it. It's fabulous. Of course. :)

I hope things work out with your family situation, Seton. Good to see you back around here, though. :-)

I finished No Reservations by Lauren Dane and Megan Hart. It was OK, I liked the back-and-forth between Kate and Leah and the two couples, and the relationship troubles were written well. Lots and lots (and lots) of sex, in every position and every place imaginable, and not a ton of story, but it was still a fun read.

I'll be starting Woman on the Run by Lisa Marie Rice next. I've read one of hers before (Dangerous Secrets) and really liked it, so, fingers crossed....
