I have too many books started, need to buckle down and finish something! Halfway through Wild Fire by Christine Feehan, maybe I'll concentrate on that one.

I need to finish up Girl of Nightmares. It was going great but then the plot veered into an area I find very dull. Also reading Autism's False Prophets, very interesting and heartbreaking nonfiction.

OMG.....saddest freaking erotica ever.  LOVED it though.

I'm still reading Bad Attitude. Really good so far.

I'm reading Moon by Laurann Dohner.  It's my first by her... I hate starting in the middle of a series, but this is for a review, so a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.  LOL

I'm on a Carly Phillips kick this week... started reading The Bachelor yesterday, next will be The Playboy.

Our library has an on-going sale so I grabbed a couple of Nicole Jordan. I've never red any of her books but I'm excited on the ones I got.:)

Just finished Blackberry Summer by RaeAnne Thayne.  NTM author, and I enjoyed it.  Kind of like Robyn Carr without the sex.  Not sure what to start next.

I'm reading Claim Me by J Kenner. I told myself I wasn't going to read it because I thought the first book wasn't that great. I'm the eternal optimist though thinking surely this one will be better.

Guess what I'm reading... blush I honestly just wanted to finish the damn series and have it be over with at this point! Book is okay, though.

I can't read anything with a lot of sex right now, after reading about those 3 women in Ohio. I think a nice tame regency romance is what I'll start tomorrow.

Anne, I don't blame you one bit.  I'm doing my best to avoid the more in depth details, while rejoicing that they are saved.

I've been reading Christie Ridgway's Beach House No. 9, it's good, but I don't think I'm in the mood for the damaged hero (which seems to be the only kind she writes).  I re-read Moon Called (Mercy Thompson #1) yesterday, I may go back to that series for a complete re-read.

I know what you mean Anne- sick sick sick- I feel so much for women going through that nightmare - makes me hate hate hate the one(s) doing it - I just want to crawl under something and hide.

I tried another erotic romacne briefly last night - well went back to one I finished recently by celese sinclair - thought maybe I'd skim Dan's story and like him better but nope still think he's an a$$hole! will likely go back to my love inspired then will have to decide after that what to read.

I agree - just soooo glad they are safe now. God love em!

Well I read Mary Balogh's More Than A Mistress and found it meh. It was pretty good up until the point she actually became his mistress!  Go figure.

I finished Bad Attitude and freakin' loved it. I'm obsessed with anything KA Mitchell though. 

Now reading Second Chance Boyfriend by Monica Murphy and hoping I haven't forgotten everything from the first one.

I finished Moon by Laurann Dohner.  My first read by her, but I wouldn't mind reading some of the others in that series.  I enjoyed it.

Now I'm reading. Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Molly Cannon.

I finished Claim Me and thankfully it was better than the last one. Now I'm reading Ember X by Jessica Sorenson, a freebie I got yesterday.

I've started The Rake to Ruin Her by Julia Justiss. She's a good author.

I'm reading Olivia Cunning's Backstage Pass. Pretty good so far. I've always been a sucker for the quiet artistic types though. wink

i just finished Wishlist by KA Mitchell. It was a short one. Ntm author. Enjoyed it very much. Definitely be checking out more. Also finished up Warrior's Cross by Abigail Roux and it was awesome. Man, can that woman write!  Kiss of Crimson was pretty good. Very reminiscent of the BDB books, so I'm not sure that I'll be reading any more of those. I liked it, I just don't think I need to read two series that are so similar at the same time.
