Picked up Allison Brennan's Sudden Death and man it has been a riveting book so far. She is a NTM author and if this pacing and good writing keeps up, it won't be my last. Anybody else read her? and if so what are your favs of hers?

I haven't read her yet but I did pick up a couple of her books at the library sale. I still haven't catalogued them and I'm not sure where they fit in her backlist. I'm happy to read the positive comments.

I'm again wobbling all over the TBR pile. I have 3 books started, 2 are excellent, 1 pretty good, but I'm spending too much time online.

I broke down and bought Austin yesterday at Target.  Stupid, since I'd probably have it posted to my WL by next week, but I think I just want to get that series over with.  It's pretty much just like Tate and Garrett.

I'm still reading Sharp Edges by JAK - not my favorite by her but it's ok - just been too busy/tired to read for a while.

I recently got Tempting Evil (Prison Break, Bk 2) :: Allison Brennan on sale, its the only one of hers I have, I think. I don't know if they have to be read in order.

Still plowing my way through game books, the one I started this morning is the best so far, Falling by DW Marchwell. If these people around here will live me along long enough, I'll finish it and start the next today.

I started The English Witch, one of Loretta Chase's early books. It's quite engaging.

I am finishing up NIGHT MOVES by Heather Graham.   Then it will be on to book #3, TEMPT ME AT TWILIGHT, in the Hathaway series by Lisa Kleypas.

Thanks Brenda, I am going to get some more of hers, but since she is NTM, I am going tol read everything in order.

 

Sudden Death was awesome! If you are looking for some good romantic suspense then this book may be for you. The suspense takes the first 1/2 and then once the romance kicks in between Megan and Jack it is hot!

I am trying to speed-read through The Search by Nora Roberts.  I'm leaving town tomorrow for a month(!) and it's a library book, so I need to finish it tonight.  Talk about pressure!  lol

I just finished The English Witch by Loretta Chase. Much better than Isabella - almost on par with her later books.

Finished Falling, and just had to take a break from all the MM. So I started one of my keepers. I can't believe I've had it since 08 and haven't read it yet. That's because I play too many games, hence always reading for other people! So the book I started is The Man Within by Lora Leigh, Breeds #2.

I liked the man in Lyric's Cop, he was so deliciously forceful!

hee hee no drooling over Jory STrong's men ladies! I prefer Dante and Benito in Calista's Men myself though I could certainly  handle whats his name in Cady's Cowboy. Lyric's Cop would be too much for me to handle I think! she was able to give it back

I'm still reading Sharp Edges by JAK! the same book..almost forgot the storyline it's been going on for so long..moving stuff and tossing stuff getting ready for carpet installers and some repair guys so busy busy busy!

Finally got Savor the Moment. It's not very big on the romance at the moment, but the wedding stuff is fun.

I am at the beach right now and I finished Married for a Month by Susan Mallery.  Pretty good read. 

I felt really dumb last night because I started a book on Saturday and left it at the last hotel!!!!  It was Lisa Marie Rice's Dangerous Secrets and I am kicking myself for leaving it behind.  I called them and they said that they found it so I am going to swing back by on my way home tomorrow.  It's about 60 miles altogether out of my way, but it's worth it.

Just finished The Bridegroom by Linda Lael Miller.  Just ok for me.  I wasn't feeling any of the characters.

Going to try Dakota Cowboy by Linda Ford next.

Just finished Love In The Afternoon by Lisa Kleypas. I really enjoyed it.

Lastnight I finished Almost Perfect by Susan Mallery which was good too.

I finally was able to break through my issue (I wasn't interested) in Brad Thor's State of the Union. Scot Harvath is just such a hottie! :-)  I am going to pick up Robard's Shameless next.
