Finished up Shana Galen's When you Give a Rake a Ruby and I really like this trilogy, looking foward to the next book. Decided to do a re-read of A Duke of her Own, since Three Weeks with Lady X, is Tobias's book which is Villiar's oldest natural son. I am excited about it. I know some didn't like Villiars, but I really did.

Carrying over from last week:

That he did, but I'm still rooting for Javier at this point. Or better yet, a menage relationship. devil

Yes, Please!!!!

 

I read Damaged 2 by HM Ward, today. It was fun.

Now reading Andrea at the Center by JP Kansas. It was gifted to me by the author in exchange for a review...unfortunately, so far, it seems a bit more porn than story.

Just finished Ruined by Rumor by Alyssa Everett. Kind of trad Regency style, I liked it. Have to see if I have her third book.

I read Heart of Darkness by Kira Brady.  It was terrible.  Can't recommend it.

I just started Nothing Denied by Jess Michaels. Surprisingly good so far. I'm liking it more than I did the previous two.

Reading a NTM author. A Wedding in Apple Grove by CH Admirand.  Not in love with it, but it was a paperback given to me so I thought I'd try to read it before passing it along to someone else.  The first chapter was 40 PAGES.

Thinking of starting Kristan Ashley's Play it Safe. I finished Cynthia Eden's Midnight Sin and really loved it. I also read Grace Burrowes Mary Fran and Matthew. I did start The Good, The Bad and The Witchy, but don't know that I am in the mood for a cozy.

I finished Bully, which was okay for a YA. Or would it be considered NA? Whatever. Now I'm doing a re read of Creed by KA and I'm also considering Play it Safe. It's one of the two of hers I haven't read.

I think technically bully would be YA since they're in high school, though the level of sex is more usual for NA.

I finished Handle with Care by Josephine Myles. Pretty good, not as polished as Junk. (Ironic! ;-) )

I've been reading a horror novel this week. Couldnt for the life of me decide on a romance, so I figured I'd switch it up a bit. Lovin' Richard Laymon!

A Wedding in Apple Grove by CH Admirand was a DNF.  Boring.

Keri you will love that KA story!

still reading Rock Chick Revolution by KA - liking Ally more but still don't undertand her doing this dangerous work knowing she doesn't know enough about it and how to defend herself..and I still think she prodded too much and got that librarian buried alive even though they claim it was her hot guy's father who did it...always did like Ren :-) hot AND rich! drool worthy x 2! I put the book aside right after starting becaue I knew I just wasn't in the mood and didn't want a good book ruined by my mood! think this will end up being a good read for me.

I read Rock Chick Renegade, and I think it might be my favorite one so far.  It was interesting because I wasn't really that impressed with Vance in the previous books, but ended up liking him a lot in this one.  Part of it might have been that I generally don't find long hair on guys that attractive, but guess I managed to overlook it this time.  I don't know what to read now.  I have the 2nd Razor Bay book by Susan Andersen, but what I really want to do is read the next Rock Chick book, which I don't have yet!  Suppose I should just read what I have though.

Thanks Sherry, I am going to start that this weekend, since I have a long one coming up. I am currently reading Midnight's Master by Cynthia Eden, the last book in this particular trilogy and for a level 10 demon Niol is so sexy! I am still reading on my cozy and have a Grace Burrowes that I just bought today. Darn Half-priced books is having a 20% off all books through Monday, so of course I had to go buy some more books, because the almost 600 that I currenly have to read, just isn't enough. :-)

I'm taking a short breather between The Raven Boys and The Dream Thieves with an HP, but I really seem to have gone off them lately. :-( Also just read Brockmann's Headed for Trouble -- it was pretty good, if you like the Troubleshooters.

I finished Midnight's Master and really liked that trilogy. I hit the motherload of books today. I went to HPBs and bought 5 books there, and when I got home my Amazon books had arrived and one PBS book had arrived. I was so happy!!! DH and DD got some clothes they were expecting, it was like Christmas here today via the UPS/USPS and FedEx! Gosh I have so much, I don't know where to start. But I got the first book in Anne Stuart's new series The House of Russel and it is really calling my name.
