Reading Candice Proctor's The Last Knight and it has been very readable. Also reading CL Bevill's Bubba and the Dead Woman and it has been a cute mystery. I didn't realize that I had left Outlander at work until I got home on Friday. So I will continue that one tomorrow.

Reading Jezebel's Blues by Barbara Samuel. Kind of a cliched set-up but she has such a good way with words, it's working for me.

I picked up Haunting Beauty by Erin Quinn.  I'm not really feeling it, but it's been on my TBR forever and I never feel like picking it up.  lol   Figured I'd give it a try.  Hopefully it hooks me.

I finished Call Me Wild, and quite liked it.  I had to suspend some disbelief, because seriously, no man is THAT perfect.  But overall it was pretty good.

Next up is, I think, Charmed by His Love by Chapman.

I read A Crack In Forever by Jeannie Brewer. Oh wow, it was so incredibly sad, but so, so good.

I'll be starting Bound and Determined by Alexa Snow and Jane Davitt. A little m/m BDSM!

I finished KA's Rock Chick Renegade and LOVED it. Vance.....wow. Also finished a very blah anthology, Fever-Hot Dreams, and just started Donna Kauffman's A Great Kisser this morning.

Reading Show No Mercy by Cindy Gerard  which is starting out very good and Shadow Stand by Sarah McCarty which I haven't gotten too far into yet. Still slogging through Pursued by Evangeline Anderson.

I got some oldies (published in the 80's) in line to read... finished Too Much Too Soon (by Jacqueline Briskin). 

Currently reading Dreams Are Not Enough, same author.

Finished Jezebel's Blues, it was lovely. Now reading Marie Force's Line of Scrimmage, which is good except I keep feeling a lot of sympathy for the "other man" who is really being treated very badly. I don't seem to be doing well with Marie Force! But it's for a challenge so I'll finish it.

Willa, stick with Line of Scrimmage, it all works out if you can ignore a huge timeline error.  I actually enjoyed that one, but I've hated every other Marie Force book I've tried.

Finished Jayne Castle's The Lost Night and it was a 3 star. I don't even think that the heroine even told the hero she loved him there at the end and I never really felt their romance. I should give it up, but the series is like a pair of old slippers and my reading crack and not quite ready to give up yet.

I did like Line of Scrimmage - don't think I noticed the timeline error, but stuff like that tends to get by me. It was kind of similar to Everyone Loves a Hero but so much better. Now reading this world's most wangsty HP, The Dark Side of Desire. Oy.  Planning to start Kathleen Eagle's The Night Remembers next, which I hear is excellent. I have the sequel from netGalley but want to read this one first.

I'm reading A Lover Like No Other, the second in the Pennyroyal Green series. Liking it so far. Glad that this one is good, just because I enjoyed the first one so much. cheeky

I am about 3/4 of the way through Haunting Beauty.  What a weird book.  People are traveling through time and coexisting with their earlier selves (multiple times... seeing themselves at numerous younger ages), people are dead at one point but not another, too much mystery and NO answers.  I have the next in the series but if it's anything like this one, I doubt I'll read it.  It's not BAD... but I'm pretty much strictly a romance reader and this is not your typical romance at all.  Way too "out there" for me.

Michelle, that sounds like something my husband would enjoy.

Reading The Night Remembers, What I did for a Duke and New Year's Kiss. The last is fairly short, but it's hard to find private time to read erotica in this house lately!

Also listening to Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Excellent reading.

Continue to read Outlander as well as picked up Tessa Dare's A Week To Be Wicked and I am really enjoying it. I also read Tim Down's Wonders Never Cease and it was a good book about a little girl who sees angel's and how impersonating an angel can really get you on God's bad side. It wasn't preachy, just a feel good book.

Finally finished A Great Kisser. Although the story was good, the length and wordiness were a slow form of torture. Glad it's over and done with. Now I've started Rock Chick Revenge

Well I finished that book yesterday - Captive in the Dark. It was really good! I guess it's actually part 1 of 2. It was very dark, but very moving. There were times I was cringing because it was just so difficult to read - on an emotional level. These characters are and were going through things that I just couldn't relate to in my mind.

I finished A Week to be Wicked and that was such an awesome book! I loved Minerva and Colin as a couple and going to go pick up the rest of the series.
