Eloisa's columns are always dangerous to my bank account. Luckily, I've already ready A KISS AT MIDNIGHT and LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON, so I only have two books to buy after reading this column!

Re: eloisa's column

I just bought my first book by Eloisa James today. I hope that I enjoy it! I love the story of cinderella so I can't wait to see what kind of twist Eloisa puts on the story.

A Kiss at Midnight

Re: eloisa's column

Lexa, you've chosen a wonderful book for your introduction to Eloisa James.  I've read her entire back list and I think A Kiss at Midnight is one of the best she's ever written.  I hope you enjoy!

Re: eloisa's column

Here's Eloisa's most recent column:

 

Think Pink

http://bnreview.barnesandnoble.com/t5/Reading-Romance/Think-Pink/ba-p/3522

 

 

 

Her column reminded me of a book I LOVED:

 

 

 

All or Nothing 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Synopsis

Witty, wonderful, and quirky romance from the USA Today bestselling author!

 

Jen Maitland never had any use for handsome guys with easy charm until she met Zach. He's the perfect fake date to end her mother's matchmaking scheme before it starts. The only problem is that Zach isn't as predictable as he appears...

 

Zach Coxwell hates commitment, but loves a challenge. Like the pretty bar waitress who turned him down flat for a date-only to invite him to her family's Thanksgiving dinner. Zach knows he can make Jen smile, and he's betting that he can unravel her mysteries.

 

Despite Thanksgiving dinner becoming a familial nightmare for Jen, Zach has the time of his life and finds that Jen may be worth a commitment after all-even if he has to convince her by any means necessary.

 

There's a review of it here:

 http://www.romancejunkiesreviews.com/artman/publish/contemporary/All_or_Nothing.shtml

 

I loved this whole series - I think it's only available used, but it's well worth a read!

Burning Up 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whew - usually Eloisa's columns break the bank for me, but this time I own several of the books she mentions already. I absolutely loved THE IRON DUKE (Meljean Brook's story at the end of BURNING UP is connected to it) and I'm completely hooked on the Emma Wildes' series, too. The book Eloisa writes about is third in a series - read all of them!

 

 

 

The Iron Duke 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our Wicked Mistake

Mary Bly is highly esteemed in her own right:

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eloisa_James#Academic_Works_as_Mary_Bly

 

This is Eloisa's current column: http://bnreview.barnesandnoble

.com/t5/Reading-Romance/Clueless-Teens-in-Love/ba-p/2869

 

See also: http://bnreview.barnesandnoble.com/t5/In-the-Margin/Eloisa-James-Announces-a-Giveaway/ba-p/2874

 

I seem to recall a column where she reviewed a book where breast cancer was a topic. God knows, sometimes it seems half the women I know are breast cancer survivors, but I don't think Eloisa/Mary has mentioned this.
