Ohh Melanie,
I love her books, have you read her Highlander series? They are soooooo steamy if you like that sort of thing. Her Fever books don't have the same romance feel that the Highlander series does but I really like the Fever series too.

I'm a HUGE fan of Moning's Highlanders, too, Debbie! I'm still all disgruntled that she's writing the new ones, but that just shows how immature I am, no? :smileyhappy:

Darn, I'm going to have to read that one again soon, and I have sooo many books in the TBR pile!

Hi Becke - I'm with you - time to reread !  I loved the Highlander series and I like the Fever series, but just not as much. I haven't gotten to the newest one it's in the TBR pile - once I finish the Outlander rereads....

Re: What BOOK are you reading now?

I'm reading Wicked Game by Jeri Smith-Ready.  Next up...probably a historical romance.  Maybe I'll start Mary Balogh's latest trilogy.  Or is it four books now?

Re: What BOOK are you reading now?

*sigh* Wicked Game is another book in my TBR pile, which grew by about 6 books today. I thought the new Tessa Dare was in there, but that must come out next week. Got two Karen Hawkins books, two Elizabeth Adler (recommended by someone here, I think), Christina Dodd's new one and Chosen to Die by Lisa Jackson. Just finished Hank Phillippi Ryan's FACE TIME, but I'll probably read one of these new ones next and then read AIR TIME after that.

Re: What BOOK are you reading now?

I couldn't decide which of the new books to read, so I pulled one from the TBR pile. After I finished playing with Eloisa's paper dolls, it was already late. I thought I'd go to bed and read for a few minutes. You'd think I'd know better by now -- by the time sleep finally won the battle, I had only 100 pages to go. Great book, and now I'm going to have to add more of hers to my TBR pile!

Re: What BOOK are you reading now?

Becke - I had readBehind Closed Doors by McKenna and liked it but I did not care for Tasting Fear at all. I have actually given it away already. I have a couple others by her in my TBR pile but I'm waiting on them since I was so disappointed in Tasting.

Re: What BOOK are you reading now?

I liked it, but I liked her series books better -- maybe because I'd come to know those characters over a long period of time, so I was really invested in them.

Melanie, I love Karen's books also. I have read some of the Highlanders books and loved them. I just started Darkfever. I am really liking it a lot.  I am looking forward to reading all her books. She writes really great romance and paranormal books.

[ Edited ]

Debbie, I have just started Darkfever. I am really liking it. I have read some of Karen's Highlander books also.

 

I went shopping yesterday and I a got six new paperback romances. My poor TBR pile is growing faster by the day.

 

I  just wish I had more time to read and stitch, but alas I must work to pay the bills and of course buy more books and stitching projects.

 


You can see what books I got one the romantic read as a new topic or message.

 

Talk to you soon.

Re: What BOOK are you reading now?

I don't know if I bought this one or if it was one of the freebies at RWA -- I'm hoping it was the latter, because when I pulled it out of the TBR pile last night, I realized that I'd already read it. It was good, though, and a fast read so I just read it again. She has a new book coming out in December, too. Aak! I don't know where the "Add Product" key has gone! Anyway, the book is Christie Craig's DIVORCED, DESPERATE AND DELICIOUS. Good for anyone who wants humor with their romance.

I just started Obsidian Prey by Jayne Ann Krentz writing as Jayne Castle it's really good.

I also really tried to read Edge of Midnight by Shannon McKenna, but I just couldn't finish it. someone recommended it to me as Erom, but I didn't like it.

Debbie - As I understand it, today it's just a beta test of the new design. I've heard some things aren't working -- the personal messages, the "add product" links. I don't think any of these are gone for good, but looks like today is going to be interesting.

Re: What BOOK are you reading now?

dhaupt, tell me who wrote Lord Perfect.  I would like to get that book, sounds good. I just finished the following:

Darkfever (Fever Series #1) 

 I really liked this book. I am going to read the next one in the series, Bloodfever.

 

Thorn in My Heart 

 I an reading this book now. I got it from my library. It is set in Irland in 1760's. There are four the the series that I know of.

 

Blindman's Bluff (Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus Series #18) 

 I just got this from my library. I am anxious to see what is going on with Peter and Rina. I love these characters.,

 

 An Echo in the Bone (Outlander Series #7) 

 Just think on the 22nd the next book in the Outlander series will be out. I ordered it and can't wait for it to come. I will need to read most of my library books so I can spend time reading it., It will be really great to see what Jamie and Clair are up to. What a great love story they have. Who would not like to go throught time and find that one person that you are meant to spent your life with. Boy, what a dream that would be. :smileyvery-happy::smileysurprised:

 

Are you going to buy An Echo in the Bone?

 

I think many of us wil be reading this book once it is out. We will be talking about it for a while I think.

 

It would be nice if Diana would come and talk to us about her books and this book. Do any of you think she would do that?

 

Happy reading everyone.:smileyvery-happy::smileywink:
