I am reading (almost done) another older historical by Amanda Quick. For some reason I've been craving these historical's between my paranormals and contemporary stuff.

Next I'm planning to read the new Oprah pick- also an older book- The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet/t. I doubt it's a romance, but maybe there is some in it.




I don't remember if this has come up before, but isn't Amanda Quick a pen name for Jayne Ann Krentz? I know Jayne Castle is her pen name for paranormal genre books. Is this right?





Yes, Jayne Ann Krentz is her pen name for contemporary romance mystery type books.

Northen Lights

Next up for me is Northern Lights by Nora Roberts-- haven't read anything by her in ages. The DH recommended it to me :-). I'll be jumping on it the moment I shove the last of the T-day guests out of the door....

If you like Jennifer Crusie then you should read Rachel Gibson. She has a great series about 4 writer friends. I just finished the latest one, Tangled Up In You. She is one of my favorites

I liked that one a lot. I didn't really have any interest in Alaska (I grew up in Chicago, I've had enough cold weather to last me awhile) but I found the setting was a major part of the story. I think you'll like this.

Also, there's a newer author named Lani Diane Rich who writes very much in the vein of Jennifer Crusie. She's written some chick lit, too. There's a tremendous amount of warmth and humor in her books.

She's great! I met her at a writer's conference recently. I'd never read her books but I've been working my way through the list since I got back. She read an excerpt from her upcoming book, too, and I'm definitely going to get that as soon as it comes out.

You might like J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood or the vampire series by Kresley Cole or one of the other popular vampire series.


This is a little off topic but has anyone been watching the new vampire series on TV, "Moonlight?" If so what do you think of it. Jo

Right now I am reading the book called Voyager by Diana Gabaldon, it is the third one in her series and I absolutely love this series!!


I loved that series. I bought the first book on a whim because the cover caught my eye and when I read the jacket I thought the premise sounded interesting. I talked about Jamie & Claire to my family for months, just like they were old friends of ours! Jo

That Lori Foster sure is STEAMY!

Today I started reading an advanced copy of a book coming out in March called BLACK SHIPS. It's historical fantasy, if I had to describe it I'd call it a Red Tent set after the fall of Troy. I'll let you all know how it is!

Stephanie Lauren's Devil's Bride

I have heard so many good things about her books- on here- I picked up 2 this morning at the library. Devil's Bride is the older one (1998) so I will read it first. I usually read paranormal, but I've been taking a break from it and enjoying reading and rereading some of my old favorite Amanda Quick's, so I hope this historical is good too.

I don't think you can go wrong with the early Laurens books. I love them all.

Re: What BOOK are you reading now?

I just found a book one day in the book store by Cecelia Ahern called If you could see me now and it was so good. After that I bought PS I love You ( which the movie is coming out in Dec) and I just got done with Love, Rosie. I am in college and since I have started reading her books all I want to do is find more books like hers. My friends said they are starting to miss me because all I do is read now.

I love that feeling, the feeling of getting lost in reading. Do you think you'll see the PS I Love You movie?

I am reading Blood Brothers by Nora Roberts. I am not very far, but being a huge fan of NR, I have read everything she has written. I will cruise through it this weekend, for sure.

After a few week of craving historical romance, I'm back to a paranormal

The Scent of Shadows- the first Zodiac book by Vicki Petterson. I am not sure if it is even romance, but was noted on the Barnes and Noble order site as something I would like based on the other books I ordered (usually paranormal romance since they are the ones I often can't find in my library).

I am not far enough into it yet to say how I feel about it yet- but it does catch your interest from the first page.

[ Edited ]
I am reading Dockside by Susan Wiggs. It is the third book in her Lakeshore Chronicles series. I loved the first two! Anyone else read any of her books??? Table for Five was absolutely fantastic!!
