5 Books

It's been awhile since I've done a Meme, (ever notice how those things seem to run in cycles?) so I thought I'd share The Last 5 Books I Read:
  1. Untouched -- the latest lush and sensual Regency Noir from my Bandit buddy Anna Campbell
  2. Does She Dare -- a sassy sexy romp by my Bandit buddy Tawny Weber (do I sense a trend here?)
  3. Silent in the Grave -- an atmospheric Victorian murder mystery crammed with luscious detail by Deanna Raybourn (a debut author).
  4. The Serpent Prince -- the third in a trilogy of loosely related romances set in Georgian England by my 06 Packer Pal Elizabeth Hoyt. This heroine and I almost share the same moniker!
  5. Frommer's Guide to Western Europe -- Okay, so I only read the parts about London and Paris... er, um actually the DH RIPPED those parts out and packed them in his carry-on bag. I did mention that we travel light, didn't I?
Geez, that's an awful lot of historical romance for someone who writes contemporary! And next on my reading list is yet another historical: Bandita buddy Christie Kelley's Every Night I'm Yours which hit bookstores TODAY!

Long live historicals! Actually there's an awful lot of fabulous historicals out at the moment - I've heard wonderful things about the Spymaster's Lady by Joanna Bourne too. Thanks for the mention of the green monster, AC!!! Mwah!

MWAH! Right back atcha, Foanna! I'm always happy to pimp... er um, promote a fellow Bandita's book. Especially when it is as TERRIFIC as your Green Monster! Untouched had me sobbing near the end... not my usual demeanor on a cruise!

Funny thing about historicals, I read ONLY that sub-genre for a long time. But somewhere along the line, I picked up contemporaries and when I sat down the seriously pursue publication, a contemporary romantic suspense is what flowed from my fingertips. Okay, not exactly flowed. Artistic license, ya know!

Can't wait for your new release, Tempt the Devil!
