The other day I ran to the UBS/Indie bookseller and picked up part of my current book order...
- Private Demon -- Lynn Viehl
- Wedding Survivor -- Julia London
- It Happened One Autumn -- Lisa Kleypas
- Through a Crimson Veil -- Patti O'Shea
I also picked up the new RT, the link is in the sidebar--I'm being lazy today.
I've already finished It Happened One Autumn. I don't really know what I expected, but for some reason it hasn't lived up to expectations. Marcus has been a secondary character in a couple of books and I wanted his book to be spectacular. Don't get me wrong it's a good book, Lillian, the heroine, at time is incredibly headstrong, which is fine, at least she doesn't fall into the TSTL category.
This is the 2nd in the Wallflower series. The first was Secrets of a Summer Night. Which was good also, but at the end I was left really looking forward to this one, thinking this one would be even better. And, now at the end of this one I'm left looking foward to the next which I think will be better than the first 2. Of course, I've read the sneak preview and the hero of the next book was the semi-villain of this one. I love ex-villain hero's, like to see how an author redeems them.
The owner of the bookstore gave me an ARC of The Midnight Work by Kassandra Sims. It's a vampire book and she's not into them, so she was very nice and gave it to me. I'm not real sure about it, but I'll give it a try. Besides vampires the back blurb comments on zombies, sleazy French alchemists, fairies and "Fairy Land". All of which sounds cleverly funny, but what I'm really looking for nail biting terror from vampire stories. And, I'm so not into fairies and Fairy Land. Oh well.
Have a good one, and happy reading.
