Before I list the books I've ordered for September I'm directing all NR readers to the review of Morrigan's Cross over on Dear Author. Jane hits the mark and saves me from having to write a review. Good book--read it.
So, I finally got around to ordering September books...
- The Book of True Desires by Betina Krahn, 1. I've always been a faithful Krahn reader, going back to her fabulous Caught in the Act. 2. I met her at a book signing and she was very gracious and incredibly nice. 3. The book is set in 1899 Florida and Mexico.
- His Mistress By Morning by Elizabeth Boyle--I liked the synposis in RT.
- A Reason To Live by Maureen McKade--Post-Civil War South and West, now in the past I might have passed on this book, because it's not a favorite time period, but Wendy loved it, so it's worth trying.
- To Rescue a Rogue by Jo Beverley--come on it's Jo Beverley of course it's worth reading.
- What a Gentleman Wants by Caroline Linden--loved her first book What a Woman Needs so this was a must read.
- The Panther & The Pyramid by Bonnie Vanak--I'm not really sure why I ordered this one, I only liked one of the first 3 in this series, but what the heck...
- ***The Slightest Provocation*** by Pam Rosenthal--1. I like Pam Rosenthal's writing voice. 2. The heroine "lives a bohemian life with poets and reformers" nice change for a Regency period book.
- The Gladiator's Honor by Michelle Styles--set in 65 BC Rome.
- Everything's Coming Up Rosie by Kasey Michaels, I'm more hit than miss with Ms. Michaels and this one sounds great.
- Dreaming of You by Francis Ray, this sounds so great and I'm heading to the UBS to try and find the books from this series already out.
- You Had Me at Goodbye by Jane Blackwood, the RT reviewers comment..."In this wonderful romance, which has delightfully likable characters, the secondary romance is as enjoyable to watch as the major one..." was enough to hook me, wonderful, delightfully and enjoyable sounds good to me.
- True Blood byPatricia Waddell, an interesting sounding futuristic.
- Lover Awakened by JR Ward--heck, why isn't this one at the top of the list? The list is in the same order as the RT Reviews. Can't wait for this book!!
- Slave to Sensation by Nalini Singh--buzz, buzz, buzz, this is going to be a good one!!
The books I considered but passed on...
- Simply Love by Mary Balogh, I'll borrow this one from the library and buy it when it goes mm.
- To Wicked to Wed by Cheryl Holt, I always love her story ideas, but am consistantly disappointed with the actual books.
- Only a Duke Will Due by Sabrina Jeffries, I'm whispering this considering the converstions going on about buying new...I'm getting this one at the UBS.
- The Southern Devil by Diane Whiteside, I'm very picky when it comes to Post-Civil War books, have huge issues about slavery, Confederate heros etc. besides Wendy gave it a C.
Hopefully it's a nice mix of books. I'm picking up the last of my August books from the bookstore today. I'll post that list later.
Have a great day and happy reading.
***Yikes I just saw the review for The Slightest Provocation over on AAR and it's down right ugly, maybe I'll pass on this one, save the $14.00, hopefully the order hasn't been placed yet. Maybe I'll try it used instead.***
