Re: Elliott Redeemed (5:45pm August 31, 2017):

I loved the Black Falcon series by Michelle A. Valentine.

Re: Wrong Side of the Paw (5:37pm August 31, 2017):

An unsecured television that came crashing down into the street right in
front of my car!

Re: Muffin to Fear (5:36pm August 31, 2017):

Orange cranberry, please!

Re: 50 Ways to Ruin a Rake (8:47am May 6, 2015):

Happy Birthday! :) What a great birthday gift- the release of a new
book.
Your book sounds quite funny- I love a witty heroine and lots of
snappy dialogue.
Cinco de Mayo is also my wedding anniversary. (27 years!) My hubby &
I laugh and say that there's always a party going on somewhere on our
anniversary.

Re: Play Me Wild (1:22am November 27, 2014):

Right now I am reading It's In His Kiss by Jill Shalvis. I'm listening to
Seventh Grave and No Body by Darynda Jones. I always have two or three
books going. :) I guess that's why I hardly ever watch TV.

Re: Hard to Come By (8:51pm November 26, 2014):

I've never read a romance novel where the hero was an amputee before.
I've really liked the Hard Ink series so far, and Marz's character in particular
adds an extra something, so I'm really looking forward to reading his story.

Re: Muffin But Murder (10:05pm July 1, 2014):

I love humor in a cozy. I also like romance triangles in them too. What I
don't really like is when they make the police into such bumbling idiots that
a complete novice investigator figures out the crime completely on her own
whole they're "stumped", and I hate it when authors turn a cozy into an
episode of Scooby-Doo.

Re: Full Exposure (9:59pm July 1, 2014):

Not sure I have a favorite- I just get really wrapped up into whichever
characters I'm currently reading about. (If I don't, then I close the book!) I
love this storyline. I'm looking forward to reading your book!

Re: Risky Game (2:40pm May 13, 2014):

I recently read Melting the Ice by Jaci Burton, which I really enjoyed. I like
that her stories are all about characters that are family and friends, and it
really does feel as though you are visiting with old friends when you read
them.
I can't wait to read Brody's story.

Re: Wild Ways (8:13am May 13, 2014):

When I think of a biker bad boy, I think of them in my mind just like they're
pictured on these book covers. That is definitely sexy, so yes, I like reading these
stories. Not so sure if I'd enjoy the real-life version of a biker bad boy though,
unless he was fond of personal grooming and was minus the paunch and the ZZ-
Top style beard. Sometimes it's better to stick with the fantasy...

Re: Playing It Close (4:54pm April 9, 2014):

I kind of think of a rugby player as being like a hockey player, but without
the ice and skates. I imagine that they'd have to be a pretty tough sort to
play that sport.
I like that this book is about something besides the usual football or
baseball hero. I'm intrigued.

Re: Turned (12:38pm March 20, 2014):

I've been waiting for this one to come out! I saw a blurb about it a while back on
a blog. Looks like a great new series!

Re: Her Summer with the Marine (10:37am March 18, 2014):

I like books that are part of a series. It makes you feel like you can revisit a favorite town or some old friends. I look forward to reading this one. Friends to lovers is a favorite trope of mine.

Re: The Cowboy's Mail Order Bride (5:06pm February 20, 2014):

Carolyn- your story sounds a lot like my parents' story, except that it was
my dad who saw my mom's picture and started writing to her! She received
a letter that started out with 'You don't know me, but...' Funny thing is, they
got to know each other really well through letters, which never would have
happened if they'd met in person because my father was a quiet, shy sort
of man. It's too bad that actual physical letter writing is becoming a lost art.
I'm looking forward to reading your newest book- your stories always put a
smile on my face.

Re: Once In A Lifetime (12:08pm February 19, 2014):

Not so much romantic as it is deep. I love it when an author actually gives
me characters that aren't shallow. Romances are so much better when we
get to see inside our hero and heroine. I can't wait to read this one!

Re: How To Handle A Highlander (2:52pm November 9, 2013):

I'm curious... Do you wear your historical garments solely for book shows
and signings, or do you also wear them as an every day thing around the
house?
I've enjoyed your previous books, so I look forward to reading this one!

Re: A Midsummer Bride (1:50pm November 1, 2013):

I love a heroine with a witty sense of humor. A bit of snark definitely livens up a
plot and makes it fun to read.

Re: Born Wild (1:48pm November 1, 2013):

Sounds like another great book! I can't wait to read it.

Re: Snowbound With The Soldier (9:27am October 11, 2013):

I just love it when my teenage daughter periodically surprises me by
making us dinner. It's really nice to be the one to get treated to a night off
once in a while!

Re: My Lady Quicksilver (9:07am October 5, 2013):

I've been on the receiving end of lies many times. I find that if you always
tell the truth, then you never have to try to remember what you've said. I
also try never to say anything about someone that I wouldn'tsaydirectly to
their face.

Re: Long Shot (1:56pm October 2, 2013):

This book really grabbed my interest! I've got it on my TBR list.

Re: Dirty Trick (10:38am September 26, 2013):

I absolutely love a homemade pumpkin pie with lots of whipped cream. Living in
a tropical climate, I really miss the change of the seasons and the fall leaves, as
our seasons are basically rain, hot, and less hot.
I think this book sounds like a fun read!

Re: Surrender To Sultry (12:34pm August 22, 2013):

The excerpt sounds great- I can't wait to read the book!

Re: Wicked Beat (12:32pm August 22, 2013):

I have to have people around me with a good sense of humor. Otherwise
we'd drive each other crazy, since I love to joke around too.

Re: Cowboy Seeks Bride (12:27pm August 22, 2013):

Aww... I loved this series! I will be sad to read the last one. They're like
potato chips for me- a guilty pleasure and you can't stop at just one!

Re: One Night (7:33pm June 23, 2013):

I asked a guy I liked to a sorority dance with me, and we're still married 25
years later!

Re: Sweet Revenge (4:23pm June 3, 2013):

This sounds tasty! :)
I like my heros rough around the edges. Those pasty viscounts and genteel
aristocrats don't really do it for me. Give me a bad boy any day.

Re: The Summer I Became A Nerd (3:24pm May 24, 2013):

Books, Star Wars, and 80's music.
Guess I've pretty much dated myself... LOL!

Re: Seducing Charlotte (8:26pm May 18, 2013):

It doesn't bother me, as long as it fits in with the rest of the story. There's
nothing wrong with grabbing your reader's attention! Certainly anyone
reading a romance novel should be expecting this at some point. I'd rather
that than wait until 3/4 of the way through the book before anything
remotely spicy happens.
Congratulations on your new book!

Re: The Last Telegram (1:42pm April 25, 2013):

I've been reading several of the historical fiction books out lately about WWII.
Interestingly enough, they've also sparked a real interest from my teenager, who
has been asking me to read the books too. I'm surprised, but glad, because so
many of today's kids are so far removed from even recent world events that it's
refreshing to see one that cares enough not to forget. We'd love to read this one!

Re: The Summer He Came Home (5:37pm April 18, 2013):

Your book looks great- I can't wait to read it. One of my favorite storylines!
All this talk of Jon Bon Jovi. :) He still looks great. I just saw him again in
concert last month. The last time I saw him was in 1987. His hair is shorter,
he's got lines by his eyes, doesn't dance as much (he needs his Advil
now... Lol!) but he's still got it!

Re: Lush (7:27am April 3, 2013):

I hadn't heard of this series yet, but it sure sounds good! I'll definitely be
looking into it. Thanks for the chance to win.

Re: Nickeled-And-Dimed To Death (3:16pm March 23, 2013):

I loved Little Shop of Homicide! I was so delighted to finally find a cozy
mystery heroine who wasn't "too stupid to live", and had more than her
share of spunk. I also liked the fact that the author didn't shy away from
including an actual potential love interest, and that the heroine had some
actual emotions. It was a delight to read! I can't wait to read the second.
And yes, I do hate to wait a whole year if the story is good enough! It's why
I like when trilogies are released about three months apart. Less waiting.

Re: Buried In A Bog (11:33pm March 17, 2013):

I've never been to Ireland, but I definitely want to go there someday. The
pictures look so beautiful and green. The new book sounds great!

Re: The Geek Girl And The Scandous Earl (4:53pm March 15, 2013):

I read a blurb about this book on another blog, and it really caught my eye!
I've added it to my TBR list. It looks really cute.

Re: Secret Santa Baby (10:49am December 27, 2012):

Sounds interesting! Happy New Year. :)

Re: Double Time (2:47pm November 30, 2012):

I definitely love metal! I love most of the bands that you post weekly on your
blog, Olivia, and I even found my daughter's new favorite band on there too- Rev
Theory! Thanks for the great music, and for keeping us entertained with your
newest books.

Re: Untamed (12:26pm November 23, 2012):

I agree with you completely. I never venture out to do any shopping on
"Black Friday". Even just hearing those words makes me cringe. I do
almost all of my holiday shopping online, because I hate the crowds and
the whole crush of materialism that is prevalent at this time of the year. It
sucks the holiday spirit right out of me too. I love giving gifts, but I have just
never understood the whole need to accumulate "stuff" to the point of
putting yourself into loads of debt. We spend one day being "thankful" for
what we "have", and then the very next day, people are out trying to
accumulate the loads of stuff we don't. I just shake my head at the midnight
sales, the lines outside of stores in the pre-dawn hours, and the overloaded
carts.
We don't really have a "tradition" for the day after Thanksgiving, other than
to just relax and enjoy a quiet day at home. Lately my daughter is into
trying all different types of cookie recipes, so we may do that.
Your book looks great! Enjoy your holidays. :)

Re: Iced Chiffon (3:24pm October 28, 2012):

I like cozies a lot. I'm not a big fan of a gory thriller, but I like trying to figure
out "who done it". I also really like cozies with just a hint of a love interest. I
just finished reading Pies and Prejudice. That was really cute.

Re: Rev It Up (12:42pm October 19, 2012):

Well, pretty much by the cover, I know what genre I'm getting into already. I
do like it when an author stretches a genre, and gives us something outside of
the formulaic box approach that so many of the "big name" authors have
begun to use without fail. I have actually taken many of my "auto-buy"
authors off of my auto-buy list and refuse to read their work anymore, simply
because I just feel like I'm getting the same book over and over. All they seem
to do is change the character's names and the location. If I start flipping to
the back after the third chapter, it's not a good sign. That is very frustrating,
and it's the reason that I have to switch genres so often when I read.
I don't like it when an author tries to get too ambitious though. I've read a few
books where it was like the author simply couldn't decide which genre he/she
liked, so the book ended up becoming too confusing to follow.
I am very anxiously awaiting the arrival of the first book in your series, Julie.
I've heard good things about it, and I can't wait to read it for myself!
Best of luck to you.

Re: Sultry With A Twist (12:28pm October 19, 2012):

Wow. Just wow. I guess some people get the feeling that they "know" you
when they actually don't by reading your books and interviews. Some things
are just way too personal to ask about though! I don't think I'd even ask a
close friend about some of that stuff!
I've met a few rock stars that have laughed about stuff like that too. They get
that a LOT, because when people identify with their music, and see their
interviews and concerts, they begin to feel like they "know" them. It can
certainly make for some very awkward moments!
That said, I think your new book series looks really good, Macy! Good luck
with your writing, and always know where the door is in case you have to
make a run for it! :) (Tee-hee!) Best wishes.

Re: The Shadowy Horses (7:34am October 12, 2012):

I think that if it's done well, using a dialect can really enhance the story
and transport you to the time period represented. Sometimes it takes me
a chapter or two to get used to it, but then the pages just start flying by,
and I forget I'm even reading it until someone around me asks me a
question. I think Carol K. Carr does this well, with her India Black
mysteries, and so does Deanna Raybourne, with her Julia Grey mysteries.
I also liked the dialect used in The Help. If the author stays in character,
then it works. I prefer that to having just a couple of foreign words or
exclamations tossed in gratuitously, which I find fake and annoying, like
when a news reporter suddenly becomes Spanish for two words.
I've never read The Shadowy Horses, but it looks very good. Thanks for
the chance to win it. :)

Re: In The Barrister's Bed (3:14pm October 10, 2012):

Didn't a lot of boys want to be lawyers growing up? A lot of them said, "A doctor
or lawyer" when asked what they wanted to go to school for.

Re: Run The Risk (3:12pm October 10, 2012):

Ooh- I never would have thought of Rhett Butler, but he is definitely the original
rake! I'm looking forward to reading this new book!

Re: Dark Light Of Day (10:21am October 4, 2012):

Ooh- I love the character of Charley Davidson too! Darynda Jones us one
of my all time favorite authors! Her books never fail to make me laugh,
and then keep me on the edge of my seat. Besides being the Grim
Reaper, Charley has a bunch of as of yet unrevealed powers. You just
never know what she's going to do next.
This new book sounds great. I think I would use those powers if I had
them, just maybe find a way to make the best of them.
Thanks for the chance to win.

Re: Boyfriend From Hell (7:38am September 25, 2012):

Ha- I like the title! I've had a few of those...
Ideas are all around us, but it takes talent to turn those ideas into a
workable story. Thanks to all the novelists who do that so well.

Re: A Home For Nobody's Princess (7:34am September 25, 2012):

I'm still looking for it... I haven't truly found the place yet that feels like
"home". Thanks for the giveaway.

Re: Where There's A Will (7:32am September 21, 2012):

*raises hand*
I read romance novels too! :) They've always been my favorite genre. It's
nice to have a hot hero to read about and a happy ending that's
guaranteed.
Your book sounds great, Karen! Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

Re: Chasing a Dream (12:57pm September 12, 2012):

I'd love a chance to win- I'm not sure any of my stories are interesting enough to
post, but I've enjoyed a few that did.

Re: One Wrong Move (12:55pm September 12, 2012):

Sounds like an interesting book! ;) Thanks for the chance to win.

Re: In Rides Trouble (5:45pm September 7, 2012):

Oooh! I love a good "bad boy" on a motorcycle. Looks like a great book-
thanks for the chance to win!

Re: Blame It On Texas (11:17pm August 26, 2012):

Thanks for your stories. They made me smile. Good luck with your books-
they look great.

Re: Bruja Brouhaha (6:20pm August 24, 2012):

Sounds like an interesting series! Would love to try it.

Re: Primal Possession (8:38pm August 16, 2012):

I like a strong willed heroine that has a quick wit. Thanks for the giveaway!

Re: Primal Possession (12:40pm August 15, 2012):

I like a strong willed heroine with a quick wit. I really dislike whiny
heroines.
Thanks for the giveaway- I liked Alpha Instinct and I'm looking forward to
reading Liam and December's story.

Re: Hell On Wheels (8:04pm August 10, 2012):

Looks like a great book! And you gotta love that cover...

Re: The Last Victim (2:56pm August 5, 2012):

I can't wait to read your newest novel! Thanks for all you do to come up
with great books for you readers.

Re: Can't Hurry Love (3:37pm August 2, 2012):

Hugh Jackman is one guy that just gets even yummier as he ages. (Could
be all that body-building he does now for his Wolverine role, but still!)
Thanks for the chance to win- the book looks great!

Re: I Own The Dawn (3:32pm August 2, 2012):

I love to read about the moment when the hero first admits to himself that
he loves the heroine.
This book looks really good! Thanks for the chance to win a copy.

Re: Luscious (2:08pm July 19, 2012):

One of my favorite parts of a romance story is the attraction and romantic
tension between the characters, especially in a new or developing
relationship. It's the best part about romance for me.

Re: Four Sisters, All Queens (4:33pm July 14, 2012):

History is most fun to read about when told in story form like this. It seems like a
really interesting book! Thanks for the chance to win.

Re: Lady Amelia's Mess And A Half (9:47am June 29, 2012):

Rhett and Scarlet from Gone With the Wind are some of my all time
favorites!
This book sounds really interesting. Thanks for the opportunity to win a
copy.

Re: Wicked Nights (9:42am June 29, 2012):

I can't wait to read Wicked Nights! I love all your books, Gena. I'm excited
to see what your newest series will bring us.
Hmm... A hero character that grabbed my attention right away and held
it... I'd have to say Reyes from Darynda Jones's Charley Davidson series.
He is quite an intriguing and sexy bad boy.

Re: Sins Of The Angels (10:38am June 25, 2012):

Fun list. :) Yeah... I know a few people I could definitely write into a
story... >;)
Thanks for the contest!

Re: Cursed (10:19am June 14, 2012):

I can't wait to try out this series- it sounds fantastic. Watch out, Harry
Dresden, it looks like you've got some competition...
Thanks for the chance to win! :)

Re: Chosen Ones (9:37am June 8, 2012):

I'm kind of picky about the dystopian novels I choose to read, but I saw a
blog post about yours quite a while ago and added it to my TBR list right
away. It sounds really good!
Thanks for the chance to win a copy, and good luck with your book
release!

Re: Chase Me (9:54am June 7, 2012):

Right now I'm reading The Rift Walker and I'm really enjoying the unusual
romantic lead of Prince Gareth (Greyfriar).
Thanks for the chance to win!

Re: Untouched (7:43pm April 20, 2012):

2, 6, and 10 for me.
Thanks for the giveaway.

Re: Assassins In Love (11:56pm March 22, 2012):

I think those sound like fun places to read about. I could see a romance
set there! I used to love watching Stargate, and there were both romance
and action on that show. Why not in a romance novel? Sounds fun- can't
wait to read it!

Re: Sticks and Stones (8:05am March 21, 2012):

I would definitely want to write a book with my daughter. We've already
discussed doing so, but right now her school workload is too heavy for us
to devote enough time into it. We like similar books and have the same
quirky sense of humor. We'd make a good team, because I can bring the
depth and maturity, while she brings in the freshness and modern voice.
It's good to have ideas coming from someone not already too jaded about
life.
I was surprised when I first found out that Liar, Liar was actually written by
three sisters. Kudos to all of you! That book was absolutely wonderful- I
loved it! I laughed my way through it and loved the colorful characters! I
can't wait to read Sticks and Stones.

Re: A Sliver Of Shadow (12:36pm February 29, 2012):

I don't buy into the whole love at first sight thing. Attraction, yes. Love is
something that comes about when you really know and understand another
person. It's a spiritual connection.

Re: King of Darkness (2:14pm February 22, 2012):

I've got to have my morning coffee! The day just doesn't start off as well without
it.
Your book looks interesting, Elisabeth!

Re: A Fitting End (3:03pm February 10, 2012):

I'd write a cozy mystery series more suitable for YA readers. Maybe
something involving a high school. There are mysteries for kids, and cozies
for adults, but almost everything in the YA genre is either vampires
(paranormal) or contemporary romance. I think Nancy Drew was the last
mystery series I can remember for teens that stands out in my mind, and even
those are a bit young for older teens.

Re: The Lord Of Illusion (1:23pm February 3, 2012):

I think the ability to fly would be awesome- although, the ability to use glamour
or become invisible would be pretty incredible too. Your book sounds really
good, Kathryne!

Re: Alpha Instinct (8:00am February 2, 2012):

I enjoy a good paranormal story because it is a great way to immerse
yourself in a complete fantasy world, away from the everyday humdrum
and life's difficulties. I like how most paranormals also combine romance
and mystery along with the fantasy aspects, making them interesting to
read. I also like how the heroes are typically alpha males, and most
female characters are tough and so unlike some of the "simpering
weaklings" you occasionally find in other types of romances. The best
books for me combine both UF and paranormal, with a bit of romance.
This new series sounds very interesting- thanks for the chance to win!

Re: One Book In The Grave (9:40am February 1, 2012):

I visit different author's websites all the time. I like receiving their newsletters
and blogs too. I visit them for varying reasons. Sometimes it's to check the
order of books in a series, or to see what new books they have coming up
(and find out what their ISBN numbers will be!) I like to read the information
authors post about their family lives, and about how they came up with their
characters, etc.
I also like entering contests on author websites and blogs. I have won books
from them before, and I always get happy when I get a "You're the winner" e-
mail! I always read the books I receive, and then I pass them along to
someone else who can read and enjoy them as well. I also always try to post
a review of the book on the paperback website I belong to for other readers.
Thanks for the giveaway Kate! :)

Re: Chosen By Sin (1:43pm January 31, 2012):

I love reading romantic suspense books. They're the best of both worlds. You get
a mystery and some romance. Never a dull moment! :)

Re: Sex, Lies and Surveillance (7:49am January 19, 2012):

Wow, Stephanie- this book sounds so fun! I'm adding it to my TBR list
right now. It seems to have all the elements of a great read. :)
My favorite spy character... Hmm. Well, someone's already mentioned
Maxwell Smart. I just love the movie Get Smart with Steve Carell and
Anne Hathaway. He is completely hysterical, yet he is also a good spy
and I love the romance that happens too. Can't judge a book by it's cover!
I guess he'd be my favorite.
Good luck with your new book, and thanks for the chance to win!

Re: Scrumptious (6:56pm January 16, 2012):

Still finding my way a little at a time. :) Your book looks great!

Re: Sins Of The Highlander (7:53am January 12, 2012):

I love this type of hero- strong, brawny, sarcastic and brash, but with a
vulnerable, slightly self-depreciating side and a sense of humor. A nice
combination. I liked the excerpt, and will definitely be looking into this
book! Thanks for the contest and the chance to win it.

Re: Bride By Mistake (7:43am January 12, 2012):

Anne- thanks for the excerpt! This book looks great. It's going right onto
my TBR list! I love MoC stories. Watching the characters grow from
indifference or dislike to falling in love is always fun, especially if the
tension is there between the characters. They're best when there's a
strong, opinionated heroine. Some of the greatest snarky dialogue comes
from stories like these!

Re: Sweet Reward (10:55am January 2, 2012):

I like tortured characters, as long as they're not whiny about it. Sometimes an author can begin to get a bit repetitive with it, which causes the character to become irritating.
I'm always looking for a new-to-me author, so thanks for the chance to win! :)

Re: Shield of Fire (11:14am December 9, 2011):

Teen boys like electronics! iPods, and definitely new earbuds! They're always
breaking them. Most of them are gamers as well, so any type of electronic
game or related items will usually work. You'd probably do well with some
kind of male body spray too, as they're always drowning themselves in that. ;)
Things like biking gloves for bicycle tricks, or cool baseball hats are good
gifts for this age too.

Re: Wild Thing (9:19am December 5, 2011):

I do think that certain personality types can attract if they're opposites, such as
an outgoing person and a shy person. Usually, these people will have several
things in common as well, though, underneath the surface, which furthers the
initial attraction. Often we admire things in others that we would like to see in
ourselves, which in my opinion is partly why opposites attract.

Re: Hunter Of Shadows (1:12pm December 2, 2011):

This sounds really good! I've got your others, so I'm looking forward to reading
this!

Re: Tall, Dark And Cowboy (1:06pm November 7, 2011):

I'm not sure where I'd go if I had to start all over. I suppose it would depend
upon the resources I had available to me at the time. All I know is that I would
find a way to make it work.
This book sounds like a great read!

Re: Liver Let Die (5:43pm November 5, 2011):

A name does tend to give me a picture in my head of what that person
may be like, but it's not their only defining factor. It's only a way to get
their attention.
Clever title on the new book! :)

Re: The Virtuoso (11:15am November 2, 2011):

I've got the first two books, and can't wait to read this one! :) Congratulations
on your continued writing success!

Re: Embrace The Highland Warrior (11:00pm November 1, 2011):

I'm a light sleeper, so if something makes noise at night, it wakes me up. I
usually can't get back to sleep until I figure out what it is. The book looks
great- thanks for the giveaway!

Re: Enchanted Destiny (12:26pm October 31, 2011):

Interesting story line idea- thanks for the chance to enter to win a copy!

Re: His Last Duchess (12:42pm October 27, 2011):

I've read a bit about your book on another blog, and it looks great! Thanks for
sharing your photo. I imagine that writing would get pretty solitary sometimes.
Thank you for the chance to win a copy of your book.

Re: Haunting Embrace (7:47am October 22, 2011):

Tumbling through time would be difficult in either direction, either forwards
or backwards. So much changes- technology and culture, clothing,
hairstyles, even language. It would definitely be fascinating to do though!
I love an emotionally torn hero- it adds so much more depth to a story,
especially if he's a bad boy with a good heart. Thanks for the chance to
win! :)

Re: Utterly Charming (8:54am October 19, 2011):

I think this story sounds like a great new twist on the fairy tale theme. My
favorite fairy tale is still the old stand-by, "rags to riches" story of Cinderella. I'm
not really checking out any of the new tv shows- I don't watch very much tv
anymore.

Re: Against The Storm (10:11am October 17, 2011):

I am always amazed when I read the stories about how some of my favorite
authors had such a hard time getting their books published. I often wonder
about how much talent never even gets a chance. I'm glad you were persistent,
Kat. Congratulations on your latest release.

Re: Chosen By Fate (5:47pm October 9, 2011):

I actually enjoy a book much more when there are elements from a few
different genres in them. Books without at least a touch of romance tend
to seem too flat to me. Congratulations on the release of your new book,
Virna!

Re: The Norse King's Daughter (10:42am September 30, 2011):

When I'm in a reading slump, I tend to ask other readers on my favorite used paperback website (paperbackswap.com) what good books they've read lately. I also play in a lot of used book swap exchange games on that site which help me to discover new authors.
Sandra- I love that you admit to finding new-to-you authors by recycling a used book- I do the same! I love to see another person get enjoyment from a book that I liked too. (Of course, many authors become auto-buys for me this way too!)
Sometimes I'll try an altogether new-to-me genre. One I've recently really gotten into lately is Urban Fiction (UF). I've really enjoyed Grave Witch by Kalayna Price, and First Grave on the Right by Darynda Jones.
Your newest book looks quite interesting, Sandra- I'll have to check it out!

Re: Lady Of The English (2:11pm September 2, 2011):

Looks like a great read!

Re: A Gentleman Never Tells (9:35am July 25, 2011):

This book looks like a great read- thanks for the chance to win! :)

Re: Heart of the Highland Wolf (10:05am June 8, 2011):

Sexy, muscled men with swords? And werewolves? Sounds like a great story to me!

Re: Tangled Threads (6:25am April 18, 2011):

I never really watch t.v. anymore... I'd rather read!
Congratulations on the new books, Jennifer! My daughter and I both love
the Elemental Assassin series, and can't wait to try out your YA series!

Re: The Shadow Guard (12:28pm April 5, 2011):

I'd love to meet the character Carlo, an Italian duke from an oldie but a goodie, Love Play.
