I love reading cozy mysteries, especially if ghosts are involved!
Re: Must Love Dukes (5:39pm February 28, 2014):
I've done - totally blanked on a person's name before even though I know them

Sounds great! So he's a dragon among men? Sign me up!

I really enjoy Regency and historical books because it gives me the opportunity
to escape my normal boring life.
Re: It Takes Two To Tangle (10:33pm September 12, 2013):
I love your books! My family has a Molly every other generation, even though
that girl is really named Mary. It's an Irish thing like Jack is a nickname for John.
Re: The Highlander's Desire (9:34pm August 30, 2013):
Little Mermaid for me!
Re: Baden-Powell's Beads: London (9:23pm July 30, 2013):

Re: X Marks The Scot (6:38pm February 22, 2013):
I love hot Scots. Thanks for the look into your book.
Re: Checkmate, My Lord (6:37pm February 22, 2013):
I think about several of Kieran Kramer's Impossible Bachelors.
Re: The Mistress Memoirs (10:20pm February 20, 2013):
Sounds wonderful! And what a beautiful cover! You really lucked out - I've seen a few lately that are not flattering at all.
Re: Murder Hooks a Mermaid (3:09pm February 18, 2013):
I love cozy mysteries! your books sounds really great. Thanks for the post!

Loved the list. Thank you so much for enlightening me!
Re: Ashes Of Twilight (8:44pm November 17, 2012):
I'm learning to really appreciate Steam Punk. I'd love to read your book. Congrats on its release!
Re: The Warrior (11:06pm November 1, 2012):
I agree with the first post - love Gerard Butler. Also adore Hugh Jackman!

I love ghost stories!
Re: Wild Texas Rose (9:14pm August 6, 2012):
Hi Jodi! I bought my first book of yours about 10 years ago. Been hooked ever since!
Re: The Secret Mistress (9:16pm July 31, 2012):
Hi Mary! I'm a huge beta fan. Who wants to leader of the pack. I'll take the 2nd in command any day!
Re: Four Sisters, All Queens (5:14pm July 14, 2012):
I love large families, as I have 4 sisters myself. This story sounds perfect for me. I love historical romance!
Re: Jesse (9:21pm July 13, 2012):
Hi C.H.! I am so glad that westerns are making, or have made a come back!
Re: One Breath Away (6:06pm July 10, 2012):
I really enjoy mystery too, especially if there is a little romance thrown in there too.
Re: Lady Amelia's Mess And A Half (8:05pm June 28, 2012):
I bought this book because the cover was just so gorgeous. It's on top of my TBR pile!
Re: Starlight (10:29pm June 25, 2012):
Hi Carry! I LOVE you books. I've seen with you since your very first historical. I love historical romance!
Re: Undead And Unstable (11:46pm June 15, 2012):
Hi MJ! Us readers are awesome. I'm a little of everything you described. I buy, I listen from the library and I really idolize the awesome writers like you!!!
Re: Her Highness, The Traitor (11:38pm June 1, 2012):
I love books like this one that mix a little history with myth and fiction. Can't wait to read it.
Re: Seeker Of Shadows (8:55pm May 30, 2012):
Sounds interesting. I tend to like historicals mixed with mystery.
Re: Demon's Bride (9:34pm May 2, 2012):
I like heroes too, especially those that have suffered before.
Re: Homefront Hero (10:48pm April 25, 2012):
I enjoy Beta males as heroes. They tend to be the strong silent type. :)
Re: Somebody To Love (7:51pm April 24, 2012):
Hi Kristen. You're a new author to me, but I seem to see your name everywhere! I think that's a good thing!!
Re: Trouble Me (8:17pm April 9, 2012):
Sounds like a good read. I'm not a huge Contemporary fan, but this reminds me of one of Linda Howard stories, and she's my favorite author!
Re: One Hot Cowboy Wedding (9:40pm April 8, 2012):
Sounds like fun, sign me up!
Re: Vigilare (10:12am April 7, 2012):
I don't see what Katniss and your lead have in common.
Re: Lessons After Dark (9:26pm April 6, 2012):
The idea of the X-Men - more particularly those with special gifts - has always been an interest of mine. Maybe it has to do with my Irish heritage, where we've always believed in the supernatural.
Re: True Highland Spirit (5:30pm March 30, 2012):
I love stories with strong women. Add in the Highlands and I'm so there! Can't wait to read this.
Re: A Light On The Veranda (5:29pm March 30, 2012):
I love ghost stories. Hopefully this is one!
Re: The Chase (9:17pm March 28, 2012):
I enjoy reading FBI stories.
Re: Vicki's Key (9:16pm March 28, 2012):
I just love listening to Liam Neeson. That rich deep voice and Irish brogue is so sexy!
Re: Believe It or Not (8:14am March 23, 2012):
I really enjoy reading humorous books. There is too much angst in real life, so I don't enjoy reading about it.
Re: The Needle In The Blood (10:25pm March 16, 2012):
I love tapestries. I have a wall sized one hanging in my bedroom. It has a garden and water fall.
Re: A Seal In Wolf's Clothing (10:01pm March 16, 2012):
Congrats on making the USA Today bestseller's list!!!
Re: Hellsbane (6:44am March 15, 2012):
Sounds like a fun read. I like music in the background.
Re: Clobbered By Camembert (10:25am February 25, 2012):
I don't cook much, but find reading books that mix mystery with humor are fun.
Re: The Rogue Pirate's Bride (10:56pm February 24, 2012):
I have two of your books and I've love to win this one. Keep 'em coming!
Re: The Risque Target (11:39pm February 23, 2012):
Sounds like a good read. You are new to me, so I'd love to read one of your books.
Re: King of Darkness (10:47pm February 22, 2012):
No coffee for me. I love tea and one Pepsi One daily.
Re: The Legacy Of Eden (11:05pm February 20, 2012):
Definitely. My grandmother took a "vacation" one week and never left her bedroom but to get food and go to the bathroom. She visited many countries while reading her books.
Re: The Last Beginning (2:08pm February 19, 2012):
I'm rendered speechless with the first comment. Why would your man get condoms when you've had the plumbing removed. Wow!
Re: A Scandalous Countess (12:30pm February 17, 2012):
I'm a huge regency fan. never cared for the Georgian time period primarily because of the wigs. Yuck!
Re: The Night Is Mine (11:43pm February 16, 2012):
Love your own story. Burn out comes to many of us. Your books sounds good. I'd love to give it a try.
Re: Kismet (9:22pm February 15, 2012):
I just love the name Kismet. I haven't heard that in years!
Re: A Scandalous Countess (4:12pm February 11, 2012):
I am in the Regency and Victorian camp. I hate how men use to have to take off their wigs just to make love properly.
Re: Darkest Highlander (6:36pm February 6, 2012):
I do enjoy mixing a little supernatural with my history. Most Irish girls do, don't they? :D
Re: Alpha Instinct (9:48pm February 2, 2012):
I like the idea of paranormals as long as there are no vamps involved.
Re: Sins Of The Highlander (9:14pm January 12, 2012):
Why the 2 names? I never understood that especially since you also write historicals. Just curious.
Re: Bride By Mistake (10:33pm January 10, 2012):
Love your books. I'd love to win won.
Re: Pretty Persuasion (10:32pm January 9, 2012):
I usually try to finish books, but if it's taking me a very long time to even finish one chapter without falling asleep, I eventually give up.
Re: Hushed (12:27pm January 7, 2012):
My goal is similar but for walking or exercising. I never have time!!
Re: Hot Rain (10:04pm January 4, 2012):
You are such a prolific writer. how do you do it? I fell in love with your historicals. Never did on-line dating, but 2 of sisters found current beaus that way.
Re: The Angel Of Blythe Hall (10:53pm December 30, 2011):
This year I didn't get very much that was a surprise. Unfortunately most of my presents were prearranged with my husband and daughters.
Re: A Christmas Journey Home (12:05pm December 11, 2011):
My 14-year old daughter seems to be headed down your path. She's taking journalism as a freshman and is a voracious reader. Thanks for the post!
Re: Mistletoe and Margaritas (9:18am December 10, 2011):
I'd love to go back to Ireland and take a month off and explore Scotland too and Germany.
Re: Acquainted with the Night (11:24pm December 1, 2011):
Sounds amazing. A little like the Historian or something by Raymond Khoury. Right up my alley!
Re: The Earl's Mistaken Bride (10:15pm November 30, 2011):
I love historical fiction. Can't wait to read your story!
Re: Miss Darcy Falls in Love (7:20pm November 28, 2011):
Hi Sharon. I follow you over at Austen Authors. I just love your books!
Re: The Spy Who Left Me (12:19pm November 25, 2011):
Spending time at my in-laws - locked in the guest bedroom. I went downstairs today and asked if I could watch an old movie on TCM or AMC - in a room where no one else was in - and was told "no" even though my mother in law was in the kitchen reading the paper... She wanted to "watch" the news. No wonder I hate this place....
Re: A Crimson Warning (11:17pm November 24, 2011):
Sounds intriguing. I'm very thankful for my two beautiful daughters and my wonderful husband.
Re: The Storm That Is Sterling (9:43pm November 23, 2011):
Sounds a little bit like Christine Feehan's "Mind Game" series. I really enjoy those too!
Re: The Return Of The Stranger (7:07pm November 20, 2011):
I have no problem with the same themes being recycled. I loved Clueless when it first came out and immediately knew it was a retelling of Jane Austen's Emma.
Re: Under The Moon (11:41am November 19, 2011):
I don't mind stories with pets in them as long as they don't talk. It's one thing to communicate love and affection by saving the hero or heroine, it's quite another to give them thoughts.
Re: The Highlander's Heart (9:50pm November 16, 2011):
I think heroes who are tortured from their pasts tend to be a bit tedious, so I prefer stories where the hero is currently being tortured by the leading lady. :D
Re: Shadowlander (8:55pm November 12, 2011):
I like Dalls and Roarke too!
Re: Unleashed (8:51am October 10, 2011):
I always enjoy reading the YA Jennifer Scales books by Anthony Aloni.
Re: Chosen By Fate (1:04am October 10, 2011):
I'm not a huge Grisham fan. I prefer books with a bit of history in them.
Re: The Norse King's Daughter (9:35am October 2, 2011):
I forgot to mention that I listen to books on CD when I don't seem to have the time to read. I'll listen commuting, gardening and sometimes taking a walk. I'll only read historical romance, but I'll listen to several other genres, like Steve Berry and James Rollins.
Re: The Norse King's Daughter (9:24pm October 1, 2011):
Linda Howard's Mr. Perfect usually gets me out of a slump. It's my "go to" repeat fixer upper.
Re: The Seduction of Sophie Seacrest (10:16pm September 26, 2011):
Sounds just like my type of story! I'd love to read it.
Re: Fitzwilliam Darcy, Rock Star (9:46pm September 21, 2011):
Sounds like a fun read! I love the music.
Re: The Rake And The Recluse (8:36am September 19, 2011):
How fun! I'm not an e-book reader, but additional photos can only enhance the words - assuming the models are as described. More often than I like to admit, cover models on paperbacks are not like the hero at all as described (blond vs. brunette, etc).
Re: Tempted (9:12pm September 15, 2011):
Your books sound like Percy Jackson for the grown up set. :D
Re: Out in Blue (11:06pm September 13, 2011):
I love time travel and ghost stories. :)
Re: No Proper Lady (10:56pm September 12, 2011):
This book sounds so good and exactly the type of book I really enjoy reading.
Re: Lord and Lady Spy (10:55pm September 8, 2011):
Your book sounds great! Cute Jackman is my favorite actor. He's a great actor and very versatile. For women, I really like Kate Winslet and Rachel Weitz.
Re: The Wedding Affair (11:45pm September 6, 2011):
Hy husband builds dioramas of WWII tanks and airplanes. He needs a little fairy too to dust his models. :)
Re: Sweet Justice (3:53pm September 3, 2011):
I really enjoy romantic suspense too! But, I do not like all the gruesome details. It's enough for me to know that someone died.
Re: Lady Of The English (10:59pm September 2, 2011):
I generally really enjoy reading stories set in the 12th century. So, you ladies sound right up my alley!
Re: Serendipity (12:12pm September 1, 2011):
Love your books! They are fun, sexy reads. Can't wait to read this one either!
Re: Redeeming The Rogue (9:14pm August 30, 2011):
Hi Donna. I'm loving your books. The Education of Mrs. Brimley is one of my all time favorite books. Please keep books like these coming!
Re: Notorious (11:17pm July 29, 2011):
Sounds like so much fun. A historical twist on the movie with Matthew McC and Sarah Jessica Parker from a few years ago.
Re: The Genesis Key (10:36pm July 27, 2011):
Your book sounds very interesting. I don't want to live longer. My body is already falling apart and I'm not even 50 yet!
Re: A Gentleman Never Tells (10:22pm July 25, 2011):
I've seen a few typos here and there, but never like when I read an e-book. It's like it wasn't edited at all or even spell-check run.
Re: Undead And Undermined (1:14pm July 23, 2011):
I love reading anything of yours, even when you are whining on a blog! :) I kind of miss the first published plethora of releases though. You just can't write fast enough for me.
Re: Wild and Unruly (9:05am July 2, 2011):
I don't believe Time Travel is possible, but it's fun to think about it and use our imaginations as if it were. I have 2 favorite TT books - The Time Traveler's Wife and Outlander. Both moved me when I read them and I thought about them for months afterwards - still do!
Re: Never Cry Wolf (9:03am July 2, 2011):
How cute! I really enjoyed reading this post. Thank you!
Re: Louisa And The Missing Heiress (11:49pm June 15, 2011):
Definitely! Mr. Darcy is primary. I've also imagined Queen Victoria sleuthing in her youth.
Re: Hard Bitten (11:07pm June 14, 2011):
Your books sound like such a fun read. I visit our library about once a week, if not more than that. I usually get books on CD there, as my commute would be unbearable with them!
Re: Blood Of The Wicked (11:55pm June 13, 2011):
This book sounds good. Ever since reading A Discovery of Witches, I've wanted to read more "witch" stories.
Re: When Tony Met Adam (12:39pm June 12, 2011):
Hey, Suzanne. I've been following you for years. I love the Troubleshooters series and all of your "side" projects including your off-Broadway play. It's nice to see you take such an active role in supporting what you believe in. I look forward to reading this book, as well as all the ones to come in the future!
Re: Cover of Darkness (4:33pm June 5, 2011):
I've been reading Suzanne Brockmann for years and she writes stories about Navy SEALS. I'd love to read your books.
Re: Forced to Kill (9:07am June 4, 2011):
I've read Suzanne Brockmann for years so I'm all for a good SEAL story! And, I listen to about 50 audio books a year. I love them!
Re: The Darkest Sin (8:24pm June 1, 2011):
I tried to catch a show or two and site see some really old historical sites. I'd take my hubby of 20 years. :D He's never been.
Re: Awaken The Highland Warrior (12:02pm May 19, 2011):
This book sounds wonderful!
Re: Deadly Promises (8:27pm May 16, 2011):
I love stories about Navy SEALS. Suzanne Brockmann is one of my favorite authors and I've read all of her Troubleshooter books. Unfortunately, she can only write one or two per year. So, I'm always looking for other authors to fill the void. Your story sounds just like the ticket!
Re: Grimoire (11:26pm May 15, 2011):
Your books sound great. You are a new author to me and your books sound very interesting. I'd love to read one!
Re: Follow My Lead (11:34pm May 5, 2011):
Friends to lovers. That's my story over and over and I never get tired of it.
Re: My Favorite Countess (12:56pm April 28, 2011):
No, I don't like doctors who are the focus of the story. Except for Markus Wellby, M.D., and M.A.S.H., I don't think I've even watched any Doctors' shows in the last 20 years.
Re: The Devil in Disguise (10:03pm April 23, 2011):
I'm more inclined to read a book if one of my favorite authors recommends the story or another author. Let's face it, it take an author much longer to write a story than it does to read it. What are we supposed to do while you are writing your next story?
Re: Hidden Embers (10:17am April 22, 2011):
I really enjoy Fall. The changing of the leaves and cooler nights. I'm not a huge air conditioner fan and I like to sleep with the windows open, which in the summer is too hot. Plus, there are some flowers that bloom in the Fall and are strikenly beautiful.
Re: Blood Sin (10:14am April 22, 2011):
I'm really tired of all the lusty vampire stories. Your book sounds different. Good for you!
Re: The Return Of Black Douglas (8:38am April 2, 2011):
Being of Irish and Scottish decent, I loved this post! Thank you for sharing what you learned.
Re: Highland Heat (11:30pm March 21, 2011):
Congratulations on your new release! I love Highlander stories!
Re: An Unlikely Countess (11:25am March 19, 2011):
I really enjoy your historical fiction stories. They are great!
Re: Angel's Rest (7:18pm March 12, 2011):
I like series too without too much turmoil. I have enough angst in my real life and read to escape.
Re: These Things Hidden (6:21pm February 6, 2011):
Right now I want to strangle my 15 year old. So, to me at this moment in time, it's very frustrating to be a mother!
Re: The Mysterious Lady Law (9:00am February 5, 2011):
I've never been into stories with too much sex in them - I find it distracting. It's my experience that men don't write the mushy page after page love scenes in their stories that many women thriller writers do. I like that!
Re: I Dream of Genies (7:12pm January 6, 2011):
Sounds like fun! I'd love to read one of your books. Congrats on the release!
Re: Real Vampires Have More To Love (7:29pm January 4, 2011):
Sounds like fun! Please count me in the contest. Thanks!
Re: Haunted Honeymoon (8:56pm December 27, 2010):
The Mammoth Book of Scottish Romance would be most excellent on a cold winter's night. I enjoy reading anthologies because you can read an entire story at night or during your lunch hour. :D
Re: The Irish Warrior (8:55pm December 21, 2010):
I am so happy to see your blog here, Kris. I'm currently reading your book, The Conqueror. I've just read this part:
"And he knew it to be trash. If a thing could so corrupt a man's intentions, it was trash. Refuse. Carrion."
I just love your writing. Keep those books coming!!!!!
Re: The Viking's Captive (9:31pm December 19, 2010):
I have several books that I re-read from time to time. Many of Julie Garwood's historical fiction make the list. As does Nora Roberts' Ardmore and Irish-born trilogies. I've re-read Catherine Coulter's Sherbrooke Bride series several times too. I find that contemporary fiction and thrillers "keep" as long.
Re: Holiday Sparks (11:01pm November 25, 2010):
I love historical romance because it takes me away from my everyday life of hard work, messy house and teenagers!
Re: The 4th Victim (10:06pm November 14, 2010):
I really wish I lived closer so I could have attend Rearders n' Ritas!
Re: The Forever Queen (11:09pm November 13, 2010):
I love this era of history. Didn't really pay attention much during high school or college, but now that I'm an avid reader, I really enjoy reading stories set in way back when - pre 12th Century. I hope I win! :)
Re: Deadly Intent (11:37pm November 10, 2010):
No doubt for me - Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice. I see myself in her and I quote from that book all the time.
Re: Casting About (10:48pm November 9, 2010):
One of the reasons I prefer reading historical fiction is so I can escape my everyday life. I don't like non-fiction books at all because they are just too boring. So, to answer your question, I'm in the fiction camp 100%! I want to be entertained when I read and if it means a far-flung idea, so be it. :D
Re: While Galileo Preys (10:43pm November 9, 2010):
I wished I lived closer so I could visit the Rita gathering and your fundraiser!
Re: Holiday Grind (11:06am November 6, 2010):
Sounds like an enjoyable read. I really enjoy humor in my books.
Re: The Devil She Knows (11:03am November 6, 2010):
I went to Ireland in 1990 with a friend of mine. I'd been talking about it for over 15 years and finally took my husband and 2 daughters there in 2007. It was the best vacation ever.
Re: Sinful in Satin (12:52pm October 2, 2010):
When I was in high school, I use to dream a lot. Now, it's not so frequent. Maybe it's because I'm so tired all the time! Sorry, but I have no idea about climbing ladders - maybe you are trying to reach the top of your "game"???
Re: When Wicked Craves (2:43pm September 30, 2010):
I live in a Stepford Wives neighborhood. Not very many of people work here, and as one of the few working mom's, I feel like an outsider even though I've lived here over 7 years!
Re: The Spurned Viscountess (2:40pm September 30, 2010):
Gothic historical romance is one of my favorite genres! My favorite is Catherine Coulter's The Countess. I think it was one of her first books ever! I've love win a copy of yours, Shelley!
I do like a little mystery in my historicals and the only paranormal elements that I truly enjoy are "ghost" stories.
Re: The Bride's Necklace (9:30pm September 19, 2010):
Your covers are definitely great eye candy! I really loved your Necklace trilogy. I can't believe they've been out long enough to earn themselves a reissue!
Re: Wicked Highlander (8:41pm September 15, 2010):
Hi Donna! I could swear that I have this book already, but I don't have it on my list. Maybe it's because I've been secretly drooling over the cover for months now.... :D
I definitely believe in King Arthur. But the one "fantasy" that I can't shake is Atlantis. Ever since I've been in grade school, I can't help but feel it was real. Steve Berry recently had one of his stories explore this idea and I was so enthralled.
Re: Royal Blood (1:50pm September 5, 2010):
With a name like Molly, the heroine can't be bad. :) I love having a name that identifies with whom I am - a true blue Irish American.
Re: Assassin's Heart (10:31pm August 25, 2010):
I believe in past lives. My 3 year old daughter use to talk German in her sleep. How else do you explain that? :)
Re: Nemesis (12:00pm August 22, 2010):
Everyone loves free books indeed! I just wish I had more time to read them!
Re: The 1st Wife (10:15pm August 9, 2010):
I agree so totally! I usually like reading at night to relax and get frustrated when I don't get any reading done over the week-end. But, this week-end, my BFF came down for a visit from Michigan and we just hang out and had such a great time. We stayed up late and slept in and I feel wonderful!
Re: The Goddess of Fried Okra (10:34pm August 4, 2010):
My grandmother reared me and my 4
sisters. She took us 5 girls in when she
was 55 years old. The oldest was 12
and the youngest was 5. She was a
saint, although I didn't feel that way
when I was in high school!
Re: The Smuggler And The Society Bride (10:33pm August 4, 2010):
I read to escape my dull and boring life,
pure and simple. That's why I love
reading historicals because I can imagine

Congratulations on getting published!
James Rollins is one of my favorite
authors, so you book definitely sounds
like something I'd enjoy. I'd love to win
Do you think it will be available on CD?
I travel for work and really enjoy
listening to books on CD.
Re: Tomb With A View (9:02pm July 19, 2010):
Your books sounds wonderful. I've love to
give them a try. I love good old fashioned
Re: The Wild Irish Sea (10:12pm July 8, 2010):
I love Top 10 lists - I have ever since
college watching David Letterman 25
years ago... Your book sounds wonderful.
I just love Irish scenery and Celtic
Re: The Master & the Muses (10:09pm June 28, 2010):
I agree with Brenda, if the hero is too
perfect, he's unbelievable. I like my hero's
to have a "past" so when they are
redeemed, they have a reason to be
grateful for what they have.

Welcome Becky! You picked a great group
to intern with. I love the blogs on here
better than anywhere!
Re: Hidden Wives (1:18pm June 27, 2010):
I love the Haunting series by Erin Quinn.
both Haunting Beauty and Haunting
Warrior are so well written, with a
sophisticated prose. I just love them!
Re: Sworn To Protect (8:15pm June 25, 2010):
Wimpy women are the pits. I've stopped
reading many a book because the
heroines just weren't strong enough.
Re: Sworn To Protect (10:24pm June 23, 2010):
Sounds like a great book. I love historical
romance, but lately books are getting too
sexed up. I'm hoping since your book is
billed as a "Christian" novel that it won't
have too much. So, I'd love to read it!
Re: Smooth Talking Stranger (10:36pm June 20, 2010):
For Father's Day, my hubby got to pick
what we did all day. From lunch and
dinner, to a movie of his choice. I
ended up sleeping through the A Team
(I would have rather seen Letters to
Juliet again about The Juliet Club), but
it was his day after all!

I'm with Lisa above. I don't watch book

too cheesy and they put too much "lust"

book looks just up my alley!

much into the mistaken identity stuff. I
feel rather frustrated while reading those

Congratulations of finally getting
published! It's a dream of mine, but I
don't have the stamina.
Re: Blown Away (10:49am May 30, 2010):
Great post! I actually don't like
trilogies, but rather "related" stories.
For example, Julie Garwood had
several historical stories that had
connecting characters, but you could
read them out of order (The Lion's
Lady, The Gift, Castles and Guardian
Angel - to name just one grouping).
What I like most about connected
stories is that it's like a new story in a
familiar and friendly setting. It's like
coming home after spending a few
years at college out of town.
With trilogies, you have to read them
in order to understand the history and
development of the characters. Plus,
the middle book usually leaves you
hanging - I hate cliffhangers in books!
The best/worst example of this was
Nora Roberts' Blood Brothers. The
middle book left you with the battle
still to come and the only thing
"closed" was the relationship between
the 2 love interests. Plus, it seemed
like it was a year between the 2nd and
3rd book! Cliffhangers like this one is
why both of my daughters will only
read a trilogy when all books are
published. I on the other hand usually
don't wait and that's why I get so
frustrated with them.
As far as my favorite - the Bride Series
by Catherine Coulter. Many reasons -
it didn't feel like a trilogy while
reading them. No unfinished business
between the stories. And best of all -
she wrote many related stories
afterwards! I loved all 10 books - the
most recent the Wizards Daughter
only a couple years ago.
Re: Dead in the Family (1:18pm May 29, 2010):
I just started Erin Quinn's Haunting
Beauty, so I decided to read all of her
books this summer. I'll start with the
two Haunting books, and then go back
and read Echoes and then Whispers, if
I can find it.

I wish I didn't work full time. I'd love to
read a book a day!
Re: His At Night (6:33pm May 25, 2010):
My very first historical fiction was
Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. It got me
hooked on the genre. I love learning
about history now - as long as it timed
before WWII. :D
Re: Live To Tell (9:25am May 16, 2010):
I use to miss things all the time when I
lived in LA. My whole family live in
WV/OH area and living out there was
torcher. We moved back 6 years ago
just to be closer so we can have family

terrible when your daughters don't
even know who their grandparents

I'd just like to see my ancestors. That's

Every now and then, I like to read
something other than romance -
usually a thriller w/ historical
elements. This month I discovered
James Rollins and his Sigma Force
team, who are investigating the stolen
bones of the 3 wise men. Very
Re: On Shadow Beach (9:02pm April 7, 2010):
Congrats on your new books!
Historical romance is usually what
draws me to a book. I'm not really into
the contemporary easy reading books.
I like things a little more challenging.
As far as cover art is concerned, pics
of Fabio is a definite turn off! Your
cover art looks really good and I've
bought books that look very similar.
Re: Big Girl (12:33pm March 21, 2010):
I can't believe the Promise was your
first adult book! Mine too. It is the
first book that I read for pleasure in
college and is what got me hooked on
reading. I stayed up all night reading it
and finished at 5 am!

One of the best books I ever read was
"Cry No More" by Linda Howard. I bawled
my eyes out more than once during that

If instrumental music is playing, that's

Sounds great! I love humor in books! I
agree that chic lit is very tiring and after
about my 2nd "city girl" book, I was
through with the genre. Good luck!

I definitely have my "brain candy"

Historical fiction is my brain candy - I

For the hard reads, I like books with
elements of history, like Steve Berry's
The Alexandria Link.
And then there are my middle of the
road books, which are romantic
thrillers or suspense by authors like
Linda Howard and Carla Neggers.

Just kidding! Cats are too aloof. I like

He's my V-day hero.
