some of the most amazing books lately. I am really enjoying myself. lol Let’s see,
The Secret Passion of Simon Blackwell, by Sabrina Jeffries, very emotional and intense.
The Leopard Prince by Elizabeth Hoyt, the hero calls the heroine “my lady” through the whole book and the clash of proper and improper provides the most thrilling, passionate story. I can’t wait for The Serpent Prince.
Tempting Danger by Eileen Wilks, with a “sensitive” detective and a werewolf prince.This is a great urban fantasy series. My dh found Mortal Danger for me last night and I can’t wait to dive in.
Raintree: Inferno by Linda Howard. Wow. I love anything by Linda Howard, really. I loved this one so much I can’t wait to start the next, which dh found last night. Raintree: Haunted by Linda Winstadt-Jones. Just reading the exerpt at the back of Inferno lit my imagination as the hero sees ghosts and is visited by his soon-to-be daughter.
Now, here are just 3, almost five. I know I’ve read more. I’ve really enjoyed Cathy Maxwell, Katie MacAlister, and more. However I must admit, in two of the books I’ve read, not necessarily ones I’ve mentioned, the hero in one and the heroine in the other either retched or outright vomited. Then, within a page or two, without a scene break, toothbrush or water or food or anything, they kissed. Deep, tongue-sucking, their breath is so sweet, kisses.
Not many things pull me out of a story. In fact, I’m sure I’ve skipped this same faux pas quite a few times in the past, but I can’t anymore. I think it’s one of those things writers need to look for. No sudden three-hand scenes (which i recently found in Betrayed and quickly fixed) and no deep kisses after bouts of nausea, retching or vomiting. Eeewww.
Sad that this needs to be said. But also kind of funny.
