    I’m currently re-reading BORN IN SIN by Kinley MacGregor. No wonder I fell in love with Sin. He is one awesome hero.

    I’m currently reading At Her Command by Marcia James and Digital Fortress by Dan Brown. I haven’t gotten too far into either book, but I’m enjoying them both so far.

    I’ve finally found almost all my Karen Marie Moning books and caught up with all except Spell of the Highlander (still looking for the right box). I just finished two, The Immortal Highlander and like Adam Black’s story a lot, though my favorite of the Highlander series is still Kiss of the Highlander. The other, FaeFever – I’m really liking this darker series, which does tie in with the Highlander Druids, even with the controversial cliffhanger ending of this one, and I like the antihero, and am starting to get some idea of who Jericho Baron might really be. I know some seem to prefer her lighter Highlander series, and I love the lighter books, too, but I can get into those with the darker edge just as much, even if they focus more of a plot and less or slower-building romance throughout the series. At one time I read more suspense with no or very little romance, now I’m liking fantasy and urban fantasy more and more, maybe that’s why, the added intrigue in the paranormal or UF underlying, ongong plots (like CL Wilson’s series or Singh’s Psy series) and don’t mind not having the main focus of every book being the romance, (but it or the possibility is there which gives me added enjoyment), I’m looking for the unique and very different/unknown in the paranormals/fantasy, so I’m not always going to expect the more simplistic plot/HEA. I get that from my historicals and regencies, or the lighter and fun paranormals, but these darker, and sometimes more complex, plots and characters make for more variety in reading. Of course you get a really good romance and HEA in Nalini’s series along with that ongoing plot, which is why it’s one of my favorite series.

    I just started reading Seduce Me at Sunrise by Lisa Kleypas. So far, so good.

    I’m just about finished with THE CHRISTMAS COUNTESS by Adrienne Basso. I’ve enjoyed it very much (thanks, Buffie!).

    I just finished reading RIDE THE FIRE by Pamela Clare, and it was amazing. I don’t usually read historicals, but this one was highly recommended and I can see why. I’m just starting Dark Magic by Cheyenne McCray and I’m loving it so far!

    Hello ladies! I had a lot of fun trying to figure out the answers to the contests today. What fun!!! This is the only one that I have any chance with though…LOL. I’m reading Lisa Kleypas’s “A Wallflower Christmas” right now. She is one of my absolute favorites and I love catching up with all my old Wallflower friends. Happy holidays to you all!

    I’m reading JONATHAN STRANGE AND MR. NORRELL, at the behest of one of my friends. It’s about 800 pages long and is about two magicians in Regency England. Fortunately, the story started picking up around page 450 and now it’s pretty interesting.

    I wouldn’t recommend you run out and buy it, though.

    Margay I really enjoyed Seduced Me at Sunrise – but then again, I’d be hard pressed to pick a Kleypas book I didn’t enjoy.

    Buffie -Kinley MacGregor’s Sin, is one of my favorite heroes. And I do so love it when I enjoy reading a book just as much the second time around.

    Angie – A Wallflower Christmas – what a great coda to a great series. It was so much fun re-visiting the wallflowers and meeting the brother.

    Amy I just finished Beth Kery’s Dec release Wicked Burn – Loved it! She’s a new to me author, and now I’m gloaming her back list. so please do let me know how you like Come to Me Freely.

    pambook, KMM – one of my favorites. And I too love both her lighter and darker series. It’s funny how much romance has changed in the last 15 years and between the urban fantasy, fantasy, extended series, non- HEA, erotica. erotic romance, historicals, contemporaries, romantic suspense, paranormals and woman’s fiction, there is such a wide variety to choose from. I go through cycles where I’ll read only romantic suspense , and then I’ll do a fantasy binge them I’m off to nothing but paranormals, then I’ll switch to erotic romance – I go through phases and I find one sub-genre and that’s all I want to read. Lucky for me there is so much to choose from.

    Cheryl, I’ve been wanting to read Ride the Fire – so now I’ll have to pick that one up!

    Katiebabs and Andrea – I’ve just finished three erotic romances so I think I’m up for an historical or two next, thanks for the recommendations.

    Karin, I love Dan Brown – and I was wondering how Digital Fortress was – let us know how you like it when you finish it.

    heidenkind – I haven’t yet had the courage to pick up Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell – you’ll have to fill me in on that one.

    On the recommendation of both Anna Campbell and Kati I read Anne Stuart’s Black Ice. Now, I have to say the hero did scare me a bit, and I was very hard pressed to figure out how he would ever redeem himself – but Ms. Stuart pulled it off and I’m ready to read the next book in the series. For me the book read a lot like a screenplay and it felt a lot like the Bourne Identity – which is a good thing. It was action packed, mysterious, and romantic. A winning combination.

    I’m in the middle of reading Full Exposure by Tracy Wolff (her January release) – still can’t figure out who the bad guy is – so that is a definite plus. So far I’m intrigued.

    Just today I finished The Christmas Countess by Adrienne Basso. It was a wonderful historical that really gets you into the Christmas spirit!

    I’m reading Christie Craig’s “Divorced, Desperate and Dating”.

    I’m reading Wild Sight by Loucinda McGary then I’m going to read Demon Hunger by Eve Silver.

    I’m currently reading Frostbite by Richelle Mead.

    Iโ€™m currently re-reading BORN IN SIN by Kinley MacGregor. No wonder I fell in love with Sin. He is one awesome hero.

    Buffie – I just love Sin. Now I’m tempted to put down Frostbite and delve into my boxes (where all my books are currently) and re-read Born in Sin.

    Heidenkind – I tried to read Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell a few years ago. I didn’t get anywhere near Page 450 so you have my complete admiration ๐Ÿ™‚

    Orannia–if my friend hadn’t bought it for me and really wanted me to like it, I would have given up on it a long time ago. It’s pretty tough, but I do have to admit it’s starting to get good now.

    I just got the Lofty book, too, hoping to get to it this week, sounds good. I’m hoping the To Seduce a Sinner is in my mailbox tomorrow, that’s one I’m really looking forward to reading.

    Marisa, Ride the Fire was really good, do try it. Even though I love historicals, that setting is not usually what I pick up, but Pamela Clare and especially Ride the Fire I recommend, also. Have to get caught up on her last few.

    I liked those Bourne books, good comparison to Black Ice.

    Lindsey I haven’t read either Undercover or Black Widow yet, but both Dane and MacKenzie are authors I always like to read, so thanks for the suggestion.

    kh – I’ve never read Cherie Whitefeather – but now I’ll have to check it out.

    orannia – I’ve read Richelle Mead’s Storm Born and really liked it – I’m just beginning to gloam her back list.

    We’re going to keep this thread open today,for those of you who have not gotten a chance to respond. We’ll announce the random winner tonight. (Saturday evening 11/29/08) so you can keep posting until then.

    I’m reading PHANTOM’S TOUCH by Julie Leto. This one is for review, so I’m trying to finish and write my review by the end of the weekend, Marisa. So far, I’m really enjoying it.

    Orannia — you really should dive through those boxes and find BORN IN SIN again. I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying this book again. And Sin, well, he just makes me sigh!
