Let me say THIS about THAT...
Oh joy! Oh rapture. I've been reading people. READING!
While there's nothing particularly groundbreaking about IN BED WITH THE DEVIL by Lorraine Heath it hit the spot and was an enjoyable read for me over the weekend. It was a bit over the top having characters with names from Dickens' OLIVER TWIST. Personally I found this device a distraction. I never really got the point to it. Even so, I still found this an enjoyable Victorian historical.
However, I then read DANGEROUS SECRETS by Lisa Marie Rice. This is a very good hot summer scorcher. Although you might squirm like a worm on a hook if you try to read it at the beach. There's a small town librarian named...wait for it...Charity Prewitt. Charity is smart, kind, caring and stifled by her small town life but committed to taking care of her elderly aunt and uncle.
Nick Ames is an operative assigned to Charity to find out what she knows about a Russian mob boss hiding out in said small town because of Charity's likeness to a former lover.
Once again nothing ground breaking, but a fun, hot and sexy escape in the sizzling summer heat. I enjoyed it so much I think I'll recommend it to GG to read.
I've just cracked open the new Linda Howard book, DEATH ANGEL. I'm about 100 pages in. As many reviews have already noted it's a bit different. Whether or not it will pay off for me yet, I don't know. The title of the book had little impact on me before I started reading it, now it's taken on all sorts of sinister thoughts. More on that later I'm sure.
What I'm trying to do is stay away from the bookstore the next couple of weeks and catch up a bit on my reading and writing. One can only live and hope.
It's been a while since I did a reading check. What are you reading right now?
