Currently reading:

PB: Can't Stand the Heat by Loiusa Edwards (ARC) – A very sassy fun read so far! Reviewing for Nancy Berland, Publicist.

Audible: Silent Thunder by Iris Johansen and Roy Johansen – Looks like another solid Romantic Suspense from IJ (although I haven’t gotten to the romance part yet!) My own TBR.


  • Awakening Allaire by Margie Church – More erotic than I am accustomed to but nicely done and a great thriller story! Review to be posted on my blog later this week.
  • Maxwell’s Mansion by Donna McClaire – Contemporary. Reviewing for YGR.
  • Dreams Do Come True by E. A. West – Sweet Romance. (Another book I won from the Friday CTR Chat!)

Audio CD: Age of the Unthinkable by Joshua Cooper may go on hold while I read/listen to Ravens by George Dawes Green – just received to review for YGR.


  1. Oooo...Leslie Dicken's book sounds really good!

  2. J. Kaye - Actually I thought of you as I was reading Beauty Tempts the Beast and Awakening Allaire. I think they are both books you would like! The Beauty review is posted now here:

    I'll be posting the Awakening review here at the blog by the end of the week.

  3. LOLOL! Really? I'm going now to check out the link. This is great!


  4. Have another question. Is Beauty Tempts the Beast or Awakening Allaire part of a series? I didn't see that with the first book, but wanted to double check. Sometimes I get so excited about a book that I totally blank that info out.

  5. Hi J. Kaye - The two books are not by the sam author and not related at all. Beauty is a sensual historical romance and Awakening is a contemporay "sexy thriller". Both were good in plot and characters; Beauty was sultry and Awakening is definitely steamy...more so than what I usually read but very tastefully done.

  6. I got that, the part about being by different authors. I just wanted to make sure neither were part of a series. Or if they were, these were the first.

  7. Oh - Sorry I misunderstood! I do not think Beauty was a part of a series. Yes Awakening is the first - I just learned in a blog article yesterday that the author is doing a sequel called Avenging Allaire!
