What Are You Reading? (+ Suzanne Enoch Giveaway)

WAYR-New

Casee: I am reading Cross Breed by Lora Leigh. This is Cassie Sinclair’s book. Part Wolf, part Coyote, part psychic, Cassie can pretty much do anything. She’s bad ass. I’m really liking it because she’s such a strong heroine. I’m also really liking the hero. Not too many heroes would do, but this one definitely gives her a run for her money. Of course there are things that have annoyed me, but I’ve (mostly) been able to move past them.

I’m also listening to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on audio. I spend a lot of time in the car commuting and I’m so glad I decided to listen to this book. I’m really liking it. I am just about halfway through it. The narrator is pretty darn good, which is huge.

Holly: My reading is all over the place right now. I’m still bouncing around from one book to another. I finished The Duke with the Dragon Tattoo by Kerrigan Byrne. I really loved the first half, but the second became bogged down by the flowery prose and focus on the internal angst of the characters. I also finished listening to Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely. I really enjoyed the overall story and the narrators were so wonderful (Richard Armitage is one!). I highly recommend the audiobook. At Tracy’s recommendation I read Lumberjack Werebear by T.S. Joyce. It was a light, pretty funny PNR. Perfect for cleansing my palate between reads. Also because of Tracy, I ended up rereading Saving Grace by Julie Garwood. I discovered this past weekend that Tracy had never read it. How is that even possible, you ask? I really don’t know. But not to worry, she read it and loved it.

I’m currently reading When a Duke Loves a Woman by Lorraine Heath. I’m only a few chapters in, but so far it’s really good.

Rowena: This week was a pretty good week in reading for me. I finished Two Weeks Notice by Whitney G, which I didn’t like nearly as much as Ames did and then I finished listening to When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon, which was super cute. I did a quick re-read of Castles by Julie Garwood, which was lovely and due to some discussion on an online book club that I’m in. After that, I read Under Control by Shannon Stacey and that was yet another fabulous straight up contemporary that I enjoyed. Now I’m listening to Wanderlust by Lauren Blakely and reading The Governess Game by Tessa Dare. I’m not that far into either book but I’m enjoying them so far and am hopeful they’ll continue to be great reads.

Happy reading, everyone!

A Rogue For Every Lady

London, 1817: Stuck in a Mayfair ballroom, thanks to his lovestruck brother, Highlander Arran MacLawry wants nothing but a bit of distraction from an arranged betrothal—and a clever auburn-haired lass in a vixen's mask promises just that . . . until he discovers that she's the granddaughter of the Campbell, chief of clan MacLawry's longtime rival. Despite their families' grudging truce, falling for fiery Mary Campbell is a notion too outlandish even for this Highlander…

The Thrill Of The Forbidden

Raised on tales of savage MacLawrys, Mary is stunned to realize the impressively strapping man in the fox's mask is one of them. Surely the enemy shouldn't have such a broad chest, and such a seductive brogue? Not that her curiosity matters—any dalliance between them is strictly forbidden, and she's promised to another. But with the crackling spark between them ready to catch flame, love is worth every risk…

    Recent reads here ~

    — re-read Martha Wells’ novella All Systems Red (which won the 2017 Nebula Award for Best Novella) and then read, for the first time, Artificial Condition. I enjoyed them both and look forward to reading more in this series called The Murderbot Diaries.
    — read Chaos Station by Kelly Jensen and Jenn Burke. I enjoyed this science fiction romance featuring two men, but (since I’d heard such good reviews) I’d hoped for a bit more.
    — read the short work (57 pages) Bonds of Fire by Sophie Duncan which happens to be currently free to Kindle readers. It was okay, but it’s not something I expect to re-read.
    — read A Fantastic Holiday Season: The Gift of Stories edited by Kevin J. Anderson and Keith J. Olexa since the anthology contained a Briggs’ story that I had not previously read. I quite enjoyed ‘Unappreciated Gifts’ which featured Patricia Briggs’ character Asil; the rest of the stories in the anthology were a mixed bag .
    — Helen Russell’s The Year of Living Danishly: Uncovering the Secrets of the World’s Happiest Country: which I found to be a quick and enjoyable read.
    — browsed through If You Can Doodle, You Can Paint: Transforming Simple Drawings into Works of Art by Diane Culhane was an enjoyable book to browse through. I will say that the author’s doodles look more artistic than mine, but I did get a few ideas.
    — re-read, with pleasure, P.S. I Spook You by S.E. Harmon which is a male/male romance with ghosts.
    — Penny Reid’s contemporary romance Beard Science (Winston Brothers Book 3) was an enjoyable read. While it’s third in a series, it’s the first I’ve read and stood alone well.
    — re-read Amy Crook’s Unboxed. It’s a m/m/m romance in a very interesting world.

  2. Anita H.

    I just binged on books 2 and 3 of Sarina Bowen’s Brooklyn Bruisers series. Have to say I really enjoyed Hard Hitter (book 2) more than Pipe Dreams (book 3) for two reasons: 1) I enjoyed Doulie and Ari as a couple more than Lauren and Beacon 2) I think it has to more to do with the hockey aspect of the book since I expect more sports in a sports romance book especially with a very important playoff series that just got glossed over in book 3 which was very disappointing.

  3. I am sorry to hear that The Duke with the Dragon Tattoo wasn’t a win win for you Holly, I was really hoping you would love it. But I am glad you liked it for the most part even if the later half fell short for you. But I also just started Lorraine Heath’s new book and I am only on chapter six but I am really liking it so far. The heroine is badass yet can be kind and genuine with the hero which I am loving. Its rare to see a heroine so commanding as she is but I am loving the fact that she runs a tavern and has such a compassionate heart

    Rowena—I love Julie Garwood’s historicals. Its a shame that she went contemporary and they aren’t that good (at least for me I haven’t liked them) And Castles is such a good book. I tagged you and everyone on the online club on Discord for a chat if you like 🙂 I would love to talk it over with you. 🙂

    I’ve been getting caught up on my tbr: finished the first 4 of Brooklyn Ann’s Scandals with Bite Regency paranormal series. Now I’m reading Sally MacKensie’s Naked Nobility series.

  5. Ada

    I’m reading The Knave of Hearts by Elizabeth Boyle. What I didn’t realize was this one occurs at the same time as the previous book in the series (The Viscount Who Lived Down The Lane) and makes me want to read that one again!

  6. Jana Leah

    I’m still re-reading Deborah Harkness’ The Book of Life. I’d forgotten how much I love this trilogy.

  7. Jana Leah

    I am also reading Ellery Adams’ Writing All Wrongs. This is a great series that has gotten better with each book.

  8. Jana Leah

    I’m still reading Writing all Wrongs by Ellery Adams. Should have it finished by tomorrow.
