What Are You Reading? (+ Karen Ranney Giveaway)

Casee: This has been an ah-maze-ing reading week for me. TBH, I don’t know what is going on.

I’m currently reading Blood Truth by J.R. Ward. This is a book in her Black Dagger Legacy series. They are the recruits that are in training. I really enjoy this series. I haven’t gotten that far into it, but what I have read I really liked.

I’m still glomming Meghan March on audio. I listened to four of her books this week. I’m now listening to Real Sexy by Meghan March which is the second book in her Real Dirty Duet. I’m not liking this Duet as much as the others I’ve read/listened to, but it’s still good.

Holly: I had another slow reading week. I tell ya, between work and kid stuff I barely have time to breathe, much less read. I’m hopeful someday I’ll get back to it. Thank goodness for audiobooks I can listen to in the car, at practices and at work. Otherwise, I’d have read nothing this week.

I reread a couple books; Mystery Man and Broken Dove by Kristen Ashley and Repeat by Kylie Scott. Aside from that I finished The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook (so good!) and listened to Good Girl by Lauren Layne (it was awful) and Hot as Puck by Lili Valente (I liked it).

I’m currently listening to Trade Me by Courtney Milan. I’m not quite halfway through but I’m enjoying it so far.

Rowena: I’ve been in training all week on a new position at work so I haven’t been reading much of anything. The only thing that I read this week was The Iron Duke (Iron Seas #1) by Meljean Brook and I really enjoyed that but other than that, I haven’t read anything.

I’m starting Coming Up Roses by Staci Hart and Water Bound by Christine Feehan, wish me luck on that.

From New York Times Bestselling Author Karen Ranney comes the first book in a royally romantic and deeply emotional new series about taking risks and allowing the power to love satisfy the questions of the heart...

Undercover as a majordomo, spy Adam Drummond has infiltrated Marsley House with one purpose only—to plunder its mysteries and gather proof that the late Duke of Marsley was an unforgivable traitor to his country. At the same time, Adam is drawn to a more beguiling puzzle: the young and still-grieving duchess—a beauty with impenetrable secrets of her own. For Drummond, uncovering them without exposing his masquerade will require the most challenging and tender moves of his career.

That a servant can arouse such passion in her is too shocking for Suzanne Whitcomb, Duchess of Marsley, to consider. Yet nothing quickens her pulse like Drummond's touch. It's been two years since the duke lost his life in a tragic accident—and even longer since she's been treated like a woman. But when Drummond's real mission is revealed, and the truth behind Suzanne's grief comes to light, every secret conspired to tear them apart is nothing compared to the love that can hold them together.

    I haven’t read much this week, but my favorite read was Julie Kriss’s FILTHY RICH, an interesting take on the CEO-Employee trope. There was a lot of sexy role-play in the story and an intriguing post-#metoo vibe. I personally think Kriss is one of Romancelandia’s most underrated writers and I’m happy that FILTHY RICH appears to be the start of a new series.

    I finished Janet Daily’s Calder series, Rhys Bowen’s new Royal Spyness/Lady Georgie book ‘Love and Death Among the Cheetahs’, and now reading Hannah Howell’s early book Highland Captive (originally published as ElfKing’s Lady – fyi ElfKing is a horse, so it’s not a fantasy book, it’s a Highlander story).

    I’ve heard good things about The Iron Duke; I’ll have to add that to my list. I’ll be back with my list.

    It’s been a slow reading week for me. It’s the first week of school and whoo, is THAT a lot to get used to. I’m slowly working on Good Guy by Kate Meader but some days it’s half a chapter and done.

    Recent reads here ~

    — in trying to get some ideas for my monthly art gathering, I read the enjoyable How to Make Hand-Drawn Maps: A Creative Guide with Tips, Tricks, and Projects by Helen Cann.
    — read/used a very short book which showed a fairly straight forward process which I used to make a couple of cards. How to Draw NeoPopRealism Color Abstract Images: Ink Background by Nadia Russ
    — read two more short books for art group inspiration. The author is from Russia, and the books are in dire need of editing; as proof, the first title is complete as given. Also, in the first book which is clearly written for children, the author spends several pages lambasting two people who she believes did her wrong. (And how often does one get to use the word lambasting?!) How to Draw Without Eraser and How to Draw Advanced NeoPopRealism Ink Images by Nadia Russ
    — read this book in its entirety in one day; I recommend it. When All Is Said: A Novel by Anne Griffin
    — enjoyed The Mage on the Hill (The Web of Arcana Book 1) by Angel Martinez. This is a romance featuring two men and is, I believe, the start of a series; I’d happily read more.
    — Brandon Sanderson’s The Emperor’s Soul was an enjoyable fantasy novella.
