It’s Mother’s Day, What Are You Reading?

Posted May 9, 2010 by Holly in Features | 10 Comments

First things first: HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! I hope all you moms out there have a relaxing, love-filled day. With maybe a romance novel or two thrown in, just because.

Holly: I haven’t been reading much the last week or so. My husband took the week off work to have a stay-at-home vacation and we’ve been busy with Spring Cleaning. While I’m thrilled to have some big projects taken care of, I’m ready to get back into a normal routine, i.e., find time to read!

I did start The Last Lone Wolf by Maureen Child yesterday. I’m only a few chapters in so I’m going to reserve judgment, but I have to say the heroine’s reasons for seeking out the hero bother me. Or maybe not her reason (she wants a baby), but the fact that she feels like he owes her one because the military – and he, in a round-about way – took her only family from her. So now they owe her one. The logic seems flawed and is frankly pissing me off. But I’m willing to keep reading to see if it improves.

Rowena: I’m knee deep in the middle of a mad YA reading frenzy.  It’s all I want to read these days.  I just finished reading Rachel Vincent’s My Soul to Take and immediately started reading The Iron King by Julie Kagawa.  I enjoyed the Vincent and am about a third of the way into the Kagawa and it’s reminding me a lot of Alice in Wonderland but not in a bad way (I wasn’t a fan of Alice and Wonderland, never have been), just in a different kind of way.  Different in the way that this book is different than anything I’ve ever read and I’m kinda liking it.  We’ll see how the rest of the book goes but for right now, not so bad.

After this book, I think I’m going to pick up either the latest Kim Lenox or the latest Erin Quinn.  I’ve been looking forward to both books for a while now so wish me luck!

Also, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all of you lovely mothers out there!

Casee: I’m reading Dangerous Desires by Dee Davis. I’ve always enjoyed Dee Davis’ books. The month of May has treated me kindly when it comes to reading. I look forward to reviewing some of the books.

So…what are you reading this Mother’s Day?

MONTANA DESTINY By R.C. RyanThey’re the McCords…three rugged, sexy cowboy cousins who’ll inherit the family range–if they seek the treasure hidden on it. But even more precious are the women who can tame their wild hearts…

Emergency medic Marilee Trainor likes her freedom and lives for trouble. But when she stumbles upon a clue to the legendary McCord gold, she ‘s suddenly in a mysterious killer’s sights–and the arms of irresistible playboy Wyatt McCord. This McCord cousin has been everywhere, yet the ranch is the only place he feels at home. Now Marilee’s courage and independence make him want to protect her, win her heart, and finally settle down. But trust is the one thing Wyatt and Marilee can’t easily give. And their survival and everything they cherish depends on whether they can surrender to each other–to fight for their…

RAVISHED BY A HIGHLANDER By Paula Quinn – FORBIDDEN LOVE

Davina Montgomery is no ordinary English lady. For her own protection, she’s been locked away from society, her true identity the Crown’s most closely guarded secret. Until a shocking betrayal—and a bold rescue—land her in the arms of a fierce Highlander, a powerful warrior whose searing gaze and tantalizing touch awaken her body and soul.

UNDENIABLE DESIRE

As the firstborn son of a powerful Scottish laird, Robert MacGregor has no loyalty to the English throne, but he’s not the kind of man to leave a woman in distress, even if she is English. He vows to deliver Davina to safety, unharmed and untouched. Yet one stolen kiss leaves them both smoldering with desire… and desperate for more. With Davina’s secret threatening to destroy his clan, Rob must choose between everything he holds dear and the one woman he can’t live without.

STILL THE ONE By Robin Wells – After Katie Charmaine’s husband is killed in Iraq, all she has left is a closet full of his clothes, a few pictures, and fond memories. She not only lost her love, but her last chance to have the children she’s always wanted. Until Zack Ferguson shows up in town . . . with the daughter Katie gave up for adoption nearly seventeen years ago.

Zack Ferguson has never forgotten Katie, or the one magical night they spent together. Seeing her again brings up a tidal wave of emotions: regret over the way he left her, anger at the secret she kept, and desire he hasn’t felt in years. But he’s in town for Gracie. Their daughter is sixteen, angry at the world, and-worst of all-pregnant. She needs the love of her two parents now more than ever. Can these three forgive the hurts of the past and open their hearts to each other?

DESIRE ME by Robyn DeHart – Years ago, Maxwell Barrett found a map to Atlantis and dedicated his life to the search for the mystical lost continent. But when an alluring woman makes a wager for the priceless artifact, he may have discovered an even greater treasure.

A descendant of Atlantis, Sabine Tobias needs the map to decipher an ancient prophecy. What she doesn’t need are the sparks flying between her and Max. He’s too devilishly charming to be trusted: The fate of her people is at stake as well as her heart. Yet a ruthless killer also covets the map. Now Max and Sabine must race to decode the prophecy’s riddle before this criminal fulfills his deadly mission.

KNIGHT OF PASSION By Margaret MalloryHOW CAN THIS PASSIONATE KNIGHT…
Renowned beauty Lady Linnet is torn between two desires: revenge on those who destroyed her family or marriage to her childhood sweetheart Sir James Rayburn. One fateful night, she makes a misguided choice: she sacrifices Jamie’s love for a chance at vengeance.

TRUST A BEAUTY WITH A PAST?

Jamie Rayburn returns to England in search of a virtuous wife-only to find the lovely Linnet as bewitching as ever. Their reckless affair ignites anew, even hotter than before, although Jamie vows to never again trust her with his heart. Then just as Linnet begins to make amends, she’s tempted by one last opportunity to settle old scores. But a final retribution could cost her Jamie’s love – this time forever.

TO SURRENDER TO A ROGUE by Cara Elliott – An expert in antiquities, Lady Alessandra della Giamatti arrives in Bath to excavate newly discovered Roman ruins-only to find herself caught in a web of evil intrigue by a blackmailer threatening to expose her scandalous past. The one man who can help her is Lord James “Black Jack” Pierson, a fellow member of the expedition and a sinfully handsome rogue whose tempting presence ignites a different sort of danger.

Jack has clashed with Alessandra in the past, so when she suddenly surrenders her body he can’t help being suspicious. Is she a scheming temptress? Or is she truly a lady in trouble? As desire and deceptions swirl around them, Alessandra and Jack must find a way to win each other’s trust. For if they don’t work together to uncover a shocking truth, their enemy-and their own simmering passions-may destroy them and everything they cherish.
