Casee: I finished Archangel’s Viper and really enjoyed it. I never really wondered what happened to Holly, which is odd to me. I have no idea how I forgot her. Watch for my review.
Last night I started Storm Gathering by Rebecca Zanetti. It is the fourth book in her Scorpius Syndrome series. I adore dystopian romance. This is one of my favorite dystopian series and I hope she can keep it going. I’m still reading rather slowly, but I’m fine reading at a slow steady pace rather than not reading at all.
Holly: I didn’t have a lot of reading time this week. I did a re-read of One Fell Sweep (Ilona Andrews is currently writing Maud’s novella..it’s going up weekly as a serial on the blog. Y’all. Maud!), mostly because Rowena was reading it and I wanted to catch up. Then I read Rough Ride by Kristen Ashley, a Chaos novella featuring Rosalie (she was Shy’s girl for a minute in Own the Wind) and Snapper. I really liked Snapper, but the novella was just eh IMO.
I’m still reading The Darkling Bride. It isn’t the book, I just haven’t had time. I’m also reading Lake Silence by Anne Bishop (I’m still sad we left Lakeside, but I’m loving it!) and listening to Saving Grace by Julie Garwood.
Rowena: It was a slow reading week for me. I had a lot going on at work and then at home that reading took a back seat. I read Living Out Loud by Staci Hart and that book was…I’m not sure. It took me a lot longer to read what should have been a quick read because the heroine, the very young heroine got on my nerves. After that, I quickly jumped into One Fell Sweep by Ilona Andrews and freaking loved the hell out of that book so now I’m back on my review pile and will be starting On Hart’s Boardwalk by Samantha Young and What a Difference a Duke Makes by Lenora Bell.

While you were sleeping...
With her brother Thomas injured on the battlefront in the Colonies, orphaned Cecilia Harcourt has two unbearable choices: move in with a maiden aunt or marry a scheming cousin. Instead, she chooses option three and travels across the Atlantic, determined to nurse her brother back to health. But after a week of searching, she finds not her brother but his best friend, the handsome officer Edward Rokesby. He's unconscious and in desperate need of her care, and Cecilia vows that she will save this soldier's life, even if staying by his side means telling one little lie...
I told everyone I was your wife
When Edward comes to, he's more than a little confused. The blow to his head knocked out six months of his memory, but surely he would recall getting married. He knows who Cecilia Harcourt is—even if he does not recall her face—and with everyone calling her his wife, he decides it must be true, even though he'd always assumed he'd marry his neighbor back in England.
If only it were true...
Cecilia risks her entire future by giving herself—completely—to the man she loves. But when the truth comes out, Edward may have a few surprises of his own for the new Mrs. Rokesby.
I’m reading a Victorian series by Shannon Drake (aka Heather Graham)
Holly, I’m envious that you’re reading Lake Silence; I’m eager to read it.
Recent reads here ~
— The Aura (The Kate Benedict Series Book 1) by Carrie Bedford. This paranormal mystery is set primarily in London with occasional scenes in Italy. It was an enjoyable read but did require some willing suspension of disbelief — not for the auras that the main character sees (given the title, I was happy to accept that) but rather for the amount of sharing an inspector was willing to do with a civilian.
— re-read with pleasure Patricia Briggs’ Shifting Shadows: Stories from the World of Mercy Thompson.
— I very much enjoyed Happiness for Humans by P.Z. Reizin; I stayed up late last night to finish it. The book was quite British, had a lot of dry humor, and will have you keeping a leery eye on electronics in your possession. It’s a book I’ll likely re-read at some point. I won the book here, so thank you!
— I enjoyed the contemporary romance Small Change by Roan Parrish.
— I also liked the short novel Snowspelled: Volume I of The Harwood Spellbook by Stephanie Burgis which is set in an alternate world with magic in a time akin to the regency era but in which women are the politicians and men (traditionally at least) the magic wielders.
— I enjoyed the male/male paranormal romance Off the Beaten Path by Cari Z.
–a pleasant male/male romance which happens to be currently free to Kindle readers: My Partner the Wolf (shifters and partners Book 1) by Hollis Shiloh. While I enjoyed this, I felt it could have been somewhat shorter.
— I also read an enjoyable short non-fiction book with some attractive art: Other-Wordly: words both strange and lovely from around the world by Yee-Lum Mak and Kelsey Garrity-Riley
I’m currently reading Tracy Anne Warren’s Happily Bedded Bliss. I don enjoy her historical romances.
