What Are You Reading? (+ Historical Giveaway)

Posted April 6, 2018 by Casee in Features, Giveaways | 14 Comments


Casee: I am just finishing up Dark Legacy by Christine Feehan. It isn’t my favorite in this series and I can’t quite pinpoint why. I’m not sure what to read next. I have quite a few choices. I’m not sure if I want to stick with paranormal or go back to contemporary. Or if I should be really wild and read a historical. Hello Stranger by Lisa Kleypas is quietly calling to me. I am told that I need to read the entire series, which I’m not sure I want to commit to.

Holly: This week I tried to focus on reading new books rather than re-reading. I finished Crimes Against Magic by Steve McHugh, which was good. I have the second book and plan to start it shortly. I started listening to A Merciful Truth by Kendra Elliot, but I wasn’t in the right frame of mind and traded it for Wildfire by Ilona Andrews instead. Then I read Snowfall and Secrets by Kimberly Loth. The story was just okay. Something about the writing didn’t really work for me. And the hero said asshat stuff the heroine didn’t call him out for. I might try the next book in the series, but I’m not sure yet. I started Shadow Wings by Raye Wagner and Kelly St. Clare, but I set it aside after a few chapters when I realized it was book 2 in the series and I was pretty lost. The premise was good so I may go back to book 1 next.

Right now I’m reading Dragon’s Oath by Sophie Steg. I’m about 7 chapters in and enjoying it.

Rowena: I haven’t read a hot damn thing all week. I can’t concentrate on the book that I’m reading, which is If You Don’t Have Anything Nice to Say by Leila Sales and I have been trying to read this book for the last week. I don’t know if I should give it up and try something else or what but I need to do something. Maybe I’ll jump out of this book and start The Hookup by Erin McCarthy. Yeah, that’s what I’m going to do. Wish me luck.

A woman who defies her time

Dr. Garrett Gibson, the only female physician in England, is as daring and independent as any man—why not take her pleasures like one? Yet she has never been tempted to embark on an affair, until now. Ethan Ransom, a former detective for Scotland Yard, is as gallant as he is secretive, a rumored assassin whose true loyalties are a mystery. For one exhilarating night, they give in to their potent attraction before becoming strangers again.

A man who breaks every rule

As a Ravenel by-blow spurned by his father, Ethan has little interest in polite society, yet he is captivated by the bold and beautiful Garrett. Despite their vow to resist each other after that sublime night, she is soon drawn into his most dangerous assignment yet. When the mission goes wrong, it will take all of Garrett's skill and courage to save him. As they face the menace of a treacherous government plot, Ethan is willing to take any risk for the love of the most extraordinary woman he's ever known.

    I finished reading The High Tide Club by Mary Kay Andrews which was great and will be reading Digging In by Loretta Nyhan next.

  2. Natalija

    I’m reading The Highlander (Victorian Rebels, #3) by Kerrigan Byrne. So far it’s very good.

    Some recent reads here ~

    — I continued on with T. Hammond’s Team Red series which I began last week and have now read Color Blind (Team Red, #2), Blind Faith (Team Red, #3), Blind Rage (Team Red, #4), Blind-sided (Team Red, #5), and Blind Luck (Team Red, #6).

    This is a series that should definitely be read in order. The first volume is currently free to Kindle readers. Blind Seduction: Team Red, Book 1 by T. Hammond at https://www.amazon.com/Blind-Seduction-Team-Red-Book-ebook/dp/B00C8UB0JK/ref=la_B00BS93JK0_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1523067552&sr=1-1&refinements=p_82%3AB00BS93JK0
    — How to Stop Time by Matt Haig – This an enjoyable novel about a man who ages incredibly slowly. When the story begins he looks about forty but is over five hundred years old. The story raises some interesting questions about life and more.
    — A Country Christmas by Josi Kilpack, Carla Kelly, and Jennifer Moore. I was interested in reading this collection of historical romance novellas because it contained a work by a favorite author, Carla Kelly. I very much enjoyed Kelly’s The Christmas Angle (no, that is not a spelling error) and look forward to her forthcoming book which will continue the story of these two characters. The other two stories left me untouched.
    — the contemporary romance suspense work Whispers to the Heart by Kimberly Reeves which is currently free to Kindle readers. I finished this but the description was more appealing than the story.

    Interestingly, I’m in the ‘last’ book in my backwards reading of the Ravenel series. i read my e-copy of Hello Stranger and decided to reread all the books one at a time… I’m weird that way.
