I’ve read four books in the last week. FOUR. This might be a record since my pre-baby days. *sighs wistfully* Back in those carefree days of wanderlust and youthful exuberance, I read a book a day on average. Now it’s a luxury I hurridly squeeze in between the baby’s bedtime and my own. I usually give a book a chapter to hook me. Sometimes though, even though a book is enjoyable, I simply drift away and forget I was reading it until months later in a frantic cleaning rage I find the poor, neglected novel under a layer of board books and duplos.
So this week I am THRILLED to announce that I’ve read three and a half very good books. I’m on a roll!
Ms. Medeiros’s books have everything that made me originally fall in love with the romance genre, and this book is her very best yet. Pirates! Harems! A feisty heroine who crosses verbal swords (quite wittily) with a dashing, rakish hero! I didn’t want this book to stop. I laughed out loud. I swooned. I teared up. I clutched my kindle to my heaving bosem and wished with all my might that Medeiros would write faster, damn it. Because I’ve read all her books already, I guess it’s time for a reread. Mmmmmm.
Fans of Karen Marie Moning’s Fever Series will LOVE this one. I was swept away by this action-packed, emotionally driven, urban fantasy debut. Fighting, sexy, rebel fae and a human woman caught up in the cross hairs of two equally sexy, powerful fae men. I can’t wait to read Ms. Williams sophomore book. When will it come out? Details! I need more.
This is the book that started off my delicious reading streak, and it made me realize that I hadn’t picked up a historical for a while. No wonder I had been in the reading doldrums! I love Regency and Victorian romance. Gowns and dukes and honor and witty reparte. Yum, yum.
