by Jayne Castle. Second in the St Helens series. The story of Nick Chastain and Zinnia Spring, entertaining and distracting...


By Jayne Castle. First in the St. Helens trilogy. A paranormal romance , the story of Lucas Trent and Amaryllis Lark, entertaining, just what I have been in the mood for lately....

By Elizabeth Lowell, the last in the Men of the Rocking R series. The story of Nevada Blackthorn, and Erin Summers. I waited a long time for Nevada's story. It was enjoyable... But like most of the harlequin series, the whole series is fast reads (in case you couldn't tell by how fast the reviews were done!! LOL)

Granite Man

By Elizabeth Lowell... Third in the Men of the Rocking M series. The story of Cash McQueen and Mariah Mackenzie, it is entertaining and enjoyable. Not terribly engrossing, but perfect for a lazy afternoon's reading.


By Elizabeth Lowell, Second in the Men of the Rocking M series. Good story, I keep reading these, because, they are entertaining, but not totally engrossing, and I can pay attention to the TV, or to my knitting at the same time as reading. Which is perfect for my purposes today.

Fire and Rain

By Elizabeth Lowell. This is the first in the Men of the Rocking M series, that she wrote in the early 90's. Basically a trashy romance, in the harlequin style (in fact, they were harlequins). Modern westerns, I have read them a couple times... I enjoy them every time..

Midnight in Ruby Bayou

The most recent in the Donovan series by Elizabeth Lowell, I refuse to believe it is the last of the series, as there are two siblings left!! I always enjoy this book!!

Point Blank

By Catherine Coulter.. I finally got my hands on it... I have been waiting for it for 6 months, since it was first published! I loved it, couldn't put it down... #10 in this series was as good as the beginning, and much better than #9. Don't get me wrong, Blowout was good.... Just not as gripping or engrossing as most of the rest of the series, or even most of Coulter's other works. I love the continuing story of Sherlock and Savich and all the people they deal with. Sometimes I can figure out the ending before it happens, but not often in this set. This is defiantly a series to reread often and get more and more out of!! I can barely wait till the next book in the series comes out... And it isn't even announced yet WHHHHAAA!!!!

Pearl Cove

Third in Elizabeth Lowell's Donovan series, very engrossing. The first one I read, I loved it so much that I hunted out the previous two and read them!! Very Entertaining!!

Jade Island

#2 in Elizabeth Lowell's Donovan Series... I always really enjoy it, and can't wait to move on to the next one!!

Amber Beach

I love this series by Elizabeth Lowell, it is the series that got me stuck on her. I reread them about once a year or so. The mystery mixed in with, and complicating the romance tells a good story... And the family connection makes it more interesting.. I am still waiting for the books on the last two brothers though... Wonder when she will do those???

Lord of Raven's Peak

Another entertaining novel, if not entirely engrossing, still, pretty good... Did finally link the first book with 2, 3, and 4, but it is a tenuous link, just mentioning a pair of characters from the first book. Not a bad romance series, I recommend it, but not one for someone who needs something more involving and in-depth.

Lord of Falcon Ridge

I managed to start reading the wrong book for the next in the series, and by the time I realized it I was already 1/4 done.... But that is ok... I do now see the connection in books 2, 3, and 4... Still don't see the connection with book 1, but maybe that will come with the reading of book 2... Which I will start shortly... Lord of Falcon Ridge was entertaining, but nothing outstanding.. It just didn't keep you from putting it down, like some of Catherine Coulter's other work (namely her FBI series...)

Lord of Hawkfell Island

Not bad, but not outstanding either... We shall see if the next two tie these together in any manner... So far they are just Viking novels.

Season of the Sun

First in Catherine Coulter's Viking series... Basically a Viking romance... Entertaining, but nothing deep. Still, it kept my interest long enough for me to finish it and start the second in the series...

Wolf Moon

A Nora Roberts short story from the book Blue Moon. Really totally different from her usual stuff, but still engrossing and entertaining. I really enjoyed it.. Will have to see if I can find anything similar... It was really kind more of a sci-fi/fantasy/romance, but luckily for me, I am into just about anything!! LOL .

Yet another one...

I got a few pages into Midnight Bayou, and realized I had read it before, and just wasn't' in the mood for a reread, so I moved on to Blue Smoke, I LOVED it. It was SO engrossing, I just couldn't put it down even at midnight last night!!! I did have this one all figured out, but that was ok.. It was still an entertaining story.

Carolina Moon

oooh... I just finished this one... It was really good... I thought I had it all figured out, and I am pretty good at this from all my reading!! But I was TOTALLY wrong!!! I really enjoyed it... Gonna catch up on my Nora Roberts novels... She comes out with them almost as fast as I can read them!!! I think Midnight Bayou is next... We shall see how good it is!! I have yet to find anything of hers that didn't at least entertain me, even if it wasn't just totally engrossing, it was pretty good...

Several new ones...

I finally got Nora Robert's Red Lily, and was able to finish off the Garden Trilogy, it was really good, and highly enjoyable. I also finished Kathleen Eagle's Night Falls Like Silk, it was a sequel to another of hers that I had really enjoyed. I also got Jude Deveraux's First Impressions and Carolina Isle, unfortunately, that is the order I read them in, not realizing that Carolina Isle takes place before First Impressions, not that it really makes a difference.. Only a couple of characters in common, and it really gives nothing away. I did really enjoy both of them, took me only a few hours to finish each. Now I just have to wait for more of my Wish List to become available!!
In the mean time I have read Johanna Lindsey's Ly-San-Ter series... It is one of my old favorites. Maybe I will pick up the Narnia series next... And hope it can grab my interest.
