Just who does Rebel Runs Fast think he is? Dr. Madeline Mitchell, the new doctor on the White Sandy Lakota Indian Reservation, knows there’s a good answer to that question. Somewhere.

 

Sure, the Lakota medicine man is every cowboy-and-Indian fantasy she ever had, but he sends patients to sweat lodges instead of clinical trials, talks them out of flu vaccines. Even more irritating, he makes her heart race.

“For You” by Kristen Ashley (ebook)
After my Kristen Ashley binge last week, I continued with this one, the first in the Burg series. This one features Colt and February, high school sweethearts who have been separated for a long, long time. I enjoyed the hero and the heroine, but this book drove me crazy. The two were separated for twenty something years over ONE BIG MISUNDERSTANDING. Okay, the understanding was fairly complicated, but I couldn’t believe that it made February disappear. Plus, I wanted this one to be over about at 54%. I struggled to finish. Interestingly though, I felt much better about the story after I was finally finished. This is the power that is Kristen Ashley.

Review: Release Me

Release Me Cover“Release Me” by J. Kenner (erotic, Bantam, January 2013, $15.00, 352pp)

 

Series: Book 1 of trilogy

 

Summary:
He was the one man I couldn’t avoid. And the one man I couldn’t resist.
 
Damien Stark could have his way with any woman. He was sexy, confident, and commanding: Anything he wanted, he got. And what he wanted was me.
 
Our attraction was unmistakable, almost beyond control, but as much as I ached to be his, I feared the pressures of his demands. Submitting to Damien meant I had to bare the darkest truth about my past—and risk breaking us apart.

Historical romance is my go-to genre. Most of my comfort reads fall into this category. I read many historical romances in 2012 and had a very difficult time picking only 13 for this list. However, these are the stories that touched me – and in some way are still with me.

 

See my list of favorite erotic romances, my favorite books that don’t fit into any other category, my favorite contemporary romances and my favorite paranormal romances of 2012.

I have no doubt that I read far more erotic romances than any other type of romance (except maybe historical). And while I read a whole host of crappy erotic romances, there were several that stood out for the rest. Fortunately, not all of my top choices feature dominant billionaires!
