201204 AboutThatNightHere is my list of favorite contemporary romances for 2012. I would like to mention that I have two Kristen Ashley titles on this list, mostly because these two made an huge impression on me. I was a bit torn because these titles run way too long and could use some editing. Despite this, I loved the two on my list.


See my list favorite paranormal romances of 2012.


While going thru the list of books that I read in 2012, I realized that I didn’t read much in the paranormal realm. I’m not really sure why this happened, but almost every paranormal book that I did read is on the favorite list. These are not in any particular order.


Additonal lists to come . . .

From the moment that I read my first Lora Leigh book, I was hooked. She writes some incredibly dominant heroes who I often want to knock some sense into. However, I can’t resist them. I don’t even mind that some of her books may have timeline/continuity issues or grammatical errors. Her stories speak to me, and I relish the opportunity to read each new book. And to be honest, I relish the opportunity to re-read them as well.

Book Picks for the Week of December 31, 2012

Lacey Alexander’s “Give In To Me” (NAL) Buy from Amazon
See review


Sarah M. Anderson’s “Mystic Cowboy” (Samhain) Buy from Amazon
Anderson has a knack for writing compelling stories about Native Americans in contemporary society. The hero of this story is wonderful, a great mix of alpha and beta. Plus, there is a skinny dipping scene.


Jennifer Ashley’s “The Seduction of Elliot McBride” (Berkley) Buy from Amazon
I was intrigued about how this story would fit in with the others in the Mackenzie family series. I adored this story which features a hero who has loved the heroine from afar for a long, long time.


“Enslaved” by Shoshanna Evers (ebook, review copy, edelweiss)
Review to come


“Silken Canvas” by Natasha Moore (ebook)
I seem to gravitate towards book that feature erotic/kinky photography. I can’t resist them. Brendan and Ashley are ex-lovers (another trope I can’t resist), but are reunited at a gallery opening featuring Brendan’s art. With some deft maneuvering, Brendan gets Ashley to model for him at the show – much to the consternation of Ashley’s current boyfriend. After breaking up with her boyfriend, Ashley agrees to pose for Brendan for an entire weekend. The two reconnect – and reconnect passionately. This one is steamy – and the author uses pearls in a very different and kinky way.
