Prince Joe, Forever Blue and Educating Harvard by Suzanne Brockmann are worth reading and are guaranteed to hook you on Suzanne's writing if you've never read her before.
Now I'm on the search for more.
Speed Dating by Nancy Warren is one of those NASCAR inspired romance books by Harlequin. Have to say, it was cute and worth reading in a relaxing bubble bath. Someone just needs to find a way to keep the water warm for more than 20 minutes!
I just got my notification from the Romantic Times E-zine I subscribed to last month.
Happy News/Disappointed News.
The American Title III contest winner isn't Kim Howe, the author that I had highlighted in my blog back in January.
The lucky lady who won is Jenny Gardiner, whose SLEEPING WITH WARD CLEVER had that unusual romantic finale; the one that had wry humor and wit coloring the scene. It wasn't my personal style or expectation, but clearly many were intrigued by the unexpected twist and I acknowledge its cleverness.
She popped in on my comments way back (February) and explained why she chose what she did. She hinted that the other romance scenes that she had to choose from were critical to the story and would have given too much away.
Here's me saying, Congratulations to Jenny Gardiner! Looks like we're going to be able to read all about it when Sleeping With Ward Clever gets published.
AND for Kim Howe, the author who graciously allowed me to highlight her on this blog: Congratulations for making it all the way to the very last contest! I hope to read
One Shot, Two Kills at some point because after reading all your excerpts, you have me hooked! For me, your characters, plot and potential crisis vehicles are reminiscent of Susanne Brockmann's Navy SEALs and that constitutes a must read. All the best to you !!
Thanks to my smallest, I've learned that the Madagascar Tomato Frog is on the endangered Species list due to deforestation and the illegal pet trade.
You've heard about the rain forests being destroyed that way in South America and Africa, but on the island of Madagascar? They have flora and fauna that appear no where else in the world. Why isn't more being done?
Frogs are considered the world's litmus test of a stable ecology and environmnent. Shouldn't we be protecting them with stronger measures?
BTW - I read that they should be referred to with a different adjective than Madagascar - like,
Malagasy Tomato Frog, NOT Madagascan. Guess they're sensitive about that.
It is sunny today but breezy! We have sustained winds of 24 MPH but the wind so far has gusted up to 34 MPH. That would dry my hair in a hurry! LOL
Has anyone heard that Jaid Black has a new Trek offering? NOT Star Trek folks, LOL!
No, her erotic romance series based in another galaxy. I'm STILL waiting for Death's HEA!
She's been keeping us fans dangling for a few years.
I am hoping for a great climax soon.
