Does anyone here read Candice Hern or Georgette Heyer? biggrin.gif I'm too young for Candice, but it's my mom's favorite . . . although I DO read Georgette Heyer.

I don't usually read romance novels but I recently came across a book called "Child of Awe" by Kathryn Lynn Davis. Have any of you heard of her? How good are her books? (Is she even really a romance novelist?)

The book is about Muriel Calder and her (forced) alliance with the Campbells in the 1500's in Scotland. My grandmother's maiden name was Calder and so I thought this book would be interesting and maybe teach me a little (if somewhat fictional) family history.

Yes, Kathryn Lynn Davis is most assuredly a romance novelist. My mom used to read her everytime we boarded a bus or skytrain, leaving me to stare at the cover jerking up and down in her hands in accordance with the bumps on the road, leaving me a little dizzy and bleary eyed. smile.gif

Well I read a Georgette Heyer book - she is good. Even my library recommended all of her books.

Right now I am reading The Brides of the Bloodstone Trilogy.

The First one is Tempted by your Touch.

I read lately, The Maid of Lorne by Teri Brisbin, Legendary Warrior, Dark Warrior and the Daring Twin all by Donna Fletcher and Conquest Bride by Meriel Fuller.

All pretty good books.

Right now I am also cataloging my books - just in case we move again, so the Army can't say - that I have to proof ownership of books. I take pics with my cam and transfer them to the computer and also make lists of the books titles, ISBN numbers and the price and when I bought those books. If possible I keep the receipts.


Happy Reading!

Wow! Long time no post. ::glances through posts::

Great, Amy! Gaelen Foley's a good read. Jack's story, His Wicked Kiss, is supposed to come in late April.

Mmmmm, I have read Knight in Shining Armor, but I think my favorite Jude Deveraux (sp) book in Counterfeit Lady, which takes place in the States at the time of the French Revolution.

I think Karen Marie Moning has a novella Into the Dreaming coming out on 2/28 and a novel, Dreamfever, on 9/26. I'm also looking forward to the last of Julia Quinn's Bridgerton series, On the Way to the Wedding, which is due out the beginning of July, and The Marriage Spell by Mary Jo Putney (end of May).

I really haven't done that much reading, lately. crybaby.gif I got To the Castle by Joan Wolf for Christmas, it was pretty good, but not her best work. Also, I've re-read some of my old Kathleen Woodiwiss novels. She's one of my favorites.

And..........Karen Marie Moning has a new book coming out the end of September! You can find it on Amazon.com, but it doesn't say what it is about or anything! sad.gif

I just finished Jude Deveraux'sA knight in Shining Armor and it is about an Earl who comes to the present from 1564 because a woman needs him. It was a vg read and I did need a few tissues at the end. I really enjoy her books. I found several at a yard sale last summer and bought them all. I am just now starting to read them. Hopefully, they aren't ones I have already read.
Georgette Heyer is also a favorite. They were written years ago and were hard to find outside of the library until recently when they have begun to be reprinted. You can also find them on E-Bay. She has quite a following.
