Monarch! Thanks for the list of Karen Marie Moning's books. Actually, I have them all already to read! I have read Kiss of the Highlander and the Dark Highlander before I knew about her other books. Now I am starting with the first one and going to read the rest of the series. Having been officially introduced to Adam Black now. I know who he is and what he is about. I am half way through Beyond the Highland Mist...............really good book!

I'm 3/4 through Lord John Grey. I would have been done with it already but I have been working a lot of overtime at my job, pluse I'm helping plan my daughters wedding, and I went to a Scottish Country Dancing social so I've gotten behind in my reading. So far I've enjoyed the book.

gwenlee! sorry you have been so busy to read. Preparing for your daughter's wedding is a lot of work, not to mention all else you have going on. I enjoyed LJGPM, but it wasn't my favorite Diana Gabaldon book. I did enjoy getting to know John Grey better though and the seedy world of London back then. LOL

Lord John Grey is not my favorite so far. I guess I've been spoiled by her other books. However I too have learned alot about ther seedy side of London. There is a new book due to come out soon by Julia London. But I don't have time to go into it--I have to go to work. I'll try to get online tomorrow before I go dancing.

gwenlee, I just bought a Julia London book today! I have two of her books now. One is called "Highlander Unbound" and the other is "Highlander in Disguise." What is the new one?

I finished "Beyond the Highland Mist" last night and will start "To Tame a Highlander" tonight by the same author, Karen Marie Moning. As you can see, I like reading about Scotsmen. rolleyes.gif

I didn't care for John Grey at all. It didn't have the excitment of the Outlander series, and let's face it, a gay English aristocrat nevre makes as good a hero as a strapping young Scotsman (no offence meant). I found it hard to root for him as the hero of the book. I was very indiffernet and couldn't care less about the outcome. I was very happy to have a 3 chapter preview of the next outlander book.

All right, I'll admit it. My wife bought that one and told me I would like it. Personnaly it was a little bit too much of a bodice ripper for me to get into, but she loved it.

I am currently trying to Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke.... and MAN does it take it's sweet time to get going! I think maybe the author thinks a bit too much of herself... but that is just a guess. I'll stick with this book 'til the bitter end (mostly because I went and bought the bloody thing in hard back at a good friends recommendation) but it is a bit of a sleeper.....

Colin, you read the Outlander series? I know a lot of men who have read the series and really liked it. Lord John Grey was not one of my favorite characters in the books, but I did read the LJG book because I wanted to read all of Gabaldon's books and learn a little more about John Grey. I heard there was another one out, Lord John Grey and the Succubus. I don't know if I will read that one or not. Looking very forward to the new Outlander book too!

your wife likes Karen Marie Moning books, eh? Yeah, they are all bodice rippers, but I am enjoying the entertainment after having read all the intensity of Gabaldon's books. I thought it was interesting reading about a Berserker. Never had heard of the legend of them before.

Yeah, I have read the whole series. My wife was reading the first book while on holiday in Scotland a few years back, and I picked it up on the flight home. A good series of books, and historically interesting.

Hey CelticRose
The new book by Julia London is the new book you bought. I read the release date was 1/25/05 but so far I haven't been able to find it. I'm going to Barnes and Nobles tomorrow hopefully they will have it in. I've read all of the Highlander series by Karen Moning, The Dark Highlander was the first book I read, then the Immortal Highlander, then I read the rest of them in order. My favorite was the Immortal Highlander, I like Adam Black and his story. Have you read the series by Janet Chapman? They were pretty good.

I have to say I struggled through the rest of Lord John Grey. I found parts of it good, but without Jamie and Clare it wasn't the same. I have to say that Jamie makes a better hero than Lord John Grey. John Grey reminds me of a nurse I use to work with very nice looking, good listener and a girls best friend, and he was a protector, but you know there is no way that John Grey can compare with Jamie and even though I'm sure John Grey was better looking than Jamie, well lets just say an English man in pants pales when compared to a Scots man in a kilt or pants.

Gwen! I got the new Julia London book at Wal-mart of all places. It was in paperback, so I assumed it was not new. Have you read her work before? I have three of Janet Chapman's books but have yet to read them. I have a library full of books that I have not read, all Scottish and Irish romance books! rolleyes.gif I also like Julie Garwood.

Colin, I am part of the Ladies of Lallybroch site where we talk about the Outlander series. There are several men who are on the site too! I could get the link for you, if you or your wife is interested. I loved reading all the history in the Outlander series, Scottish and American history. Although I admit that I was sad when they left Scotland. Another series you might be interested in is the Into the Wilderness series by Sara Donati. I hear she writes like Gabaldon and the history and story is really good too.

Currently reading the " Da Vinci Code " for the second time.
This work along with the other 2 I suggested sometime ago ( " The Celestine Prophesies" and " The Tenth Insite" ) are must reads for those who call themselves literarily knowledgeable.

Loved it! Despite all the religious content that seems to be pissing people off, it was a great murder mystery. Apparently Angels and Demons is better though.
