What we are reading....Roseanne

I’ve just finished Kelly Hunter’s latest offering, Untameable Rogue. I loved it. Loved it, loved, loved it. Kelly’s characters live and breathe on each page. There is not one wasted word. Her heroine, Madeline Mercy Delacourte, is flawed, gorgeous and direct. Her hero, Luke Bennet, in a word, wow. This book was deeply moving, utterly sensual. The secondary character, Jacob Bennett, well he deserves a book of his own. Her minor characters, Yun, the housekeeper, and Po, were endearing. As I read I was transported to Singapore, could hear it, smell it. Another fantastic read by a brilliant Australian author.

I love category romance. I always have. Friends often suggest and recommend books by authors they think I’d enjoy. One of these books was, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larsson. I plowed my way through thinking, okay, when’s this going to get into the story. But, seeing as it was recommended by so many, I continued to invest my precious reading time into it.  Two thirds of the way in it grabbed my interest. In the end I enjoyed it, but I still don’t know if I’m ready to start The Girl who Played with Fire. I think it can stay on my TBR pile.

Anything Anne Stuart I also enjoy. Her latest book was Silver Falls. Thriller. Gutsy, feisty heroine. Unusual Hero, the black sheep of the family who wasn’t. The killer was creepy, so creepy, made my skin crawl. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

The book I’m reading ATM is a category romance by our fantastic Nikki Logan. It’s her latest release titled. Their Newborn Gift. The story of Lea, Reilly and Molly. From the first sentence I was sucked right on in. Unusual story, which is awesome, set in the Kimberley region of WA. Strong heroine, yet vulnerable. Same can be said for Reilly. I haven’t finished this story yet; I want to take everything in, the atmosphere of setting. The growing romance; Molly’s dilemma. Study can wait, tonight; I have a book to finish.

Roseanne, what a great and varied list.

I have started The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and was about 50 pages into it when I had to return to the library. I keep thinking interesting but there is a lot of telling in the book. Still I will endeavour to read more once I get it back.

And I've got Nikki's on the TBR pile. Currently reading Melissa's One Small Miracle to get into the series.
