Monday Round Up: Slow and Steady I go….

A weekly event hosted by Sheila - Book Journey to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.

Books I completed last week are:

Swap Meet - Lolita Lopez

The Strongest Shape by Tessa Cárdenas

Love, Grant –A K M Miles

Claire Thompson – Heart of Submission

Renegade – Diana Palmer (re-read)

Emergency – Drew Zachary

This is the cover I fell in love with this week…

I think I fell in love with the blurb of this book as soon as I read it and the cover was just icing on the cake. How wonderful is that cover.

Dead Ruby Slippers

Sandra Sookoo

Genre: Romance/Contemporary/Fantasy

Dancing may be hard…but no one expected it to be murder.

When sexy tap dancer Abigail Carlton, aka Ruby Slippers, is found dead and arranged in an artistic fashion on her coffee table it’s up to Special Agent Quentin Banks to solve her murder.

But nothing is ever as it seems. Not only is Quentin a FBI career man, he doubles as an officer for the Institute of Magical Instruction…and the dancer’s death has super natural energy written all over it.

Quentin must find who murdered Abigail and he only has24 hours to do it before it’s taken over by his superiors.

Books I am reading this week

I do have a few books I really want to read and I am going to press through some of them this week..  There is one anthology that I am going to take Tam’s  (Tams Reads) advise and read in short burst and get through it in a couple of week..

 

Dragons Grace – Nicole Dennis

Lunch is Serve – Jude Mason

Shadow and Light – Anthology – Pine Hill Press

Barely Legal - Lizzie Leaf  

Raising The Lost – Rebecca J. Vickery

@GT..

I know you'll get there eventually - there are enough romance readers around you...

And poetry is it's own brand of romance...

@SHB.

I didn't review The Strongest Shape by Tessa Cárdenas - I liked it, but I didn't love it like you did...

We will speak off post..

Erotic Horizon on 26 April 2010 at 23:46 said...

@Janna..

Claire Thompson - was really good, some issues, but what worked, worked really well..

Tessa Cárdenas - not reviewed yet - I have to confer with KC on some matters first.. She loves this book.

Looks like you had a good week and another good one planned! The Dead Ruby Slippers is a catching cover.
I especially like the looks of Dragon's Grace and Shadows & Light. I like anthologies because you get to have bite size stories!
Enjoy your reading!

Erotic Horizon on 27 April 2010 at 13:31 said...

@Martha..

I am looking forward to that Anthology... I am hoping to discover some new to me voices..

Enjoy the Black Hills, I look forward to your thoughts.
