First Monday of 2012 and i have a plan…

It’s lovely to start the New Year with a blank slate…

Well sort of blank slate, I have been off the grid for a good couple of month and in the spirit of true book bloggers I have a pile of books I have conveniently forgotten about and now it’s the time to pay the piper;  so it going to be catch up for me for the next couple of months…

All I have been reading recently are shorts and they have been hitting the spot and have also introduced me to some new to authors…  so win win all round in the big scheme of things

I picked up these two to keep me going this week. The first is just because I am a fan of Ms Walker’s romance suspense and also the second book in her Ash Trilogy series is just about due out now.. So a good time to get started on this series.

And the second book is on a recommendation from Judith at Dr J Place – her review style is one I really enjoy reading and she tell it like it is…  I am sure i am going to enjoy this one.

If you Hear Here – Shiloh Walker

A CRY IN THE WOODS

The scream Lena Riddle hears in the woods behind her house is enough to curdle her blood—she has no doubt that a woman is in real danger. Unfortunately, with no physical evidence, the local law officers in small-town Ash, Kentucky, dismiss her claim. But Lena knows what she heard—and it leaves her filled with fear and frustration.

Ezra King is on leave from the state police, but he can’t escape the guilty memories that haunt his dreams. When he sees Lena, he is immediately drawn to her. He aches to touch her—to be touched by her—but is he too burdened by his tragic past to get close?

When Ezra hears her story of an unknown woman’s screams, his instincts tell him that Lena’s life is also at risk—and his desire to protect her is as fierce as his need to possess her

Calvin's Cowboy by Drew Hunt

Calvin Hamilton reluctantly returns to his home town of Parrish Creek, Texas, to sell his parents' house. Finding the place in need of repair he hires John "Brock" Brockwell to renovate the house before putting it on the market. Brock bares a passing resemblance to Gary Cooper, especially as he often wears western clothing. Calvin has always had a weakness for cowboys.

Time has reversed the two men's fortunes. In high school Brock was the big man on campus, his popularity allowing him to hide his true nature. Calvin was a nerd, bullied by most of the jocks for being perceived as gay. Now Calvin is a successful New York advertising executive, and Brock is a divorced father with a teenage son who faces financial ruin, unable to pay his late father's hospital bills.

Can Calvin put past bitterness behind him and help the cowboy with whom he is rapidly falling in love? Will the deeply closeted Brock be able to admit he has feelings for Calvin? Or will pride, fear, distance, and the past prevent them from building a future together?
