    I was doing some very intense google/bn searches for a romance novel when i came across this site. Maybe you guys can help me out:

    I cannot remember the name of this book but it was two novelles. The first one was about a girl coming back to her hometown after a long absence because her parents have seperated and everyone in her family is freaking out. Her dad is living in an RV on the property of the town jezebel…..who also happens to be the mother of her long time love interest. I cant remember why she hated/loved this guy but they had a history. There was a particular scene where they were in his kitchen and he was leaning back in his chair on two legs. She tells him shes still a virgin and he hits the floor. And at the end shes about to leave and for some reason she decides to clean his house before she goes. And i think her and her sister both fake engagements to show their parents how dumb they’re acting…..but i mighta made that up lol.

    The second story is about a bride-to-be who gets kidnapped along with a stranger. They escape the bad guys and are trying to evade them when they run across a biker wedding with an elvis cake. They tell the people theyre married and they make them show their love with a smooch. When they are safely home they begin an affair and thats all i can remember from that one (and some of that might be from other novels that got jumbled up in my head).

    If you guys could help me out id REEEEEEEAAAALLLLLY appreciate it. Thanks!

    I find Victoria Dahl pretty hit/miss by wow, I really loved Bad Boys Do .  The lead characters were great, the “big misunderstandings” made complete sense, given the leads’ personal issues that they needed to work out, and the love scenes were pretty hot.

    I’ve been on vacation this last week, so I’ve read a lot… the stand out books include Second Chance at the Sugar Shack , by Candis Terry, A Fountain Full of Blood , by Julia Spencer-Fleming, and Tis the Season to Be Sinful by Adrienne Basso.

    Trying to decide between Caroline Linden’s One Night in London , and Erin Morganstern’s The Night Circus as to which to read next,

    I’m reading Unclaimed by Courtney Milan (love her books!)

  5. 5

    I’m reading and enjoying The Night Circus by Erin Morganstern.  It’s a debut novel of magic and romance that seems to be living up to its hype.

    I was just told I needed to read The Night Circus. Glad to see another positive review.

    This weekend, it’s Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, with The Scarlet Letter on deck. Ah, the exotic life of an English professor…

    I’m glad to see Laura Lee Guhrke’s OOP backlist finally available as ebooks. I’ve been haunting the UBS’s for them forever, it seems. Already finished Conor’s Way, and working on The Seduction.

    Tell me about The Night Circus. This is the first I’ve heard of it.

    Courtney Milan’s UNCLAIMED is magnificent! That is all.

    After last weekend’s Fictionwise sale I’ve been reading traditional regencies. So adorable, charming, cute and full of win! I’d forgotten how much I love them, as it’s been a while since I read any other than the recently reissued Jo Beverleys. I got my romance reading start with traditional regencies, and I hadn’t realized how much I’d missed them amongst the HOT HOT HOT SEXXORING of today’s romance. (Not that I don’t enjoy TEH HAWT, but not all the time, everywhere. Yanno?)

    I’m also liking CJ Barry’s Unforgettable series. (Science fiction romance reissued by Carina Press.)

    I’m reading Mercedes Lackey’s “The Sleeping Beauty” and laughing my butt off!

    Ann G says:

    I am reading OUT OF THE DEEP I CRY by Julia Spencer-Fleming.  It’s the third book in a mystery series, and I really like the hero and heroine, and the side characters.

  11. 11
    Ann G says:

    Karen F—I read A FOUNTAIN FULL OF BLOOD just before my current book (OUT OF THE DEEP I CRY by Julia Spencer-Fleming).  Have you read IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER by Julia?  That’s the first book in the series.  I’m enjoying them all so far.

  12. 12
    Ann G says:

    snarkhunter—The SCARLET LETTER is a wonderful book.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Nessa says:

    I LOVED The Night Circus. There was magic, love and intrigue, and when I turned the last page, I felt like I’d left a part of me behind. I wanted more, even though the book had quite a satisfactory ending. What more could one want?

    KarenF says:

    Anne G, yes, I read the first book in that series – I think I liked it a little bit better than the second, but I still enjoyed it.  I’ve been alternating that series with reading the Billy Boyle mysteries, so my next mystery read will be book three of the BB series, but I intend to read more of the Spencer-Fleming books.

    Ok, I’m definitely going to read The Night Circus next (it’s already on my Nook, I just need to find a nice quiet corner on this rainy afternoon and curl up).

    I read Sea Lord by Virginia Kantra – slowly working my way through her Children of the Sea books and enjoying them.

    Re-reading Lord of Scoundrels and Anne of Green Gables (love those cheap e-books) during my commute.

    And I’m currently reading what seems like hundreds and hundreds of student projects.  It’s a grading weekend. 

    @KarenF – I read a sample of Bad Boys Do and it looked really good.  I haven’t read the earlier stories (they don’t intrigue me as much) – do I need to read them in order?

    Speaking of The Scarlet Letter, last week I read When She Woke by Hillary Jordan, which is a future-dystopian version of the former. It was an amazing read. Despite the fact that it didn’t have a traditional HEA (though the ending was a bit ambiguous, making me hope for a sequel) I think it would appeal to many romance readers, especially anyone who liked the Hunger Games.

    I clicked on the Dreamspinner ad on this website and found a book I really enjoyed.  Kindred Hearts by Rowan Speedwell is a very sweet m/m romance set in the Regency.  It was a page turner and while predictable was an extremely enjoyable read.

    Alas, Speedwell has not written any other Regency romances.

    I loved it so much, that I just bought another Regency Dreamspinner novel, Desire for Dearborne. :)

    KarenF says:

    Cleo, I think you’d be ok just to read the one… this is the second in a series, and I didn’t read the first.  I’ve read some of her other contemporaries and I’m pretty sure they aren’t connected to this series.  But after reading this one, I am tempted to go back and read the first book.  She might be one of the most inconsistent authors I’ve ever read (though I generally like her contemporary novels better than her historicals).

    @saphfire – email your request to SB Sarah (on the Contact Us page) and she’ll use it for the HaBO (Help a Bitch Out) feature.  I love HaBO and yours is a doozy

    I indulged in “Blood and Fire” the latest in the over the top out on a limb awesome that is Shannon McKenna’s McCloud brothers series.

    I’m reading the new Dicsworld novel, Snuff, and enjoying it very much.  Sam Vimes is always a joy, Sibyl has perhaps her largest role since Guards, Guards!, and Pratchett seems to be going for something of a Hot Fuzz vibe this time around, with several nods to Jane Austen.
