EmilyFast and Loose by Elizabeth BevarlyFast and Loose by Elizabeth Bevarly

Read by Emily 

When Thoroughbred trainer Cole Early arrives in Kentucky for the Derby, he is annoyed that there are no open hotel rooms. But a stroke of luck finds him a small bungalow to rent for the two weeks just in time. When Lulu Flannery let her friend talk her into renting her house for derby week, she didn’t think that playboy Cole Early would ever be the renter of her small house. She is immediately concerned about the party boy wreaking havoc in her home, but instantaneous sparks fly when Cole asks Lulu to be his “buffer,” for two weeks to keep the other women at bay. She tries to stay immune, but she can’t control the flames when Cole is near. But will his rich, playboy status push Lulu away, or can his charms bring her back and convince her that love is worth all the risks? 
I absolutely loved The Thing about Men and when I saw this book on the shelf I had to read it. A devilishly handsome man who loves animals? What could be better? This book has a great story, and not only do you get to read about Cole and Lulu’s romance, but Lulu’s best friend Bree, finds love in the least likely of places. But will the man she’s looking for ultimately be the man she wants? Read Fast and Loose to find out. I highly recommend it.

JanThe Devil’s Bones by Jefferson BassThe Devil

Read by Jan
Shades of "C.S.I." and Patricia Cornwell’s "Body Farm"!  As a forensic anthropologist, Bill Brockton attempts to determine whether a woman’s charred body was accidental or arson after a murder, using the University of Tennessee’s ‘body farm’. There he torches a body to observe how fire consumes flesh and bone. A visit to a crematorium introduced me to ‘everything I wanted to know about cremation’  and then some  On another trip to a Georgia crematory where the owners had run out of  money he found numerous bodies laying  around in varying states of decomposition. (Remember a couple of years back when that actually happened?)  Further attempts on his own life add to the action. I quite enjoyed this book…’twas right up my alley.


EmilyClose to Perfect by Tina Donahue Close to Perfect by Tina Donahue

Read by Emily

Stripping down to his birthday suit, while swimming in his private pool shouldn’t have caused any problems for Josh Wyatt. But when you’re rich, handsome, and in the public eye, there are always paparazzi around. Josh’s assistant has the bright idea of hiring a bodyguard until his unseemly pictures are yesterday’s news. And Josh was all for it when he sees the person they have decided to hire. Ex-cop Tess Franklin thinks Josh’s popularity will draw the attention to her family’s small bodyguard business, bringing higher profile clients. But once meeting the devilishly handsome man, she can’t keep her thoughts or hands to herself, much to the distress of her ex-cop father. He can’t see that Tess is a grown woman, who knows what she wants. Right? Well, once the story blows over, Josh has a hard time convincing Tess that love is the greatest risk, but Tess doesn’t believe that Josh really cares, will he convince her? 
I know that you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but the moment I passed by this book on the shelf at my local bookstore, I immediately did a double take. Oh My Gosh! The man on the cover was so cute! I know, I know, back to the blurb. Ok, well. I loved the tension between the two characters in this book. You can almost feel the passion between them. Josh is the self-made rich, pla
yboy, but once meeting Tess he can’t be see his future and hers together. This makes for a truly great read.

Wolf Tales V  by Kate DouglasWolf Tales V by Kate Douglas

Read by Deb

Wolf Tales V continues the saga of the Chanku.  Packmates Ulrich Mason and Baylor Quinn are on separate missions to help two women discover their Chanku Legacy.  Ulrich finds you’re never too old to find true love Millie West, while Baylor helps to bring out the beauty in a beast and finds his soul mate in Manda Smith.  Meanwhile, Millie and Manda share a long lost bond of their own.  A missing piece to this puzzle is yet to be discovered and he is closer than anyone realizes.  

I can only imagine that Wolf Tales VI will reveal more secrets, exploits and loving.  An erotic series I just can’t seem to get enough of.


JoyceVirgins and Martyrs by E. L. MerkelVirgins and Martyrs by E. L. Merkel

Read by Joyce

When a women’s clinic is bombed, Detective Lieutenent Aria Quynn investigates the relationship between the right-wing group, The Centurions of the Lord, and the claims made that a 12 year old girl is miraculously conversing with Mary, the mother of God daily.  With these and the accompanying media frenzy, the situation is as potentially explosive as the cause of the investigation.
Virgins and Martyrs was spell-binding, and I tried to read it all in one sitting till my eyes crossed.  The mystery of the criminal investigation was very suspenseful, and the controversial issues of women’s rights, religious freedoms and media responsibility made the political intrigue feel immediate and frightening.  I will be watching for the next Aria Quynn book.


RhondaTwenty Wishes by Debbie MacomberTwenty Wishes by Debbie Macomber

Read by Rhonda

A group of widows of various ages get together on Valentine’s Day.  They’re depressed and decide to make a list of Twenty Wishes – things that they wanted to do that weren’t necessarily goals, but more wishes.  Like Anne Marie who who always wanted red cowboy boots.

I found this book to be sweet, inspiring, whimsicial and just plain heartwarming.  It makes me want to write my own list of twenty wishes.

LizTwilight by Stephenie Meyer 
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Read by Liz

Bella is the new kid in town and in school.  Edward is the unusual boy she is attracted to.  It just so happens he is a vampire.  But when a group of tracker vampires takes notice of Bella, it’s up to Edward and his group to save the day.  

Twilight is a young adult, vampire novel.  I don’t read YA, I don’t read vampire books.  I devoured this 500+ page book in a few days – barely sleeping.  Both Bella and Edward were compelling.  Edward could pretty much melt your knees (if you read standing up).  It’s also one of the sexiest books I’ve read in a long time, and the most they do is kiss a few times.  I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!  (It should be noted that this series will be made into a movie soon)
I hope you enjoy this extra day of book blurbs and my undying gratitude to the wonderful readers who make it possible for so many books to get the exposure they need and deserve.

Bottom Line:  May 24th is Brother’s Day, so a special Happy Brother’s Day to my baby brothers John, Tom, Bob and Bill.  Sorry, no cards in the mail since the price of stamps went up.  Enjoy this blinky one.
