WW Ladies Book Club

Barbara Vey -- October 4th, 2012

Yesterday I volunteered to serve free lunches to college kids at UW-Milwaukee.  It’s such an exhilerating feeling to be around them.  Their thirst for knowledge, their whole lives ahead of them.  I hadn’t been back to the campus since I went there 30 years ago and it all looked the same (except for the ways the kids were dressed).  Next time I’m going to take books to pass out along with their lunches.  Fun books to be read when the text books get overwhelming.  Now here’s what the WW Ladies have been reading this week.




Take It Like a Vamp by Candace Havens

Read by joysann

Casey Meyers is wild about her best friend and neighbor, Nick Christos, as he’s so much more to her than gorgeous and wealthy, though she takes pains to not let him know that. However, Nick is aware, and feels the same about her, but he’s constrained by his years on the Supernatural Council, and the laws about vampires and other supernaturals not revealing themselves to mortals. Now he has to decide whether to risk his love and her life to the dangers and politics of his volatile secret world.

Take It Like a Vamp was a fun, romantic read that made me laugh even as I was wishing to be in Casey’s shoes. Part Cinderella, part Pretty Woman (without the hooker part), and maybe a little Sabrina, it’s hard to not dream of the fantasy. Candace’s new paranormal will not disappoint.




Almost a Scandal by Elizabeth Essex


Read by Ashley

Sally Kent comes from a long line of royal sailors, her family has served the crown for generations that is until her youngest brother decides he doesn’t want to anymore. So in order to save their family name Sally disguise herself as her brother and takes his place on the ship. Sally is an amazing sailor but what she doesn’t count on is a tall, dark, and handsome Cole, who is her Lieutenant, and might just make her blow her cover.

Almost a Scandal is a bold and brazen fast paced romance with a daring heroine and smoldering hot hero! With an explosive danger and red-hot romance this book is most definitely a book to treasure!



Jacked Up by Erin McCarthy
Read by Heidi

Eve Monroe may live up to her reputation as the most up-tight PR agent on the planet, but she can hold her own. Growing up with two brothers in the car racing industry, as well as her father, has made her the woman she is today. She thinks she is happy, that is, until Nolan Ford’s wardrobe malfunction on National Television turns her world upside down. Now she is racing herself to fix the problem while denying her attraction. Because she is good at that too. Until Nolan starts to break open that hard shell of hers, and shows her that she has a softer side, and how he likes it.

I think there are only 3 words I can think of for this book: Hot, steamy, and sexy!! And no pun intended, but I raced through the book, and I definitely liked it!! Thanks goodness fall is here, so I didn’t overheat with this book!



The Garden Intrigue by Lauren Willig

Listened to by joysann

Augustus Whittlesby has been boring the new French society circles with his awful poetry and dramatic affectations to the point that everyone ignores him, including the secret police. This gives him leeway to spy on Napoleon’s plans to invade England by finagling his way into accompanying annoying American Emma Morris Delgardie to Malmaison to observe the rumored testing of a new weapon. But Augustus’ and Emma’s friendship grows into something more as danger of exposure threatens each in a different way.

The Garden Intrigue is part of The Pink Carnation series, a delightful and fascinating blend of historical and contemporary romance as a modern-day scholar uncovers the 200 year old manuscripts, revealing English spies and their work. I highly recommend listening to these in audio as narrator Kate Reading is marvelous at instilling the already delightful characters with even more life and color, making listening a real pleasure.

The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae by Stephanie Laurens


Read by Ashley

Angelica Cynster is attending yet another ball which are usually very dull. Angelica hoped for some excitement but what she didn’t expect was meeting the very handsome and mysterious Earl of Glencrae. And she never in a million years would have expected him to kidnap her! What Angelica doesn’t know is that he is forced to kidnap her in order to save his castle and his clan. Fighting against all odds, Angelica and Earl are desperate to find a way to make it work.

The Capture of the Earl of Glencrae is a sinfully sexy and irresistible book, which breaks away from the traditional historical romance novel. It is a well-crafted and fast-paced book that kept me entertained from beginning to end!

    I love going back to my college campus-Auburn University. I go once or twice a year. They, the college, have started a reading program where all the students have to read a certain book at the same time. The students also attend a book club meeting to discuss the book. I think it is a wonderful idea.

    One thing I’ve noticed is always that there are plenty of misconceptions regarding the financial institutions intentions any time talking about foreclosed. One myth in particular is the fact that the bank would like your house. Your banker wants your hard earned dollars, not your own home. They want the cash they loaned you along with interest. Steering clear of the bank will simply draw some sort of foreclosed final result. Thanks for your posting.

    I believe that avoiding ready-made foods is a first step to be able to lose weight. They will often taste beneficial, but processed foods possess very little vitamins and minerals, making you eat more to have enough energy to get over the day. Should you be constantly having these foods, moving over to grain and other complex carbohydrates will make you to have more strength while ingesting less. Thanks alot : ) for your blog post.

    Thanks for giving your ideas on this blog. As well, a fantasy regarding the financial institutions intentions when talking about foreclosure is that the lender will not take my repayments. There is a specific amount of time which the bank will take payments in some places. If you are as well deep within the hole, they are going to commonly desire that you pay that payment entirely. However, that doesn’t mean that they will not take any sort of installments at all. If you and the financial institution can seem to work anything out, the particular foreclosure method may stop. However, should you continue to miss payments beneath new program, the foreclosures process can just pick up from where it was left off.

They offer convenient ways to organize households, pay bills, go shopping, study, pay attention to music and in many cases watch television shows. An innovative approach to complete all of these tasks is by using a laptop computer. These pc’s are mobile, small, highly effective and convenient.

    Great post here. One thing I would really like to say is that often most professional areas consider the Bachelor Degree as the entry level standard for an online education. Whilst Associate Certification are a great way to start, completing your current Bachelors opens up many entrances to various professions, there are numerous internet Bachelor Diploma Programs available via institutions like The University of Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan. Another thing is that many brick and mortar institutions provide Online versions of their qualifications but typically for a drastically higher charge than the providers that specialize in online degree programs.
