What I'm Reading Wednesday
This week I finished Sweet Seduction by Maya Banks. Nathan is so alpha, yet he's met his match in Julie! A nice simple but hot story.

I'm currently reading All Jacked Up by Lorelei James. I do love her stories. I love these two strong characters and the sparks flyign between them.

In my non fiction reading, I'm working on Everyday Life in Regency and Victorian England by Kristine Hughes. No, I don't think I'm going to write a historical romance, but I have this idea...Also reading Lords of Battle by Stephen Allen. Also related to my idea...which still needs a lot of work. Stay tuned!

This week I finished In the Dark by PG Forte (just out yesterday at Samhain but I got a sneak peek!) I could not put this book down. I loved the vampires PG has created - a tortured hero who makes my toes curl, a sweet and innocent heroine who brought tears to my eyes several times in the story, moments of pure heart ache, and laughter and oh yeah, it's hot too! I had to keep reading to learn everyone's story and my only disappointment was that it ended! But good news, this is Book One of a series so we get to read more about these sexy vampires - I just hope it's soon!

And I started Sweet Seduction by Maya Banks. This story features Julie and Nathan, who we met in Sweet Surrender and Sweet Persuasion. Nathan is so funny, such a...guy! I'm enjoying this book!

This week I read Maison Domine by Skylar Kade, a naughty little BDSM story with lots of emotion and heat.

I also read Simply Wicked by Kate Pearce. These "Simply" stories keep me coming back for more! The characters in this story fascinated me, Anthony seems to have hit rock bottom in his dark sexual exploits and wants to change, but it's so difficult for him. I loved how he fought for that. Marguerite fascinated me too and the hints throughout the book about her relationship with her deceased husband intrigued and kept me reading, though I may have wanted to know more sooner, to know that she was an equal match for Anthony. And I can't wait to see how Kate pulls off the next "Simply" story!

I'm now reading Songbird by Maya Banks. I do love Maya Banks's story but this one unfortunately feels a little like "deja vu" (deja lu peut-etre?)because it's so similar to other stories.

What am I reading this week? An e-book of course! It’s Read an E-book Week!

This week the Samhain Café is CRAZY with all kinds of things going on and lots of contests. I myself will be there Thursday at 8:00 (EST) and may have a little contest to win an e-book, as well as some excerpts; and I’m part of today’s scavenger hunt at The Samhellion - Fiction, Articles and Musings by Samhain Publishing's Leading Authors.

The e-book I’m reading: BIG Temptation by Robin Rotham. I got this book to download onto my new Sony reader for this weekend (going away for a long weekend, lots of time to read on the drive) but I have to confess I already started it! And I have to get Amber Eyes, by Maya Banks, just out yesterday.

I did read a paper book this week, too – Instant Attraction by Jill Shalvis. Jill is one of my favs and this story was great. The attraction was instant, but it was believable. That’s important for me – an instant attraction that’s too over-the-top loses me. It has to build – and the sexual tension in this story built beautifully. I loved that Cam was a snowboarder – way cool! – only wish there was more actual snowboarding in the story, I love athletes in action. Both Katie and Cam are wounded and I like how they dealt with it so differently – and yet not so differently.
