Books Read In March

Angels' Blood by Nalini Singh -- A wonderful new take on the vampire mythos and involved otherworldly creatues known in the book as angels. I can't wait to see where the series takes me. Very inventive and well written.

Talk Me Down by Victoria Dahl -- Victoria's first contemporary novel, this book explores what happens when a woman who feels she must hide her successful career as an erotic romance novelist from friends and family returns to the small, secluded town she grew up in, falls in lust, falls in love and falls back into the clutches of her stalker ex-boyfriend.

Hot by Julia Harper -- Elizabeth Hoyt's contemporary alter ego. A great read that are at turns hilarious and touching.

Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortensen --

Wicked Game by Lisa Jackson and Nancy Bush -- These two sisters combine their efforts for the first time in this book. As the beginning of a creepy, suspenseful series, it's a solid introduction to the mysteries of The Colony of Deception Bay. The second book, written by Nancy Bush, is due out in April.

Scandal in Copper Lake by Marilyn Pappano -- Book four of Marilyn's Calloway Brothers series, this books delves into prejudice and interracial relationships in a wonderfully introspective way. No preaching in this book. Just a solid love story between two people who are, in their own ways, both outcasts and the golden children.

Mosiac: Pieces of My Life So Far by Amy Grant -- A touching and honest reflection of pieces of Amy Grant's life and how both the good and the bad shaped her into the woman she is today.

Got Your Number by Stephanie Bond -- Stephanie's second romantic suspense. It's been sitting in my To-Be-Read pile since it's release in 2001 and now that I've read it, I wonder why I wated so long.


  1. I haven't read a Marilyn Pappano book in quite some time. Mostly when she started to turn suspense. I should check out the series. This is book 4 of 4 or is the series ongoing?

  2. The series if 4 books that I'm aware of. There were only 4 brothers. There could be more books about the town but since Marilyn Pappano doesn't have her website up and running anymore, I can't email her to ask. The first book is a little...different. The other three are romantic suspense but very character focused. And they are shorter then the SIMs used to be so they read fast.
