Second Day of Getting to Know You Contest

Hi Everyone--

Thanks for all the responses yesterday! Looks like many of us started reading romance at an early age, while a few found it a little later. Whenever you found it though, aren't you glad you did? I know I am.

Here's the second day question and rules are the same. One entry, per person, per day. Your name will go in the grand prize drawing to be made Tuesday, December 15.

Today's question:

NAME THE TITLE AND AUTHOR OF THE ROMANCE YOU ARE READING NOW OR WHAT WAS THE LAST ROMANCE YOU READ?

Hope to hear some great recommendations from everyone. To get us started, the romance I'm reading now is Hard To Hold by Stephanie Tyler. Loving it!

Your turn!

Catch of the Day by Kristan Higgins

I've read Hard to Hold and I'm really looking forward to Too Hot to Hold and Hold on Tight. I've been a fan of hers since she wrote for the Blaze line!I just finished reading this morning If Looks Could Chill by Nina Bruhns. This book is excellent! The first book was Shoot To Thrill and the next one comes out in April 2010 called A Kiss to Thrill. They are romantic suspense and hot,hot,hot!!!
I've also just finished Born of Ice by Sherrilyn Kenyon part of her League series it's a sci-fi romance, excellent series!

Hope I gave you some good suggestions for your down time! Besides who needs to clean house or do laundry anyway? LOL

Thanks, Lulu. I've heard good things about Catch of the Day. Will definitely have to check it out.

Christy Reece said...

Wow, Kim. Thanks for all the recommendations! I think I have Shoot To Thrill on my massive TBR pile. Will have to move it closer to the top. LOL. I'm about five years behind on my reading, so the pile is a bit overwhelming. It's nice to get some direction. (o:

Just finished Waking the Dead by Kylie Brant and started Shifting Plains by Jean Johnson

Kara C said...

Hard to Hold was very good! The best part is the next two in the series will be out in January, so I can get them read before February's BIG release...
I JUST finished the new Nina Bruhns book. Kim is right -very hot. :)
Today I will start the new Jo Davis book Hidden Fire as well as Christie Craig's new book Divorced, Desperate, and Deceived. That series is a hoot!

the latest read for me is
Santa, Baby by Lisa Renee Jones. In the last few months i have found i love the Harlequin Blaze and Intrigue books along with the Nocturne i have read for a while. The one before Santa, Baby was very good also A Man in a Kilt by Sandy Blair.

Ida Brugler said...

sorry little one posted before i was done. I also wanted to add Sherrilyn Kenyon's Born of Ice was after Santa Baby, but I have help typeing at the moment. And we are good at punching buttons.LOL

Ice by Linda Howard. It was an okay book but only covered one day but it was a fast read.

Kim F. and I must be on the same reading wave 'cause I read "Hard to Hold" and enjoyed it alot. The next two books are definitely on my "must get" list.

But then last week I discovered Nina Bruhns new trilogy and let me just say "Wow"! I just finished "If Looks Could Chill" and agree that it is excellent, as well as was the first one, "Shoot to Thrill." For those who must have a HEA at the end of a book, you'll get it, but beware there are also several cliffhangars. The plot continues to build, along with the addition of more great characters, and you're left anxiously awaiting answers. I rate these two books as "on the edge of my seat" reads and they don't get any better than that for me.

Would highly recommend these books to those who love the romantic suspense genre.

Christy Reece said...

Thanks, Robin! I also have Kylie's book on my TBR pile. Moving it closer to the top as well. And not only is Kylie a fabulous writer, she's an incredibly nice person!

Christy Reece said...

Kara, I've had my eye out for several months anticipating Stephanie Tyler's trilogy. I love back to back trilogies. Especially romantic suspense. And thanks for the plug of my February release. I hope that's the one you meant. (o;

Heard great things about Jo Davis and about Nina's books. And Christie Craig. She is so incredibly funny. And what a super nice person too!

Thanks for the great recommends!
