Recommend Monday

Good Monday Everyone!

Hope you had a spectacular weekend, including some great reads. Can't wait to hear what you're recommending today.

I'm still in the midst of preparing CHANCES ARE for your reading pleasure. :) Since we're several days from being able to get this out to you, I posted the first chapter so you'll be ready for it when you can finally read the whole thing. Here's the link: CHANCES ARE excerpt

Would any of you be interested in developing a Street Team for LCR? Than you, Lisa (A Tasty Read) for mentioning it to me! While I'm a newbie about stuff like this, I would love to develop one if we have some interest. From my understanding, team members would read and then post a review on a favorite review site and also talk it up in their social media venues. In exchange, members would receive the book early, get special LCR swag, and exclusive insights or excerpts of upcoming books.

For those of you who are already on an author's street team, does this sound about right? I really hope to write between 3 and 5 more LCR books before ending the series, however that all depends upon how the sales of CHANCES ARE goes. Getting the word out would be so helpful. So if you're interested at all, please email me at I will probably cut it off at certain number. Once I see where we are, we'll develop some kind of email list so we can communicate.

Please let me know via email by Wednesday if you would be interested. One disclaimer: Please don't feel obligated or pressured to do this. I know you all have very busy lives. Having you buy and read my books is my privilege and so very appreciated!

Now, since I've been immersed in readying CHANCES ARE, I haven't had the opportunity to read anything additional. However, I do have a question for you. Out of all the books you've read, what is the one that you've reread the most? For me it would have to be Linda Howard's MacKenzie's Mountain. I adore Wolf and Mary!

With the upcoming release of MIDNIGHT SECRETS on the 30th, I'm going to be visiting several blog spots. Later this week, I'll pop back on and give you a list of places and times to look for Ella. I'll be answering lots of fun and unusual questions and giving away books. Stay tuned!

Okay, I'm off to hunker down in my office and get some work done. Now, tell us what we should be reading and what you've reread the most.

Happy Monday to all!

Highlander Most Wanted by Maya Banks, and a few re-reads.

Happy Reading!!

I'm off today and headed to Texas tomorrow. Looking forward to some extra reading time this week!!!

Last week I read the Tara Sivec Chocolate lovers triology. OMG, loved it!! If you enjoy extremely salty language, complete inappropriateness and lots of LOL moments in a book, these are for you. Thanks to Jackie, Hope, and Alison for making sure I understood that these books were snarky and sarcastic and right up my alley!!!

Hi Christy! Happy Monday, all!

I don't do many re-reads, I am so far behind in my TBH pile I rarely have time to go back to a book for another read.

This week I am almost finished with Dead Reckoning by Lina Castillo and really enjoying it.

Kris, your about the 4th person that has suggested the Tara Sivec trilogy, so I might have to move it to the top of the TBH pile, sounds right up my alley too!

Hoping for sun and spring this week. Have a great week!

Hi Christy, hi Everyone!

Fife more LCR books sounds awesome Christy - I am keeping my fingers crossed for a fantastic sale of Chances are.

Like many others here on RM I read Kristan Higgins`"Best Man" last week and simply loved it.

Thinking hard about which book I reread the most.
I can´t really decide - but my top five are:
Dream Man by Linda Howard,Show no Mercy by Cindy Gerard,Run to Me and Return to Me by one Christy Reece, No Place to Run by Maya Banks and
Hard Evidence by Pamela Clare.
Ups thats more than five - but I was never any good at calculus anyway.

Happy reading Everyone!

Hi Christy!

My TBR is so out of control that I don't get many re-reads in. This year I did do a re-read of Kristen Ashley's Rock Chick series.

I only have one rec this week, its the last book in Tara Sivec's Chocolate Lover's Trilogy...Troubles and Treats. This last book didn't disappoint, had me LOLing several times!

Have a good week everyone!

Loved the excerpt from Chances Are, Christy. I can't wait to read the book, and I am counting on reading more in the future.

This week I read The Missing by Shiloh Walker, and I liked it alot. The Departed is the next book in the series, and I have it in my TBR stack. Currently, I am reading Dangerous Refuge by Elizabeth Lowell. In audio, I have been revisiting, Suzanne Brockmann's Tall, Dark and Dangerous Serious. I just finished Harvard's Education. I love all those Navy seal books.

Probably out of all the books I have reread over the years, I would guess the one most read would be Sea Swept in the Chesapeake Bay Series by Nora Roberts. I loved Cameron!!!! Others are th entire McKenzie Series by Linda Howard, The Perfect Man by Linda Howard, The Bride by Julie Garwood, and Naked in Death by JD Robb. They have all had multiple rereads over the years.

Happy Reading!

Hey Everyone! Thanks so much for the recommends. I meant to come back and comment sooner but last week was probably one of the busiest I've had in a long while. But it was a good one.

Hope you'll come by in a few moments for today's Recommend Monday! Can't wait to hear about your great reads from last week.

See you soon!

Hi from Jordan in the Middle East.

My most re-read book has to be Whitney My Love by Judith Macnaught... A classic!

Christy, love your books... Just wish there was more of them more often :-)
