Ms. Rule is one of the best true crime writers i have found. reading one of her books is like watching a Dateline special on a criminal case. she does not skimp on details and shows both sides of the case well.
#19 - Dreams Made Flesh by Anne Bishop
lovely little collection of Black Jewels series related tales. i especially enjoyed learning how Lucivar and Marian got together, which is only given a glimpse of in the Black Jewels trilogy.
#20 - Soul Magic by Karen Whiddon
i liked the characters, but the plot just didn't grab my attention, i'm sorry to say. it took me a long time to finish this.
#21 - Kiss of Crimson by Lara Adrian
#22 - Midnight Awakening by Lara Adrian
#23 - Midnight Rising by Lara Adrian
#24 - Veil of Midnight by Lara Adrian
#25 - Ashes of Midnight by Lara Adrian
i cannot put these down. each member of the Breed gets an equally fascinating and sexy story of his own. i was pleasantly surprised to find that Ashes of Midnight is the story of Andreas Reichen, who is not a Breed warrior, but has a minor role in past novels as a Darkhaven leader in Germany. i loved his character and it was great to see him get a story of his very own. i very much look forward to the series continuing.
as i have said in a past post, fans of Christine Feehan and JR Ward, take note. this lady is right up there with them.
#26 - Checkmate by Doranna Durgin (Athena Force series)
coping with the possibility that her husband is cheating, saving lives, bringing down terrorists in the fictional Middle Eastern country of Berzhaan--all in a day's work for FBI attache Selena Jones. a nice read, as all the Athena Force and many of the Silhouette Bombshell books are. i am highly disappointed that Silhouette Books discontinued this line awhile back, as i would have liked to see more Athena Force novels.
#27 - Cornered Tigress by Jade Lee
BLAH. nice setting but a terrible read. the couple did not keep my attention AT ALL and i had to force myself to finish it. romance lovers, avoid this author.
#28 - The Love Slave by Bertrice Small
have to say was mildly disappointed with this one. i usually like her books but this story wasn't as attention grabbing, though it WAS very sexy. but i think i'll stick with her Skye O'Malley novels instead.
currently/still working on for March:
The Life of Elizabeth I by Alison Weir
A Dangerous Love by Bertrice Small
Saving Faith by David Baldacci
and Rachel Caine's Morganville Vampires series
