What I'm Reading...

I have to admit, it's not easy for me to get any real reading time in these days. It's even more rare to truly sink myself into a story. Usually, I'm rushing through a book, because there are fifty other things demanding my attention. So, when I find an author who can make me tune out all of lifes little dramas I hang onto her with both hands and I don't let go.

That's been the case with Christine Feehan's books. From the very first Dark book I was hooked. I've read every single book she's published and they're all great. However, now that she's picked up the Leopard series once more and seems to be concentrating on getting these stories out faster for us avid readers, I'm even more hungry! This series started back in 2002 with the anthology Fantasy. She had a novella in that book and it grabbed me. It was different than the Dark books but every bit as fantastic. Every bit as steamy. I worried when the series seemed to stop. Was she going to write more of these fantastic shifters?

The answer is a definite yes and I'm so thrilled. The latest and fourth Leopard book is "Wild Fire" and it's so good I'm having a hard time giving a crap about my own writing, the dishes, the laundry that's piling up. All I want to do is read!

And what a great cover, right??

Called on a dangerous assignment, leopard shifter Conner Vega returns to the Panama rainforest of his homeland, looking every bit the civilized male. But as a member of the most lethal of the shifter tribes, he doesn’t have a civilized bone in his body. He carries the scent of a wild animal in its prime, he bears the soul-crushing sins of past kills--and he’s branded by the scars of shame inflicted by the woman he betrayed.

Isabeau Chandler’s a Borneo shifter who’s never forgiven Conner--or forgotten him. The mating urge is still with her, and when she crosses Connor’s path, passions run like wild fire. But as Connor’s mission draws Isabeau closer, another betrayal lies waiting in the shadows--and it’s the most perilous and intimate one of all.

Read Chapter One

Anyone else around here reading something so wonderful that they simply do NOT want to put it down??

Oh, I'm always finding books I can't put down, lol. Recently though, I've discovered Shelly Laurenston's shifter books. They're great and snarky and leave me laughing. On the other hand, I'm also reading Lucy Monroe's Goddard Project series and loving it as well. *sigh* Too many books, too little money.

I just finished the third book in Sherrilyn Kenyon's League series, Born of Ice. I know there will be others in the series coming out. Can't wait. I like the way she blends snark and compassion in her characters. They are a lot of fun.
I agree...Too many books, so little time.

I have a guilty obsession right now and can't seem to stop buying and reading,what I call Darcy books. Versions of Pride and Prejudice by diff author. Sooo romantic,full of passion,tragedy,mistakes,partings and reconciliation but Darcy and Lizzy always overcome and continue to love each other beyond reason. Sigh!I own and have read every book of Roberts,Feehan,Kenyon and all of the Prey books by Sanford over and over. Ordering new books now.Spears,Bishop,etc.
