In the first book, Kitty and the Midnight Hour, Kitty is a young woman who was turned into a werewolf as the result of an attack and left abandoned. She was found by her local pack, but she was so shy and nervous that for the first book she was at the very bottom of the pack hiearchy, and treated badly. Her day job is as a radio DJ, and she finds her voice doing a paranormal radio advice show, and it empowers her enough to stand up for herself.
Ms. Vaughn writes a great heroine, as well as the supporting characters. Kitty's adventures leave you wanting more, more, more!!
Kitty's House of Horrors is the 7th book in the series.Ms. Vaughn's website and blog.
It opens with the sad story of a lonely little boy, Simon, whose father, the Duke of Hastings, won't acknowledge him because of his stutter. His mother died during childbirth. He spends his childhood trying to impress his father and overcomes his stutter and goes off to college. He then goes abroad, harboring a hate for his father, until his father dies.
Then we meet the Bridgertons - Anthony, Benedict, Colin, Daphne, Eloise, Francesca, Gregory, and Hyacinth, oh, and their mother, Violet. Anthony, Benedict, Colin, and Daphne are attending a ball when Simon arrives. Simon is a friend of Anthony's from Oxford and is attracted to Daphne until he realizes she's Anthony's sister. After attending a few balls where the mothers of eligible daughters keep pushing them onto the eligible bachelors, Simon and Daphne hatch a plan to fake an attachment to avoid all the matchmaking. It works, to a point. Simon and Daphne cannot stop the attraction between them, and when they are caught kissing behind a hedge, Daphne's brother demands they marry. Simon has major baggage from his childhood and is determined not to marry or have children, so he refuses. Anthony challenges him to a duel over his sister's honor. Daphne runs out to the duel and stops it and convinces Simon to marry her. He explains he can't have children and, despite her disappointment at this news, agrees to marry him.
They marry, and are happy, until Daphne realizes it's not that Simon can't have children, it's that he won't have children. They have a huge arguement and he comes home drunk. Daphne ends up tricking into "finishing" and he is furious. He leaves her to stay at another of his estates. She returns to their home in London and hopes she is pregnant. Once she realizes she is, she sends him a note. He's been miserable without her, and she's been miserable without him.
He comes back, thinking she's pregnant, but it turns out she's not. They have a heart-to-heart and he agrees to try for a family. The epilogue is sweet and satisfying.
I loved this book - the characters are charming and I <3 the whole Bridgerton family!

And Kate? Ugh, how much does her life suck? She had to wait for her sister to turn 16 before they could "come out" together - so now she's 21 (practically a spinster) and is stuck on the sidelines watching her sister get all the attention.
I'm sure they'll end up together, but at this point (less than halfway through), I just hate Anthony and wish someone would be nice to Kate.... please tell me it's going to be okay.....
Update: Anthony did just ask Kate for a boon!!! (how I love a boon). Things are looking up...

Sunday, Seth runs into David at Target while he's shopping with Molly. David has 9 brothers and sisters and Katie is the youngest. She and Molly are friends. David tells Seth he should bring Molly to the library the next night as there is an author reading for the kids.
They get to the library and, surprise, the Children's author doing the reading is David. Seth learns that in addition to massage and waiting tables, David has a master's degree in education and several children's books under his belt. He choses to do massage because he likes it.
Seth is thinking about David a lot. They're opposites but he likes how he feels when he's with David.
While all this is going on, Seth is getting phone calls from Molly's biological father, basically demanding money or he'll try to get custody. He's a loser alcoholic and Seth calls his attorneys to deal with the problem. ALSO, Seth's old boyfriend, Quinn, is in town. Quinn is a fussy-type guy who left Seth when Seth's sister was sick and moved in with them. Quinn took him for a financial ride and Seth hasn't forgiven him for not coming to his sister's funeral. Quinn keeps attempting to talk to Seth and Seth keeps shutting him out.
Seth gets some photos of his "encounter" with David behind the restaurant, and David freaks out. Things get crazy when Molly gets kidnapped and Seth and David try to find her. They also discover who's trying to blackmail them.
Ms. Gregg ties up all the loose ends nicely, with a surprise from David at the end. I liked this book. I liked watching Seth go from a grumpy curmudgeon to a nice guy. His worries over their age difference were cute. David was a likeable character and their relationship was sweet. It was certainly a Happy Ending.
When I got to B&N, the line was long, so I decided to check the shelves first. Not there. Not in Romance, not in Paranormal. No Jeaniene Frost titles at all. This is not looking good. Frustrated and disappointed, I decide to peruse the racks, hoping a sexy Highlander story will cheer me up. An employee walks past me with three books in her hands, and puts one on the shelf - where a Jeaniene Frost book would go. AND, from where I'm standing, the cover looks familiar..... I casually stroll over and ask her what book she just shelved - it's Destined for an Early Grave!!!! One copy.
I thank her, grab it, and head to the cash register - nope, no reserved copy for me. Apparently I got the only copy on the West Bank. Hmmm...
Here's my thing: If a book comes out on July 28, I want to be able to stroll in as soon as the store opens and buy it. Not wait until the truck comes in or they get around to stocking it. New releases should be stocked the night before. Am I wrong? If video stores can do it, why not B&N?
Now, off to read and forget all about it............

Now, I've seen the movie The Princess Bride but never read the book. I've read The Secret but it was a loaner and I'm thrilled I can now re-read it as I wish. I know who Nora Roberts is but I've not read any of her books, and I don't know any of the other authors.

I've been so involved reading all these Highlander Romances that I'm very behind writing about them! I tore through Julie Garwood's Highland stories - I read one of her Regency (?) romances, Lion's Lady, but didn't care for it too much. I also read one of her contemporaries, Shadow Dance, which was pretty good, although I think there were several books in the series before it. I've also just discovered Kinley MacGregor (Sherrilyn Kenyon). I've read books two and three of her Highlander books and love them! Not a big surprise as I do love me some Dark Hunters!
I also tried to read The Virgin's Secret by Victoria Alexander but couldn't finish it. I've finally given up and will try again later. I'm surprised, because I LOVED What A Lady Wants. I'm going to do a post about it - I spent a good portion of the book laughing out loud.
I'm also looking for recommendations for a good Book Swap. I've found one or two online but don't know if it's more of a hassle than it's worth, or if they're reputable. All I know is I'm gonna have to get another job to keep myself in books!

Okay, I am totally turning into a Julie Garwood fangirl! I really liked The Secret. Hmm...I wonder why: sexy highlanders, fiesty heroines, hot kisses, tender love scenes....mmmmmm...
Oh, where was I? Oh, yes, the book. Ms. Garwood weaves great stories. I love her heroes, her heroines, and her supporting characters. I do wonder about some of the dialogue, whether it's too modern, but thankfully she doesn't do the doonae's and hasna's. But you know what? I don't care! She writes a great story.
The Secret is set in 12th Century Scotland. Judith and Frances Catherine were small children who met at a seasonal fair set on the border between England and Scotland. Judith was from England, Frances Catherine was from the Scottish Highlands. Each year they would meet at the fair and became fast, fast friends, even though the English and the Scots were bitter enemies. Frances Catherine's mother died in childbirth, and her granmother did as well. Frances Catherine was terrified the same fate would fall to her. As a child, Judith swore to help her when they grew up and had babies, she promised she wouldn't let her die.
Fast forward a few years and Frances Catherine is married and pregnant. She is married to her Laird's brother, Patrick. When they got married she made Patrick swear that he would bring Judith to help her with the delivery. The clan elders do not believe Judith will come, but they send someone to ask her to come anyway, so Patrick's vow to his wife is not broken. It's an eight day journey to Judith, and they are shocked when they arrive and she is packed and ready to go. She can't wait to see her friend! The Scottish escort is rough and unfriendly, but Judith wears them down with friendliness and spunkyness. She rides to Scotland with Iain, the Laird, who quickly becomes captivated by her, as do the rest of his soldiers.
By the time she arrives in Scotland, Judith realizes she has feelings for Iain. She has a wonderful reunion with Frances Catherine and starts to settle in. When word gets around that she's there to help with the pregnancy and birth, she receivesa request to assist another woman. Turns out the midwife is a real piece of work and has scared the other expectant mothers silly. Judith learned about midwifery as soon as she found out Frances Catherine was pregnant, but has not ever actually witnessed a birth, so needless to say she is terrified when they come to her for assistance. All goes well, however, and she ends up assisting in a few more births.
The midwife becomes jealous, as Judith is becoming sought after and she is not. Also, the midwife wanted Iain to marry her daughter, and is not happy about his attentions to Judith. She has another small episode with the midwife's assistant, but handles it cleverly and turns her into a staunch ally instead.
Meanwhile, Judith has a secret about her father that no one but Frances Catherine knows. When Judith was an infant, her mother left her father, the Highland Laird MacLean, to go back to England. She told Judith her father was an English baron who died fighting the Scots. Judith didn't find out the truth for many years. The only memento she has of ther father is a ring with his seal on it that she wears around her neck. Her father is one of Iain's enemies.
Ian accidentally finds out who her father is, and convinces her to marry him before it becomes common knowledge for fear his council will object. She begins to enjoy her life with Iain and endears herself to his people.
Then, one afternoon, Judith goes for a ride with a few guards, and they are overtaken by MacLean soldiers and kidnapped. The Laird MacLean intends to use her as bait to kill Iain, but Judith surprises him by telling him she is his daughter and showing him the ring. He asks many questions and embraces her as his daughter and Iain makes an alliance with him without the council's approval. Frances Catherine goes into labor and has some problems, but delivers with Judith's assistance and all is well.
The council has a meeting to discuss Iain's alliance and his wife's relationship to MacLean, and Iain resigns as Laird. Judith prepares to leave and doesn't know Iain has resigned. As they prepare to leave, one by one the rest of the clan states their intent to go with them. There is a scene where they discuss the wants and needs of the clan, and Iain ends up remaining Laird, with Judith at his side.
Loved this story, there is no way my review does it any kind of justice. Her characters are so well-rounded and the storyline is so full! Great read.

I couldn't put it down - the kids are eating cereal for dinner
and the laundry is piling up until I'm done reading.
It's going on my keeper shelf!
I really liked this book.
It was hard to put down - I'll probably whip up something quick
to feed the kids and skip the non-essential chores
so I can get back to reading.
This was a good book.
I wasn't on the edge of my seat but I wasn't bored either.
The household chores are still getting done,
but I might cut a few corners.
This book was just okay. I'm not pushing back
any household obligations to read.
I really didn't like this book/Did Not Finish

Hi Patti!I attempted to post the following in comments at your blog, but I don't have an online identity that it seemed to like. I tried a couple then decided to simply e-mail you directly.First off, thanks for giving Ensnared a try. I enjoyed reading your review and think based on what you said that you'll enjoy Deceived by Desire if you decide to give it a chance.It's a novel-length story focused on the brother Nash, more than twice as long as Ensnared. My style grew quite a bit as a writer between these two books and I had a new editor who taught me a ton. If memory serves (which it should, I probably read each scene twelve-plus times while writing it!) I don't think there's any finger-fixation issues. ;) If there are, I owe you an apology!And all of the love and sex scenes are focused solely between the two leads (i.e., no threesomes this time). Let me know what you think if you give it a read, and thanks again for the great write up. I do try to learn and improve based on reader feedback! :-) Larissa
Wow, thank you Ms. Lyons! I'm definitely going to give Deceived by Desire a try!!

Gabrielle's mother was a princess from St. Biel, and her father was an English Baron. St. Biel had a curious history; there was a story of lost gold, but no one knew if it was true.
Gabrielle was a beautiful young woman, and to keep peace between England and Scotland, her king, John, had promised her to an older Laird of a Highland clan. Her dowry was to be a piece of land in Scotland that belonged to the king, but many clansman coveted this piece of land. As Gabrielle arrived at the Abbey where she was to be wed, she came upon a group of men preparing to murder another and ambush his kinsmen. Under cover of woods, she shot and killed the main attacker (with a bow and arrow!) and his co-conspirators ran. She rushed out and brought the injured man to the Abbey to be nursed back to health, but did not want anyone to know as she was not aware of the parties involved and didn't want to accidentally end up in the middle of a clan war. While at the Abbey her betrothed was murdered. There were two English Barons who had been fighting to marry her before the King gave her away and they each saw this as an opportunity marry her; however things went awry and Gabrielle was accused of being a whore and banished from England. The Baron's plan was to kidnap her while she had no protection, however, Gabrielle's cousin by marriage was there and knew the accusations were false. He convinced his friend, Laird Colm MacHugh to take Gabrielle under his protection and marry her. MacHugh did not want to do it but owed his friend a debt (favor, not money) and took her. He told her they would marry in 6 months so no one would wonder if any children were his. Of course he is very Alpha and expects her to follow his orders and she replies with "as you wish" and does whatever she wants. Oh, and the man whose life she saved turned out to be Colm's brother.
There are many trials they must face, but they do fall in love. The king finds out about Gabrielle's banishment and the lies surrounding it and has new plans for Gabrielle. He sends a messenger to apologize and offer her the land back but she knows it's a trick. She quickly (and secretly) marries Colm and is therefore free of her obligation to follow the king's orders. But one of the Barons is not done with her, he wants the rumored gold and he knows Gabrielle knows where it is! So he kidnaps her! Of course, Gabrielle outsmarts him and gets a message to her husand who comes to save her.
This was a really good book to read but hard to write about, there were so many twists and turns, it really kept my attention. I really liked the characters and rooted for them through the whole book. If Ms. Garwood's books all have such terrific characters and sexy Highlanders to boot, I think she has a new fan!
I'm not sure about the title of the book, I don't know what it had to do with the story. It might be the sound Colm's sword makes before it strikes down his enemies.
This was actually a post I did on my other blog back in April but I thought it was appropriate to post it here...
Okay, so I'm always searching for something to read. I search the internet sites I like for reader recommendations. Several sites mentioned this Carpathian series (it's 20 books - yay!). Well, I started reading them and wow. Kinda disappointed. They are like vampires but not. When they go bad they become vampires, but not undead. Anyhoo, I'm up to book 3 (I'm so disappointed I keep reading them - yeah, I have issues) and the vampire kidnaps the "independent young heroine" and brings her to a cave. "Where are we?" she asks. "In my lair," is his reply. I mean, please. Who says "this is my lair"? Honestly. Then he proceeds to chain her to the wall. Where are all these caves with convenient chains attached to the walls? Maybe here in Louisiana the water table makes the cave walls to weak to support chains so if you kidnap someone and bring them to your lair you have to just tie them with rope and put them in a corner (technically not a corner since caves are not square - okay put them in a crevice?). In all of the photos of caves I looked at, not one set of chains....hmmmmm.... Oh yeah, my point is....I'm going to call either my house or my bedroom my lair. I can't decide which.
*Update: I never did finish that 3rd book. I dont' know if it's just me or if I'm reading the wrong series because I know Ms. Feehan has a huge fanbase. Maybe I'll try them again later...keep them on the back burner so to speak.

Sascha Duncan is a Psy - a race sort of like humans with no emotion. Lucas Hunter is a changling - part human, part panther. The Psy and Changelings are working togther on a joint venture that will be very lucrative for both parties. Sascha thinks she has been slowly going insane, Psy aren't supposed to have feelings and she does. After meeting Lucas her feelings and craving for touch increase - she is having more and more difficulty sheilding these thoughts and desires from other Psy. If it is discovered, they will destroy her mind and kill her. Lucas, the Alpha for his panther pack, cannot get Sascha off his mind; he's determined to have her.
As they work together, Sascha decides she can work through her thoughts and emotions about Lucas through dreaming; she doesn't realize she is transporting her dreams and he's having them too - raw, lusty dreams where she can let herself so whatever she wants!
Lucas is trying to get to know her better, using any opportunity to touch her and talk to her. Slowly she warms to him and he realizes she's his mate. Then, a female from a local pack of wolf changelings goes missing and there is evidence it's the same serieal killer the jaguar pack has been searching for that tortured and killed one of their own - they have evidence it's a Psy doing the killing.
Can they trust Sascha to help them? Will she be able to help without getting herself executed by the Psy? Can she agree to a mating bond with a Changeling?
I really enjoyed this book. I think one of the reasons I was hesitant to read it was for some reason I thought it was going to be a sci/fi-type story, or set on another planet or something. It was set in the future, but I can live with that! The bit of it that was sort of sci/fi was written so well it was easy to imagine. She wove great backgrounds for both characters and the social dynamics were interesting, they showed very well why the hero and heroine are they way they are. I liked both Lucas and Sascha and how their relationship progressed slowly. Sometimes you get a book where the heroine says "no, no, no...ok, yes" very abrubtly and unbelieveably. Ms. Singh writes it so that you see the thought process and emotional journey Sascha takes to reach her potential. Lucas' patience while he waited for her made me fall in love with him. AND, he has a lair (more on my love of lairs later)!
Now, to get my hands on Book 2!!!

Wicked deeds on a Winter's Night is the story of Bowen, the werewolf competitor from No Rest for the Wicked, and Mari, a witch prodigy. They are both competitors in the race, and end up at the same cave after one of the goals. There is attraction between them that they both deny. Bowen denies it because he wants the prize, the key to go back in time, so he can save his mate who died centuries ago while running from him, and Mari denies it because she is young and unsure.
Bowen grabs the goal and seals Mari, along with 5 other competitors, in a cave. Unbeknownst to him, there are also ancient incubi in the cave who attack Mari. As he was doing that, she hit him with a spell to make him mortal. Bowen makes it to the final round but he is severly injured and ends up trapped for weeks, and spends a lot of that time thinking conflicting thoughts about his lost mate and Mari; he thinks she put a love spell on him. When he is rescued, he learns Mari is still trapped and her witch family is going to start a supernatural war if she is not returned; Bowen is the only one who knows where she is. He goes back for her to ask her to remove the spells, but she is pretty sure she didn't put a love spell on him. He decides maybe she could be his mate, and asks for a chance to prove it to her. Mari doesn't want to, she's pretty angry at him, but the circumstances surrounding her returning to her family throw them together and she starts to fall for him. Meanwhile, her powers are growing. After she is returned home, his first mate returns to him and he must make a choice between them. At the same time Mari is attacked and Bowen is the only one who can help her....
Another good book; I am enjoying the series and can't wait to see what's next!!!
Kaderin joins a "supernatural Amazing Race" competition, which she's won the last dozen or so times she's competed (it takes place every 250 years). This year the prize is a key to go back in time; she plans to use it to bring her sisters back. Sebastian knows she's his mate and wants to be near her, so he joins with the intention of helping her. She pushes him away every chance she gets, but he is persistent. She is neck-in-neck in the competition with a werewolf, and he's a brutal competitor, desperate for the prize. As Sebastian follows her, helping and sometimes protecting, she can no longer deny the attraction between them but she knows her family will not approve of a vampire mate. Ultimately she must put her trust in him, not only for her own survival but that of her sisters as well.
I hope the rest of the series is this good!

Lord Dain is a rake who had a rough childhood (mother abandoned him and ran off with another man, father couldn't bear to look at him and sent him off to boarding school where he was teased mercilessly) and as an adult drinks, gambles, and womanizes. He meets the sister of a friend, who is trying to get her brother away from Lord Dain's bad influences. There is some attraction between them that they both deny. Then, they finally act on their feelings and are discovered. He thinks it's a set-up by her to blackmail him for money, while she thinks he means to ruin her reputation as a lady. She retaliates by shooting him!!! Through a series of legal maneuvers, she is able to sue him for ruining her reputation, so he decides if he's going to have to pay her he might as well get his money's worth and tells her she must marry him or get nothing at all. She calls his bluff and they are married. There are several more surprises after the wedding, as at that point they both barely tolerate each other. A former flame, an illegitemate child, traiterous friends, this book's got it all! Ms. Chase wraps up the ending in a nice, tidy bow. A very good read.
One of the things I liked about this book is that it didn't end at the wedding. I enjoyed watching them grow to care for each other and support each other. Apparently I'm a sucker for a romance that starts off with the hero and heroine detesting each other. (Come on, the first time I laid eyes on my husband and his friends I told my friend we needed to avoid them at all costs!! 17 years later I'm glad we didn't!)

In Rogue, Faythe's story continues. She is out with Marc, learning how to be an Enforcer (sort of were-cat self-police) and several strays end up dead. This leads her on a search for the killer and a character from the first book reappears - with a surprise for Faythe. Faythe and Marc's relationship hits a few snags in this book.
In Pride, Faythe is facing a tribunal-type hearing regarding her actions in book 2. She is facing the possibility of being de-clawed or execution. During the trial, a bruin (were-bear) barges in complianing about the cats bothering him. The only problem is that it's not the cats there for the hearing - there is a renegade group of strays causing trouble and humans go missing. Then a tabby lands on their doorstep, except that she doesn't know how she came to be a were-cat. Faythe spends time helping her adjust while also dealing with the tribunal, who decide to spare Faythe's life if Marc will leave the pride. Then one of the other Alphas challenges Faythe's father for control of the Alpha council.
Prey, the fourth book in her six book series picks up about two months after Pride left off. Marc is living in the "free zone" (not pride land) and Faythe and some fellow enforcers are escorting another were-cat to a trial so Faythe is able to stop and visit Marc. While there they are ambushed by an unprecedented group of strays working together to attack their group. They manage to escape and drop the were-cat at her trial and Faythe returns home. Shortly after that she receives a call that Marc is missing and presumed dead. They rush to search for him, getting assistance from a stray who has befriended Marc since he's been in the free-zone. While this is going on, they are having problems with the rescued tabby from book 3 (she won't shift to cat form and is getting very sick because of it) and the council tries to steal her through a sneak attack that has disasterous results. While searching for Marc, Faythe and her group discover someone is tagging stray were-cats with a homing device and they are trying to see how all that fits in with the kidnapping and attempted takeover of the council, AND Faythe makes a bad decision in a fit of alcohol-fueled grief.
This book had me hanging on the edge of my seat. I "OMG'd", "Oh no'd", cried, and cheered. March 2010 cannot get here fast enough - I need to know what happens next!
Wednesday, July 1, 2009
Prey is the 4th book in Rachel Vincent's Shifter series. Faythe is a were-cat who has been having a hard time accepting her responsibilities to her pride and throughout the series I've enjoyed watching her grow and learn about herself and her family (and Marc - see my fictional boyfriend list at right). I loved the first three and can't wait to see what happens next.
So, I stroll in and ask at the desk if my copy is in. No, it's not in and they don't have me down as reserving a copy. It came out today and they haven't unloaded their trucks yet. Damn! Well, her site said many places have put her book out early (maybe because she's not as famous? Dunno.) so I go into the back to check the SciFi/Paranormal section. Nothing. I'm really disappointed and am thinking about trying another B&N and as I'm walking down the Romance aisle - THERE IT IS!!!!! It was already on the shelf, in Romance??!! Whatev. I've got it!!!!!
Don't call me tonight.
