I’ve had some decent reading since the first of the year. I’ve only read 8 books but that’s not bad for 5 1/2 weeks (at least for me it’s not).
I’ve been reading romantica/ultimate books lately. Hubby has been busy taking a class and studying all evening for the last couple weeks so I’ve not gotten nearly enough **attention** as I’d like. I think I’m trying to take solace in the books but it’s really only making matters worse. His test is this Friday and then he’s done so he’ll be able to give me LOTS of “attention.” Woo-hoo!
The Jude Deveraux discussiuon group (http://bbs.simonsays.com/postlist.php?Cat=0&Board=UBB9) is having a chat about her book The Raider. If you’ve never read this book I highly recommend it. Here’s the back blurb:
“Jude Deveraux continues her beloved Montgomery saga in America with this dramatic, passion-filled tale of rebellion and love — a breathtaking adventure to be savored all over again — or discovered for the first time!
In colonial New England, the British are hunting a fearless, masked patriot whose daring foils them at every turn. He’s known simply as the Raider. Jessica Taggert, a proud-tempered beauty, thrills to the Raider’s scorching midnight embrace, but despises Alexander Montgomery, the drunken town buffoon. In truth, the cleverly disguised Montgomery lives two lives…and only his triumph over the hated Redcoats will free him, at last, to know the full pleasure of Jessica’s love. ”
This is classic, historical romance reading at it’s best. A secret identity, a masked heart-throb, danger, intrigue – sigh. It just doesn’t get much better than this.
How’s everyone else’s reading coming? Read anything good lately?
I just picked up Jennifer Crusie’s Manhunting the other night but haven’t started reading it yet. Anyone else read it? Thoughts?
