Need a few more rakes and rogues in your life?

Of course the first rakes and rogues that come to my mind are in Johanna Lindsey’s, Mallory-Anderson Family Saga Series. Ten books in all, each one better than the last they are all must reads! My favorite is Gentle Rogue.  Which one is yours?

 

1. Love Only Once (1985)
2. Tender Rebel (1988)
3. Gentle Rogue (1990)
4. The Magic of You (1993)
5. Say You Love Me (1996)

Are the men in Houston as hot and steamy as the weather?

I love to read books that are set in locations where I have lived. I was noticing how many romance novels are set in Texas. Then to narrow it down a little closer to home, right here in Houston. Houston men appear in quite a few romance novels. Coming from all walks of life, rich oil men, attorneys, FBI agents, these Texas men are steaming up the pages.  Who are your favorite men from Houston?

Susan Mallery - My Newest Treasure

I know you are not supposed to judge a book by its cover but I do! If we weren’t supposed to why would publishers spend so much time, effort and money on making them look like eye candy?  I have found a lot of really great authors this way. My newest treasure is Susan Mallery. I just finished Irresistible, the cover caught my eye.
