February books read

Okay, didn't read as many books in February as January, but still quite a few. Here they are:

Hearts Are Wild by Cheyenne McCray, Nelissa Donovan, and Patrice Michelle. It's a nice contemporary western anthology from EC. Nothing special, but it was still enjoyable to read.

Silk Confessions by Joanne Rock. This was a good Blaze. Hot and sexy, though I had some problems with how quickly the H/h got together. Review here.

Devlin's Wicked Wish by Alexis Hart. 3 out of 5 stars. Nothing special, it's a time travel short.

Eyes of the Leopard 2: Vengeance by Isabella Jordan. A shapeshifting short story from Changeling Press. It was okay, but didn't really grab me.

Desiree by Roberta Gellis. My favorite historical this year. The love story is sweet and the historical accuracy really brings you into the story. Review here.

Spellbound by Rebecca York. A part of Intrigue's Eclipse series, it's a nice gothic. It didn't grab me as much as I'd hoped, but it wasn't a bad read. Review here.

On The Loose by Shannon Hollis. I really enjoyed this one. Review here.

Darla's Valentine by Samantha Winston. Laugh out loud funny. I've been enjoying some of her older romantic comedies from Ellora's Cave. The Phallus from Dallas is another funny one.

Once Bitten by Autumn Dawn. A SF short story from New Concepts Publishing. I've always liked Autumn Dawn and this was no exception. 4/5 stars

The Protector by Gennita Low. I blogged about this one earlier. 4 out of 5 stars

The Man of Bronze by Kenneth Robeson. Ah....the first time we meet Doc Savage. I love these books.

The Empress' New Clothes by Jaid Black. It was okay, nothing spectacular. From Ellora's Cave.

Sit, Stay, Slay by Linda O. Johnston. I really loved this cute mystery. I can't wait for any sequels that come out in the future.

Survivor in Death by J.D. Robb. Hell, I cried in parts. Love this series.

Land of Terror by Kenneth Robeson. Yet another Doc Savage book. Yum. Over the top, but these are the epitome of guilty pleasure.

At Her Service by Shari Anton. 3 stars. Maybe lower depending on my mood. After reading Desiree, this book paled in comparison. I want my time back.

3 Brides For 3 Bad Boys by Lucy Monroe. Lucy's one of my fave authors, even though she writes heroes who I want to slap upside the head. But I still like her. Go figure. *g* I enjoyed this collection of novellas.

One Way Out by Michele Albert. I liked this one. I'll be trying to find her backlist now. And I like reading her blog.

Going to Extremes by Dawn Atkins. Review pending, but I liked the book. Made me think.

Okay, that's what I've read for February. I think I did miss another Doc Savage book, but oh well. I'm not perfect. Now, I've been writing down when I finish the book, not when I start them. Sometimes I'll start a book and then put it down for something else, not getting back to it for awhile.

I'm currently waiting for Candace Schuler's new Blaze to be released. I read Goodtime Girl and thought it was the best Blaze I've ever read. I have also enjoyed a couple of Dawn Atkins' Blaze books. Michele Albert is one of my favorite contemporary authors. I have One Way Out in my TBR pile. I even liked her when she was Michele Jerrott. ;-) So much to read, so little time. Jordan

I really need to find Goodtime Girl. I've heard SO many great things about it. I hope I'll get Candace's book for review at Cata, but if I don't, I'm definitely buying it.

Now I'm reading Tiger Eye by Marjorie Liu. I've got some reviews to write, but I'm so burned out. So far, this is a fab book.
