    I just finished Annika Martin’s Dark Mafia Prince which I enjoyed. Dark erotic romance.

    I just finished reading Anna Campbell’s new novella, Stranded With The Scottish Earl. It was an easy, quick read and I enjoyed it. This is a love at first sight story and takes place over a very short time frame – 3 days. Ewan and Charlotte spend 2 days together after he visits and is stranded by a storm that washes out the bridge. She has vowed never to marry and he has fallen in love with her after learning about her from her father and seeing her portrait. It was a sweet story as Ewan works to convince Charlotte that he loves her and they were meant to be together. Despite the condensed time frame, I could believe in the love.

    I do enjoy Anna Campbell’s books,Tinabelle, so I plan on reading this. I’m glad to know the romance works well within the format as that’s always a concern with novellas.

    ….and I guess not. Once you post, you cannot go back and edit??

    Just finished Dark Mafia Prince & The Hating Game. I liked/loved them both – so different, but so entertaining. Good stuff!

    I’ve been unable type in a long-ish review I wrote or to copy and paste it into the comment box for Singh’s Rock Hard. Any ideas?

    If you can’t cut and paste, it’s probably because the dev team is still ironing out kinks. Check back and see if you can next week. Sorry!

    Dabney…

    “If you can’t cut and paste, it’s probably because the dev team is still ironing out kinks. Check back and see if you can next week. Sorry!”

    Thank you! I figured it was just a glitch in the system.

    I feel like I’ve read so many books lately, particularly ones with REALLY frustrating heroines, that I was absolutely delighted with The Billionaire Bachelor by Jessica Lemmon. I am not particularly into the billionaire craze in the romance world, but this book was a fantastic enemies-to-lovers/modern marriage of convenience blend. The hero was sexy but I think I liked the heroine even more. She was feisty but vulnerable. Definitely recommend this book.

    Forgot one worth mentioning: I also read Sweet Little Lies. I haven’t been the biggest Jill Shalvis fan in the past (I suppose this is an unpopular opinion!) but this one was OK. Not really special. I thought the chemistry with the leads was good and I liked the relationship with the brothers, but some of it annoyed me, like the whole premise of the book with the pay it forward theme. Not sure how to post things to hide spoilers on the new forum so I’ll just say some of the heroine’s actions made me roll my eyes.

    I just read The Black Madonna by Stella Riley and I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed it. It’s a romantic historical novel rather than a straight romance, I suppose, and I loved every page of it. Set in the period leading up to the English Civil War and continuing into the opening years of the war, it’s full of rich period detail and the complex issues of divided and conflicting and ambiguous loyalties. The characters are complex, except maybe for the villain who is just a polished sociopath.
    I couldn’t finish it in an evening—it’s some 600 pages long—but I didn’t get much of anything done until I did. I do love a book that lets me just sink into the story and stay there.
