Christmas event, Linda McLaughlin Regency Cinderella

This one's for the Regency Romance lovers. Author Linda McLaughlin's guest post is now up. You can see it here:

There's a giveaway involved too (and of course, Night Mistress Emcee sheenanigans. ;)) So do drop by.

What are you reading?

Slightly late, of course, you know me. :)Here's another edition of another addition of What are you reading Monday. Well here's what I'm reading:

In a holiday mood (OMG, can you believe Christmas in next Sunday?), I'm reading Paty Jager's historical romance short, Christmas Redemption.

Here's the blurb for this one:

Van Donovan returns to Pleasant Valley, Oregon where twelve years earlier as a boy of fifteen he left in handcuffs after standing guard for a bank robbery. He's learned a trade and excelled at it and is ready to prove to his father and the town he can amount to something.

Upon his return he learns the fate of the daughter of an innocent man who died in the robbery crossfire. To make amends he takes her out of the saloon and gives her a job, not realizing she'd been squatting in the very building he'd purchased for his business.

Can two battered hearts find solace or will the past continue to haunt their lives?

It's currently available free (Until January 1st) at Smashwords and Amazon for Kindle.

I've also been reading Joanne Rock's Under Wraps.

The book blurb reads:

Marnie Wainwright started her fantasy escapes travel agency, Lose Yourself… to spice up boring dialing routines for others. But when she discovers she’s the subject of a deliciously hot private investigator’s surveillance, she suddenly starts living her own wildest fantasies. After all, what better gift could she get than a chance to spend the holidays at a quaint Adirondack Inn—which just happens to offer naughty playtime for sensually adventurous couples—with her sexy PI?

Jake Brennan should keep his hands off Marnie. But she’s delectable… irresistible! And the longer he keeps his desire under wraps, the more he wants her.

If only she wasn’t his number one suspect…

Lose Yourself… what you find might change your life.

It's available for Amazon's Kindle, or Nook, if you'd like to check it out.

This one actually came out last Christmas, and I had hoped to get to it, but longtime readers remember what a downer last Christmas was for me here. I really am enjoying it (Under Wraps) though. What can I say? I just like Ms. Rock's voice and style. *nods* I think romance fans'll like this one. Full review forthcoming.

So what are you reading, today?

Joanne Rock’s Highland Twelfth Night festivities

(Testing. I think I fixed the blogger problem. In the meantime, if you missed it on the new blog, enjoy this book review)

Summoned For Seduction
by Joanne Rock
Publisher: Harlequin

(My review copy was purchased from the Harlequin Website)

In romance author Joanne Rock’s release for Harlequin Historicals Undone, Summoned for Seduction she presents Helene MacKail whose Twelfth Night fun at Domhnaill Keep is ruined by the fact that her father wishes her to marry a particularly fiendish highland lord, Léod mac Ruadhán, about whom vicious rumors swirl. It is said Léod caused his first wife’s death, after all. She does what any sane woman would do: She lies to Léod and hides out in her bedroom during the festivities. Some kind courtier takes it upon himself to offer her the dinner she missed, in Lady Cristiana’s brewhouse, and hungry, she can’t help but accept anonymous invitation. How could she expect what intrigue, seduction, and ultimately fate, awaits her?

What happens? Well, you’ll have to read to find out. As prequel to Joanne Rock’s January 2011 Harlequin Historical novel, In The Laird’s Bed, this short, 47 page Historical Undone novella brings the intrigue and some could say threat, as well as passion of an arranged Medieval betrothal to life. Though, in my opinion it may be a little too early to start thinking about Christmas, this book will definitely get you in the mood, I think. I enjoyed it, anyway. :) If you'd like to try it out, Summoned for Seduction is available for kindle and other e-readers from the Harlequin website, or  via

guest posts alert

Just thought I'd let y'all know, Laurie at Bitten by Paranormal Romance is hosting Harlequin Historicals author Marguerite Kaye, today. She'll be giving away a copy of her new book, so don't miss that. You can see it here:

WW28: Jezebel's Wish

Sorry I'm late on it another Wicked Wednesday already? Well, here's my pick for the week's WW28,

From Jezebel's Wish by AJ Nuest


The next thing she knew she was waking up at her mother’s house in Wisconsin, the banging noise of an irritated horse jolting her from her dreams.

Hmm....sounds like she's in for quite a day, doesn't it?

Here's a bit about the book from Good Reads:

Haunted by nightmares, tormented by guilt, Jezebel came to Redemption Ranch to escape the past-except now she's stuck in the middle of nowhere with no redemption in sight. When her mother pushes her into riding lessons with local veterinarian Matthias Saunders, Jezebel balks. Sure, the doctor is gorgeous, but he's completely obnoxious and knows how to push every one of her buttons.

Only her deep connection with The Reverend, a gentle stallion who guards her darkest secrets, has her agreeing to spend any more time with Dr. Saunders. Caring for the stallion is the first bright spot in her life in months, and if being around the horse means she has to deal with Matthias Saunders, then so be it. Surely a city girl like her can handle one country vet-even one with disturbing blue eyes. Can't she?

Want to read more? You can find out more on AJ's site: AJ's Tattered Pages. The book is available in paperback and for the Nook. I hope you enjoy it! :)


There are a couple giveaways going on around the blogosphere. Two I thought you might be interested:

Smexy Books is giving away a Kindle Fire, with some very hot Guess Who games.

and Caroline Clemmons, in a guest post here, is talking about Christmas shopping and giving away a copy of Home Sweet Texas Home, over here on Sky Purlington's blog. Good luck to all who try for them!
