Summer Romance

Welcome back! I hope you´ve all been reading. Due to real life this week, I didn´t get as much reading done as I´d hoped. But this week will be much better for it, and I´m looking forward to digging into the books waiting for me. And there are so many, I don´t know how I´ll choose.

How do you decide when you´ve got more than one book waiting to be read? Mood? Favorite author? Luck of the draw? Something else? And, though a real summer romance has to end, the reading enjoyment we get from our romances never has to stop. Good thing!

What are some of your favorite "summer romance" romances? I never realized until this week how many of them there are, and so many here on my own bookshelves. Hm...A number of the recent ones I´ve read are Harlequin Temptations, usually with the heroine deciding she´s going to make the most of her time with the hero, even if she believes he doesn´t want anything more permanent than a summer fling. But I do have some others, older and longer in length than the Temptations. Stop by the forum this week and let me know some of your favorite summer romances.

This week, I´ve read Splendid You
Splendid You
by Lynn Bailey (Jove Magical Love, available now). Julia Hanson is delighted that she will finally have the chance to meet her kindred spirit in all things Egypt, Dr. Simon Archer. He´s brought the contents of the tomb of Princess An-ket back home with him and invited Julia to come visit in London during the summer. Except that Julia´s not exactly what he was expecting. And An-ket´s spirit escapes, helping and upsetting the lives of those she comes in contact with. Simon, though, is a man of science, and he doesn´t believe Julia´s story of meeting An-ket in the museum, or in the talents of the man called Dr. Mystery. But strange things are afoot, things he can´t ignore. While I enjoyed this story, I didn´t like it quite as much as Ms. Bailey´s last, "Magic by Daylight". However, this one still earns three and a half of Cupid´s five arrows. Let me know what you think of it.

Until you come again, why don´t you stop in the romance books forum. We have some really good discussions going on right now, and you can feel free to add your own thoughts on any of the current topics or start your own. You can also find instructions there on signing up for our newsletter, or you can email me to be added to the mailing list. Happy reading!
