Susan Meier´s New Release
First up is Lori Foster´s
Wild (Jove). I adore her books, because they´re always sexy, with heroes to die for, and this one is no exception. Zane, the last of the Winston brothers, gets his turn this time out. Zane´s got a very sexy gypsy who´s blatant about what she wants from him, and he decides to give her what she wants. Except that Tamara Tremayne turns out not to be exactly his idea of a gypsy. Not that that stops the way he´s beginning to feel about her, but then, when strange things start happening, he knows someone´s got to look out for her. Ms. Foster´s books can help you heat up during the cold, dark days of winter, and her characters are always well-written. I´m giving this one four of Cupid´s five arrows. I hope to see cousin Joe´s story soon!
Next up is Jennifer Malin´s
Eternally Yours (Jove´s Love Letters). Lara Peale has just purchased an old house belonging to a poet she´d adored. It would be even better if his ghost wasn´t haunting her now. Mark Vereker, a descendant of the poet, isn´t as thrilled by his ancestor´s writing, but he is interested in Lara. Now if she could figure out if Mark was still involved with Karen, she might be just as interested in him. Together, though, they work toward figuring out who the recipient of some of the poet´s love letters was, and maybe find out if they´re really falling for each other, or just under the influence of a centuries-old ghost. This one didn´t work very well for me, not for any particular reason, but that Lara and Mark´s passion isn´t very, um, passionate? I´m giving this one just two arrows.
Finally, we come to Susan Meier´s latest, "The Boss´s Urgent Proposal" (Silhouette Romance). Susan is another favorite, because you can count on her for realistic characters with true-to-life conflicts. This time out is no different. Olivia Brady´s been in love with her boss Josh Nicholson for years, despite the fact that he barely knows she´s alive. Finally, she decides she must go on, without him, in a new place. But Josh doesn´t know what he´ll do without her--a new secretary would never be able to find anything, let alone him, so he convinces her to help him out, just a little before she leaves. Only to find that he can´t let her go. Olivia and Josh are very touching, and both very stubborn people. Hm, stubborn, like many of us when it comes to realizing that it might be time to let go of something we don´t need or can´t use any more? I always look forward to a new Susan Meier book, and this one was no exception. Now I can´t wait for the next. This one gets four and a half arrows.
Until next week, happy reading!
