Romantic Intrigue

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! Our 'big snowstorm' wasn't really, but the boys weren't too disappointed, as they were sledding in the six inches or so we did get. And I got to work my way through some more of my TBR pile, which I added to last week with personal choices. Even if we got an unexpected blizzard, I'd have enough reading material to last me weeks. The tea and hot chocolate might run out first.

And so you all have plenty of reading material for your own bad weather, I have three new books to share with you this time out, beginning with Kat Martin's latest, Bride's Necklace (Mira). Tory Whitting has managed to outwit her stepfather by spiriting her sister and a family heirloom away and posing as a servant. Working for Cordell Easton isn't quite what she expected, and Cord is none too pleased when he discovers their true identities--something which forces him to wed Tory. What a way to start a marriage. And things don't improve much from there, with Tory still witholding a secret and letting her husband and society believe she's involved in an affair. Granted, Cord isn't very trusting--not that she's given him much reason to trust her--but this mess is mostly of Tory's making. If you're looking for a light read, this one will fit the bill nicely. It's earned three and a half of Cupid's five arrows.

Amanda Quick, aka Jayne Ann Krentz, has a new one out now, Wait until Midnight (Jove). Author Caroline Fordyce is shocked when Adam Hardesty shows up at her home, practically accusing her of murder. But the gentleman has good reason, though he does change his mind about Mrs. Fordyce. This is a fun, very light read, even with the suspense plot. Something just right for the gloomy days of winter. Honestly, though, I prefer Ms. Krentz's contemporaries--they're much sexier. Still, this one gets four arrows. And it will tide me over until her next contemporary is released.

Finally, we have Linda Castillo's Depth Perception (Berkley). Nat Jennings has come home to Bellerose, Louisiana. And so has Nick Bastille, after sitting in prison for six years for a crime he didn't commit--six years that included the death of his young son. These two are on a collision course that promises to create heat to rival that in the sultry South. Not only won't the sensual tension keep you riveted, so will the suspense, tinged with just a hint of the paranormal. This one is a real keeper. It's earned four and a half arrows.

Until next time, happy reading!
