Seduction in Death

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! Hope youīve found time amid all the school shopping to get in a little reading. Or a lot of reading, depending on how fast you go through books.

My own youngest starts kindergarten this year, which means Iīm going to have a half a day completely to myself. While Iīm going to miss having him here (and try to ignore the evidence that my baby is fast growing up), I have to admit that having a couple hours a day all to myself is going to be a new joy for me, once I get used to the idea. And for those of you in the same boat, here are three new romances to get you started.

First up is Laura Renkenīs Night Shadow, the latest in Joveīs Seduction line. This time out you get Talonīs brother Marcus, who was presumed dead in her last book. Talon goes from prisoner to captain in a few short minutes when Liandra strikes a deal with him. While I liked Marcus just fine, Liandra wasnīt my favorite heroine. Her behavior, especially in the second half of the book, didnīt strike me as particularly strong, which is generally how I like my heroines. This one wasnīt a keeper for me, but it was a pleasant enough way to while away an afternoon, so Iīm giving it three of Cupidīs five arrows.

Next is Bertrice Smallīs Love for All Time (NAL), a favorite from her Skye OīMalley series and a re-release. Aidan St. Michael and Conn OīMalley are paired up this time out. Youīll get to see Skye and some of the other well-loved family members, and you get to watch Aidan struggle through her trials after being abducted, and Connīs fight to bring his wife home. As usual for Ms. Small, this one is very sexy, so keep a fan and a cool drink handy while youīre reading this one. If you are new to Ms. Smallīs books, you should start this series at the beginning, with "Skye OīMalley." If you check in my archives in the next few days, Iīll have a complete list of all Ms. Smallīs books there, and you can find all of the books in this series. This one gets four arrows.

Finally, we come to J. D. Robbīs latest, Seduction in Death (Berkley). As a reader, I absolutely adore Ms. Robertsī books, because they just get better and better. As a writer, I want to hate her because sheīs so prolific and her books just get better and better, but I just canīt. Eve is after another killer, one this time whose m.o. is very troubling--he killed his date after meeting her in cyberspace. And things just get worse from there, tangling up the case in ever more confusing knots. Of course Eve will unravel them all and get her man. There were parts of this one that made me laugh out loud, and the attraction between Eve and Roarke just gets hotter. Iīm giving this one four and a half arrows. Canīt wait for the next one!
