library take

I really like the whole 'put it on hold using the internet and get an email when it's ready' thing at my library. In this case, the book I snagged was Lisa Kleypas' Seduce Me at Sunrise. Sure it's a hard-cover, large-print edition, but so what? I didn't have to pay for it. heh. I am looking forward to this one. Gypsy heros...yum! I hope it is as good as my expectations. At the very least, the cover is delish. lol.

While there, I quickly scanned the shelves for a few more books to take home and ended up with The Temptation a medieval by Claudia Dain and Confessions at Midnight by Jacquie D'Allessandro. I am trying to remember if I've ever read any Claudia Dain. I don't think so. I do like a well-written medieval, so again...hopeful but cautious. I already sped through the D'Allessandro book this morning. It was cute and hot and a very easy read. A widow who is not only NOT a virgin but who loved her late husband and misses teh sex. How refreshing. *g* I'd recommend it for a low-angst comfort read.

And finally, a pictorial response to my pahtnah's recent James Bond post. hey, lb, here's lookin' at you kid.

Oooh, that D'Allesandro book sounds good (a non-virgin widow how loved her husband and misses teh sex? I'm so there!). And even better? I have it in my TBR! Yipppeeee!

Can't you just tell how gorgeous that physique is underneath that tux shirt?

He's just delicious. And always slightly dour, so he smolders.

lb, I knew you would appreciate the photographic goodness. feel free to caption as planned. heh.

wendy, I hope you like the book. I found it quite refreshing to have a widow heroine without sex hangups. Will be interested in your take on it if/when you read it. Fun little book. :)

Kati, I love a guy in a sexy white shirt. makes me wanna rip it off. rawr!

Good luck with Temptation. I tried several times and just couldn't get into it. I do have Seduce Me At Sunrise in my TBR pile. I'll pick Confessions up at PBS. Thanks for the tip!

I'm also reading Seduce me at Sunrise. We'll have to compare notes. Got mine from the library too!

sherry, i think you've jinxed me! lol. I have picked it up several times in the last week and put it down in favor of other tastier morsels. Do try Confessions was a good read.

Kwana, let me know how you found SMAS. I enjoyed it. Yummy gypsy lurve. woot!
