Hi Joy!! Thanks for stopping by. I read Sunset Bay and really enjoyed it. It is a bit different from Mallery's other books, but I liked that it was more women's fiction than straight romance. Is this your first Mallery?

Hi Kwana! How about you? How many books did you read?

I like it when we read similar books or when you read books that I've already read LOL :)

The Drake one, is that the first or second book in the series? Can't wait to see what you thought of Queen of the Darkness!!

Keep it up!

Hey Nath, It IS fun, when you get to discuss the books right away! Nightwalker is the first of the series. It is complete urban fantasy, so not much romance. It is an interesting book. I am trying to write my review now for it.

I finally read Christina Dodd's Danger in a Red Dress. Do you still want to do a joint review?

nath said...

Sure for the joint review :) I never turn one down, LOL :)

as for Nightwalker, I read it. I just couldn't remember if that was the title... Cos i know her second book is out, but still haven't picked it up. Not sure I will, hmmmm.
