I figure it's that time again to announce what books I have been receiving these last few weeks. As if you really care, but hey... you just might. I had a coupon from Borders for 33% off of one book. I get these every week, but I finally decided to put it to good use. I chose Tortured by Amanda McIntyre. She is one of the authors who will be appearing at the RT Convention in Columbus Ohio. She writes for Harlequin's Spice line, which is a line I really enjoy - hello, Megan Hart - so I thought why not give it a try.
I also am a huge fan of Madeline Hunter. I bought Ravishing in Red, which is her latest release from her new series The Rarest Blooms. Kristie J has a fabulous review already posted here. Last but not least I bought Jennifer Ashley's Pride Mates. It is a new shifter series. Although, it hasn't gotten the greatest reviews, I still want to try it out for myself.
This week my turn finally came up for a few of the books on my wait list. I received the second book in Nora Roberts' Bride Quartet, Bed of Roses and A Matter of Class by Mary Balogh. I didn't have designs on Balogh's book but after reading Hilcia's review, I couldn't resist. Even though it's short, Hilcia says it still delivers.
Next up would be freebies! Whoot. Gotta love those! I received a copy of Truly, Madly by Heather Webber. This book is releasing February 2010 and is a debut novel. I read a review of it a month ago by Kris at The Reading Spot. It sparked my interest and a friend of mine sent me the book. I also had the good fortune to win Viking in Love by Sandra Hill from Book Binge. They had this crazy affair called the "Twelve Days of Christmas" offering contests each day. I was lucky enough to be the winner on one of the days. I love a good Viking book and they are few and far between, so here's to hoping this is a good one.
