WINNER!!! And The Joys of Re-reading

Sorry for not announcing the winner of the Lori Foster giveaway! Bdulin12 you are the winner! Please email me your address so that I can get the t-shirt out to you and set amazon to ship a book to you on the 26th. Don't forget to come back and tell us what you think about the book! Don't forget I'm giving away MORE books as I get more followers! We're getting close to another giveaway!

I apologize for the lack of posting--my day job is chief toddler wrangler to a 3 year old and 9 month old and as an adjunct professor of writing. Lately, both jobs have been kicking my behind. And I don't know about other readers, but the more stressed I get, the more I tend to re-read keeper shelf books. I just can't handle the disappointment of new reads that don't live up to expectations, and I feel that I'm a bit harsher than usual in my preferences. I do, however, have some great books in store for you. Tomorrow's Book of the Week is a debut that met all my picky expectations and then some and that you will LOVE. Next week, I'm continuing my status as the Lorelei James Fan Blog as well as bringing you a diverse selection of new releases.

What do you re-read when you are too stressed out to read anything new? In the last two weeks, I have re-read:
  • The Naked Edge by Pamela Clare. I needed to see a kickass heroine taking charge of her destiny. And also Gabe. Okay. Mainly Gabe.
  • Cowgirl Up and Ride by Lorelei James. This is probably my favorite of the Rough Riders, and I opened it up to find a random piece of McKay trivia and ended up re-reading from start to finish.
  • Hot Pursuit by Suzanne Brockmann. I'm still working on my Breaking the Rules review, and I went back to this one to revisit Dan and Jenn one more time. Love Jenn.
  • Raising Kane by Lorelei James. We shall not discuss the number of Lorelei James books I have devoured in the last month. Some day scientists will discover exactly how she manages to bottle happy endorphins and cowboy pheromones within the printed page. Pretty nifty trick for e-books especially.
I've still managed to read some new stuff too, so stay tuned. Feel free to share your favorite books to re-read!


  1. Looking into the Lorelei James books.

  2. Please... let's discuss how many LJ books you've read in the last month! HAHA!! :) I'm disappointed in you, btw. I thought we had already discussed me being the default winner of the LF giveaway?? :) J/K! Congrats to the winner!

  3. Oh Paty you will love Lorelei James, but have a large glass of ice water handy :) Romantica Cowboys are selling well right now :P HINT :P
