Hey guys! I have a couple of reader book updates for you and yes, a few winners too :)
I finished reading Corralled by Lorelei James over the weekend to prepare for her guest interview in August and I have to tell you I think it is one of the most sexually driven erotic romances that she has written...no joke. The direction that the characters and the story took surprised me a few times. I thought I knew which direction the story would take, but then I was wrong...both times, and I liked that about it. I'll have a review for Corralled probably late next week to give you a better picture.
I also read Everything Changes on Monday by Megan Hart. Did you know about this one? It's kind of a companion, or side story to Tempted. It was kind of quietly released and I almost missed it, but I was preparing for the Naked interview (not me naked, the book Naked) and found out about it on Megan's website....so I went to Harlequin and bought it. Tempted was the first Megan Hart book that I read, so when I found out that Alex's side of the story from Tempted was released as a Harlequin Spice briefs novella this month I knew I had to read it...not only to prepare for Megan being a guest in Aug for Naked, but because....it's Alex! If you haven't read Tempted yet (which is told from the heroine Anne's perspective) then I wouldn't recommend reading Everything Changes yet because it's meant as a companion to Tempted and I think you would be lost if you hadn't read Tempted first. I haven't had the chance to read Naked yet, but after reading his perspective of what happened within Tempted in Everything Changes I can't wait to get my booklover hands on it (let's face it though, I've loved every Megan Hart novel I've read). If you haven't read Tempted yet, I recommend it (Broken is still my fav though). Then if you'd like to learn more about Alex before Naked comes out in a few weeks, then I think you should download Everything Changes (currently it's only an ebook).
I think I'm done rambling now :) Ready to find out who the two lucky winners of Mary Wine's To Conquer a Highlander are?
