Lazy Day Escape: Flirting with Intent by Kelly Hunter

Lazy Day Escape: Flirting with Intent by Kelly Hunter

One of my personal reading habits is to alternate my thrillers with romance novels. It changes the tempo of my reading and helps me keep all the characters separated from each other. Plus, those are my two favorite genres, so this method ensures I get to read a lot of both of them.

In between reading Vince Flynn’s The Last Man and Michael Palmer’s Political Suicide, I read Kelly Hunter’s Flirting with Intent.

Weekend Romance: What I Did For Love by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Weekend Romance: What I Did For Love by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a pretty stressful week full of headache inducing tech glitches. My absolute favorite way to de-stress is with a good book, which I’m sure you’ve figured out by now.

A great romantic comedy can take your mind off the real world and give you several hours of relaxation. Plus, there are all kinds of studies out there written by smart people showing that the healthy benefits of humor and laughing last for hours and hours. Where do I sign up?

Book Review: In Total Surrender by Anne Mallory

Book Review: In Total Surrender by Anne Mallory

Most of the time, when reading romance novels, we read most of the story from the heroine’s perspective. In Total Surrender started from our hero’s perspective and stayed with him for quite a while. It was a nice change for me and Andreas makes a great hero. He’s rough around the edges and hides his true self from others, but when reading the story from his perspective, we get unlimited access to the “real” Andreas, and he’s quite wonderful, in a bad boy sort of way.

Do you ever read romances where the heroine is described as smart or clever and then she proceeds to make the most ridiculous decisions which result in the need for rescuing? Phoebe isn’t like that at all. In fact, I do believe she is the one doing the rescuing in this romance.

Lazy Day E-Scape: The Bride Wore Scarlet by Liz Carlyle

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend!

It was rainy in Chicago on Sunday, which was the only excuse I needed to curl up on the couch and spend the afternoon lost in a book. I had trouble finding the right one for my mood, but finally settled on The Bride Wore Scarlet by Liz Carlyle.

From the back of the book:
Passion and secrets simmer behind the elegant fa├žade of Victorian London in another deliciously intriguing novel featuring the mysterious men of the St. James Society…

Weekend Romance: Save As Draft by Cavanaugh Lee

Weekend Romance: Save As Draft by Cavanaugh Lee

I love to read romance novels over the weekend and Save As Draft by Cavanaugh Lee is a perfect Lazy Day E-Scape.

Written in emails, texts, twitter and facebook updates, Save As Draft is not your usual romance novel, but it is oh so fun!

I often find myself saving drafts of emails and never sending them (my drafts folder currently has over 100 emails in it, just begging for attention), or editing them so severely that by the time I do send them, they don’t resemble the original message at all, so the concept here is familiar to me. Throw in a little love triangle…
