Today’s post is our first ever guest post at Book Thingo, written by Keira, who runs Love Romance Passion, a romance book review blog for readers by readers. She’s been reading romance since she was a teenager and began blogging about romance so she could share her passion for her favourite genre. She loves reading paranormal, Regency, historical America, and highlander most of all, and completely adores blind and wounded heroes.
Kat asked me to tell her about my top 10 books from September (so far anyway) to go with the Books Alive 2009 Reading Challenge. These books are not all romance—some are young adult—but they’re all new to me.
Listening Library and Random House are my heroes. Love Nathaniel Parker’s voice. He’s so amazing. The story fairly leaps out of the speakers. Book 5 shows a hint of future romance as Artemis hits puberty, but it’s not a main feature of the series at all.
Very funny contemporary Western romance. I loved the phrases and sayings best of all. The heroine is a riot!
7. Never Resist Temptation by Miranda Neville (excerpt)
She’s a French/English aristocrat who loves to cook and is on the run from the law for a crime she didn’t commit. Hero wants to use her in his plot for revenge only to find out that he can’t.
8. Simple Jess by Pamela Morsi
This was recommended to me after I read Courting Miss Hattie (which is from August or it’d be here on this list.) It’s about a simple-minded hero and a widow finding love in historic America. Review coming up soon at Love Romance Passion.
Another book whose review will be out soon. One of the best Harlequin Historicals I’ve read. Picked it up and couldn’t stop reading!
10. Always a Scoundrel by Suzanne Enoch
Very sweet romance with a pretty freaky bad guy. The heroine’s brother owes a fortune to the bad guy. The bad guy’s protégé finds out and wants to see the woman that could make the man willingly enter into matrimony. Hero finds heroine too innocent and pure to end up like that and works with her to find a way to help her escape.
So there you are—my current top 10, with half a month left to go basically.
Tell me what books have made it into your favourites this month so I have some more goodies to go find and read!
