Last 11 Books!

I was really good yesterday and stayed away from all the blogs in order to do some major housecleaning. Today, I have been checking out my favorite blogs. Ms. M posted about Mia's Men a couple of days ago and how she was contributing to this story being created by several bloggers following Cheryl Brooks Erotic Blogspot. Of course I went over and checked it out. Today I went back and read the recent installments. I have to say that I can't wait to read what these creative people are going to come up with and will probably break the promise I made to myself to stay off my computer and get some reading done. Any how I decided to check out some more of Ms. M's favorite blogs. I ran across Racy Romance Reviews. Jessica, and I do hope that I have the right name, recently posted about the last 11 books she purchased and why. She was also running a contest for anyone who posted about the last five books that they purchased and why. I think this is really neat idea, it not only gives insight into how we find the books we love by a little about ourselves for those that read between the lines. I am too late for the contest, but that matters not, I am still going to participate in this little activity, using her rules: last 5 romance novels you bought (no ARCs or freebies) and why you bought them, however I will attempt to post about the last 11 books I purchased.

In NO particular order, here is my list:

1. Take A Stranger No More by Beth Kery (Kindle)
Reason: I just received a Kindle for Mother's day, why this book... a good way to get my Beth Kery fix while waiting on my copy of Daring Time to arrive.

2. The Commander's Desire by Jennette Green (Kindle)
Reason: Wanted another book for my Kindle, why this book... I read about it here on Kat's blog.

3. Highlander Ever After by Jennifer Ashley (Kindle)
Reason: Night Owl Romance was running a virtual signing on May 11 for Jennifer Ashley, and I love my Highlanders.

4. Vexing The Viscount by Emily Bryan
Reason: Have heard really good things about this book.

5. Some Like It Wild by Teresa Medeiros
Reason: The hero is the brother of the heroine in Some Like it Wicked

6. Lover Avenged by JR Ward
Reason: Do I really need to explain?... I have joined the band wagon and am very addicted to the Brotherhood.

7. Raine by Elizabeth Amber
Reason: The second in the Lords of Satyr series.

8. Border Moonlight by Amanda Scott
Reason: The cover caught my eye.

9. Devil of the Highlands by Lynsay Sands
Reason: It is a Highlander book, and I needed a book that took place in Scotland for a challenge.

10. Into the Flame by Christina Dodd
Reason: I needed the fourth book in the Shape shifter series, so that eventually I can start reading it.

11. To Beguile a Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt
Reason: Yes it is the third book in Hoyts Four Soldiers series, but the cover is so pretty!!
