Yea. I just got back from a side trip to the library on my way home. Score!! They were having a BOGO on their romance used books. So I got 8 books for TWO Dollars!!!!! (I would have gotten more but all I had in my pocket was two bucks and the hubby said I could not buy anything until payday.) But in the stacks were Sharon Shinn's first (?) five book in her Samaria series. So I got Archangel, Jovah's Angel, The Alleluia Files, Angelica and Angel-Seeker. I have heard good things about this series so I was very excited. The other three that I got were Touch Me by Lucy Monroe, The Wilde Side by Janelle Denison and The Love of a Lawman by Anna Jeffrey.

I got tagged by nath to list my three not so familiar favorite books
Rules: List and describe three of your favorite books that other people might not be familiar with. Then tag five people. See, easy!

This took a lot of thought but was fun to look through past reads. I will go with ...

Beautiful Dreamer
Beautiful Dreamer by Elizabeth Lowell ( I am sure this is not very unknown, but it is one of my favs)

Hope has no choice but to trust this dark stranger who claims to make dreams real. And Rio, who has never had a dream of his own to follow, has found something in this extraordinary lady whose passion tempts him to defy his own rules.In the midst of adversity, two free spirits must now explore the most closely guarded corners of their they search for a beautiful dream big enough to hold them both.

Sleeping with Beauty (Bantam Book)Sleeping with Beauty by Donna Kauffman (hey, it is a nerd book and a friends to lovers book, two things I love)

At twenty-eight, elementary-school teacher Lucy Harper still feels more like a wallflower than the sex goddess she knows is trapped inside her. In fact, she can barely remember the last time she actually had sex. She claims she’s content with her life, but she doesn’t even realize she’s slipping into a coma–a sex coma, that is. Until It arrives: the invitation to her ten-year high school reunion.
Lucy’s childhood pals Jana and Grady are baffled by her decision to attend. But they’ve managed to put geek-hood behind them. This may be Lucy’s last chance to lose her loser reputation and knock her ex-classmates’ socks off–thanks to the modern-day fairy godmothers at Glass Slipper, Inc. For a not-so-small fee, they promise to bring out the princess in any woman. If only Lucy’s friends were more supportive, especially Grady. After all, he loves her like a sister. Doesn’t he?
Soon Lucy is under the scrutiny of eccentric self-made diva Vivian dePalma. And the diagnosis is dour: Lucy has slipped into the final stage of Sleeping Beauty Syndrome–meaning her love life is near death. Can Vivian rouse her in time for the reunion? And will a kiss from her teen crush really be enough to awaken her? For Lucy hasn’t quite opened her eyes to one important truth: the soul mate she’s been dreaming of has never left her side.

I cannot think of anyone who has not been tagged yet, so I will do the general "I tag anyone who has not been tagged yet".
