Not much going on here except writing letters and waiting to see about education budget cuts in my county. It looks like I am on a possible chopping block because i am still on annual contract. this was supposed to be my last year on it, funny how that works out. My school board has to cut $112 million dollars from its budget.
Promises in Death (In Death book ??) by JD Robb great addition to the series. we saw more personal life in this onethan the last. Lots of good lines and parts. One of my favorites was at the end in one the interview rooms when she told the person that they would have front row seats. (A)
The Spy Who Wants Me by Lucy Monroe Good read. Good characters, had one of my favorite hero types, the strong nerd. Not my favorite by her but I thought it was a nice solid read. (B-)
Reluctant Hearts (Dragon Riders 2) by Marty Rayne (e-book) apparently I did not review the first book. Good series so far. In this world dragons protect the people from bad guys and big bad beasties. Each dragon has a rider that they bond with (mentally, psychically and sometimes physically), if the dragon dies, they will die. If they are supposed to bond with a dragon and refuse it, they will go insane. The dragons however live very long lives and can have many riders in the course of their life. fun fantasy story. This one is MF the first book was MMF. (B-)
Point of Distraction (Book 2) by Cindy Jacks (e-book) review to come at Book Binge
Kiss of a Demon King (Immortals After Dark Book 6) by Kresley Cole Fun read, I had been looking forward to this book for a long time. great addition to the series. sabine was a very fun character to watch, she definitely had her own code of ethics, which is a nice change. (A-)
Speed Dating by Nancy Warren (e-book) This was one of the free e-books that harlequin was giving away for their anniversary. It was a sweet story. He mstakes her for his pretend girlfriend and she seems to be good luck fr him so asks her to travel the circuit with him until she starts her new job. They spend the next 12 weeks getting to know each other. they are a couple on camera and platonic friends off, but what do you do when one falls for the other one. Totally PG, they did not do anything until after the book was over. (B-)

The first story ("Can't Get Enough" by Shelly Laurenston) was about two dragon shifters in a fantasy world backdrop. I really enjoyed this one, but I love all her stuff. Great short story, fun, good storyline, good chemistry, good characters,very enjoyable read. Grade A
The second was Ms Eden's story, "Spellbound". I did not like this one as much, but it was a solid story. Grade B
The third story ("Turn Me On" by Noelle Mack) was my least favorite. I could not connect with the characters, they seemed very shallow. And I was not a big fan of the hero, he had no depth. He was good in bed and wealthy, but that was pretty much it. Grade D+ Labels: contemporary, magic, paranormal, shape-shifter
