* If you would like to know what I think about the books I didn't share my ratings or reviews with you about, than leave a comment about which one you want info on and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.


  1. Have you read anything by Rosanne Bittner? She's my favorite author. She writes Historical Romance. I would suggest reading Outlaw Hearts and her sequel to that is Do Not Forsake Me. She is currently working on a 3rd book to this series. But really anything you pick up from her is GOLDEN! She's an amazing writer! If you have any time in your reading please pick up a book from her. You won't be disappointed.

    1. THANK YOU for the suggestion! I have yet to read a book from her but I'll kept her in mind. I am a huge book lover (if you couldn't already tell) and have a problem that my even with my extensive TBR list I'm always looking for other good books to read. =0)

  2. You will definitely fall in love with her writing and her characters and seek out more of her books. I have been reading her books for 24 years now and still can't get enough of them! She's re-releasing her older books slowly on Amazon thru e-readers and I'm so happy I get to revisit these older books that I don't have anymore. Let me know if you do read her books and if you enjoy it. :) Thanks!!
