This is what you get. This is who I am. Take me now or leave me, any way you can.

Pages: 355 | Release Date: August 2009

"Sleepless In Scotland" [MacLean Curse Series, Book 4] by Karen Hawkins -- Living in 1811 and being in London's High Society, have its consequences if you do not keep up decorum. This is what happens to Caitriona and Hugh when they try saving their siblings from themselves, however instead their plans backfire. Then they find themselves in compromising positions (at least for 1811), and since other people become aware of the situation they ended up in, the two are forced to marry each other.

Even though both do not want to marry each other, Caitriona tries to make the best of it, while Hugh tries to keep her from being as involved in his life as much as he can – especially when that means anything to with his daughters. Now with only a few months together (per Hugh’s “order”), so Caitriona can rebuild her reputation then move back into her family’s home, she has put up with the family she married into, that seems to not want her there, while trying to make them realize she is exactly what they needed. Will she succeed before it’s too late?

4 out of 5 stars. It's the first time I've read a book from this series and if this book is any estimation of the whole series then I would definitely recommend it to all of you! It was sweet, funny, and a great historical romance!!

"The Night Before Scandal" [Heart's Temptation Series, Book 7] by Scarlett Scott

Author's Book Description : What happens in a carriage doesn’t always stay in a carriage...

Lord Harry Marlow reluctantly attends a Christmas house party hosted by his brother and his sister-in-law, who also happens to be the woman he once longed to wed himself. He’s not pleased by the prospect of holly and mistletoe and merrymaking any more than he is with the reminder of the love he could have had. But his dismay doesn’t last for long when a mysterious stranger in the midst of a blizzard captures his interest.

Lady Alexandra Danvers is unabashedly eccentric. Nothing and no man interests her more than her scientific pursuits. Until she meets the sinfully handsome Lord Harry, that is. When sparks fly between the unlikely pairing, scandal isn’t far behind. Will Lord Harry and Lady Alexandra find true love together by Christmas day?

Length: novella

Note: Previously appeared in the collection "Seduced Under the Mistletoe." This is an extended version never before published.

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars. One girl in men’s clothes wins over the younger brother of a Duke and in a turn of events their lives entwine for good.

This was a uniquely written historical romance that I did like a lot. I enjoyed how

I don’t know but I think I maybe fallin’ for you. Dropping so quickly, maybe I should keep this to myself, waiting ’til I know you better.

Format: Hardcover | Pages: 267 | Release Date: August 2004 | Publisher: Delacorte Press

"The Immortal Highlander" [The Highlander Series, Book 6] by Karen Marie Moning -- In this novel Ms. Moning took Adam Black from villain Book 1 (and maybe a few others in this series) and made him the hero! Basically Adam had been a considerable grievance to the Faery Queen in fighting against the High Council and her to save a mortals life, and because of that she punished him by taking his powers away, making him human, and making him invisible to all the mortals around him for an unknown period of time.

After a couple of months later at an impasse of what he might do to let the Faery Queen give back his immortality, a sidhe-seer named Gabrielle (Gabby) gets caught looking at him and he realizes she might just be able to save him.

Gabby tries to fight off his lure, but with his charms he is hard to keep resisting, and she just might be falling for one of the "things" her grandmother had told her always to stay away from. But what will happen once Adam gets his powers back? And with someone on Adam's tail trying to kill him over centuries old arguments while he's in human form, will they even survive before they get Adam to speak to the Queen?

4.5 out of 5 stars! It's a wonderful love story! Loved the characters! In addition, if you are a fan of the Fever series then you MUST read this book since it will give you a little more background info on Darroc -- why he was punished the way he was and how he started becoming what he is now.

My Previous Review(s) for this Series: Book 1

Like a bolt out of the blue, Fate steps in and sees you through. When you wish upon a star, Your dreams come true.

Format: Paperback | Pages: 375 | Release Date: March 1999 [Reissue edition] | Publisher: Dell

"Beyond the Highland Mist" [The Highlander Series, Book 1] by Karen Marie Moning -- This novel is set up with three situations going on that make this whole scenario that much more complicated.

First - We have Hawk. He's a Scotland laird from 1500's who is a legend to everyone around him, with his beautiful looks and his exceptionally knowledgeable skills in the bedroom, Hawk seems to be sought after by every female and is the envy of every man. However, for many years he hasn't been able to joy his skills and other delights as much as he use to, especially while he has been under the King's thumb having to do whatever he is told (even if it means having to bed woman he turned down). Just as his years of service are coming to an end, the King makes one more command; Hawk has to marry a lady called Mad Janet (who has spent most of her life trapped in a tower for unknown reasons).

Second - We have the King and the fool (aka the jester, aka Adam Black) of the fairy court. One day the Queen of the fairy court tells the King and Adam that she has been with Hawk and that he is everything that the legend states of him and more, all in attempt to make them jealous. And jealous they do get. So, the King and Adam plan on revenge against Hawk, to find him a woman who he can never have.

Third - We have Adrienne. She is from the 21st century, and has had very bad experiences with beautiful man. One in particular who used her without her knowledge for such a long time that once she found out his scams, he tried to kill her. And from then on she made a vow to hate all beautiful men, since she assumes they are all the same.

And so ... Adam chooses Adrienne and brings her back to the 1500's to fill Mad Janet’s place and marry Hawk. But can the legend melt her heart? Or will the fairy's revenge work?

3 out of 5 stars. Good book ... however, the tale was too drawn out ... and the issues could have been resolved sooner and possibly would have been a better book that way. =0P I did like the characters though! =0)

Made the Grade: Just Imagine by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Format: Paperback | Pages: 372 | Release Date: September 2001 | Publisher: Avon Books

"Just Imagine" by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

My Book Summary : This is a historic romance book that was set in a time period right after the American Civil War (also known as the War Between the States) happened. A time where the south was still smarting at being told what they could do with their property/possessions. Also, it was time where women had no rights unless they were single/spinsters.

For Kit (Katharine Louise) she was an eighteen-year-old girl from South Carolina, who has lost all of her family and just found out that a Mr. Baron Cain just got ownership of her family's plantation (Risen Glory). She is more tomboy then debutante. Also, she plans on killing Mr. Cain if it the last thing she does. So, she takes a train to New York City, finds Cain's residence, and plans on tracking his moves to find the best opportunity. However, she doesn't expect to get caught on her first night of hiding on his property by Cain himself! She decides to say she was looking for a job, and with her appearance -- looking like a fourteen-year-old boy, she gets hired as Cain's new stable boy.

Kit only has a week before she needs to leave so she tries to do what she told (for the most part), even if her mouth (with all the cussing, etc) gets away from her. But soon both of them are in for a shock -- Cain finds out that he's the owner of Risen Glory, that his stable boy is actually an eighteen-year-old girl with plans to murder him, but they both find that along with the plantation he has become the guardian of Kit until she turns 23 years old and can gain her inheritance or she marries (which she has no intention in ever doing).

So now instead of killing him, since Kit decides she just can't do that, she plans to do everything within her power to get her beloved home back from this handsome and dangerous man. What links will both of them go to keep their pride at all costs? Read to find out ...

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars! I don't read many historical romances (or if I do most are set in England, not America), but for the setting I feel this book was very cute and true to that time period ... while sticking to how this author writes her stories best! I was kind of disappointed with how the characters played out the situations ... and the ending felt a little too rushed. But all in all since from what I've read this was the authors first books, I would recommend it to anyone who is a fan of hers like I am! =0)

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Ain't She Sweet | What I Did for Love | Nobody's Baby But Mine | Honey Moon | Dream a Little Dream | Lady Be Good

Book Teaser(s) :
He told himself this was for her own good. She was willful and stubborn, a danger to herself. Whether he liked it or not, he was her guardian, which meant he had a responsibility to guide her.
But he didn't feel like a guardian. He felt like a man who was losing a struggle with himself.
"Go away!"
He twisted the knob and let himself in.
She stood by the window, the last of the sunlight casting her exquisite face into shadow. She was a wild, beautiful creature, and she tempted him beyond bearing. ~ within Chapter 11

Someday we’ll know, If love can move a mountain ...

Can two people, who've grown up as sworn enemies, ever become something more? In "Comanche Moon" (part of the The Comanche Series) by Catherine Anderson is about a prophecy and how it brings these two people from opposing sides, Hunter of the Wolf and Loretta, together during 1860's life in Texas. Both have means to hate each other as both of their "people" have killed each others loved ones. But could that common difference actually bring them together or rip them apart even more?

3 out of 5 stars. It's definitely a telling story of those who lived during the Civil War time period. I mean everyone is just defending their own loved ones, the only problem is that (like what still happens now in any war) the ones who really get hurt and the ones that aren't even fighting in the war (the women and children). Very touching, and emotional. Good read. (However .... I think it dragged in a few areas ... still good though.)

For more information on this book, series, and/or other books from Catherine then please check out her website.

Feasted On: Honey Moon by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Format: Paperback | Pages: 440 | Release Date: June 1993 | Publisher: Pocket Books

"Honey Moon" by Susan Elizabeth Phillips

My Book Summary : This is about Honey, the two man that loved her and how she loved them back...
  • Honey :
    • At six years old her mother kills herself leaving Honey to live with her aunt Sophie, her uncle Earl, and her cousin Chantal, a family who doesn't respect her and uses her to no end. The only good thing that came out of it was that it made her tough, since she was always looking little and years younger then her actual age, she learned to always take things on with your fists swinging and you usually will be able to make whatever you want happen.

      That characteristic of hers helps since after her uncle passes away, at 15 or 16-years-old, she is left in charge of the amusement park that her family owns and lives at. However, when you still look young for your age, it's hard to have anyone take her seriously. Therefore, when times get tough on her family and the state shuts down the amusement park, Honey signs up her cousin for a beauty pageant where the grand prize is an audition in LA for a new show that is planning to air soon. As luck would have it, Chantal wins but shortly the grand prize changes and Honey does everything she can to not see there future go up in smoke, so she finds an old truck and drives her cousin across the country so she can audition.

      Once they get there the audition people find Chantal very pretty but not right for the part, but Honey captures the eye of the main star Dash Coogan who does everything in his power to have her play his daughter for the TV show. And over night, her life completely changes ...
  • Dash Coogan :
    • He is in his early 40's and a big-time Hollywood star (or should I say cowboy) with money troubles in the form of the IRS. So, to pay it off he agrees to make and be apart of The Dash Coogan Show even though it's against his better judgment. During the auditions he tells the producer to change the script so that Honey can play his daughter since she fits in a lot better then any of the other girls they were looking at.

      Once the filming starts, however he goes from being nice to Honey to completely trying to avoid her. He has problems with having people get to close, which is why he admits that he has 3 ex-wives and children that he has never raised. However, Honey just wants a family and looking for one in all of the wrong places, like trying to get him to be her role model or her substitute father.

      Therefore, when Honey starts getting out-of-hand on set a co-worker of theirs gets him to step-in and take control of the situation. Once he does, his life will never be the same...
  • Eric Dillon :
    • He's the bad boy co-star on the The Dash Coogan Show, and the crush of Honey's right off the bat. But Eric has a past that always seems to stop him from not being able to live his life, especially when he believes that anyone he considers an innocent will ultimately get hurt if he has anything to do with him. This goes on throughout his life, making him walk away from anything good or not really seeing the things/people who care about him. Honey just happens to be one of those innocents he was always talking about. When he meets her, he can tell by the look in her eyes that she has a crush on him, so he does everything in his power to be mean to her so she'll stay away from him.

      As the years past, Honey and Eric's lives go in completely different directions but when they both seem to have hit rock bottom they manage to help pull each other through...
My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! At first I wasn't sure what to make of this book but it really drew me in and I could get enough. I loved the relationship between Dash & Honey, just thinking about it makes me cry. Eric & Honey made a good couple too after all of the struggles they went through. It's a story about love, hope, friendship, and family. In addition, it's about what someone who had never grown up with almost any of that would do to keep the family she has together at all costs, and find out what real love is all about. Warning though at certain parts of the book I cried like a baby so you might too.

My Previous Review(s) for this Author : Ain't She Sweet | What I Did for Love | Nobody's Baby But Mine

Book Teaser(s) :
He spoke softly, still not looking at her. "You really mean it, don't you?"
"I really mean it."
He gazed at her, and even though he cleared his throat, his voice was husky with emotion. "You're the damnedest, most aggravating female I've ever met."
At first she thought it was a trick of the firelight, but then she knew it was no trick at all. Dash Coogan has tears in his eyes. ~ within Chapter 18

When I think of this book which song do I think goes with it? : Looking For Love by Johnny Lee
