Blood Brothers
Blood Brothers - Nora Roberts

This is my first Norah Roberts book. I've read all of her J.D.Robb books but somehow never managed to read anything under her real name. Definitely a different writing style. I really liked the paranormal aspects in this book but it did seem to drag a bit. But it is the first book in the trilogy so there is quite a bit of back history being explained & the story line being set up for the following books. It starts out in Hawkins Hollow with 3 boys going on an overnight camping trip into the woods for their 10th birthday.The boys (Caleb-Fox-Gage) perform a bonding ceremony at midnight where they cut their wrist & hold them together to create a Blood Brother Bond. Unfortunately the blood drips onto the stone & unleashes a demon & the original guy that trapped him several hundred years ago. Then we jump forward 21 years to the present. This book mainly centers around Caleb & Quinn who has come to town to write a book about all the unexplained acts that have been going on in the hollow every 7 years I like Quinn she definitely has her own opinions & stands up for them. We're also introduced to Layla & Cybil. As it progresses the ladies start doing more research & realize that they are descendants from the demon & the men are descendants from Giles Dent & Ann Hawkins. Giles is the original guy that trapped the demon. From my perspective there was not a lot of action in this book so it did drag for me.  I am going to continue with the trilogy hoping that because most of the set up has been done that there is more action in the next book

How To Tame A Willful Wife
How to Tame a Willful Wife - Christy English

This was a fun book to read. The antics of the heroine Caroline Montague after her father marries her off to Anthony Carrington are a treat to read. Anthony thinks he is going to guide & tell her what to do after all isn't that what all husbands should do. He quickly finds out that this is not the case with Caroline. What follows after the marriage is a light hearted romp through regency England. Caroline comes into the marriage already knowing how to fence-skilled in the use of daggers & of all things wearing britches & rides astride of her horse Hercules. Anthony is having none of this his wife is going to be decorous & an asset to the the Earldom. If you're looking for a light hearted romance & a fun read I highly recommend this book.

The Viper
The Viper - Monica McCarty

I started this book & couldn't put it down until I finished. Lachlan MacRuairi also known as Viper is part of the Highland Guard for Robert Bruce King of Scotland. As this book starts he is going after Isabella who has been held in captivity for the last 4 years. Lachlan has feelings for Isabella that he just doesn't want to admit too. He claims that this will be his last mission for the King before he goes off to live on his own island alone for some peace & quiet. He also feels guilty that Isabella was captured because he was drunk & not paying attention so the English followed him back to where they were hiding. There's plenty of action & intrigue to keep you interested in the book & not want to put it down. I loved the non stop action & reading about the highlands. Miss McCarty does her research & it shows in her books this is the 4th book in the Highland Guard Series. For anybody that loves bad boys wearing kilts then you'll love this book. Enjoy

Summon The Keeper
Summon the Keeper - Tanya Huff

I loved the dry humor in this book & the cat rocked. Austin the cat was definitely 1 of my favorite characters in this book. Claire & Austin are summoned to a run down bed & breakfast & then get tricked into taking it over by a rotten little man. What follows is so much fun. Dean the handyman adds to the fun. We also have Jacques the ghost. Claire starts developing feelings for Dean & Jacques which she tries to keep to herself because she believes that keepers should never be involved with anyone. The snarky comments from the cat along with Claire battling the evil in the basement who is also talking to her are a riot. I had so much fun reading this book & will definitely be continuing the series. If you like magic & ghosts with a lot of humor than I recommend checking out this book enjoy.

Secrets of a Summer Night
Secrets of a Summer Night - Lisa Kleypas

This is the first book in the Wallflower Series. Annabelle Peyton has been a wallflower for a number of years & has spent several of those years sitting beside the same ladies. Finally they start talking to each other & vow to help each other find husbands. Annabelle is becoming quite desperate as this will be the last year that she can attend the season. Her family is pretty much broke. Thus the journey begins where the wallflowers take London by storm. They are Annabelle-Lillian-Evangeline-& Daisy. How Simon Hunt goes about wooing Annabelle & the antics of the wallflowers makes for a fun read. This is my first book by this author & I am so glad that she was recommended to me. I really enjoy Lisa Kleypas's style of writing. I would highly recommend this series for anybody looking for a great historical romance as I was.
