Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 10355 comments The May challenge is all about May. If the word "may" is in the title or the author's name has may in it or if you can find the letters M-A-Y somewhere in the title or author's name. Good luck to all!

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 14213 comments I'm changing my challenge b/c I found out Assassin Study (Study, #1.5) by Maria V. Snyder is just a short story and, after looking at more reviews (and dispite loving the series and owning the book) I don't want to read Yours for the Taking by Robin Kaye right now.

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 10355 comments Good luck, Lisa Kay!

I'm still looking for my book. I have one in mind but I have to read the one before it in the series. Will try and start it tomorrow. Anyway, my book may be In Harm's Way by Irene Hannon. I read the 1st book in series and liked it.


message 14: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 14213 comments Wow! Pamela, that one sounds really good. I may have to check out that series. I've never heard of this author.

Against All Odds (Heroes of Quantico, #1) by Irene Hannon An Eye for an Eye (Heroes of Quantico #2) by Irene Hannon In Harm's Way (Heroes of Quantico #3) by Irene Hannon


message 15: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 10355 comments She is a christian author but not too preachy in my opinion. I love a good hot and steamy scene but you won't find them in her books but you don't really miss em either because she writes a good tale.


message 16: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (last edited May 09, 2011 03:43PM) (new)

Lisa Kay (LisaKayAliceMaria) | 14213 comments I saw she had a downloadable "Love Inspired" book from my library. I do read that line occassionally. I read it all - as long as it is HEA! :)
A Dream To Share by Irene Hannon


Julianna (AuthorJuliannaD) | 450 comments I finished one of my two books, The Secret Pearl by Mary Balogh. What an awesome emotional story!

ILL has really been dragging their feet this month. I'm still not sure if the other one is going to get here in time. I'll cross my fingers.:-)


Fran | 88 comments I finished A Modern Wicked Fairy Tale  Rapunzel (erotic erotica short) (Modern Wicked Fairy Tales) by Selena Kitt - a touching, emotional, and of course hot (it is Selena Kitt) short story- I loved it!


message 19: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 10355 comments I finished mine In Harm's Way by Irene Hannon. Very good.


BJ Rose (BJRose) | 500 comments I finished Summer By the Sea by Susan Wiggs. It was good, but not a keeper. I did like the way she melded past & present events so that we were able to understand past actions.
