Who is The RLftCI Online Elf??? This versatile character changes his name with the season, and his pic gives us all something to drool over from time to time. He's courteous, he's proactive and he likes being (a mod) in charge. But who is he really?? An alter ego for one of the mods? A good excuse to post pictures of hot guys? A way for all the mods to edit some posts? And most importantly... is he single??

Read a book from the mystery or suspense genre or features a hot-hot-hottie on the cover.

Suggestions:

Too Hot To Touch (Rising Star Chef, #1) by Louisa Edwards Insatiable (Federation Chronicles, #3; Phantom Corps, #1) by Lauren Dane Extreme Exposure (I-Team, #1) by Pamela Clare To Die For (Blair Mallory, #1) by Linda Howard Changing the Game (Play by Play, #2) by Jaci Burton

Is that because the historicals lend themselves to the English setting Jenny?

Leif, you big stud, as if you needed another excuse to be more appealing to the ladies!!

Actually, it's because I have several Sarah Mayberry books I want to get to and she is Australian and most of her books are also set in Australia. :)

I absolutely love Marsha Canham!! Any excuse to read her works for me. And her pirate novels are the best. Go for it, Lisa Kay!!

And trollop is my favorite word!! It has such a great ring to it. One of my daughters fell asleep in a boys bed at school (after being a tad tipsy) and I was joking and called her a trollop. It was sooo funny!


message 41: by Lisa Kay, Moderator (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 20797 comments Yes, love the sound of that work, too, Leslie. Like the way it feels on my tongue. And the reaction people have upon hearing it. Don't know why... so much better than the "S" word.
