June

I liked Randi’s idea for June. So, with a few slight modifications, here is June’s challenge.
WEDDING BELLS ARE RINGING

Commitment—2 books where weddings happen (she had suggested weddings or engagements, but I like the idea of just the weddings for this one.) It could be a wedding that the h/H attend, it could be theirs, it could even be a "runaway bride/groom" one.

Toss his clothes in the lit fireplace 2 books where the MC was cheated on and went on to either find a new love OR to find out that someone else had been trying to sabotage his/her relationship and they get back together with the love interest

Perfect fit 2 books where an interspecies (werewolf/vampire, human/vampire, human/werewolf, werewolf/werewhatever) romance occurs.

Honeymoon 2 books where the two mcs are on their honeymoon (original or second/third/fifteenth)

Broken Heart 2 books where the SO dies/disappears for one reason or another, only to turn up again for that hea we all love. With this one, the SO has to be thought dead or totally removed from the MC’s life for whatever reason. So having the SO becoming a vampire or werewolf and dropping out of sight for that reason is one example of this. I know that there are a couple of series out there where one or the other of the MC’s works for a company/government agency that polices the super-natural world and that this has happened with, so I know that’s one option. Having them go into hiding for Witness Protection is another idea. And, if it gets really hard to find something to fit this—then a widow/widower will work.

Sorry, May got away from me, and I'm late getting this posted. What problems do you all see with this one?

Monica (snowbunny1977) I'm probably only going to be able to do 5 unless I accidentally come across anymore later in the month. This was a difficult challenge to do for me. I read mainly UF and PNR. I cant afford to really buy a bunch of new books to fulfill the challenge so I had to work with what I had. :) I've completed 5/5.

 ♥Lynn ♥  | 519 comments I just read A Place in the Sun by R.S. Grey. If you haven't read her romance books, then you need to discover her! I absolutely love her writing. Nothing paranormal, but still really well written stories.

Drea Anyone have an suggestions for "honeymoon" books? All the ones that I have found I've already read.

A re-read is fine as long as it wasn't last month that you read it. I re-read a lot of my favs. (Almost all of my Andre Norton's, a bunch of my Georgette Heyer's, about 3/4 of my Robert A. Heinlein, when I'm hurting any one or two--or five--of my Shelly Laurenston, G.A. Aiken. . . ) So, go ahead and re-read it. Especially if it's one of an on-going series. Whenever a new Mercy Thompson or Kate Daniels book is due out, I haul out the entire series and re-read it to get ready for that new book.

I Googled Paranormal Romance about honeymoon

and it came up with a decent list. Probably could try more Googling with different wording, especially since it can be any genre. I tried the "Lists" here, but didn't see much. Also, I *know* I've read several PNR where they went on a honeymoon, maybe later in series but for the life of me can't think of ONE!!!

I don't think your link worked if it was meant to be under "Lists"
;-)

Oh, I didn't post any links, was just suggesting trying to Google different words and see what comes up. Also, I didn't find anything in "Lists", but there too, if you play with the words, sometimes you get something good.

Ah yes, Listopia, it is all about the words you use. I have looked for something without success. Only to have a friend go to it and just try a different phrase or word and find some great ideas/options.
I have also found that if you Google the phrase and look for a Goodreads link you can find the Listopia you couldn't from this search. Crazy but true.
