Your such a flirt :-) both you.

Aly just pick whatever categories you want to do. If you want to repeat a category, you can do that once, the extra. Otherwise one category per book.

I'm going for Rake. Maybe Lover.

Well I could have put an extra for any book with the level names in the title but that would be on the side of pure romance. Maybe I should add it anyway?

Aly is so frigging bored Cool! Thanks
EDIT: Another Q, do re-reads count?


message 11: by Amyiw, Challenges Moderator (new)

As longs as you read the whole book. A true read. Three of my favorite books are romances. So re-reads are good for this one

Of course :) Too OCD-ish to only read paragraphs or stuff.

It's part of the Shifter Romance Box Set, but I can't find it seperately.

I got them all done, which I wasn't expecting.

@Missyb
BEARed to You by Tawny Taylor or BEARed to You (A Beasts's Mate Romance, #1) by Tawny Taylor which is a 2013 repub of Mark of the Beast (Animal Urges, # 1) by Tawny Taylor from 2009. When you go to add book/author and then enter "Beared to You Taylor" (adding the author wheedles down any other books) it brings up Mark of the Beast. Under the add button there is an other editions link. That's where you find it.

Crazy re-released under new names to make them less erotic. :-) How was that for you? Like your books.
