Ok I am not so good at reviews. I am going to use this space to list my bodice rippers I read and try to at least add a little blurb of sorts.

WHITNEY MY LOVE by Judith McNaught
WHITNEY MY LOVE by Judith McNaught

I have been wanting to read this for a while to find out what all the fuss was about it. I even picked up a copy of the rewritten version at the library so I could compare the rewritten scenes. I think it should have been left how it was. I thought it was just fine. I really enjoyed this book and I think I am going to hang onto my 1985 version and pretend it was never rewritten! LOL I am sure I will be rereading this again in the future.

A Rose in Winter by Kathleen Woodiwiss

It seems to me that I should have enjoyed this more than I did. All the elements were there for me to really love it.... but I just didn't. Maybe I wasn't in the right mood for it. I like the beauty and the beast/phantom of the opera element to it and enjoyed Kathleen Woodiwiss's writing as always but..... ??? just can't put my finger on it. Oh well.

Your reviews are just fine -- good for you to post them! They make me want to talk about the books with you (they are 2 of my all time faves) which is one of the reasons to post them, right?

Awe, thanks for the kind words Tammy! You are right! That is one of the many wonderful reasons to post reviews!

Check out my review here.

As frustrating as this book was I still really want to read Secret Sins. Call me crazy! I think I might enjoy it more now that I understand the authors writing style, and that the author is a he and has no understanding of romance or how a woman thinks! Ha!

Check out my review here.

Loved this one! I also have Jasmine Veil by this author which just got bumped up nearer the top of Mt. TBR. I am really excited to read more of her work!

I'd love to know what the cover is like! I can't find it online anywhere.

I think I have a scanner up in a closet somewhere someone gave us that we never hooked up to our computer cuz we didn't have a use for it (my hubby and I, I think it was his aunt that gave it to us).... I am going to try to convince him to hunt it down and hook it up for me so I can scan it and others that I have. Now that I have my handy dandy librarian status I can put that thing to use! :)

That librarian status becomes addictive - you feel so responsible! :D

There you go Karla! Got it uploaded (and a bunch more that I had! I think I spent 2 or 3 hours uploading covers and updating descriptions this afternoon LOL)

Before I got a fast home connection, that's what I did at work every morning after getting a batch of books. :D
