Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments Thanks, LK ☺


message 9: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Sure, Pamela. I know I marked one to read that has a yellow cover. It is a contemporary romance, and the heroine falls out the window ogling the handyman... but I can't for the life of me remember who wrote it or its title. LOL!

Rhea Rhodan (rhea_rhodan) | 31 comments The hero of my current WIP runs a green construction company. Can't wait to be able to add it to this list. My dad worked construction and I guess I've always considered those guys men's men.

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments I'm trying to get me an "own" shelf going. You know books I still have. I started it and I'm surprised I have some and I wonder where some of my faves are. Did I really get rid of them? Oh, woe is me!


message 33: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Oh, I hate it when a fav goes missing. I just hope I loaned/gave it to someone who appreciates it.


message 34: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments BTW, do you want architects in this thread? If so, there is:
The Next Always (Inn BoonsBoro Trilogy, #1) by Nora Roberts


message 35: by Pamela(AllHoney), Fairy Godmother (new)

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments yes, I think architects would work in this thread. Thanks. I used to read Nora Roberts all the time and probably read somewhere over 30 or so of her books. Sadly, I can only remember a few that I read. But that doesn't look familiar.


message 36: by Lisa Kay, Tinker Bell (new)

Lisa Kay (lisakayalicemaria) | 21897 comments Yes, it is a new series she has started, Pamela. There are several brothers in it - all builders/architects, etc. I wish I'd tagged more as I read them. Just read one, but ugh! not worth mentioning.


message 37: by Zumbagirl (new)

Zumbagirl | 9 comments Tears of the Moon (Gallaghers of Ardmore / Irish Trilogy, #2) by Nora Roberts - the heroine is a construction worker. It was my favorite in the series too, loved the hero, and it's a perfect summertime/beach read

Pamela(AllHoney) (pamelap) | 14526 comments okay, thanks bunches!

The Gamble (Colorado Mountain, #1) by Kristen Ashley Very good and great series.

Liberating Lacey by Anne Calhoun the hero is a cop but his dad is a contractor and he helps him out. This is a real treasure of a book.

Yours to Keep (Kowalski Family, #3) by Shannon Stacey Sweet

Honeymoon Hotline (That Special Woman/The Jones Gang) (Harlequin Special Edition, No 1052) by Christine Rimmer I really like this whole series.
