Then later, after my hubby came home from work, we went to see "
at the theatre ($5.50
Tuesdays). That was a good movie and I highly recommend it. I love those
feel-good movies and this was definitely that. McFarland, USA"
Okay, on to what I read this week (I’m still TWO books ahead of schedule, too—whoo hoo!):
Mar 5: “Allegiance” by Susannah Sandlin, #4 of the Penton Legacy Series, a paranormal romance at 322 pages long. Blurb from book: British vampire psychiatrist and former mercenary Cage Reynolds returns to
, looking for a permanent
home. The town has been ravaged by the ongoing vampire war and the shortage of
untainted human blood, and now the vampires and humans that make up the Omega
Force are trying to rebuild. Cage hopes to help the cause, put down roots in
Penton, and resolve his relationship with Melissa Calvert. The last thing he
expects to find himself drawn to Robin Ashton, a trash-talking eagle
shape-shifter and new Omega recruit. Meanwhile, as a dangerous saboteur wreaks
havoc in Penton, the ruthless Vampire Tribunal leader Matthias Ludlam has been
freed on the eve of his scheduled execution. But by whom? And to what end? As
war and chaos rage on, love isn’t something Cage is looking for, but will his
attention to Robin distract him from the danger living among them? I
like this series and the characters who have been featured before. This book
was good, too. Had lots of suspense. I just wish it had a little more romance.
Not sure if the series is finished yet. If it isn’t, I’ll grab the next one for
sure (and hope for more romance!). Penton,
Mar 8: “The Immortal Who Loved Me,” by Lynsay Sands, #21 of the Argeneau Vampire Series, a paranormal romance at 357 pages long. Blurb from book: A few hours ago, Sherry Carne would have sworn that vampires didn’t exist. That’s before rogue immortals rampage through her store, leaving bloody chaos (literally) in their wake. The kicker comes when Sherry learns that one of the vamps on the bad guys’ trail may be her life mate. Her head says it’s impossible. The rest of her takes one look at Basileios Argeneau and has much more interesting ideas. Whatever Basil expected in a life mate, funny, outspoken Sherry isn’t it. But mind-blowing chemistry and instinct don’t lie. They tell him something else, too—that Sherry’s connection to the immortal world goes deeper than she knows. And that she’s in the kind of danger only Basil can save her from—if she’ll just trust him, now and forever… Oooooohhhhhh, I just LOVED this book. It’s been awhile since I could just sit and read (finishing my edits might have helped in that regard). So glad it happened with this book, because I would have had a hard time putting it down otherwise. It was one sexy and funny read. This is one of those series I could re-read back-to-back-to-back if I didn’t have a ton of other books to read!
So… Have you filed your taxes? It took me 5 hours to complete mine. Actually, it’s taking longer than that. I still have to file them all (I wanted the hubby to look them over before I did that). I’m using software, too! What. A. Pain. I can only imagine how long it would have taken me if I did it manually. If I ever start making real money with this writing gig (real money=profit), I may just go out and get myself an accountant.
