Penelope's Super Quick Impressions About A Whole Bunch Of Books



Virgin River by Robyn Carr. Jack, you are way too good to be true. Where are you? Where? Where? You're an incredible lover, can accessorize a house, fly fish, shoot a bear, are super patient and a handy-dandy carpenter. Plus a war hero. Where are you again? My number is HURRY-UP-AND-FIND-ME!

Wolf! by Marie Beau. Short, sexy and sweet paranormal with a scrum-diddly-icious hero named Wolfe. This book is fast-paced...just the way I like it. Love the animalistic instincts, love the "furry pelt" on the hero. There's just not enough furry pelts in my romance novels...yum!

A Kiss At Midnight by Eloisa James. Still can't finish this sucker. Sigh. I'll keep trying.

Dark Peril by Christine Feehan. There's creamy skin. There are velvet sheaths. (There's a lot of velvet. Enough velvet to reupholster an entire medieval castle). But there's also a really calm, rational and patient Carpathian dude who totally rocks out. Calm, rational, patient Carpathian? Has Hell frozen over? I am digging this new hero. As in digging under the healing earth to find his hidden cave where he's sleeping. Naked. :)

The Sheikh's Virgin Princess by Sarah Morgan. "She couldn't be a virgin-she was a rebel princess who wouldn't be tamed. She was hiding secrets, refusing to do his bidding!" This is an actual sentence from the book blurb. Which is why I read the book. Hilarious. Even includes exclamation points for extra emphasis. A virgin! "Their wedding vows had to be sealed!" Another excellent exclamation point. I should be embarrassed by how much I enjoyed this book. Ridiculously fun.

Petals and Thorns by Jennifer Paris. Naughty, quick BDSM-light take on Beauty and the Beast. Super sexy and the beast is to-die-for. I do like my men hairy.

Shelter Mountain by Robyn Carr. A re-read. Oh, Preacher. That bald head, those bushy eyebrows, your sweet gentle giant of a personality. This is quickly becoming one of my favorite re-reads. Preacher is one of the best...heroes....ev-ah!

Ciao!
Penelope

Funny - this just popped up on my Google alerts. I know you told me on Twitter, but I'm so pleased you liked Petals & Thorns!

Hi Jeffe! I really liked your story....I have trouble with a lot of BDSM books, but for some reason this one worked for me. The beast was a cool combination of tortured and torturing...hee hee! :)
