November has blown by in no time flat. I can’t believe it’s almost December. I haven’t been online much this month and feel rather out of the loop, but I’m hoping that I’ll have more free time next month. If Christmas doesn’t get in the way, that is… 😉
Silk is For Seduction by Loretta Chase: I absolutely adored this book. Not only did it have Chase’s customary charm (I love her friendly, conversational writing style), but it had an enchantingly practical heroine who was able to flummox the hero at every turn. And who doesn’t love a good flummox? This was one of my favorites of the month. Go now, all of you, and read it! If you need more convincing, check out my review of this A+ worthy book.
“Surprise?” she said. “There’s an understatement. Have you taken leave of your senses?”
“I was worried about you,” he said. “When you left Paris so suddenly, I thought a catastrophe had occurred. Or a murder. Have you murdered anybody, by the way? Not that I would dream of criticizing, but—“
“I left Paris to get away from you,” she said.
“Well, that didn’t work.”

A Beginner’s Guide to Rakes by Suzanne Enoch: This one fit me to a T. The cover and title have nothing to do with the actual story, which is a tad irritating, but the story itself is awesome. The hero and heroine were both ruthless and manipulative and jockeyed back and forth for the upper hand in their relationship. I haven’t read an Enoch with a heroine quite like this, but I loved how she cast her. Enoch’s characteristic writing style makes the pages turn quickly, the dialogue is snappy, and you can feel the tension between the two leads. What’s not to love? This gets an A+ from me! You can read the review for it here.
”It’s not about what I owe you, Diane. It’s about what you’re worth to me now.”
Angel of Darkness by Cynthia Eden: This was my first Eden, but it won’t be my last. I thought the relationship between the hero and the heroine was very well done. They had a bit of a “City of Angels” vibe going for them (sans depressing ending) and the sex was hot. I also enjoyed spending the majority of the book uncertain about who was a “good” guy and who was a “bad” guy. You can read my review for this A grade book here.
“Some things in this world were more important than duty, and some things were even stronger than death.”
If You Hear Her by Shiloh Walker: This was another first time author for me. I love when my first try turns out to be an A worthy book! The book had a great balance of suspense and romance, which is usually my biggest complaint about Romantic Suspense. Added to that, the heroine was blind, but it was never treated cavalierly or turned into an “issue” book. She was just a regular RS heroine who happened to be blind. It was refreshing.
