I can’t believe it’s the last day of April already. It feels like Christmas was just a few weeks ago. How can this be??? That’s okay… I’m loving the longer daylight hours. It’s getting hotter, but there’s nothing better than it being past 8pm and the sun is still out. I can garden!!! 😀 Or read outside as the sun very slowly sets.
Like maybe… one of THESE blurb jolters: ➔ Slow Burn (that title and Kristen Ashley means *fingers crossed* it’s got that addictive old school KA-pining that we love so much!!), Fluffy (she’s a “Fluffer” but not the kind that was being requested on Craigslist. Ooooops!!! *snort*:P ), Tangled Up in You (she’s a single mom and new in town, and he’s the cop that is recovering from being shot), Perfectly Played (two strangers meet in Vegas and have a one-night stand… and then he leaves, and leaves her a note which she doesn’t find *oooomph*)… and Under the Northern Lights (S.C. STEPHENS!!?? :D!! YES PLEASE!! Plus her plane goes down, and she’s rescued in the middle of Alaska by a reclusive man and they’re stuck together until spring…) Oh this one sounds like it’s going straight up to the top of my TBR list!!
Jean: Oooo, you guys…..I loved Under the Northern Lights by S.C. Stephens!!
Leslie M: Oooh, and Under the Northern Lights?? *makes grabby hands and ferociously one-clicks*
Maryse: YES!!!! That one SCREAMS totally my thing!!! Plus I love that author.
