Holy Shitake...you scored!!! I've only read one of those books. Highlander Ever After, by Jennifer Ashley. I have mixed feelings, something about Jennifer Ashley's writing style is odd for me. However....I always end up not being able to put her books down. I know, not much help. If you read that one though (which i thought was a fun read) I recommend reading the ones that come before it, specifically The Mad Bad Duke. They are different, but enjoyable.

Hi Monroe,
Congratz on the swag. You must be in book heaven right now, your inner book-addict is bordering an o.d. LOL I've read Kenyon; Night Pleasures is soooo good, the others enjoyable. Anna Campbel is a fabulous read, Kresley Cole is another top notch author and I've heard a lot of good buzz on Joey W Hill and Monica McCarty.

Enjoy them all and congratz on joining Breezing Through, I just visited and it seems such a fun and different way to review a book! I'll be hopping by once in a while *wink*
