I've been gone a while. I started reading fanfiction to escape and I got sucked in an abyss.

I have no idea if someone else is hosting similar challenges. I just grabbed some of what I have hosted before.

Here's to a happy year of great reading
Jan2023: Not much has changed. Writing a fanfiction now O_o as well as reading but I bought 7 new books in December and hope to get those read soon. Crossing fingers about adding challenges (late!)

The Magical Christmas Cat

The Magical Christmas Cat
anthology: Lora Leigh, Erin McCarthy, Nalini Singh, Linda Winstead Jones

Berkley Sensation
October 2008
384 pages (trade paperback)
~this book is available on the Kindle~

I love anthologies. You can sample several new authors without taking the time to read full novels. In this case, I was NOT disappointed and will be adding these authors to my list.

Four, new, delightful Christmas paranormal romances with a feline touch.

Stroke of Enticement by Nalini Singh
This is a great introduction to her Psy-Changelings! In the hospital with a broken leg, a little girl asks Santa to bring her a friend. "Someone fun who wanted to be with me and didn't care that my leg was all mangled up." Santa waits a long time to deliver but, man, is he worth it.
I've got book 1 on reserve at the library

Christmas Bree by Erin McCarthy
One of three "witch" sisters finds the love of her life in an unexpected way. (now I want to read about the other two!)

Sweet Dreams by Linda Winstead Jones
This full moon, Il Gatto Nero would be awake just long enough to steal a woman's soul. After taking this one, his ninth, he would "walk the earth, immortal and indestructible and bringing an unimaginable darkness to an unprepared world". Zane is one of a brotherhood waiting for a sign of which soul will be taken.

Ruby just inherited her aunts home, wacky neighbors included. A "secret admirer" leaves a gift for her at the neighborhood Christmas party, a beautiful Jade cat. Too bad it's just what Zane, studly and standoffish professor, has been waiting for. (just a bit scary)

Christmas Heat by Lora Leigh
A short story in the world of her genetically altered breeds. Someone is using the breeds own DNA against them and only one human can testify in court. If she lives long enough. And to add the spice, her main guard is coming into mating heat! (Great intro to the series even if it is in the middle, can't wait to read more)
