Sort of Desmond and Penny and also umm...Daniel Farraday and Charlotte, I thought. A blend. Obviously a Lost fan, though.

I actually am more excited about the preview for the next one, with the djinn! I have rarely read about a djinn hero, and *never* dealt with a heroine who was the Oracle of Delphi, so I'm intrigued!

Just got done with the new Courtney Milan. You know, I keep trying so hard to like her, and I like her story setups, the *idea* of them, but they never come off very well when I read them. And this was Mark, the brother of the hero from a few books back, and a *virgin*, and still it did not work for me.

Absolutely loved the Oracle!
Great set up there!

Haven't heard anything or see the new Milan yet.
I really did like the other one she did, though.

So I read this:

http://www.amazon.com/Fifty-Shades-of-Grey-ebook/dp/B0052U59F4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1318249245&sr=8-2

And it was really good. I'm about to describe it in a very off-putting yet accurate manner:

It's like an early 90s Jayne Ann Krentz blended with Twilight except without teenagers or any supernatural element, and also some BDSM that won't make your eyes roll back so far in your head you can't even finish reading it.

I get to lend this and the sequel out once each on Kindle, PM me if interested.

Oh lord.

Weremotorcycles.

Also, just read one where she ordered up one incubus and got two, and the younger one was like, My name is Dantalion, I'll be your incubus this evening. And she was like umm, I only ordered one. And the other said "This one's in training, I hope you don't mind?" Well, *okaaaaaay*.

The spirit of Anima gave Jung the magical ability to create perfect men apparently because his work was less misogynistic than that of many of his contemporaries and he chose to go into the motorcycle business and make perfect men (naturally attuned to one speshul womyn, of course) who shift into motorcycles.

It should be a tv series. We'll call it Knight Ride'im.

Brings a whole new meaning to 'Easy Rider'.

This series is really good:

http://www.amazon.com/Guilty-Phoenix-Rising-Book-ebook/dp/B005HBYQ34/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1318940584&sr=8-7

I've only read the second and the fourth. The fourth is really *really* good.

I can loan this on Kindle, PM if interested.

I'll fix the shitty names

Just read this.

THIS ALONE would be a major improvement. W loves paranormal romance, but the stupid names annoy her a great deal. She'll tell me, and I'm like, "WTF? Seriously?" She's currently into some of the Highlander-type vampires. They don't have those shitty names, apparently.

When I get them in an editable format I fix names, turn blonde women into brunettes or redheads, turn inappropriately dark-haired male virgins into appropriate blonds, etc. Sometimes when I don't like the euphemisms being used for ladyparts I will fix that, too. I read this one where she kept calling it her "gate."

Does your wife read JR Ward? Rhage, Vishous, Phury, other names that have had Hs added indiscriminately?

NA!!

You know how Scandalous Desires has a release date of October 24?

I pre-ordered it on Kindle and saw that there was one that was being released 10/18, so I thought what the hell, I'll see if maybe there's a glitch.

IT IS NOT A GLITCH.

IT IS ON MY KINDLE.

http://www.amazon.com/Scandalous-Desires-Maiden-Lane-ebook/dp/B004QX07E6/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1318970592&sr=8-2

There is a preview for Winter's book at the end!

Also, I totally cheated and read the epilogue so now I know who the Ghost is!

Do you *REALLY* want to know?

The Ghost is not a shock, but you pretty quickly see his package, which I found oddly embarrassing.

The fact that I found it oddly embarrassing is probably a spoiler.

Yes and no.

I don't know.

Guess I'll wait (or hold out as long as I can and then beg you for the reveal lol)

In excellent news, Winter's heroine is a baron's widow, stinking rich, has had a few lovers, and at 32 is 7 years older than he is.

I fully support these choices

LadyV, I don't think so.

WTF? Phury? Rhage? OMG. How scorn-inducing.

If you're going to add indiscriminate Hs, at least come up with something original. Even if it's foolish-sounding, it couldn't be worse than the above. *shaking head*

Vishous.

Rehvenge.

Qhuinn.

I could go on...

NA.

I'm not trying to spoil you, but I simply must insist upon a proper explanation for how the Ghost has managed to pick up the ability to fight with two longswords with no off-hand penalty since he is not a Ranger.

In other news, my goodness, Winter is tightly wound. I think Elizabeth Hoyt is as impatient as we are. I kind of feel like she's giving the main storyline short shrift, but she's *killing* me with him. Killing. Me.

Thoughts on the Merry Gentry series by Laurell K. Hamilton? I've just finished book 1. I'm pleasantly surprised with the character build-up. They're more substantial than I expected. (i.e., not just pretty fairies!)

LadyV, W read HALF of one JR Ward book, did not like. And the superfluous Hs irked her too (of course). That has to be one of the dumbest things for character names. Seriously. W's own maiden name has an odd H in it, so she may have even less patience with it than we do.

She read LKH, and came to detest Anita Blake in the books following Obsidian Butterfly. She had intended to read the whole series, but the books started annoying her so much that she gave that up.

Trashy books aren't supposed to piss you off, I don't think.
