Spent a little too much time doing stuff which was unecessary. Like tracking down this cutie pie picture from hunt in Virginia. Such a Peanut!
Anyway, read Anne Stuart's Black Ice and am partway through LaVyrle Spenser's Morning Glory
Black Ice. Whoa. What a book. Wow.
Will try to be more articulate later.
Also read Chistina Dodd's Move Heaven and Earth. Quite nice.
Edited to Add: Finished Kiss an Angel. She got a lot of the lingo right, but true to the circus? Eh. Not so much. Kind of like reading about a sixth grade girl and thinking, "That would never happen in MY school." She had these hangups about being accepted. Who accepts you in a circus? You show up, you work, you get drunk, you go to bed. Not necessarily in that order. And he's got another profession on the side and they accept HIM? No freaking way. Uh unh. Nope. I think I'll end up writing about that one though--she almost got it and I want to figure out where it clicked and where it slipped. (Except that I could have totally doen without the threatening hero and the plot set-up. She couldn't just be down on her luck and joined a circus to escape an identity? That's what everyone else does--why a forced marriage? AGHHHH!) End of edit.
Jehosiphat? Did I read all that in one weekend? Gulp.
Here's a few more to take you out...."Mommy? Can I have one? Pleeeeese?!"
