    In the spring of 1926, the Soderbjerg brothers, Ray and Roy, plunge into radio by founding Station WLT (With Lettuce and Tomato) in order to rescue their failing restaurant and become the Sandwich Kings of South Minneapolis. For the next 25 years, the "Friendly Neighbor" station produces a dazzling array of shows and stars: Dad Benson, Wingo Beals, Slim Graves and his Blue Movers, chain-smoking child star Little Becky, and household-tips maven Lucille Larson (who repeatedly broadcasts in her underwear).

    Steve says: "Funny!"
    "Fun, I loved it!"
    Overall

    A nostalgic, touching, sophmorically bawdy look at early radio without the rose colored glasses. You won't go wrong with this choice.

    Will Montgomery is a successful professional football player and seemingly has it all. He’s not used to being told no, and certainly doesn’t take no for an answer. So when he turns his charms on his sister’s sexy rocker-chick friend Meg, he’s not only turned down, but met with open hostility, piquing his curiosity and libido.

    What would have made Play with Me better?

    If you' can't get enough of body art and piercings, this is the book for you. I don't mind reading about a character with tats and piercings, but I was bored of hearing about her love affair with her piercing before the end of the third chapter. By the fifth, I called it a loss and bought another book.

    A fatally dangerous man...and the woman who stands in the way of all he's ever desired. Beautiful and ruthless, the elegant assassin Allegreto will stop at nothing to regain his rightful place. And the perfect instrument has just fallen into his hands, in the lovely form of Lady Elena - the long-lost princess of the land he intends to wrest back from his enemies. But she is no mere maiden to be possessed.

    What would have made Shadowheart better?

    I usually love Kinsale... I bought this because I occasionally like to read fantasy lit. Magical worlds. But if you aren't a serious devotee of S and M, the "love" scenes will make you ill and leave you empty. I couldn't finish the book. These scenes are long, numerous, and quite graphic... and it's harder to skip ahead with an audio book than a hard copy of the text.

    To secure her family's alliance with the powerful Clan Mackenzie, Stella Morrison has no choice but to wed the notorious Kade Mackenzie. Unable to ignore the whispers that surround him, she resigns herself to a marriage in name only. Yet as the fierce warrior strips away Stella's doubt one seductive touch at a time, burgeoning desire forces her to question all she holds as truth. Leading a rebellious army should have been Kade's greatest challenge... but conquering the heart of his reluctant bride becomes an all-consuming need.

    DARA says: "Wow! I wasn't expecting this much sensuality!"

    Would you try another book from Juliette Miller and/or Gemma Johansson?

    no. I'm not a psychologist, but even I know that people who have been physically abused as children do not enjoy being "whipped" as adults. I personally don't understand why anyone would get off on being abused, but I know for a fact that adults who were abused as children flee from violent physical contact of any kind. Even football, wrestling. Some of the passages in this book made me ill....

    Judith Hampton was as beautiful as she was proud and loyal. Her dear Scottish friend from childhood was about to give birth, and Judith had promised to be at her side. But there was another reason for the journey from her bleak English home to the Highlands: to meet the father she had never known, the Laird Maclean. Nothing prepared her, however, for the sight of the Scottish barbarian who was to escort her into his land...Iain Maitland, laird of his clan, a man more powerfully compelling than any she had ever encountered.

    Charming. Some truly memorable lines. Great dialogue. Can't wait for the next one.

    Ninth in the series, Undead and Unfinished finds Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor slogging her way through the Book of the Dead. When Lucifer offers to give up all the book’s secrets, Betsy is intrigued. But there’s a catch, of course. For her part of the bargain, Betsy must take her half-sister, Laura, to Hell, so Laura can develop an appreciation for her dark heritage.

    Coby says: "Half a book"
    "if you loved the others, you'll love this one"
    Overall

    I was reluctant to purchase this one after reading the reviews. But I personally thought this one showed more imagination than the last 2. Yes, I've read all 9. And I'll probably keep listening to them as long as Mary Janice wants to write them. Escapism.

    Adrianna Moore has just had a double shock: the death of her father and the discovery that he has left his entire estate to his lawyer. The lawyer, a repulsive social climber, tells her that to regain her inheritance, she must marry him "a week from Sunday". Adrianna takes off, driving desperately to a new life.

    Hannah says: "Boo Narrator"

    Overall

    This book HAS to be read again. The accents, inflections made for a painful experience. I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing.

    Daisy Minor is bored. Worse than that, she's boring. A plain, small-town librarian, she's got a wardrobe as sexy as a dictionary and hasn't been on a date in years. She's never even had a lukewarm love affair, let alone a hot one. So when she wakes up on her 34th birthday, she begins transforming herself into a manhunting party girl. But one night she sees something she shouldn't - and suddenly she becomes the target of a killer.

    Fun. Well written. I think you'll really like this selection.

    Dean Robillard is the Chicago Stars' hotshot quarterback. Not only does he have lightening reflexes on the field, he is also utterly gorgeous. First seen in the critically acclaimed Match Me If You Can, Dean is trying to recover (both mentally and physically) from a shoulder injury by taking a road trip. Along the way he meets Blue, a beautiful woman down on her luck, and as they spend more time together their attraction grows.

    With starvation stalking in 1915 Alaska, Leah welcomes her brother Jacob's dogsled full of supplies. But not until she unwraps the scarf-covered sled driver does she realize she's been embracing Jacob's friend Jayce, the man who broke her heart a decade ago. Although she insists that Jacob get rid of Jayce immediately, a sudden snow storm and a disabling injury delay his departure.

    Audrey says: "Loved this book, but can't find the second book"
    "Give it a try!"

    I don't think you'll be disappointed. Very well written. This is not your average "inspirational" offering.

    Set in the Regency period, this is a classic tale of misunderstood love and an arranged marriage.

    just finished reading an Edith Wharton novel when she decided to write this book. Am I the only one who sees any similarities in style and outlook? This book obliterates the romantic ideal of first love and arranged marriages! Try it. I thought that it was well worth the $$.
