In My Own Words:
A good book is one that makes you laugh, cry, wiggle off your seat and should have an embarrassing emotional guide rating on so that it warns you about reading it in public.

Interests
I am a creative person and so likes reading into peoples imaginations. To create a world that inspires the real one is a powerful thing. I also love regency, jane austin style romance as I love that era of time.

Much Obliged (Zebra Historical Romance) by Jessica Benson
4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasing Read, 19 July 2007
I got this book from my local library and I found it very 'Obliging' to read.

4.0 out of 5 stars not her best, 10 July 2007
I did find this book mostly enjoyable but having read her 'Two Little Lies' which I found excellent. I found this emotionally lacking and the plot less appealing in comparrison - it didn't capture my nerves and keep me surprisingly engrossed as I expected.
Cam and Helene as the main characters I found weren't as strong, the passion between them seemed too laid back.
Overall it still is a nice read but not one from Liz that will leave you overwhelmed.
Love Match (Zebra Regency Romance) by Maggie MacKeever
4.0 out of 5 stars Snappy little story, 10 July 2007
This is the first book I have read by this author and was happily pleased by her and will be seeing what others I can get my eyes into.
This book had a snappy, very charming tale of a newly wed couple-a thirty something Duke and Elizabeth a young hopless innocent. Both humorously misinterpret each others feelings of lust and every time they try to open up in walks the Dukes ex wife, this is also made impossibly awkward by his mistress and his cousin all invading their hooneymoon and their much needed privacy. I found it nicely funny how their friends and family's meddling makes them battle to resist instead of give-in to their much needed honeymoon night.
