An oldie but goodie!

I don't know if any of you enjoy series romance, but I recently read one that is worth talking about. Harlequin Presents has reissued numerous titles from the 90s and I've been making a point to stay away from them, preferring more current, updated reading. There was one title, THE PRICE OF A BRIDE by Michelle Reid that had so many interesting reviews that I couldn't resist.


The characters in this book are incredibly well-written and their story is unique. There was a little more love/hate than I typically have patience for, but overall this is a very good book, with an interesting storyline. The heroine is the character who is tortured, and although I wanted to give the characters a swift kick a couple of times, I stayed up late last night to read and finished it on my lunch break today. I recommend this book for romance lovers.
Are any of you fans of series romance?  I enjoy the Presents and Desire lines. They're quick reads and I always find the happily ever after satisfying.
What's everybody reading these days?

I agree Laurie. I love to read Presents and Desires in between review books. They are pure enjoyment and escapism! And usually these two lines are well written and not so over the top.

I just read Caroline Fyfee's Texas Twilight and really enjoyed it, reading an older Lisa Kleypas right now.

I DO ENJOY THESE QUICK READS. THEY ARE PERFECT WHEN YOU'RE ON THE GO AND HAVE TO WAIT FOR AN APPOINTMENT OR WAIT FOR SOMEONE. I TOO LIKE THE PRESENTS LINE AS IT TAKES ME OUT OF THE USA TO MORE EXOTIC LOCALES. DESIRES, BLAZES AND TEMPTATIONS ..VERY SEXY READS.
OOPS too lazy to rewrite.

I occasionally read the Super Romances and the Romantic Suspenses. Recently discovered the Inspirational line. I like to fit a selection to my mood.
