Recent Acquisitions

I know that it is normally Mailbox Monday, but I went to the Used Book Store and found a number of super cool books. Some that I've been looking for and some that I've just found but have heard great things about. I also got a couple from Paperbackswap. So today is Acquisition day.

I got Nalini Singh's Slave to Sensation. Luckily for me it's also first in the series. I've heard such great things about this series. I can't wait.

I also got, So Into You by Sandra Hill. It's the latest one in her Cajun Series. It's Grace (retired nun) and Angel's (a biker and ex-poker champion) story. We met them in Pink Jinx and were reunited with them in Wild Jinx.

I found Dreaming of You by Lisa Kleypas at the UBS. I've only read one of her historicals but have heard some great things about it. Found out it's 2nd in a series, and am hoping to not need to read them in order. I also intend to use this for the Fall 09 Readers of Romance Challenge.

I got The Reluctant Viking by Sandra Hill. I like Sandra Hill and have only read one of her Viking Books before. It was ok, but I am hoping that by reading them in order, I'll like this one even better.

The Frasers: Clay was recommended to me since I've been Jonesing for a western. I've never read Ana Leigh, but am so looking forward tothis one. Sounds fun.

Dangerous Heart by Tracey Bateman is a book, I'd almost forgotten about. I'd read the first 2 in the series so long ago, I'd lost track of time. This is the final book in the wagon train series and I understand it's the most gritty. That's kinda hard to do in inspirational romances.

I love your aquisition post. Please don't be offended if I "borrow" the idea on my blog. I find that I get at least a dozen new books every month and would love to highlight them on my blog.
