The Nerd Who Loved Me by Vicki Lewis Thompson
#7 Unlikely Hero/Heroine ~~~Rated 4 Stars
A Vegas Showgirl and a Nerdy Accountant. Match made in Heaven right? Lainie Terrel finds herself on the run with Harry Ambrewster. I totally loved this couple. The chemistry was Hot, and the entire cast of characters were so much fun. Outside of the villain, there was not a character I didn't love. I will read more about Ms. Thompson's nerds!
MacKenzie's Mission by Linda Howard
#4 Title published before 2000 ~~~Rated 3.75 Stars
I have definately a mixed opinion of this book. I loved Joe MacKenzie sooo much from MacKenzie's Mountain. He was 16, and so interesting. However, fast forward and He wasn't all that intersting to me. I liked him, but didn't see the depth in him that I'd seen from him previously. I liked Caroline so much though. I found her complex and tough, but with that soft vulnerability that was so appealing. I figured out some of the mystery, but that is fine with me. I don't particularly like mystery, so for me it is more about how are they going to resolve it.

This was my final list. I finally gave in and started the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I loved it! I ended up adding them to my challenge list, because I didn't want to read anything but the BDB for a while. I had a lot of good titles and some that I thought I would like but didn't. I didn't care for Dreamfever. It had no, None, romance in it.
