Friday Reads

I love Friday. It means that come 5pm it's the weekend and I can really lose myself in a book. And since it's Friday I thought that we could talk about our plans for reading this weekend. What? You don't know what you're going to read? Don't worry! I'll help you find something good. As for me... What am I reading? I just recieved a bunch of books in the mail to review for The Season for Romance and first up is Bastian by Elizabeth Amber. And have you seen this cover...

Hello hotness!!

Well since you can't read Bastian just yet (release date April 26) I wanted to see what everyone plans on reading. What?!? You don't know?!? Well, let me help you.

In the next few weeks and months I want to do some posts on my favorite books and books that have brought me to another level emotionally when reading them. But that's for another post. So if you're looking for something to read you've found the right place. So here are my suggestions for a weekend of FUN reading:

You like historicals? Well have you read How to Marry a Duke by Vicky Dreiling? Think The Bachelor but during the Recency. I love finding new authors and let me just say that I had such a good time reading this book that I read it in 2 nights, staying up WAY past my bedtime.

Not into men in breeches? Prefer your men from this century, perhaps in a hockey uniform? While I suggest anything by Rachel Gibson one of my favorites is See Jane Score. I love when the bad boys fall in love.

A few days ago I told you that I had started reading Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning. Well I finished it and if you haven't read it then this weekend is a great time to start. Mac is a trip to read! So if you want that paranormal fix Darkfever is it.

So tell me... What do you plan on reading this weekend? Do you have any fun plans?

What I'm Reading

What am I reading? So kind of you to ask! I'm reading Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning.

(Click on Cover for more info)

I have a tendency of procrastinating. When someone suggests a book and tells me I HAVE to read it I will get said book, but then it sits on my desk for a few months until I pick it up. I don't know why I do this, I did the same thing with a certain other paranormal series *cough* Black Dagger Brotherhood *cough* that I am now addicted too. And even though I'm only 3/4 the way through I'm kicking myself for not reading it sooner. I predict the Fever Series will moving up my TBR pile.

So, here are my thoughts so far:
  • I'm pretty sure Mac is my long lost sister
  • Jericho Barrons is a very intriguing man and I want to know why
  • I am loving Mac's relationship with Barrons and how he addresses her as "Ms. Lane"
  • Dublin has moved down my "Places to See Before I Die" list (ok, not really)
Well, I'm going to go finish my book and see what other trouble Mac get's herself into. But tell me:

What are you reading? Is there something that I HAVE to read?

Happy Reading!

Man Candy Monday

Today is Monday which means that it's Man Candy Monday here at For the Love of Romance. What is Man Candy Monday you ask? Well allow me to show you some visuals.

Ian Somehalder is Man Candy

Matt Bomer is Man Candy

Now that I have your attention, let me tell you how this all started... It was a dark and stormy night, well, not really. This all started on Twitter a few weeks ago when Vicky Dreiling, fabulous author of How to Marry a Duke (you should read it!) was talking about how Henry Cavill was her muse for her hero Tristian. Next thing I know is that there are pictures of Henry Cavill all in my Twitter feed , something I am sooo not complaining about, and we were planning a Henry Cavill night. But our love of hot men knows no bounds and on the second Henry Cavill night all hotness broke loose and there pictures of hot men everywhere! That's when Man Candy Monday was born.

So if you like looking at hot men and want to share you're favorites you should come and join Rita (Not Another Romance Blog), Kati (Romancing Rakes), Vicky and myself on Twitter tonight. Use #ManCandyMonday at 9pm EST 6pm PST and all the hours in between.

Here's your invite ladies!

And because I can't stop myself...

Oh, Henry Cavill. How I love thee!
