Why do I have it? I like Christine Feehan as an author

For my #15 challenge (backlist from a favorite author), I read Dark Gold by Christine Feehan. Alexandria Huton is near death when she, and her little brother, Joshua, are found by vampire hunter Aidan Savage. He saves them from a terrible fate, but in the process Alex is changed forever.

Now, she is swept into the dark world of the Carpathians - struggling with near vampiric urges and a lethargy that strikes during the day. Only Aidan, as her lifemate, can help. But can she trust him when her brother is kidnapped by a vampire bent on Aidan's destruction.

I really liked this story. Alexandria was a strong, capable woman and Aidan was extremely likable (in a 'medieval…

Why do I have it? I won a giveaway at Cherry's site for the best books ever.

For my #4 Challenge ('F' Word For Fall), I read Fantasy Lover by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Julian of Macedon was every woman's fantasy: tall, broad-shouldered and sexy as anything. It seemed that he would have any man's fantasy: any woman he wanted. However, for thousands of years he had been cursed to live inside a Greek spell book and fulfill every woman's deepest fantasies at the cost of his own - a woman and a family to love him.

Grace Alexander is a sex therapist whose friend believes needs a seriously sexy birthday present - a Greek love-slave to fulfill her every need for a mont…
