The Highlander - Kerrigan Byrne
I checked off "man in a kilt" with this one, lots of options should I need to shift for better coverage later. Lots of ppl seem to really like this one. It was OK to me, but not much more. 12. Man in a Kilt - The Highlander / Kerrigan Byrne Everything in this book is incredibly overstated and dramatic, provoking much eye-rolling and laughter at the text on my part. I haven't read many traditional bodice-rippers, but I feel like this embraces much of the hyperbole and drama of one. Best thing about this book is that the atrocities of the first two chapters are largely contained to those two chapters, otherwise I would have likely not bothered to finish this one. This could also potentially fulfill Love is Murder (it comes up), Eyeshadow and Heaving Bosom (at least the Heaving Bosom part), Blown Away (cover art), Rogue (main interest is known as the Demon Highlander, that counts in my book), Wedding Bells (for the ending), and Second Chances (for both of the main characters). 1.

Young Adult - Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit / Jaye Robin Brown I really liked this one, and I generally have a really low threshold for religion (especially fundamentalist Christianity) in my pleasure reading. I do think it's a really good book for lesbian youth who are struggling to reconcile their sexuality with their faith, but I struggle a bit with quite how liberal the evangelist dad is. 7.

Key to my Heart - Hard Rhythm / Cecilia Tan Going a bit tongue-in-cheek here, but I feel like "Key to my Heart" is appropriate for a BDSM erotic romance. See the link for my full review, pretty hot series, but this is definitely my least favorite addition. All my favorite parts had nothing to do with the relationship or sexy times... and it's an erotic romance novel, so... 22. Pirates Argh 23. Guy/Girl Next Door 24. Interracial Couple 25.
