Since she has a lot of series I figured I'd post a list. I have a bunch of her books but not complete series. Since I hate reading books out of order I'm going to have to hunt a few titles down before I'm in the mood for another historical romance. She really is a great author. Her books are decaden...

This cracked me up! I love it! He has some very valid points but for me all the convoluted complexity comes together in a fantastic addictive series of books.

Now when is the damned movie coming out already?? As of 09 the screen play was being written. Does anyone have any updates?

Its not so much that we have different reading preferences that gets me. Sure, some women won't touch male oriented HF but, in my experience, it's not because they feel its inferior or they're afraid to be seen reading it. Its the implication that female oriented HF is somehow inferior or not as ser...

Is it wrong that I get so annoyed when men think that reading "female" HF is beneath them? Anything that hints of being feminine seems to be something that men cannot be caught dead reading. IMO, that shows their own their own insecurities more than anything else. I love reading about romance and re...

[quote=""MLE""]Well, I'll continue on with the Doomsday Book for a while. Altho if it gets too dark, it will get jettisoned. Reading through files of modern-day slavery is plenty dark enough for me without seeking out more in fiction. My nightstand book is Mistress of Rome . I'm hoping that will hav...

LOL, poor thing! Im glad there was a happy ending though! It's interesting that you guys call them Elk. We have Elks here in the US as well but its a totally different animal. What we call an elk (does this kind of animal live in Europe?): http://www.google.com/imgres?q=elk&um=1&hl=en&sa=N&biw=925&b...

Like others have said, short stories just don't give me the epic feel of a good novel. I like to be able to immerse myself in the world the author created for a few days. That's just not possible with a short story for me.

[quote=""EC2""]I think problems arise when people don't give their dogs enough stimulation and exercise. [/quote] I agree completely! The active highly intelligent dogs are so fun.

Are they Jack Russel and Patterdale terrier crosses? If so, you must really have your hands full, lol! I love the spunky personalities of terriers. They're adorable!

[quote=""Sharz""]Sunne is completely stand alone. You can read it whenever. But I recommend starting at the beginning of the series Lionheart is in, with When Christ and His Saints Slept. The family and the politics are pretty complex. SKP does an incredible job of making it all make sense, but I'd ...
