  1. Hello!

    I think I told you that I started off with book #8 “The Promise in a Kiss”. Well, that one certainly wet my appetite and there I went on to the next one, “Devil’s Bride”. I also agree with your review of both of those books.

    The third installment, “A Rake’s Vow” left me scratching my head. I skipped most of the book as it was just too predictable and sooooo slow.

    “Scandal’s Bride” came next and it sort of gave me hope and determination to continue with this series (I mean, now I just had to read them…I invested almost $70, right?). Scandal’s story was a bit unique, and kept a good pace. Next please!

    “A Rogue’s Proposal” had me JUMPING with excitement! Now, this one was, in my estimation, the BEST of them all, so far. I feel that SL has taken her sweet time in developing the characters of Flick, Demon and their romance, and it shows through the book. H & H interact so well with each other, that they FEEL ‘real’. Flick and her innocence are so refreshing and Harry is such a great and true Hero. It was pure joy reading of a man of such sophistication and experience, who gets completely blindsided with innocence. I also thought that the love scenes in this book were one of her best written EVER and tackled with care. They were not too long or too short. They were just right and actually made you want to keep on reading. This book had me hooked from the first page and I hardly noticed it was over. That’s how well written it was.

    “A Secret Love” came and went. I honestly didn’t like it. Enough said-NEXT!

    So here I am on finishing #9 “On a Wild Night” (Amanda’s story), after I skipped All About Love #6 and All About Passion #7. This one is too irritating, writing as well as the Heroine are just getting a bit reminiscent of the other ones and I’m thinking that I’ll try to tackle #10 “On A Wicked Dawn”. After that one, I’ll be ready for some of the new Debut writers that are out there. Bastion series I’ll try to tackle sometime next year. I’ll be skipping the Cobra series for sure………

    BTW: I also started a blog and I feel so much in the dark…..If I have any Q’s would you be willing to help me?

    Thanks 🙂

    • Of course I’d be willing to answer any questions. I’ll even put a link to it, if you want. Let me know!

      Stephanie Laurens is odd author. She’s got some fantastic books, but as the Cynster series drag on it gets a little old. There are no new ideas. She regurgitates the same story/characters over and over. I did enjoy the Bastion series, but it’s set before the Cynster series and if Devil appears, it’s briefly. It’s not a distraction to the storyline.

  2. Kathryn you are one special Lady!

    I bet you if we lived in the same town we’d be best buds!

    I’ve decided to read “All about Passion” before going to Amelia’s story (OAWD). Glad I did….

    Thanks so much for agreeing to walk me through this blog thing…. I need to know how to add a few pages like you have done: at the top you have
    Home-About-Anthologies-Authors CURRENT-Authors RETIRED

    I have only Home-About and would like to add:

    Reviews A-Z

    Then how do I add that SHARE THIS (with FB, TWEETER and the rest)

    I also don’t know how to add the category’s (you have reviewed; books; interviews; and so forth) I’d like to have same and add Movies; TV; Off Topic)

    I’m trying to figure it all out, but it’s not easy….at least for me.
    If you can walk me through this process, that be AWESOME!

  3. oops………forgot to tell you, now I’m bookworm 🙂

    my blog is:

    and yes please link me and I’ll link you too as soon as I find out how………..


  1. […] was pretty realistic and normal, also known as frustrating.   (See, this is what reading too much Stephanie Laurens does.  EVERY male character in her Cynster novels is an alpha and that drives me nuts.  Why, oh […]
