I don't know what came over me but I went to Walmart to get some popcorn and managed to come out of there with MacLean's PORTRAIT OF A LOVER and Jeffries's NEVER SEDUCE A SCOUNDREL. I forgot the popcorn. They were $10 together and I couldn't resist. Never mind the fact that I'm broke and I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more books 'til next week. Argh!
I haven't opened the books yet...they're still sitting in a small plastic Walmart bag. Sabrina Jeffries is a favorite of mine and MacLean...well, she has disappointed me in the past, but the book sounded decent, so I thought I would give her another chance. I hope she redeems herself with this book because if she fucks up one more time, I'm taking her off my TO BUY list.
I finished reading Julie Garwood's PRINCE CHARMING. The book was just blah; it gave me none of the warm and fuzzy feelings REBELLIOUS DESIRE did. It just plain sucked! It was about 200 pages too long; the hero and heroine didn't really do it for me. They weren't silly or spineless or dimwitted by any means, so I didn't really have that to hold against them. They just seemed like a regular couple; there was no real conflict, except for a villain you only really encounter at the end of the book for about two pages. I was more interested in the secondary love story. Big disappointment. Don't bother reading it.
