Books that I might read while lounging on the beach:
The Betrayal by Pati Nagle: fantasy, RWA book
Her One Desire by Kimberly Killion: historical, RWA book
Rescue Me by Christy Reece: romantic suspense/adventure, RWA book
Lord of Pleasure by Delilah Marvelle: historical, RWA book
Nightkeepers by Jessica Andersen: paranormal, not a RWA book but picked up from HPB because I got the second book of the series at RWA and must read in order
Written on Your Skin by Meredith Duran: historical, not RWA book
Demon Bound by Meljean Brook: paranormal, pulled off the TBR pile
Mistress of the Art of Death by Arianna Franklin: mystery, pulled off the TBR pile A+ Packing the Heat by Penny McCall: romantic suspense, RWA book (DNF) Hill Country Christmas by Laurie Kingery: historical inspiractional, RWA book (DNF: characters blathering about god providing when the heroine is destitute hit a really sore spot for me; their attitude was, don’t you worry, honey, god will fix things and you’ll be taken care of. Screw that — take care of yourself without expecting miracles.)
Also, I am a moron. Bought a 1,000 piece puzzle of "Las Meninas" specifically to do while on vacation at the beach. I’m at the beach. Where is the puzzle? On the table at home, where I left sitting out so I wouldn’t forget to pack it. Dammit.
Also: Dear Atlantic Ocean, I have missed you. I never realize how much until I can smell the ocean air, then feel the sand under my feet and the shriek of gulls and pounding of waves.
