Looking for opinions

I was checking out the list of recommendations I have at Amazon and they recommended a whole lot of books I've never heard of by authors I've never heard of. Some of them look pretty good so if any one has read any of these - what did you think? Would it be worth it?














These all appeal to me in one way or another, so I'm wondering if they are worth tracking down since I don't think any of them made it to the shelves here. Odd that I've never heard of any of these, yet at the same time almost scary how many of the ones Amazon recommended I already had.

'til later

Wow, I haven't heard of any of them either, although McCoy sounds familiar.

I've heard of Temperature's Rising -- I checked it out at the library and returned it unfinished. I don't remember it being bad, just sort of ~meh~. I couldn't tell you the characters' names now, so it didn't make a huge impression.

I try to read RT from cover to cover, obviously I'm doing a lousy job, I've never heard of any of these.

If you get them let us know good/bad...

I'd probably read the Karen Kelley and Judi McCoy ones... I've read some of their stuff in the past and they were pretty good. the others, I've never heard of.

My eyes have been damaged by that second cover. I'm shocked you are even contemplating buying that book!

Like most, I have not heard of these guys. I just Amazon'd McCoy because I thought she sounded familiar - she's been published by Avon - aren't they your favorite publisher - evah!!!

Cindy: see what appeals to me about the second one is the female cover model believe it or not, is the spitting image of Krisite!

Helen A. Rosburg is the owner of Medallion Press (the publishing company that publishes her books) and I have not had good luck with her books. I personally find the writing a little stilted and wooden, but you may have other feelings.

Judi McCoy writes romantic comedy and she is absolutely delightful and hysterical in person, which I think translates into her books.

And none of the other books or authors look familiar right off-hand

Which Kristie was that?

Hehehe. Okay, me bad but I couldn't resist.

Hey, I've seen myself on the occasional cover but, you know, there haven't been all that many Picasso type covers on romances . . . (VBG)

Bev - no, it's Krisite - my alter ego :-)

She's the brave one of the two of us. And she's tall and blond and guys really want her.

And she jogs.

Ah, well played grasshopper ;)

Okay, I loved Kirsite for her bitchy ways but, long, lean, blonde and beautiful? I may have to hunt her down ;)

LOL Cindy - since she JOGS you probably couldn't catch her.
