The first of the books for this month is Cat's Lair, by one of my favorite paranormal romance authors, Christine Feehan. This is the seventh in her Leopard Series.
"Cat Benoit has finally escaped the past—and the man who was the source of her nightmares. She’s off the grid, underground but watchful, and creating a new life for herself in Texas, far from the torrid dangers of her native New Orleans. She’s safe. He’ll never find her this time. Cat has to believe that. It’s the only thing keeping her sane."
Lori Wilde's stories have a real sense of her Texas roots; they make you feel good when you read them. The Rules of the Game, will definitely draw you in and have you rooting for Jodi and Jake.
"I love Lori Wilde's stories. She makes you laugh, cry, and anticipate the outcome of the story. This is the second book in the Stardust, Texas series. Jodi Carlyle and Jake Coronado both have stuff in their backgrounds where they have been hurt and hold onto those hurts. They learn from each other and grow as a couple. You will enjoy this series. I highly recommend anything by Lori Wilde." - Reader Review (The Rules of the Game)

She might be young, but she knows Jason is the only man for her. Kate wants him more than anything, but he offers her only brotherly protection—until she discovers that Jason's desire for her is as strong as hers for him."
Beloved, a oldie, but a goodie and one of Diana Palmer's Long, Tall Texans series, is definitely a must read if you haven't read it, and it is worth rereading if you have.

Against his will, Simon became entranced by her, her every gesture igniting his passion. Still, he knew the virtuous virgin wasn't about to surrender her nights to him . . . unless he became her beloved!"If you haven't read my own Silver Bella, I think you'll find Jake to be a long tall drink of water in the best Texas cowboy style and Bella just type of woman to tame him.
