I'm hooked...

Have found another MUST-BUY, MUST-READ, MUST-KEEP author. Well... actually she found me, cos she commented on my blog a few times and from that I hunted down her latest book, which sounded absolutely FABULOUS and didn't fail to live-up to this at all.

I've just finished reading Savas' Defiant Mistress by the lovely Anne McAllister and WOW. It's one of those books where I thought at least once on every page, 'WHY am I bothering to try and write books like these? I'll never be this good.'

It's such a gorgeous romance with a much larger cast than most category novels. It's jam-packed with animals, siblings, a wedding, father-issues and even a secondary romance. The whole story just seemed to spill from the page. The banter between the quirky heroine and Ice-man hero had me smiling constantly and just seemed so natural.

And... the premise - or how the h&H were thrown together - was one of the best I've read yet!
So thanks Anne. Thanks for stopping by my blog and thanks for writing one of the scrummiest romances I've ever read. I'm a fan for life!

So, you didn't mind it then?
I'm sold, will hunt it out ASAP with that kind of recommendation!

I am with you Becca. I am on the hunt now.

Oh no, not more books to put on my wish list :-)

Cheers, Rach, I'll blame you for the beans on toast we'll have to eat for every for the next month!!

Anne McAllister said...

Goodness! I feel like Sally Field saying, "You liked it!" I'm sooo glad you did, Rach.

And thank you for saying so. I'm glad Seb and Neely and the animals and the family and the parents touched you.

Oooh, I just got Antonides' Forbidden Wife yesterday so keen to read!

And I also got a couple of India Grey's too. Boy does she do fantastic place-setting (and no, I'm not talking about tables!). Just read one set in France and it was just...beautiful....

You can't go wrong with an Anne McAllister book!

As Lacey says, you can't go wrong with an Anne McAllister book, and Savas' Defiant Mistress is one of my all-time favourites of her. A great read - but then I wouldn't expect anything else.
