I finished Lush Velvet Nights by Tina Donahue - it was very touching and very hot! Her writing reminds me a little of Beth Kery's.
And I read Flowers from the Storm by Laura Kinsale. Or should I say I devoured this book. I LOVED it. I sobbed my way through the ending. It really is amazing. The way she wrote from the hero's point of view and conveyed his difficulties was so well done - a hero who's damaged but still strong and dominant. It was a little difficult to relate to Maddie's inner conflict, which was her religious views, but I'm sure that was also very accurate for that time. She frustrated me in her lack of understanding about why the Duke was doing what he was, when he was trying to save himself. Very moving and poignant.
