Backlist titles and rereads: I picked up To Steal a Heart by Kate Bateman because it was free on the 'zon and then ended up buying book two, A Raven's Heart. While the two titles whet my appetite for historicals with spies, they didn't quite land for me. So I went back to two old favorites, Joanna Bourne's Forbidden Rose and The Black Hawk for a reset. Then, Romance Twitter led me to another historical reread — Lorraine Heath's The Earl Takes All and some new-to-me titles from Lisa Kleypas' backlist, Where Dreams Begin, Worth Any Price, and Stranger in My Arms. Last, but not least, in the spirit of Halloween, I read The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson.
Currently reading: Some Winter's Evening by Erin Langston.
