A double Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Comfort Reads by Mel & Lany

Mel’s old comfort reads in no particular order

1. Morning Glory and Years by LaVyrle Spencer. I cried when LaVyrle retired.
2. Honor Splendor by Julie Garwood
3. A Kingdom of Dreams by Judith McNaught
4. Any of the Malory family by Johanna Lindsey
5. Mackenzie’s Mountain and Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard
6. The Black Lyon by Jude Deveraux
7. Savage Destiny series by Rosanne Bittner
8. Anything by Rebecca Paisley. Rebecca will always remain queen of comedy. I was sorry to hear when she got burned out.
9. Shanna by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss. Shanna was the very first romance I ever read. Actually my senior lit teacher and my mom took turns reading it to me. I’ve been hooked ever since.
10. The Kadin by Beatrice Small. My friends, I’ve been reading romance since my senior year of high school. And let me stress. Beatrice was writing erotic romance long before it was “cool.”
11. Moondust and Madness by Janelle Taylor
12. Anything by Constance O'Day-Flannery. Constance hooked me on paranormal through her time travels.
13. Keeper of Dreams by Penelope Williamson

Lany's Comfort Reads in no particular order

1. The Stand by Stephen King--A classic. I've read it so many times since I was a teenager. And it never gets old. The characterization is wonderful.
2. Fantasy Love by Sherrilyn Kenyon--Grace could be a good friend and Julian is yummy.
3. The Lady's Tutor by Robin Schone--I never want the book to reach the end no matter how many times I reread.
4. Mrs. Mike byBenedict Freedman and Nancy Freedman--the tale of a young woman who falls in love with Canadian Mounty. It makes me laugh and makes me cry.
5. This is all I ask by Lynn Kurland--Christopher and Gillian, two troubled souls find comfort in each other. *dreamy sigh*
6. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton--I don't know how many times I read this as a teenager.
7. Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stephenson--the copy I have is battered and torn. It's the one my Dad read as a child.
8. Dark Highlander by Karen Marie Moning--has one of the hottest scenes ever written
9. Partners in Passion: No illusions by S. L. Carpenter and Sahara Kelly--Love the humor partnered with hot writing.
10. Tapestry by many--stories by Sherrilyn Kenyon, Karen Marie Moning, Lynn Kurland, and Madeline Hunter to suit any mood.
11. Strange Attractions by Emma Holly-Emma is a queen of steam.
12. Ariel by Stephen R. Boyett--a unicorn in a apocolyptic world. If only...*sigh* I won't ruin the ending. Still good though.
13. Their eyes were watching God by Zora Neale Hurston--should be a must read.
