I thought Beautiful Sacrifice
was just okay as well. Like you, I've enjoyed some of her older works better. The "Donovan" series you mentioned, but especially some of her historical romances like the "Only" series, "Medieval" series and the "Maxwells" (Autumn Fire & Winter Lover). BTW, I picked up a copy of Trouble in Mudbug
from the UBS clearance rack (only $1) a while back, but have not yet read it. Have heard it's a funny series, though.
finished my reread of Little Women
. A good book, though I don't remember being quite so preachy when I was younger. The things you pick up on years later... Taking a short break from classics for a couple shorter reads before tackling Anna Karenina
by Leo Tolstoy. It was chosen as the September read by two different groups I am in at GoodReads.
Currently reading: A rom-suspense, The Marine Next Door
