What I have read recently

Daniel's Bride by Linda Lael Miller
Jolie McKibben figured that when a woman has to choose between death and marriage to a total stranger, she must be in a desperate predicament. And Jolie, standing under the hot sun with a noose around her neck, surely was. But something--the defiant lift of her chin or her frightened blue-green eyes-had caught the attention of Daniel Beckham. He stopped the hanging by invoking the town's wedding ordinance and married the pretty "outlaw" on the spot.

So Joke's hide was saved ...only her pride was wounded! Daniel didn't believe she was innocent, and he barely spoke on the drive out to his farm. Worse still, two desperados were on her trail, and she didn't dare confide her troubles to her new husband. Yet under the star-splashed Western sky, Jolie trembled whenever this rugged giant of a man came near. Now she hungered for his kisses, dreamed of his touch, and knew she would do anything a woman could to win his love--to be, with her body and her soul, truly Daniel's bride.

This was a very good book. I enjoy Linda's stories very much.
Tomorrow I will share what is in my to be read pile. I have a mixture of some new books and some thats been out for a while. I hope everyone had a good weekend.

Saturday evening

I unfortunately didn't get to do my reading challenges that I signed up for. I endend up working a lot of hours and then my husband was diagnosed with diabetes. These last few months have been busy for me. It been interesting to figure out what to cook for my husband. I have learned that he can have fried food as long as it is fried in olive oil or canola oil. Hopefully someone will do the reading challenges again this year and I will have time to participate in them. I was really looking forward to the ones that I was supposed of did last year.
