Reading: The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown
Listening to: Michael Buble
Making me smile: My hubby fixed our Xbox
I decided to comb my keeper bookshelf for some of my favourite category books from when I first fell in love with category romance. Some of them are rather old and the books themselves are falling apart (probably because I’ve re-read them so much!)
Harlequin are now digitizing many books from their backlist, so these awesome books will always be available as ebooks—which don’t fall apart after multiple re-reads (-:
Here are some of my favs:
Nora Roberts – The MacKade Brothers
Return of Rafe MacKade, Pride of Jared MacKade, Heart of Devin MacKade and Fall of Shane Mackade. I LOVE these super sexy brothers! My fav is Rafe’s story.
Linda Howard – The Mackenzies
Mackenzie’s Mountain, Mackenzie’s Mission, Mackenzie’s Pleasure, Mackenzie’s Magic, A Game of Chance. Another family of super sexy males. My fav is the first story, Mackenzie’s Mountain.
Merline Lovelace – Code Name Danger
Night of the Jaguar, The Cowboy and the Cossack, Undercover Man and Perfect Double.
The suspense series continued on (which I didn’t know until about a year or so ago) but the original four are still my favs.
Raintree Trilogy by Linda Howard, Linda Winstead Jones and Beverly Barton
Raintree: Inferno, Raintree: Haunted and Raintree: Sanctuary. Okay, these Nocturnes are more recent but they are on my keeper shelf.
Strange Bedpersons by Jennifer Crusie
It wasn’t until I fished this fav book out a few years ago that I realized it was written by Jennifer Crusie!
The Winning Hand by Nora Roberts (Macgregors)
I love lots of the Macgregor books but this is one I pick up again and again. What is it with my fav category featuring families whose names start with Mac?
I know I have a stash of category keepers at my parents’ place with some of my fav standalone category books. I bet when I finally get that box back, it’ll feel like Christmas! I remember a sheikh book set in Morocco (heroine was a horse trainer) that I read a thousand times and plenty of great cowboy stories.
Big congrats to the R*byCats (Sharon and Tracey!) Your books will become keepers too.
So, what fav category keepers live on your bookshelf?
