Looking For A Good Book?

I popped over to Paula Graves weblog a couple days ago to see if I could win an autographed copy of her new book "Forbidden Territory".

Though I didn't win, I knew I had to have to book. So two days ago, I grabbed a copy (the LAST copy) at WalMart while I was shopping.

I started reading it and couldn't put it down. I gave it to my mom yesterday and she finished it last night. Both of us are pretty picky readers.

This book was fabulous. What's it about? I'm so glad you asked:

For Lily Browning, there was no escaping the visions that had haunted her all her life. And now a little girl's desperate cry for help had brought enigmatic, disturbingly masculine Lieutenant McBride to her door....

McBride didn't have time for psychics. He had a kidnapper to catch. But the honey-haired woman with the golden eyes seemed to see things no one else could — including his own tragic secret. With a child's life at stake, he had to trust Lily...even as each step plunged them deeper into danger and into the uncharted territory of irresistible desire...

Yup. Another paranormal romance.

This was interesting and well written. The romance was just right -- not overdone, not underdone. The characters were interesting and well-rounded. Even better, Lily, the psychic -- she has TWO sisters who will hopefully have their own books.

A great read. I don't buy many books before I read them because I have a limited amount of space for my "keepers". This was an exception -- and it'll definitely end up on that little keeper shelf. As will the next two -- hurry up, Paula!

And if that didn't get you, check out the cover. What a hero!
