I Couldn't Wait

I was supposed to be saving this book for an upcoming beach getaway, but I'd heard so much good buzz about it, I took it with me on our trip to Hotrod's cousin's wedding.

On our drive up, I decided to pull it out and read the first few pages while Hotrod was talking on his crackberry. Many pages later, I had no desire to put it down. I didn't expect it to be funny! The Leopard Prince has to be one of the most entertaining books I've read this year. I finished it on the drive home. Delish!

I hope to pick up the first book, The Raven Prince, in this series next time I'm at the bookstore. (The third, The Serpent Prince, comes on out on Sept. 1st, I believe.)

Last night, after we got home and collapsed from the exhausting 8 hour drive (which included an hour of sitting in traffic backed up by a jack-knifed 18-wheeler), I started JR Ward's Dark Lover. Yes, I know I'm waaaaaaaay behind the curve on reading this series, but I'm not a big vamp fan. I'm still reserving judgement on this first book, but I'm only a few pages in.

Anyway, The Leopard Prince is a great read! If you like historicals (or even if they're not your usual go-to genre), give this one a try.


  1. Sounds good. I'll see if I can find a copy. Sorry to hear about the traffic jam thingie. I hate those.

    I just finished reading an awesome book myself. Stray by Rachel Vincent. It's an urban fantasy/paranormal romance kind of thing, but no vampires. She's written a book about werecats. Too cool.

    Enjoy your books. =o)

  2. I told you so.

    Hmmm. Beach getaway...doesn't that just sound lovely?

  3. Glad you made it back safe and sound.
    The Leopard Prince, huh?
    I'll have to check it out. :)
