Dear Author Recommends for May

Can you believe it? We are five months into 2010. That seems almost impossible. In any event, here is a list of books that the DA crew enjoyed this month:

Jane Litte is the founder of Dear Author, a lawyer, and a lover of pencil skirts. She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com

    Mistress by Mistake is also free on Kindle right now.

    If you don’t have a Kindle, there’s Kindle for PC as well, so it’s worth grabbing a free book.

    I don’t want to turn this into all about me (oh, who am I kidding?), but Mistress by Mistake is also free on Sony Reader. It was free on nook, but no longer.The free downloads end tonight, I believe, although Sony was a day late posting, so who knows? The links are on my blog.

    I can’t thank you enough for including my book on this great list! I’m reading Nothing but Trouble right now.

    I found Wicked Becomes You to be very enjoyable.

    I enjoyed Savor the Moment by Nora Roberts; her “groups of heroines” series are favorites of mine, and it’s nice to enjoy her straight contemporary writing, without the paranormal or suspense elements. (Not that I mind those, necessarily, but she writes fun books without them.)

    I’m also really enjoying another contemporary romance, How to Knit a Love Song by Rachael Herron. I hunted it down b/c I met Rachael socially and wanted to read her book; if I hadn’t been looking I wouldn’t have found it, since Borders has it shelved with literary fiction, not romance. I’ve been assured that it has a happy romantic ending, and I really like the writing and characters so far.
