Some books I've read and would recommend:

The Monk Downstairs--Tim Farrington--A sweet, thoughtful novel about a man who leaves a monastery after 20+ years and moves into a single mom's extra apartment. I liked it a lot, not just because of the story of the relationship, but because of the discussion of faith and forgiveness.

White Night--Jim Butcher--Harry Dresden is back, he's still kicking paranormal ass, and I laughed out loud at some of the noirish one liners. A series that's holding its own.

The Leopard Prince--Elizabeth Hoyt--Sure, there were some major logic problems, but I loved the dialog and the overall writing style. She's fast moving up to my autobuy list.

Burning Bright--Janine Ashbless--An erotic romance in the Black Lace line. It's a fantasy set in a milieu with overtones of India and the far East, and was quite well done. The erotic element blended well with the story, and I never felt like I was being bludgeoned with sex scenes interspersed with inadequate plot and dialog.

The Taste of Night--Vicki Pettersson--Pettersson is hot, hot, hot, and her Zodiac series delivers with superhero/supervillain action in a city made for people in tights and flashy costumes, Las Vegas.
