which should I read next?

At The Duke's Wedding (A romance anthology)I’m nearly finished with the final novella in the At the Duke’s Wedding anthology.  (My favorite of the entire collection was Caroline Linden’s “When I Met My Duchess.”  I really wanted more of that story or a sequel or something. :may21 )

So it’s time to decide what to read next, & I’ve got three books on my immediate To Be Read pile to choose from.  The problem is, it’s too hard to choose! :may17

Bared to You (Crossfire Series #1)Option #1 — Making an encore appearance from the last time I couldn’t decide what to read next, Bared to You by Sylvia Day is still hovering there, tempting me. :may18

The First Prophet (Bishop/Special Crimes Unit Series #14)Option #2 — Then there’s Kay Hooper’s The First Prophet.  This one has been calling to me for quite a while & I always enjoy a good Kay Hooper romantic suspense. :may4

Fired Up: Book One of the Dreamlight Trilogy (Arcane Society Series #7)Option #3 — Fired Up by Jayne Ann Krentz.  Another one that’s been staring at me for much too long.  And again, I always love a hot & sexy JAK. :may26

Of course, this is the first of a series & I’m not sure how soon I’ll be able to get to the rest of the series, so…do I really want to jump into that?  But then, I’m not a stickler for reading a series all in a row & sometimes not even in order unless it’s really, really necessary.  (Like with Laurell K. Hamilton’s “Anita Blake” or “Meredith Gentry” series.)

It’s a nail-biting proposition.  If only I could read all three of them at once! :may34

But until I acquire that particular super power, how about you guys chime in with which book you think I should read next.

    I’d probably start with Fired Up, only because I really love her books and have read most of them.

      She is good, isn’t she? Always enjoy her. I’m completely behind & out of order with her different series, tho…so whenever I read her, I just go with it. :mat27 And she does a good job of making sure each book stands alone, even if it’s connected to something else.

    I m not a great decider….what ever tempts u ….

    • Heidi says:

      LOL Well, that’s my problem…they *all* tempt me. :may21

      I am leaning toward Kay Hooper at the moment, but that could change.

  3. Donna A says:

    I’ve read Fired Up and Bared to you. Fired Up is a fast paced fun read. Bared to you is really erotic. I’ve not read The First Prophet so I vote for that one so you can tell me if I need to bump it up on my TBR shelf. :may19

    • Heidi says:

      LOL Hey, that sounds like a good deal. I’m curious about the Sylvia Day, but must say erotica is not usually my cuppa tea. :may29

      I do love fast-paced, but Hooper is usually a quick read, too. Fingers crossed, anyway. :may34

      • Laura J. says:

        Sylvia is very good though. It’s a story with erotica thrown in. I’m not a big fan of sex, sex, sex, HEA. I want some meat in there. Er, by “meat” I mean “story”. :mat27

    Trust me… go with Gideon Cross.. you won’t regret it.. :may6

  5. Carrie Hinkel-Gill says:

    I was going to say Kay Hooper! 😀 :may13

  6. Brooke C says:

    I haven’t read any of them, so my advice is just to go with your gut. And remember, there really is no wrong choice – I’m sure you’ll end up loving whichever one you decide on :may14
