What Deanna Read #91: November 2023

Hey, did you know it's almost the end of the year? Crazy, huh? I can't believe it and I'm. Not. Ready. Still a heap of work to do. I can't complain, work has been good. Important when one works for oneself. But it has severely cut into my reading time.

Aside from that, how are y'all doing? And here's what I read for the last month.

The Royal by Susan Stoker
The Royal
Dangerous Secrets by Lisa Marie Rice
I Spy by Cassie Mint
I Spy
Dangerous Passion by Lisa Marie Rice


Fake and Don't Tell by Rebel Bloom
Fake and Don't Tell
Rockstar Daddy by Sarah Blake
Rockstar Daddy
Take My Daddy, I'll Take Yours by Jenika Snow
Take My Daddy, I'll Take Yours
The Hero She Needs by Anna Hackett
The Hero She Needs


Heal Me Daddy by Laylah Roberts
Heal Me Daddy





This was probably the least books read in a month since I've started keeping track of my reading like that. Only nine books and two of them were, sadly, duds. Let's just say that I'm glad they were either free or in Kindle Unlimited or I'd have been rather annoyed.

A few rereads for me. I've been in kind of a weird slump where nothing new is holding my attention. Mostly, I think, because of the current trends of monsters, kink, and smut are not to my taste. I'm falling back on old favorites and rediscovering Lisa Marie Rice. I originally read her back in about 2011 during ye olde Ellora's Cave days. Who remembers that? Anyway, her books have been a joy recently and I've been loving them. Plus, it's been so long, I've forgotten most of it. Best of all? It's stood the test of time.

Of course, I'm still on a Laylah Roberts binge, so I'm still reading her.

And if Anna Hackett releases a book, I'll read it. Plus her new book, The Hero She Needs is wonderful. It's what I would call, Classic Anna Hackett. All the action and all the steaminess, plus sensible characters I love. Read it. Read it.

Throw in a little Cassie Mint, and that's my very short reading month.

That's it from me. What did you read in November?

Stay tuned for what Helen read too. It's coming. Soon...

    1. Hey Gill, I'm curious. Did you ever read Susan Stoker? What do you think of her?

      Also, yeah, Ellora's Cave. They were super raunchy. Lisa Marie Rice is steamy with a side of romantic suspense which really works for me. I'm enjoying them a great deal. Her men are such a throwback to when they were super alpha without it being dark like they are today, and I'm loving it.

  4. I don't think I've read Susan Stoker, certainly not since 2006 when I started my spreadsheet! Weird about the disappearing post! Ghost in the machine!

    1. I think I'm done with her. She has this thing where she writes from the point of view of the bad guy and that's creepy as all get out. Not for me.
