I enjoy her books for light reading, some smut and lots of laughs.  I just adore demon doggy Jim! wolfTONGUE

Jim's great! I liked the first few Dragon Sept books with Aisling but now she's moved onto the Silver Dragon books I can't quite get into them as much.

I enjoyed the Green Dragons and Drake and Aisling and Jim, the Silver dragons were OK, sort of weird with the doppelganger thingy.  I like some of the premises tho, it's just she's not the best writer  :o, but I take it for what it is.  Light, funny reading that can sometimes break the monotony of drama and dark and dirty books I read :P

Jim is my favorite!   <32 <32  They are light and funny and a nice break between reading marathons.   paW

I actually like her contemporaries a lot more! I think they're pretty hilarious. I remember reading Improper English at three in the morning and laughing until I almost cried - really quietly so I wouldn't wake people up.

I couldn't get into the Steamed - steampunk - at all.  I don't think it's my genre.   OrDer

Luckily, it was afternoon-ish when I read Improper English.  Hubby came into the room and looked at me funny, but I didn't have to try and be quiet as I was (almost literally) ROTFLMAO. 
  Oh my God, she was retarded and I was going to kill Jim.

I didn't like Steamed at all, but I like some of her other books, for instance Blow Me Down... I think it's a hoot!

Didn't care for Steamed either and I do read some of that genre.  Just didn't seem to compare well to the rest of her work.
So this is Hell. I've got to remember to be a really bad girl when I get back.

Read Love in the Time of Dragons the other day and really enjoyed it, this is the new dragon sept series 'Light Dragon's with Baltic. Much better than the Silver Dragon series - although I did like the 3rd one better than the other 2
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I found myself laughing out loud at LitToD like I did when reading Drake and Aislings books. Doesn't hurt that Jim is still knocking about!  <32
