Reading Romances Challenge 2013

I don't get a lot of time to read and rarely go about the task of actually reviewing them. Yes, I know that's horrible! I'm looking to change that in 2013.

Thanks to Nat with Reading Romances I'm going to review at least one book a month.

Here are the parameters for the Challenge:
  • JAN:    Marry me? –  Marriage of convenience. An arranged or forced marriage leads to love.
  • FEB:   Foreigners do it better! –  Greek, italian, spanish, french, brazilian, russians, sheiks! No English or North American heroes.
  • MAR:   The Avengers –  Man uses woman for blackmail, revenge, kidnapped, seduced etc .OR May The Games Begin! – two people fighting for the same prize and only one can win.
  • APR:    Beauty and the Beast  –  one of the main characters is physically marred in some way or a wounded hero, emotionally tortured.
  • MAY:    Summer Lovin’ – a couple is stranded together and the enforced intimacy leads to more. OR Nursing Back to Health –  hero or heroine is injured or near death and the other saves his/her life by nursing back to health.
  • JUN:   Who do you think you are?  –  One of a couple isn’t who he or she appears to be on the surface or pretending to be someone else or disguised.
  • JUL:    I’m BACK for good!  –  Reunited Lovers. Second chance or a first love rekindled story.
  • AUG :   Traditional or not!  –  time travel romance or a book with a love triangle.
  • SEP:   Bad Boys, whatcha gonna do? –  opposites attract. This can also be reversed with a bad girl/good boy.
