11:16 am - books finished
Yesterday morning I read Hot Target by Suzanne Brockmann. It's an um, action romance? romance with action? thrilling romance? romantic thriller? I forget exactly what category by brother used to describe it, but it was an enjoyable light read. Fast-paced, engrossing, and fairly complex for anything with the title embossed in hot pink foil and a blurb from Romantic Times on the back cover.

It's listed as part of the Troubleshooter series, which apparently follows the group of main characters seen in the book - which as book 8 of 12 is coming in a trifle late, I suppose - composed of Navy SEALs, ex-Navy SEALs and an FBI counter-terrorist team primarily.

I enjoyed reading it, and really liked how she handled the interplay of the different characters - who, in a romance novel first in my experience, are not all heterosexual. Kind of refreshing. It would be a good airplane book, and it was great to have around yesterday because getting drawn into reading it pulled me out of kind of a problematic and unpleasantly funky mood, for which I am grateful. Thanks again for lending it to me, faintheart.

Did you know that she attended the Dinner With Joss Whedon, auctioned off on Ebay for $11k (per 5 seats auctioned)? She wrote about it, but I can't find it on her bulletin board. If you look for it on whedonesque.com, I'm sure it's there somewhere. She seems pretty cool, smart, funny, etc., at least from that brief account.

No, I didn't! But I'm not surprised to hear it, when I think about it. Coolness. I'd agree with your assessment both from reading the book and its dedication and from poking around her website a little earlier this morning.
