Friday Finds ~ Treat To Me!

Now, this was my treat from Borders... I had $5 Borders bucks... and free shipping since I was not going to the store... So, these are the few that I chose!!!!
The first one (Tempt Me Tonight, Toni Blake) is thanks to VampFanGirl for her awesome review!!!
The second one (Right Here, Right Now, HelenKay Dimon) was needed due to the fact that I had all the other ones... I needed this one!
Then the last one (Graceful Submission, by Melinda Barron) was thanks to Book Junkie for such a wonderful review of this book as well.

The first two I found at Wal-Mart for... you read... $4 bucks!!! Besides being $4 bucks, the guys are super hot... so they were bound to wind up in my buggie!!!

Then, when I saw this cover, I knew I just had to have it!!! Need I say more... with the picture and the title... come'on!!I recently went eBook crazy.... *Some of these were free (yay, it was treat day!)*
Some of these are as short as 8-10 pages long and as cheap as $1.99... so I had no choice but to pick them up as well!!

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!!!! I am hoping that I get some quality reading time this weekend!


  1. Books!!
    Great shopping spree as always Cecile :D
    Makes me wanna go shopping too.

    Have a great day, I know I am having one, sitting outside in the sun...too bad my balcony is tiny. You can stand there, that is it. Perhaps I should just go to the beach

  2. LOL Love your justifications! I almost always talk myself out of impromptu purchases.

  3. That's a great list. Got a few new inspirations now. Hope you will fun reading them all.
    Wish you a nice weekend!

  4. Cecile,

    Very nice book haul. :) I'm looking forward to your reviews.

    Have a wonderful weekend. :)


  5. I am serious this time - The credit card must go...

    That notebook is a lethal weapon - I can imagine the staff at Borders quaking in their boots when you walk in, now you have been let loose on ebooks...

    Saints preserve us.....

    Loving the stash....

    Want to hear what you think of the Lora Leigh (soem seriousy hot men in those) and the Maya Banks (thre on one - yummmmmmy).


  6. Hmm. I bet you'll be reading this weekend, hmm??? I second Amy C's recommendation for The Butterfly Tattoo - make sure you have your tissues handy!!

  7. Again, you are my book buying idol;) Have a great weekend!!!!

  8. Cecile,
    Wow, you will be a busy girl! Great picks BTW. Glad you liked my review. I know you will love Graceful Submission. Right Here, Right Now was a keeper too!!!

    It's sunny here today, I'm with Blodeuedd, I'd love to go to the beach. Our beach has been closed all summer!

    Dottie :)

  12. Great haul! I'll wait to see your review for the Lora Leigh books, I saw them and almost bought them but ended up with something else instead - couldn't decide if I'd like them or not...

  13. AWESOME books! "Dangerous Games" by Lora Leigh is one of my VERY VERY favorites by her - top of my list and a shelf keeper.
    The other names like Maya Banks - you just can't go wrong with that name and those prices!
    Have fun reading and I can't wait to hear your reviews on them!

  14. Cecile, you are the book buying queen! So many great deals...You're gonna love Lora Leigh's seals/elite ops guys. So stinkin' hot! Can't wait to see what you think!

    Oh Aymless, I will always have a justification for buying books.... even down to "I had a rough day at work, to I did all my chores in the house, to I actually did what you (hubby) wanted to do today...!!!

    Thank you!! I am glad that I could offer to you new inspirations! I am hoping that I can at least get my hands on one of them this weekend, but I have to finish the one I am reading right now. I hope you have a great weekend and I hope that your exam was not tooo hard for you!!! I have faith in you!!!

    Oh, yea... I can not wait to read The Butterfly Tattoo. Oh, a tissue handy... damn!!!! Now I really can not wait!! Have a great weekend and I hope that Mayhem and Chaos find some more adorable poses for you to catch on camera!!!

    **Oh Mandi ***I am not worthy**But thank you for the compliment!!!! I hope you have a great weekend too!!!

  19. ~Book Junkie
    I was a busy girl!!! Thank you! Girl, I loved your review, it was awesome. Then I went peek at Ms. Melinda's web site and found some more that I can not wait to get my hands on!!! The rest of this Graceful Submission series looks awesome!!! Thank you. And I can not wait for Right Here, Right Now book. I will have to ask Ms. Dimon if I need to read in any type of order though... before I start reading!

    ~Amy C
    Awww, thank you for the kind words. I really do "hate" when I can't make here... due to work or house-work. I feel like I am missing my friends and what they are up too if I cannot be here.
    Thank you!!!

    T­hank you Barbara!!! I hope all is well on your end of the states!!!

  20. ~My Blog 2.0 (Dottie)
    Hey there honey!!! Girl, I always need to have a "story" when it comes to my books.
    That way, if hubby ever asks me... I know why I HAD to buy them!! LOL!!
    And yes, my deal was that I got some for Free!!! How can one resist that!

    Thank hon!!! With all this talk of the Op's, I might just have to reach out and read them now! But I haven't found the frist book at Borders when I went. So, I will have to see if the library has it or I will have to order it online. Well, I will definitely let ou know what I think of them. The men are hot, that is one thing I can tell you off the bat!!
    I hope you have a great weekend and I hope the nasty weather misses you. I am not sure we will be that lucky!

    Thank you ma'am!! I look forward to reading the Ms. Leigh's collection. Coming from you... I will definitely be dipping into the Op's men. I only have those two, but I will be getting the rest of them. Do you know if you HAVE to read them in order?
    And Maya Banks, yes you are right... you can't go wrong with her books!!!
    Thank you again and I hope you have a great weekend!

    ~Pelehini aka Lisa
    The Queen... well, I am not sure about that title.. but I do enjoy being in Borders (or any book store for that matter) and smelling the books, then they start to call my name... then my notebook demands attention and it demands that I buy what I have written down... So I try to make everyone happy; expect my check book!!! LOL!!!
    I hope you have a great weekend Lisa!

    ~Melinda Barron
    Oh, I will definitely let be emailing you, letting you know what I think!!! I am sure I will fall in love with it!! I just can't wait to get my hands on the others in the series!
    You are more than welcome for being included, how could you not after that wonderful review from Book Junkie!!!
    I hope you have a great weekend!!!

    Oh honey... I was so happy to find some for free and some for so cheap!! I love when I hit bargin books. I mean, don't get me wrong, I am all about being fair with the price of books and the money going where it deserves to go, but a cheap book is a cheap book!!! A deal is a deal! I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!!!

  21. Hi Cecile!

    Right Here, Right Now isn't related to any other books, so no worries about order of reading. Thank you for picking it up.
