The question for this week is:
What is your guilty pleasure as far as reading? Is it a genre, or is it a certain type of book?

Highlander Romances. They're pleasurable, and yeah, sometimes I do feel guilty (well, more like guiltily shameless and a little embarrassed) when I whip out the muscle-and-bare-chest-covered book, especially around hubs or out in public. But I flove the genre like no other—they're a true fantastical escape I need every one in a while, or I get a bit grumpy. The Bride by Julie Garwood is one of my favorites. At the moment, favorite Highland series would be The Highland Guard by Monica McCarty, in which Robert the Bruce has a secret army guard.
Feeling guilty? Yeah, me neither. :P I do, however, have an ARC of book #7, The Hunter, releasing June 25th (thank you, Ballantine Books!), and I haven't picked it up yet. Feeling a little guilty about that, but I'm trying to show some restraint and read the closer, upcoming releases first. It's the perfect Highlander series if you're ever looking for a thrilling political and romantic plot.

What about you? What's your guilty pleasure read?
Let us know in a comment below. We enjoy hearing from you! And feel free to leave us a link to your F&F Friday.

    My F&F

  2. I don't feel guilty, but I do feel embarrassed to read romances that have those kinds of covers out in public.

  3. Hopping through. Highlanders don't interest me. Maybe because I don't like Scottish accents. But a good Irish or British accent...
