Repeated

I enjoy Janice Kay Johnson's novels a lot, but happening to read both of these Superromances by her within a short time period and finding this mental image repeated...

From No Matter What by Janice Kay Johnson (October 2012). The boy is 17 years old.
"Yes! I understand! Are you happy?" He hated the tremor in his voice. The little boy in awe of his daddy. The wriggling, squirming need to piss on the floor because daddy was mad at him.


From All That Remains, published a year earlier (October 2011).
She nodded, thinking that if she'd been a puppy her tail would be whipping and she'd be piddling on the floor in relief and pleasure because he wanted her help, because he was smiling at her. And that made her mad at herself.

I have a free copy of Built to Last coming to me. (Well, they might have changed something for the reprinting.) Plus a couple of historicals by a new-to-me author I've now read two novels by that I enjoyed a lot. And also I can't actually remember what the third book I bought is, I was trying to find something I didn't have by one of several authors I like, to hit the free shipping point.

The various incentives eHarlequin does do work rather well on me.

Three more

Darn it, I just found three more Janice Kay Johnsons, not counting one I left on the shelf deliberately or the one in the unread stretch of contemporary novels. I think the Under One Roof trilogy will live on the shelf instead of the three newer ones that were hiding from me. (Well back in the first row, oh double-stacking.)

While I expect to still need to double-stack, I'm working on putting some books into boxes.

I actually have too many novels by Janice Kay Johnson to all fit in one box. I didn't even include her historical novel Winter of the Raven.

I kept out one or two of the Superromances by her. Of those in the box, I put Taking A Chance on top, if only because I like the kitten on the cover. (Sadly there's nothing but furniture on the recent re-issue as Built To Last.)

Taking a Chance

I'm no end of enjoying reading Taking a Chance by Janice Kay Johnson.

The heroine is going to library school, studying cataloguing and classification in-between dates with her housemate's handsome brother. Chapter Four opens: "One week and a couple of dates with Ryan later, Jo was contemplating the less than absorbing problem of whether a given title should be classified in the Dewey Decimal 500s, as a scientific work, or in the 200s, as a metaphysical piece of crackpot science".
